THE-DEVIL, 22 May 2015Read my points carefully. This is about how efficient the Exynos is compared to Snapdragon.
... moreYou only proved lg does lousy batterylife optimization, nothing else, not that they ever cared about innovating in that area, nor tech nor softwarewise....
They just bump out the best screen they can, and so what if batterylife suffers, as long as they market it for screen and camera, and people buy it for it...who cares about optimizations and better user experience?
They ask too much for what it gives, just as samsung for s6 does

"The screen is LG's own creation as none of the top display manufacturers had what the G4 needed. The company calls it a "Quantum Display," not be confused with Sony's quantum dot screens."
...you didn't understand?

If I, for example, say s6 having no sd card is no problem at all as you get an extra 32 gb micro usb with every 32gb s6 to solve that lacking feature that is bothering fans....
I would probably sound like a selfdelusional fan...
But whatever makes fans happy, if extra free battery is the solution that pleases...go for it
Read my points carefully. This is about how efficient the Exynos is compared to Snapdragon.
Note: GSMArena measures batterylife at 50% brightness.
G4 (at 50%) - 108nits
S6 (at 50%) - 208nits
S6 - 2550mAh
G4 - 3000mAh
Also consider that 808 is just like half as powerful as Exynos 7420.
So, looking at this it looks like LG G4 should have like 50% more battertlife.
G4 - 474 mins - 3000mAh = 9.48 sec/mAh
S6 - 656 mins - 2550mAh = 15.44 sec/mAh
Don't forget S6 is doing this with double brightness and higher performance.
G4 - 443 mins - 3000mAh = 8.86 sec/mAh
S6 - 732 mins - 2550mAh = 17.22 sec/mAh
Now, make your own decision. The facts give you obvious picture, it's not something to argue about.

Sony has been using for yearsss.....
LG fans stay calm . .
what a pathetic battery life . that's what you pay for the useless QHD .
SONY is the undisputed KING of battery life . . with 2days battery life .

In just second no need to wait for an hour to re charge your phone's battery.
The display is great also the camera is really and truly amazing!
This is actually a good review.
The Display is better than last year
One of the best right now
The camera both front and back are amazing
The design (leather back) is good looking
The Swappable battery and expandable memory is great idea and very practical in daily usage....
The processor might not be the best but its more than enough to satisfy your daily works.
Battery is become better on browsing and overall its a good.
Plus you can have an extra one.
All in all Bravo LG!
I made my final decision G4 is my next phone.
LOL so this is LG's flagship mid-ranger.
The camera is indeed nice, maybe better than S6 (can't say, will wait for comparison review).
The display is extremely over-saturated. It has temp of 8000+ K and that's not oversaturated GSMA? Nice!
The battery life is 'wondeful'.
The built according to GSMA is top notch. Yeah sure, I know how LG phones are built, this is no exception. If someone thinks adding a leather back strengthens a device, then I will not say anything but smirk.
As usual, an LG phone.
Samsung flagship this year: best screen, sAMOLED with great color accuracy and also popping out colors (optional), best SoC, beating snapdragon 810 in both thermal and process power aspect, 14nm finfet with 3gb of ram DDR4 x problematic 20nm soc... best battery life because has the better efficient screen and processor; one of the best fingerprint scanner, fast, and "one touch" style... hdr 5mpx front camera plus the best smartphone camera with 16mpx (sorry lg, I prefer s6 camera) + optical image stabilization and the famous samsung hdr capability... IMO the best desing too, with the galaxy s6 edge... I have to say more?

for a ips 2k 10 incher with sd810, and prerelease unit on that, over 12h browsing and over 14h video is...remarkable (Sonys optimizations)
And my fear turn out true...
When LG announced the G4 specification highlighting the display among others, I commented that it would have been nice to get more efficiency to go along with the improved contrast and colors. But now G4 provides worse battery life in test.
What's wrong, LG? If your display eats too much into battery life, I suggest to replace it. If something else is the culprit, then fix it ASAP...
Great device anyway...
TannHauser, 22 May 2015Do visit z4 tab review ;-) 6,000 mAH battery.
The Z4 isn't going to do any better than the S6 in battery life. It'll have about the same battery life as the G4.
TannHauser, 22 May 2015Ouch, the batterylife...
Echooo from last years g3 comment
Enjoy your unoptimized 2k screen... moreHuh? The S6 has good battery life.
It has the best battery life out of all 2015 flagships so far.
