When our Business Intelligence colleague, Dave McLellan told us he’d ordered the new LG G4, we were keen to see how he got on with it. Did the leather-bound executive styling match processor performance?
“Having owned the ground-breaking LG G2 I wasn’t hesitant in getting my hands on the G4 – and, when images were released, seeing the new slim arc design made me want it even more.
“I’m pleased to see that all the features that made the G2 such a great device are back on the G4, teamed with an eyebrow raising leather design which makes it feel even better in the hand.
“The screen is absolutely unbelievable, super vivid and deeper black make the experience so much more enjoyable. QHD is definitely the way forwards with smartphones; you will struggle to find any pixilation even with the best eye sight!
“When it comes to processing power, Snapdragon 808 is powerful enough to run any application that you can think of without any hiccups. Games run silky smooth and look great paired with the QHD screen.
“For me personally, my favourite aspects of this handset is the camera. It simply beats any camera phone that I’ve ever used and is on the verge of SLR quality. With 16mp under the hood and an f/1.8 lens, photos are truly stunning in any conditions. For all you selfie lovers, the front 8mp snapper produces some great photos too.
“Unlike other new flagships the G4 comes with a removable back cover in which you can swap out the battery and pop in a micro SD card, ideal for movies and all of those high quality photos that you may want to store.
“The phone also provides quick charging – 60% in just 30 minutes – making it perfect for heavy users.”
“There are additional things that you may not notice that make this device a solid choice. For instance, double-tapping the screen to lock or unlock, holding down the volume down button to take a photo within seconds and so many more.
“Overall the LG G4 is a great handset and certainly feels more luxurious than any other device that I have used.
“LG have made massive strides in the smartphone market and I can’t wait to see what they do next.”
