I am always looking for the next best thing when it comes to smartphones. I need something that is user-friendly, allows me to multitask through the use of apps and takes quality photos. That’s not a lot to ask for in a smartphone, right? You wouldn’t think so, but I’ve been through four different phones in the last year, each of which had one or two of those fabulous features…but never all three. LG is changing the game with their brand new LG G4 – we’re talking a great Android operating system, a fantastic camera, as many apps as my little heart desires and...it looks really cool too!
As you may recall, I’ve tested out quite a few smartphones over the years simply to check out the camera. I’m happy to report that the LG G4 has a fantastic camera, with a whopping 16 megapixels!
The LG G4 Camera Features
f/1.8 aperture for impressive performance in low light situations. Say goodbye to those blurry nighttime photos!
The LG G4 has manual mode with 15 settings and over 135 options, which is optimal to gain control over how your photos are captured and an improved Laser Auto Focus so you’re always ready to capture the moment, even when you – or your subject – is on the go!
The LG G4 has a 16MP rear facing camera and an 8MP front facing camera for high quality photos and selfies. I know, I am not the biggest taker of selfies personally, but I really like that if I WANT to take a selfie, I know that it will be totally flattering!
The LG G4 has improved Optical Image Stabilization steadies the shot for sharp, focused images, and RAW image file capture for the highest possible image quality!
The LG G4 Display Features
One of the first things I noticed when testing the LG G4 was the cutting edge 5.5” IPS Quantum display. It really lends itself to an outstanding visual experience and the 25% brighter display means that your screen is always totally clear, even in various lighting conditions. The LG G4 has a 50% improvement in contrast for richer images and Quad HD resolution with 538 PPI for incredible detail. I wish everyone was looking at my Instagram photos from an LG G4…
The LG G4 Design Features
The LG G4 is available in a few different back coveres: genuine leather, metallic and ceramic-style. I have the leather back cover on my LG G4 and I love it! I think it’s really classy and I love that I don’t have to worry about putting a case on the phone.
I am getting used to the larger size of the LG G4 compared to the old phone I was using, but I like that it’s not too big to fit in the palm of my hand. It has a gentle curved design for ergonomic comfort and I appreciate that like you wouldn’t believe – my smartphone is always in my hand and I suffer from carpal tunnel in my right hand, so the ergonomic design makes using the phone very comfortable!
The LG G4 also has an upgradable memory of up to 2TB, with a micro SD card and a replaceable high capacity 3,000 mAh battery. Pretty high tech, right?
