Gone with plastic out of the box? It's easy to swap in a more premium back panel for your G4 In the weeks a head, thousands if not millions of buyers in the West will be getting their hands on the LG G4 in both plastic and leather flavors. But with the carriers likely to be getting their claws into the more attractive leather G4 variants, getting it might not be practical to get hold...

It's time to really compare: just how good is the LG G4's camera? LG's talking a big game about the quality of the LG G4's camera, and in the time we've been playing with it, it's certainly produced some impressive images. But it's also up against some impressive competition — smartphone… #android
It's time to really compare: just how good is the LG G4's camera? LG's talking a big game about the quality of the LG G4's camera, and in the time we've been playing with it, it's certainly produced some impressive images. But it's also up against some impressive competition — smartphone cameras have never been better than they are today, and today they're really good. So we're pitting...

Finally! We have Android devices with camera's at minimum on par with Apple and in some cases better. This was always my one regret switching over 3 years ago. Can't wait for the Note 5 later this year!

Looks just like the last one. Not really impressed with this incremental update tbh.

Testing out RAW on the #LGG4 (processed in PS CC).

A little OTT, but still crazy that you can get to this from a phone camera image.

If only Huawei were as good at software as it is at hardware
 
Huawei's latest flagship combines world-class hardware with software which is, at best, an acquired taste. #android
Huawei's latest flagship combines world-class hardware with software which is, at best, an acquired taste. The quick take The Huawei P8 is a great phone with a capable camera, long battery life and an expansive array of features, set back by weird software. The hardware is top-notch, but Huawei's EMUI 3.1 is buggy in places, and often at odds with Google's preloaded services....

Good stuff is coming. 
It's that time of year again, and by the looks of things Google has plenty of awesome to show us. Google's annual developer conference is right around the corner, and there's a lot to talk about this year. A lot has happened in the last 12 months that position Google to make some big announcements this year, continuing the bold new direction the company has taken Android, Chrome...

I reviewed a phone
 
LG needed an exceptional flagship this year, and the G4 is exactly that. #android
LG needed an exceptional flagship this year, and the G4 is exactly that. The quick take The LG G4 is as close as you can get right now to a no-compromise, high-end Android phone. Almost everything about it is done exceptionally well, from the best-in-class screen and camera, to the reliable all-day battery life. LG's software is quicker and more responsive than ever before, and the...

Excellent review! Definitely interested in handling the phone, but your review made me want it even more. You gave the good and bad without snark, and without whitewashing. Thanks!

I worry about this as well... But at the same time, I would have a removable battery and sd slot, and I'm currently on a Galaxy S3 that still runs great with Lollipop installed. Considering that it is about 3 years old now and still going strong, I'm sure the processor will be sufficient for a couple years at least!
