LG’s flagship phone should be the top pick for those that value smartphone cameras. Meanwhile, its modern design (especially the leather-clad version), ergonomics, and excellent display should appeal to everyone else.
The aforementioned stitched leather back panel is both a significant visual and tactile upgrade over other smartphones in the same price range. Some people will dismiss this as a minor surface treatment, but that little change makes a big difference in how the G4 feels in your hand.
Being one of the few high-end devices to retain the removable battery is also a major advantage, but we would have loved to see even better battery life out of the LG G4. There is likewise room for improvement in terms of the chipset performance.
But all in all, LG has confirmed its position at the top of the Android smartphone mountain with the G4.
- Fantastic rear shooter
- Great design and build quality
- Display features sharp imaging, realistic colors, and deep contrast
- Chipset is not what we would expect of a flagship
- Imprecise screen brightness settings
- Insufficient battery autonomy
