LG G4 – Launch Event Hands-On

by birtanpublished on April 13, 2021

Haver is david with android police and we are in New York City at LG's g4 launch and this is the g4 and behind it as a g3 for scale you can see this is one of the plastic versions not the leather edition this is the white color I guess LG says there is some kind of ceramic materials in this white plastic cover I tried to lift it off it does feel a little stiffer than your average plastic cover verbum the diamond pattern on it is actually kind of cool in person I don't know how well it really comes across and video but here at the launch it does look pretty nice the phone itself as you can see the aesthetic is

Very similar the g3 although more refined I think you're going to find the edges seem a little sharper and you get some design cues from the G flex 2 we don't have one of those with us but this phone definitely takes from that device to some extent and also some of LG's more recent mid-range launches as you've probably heard by now it has a snapdragon 808 processor which was rumored for awhile as LG was having issues with snapdragon 810 and heat and throttling and such the snapdragon 808 is a hexa core chip LG is claiming a maximum clock speed a 1.8 giga hertz and

You've got some new qualcomm modem tech in here and some new qualcomm navigation technology that works with the device to use the gyroscope in the barometer apparently to assist your gps and more consistently keeping your location in areas where GPS doesn't work well and that's you know that's an interesting feature we haven't had time to try it out yet but as you can see as far as the software goes it's LG software layer it's not hugely changed from the g3 there definitely are some differences but the underlying Android version here is five dot one which is

Nice meaning this phone should launch with the most recently announced version of Android when it hits the market which we have no idea when that is or how much it will cost the camera has been a big talking point for LG here with this phone they're talking about you know the f-18 lens which is a pretty wide aperture for sure you also get the new color ometer sensor basically on the back here that does an RGB scanned the scene before you take a picture too according to LG more accurately represent colors and you also get you know the typical flash you get LG's

Laser autofocus which is awesome I it's really my favorite feature at the g3 and you get a new version you get the three axis or TV sixaxis technically speaking optical image stabilization with LG's o is 2 point 0 which should be pretty great I hope the battery is still removable it's 3,000 milliamp hours there is a microSD card slot in this phone LG made kind of a I wouldn't say a big deal out of it but they're definitely you know trying to differentiate from competitors with that we haven't looked at the leather version of bone yet but I mean teach their own

The black version is probably the least offensive in my opinion but these plastic ones they do look nice and they feel definitely more premium than the g3 I think I still don't think we're looking at samsung galaxy s6 kind of build quality of materials here but they're nicer than last year's phones for sure I think when we get a review unit we'll see we'll get provide some more thoughts there as far as the software layer the number of changes aren't huge it still feels like the old LG software I think my okay now and new features will discuss those

Again when we get a review unit but the screen has also been a big point for LG they're claiming it's essentially able to get brighter while using less power and has a much wider color gamut about twenty-five percent increase over the g3 and you can tell I mean this display is bright and vivid it it really does look very good Bob to you know put it up against some of the latest super amoled tech from Samsung to see how it really holds up but just here in this controlled environment it looks really nice as far as per camera performance again we can't test that just yet and

Once again we have no idea how much this phone will cost when it's coming out which carriers will get it or if we'll get the leather versions in America at all so I think they'll at least be purchasable back covers since the cover is removable so that is our brief overview of the LG g4
