The front end of the Korean firm did not leave anyone indifferent to its new design, functions, camera and screen quality. The terminal was good and well made, but there was room for improvement. He will have achieved the LG G4?

continuity design but improved
LG know your design works . Although it is difficult to adjust at first to the back keypad, the truth is that once you get used it is essential to have it there. The design of the LG G4 comes to continue what was the LG G3 , although modifying all the “upgradable” things I had the LG G3, much as does HTC. The back cover is leather now instead of plastic, which give a sense more premium to decent high-end hand.
Another point is the touch screen. If something is highlighted by LG able to seize the body of the terminal minimizing bezels to highlight the display on the device. In the new terminal continues the firm opted for a 2K screen but with a particularity, which is that screen is slightly curved , which allow us to have better viewing angles when the sun was directly – which will improve with the Quantum Display technology -.
Best hardware and software but without surprises
The LG G4 is a natural evolution of LG G3, ie, is more or less what you would expect of a high range which replaces the previous one. Unlike the LG G3, G4 comes with LG 3 GB of RAM in all its forms, a Snapdragon 808 six-core processor at 1.8 GHz and Adreno 418 GPU some numbers and names We’re not used to seeing and apparently will give superior performance – what least not –
On the other hand we have the -in amperaje- same battery that LG G3 carried inside. This is one of the biggest challenges of LG, as if something has been criticized LG G3 has been its lack of autonomy. Hopefully the six-core processor that carries within it help optimize battery life . Will have to see how it affects the overall performance QuadHD display terminal and whether or not the processor gives the size.
Also, and we like that in the section of software have been added new features to the layer of customization of LG . These include Smart Notice 2 Super Fast Gallery and Smart Calendar, of which we have already spoken at length in this article. These new features come to make our experience with the terminal better and improve our personal organization. Although Andro4all always prefer pure Android, as long as the layer of customization to work well, such additions are always welcome .
If something has backed the new LG LG G4 is to improve the experience when using the camera. The photographic section was already good in the LG G3, as we told you in your analysis, but the Korean company wanted to improve it by adding opening f1 / 8 his camera , which improves the camera model above, will help improve the dynamic range and, therefore, to take better photos with a more intense color, since captures 80% more light . In the section of the video, both recorded in 4K.
also has the OIS 2.0 technology to enhance the stabilization photography three shutter speeds and allows take pictures in .RAW format. It added the Quick Shoot function, with which pressing twice on the volume button take a picture without unlocking the screen. As we already saw in the LG G3, we still have a laser and dual approach flash LED, although how many megapixels is extended to 16 instead of 13 and 7 instead of the 2, 1 having the LG G3 so that, at least on paper, the photographic section will be very much improved.
In short, we can say that LG G4 is a normal change from the LG G3 . The implemented improvements are to use the new hardware out there on the market, but the change from the previous range is Enough poor. The design, although good, is still continuity and LG G4, at first sight except the leather case seems LG G3 .
In hardware can not throw up our hands to the head, as it is sufficient improvement for a new model but did not know to what extent compensates buy a LG G4 having a LG G3 . Not to say that the LG terminal G4 is a bad, but after the generation gap we saw with the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, the new terminal LG seems too continuity. This does not mean that it is a terminal to consider and make it interesting, but wait for the analysis to draw conclusions further.
And you, what do you think the news of LG G4? Do you think it would be worth changing the LG G3 for him?
And you do you think? Head over LG LG G3 vs G4, is it worth the change? to leave your mark.
