LG G4 Review: Most Practical Flagship of 2015

By on Email @exolete

For its 2015 flagship, LG G4, the company decided to stick with what works. They gave us the most practical flagship of 2015 with brilliant cameras, excellent display, good build quality, good performance with no over-heating thanks to the Snapdragon 808 SoC being used on the G4 instead of the plagued SD810. LG opted to give a removable back on its flagship G4, removable battery and a microSD card slot to expand storage, something missing from several of this years' top smartphones. The LG G4 is certainly missing some features like in-built wireless charging or a quick-charger included within box but I would take those over the abysmal battery-life on the Galaxy S6 or the shoddy cameras on the HTC One M9. While Samsung was busy with re-inventing its Galaxy line-up and HTC was as usual struggling with cameras on its smartphones, LG have us the G4 - a phone that just works and works well.


LG G4 is the most practical smartphone of 2015 with a removable back, replaceable battery, expandable storage, excellent cameras and great display.
