The LG G4 is one of the latest Android flagship smartphones. The G4 features an excellent specifications profile as well as an equally impressive design concept.
The LG G4 borrows a lot from the LG G Flex but still remains true to its identity as LG’s 2015 flagship smartphone. A lot can be said about the G4 as it is truly a masterpiece, however, for now let’s focus on what the smartphone has to offer.
LG G4 Technical Specifications
Display Size: 5.5 inches
Display Type: IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen
Screen Resolution: 1440 x 2560 pixels
Screen Resolution Density: 538 ppi

The LG G3 features a 5.5-inch Quad HD Display. The G3 has a display profile that largely mirrors that of the LG G3.
One of the highlighted features of the LG G4 is obviously its amazing 1440 x 2560 pixels resolution. LG was among the first Smartphone vendors to embrace the use of 2K displays. The LG G4 is also among the device with the highest screen resolution density.
Frame Dimensions: 148.9 x 76.1 x 9.8 mm
Design is the core selling point of the LG G4. The G4 features a revamped look and borrows a lot of its design concept from the LG G Flex.
This is in the sense that the rear part of the smartphone is curved, an aspect that greatly enhances the ergonomic properties of the smartphone. That’s not all, the LG G4 comes in four design variants, a Metallic Gray cover, a white ceramic variant and most impressively the Black and Brown leather back version.
The leather back version looks exquisite and gives the device an ultra-premium look and feel, something similar to the one found on the Lamborghini Tauri 88.
Operating System: Android OS, v5.1 (Lollipop)
CPU: Dual-core 1.8 GHz Cortex-A57 & Quad-core 1.44 GHz Cortex-A53
RAM: 3 GB
Internal Memory: 32 GB
Micro SD: Yes, up to 128 GB
The LG G4 features a slightly sophisticated performance profile from the G3. We now have a Dual Core and a Quad Core CPU powering the LG G3. This is probably a tweak to enhance the performance of the battery while at the same time ensuring its optimal performance.
It is worthwhile to mention that the LG G4 lacks a 16 GB and 64 GB version and therefore, you can only get one with 64 GB of on board storage memory.
The LG G4 comes with Android OS, v5.1 (Lollipop) out of the box.
Rear Camera: 16 MP
Secondary Camera: 8 MP
LED Flash: Yes
The LG G4 has one of the best camera profiles that you will find on a flagship device. The 16 MP rear camera is an upgrade from the 13 MP rear snapper on the G3. LG also upgraded the selfie camera from the 2.1 MP on the G3 to the 8 MP on the G4.
It is also worthwhile to mention that the G4 features a slightly larger sensor size, an attribute that greatly improves the quality of images captured by the device.
Battery and Extras
Battery Capacity: Li-Ion 3000 mAh
A large 3000 mAh battery powers the LG G4. This is exactly the same battery capacity you will find on the LG G3.
The smartphone arena is largely the domain of Apple and Samsung, the two largest Smartphone vendors on the planet.
LG is trying hard to get a larger share of the market pie and the LG G4 is evidence that soon there could be a radical shift in the status quo.
The LG G4 is a premium smartphone that deserves the ‘flawless tag’, simple and clear.
