Since 2009, LG has produced cutting-edge mobile phones in a wide variety of price points, including basic pre-paid phones, as well as high-end consumer and professional level smartphones.

The LG G3 proved to be a fantastic mid-level phone, offering a 5.5 inch Quad HD display to compete with other larger-display phones such as the Galaxy Note 3 and DROID Maxx.

The G3 is well known for its fantastic 13MP camera and smart features, making it a great value.

So how does the LG G4 stack up to its predecessor? Our LG G4 review will let you know how the features compare to some of the great tech on the market today.

Appearance


Similar to the Note 4, you can get your LG G4 with a genuine leather back in either black or brown.

However, you do have the option of having a more traditional metallic back in either white or grey, which is not an option with the Note 4.

Camera


The camera on the G4 is an improvement from the G3, offering three more megapixels on the rear camera as well as a manual mode for photography fans. At 16 megapixels, the LG G4 offers twice the megapixels of the iPhone 6, which means the G4 is a better choice for users that enjoy taking high-quality photos.

Battery Life

The LG G4 has a 3,000mAh battery with wireless charging capabilities of the G3. Thanks to a newer and more efficient processor, you should be able to enjoy longer battery life than on the G3.

Compared to other similar phones, the iPhone 6 has a 1,810mAh battery, and the Galaxy Note 4 has a 3,220mAh battery. The G4 and Note 4 are going to be better bets if battery life is a concern.

The G4 offers a new super power save mode that will turn off all non-essential phone features while they aren’t being used. That way,  you can keep in contact with someone even if you don’t have access to a charger.

Storage

All those selfies of you at various vacation destinations take up valuable storage real estate! You want to make sure you have a phone with enough storage so you don’t have to choose between the pic of the World’s Largest Donut and the World’s Largest Ball of Yarn; the G4 has room for both!

The LG G4 offers a feature that seems to be going away on a lot of phones, and that is an SD card slot. The G4’s SD card slot offers the ability to handle up to a 2TB microSD card. If storage isn’t a big concern for you or you don’t want to have to purchase a microSD card, the phone comes with 32GB of onboard storage.

These features are carried on from the LG G3 and are some of the best available on a smartphone. The Note 4 comes with 32GB of onboard storage but only offers support for a 128GB microSD card, and the Galaxy S6 has no microSD slot.

Unique Features


As if the G4 wasn’t amazing enough on its own, it can be used with the one-of-a-kind, LG Watch Urbane.

Most smartwatches have a square or rectangular shape that can make them appear awkward, but the LG Watch Urbane looks just like any other high-end watch. It features a full-circle OLED display to give it clarity so it would pass off as a regular watch at a glance.

With Android Wear, you can complete many functions on your LG G4 such as answering calls and texts, and getting navigation instructions.

The Final Verdict

If you like the more traditional appearance of the LG Watch Urbane compared to others, you should definitely consider purchasing the LG G4.

If you love taking pictures and love being able to set up the perfect shot by changing various settings rather than simply pointing and shooting, the manual mode on the G4 would most likely be a great fit for you.

If you travel a lot for work, having the large microSD card support could come as a convenience for you. Rather than having to carry around an external hard drive, you could use the large storage capacity of the G4 to store files on the phone. The G4 also has HDMI support with an adapter, so the G4 could easily carry videos for sales demonstrations rather than having to haul around a laptop.

If you currently own a LG G3, you might want to hold off on purchasing the G4 unless you really like that new smartwatch. The only major upgrade is going to be that the G4 will have Android Lollipop, but there’s also the possibility that your carrier will update the G3 to Lollipop, if they haven’t already.
