With its big display, great performance, and excellent camera, LG’s flagship G4 is a smartphone to consider if you’re in the market for a new device.
Featuring a 5.5-inch quad-HD display, removable 3,000mAh battery, and 16MP rear camera, LG revealed the G4 at an event in New York on 28 April 2015.
The presentation focused on the exterior curved “slim arc” design of the device and its leather, ceramic, or metal back cover; the large removable battery; and its high-resolution cameras and wide aperture lens.
You get all the accessories you would expect with a new smartphone – headset, charger, USB cable – as well as two back covers: one plastic, and one leather.
As a contract launch offer, LG is also including a 32GB microSD card with the G4, as well as an extra battery on some deals.
Looking under the bonnet, the LG G4 features a 1.8GHz hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor with 3GB RAM.
Its 16MP camera sports an F1.8 lens, 1/2.6″ sensor and OIS 2.0 – which complemented by a wide-angle 8MP front-facing camera.
The G4 is supported on MTN and Vodacom FDD-LTE (1,800MHz) and all SA operators’ 3G and 2G networks, but not on Telkom’s TD-LTE (2,300MHz).
The device is currently available through all local mobile networks on a number of sub-R500 per month contracts.
