It’s that time of year again, Apple and Samsung restart their aggressive marketing campaigns with phones that don’t exist quite yet, and the phone that you just got with a 2-year contract last week became obsolete.
With the 2 heavyweights in the ring, people tend to forget about the other manufactures, and what they have to offer, which is why LG has expanded their smartphones into the same league as Samsung and Apple (either it’s too big, or it’s too small).
Here’s what to expect with the LGG4 and it’s siblings
- OS Android 5.1
- 64-bIt Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor X10
- RAM: 3GB, with dedicated graphics memory
- 5.5-inch IPS Quantum Display, 2,560×1,440-pixel
- Battery: 3000mAh
- Storage: 32/64 GB
- Camera: 16MP rear, with f/1.8 aperture, 4k video support.
- 8MP front facing camera
Overall, it’s a great phone to have, giving you High Def. selfies, and a great rear facing camera.
With that being said, let’s take a look at the two newest members of the LG family, named the LG G4 Stylus, and the LG G4c. Both featuring 720p displays, 1GB of ram and 8gb of storage gives the hint that they’re going to be substantially cheaper.
The G4 May appeal to some people looking for a smaller phone (when did 5 inch screens qualify as small?) but while it may be the “Mini Me” to the G4, it comes with a lower-resolution display, less memory and a less powerful processor (which is what I believe made the G4 amazing in the first place) The phone features a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, with a 2,540 mAh removable battery, microSD slot, support for 4G LTE, packed with an 8MP rear, 5MP front camera, and Running on Android 5.0.
The big brother to the G4, the G4 Stylus has a slight edge over the G4c, including a larger 3000mAh battery, and a 13MP rear camera… at least on the 4G model. A 3G model has an 8 MP camera, because we all know. if you aren’t using 4G, you shouldn’t be using a phone. Jesting aside, the Stylus also comes with a 1.2 GHz quad core processor, while a 3G model is available with an unspecified 1.4 GHz octa-core chip (is this the same model as the 8MP?)
Both models will be available on select markets in the coming weeks.
