It’s been just over a month since the LG G4 got launched and it has found itself taken apart. This time however it’s the guys over at MyDrivers who have done the deed instead of our usual suspects over at iFixit. Also you might want to note that the LG G4 is the only new flagship out there to have a microSD slot and a removable battery.
As it turns out, dismantling the phone is a piece of cake, with just the removal of the back panel, batteries and a few screws getting the phone to bear it’s innards. The phone’s motherboard is laid out clearly and is a bundle of neatly stacked components with no excessively messy wiring, copper shielding or adhesive in the way.
So if your LG G4 gets damaged and needs a fix, it should be pretty easy to get it repaired and it shouldn’t cost as much just to peel the device open though the components could still cost quite a bit.
Also check out our first impressions on the LG G4 for more info on the phone itself.
Hot on the tail of launching the premium LG G4 smartphone and announcing the LG G4 Stylus and G4c, the brand has confirmed that it will be launching a new flagship device by the second half of this year.
According to sources, LG confirmed that a new flagship that “stands above the G series” is in the works, with predictions pointing towards the new device potentially being the successor to the LG G Pro 2 to compete with Samsung’s Galaxy Note line of devices. This is part of the brand’s “dual flagship strategy” which it kicked off last year with the launch of the G Pro 2.
However, the specs have yet to be finalized but LG says that the new phone will be pretty high-end. But the big question is how exactly is LG going to one up the LG G4?
In hopes of catching a bit of the traction created by the launch of their latest flagship smartphone the LG G4, LG has brought to market two lower-end variants of the LG G4 in hopes the public will snap them up. The larger phone will be going by LG G4 Stylus and the smaller variant will be known as the LG G4c, both of which featuring similar designs and features to the original G4. In terms of looks, both phones feature a similar curved body with buttons mounted under the camera.
The Samsung Galaxy S series has always been the defacto Android flagship. Apart from having the best spec in each iteration, most power users would appreciate its removable battery and the option of adding a microSD if needed. This however changed when they introduced its Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. Opting for premium build quality and aesthetics, the new Samsung flagship has dropped most of its expansion options, which is a let down for certain die hard fans.
Coming from the neighbouring camp in South Korea, the LG G4 has emerged and it seems to be a formidable rival for Samsung. Does it stand a chance against the Galaxy S6? Read on to find out.
If the latest flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9+ isn’t your cup of tea, you could probably consider this. The LG G4 looks distinctively different from the rest and is now available in Malaysia. Since LG Malaysia is still laying low in the smart phone business, local retailer DIrectD has imported a couple of units for your buying pleasure.
Just when you thought the Galaxy S6 edge was expensive, the LG G4 from DirectD is offered at RM3,799, inclusive of 6% GST. It comes in either Metal Gray, Genuine Leather Black and Leather Brown. You read that right, Genuine Leather, not “plastic made to look leather” like the Galaxy Note 3.
The beautiful LG Watch Urbane went on sale internationally last week and DirectD is now making it available in Malaysia. Being an imported set, the LG Urbane Watch is priced at RM1,599, which is about the same price as the Apple Watch Sport which we’ve gotten recently.
It runs on Android Wear and it looks stylish with a round display that mimics a mechanical watch. At the front, it gets a clear 1.3″ P-OLED display that does 320×320 pixels resolution and it runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with 512MB RAM and 4GB of storage.
Looks like the leaks were true, and now that it’s been launched, LG’s G4 flagship smartphone is more than just a looker.
With the official launch happening today, the LG G4 once again has it’s beans spilled as it’s specs get revealed ahead of launch.
LG’s wearable will also become available in Canada, France, Germany, Australia, Hong Kong, Ireland, India, Italy, Spain, Japan as well as the UK and the US later this month.
The LG G4 that’s launching end of this month is expected to shake up the camera phone segment with its faster f/1.8 lens. To showcase its imaging capabilities, they have engaged professional photographer Colby Brown to use the LG G4 as his new camera.
From the teaser, he highlights the G4’s low light capability, colour accuracy and better controls with an array of manual settings. At the moment, the Galaxy S6 / S6 edge with a 16MP f/1.9 shooter is a stellar camera phone and it looks like LG is trying to have an edge over it with a faster f/1.8 lens coupled with a 16MP sensor with Optical Image Stabiliser.
Watch the teaser after the break.
