LG’s latest flagship, LG G4, is finally here. And we got the privilege to unbox first the beast out of its box.
The LG G4 we received is the dual-SIM 4G LTE genuine leather variant (metallic back costs 1k lesser). Both sim slots can accommodate 4G LTE connection simultaneously.
LG Philippines announced that they’re are throwing a free 32GB microSD card, expanding G4’s internal storage of 32GB. If you like to max out the storage, you can add up to 128GB of microSD card.
If you’ve loved the LG G3 then you’ll surely love the G4 more. Why? It feels sleeker and more premium. Thanks to the slighty curved body and leathery feel of the back, the LG G4 is comfortable and easy to hold in hands. It’s also worth mentioning that this is a genuine leather layered on a polycarbonate case.
The 5.5-inch profile of LG G4 is incredibly small compared to the size of other devices such as the iPhone 6 plus. I’m impressed how LG managed to squeeze the 5.5-inch screen into a 5-inch body. I’m happy that I can just put the G4 in any of my pockets.
LG continued to put the rear-keys and power button behind. But it only took a bit of time to get used when using the physical keys.
LG G4 comes with the latest LG Optimus UX4 UI on top of Android 5.1 Lollipop. Anywhere is smooth and fluid to use even while running a 2K video on window mode. I’ll still be using the G4 extensively, so watch out for our upcoming review.
Depending on where you will buy the LG G4, official LG price starts at P32,000. But from online you can get the LG G4 for as low as P26,500 including the free microSD card and a battery case including a 2-yr LG warranty.
