Camera samples of the LG G4 emerge, look pretty impressive

The LG G4 is expected to break cover on April 28 as the company’s teasers have revealed. But it seems like the smartphone will be revealed bit by bit before its official unveiling later this month.

Today, we’re getting an idea of what the G4’s camera is capable of courtesy of a few sample shots and a promo video published by the company.

From the sample image available, it is quite clear what the f/1.8 sensor on the smartphone can do. In what appears to be a major shift, LG is trying to target professional photographers with the camera here. The company has even hired a professional photographer to talk about the camera of the new flagship.

The sample image looks very impressive and we can’t wait to get our hands on the G4 to tell you more about its potential. LG is utilizing a 16-megapixel sensor with the G4, so it’s on level pegging with the Samsung Galaxy S6 which is currently touted to be the best Android phone available.

A little over a week ago, we came across a large collection of press images of the LG G4, showing the device in its entirety. So the handset is barely a secret ahead of its launch next Tuesday.

Purchase the LG G4 in South Korea, Receive One LCD Replacement Free of Charge

Posted by Tim-o-tato April - 20 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off

LG is preparing hype for the upcoming G4 in its home country of South Korea, announcing that for those who pre-order and purchase the device, will be given a free LCD replacement should anything bad happen, free of charge within the first year. 

According to LG’s announcement, South Korea is just 22 days away from the start of pre-orders, which will be held until May 31. As for US pre-orders, these same dates may not apply, as US carriers and LG will need to work out the specifics. We should know more about that on April 28, though, when LG makes the phone official in New York City.

In addition to a free screen replacement, buyers are also getting free gifts from mobile operators, such as a free 64GB SD card. For would-be fans of the new Galaxy S6 lineup, maybe the G4, with its removable battery and SD card slot will be the phone of your dreams. Do note, these announcements were for South Korea, and it is unknown if these same offerings will be made available to US customers.

Again, April 28 is the date you all need to mark on your calendars. We will be in NYC to get hands-on and all of the info we can regarding a launch.

LG G Flex 2 Available on AT&T Starting April 24, $299 With 2-Year Agreement

Posted by Tim-o-tato April - 20 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off

The G Flex 2 from LG, which was the highlight of CES this past January, is now coming to AT&T after being only available on Sprint. We have already reviewed the G Flex 2, concluding that while the design and display are nice, the overall performance of the device and LG’s skin is enough to make you second guess your purchase.

The phone features a 5.5″ Full HD P-OLED display, Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM, 3,000mAh battery, 13MP rear-facing shooter, and runs Android 5.0+ out of the box. 

Now, the one main pain point with the device launching on AT&T is the price. For those of who enjoy contracts, you can get the device for $299 on a new two-year agreement. That’s a lot of up-front cheddar. If the Next program suits you, well-qualified buyers can pick it up with $0 down, followed by 24 equal payments of $30 a month. There is also varying levels of how much you can pay on Next, which would shorten or lengthen your payment periods.

Off contract, AT&T wants $709. Compared to Sprint’s $500, this seems like a rip off.

If you still want it, it will be available starting April 24.

Korean LG G4 phones to get one year of free screen replacement

Posted by wicked April - 20 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off

LG G4

The LG G4 is gearing up to be a pretty amazing device. Given that the G3 was heralded as one of the better devices of 2014, the G4 should follow suit and there will be many who will most likely pick it up. That said, it looks like LG is sweeting the pot a little bit by offering a year of free screen replacement if you meet certain criteria.

In order to get the screen replacement, you have to purchase the device before May 31, and you have to be in Korea. Yeah that’s right, this is currently rumored to be a Korean exclusive for the time being. LG is also throwing in a 64GB microSD card into the deal. But that’s not just it.

The phone is set for a Tuesday, April 28, announcement.

LG shows off the ‘professional grade’ camera inside the LG G4

Posted by wicked April - 20 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off

Camera quality has become an increasingly important feature to LG’s smartphones, and the company has already confirmed that the upcoming LG G4 will feature an improved 16 megapixel, f/1.8 aperture rear camera module. To help showcase the handset’s photography prowess, LG has brought in professional landscape photographer Colby Brown to take a few snaps and talks us through the features. See the video above.

Brown suggests that the smartphone’s camera offers superior color accuracy by automatically recognising indoor and outdoor environments, boasts a flexible “manual mode” to adjust your shutter speed and white balance, and that the f/1.8 aperture allow for brighter, lower noise images in low light conditions.

The collection of the images in the gallery below, taken from the video, all look rather impressive, and were apparently captured with an LG G4.

While a smartphone camera is unlikely to temp a professional or serious amateur photographer away from their gear, closing the quality and feature gap between everyday portable smartphone cameras and expensive, high-quality equipment is goal worth pursuing. We can’t wait to get our hands on it to see if the LG G4 can rival the impressive quality offered by the Samsung Galaxy S6’s camera.

Korean LG G4 early adopters get 64GB card, screen replacement

Posted by wicked April - 20 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off

A few days before the April 28 unveiling, LG continues to give us hints by releasing video teasers. It’s been confirmed that the newest LG flagship phone will have a genuine leather back based on the official invite. Before all these, we’ve seen several leaked photos, front and side views, and some information that it will be radically different and will probably be the last “G” phone.

In South Korea, LG will start offering the G4 from the day of launch until May 31. Those who will pre-order within this period will receive a free 64GB memory card and a one-time LCD screen replacement up to one year after the date of purchase. This promo will be available to everyone who buys the LG G4 regardless of the mobile carrier.

LG G4

We have yet to see the full list of specifications but there are numerous sources saying that the LG G4 will feature a 5.5-inch QHD display panel, a 16-megapixel main camera with f/1.8 lens by LG Innotek, optical image stabilization, dual flash, the recently launched UX 4.0, and a 3,000mAh battery. The leather back is no longer a rumor but we’re not sure if it’s removable or actually permanent. Offer is exclusive to South Korea only and on the three mobile carriers in the country: SK Telecom, KT, and of course, LG Uplus.

Special deals including an LG G Watch will also be offered. Early adopters will be delighted to know that the LG G4 will also be available in a multitude of colors and not the just the rustic brown version we’ve been seeing in photos lately.

There may not be many surprises left to reveal about the upcoming LG G4, but the company has just lifted the lid on a new warranty offer for the handset. Korean customers who purchase the G4 before the dealine will receive a one-time screen replacement and a 64GB microSD memory card completely free.

To qualify for the offer, customers must order their smartphone before May 31st, suggesting that the handset will hit the shelves promptly after its official unveiling at the end of this month. Customers in Korea can apparently begin pre-ordering their smartphone starting this Wednesday. If you complete your purchase before the deadline, LG will replace your broken screen, just once, up to a year after your purchase.

In the same post, LG also reaffirmed that its latest flagship will come with a 16 megapixel, f/1.8 aperture rear image sensor and an 8 megapixel front facing camera. We also know that the smartphone will launch with a new ‘Quantum’ QHD display and a variety of leather back covers.

Sadly for the rest of us, LG has confirmed that this offer will be made exclusive to South Korea. The LG G4 will be unveiled in New York on April 28th.
