Display

5.5" IPS Quantum Display
The LG G4 features a 5.5" display with in-plane switching (IPS) technology, which provides wider viewing angles and less glare. Featuring a Quad HD 2560 x 1440 native resolution, the LG G4 has 538 pixels per inch for ultra-sharp images.

The screen is built with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for high scratch resistance and durability. The LG G4 can play HD movies, YouTube streaming videos, and photos while delivering clean and clear visual quality. Increased brightness makes photos and videos easier to see, whether you're in a brightly lit room or outdoors on a sunny day. A broader range of bright to dark means everything on screen now has crisp whites and nuanced black with more shades in between. The range of the LG G4's display reproduces sunsets, selfies, salads and more in vibrant color that cover 98 percent of the DCI color space standard.

Performance

Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 Chipset
The Snapdragon 808 chipset features a big.LITTLE configuration, which uses two processors that work independently from each other. For everyday tasks, the LG G4 runs on the dual-core Cortex-A53 CPU for energy efficient. When you require more performance, the LG G4 switches over to the more powerful quad-core Cortex-A57 CPU. This setup allows the LG G4 to conserve battery life when not in heavy use while still providing the performance you need when you want it.

Power

3000mAh Battery
The removable, replaceable battery in the LG G4 lets you stay on the go while another battery charges. The high-loading battery boasts both a high capacity and a slim design, so it lasts and lasts without compromising the slim profile of the LG G4.
Smart Power Saver Mode
Smart Power Saver Mode extends battery life by utilizing improved technologies to reduce power consumption and turning off non-essential features at a certain battery level.

Operating System

Android 6.0 Marshmallow
The Android operating system integrates heavily with Google's services. Using the card-based Google Now, Android quickly surfaces information for you whenever you need it, powered by the same Knowledge Engine that runs Google's web search. It's a personalized and customizable OS, allowing you to add your favorite apps or widgets to your homescreen. You can even download new themes using the Google Play Store, which offers access to more than one million apps, games, books, music, movies, and more. Android 6.0 Marshmallow overhauls permissions, allowing you to have finer control over what your applications have access to. It also marks the debut of Now on Tap, a context-sensitive update to Google Now that checks your current screen for keywords and then searches for them automatically. Other performance and security enhancements are included as well.

LG LGUS991.AUSALD reviews

G4 US991 32GB Smartphone (Unlocked, Black Leather) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 146.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy or you'll be sorry It's a nice phone but it will not last long. I have 2 of this and both died unexpectedly after a year. The first one died after 15 months and that's when I learned about the boot loop problem. It affected thousands if not more all over the world and LG only admitted it after being pressured by an online petition. Even though it is a manufacturing hardware issue, they will not fix it if you're out of warranty. If you have them fix after your warranty expires, it's not worth it. So to save you from trouble, save yourself and do not buy this phone. Search LG G4 boot loop and you will know. Due to customer service experience, I can not recommend LG products anymore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I broke my old iPhone and decided to try an Android phone. Things I liked: This phone is easy to use and looks amazing. I especially like the leather detail. At first, I thought it would be too big, but it's not. Perfect for viewing videos. Takes great pictures and videos (even from a distance). The speaker can go to high volumes with clear sound...great for music. Things I didn't like: You can only add a filter after taking a picture, not before. Uncomfortable to put the phone to the ear. Does not come with headphones. I would put this phone up there with the best of Samsung and Apple. Considering the price, this is a great bargain...wonderful phone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid upgrade from the G3 Ordered this LG G4 as a replacement for an ailing G3. So far so good. It is noticeably superior to the G3 in all respects other than battery life; it's hard to get through a day without recharging when using this phone regularly (my G3, at least when new, had no trouble surviving a day). But I would consider myself a higher than average phone user, so keep that in mind. That being said, the screen and camera in this phone are fantastic, and it feels and looks pretty premium in the hand. I'd definitely recommend. Other notes: Mine was manufactured in April 2016 and it is able to get 4G LTE on Telus in Canada. I ordered it on a Tuesday night and it arrived in Ottawa, Canada by Friday morning!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You're going to love this phone. This is a great phone. My son has the G3 and sold me on the LG brand. It is an unlocked version and AT&T was very helpful with the SIM card and activation. Since it is unlocked, there is not all the pre-installed software that you will find on a carrier-supplied phone. I really like the button on the back. It takes a little while to get the feel of the button. It is a rocker type of switch. The middle is the off/on...toggle up or down and the volume adjusts. I always found the buttons on the side of other phones to be a pain. I was forever pressing one by mistake and sometimes losing the screen shot of what I wanted to share. It's really easy on the battery and lasts all day even with heavy use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Phone when leaving a Samsung Galaxy S3 Great phone. Great Camera. Great Battery Life. You can add extra storage. Very fast and responsive phone. And it has quick charge capability. Better than an IPhone 6s in advanced usage. The only drawbacks from having a perfect device are: 1) the WiFi drops out once in a while and you must toggle it off then back on (a software update should be coming soon), 2) the multi window should have more selection of apps that you can use on split screen, 3) the bit rate can be a little higher on 4K video recording. Otherwise, a brilliant piece of machine.
Date published: 2016-06-28
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not compatible on Verizon Despite much online research, with no-one either confirming one way or another whether this device would work on Verizon, I took the plunge and ordered this. Unfortunately, Verizon will not accept this model variant (US991) phone onto their network despite the G4 using the same CDMA bands that Verizon use. I understand this is Verizon's fault as they try and force us to buy from them. I just wanted to add to the knowledge base.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Price, Good Upgrade I purchased mine unlocked and on sale. I can't afford to purchase a new phone every year so I wanted to get something that would last and wouldn't cost a rent payment. And this phone met all the requirements and then some. It is packed full of features and sports one of the best cameras to grace a cell phone. I took the SIM and SD cards out of my LG Leon and transfered them over with no problems. The night of the purchase I got an over the air update to the Marshmallow 6.0 and unleashed The Kracken that is this beast of an Android. Pros: great for texting, great web browsing, long battery life, easy to use, great camera, useful apps, WiFi, GPS, 4g lte, durable, large screen, music, speakerphone, volume level, processor, memory, the black leather version is sexy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loved it while it worked Great photos. Really good. I like the LG skin of android, useful. Battery was sufficient (day and a half) with moderate usage if you turned all the comms off (BT, Wifi, location) other than the cell. (my workplace has wifi, but only for company devices, and I have an unlimited dataplan so I never use wifi) Big problem - there's a hardware trace problem with the phone that causes boot looping and eventual bricking of the phone. Mine worked flawlessly for 13 months. Then I had a month of boot loop, then it bricked. If your phone bricks within the warranty, you get a new phone. If it bricks just outside of warranty? You're hosed.
