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 display is also a capacitive touchscreen so it supports multi-touch gestures found in Android. The LG G4 can playback 1080p Full HD content. 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 US991 Reviews

    G4 US991 32GB Smartphone (Unlocked, Black Leather) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 146.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not even lasted for 6 months Bought last May'17. Started facing problems in 3 months and now it is completely unusable
    Date published: 2018-03-11
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not recommending Not bad performances overall, however, after having it for a year, the volume on the phone became very low. It is hard to hear anything during the call. I read online, and it's a known problem of this phone. The speaker and the headphones work fine. Otherwise, pretty fast, but since hearing is one of the core telephone features, I would not neither buy again, nor recommend this phone to the others. I had a bad experience with LG phone a few years ago, but I decided to give LG another chance with this one. I regret it.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware...!! Avoid LG G4. It will not gonna last more. I bought my LG G4 in last week of March 2017. I'm using it for MetroPCS. Everything was looking good for 1-2 weeks & then i had difficulty with network. frequency of call dropping increases, going direct to voice mail while someone is calling, network signal becomes weaker & so wireless network. After a month's use, battery draining fast (even on stand-by), phone getting hotter (Top Left side), apps running slow & touch response lagging. After 3 month of use, screen starts flickering, screen splitting in half, screen discoloration, blank screen (white screen) as well as 'Black screen' & then next week screen issues becomes permanent (100% of time when it woke up). Now, it doesn't wake up after screen turn off. Can't do system reset by removing battery & hold power button for 1 min. (works only 1 in 20-25 times). When it works, screen still not behaving, so you can't use it either way. When someone is calling you, you can't pick up your phone because you can't see anything on screen, if by chance someone calls you during its woked up, you can't hear them properly because call drops almost everytime. Try to sent to LG for repair, but online request says IMEI number is invalid. No idea if B&H sent me authorized LG or not...?? Did 'Factory Reset' today, still no luck; screen issues continues. Want to return it, but LG says IMEI invalid and B & H says not returnable. Will never buy LG nor from B&H again...!! (even after product page says 1 year manufacture warranty) This phone LG G4 has serious hardware as well as software issues & they are selling it with knowledge of these issues. LG should recall these phones...!! I had 2 LG phones before which had battery & network problems, but i was never going like these trauma (if you use it for your profession as i do). Will go back to my samsung (even it also had battery problem).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from LG Makes A Good Phone!! This may not the greatest phone on the planet... but it's up there. In fact, I cannot think of a single 'con' to report. 3 GBS of RAM make this phone fast and responsive. An octagon processor lets me work on multiple apps at the same time. The screen is more than 5 inches, and the Wifi stretches. Now, realize this phone is 2 years old; a 2015 model. But it is brand new, with a full one-year warranty and it worked like a charm, right out of the box. Because it's an older model, the price was low, low, ,low... and I would recommend it to anyone!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware LG G4 flaws that will brick phone We had purchased 3 LG G4 phones from B&H Photo last year before we learned of the smartphones inherent flaw -- boot loop. What that means is that the phone will suddenly shut-off and then reboot, over and over, until it overheats, fries its circuits and bricks. We've had it happen to all three of the LG G4 unlocked international phones. Yes, LG will replace but with a lesser quality model and a locked branded phone that's full of bloat ware. My advice is simply to choose some other make of smartphone.

    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.
    Date published: 2017-06-27
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from LG G3 Bricked Itself Within 5 Months Before buying the LG G4, learn about its problems that lead to the phone bricking itself. Google LG G4 problems. It is a deeply flawed smartphone. My wife and I purchased two from B&H and both failed -- my wife's phone had the infamous LG boot-loop and bricked; mine overheated and fried itself. A model US991 that my wife bought failed the same way within five months. Both LG G4 phones that my son bought on B&H failed within four months. I have urged B&H to drop the LG G4 smartphone from its product line. I think it is a blemish to the B&H reputation.
    Date published: 2017-06-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would recommend this product to any one who loves android Very nice UI, This phone has its own features and app which is very handy. When comparing to the price and with other phones, this is a best product I had ever used. Battery last longer than my previous phone, has 2k sharp display, smart wifi sense and also has remote controller in built app from LG which works with my Yamaha receiver, TV, also my BlueRay player. Smooth leather grip with which makes it special as well.Multitasking is my favorite features on this phone. Camera is ver nice, able to take picture in low light as well. Dropped it couple of times (accidently) and it doesn't even have a scratch.

    question

    Will it work with tracphone ?
    Asked by: Rudy S.
    The best answer is that it might work. The first thing to check is if you already have Tracfone service is contacting them to find out if your sim card is CDMA or GSM. If your sim card is CDMA, the LG G5 RS988 is not going to work. If your sim card is GSM it will work with Tracfone service. If you are a new Tracfone customer looking to set up new service you need a GSM sim card.

    question

    Will it work with sprint?
    Asked by: Paul M.
    The definitive answer is .... MAYBE!As the phone is GSM it will not work on a system that has only CDMA available. HOWEVER, as all of the carriers are now supporting LTE, it will work as long as LTE is available. This is why it has a SIM card like a GSM phone. If you are in an area where LTE is not present, the phone won't operate if it is linked to a CDMA system, but it MAY work on roaming on a competitors GSM system if there is an agreement between Sprint and that carrier.As Michael W. said: ask Sprint if they support this particular phone.
