LG G4 will Compete Strongly Against Apple’s iPhone 6 and Samsung’s Galaxy S6


LG is making a comeback with their G Series Smartphones and this will bring back the excitement that the Cookie did just 6 years ago.

New LG g4 flows like water  The best thing about smartphones manufactured by Asians is that they can load the phone with an insane amount of good stuff (that’s comparable to or even greater than US and EU-made phones) and still sell them at one third the price that Apple iPhones are being sold. But this time the Korea-based phone manufacturer dared to raise eyebrows when it plans to sell the G4 at around $800 – $1,000 which is surprisingly more expensive than the iPhone 6 and HTC One M9! However, they’ll give you a lot of the good stuff for the amount you’ll be paying, like upgraded screen and a more advanced camera, longer battery life, RAM, core processor speed and the new leather coating which is not available in any other phones.

The Design

Honestly, the leather back overlay for the LG G4 is kind of a step backwards, because you may get that nagging feeling that you’re purchasing a Louis Vuitton bag or boots instead of a smartphone; which is awkward – and that’s an understatement. Just wait ‘till it’s your turn to go shopping for this thing!

The huge 5.5-inch Quad HD display absolutely kills it! From the moment I touched the second-series prototype LG G4, I never wanted to put it down again and I even had this silent enthusiasm to ask the attendant if I could take it home with me, which was inappropriate and rude to a certain extent. Still, with all the emotions aside, there’s nothing NOT to like about the G4. It is as a premium brand quality as any other phone in the market!

LG G4 Leaked promotionThe plastic, ceramic and metallic versions of the G4 is not so terrible, in fact, they are comparable to the other top mobile phone manufacturers. However, I have to say that HTC, Samsung and Apple does it slightly better. Keep up the good work LG, you’re almost there!

I think that the main goal of LG is ergonomics as that’s what I’ve concluded when handling the G4 smartphone. It feels easy and light to the touch compared to other smartphones out there. The battery is also better in two significant ways: 1) it packs more power than other phones at 3000mAh and, 2) it’s removable.

I actually prefer the removable battery design over the unibody chassis that other phone manufacturers have added to their latest design features. The point is Lithium-Ion batteries can only last so long and after using it for 8 months on, their power factor is reduced by 18% or more, depending on how often you use your phone. Replacing the old battery with a new one is one way to go, of course, you can also use two or more batteries in reserve to lessen the charging time.

Massive phones have become the trend nowadays and if you don’t have one of those in your pocket or shoulder bag, then you’re certainly the sorest person to ever walk this Earth. But the bulky and wide horizontal surface makes them unwieldy, so the designers came up with an ingenious idea – make the edges curved to compensate for ergonomics! And it worked. Even the designers at LG realized this fact and included it in the G4.

The G4 has neatly tucked away all of the inconvenient pesky keys on the back of the phone just below the 16 megapixels camera; while most phone manufacturers have these in the front and sides of their phones.

LG G4 leakThe Display

Okay, our contenders for the maximum resolution on their respective phones’ display starts with Apple iPhone 6 (750 x 1334 @ 326 ppi) which is the lowest among the 6th gen smartphones on the market. Next we have HTC One M9 (1080 x 1920 @ 441 ppi), then comes the other Korean-made Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge (1440 x 2560 @ 557 ppi) which is more or less similar to the LG G4’s resolution [2560 x 1440 (Quad HD) @538 ppi].

The new Quantum IPS display on the LG G4 is probably the best I’ve ever seen to date, and I think it competes more with its homegrown rival, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge than Apple or other brands. I find the 5.5-inch display a bit difficult to navigate (makes you wish you had a stylus pen actually), but again, the screen will take your attention away from other inconveniences.

Deeper reds and brighter blues, that’s what’s mostly the QUAD HD does which means it has cinema quality images and videos. It should feel like blu-ray on a smartphone, yeah, that’s just how amazing this phone is. Apple had better watch its back, because Samsung will not be the only rival in the block soon, HTC, Lenovo and especially LG will want a huge chunk of the smartphone market!

LG G4 Poster soon releasedThe LG G4 also sport a new unlocking feature called, the “Knock Code.” It works differently with the security PIN and the swipe code that you may have already seen in other smartphones. The Knock Code works by tapping a couple of times on particular areas of the LG G4’s screen to wake it up from sleep. It is a more efficient way to unlock the phone and it’s much ‘cooler’ in my opinion.


•    Superb camera
•    Elegant leather back
•    Color-rich display


•    Camera launcher could be better
•    No QuickCharge technology
•    Jury is out on leather durability

Initial Verdict

Whatever the decision-making block did in LG for its latest G4 smartphone concept, they did it so well, because they focused on 3 things: a) great camera for photos, a colour rich display and excellent design features. It’s so much better than Apple’s iPhone 6 and HTC One M9 that it is, by far, the only one I could find worthy to compete with the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. I’m definitely getting the LG G4 when it opens up for sale next month and you should too!

What started as an idea of paying tribute to everything that was great about 80s action films; buddy cops, cheesy dialogue, ninjas, dinosaurs and of course over the top action, Kung Fury swiftly picked up traction online and a Kickstarter campaign was underway. Adam Sandberg, the man behind Kung Fury, set out to make a short film which involves everything he loves about the 1980s.

Kung Fury Movie PosterHe had always wanted to make a film about dinosaurs, robots and cops, and felt the 80s were a perfect decade to combine them all. Prior to Kung Fury, Sandberg worked as a commercial director, where he shot music videos and television commercials. Upon quitting his job, he focussed on writing and directing a comedy action film that pays tribute to the 1980s. In December 2013, Sandberg decided it was time to start a Kickstarter campaign, hoping he would reach the goal of $200,000 in order to make the short film.

The Last Ship - Logo


I just came across this amazing TV series adapted from William Brinkley’s best-selling novel, The Last Ship. The season premiere actually aired back in 2014 and I was quite disappointed having only watched it in reruns, but it was rewarding nonetheless and it got enough fan support and audience share for the studio to make a second season.

Since Tile is using Bluetooth 4.0 it only works with the latest generation of iOS devices such as the iPhone 5, iPad mini, iPad 3, iPad 4 and iPad touch 5; and what’s more amazing about Tile Tracker is that you don’t have to worry about recharging it, because according to the developer will continue to function for up to one year from its activation date. The range of the Tile Tracker is approximately 100 – 150 feet radius which is huge considering the size of this device, it’s almost unbelievable, but we’re in 2015 now, so try to get over it. If in case your personal belongings got out of range, a crowdsourced solution website called Reveal Labs will help you find you lost items via homing in on the Tile Tracker device that’s unique to your iOS device.

It works with the assumption that there are a few Tile Tracker users that are moving in a given space and each one will transmit and receive signals to and from your unique Tracker. Once your Tracker has been identified, it will notify you exactly where your lost item is with reference to the nearest Tile Tracker user. It’s almost like a high-tech eco-location of some kind.
