▼ Updates ▼
1) When using Periscope battery life suffers bad, lost 30% in 33 minutes of broadcasting on 4G LTE. Phone also gets VERY hot like described in the video.
2) Took screen out in insanely bright conditions today and it was hard to see compared to the iPhone. It’s much better on overcast days but it was a scorcher out today!
3) Had a few times running Periscope where the screen was unresponsive to touch, had to keep trying 8 – 10 times to get it to recognize I was pushing a button even though the screen responded to scrolling input?!?

    you know they all look the same like the Nexus 5 the LG G4 and the one plus one I bet they all copied each other

  3. Andrew McCutcheon says:

  4. Zepher143 says:

    What the hell was the sound that sounded like a Samsung Phone when you open it.

  5. razor slaughter says:

    i love the G4 it's the best phone I've had

  6. Watermana GamingHD says:

  7. Jason Alexander says:

    that phone has a hex core… my pc is a dual core i3….

  8. Lisa Allen says:

  11. Vickie Aragon says:

  14. Choda Boy says:

    FYI, Palm (and now Samsung) have had IR blasters in their devices for many years…but, welcome to the club.

  15. The Chicken Man says:

    More phone unboxings and reviews pls

  16. andy ? says:

    betterbatterystats will show you the wakelocks to see whats running to save your battery.

    if its running hot changing the kernel will probably fix that (easy as installing a zip through recovery mode if its rooted etc)

  17. VeggiePopper says:

    Funny that you mention the phone getting hot, as it is the coolest phone released in 2015, thanks to its hexa-core SoC. All other flagships (octa-core) are true ovens.

    Anyways, another good review, and an accurate one to boot. As a happy and satisfied G4 user, I can say this is a hell of a winner. You didn't tell us if you preferred it over the One Plus, but I hope you did.

    strange, my g4;s battery lasts almost 2 days, with heavy use.
