The last few years has really seen LG progress in the mobile phone sector and starting to compete with the big boys such as Apple, Samsung and HTC. It seems the LG G4 is again another step in the right direction, with many saying it is close to perfection, but just falling short, due to a few minor shortcomings.
By far the best feature has to be the 5.5 inch screen, which has stunning picture quality, however, the size does make it hard to use one handed. Another eye catching feature is the option to have leather back which comes in numerous different colours.
Although, the LG G4 ticks many boxes and has generally impressed the experts, it does have its flaws, this includes average battery life (however, it is removable), the price is right up there with all the other top models, such as the iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy S6, and finally, compared to the 'premium' model with the leather back, the polycarbonate version does not really make the same impact and lacks finesse.
