If you read my post last May, I had serious touch screen issues with the phone, it was a common thing apparently. The problem is still there and LG decided not to release an update to fix the issue as of yet. It did however become a lot less agonising after Snapchat updated their app so that you don’t need to keep a finger on the screen to watch a video, the phone still randomly likes images on instagram when I browse.
I’ve noticed that once again, LG has for some reason decided to remove even more features on the LG G4. They removed a lot of features jumping from LG G2 to LG G3 and now they’re doing it again. They removed the feature that keeps the screen on when it notices you’re staring at it, it was a handy feature I used a lot on the LG G3.
The camera is the only reason I see someone buying this phone, you could literally with the right camera settings take a full lit photo in a room that’s completely dark. I realised I rarely use the camera features because most the apps I use already have their own camera software built inside the app. I can’t even use the camera features on apps like Snapchat. I guess when I move to another phone I can keep this phone for traveling, that way I get a phone and a great camera without having the bulky Canon.
The genuine leather finishing which was supposed to represent luxury and class is already peeling off within a mere 2 months of usage (from all 4 corners of the phone). It’s also worth noting I haven’t dropped the phone once. The good thing is the one I bought also came with a plastic cover, so I can decide to replace the leather cover for free with a plastic one whenever I want.
Overall the phone’s very similar to the LG G3 which made me feel a full review of this device is unnecessary. My next phone is definitely going to be a 5.2 inch or less screen, 5.5 inch screens are just too large for my hands. I unfortunately won’t be buying another LG, they’ve lost me on this phone. The LG G2 was a game changer and innovator, 2 generations later the LG G4 is just a specs improvement with some serious touch issues.
