LG G4 Official Philippine Launch

 

Already announced, with its pre-orders nearly ending, and with our first impressions already posted, the LG G4 has just been officially launched in the Philippines.

Here’s a quick run down of what makes the LG G4 alluring

Luxurious, hand-crafted genuine rear cover leather

No faux leather or ugly stitching. This is the real deal. Already a sight to behold, the LG G4 leather cover variant is also a pleasure to touch. The leather back plus the slight curvature adds to ergonomic comfort and grip. Even ladies with small hands can hold the G4, knowing it will neither slide nor fly off their hands. Even the G4’s plastic back variants are 3D-printed with a pattern that’s nice to touch.

Slim arc, curved display

Flat body, full metal designs are the new boring standard. The slightly curved body and display of the LG G4 are a treat for both the hand and eyes. A phone that curves into your hand is naturally more comfortable than a flat one. Add to this the luxurious feel of leather and a display with a subtle curvature that feels a bit more intimate to watch movies on.

Stunning looks come with a stunning camera

The LG G4 boasts of three mind-boggling features of its rear camera: an F1.8 aperture lens (allowing 80% more light to reach the sensor), an improved Optical Image Stabilization (for better low light images), and a Color Spectrum Sensor (CSS, that improves color accuracy by correctly reading ambient light and being aware of objects).

Sharper details, accurate non-oversaturated colors, and better low light images are possible because the camera sensor gets more light, the camera is more stable in your hand, and the quality of surrounding light is better assessed. An 8 MP front camera takes care of all your selfie and groufie needs.

Advanced shooters will adore manual mode, which gives users DSLR-like control over every shot – that means precision adjustment of focus, shutter speed, ISO, exposure compensation, and white balance. Images can also be saved in either JPEG or RAW format for later tweaking on one’s computer.

Highly improved display performance

The G4 is the first smartphone to use LG Display’s new 5.5-inch IPS Quantum Display, which gives 20% greater color reproduction, 25% better brightness, and 50% greater contrast. This new display is calibrated for Digital Cinema Initiatives standards for color expression, a metric championed by Hollywood studios.

Replaceable battery and expandable storage

Strange that some flagships don’t ship with removable battery and storage expansion. The G4’s removable 3,000 mAh battery is enough to power the G4 through out the day. While the LG G4 can take in up to a 128GB micro SD card, it can also handle up to a 2TB micro SD card (even if that has not yet been invented yet; talk about being future-proof).

Pricing and Availability
