LG G4 - Sprint
Though Samsung’s dominated the Android space for several years, other companies have been forced to innovate. In many cases, like the LG G4, they’ve offered phones that are as good as the Galaxies and Notes, and in some cases, offer features that have gone MIA in those phones.The first thing that catches the attention of any user is a device’s display. In the case of the G4, the 5.5 inch IPS screen consistently wows reviewers and users. Made by LG, the display is praised as being vibrant and lifelike, with images and text coming in at a crisp 531 dots per inch.
LG has improved its camera sensor to 16 megapixels, with the laser autofocus system it used in its last flagship phone, the G3. The selfie/video conferencing camera shoots at 8 megapixels, which is as good as many mid-range smartphones. A fast Qualcomm 808 processor with 3GB of RAM keeps up with the best of the premium offerings out there, with reports from reviewers and critics uniformly positive with its performance. There’s also an NFC chip for mobile payments and near field payments.
The G4 comes with a base 32GB of internal data storage, but it also includes a microSD slot for expanding storage up to another 2TB and allows for a swappable battery. The lack of a microSD slot in Samsung’s newer devices has been a sore spot among Samsung users, so those who miss it may want to take a close look at the G4.The G4 may not be as weatherproof as unibody designs, but it's a very compelling device for those looking for something other than a Samsung or Apple device.
