LG G4 vs LG G3

LG's latest flagship smartphone, the G4, has impressed us all here at Chitter Chatter. If you're considering upgrading to one (and we can't blame you), we thought you'd find it useful to see how it measures up against it's predecessor, the G3.

The design and size of the LG G4 are pretty similar tothe LG G3. There are of course a few subtle differences such as the gently curved screen on the G4 and more rounded curved edges on the G3. The G4 has been designed with bigger bezels at both the top and bottom of the screen so it's handset is slightly larger. The rear cover of the G4 is where the big difference lies in comparison to the LG G3. LG have opted for a selection of real leather back covers with a central line of stitching in a lovely range of colours. If leather isn't your thing then there's also the option to have a plastic rear cover.

The size of the screen on the LG G4 hasn't changed from the G3 - both come with a 5.5-inch QHD display with a screen resolution of 1440 x 2560 which gives an excellent density of 538 pixels per inch. However the G4 screen has been improved so it's brighter, sharper and more colourful thanks to quantum dot technology, an upgrade of around 25% and the contrast ratio has also been upped by about 50%.

The cameras have also been upgraded on the G4. The G3 featured a 13-megapixel rear facing camera, the LG G4 comes with a 16-megapixel camera on the rear with a F1.8 wide-angle lens and a new Colour Spectrum Sensor to enhance the colour of your images. On the front of the LG G4 is a very decent 8-megapixel camera which replaces the 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera on the G3.

The inside of the G4 has also had a make-over. It's powered by a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor as opposed to the 801 quad-core processor found in the LG G3. The G4 also boasts 3GB of RAM and an impressive 32GB of onboard memory expandable up to 128G with a microSD card. The battery life of the G4 should be around 20% up on the G3 thanks to the faster and more efficient processor. Running on Android Lollipop 5.1, the G4 also has a new user interface called UX 4.0 which come with some exciting new features for the camera and photo gallery and can be customised more for its users.
