LG Butterfly H815 G4 Smartphone 32GB
LG is on something of a comeback trail - the brand that killed it in the feature phone market, then fell apart when smartphone became 'a thing', is now starting to show signs it can be a front runner again.
The LG G4 is the result of years of forward momentum, combining the insane sort of specs we're used to seeing from the Asian manufacturers with a recognized brand and decent attempt to create a usable user experience.
The LG G4 does a few things differently though. This time the brand has aimed for elements the user will actually want: longer battery life, improved camera and upgraded screen, and combined them with a slightly outlandish design: covering the thing in a leather coat that's certainly something the rest of the market hasn't seen yet.
One of the early sticking points I had with this phone was the price - it came at a 'normal' level, rivalling the iPhone and Galaxy flagships pound for pound. That's now dropped massively to make it, once again, one of the cheapest and most attractive top-end handsets in price terms.
It's attractive enough, and has the same brushed metal effect as last year, but lacks anything like the 'wow' factor LG is going for with the leather option.
Let's start with leather (on a separate note: a dangerous statement for a first date). I'm really disappointed with what LG has done here. It's too thinly stretched over the back of the phone to be considered premium, and when you're fighting against the beauty of the HTC One M9, it's a real misstep.
There are now two leather variants on the market, brown and black. The former looks more striking, but the latter feels a little more rugged, with a nicer experience in the hand. The leather doesn't feel as thin and stretched, for a start.
Turn every moment into a work of art by adjusting camera settings that tweak lightness and darkness,
freeze movement faster, and allow for better low-lightshooting.
With the G4's manual mode, you can set your camera to easily and artfully capture the blazing lights.
The IPS Quantum Display produces high-contrast, vibrant images that are rich and authentic in colour and amazingly true-to-life.
It also benefits from In-cell Touch Display technology, which provides a smooth and super-responsive feel at the same time as making the screen easily visible in daylight.
