LG G4 Smartphone Launch

Thursday, June 04, 2015

     Last May 28, I was very privilege to attend the launch of the most ambitious smartphone to date- the LG G4. It officially landed on Philippine shores and I'm one of the few who got the first dibs to “See the Great, Feel the Great”. The event was held at The Theatre- Solaire Resort and Casino. Since I've already saw what this smartphone looks like, I was intrigued about the specs and how far it will go against the competition. The phone is very stylish. Chose from hand crafted leather case or Ceramic White with 3D patterns, artisan-forged Metallic Gray and lustrous Shiny Gold. I presume you're already curious about LG G4's key specifications so I will just make this intro short and let's get started!

     Since I'm not a tech blogger, I will just introduce to you what LG G4 has to offer. During the launch, LG Philippines Product Marketing Manager Faith Mijares proudly presented LG G4's astonishing features that's first in smartphone technology.

LG G4 offers these amazing set of unique smartphone features:

One-of-a-kind design 

  • The design of the LG G4 is so unique that's luxurious and environmentally-friendly, 
  • Available in full-grain leather which is hand-crafted at the rear cover. 
  • Other material options are pure Ceramic White with 3D patterns, artisan-forged Metallic Gray and lustrous Shiny Gold. 
  • The comfortable elegance of the LG G4 is a refreshing change from the uniformly flat, full metal designs that have been become standard across the industry. 
  • The LG G4’s design is defined by the Slim Arc, which runs along its entire body, highlighted by a display with a subtle curvature. 
  • More than just a design accent, Slim Arc offers more durability than a flat smartphone in face-down drops and gives the smartphone a more comfortable and secure feel in the hand.

Exceptional visual experience 

  • LG designed the 16-megapixel camera in the LG G4 to capture stunning images even under less than ideal lighting conditions. 
  • The camera module features an industry-first wide F1.8 aperture lens that allows 80 percent more light to reach the sensor. 
  • LG improved low-light performance even further with OIS 2.0, which doubles the performance of the OIS+ by expanding the range of image stabilization from one degree to two degrees on the X- and Y-axis and adding a third axis for the first time.
  • LG G4’s Manual Mode allows experienced photographers to exercise more artistic expression by directly controlling the focus, shutter speed, ISO, exposure compensation and white balance for every shot. 
  • Advanced photographers can also save their photos in RAW format, in addition to JPEG, for more precise editing with no loss of details. 
  • The advanced camera in the LG G4 is complemented by Color Spectrum Sensor (CSS), the first feature of its kind to find its way into a smartphone. CSS improves color accuracy by precisely reading the RGB values of the ambient light in a scene, as well as the infrared light reflected from objects. And for selfies good enough to frame, LG included an industry-leading eight-megapixel front-facing camera for sharp, detailed portraits and group shots.
  • LG G4 is the first smartphone to use LG Display’s new 5.5-inch IPS Quantum Display, which offers 20 percent greater color reproduction, 25 percent improvement in brightness and 50 percent greater contrast. This new display is calibrated for DCI (Digital Cinema Initiatives) standards for color expression, championed by top Hollywood studios. 
  • The G4 is equipped with a high-capacity 3,000mAh removable battery, a rare feature in today’s high-end smartphones.
