The LG G4 Beat mobile phone from LG is a high-end phone in the LG range. The mobile phone was released in July 2015 and has been very popular in Europe. Much like the LG Tribute 2 it has a concave shape which is very sleek and appears in many of the new designs from LG. Like all high-end phones this one comes with EDGE and GPRS as standard.
The phone looks good and is light weighing only 139g. The size is also good at IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 16M colors and comes with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels and is multitouch. Note that this is twice the resolution of the LG Tribute 2. The phone runs on the Android OS, v5.1.1 (Lollipop) operating system. The phone is also power by a more powerful Qualcomm MSM 8939 Snapdragon 615 as well as a Quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 & quad-core 1 GHz Cortex-A53. The GPU is also more powerful being the Adreno 405.
The phone has large storage space and enough memory for more than basic video. This comes in at 8 GB with 1.5 GB of RAM. Note that the camera is very good however its is going to depend on where you buy the mobile phone. The South American version of the phone has a much more powerful camera being a 13 MP camera with 4128 x 3096 pixels resolution with auto-focus and an LED flash (Latin America). The standard for the phone however is a 8 MP camera with a 3264 x 2448 pixel resolution with laser auto-focus and an LED flash. The camera comes with the usual bells and whistles that you would find on a high-end phone. These include the geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, HDR and panorama ability. The video runs at an impressive 1080p@30fps with 5 MP secondary camera.
The connectivity comes with Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n as well as hotspot. Bluetooth v4.1, A2DP as well as A-GPS and GLONASS so it is aimed at the Eastern European market as well. There is also USB microUSB v2.0 as well as near field communication. It also has good talk time with its Li-Ion 2300 mAh battery.
Overall not a bad phone however LG has been making too many rehashes of the same phone style with slightly different specs. In the long run I think they are doing the brand damage by doing this.
