G4 - M9 - S6
In the early hours of this morning, LG finally unveiled the G4. The phone is now in the hands of the illustrious Chris, who has from all accounts fallen deeply in love with the luxurious leather rear of the phone, as well as the camera. The phone is obviously about to enter the marketplace – when exactly isn’t yet known – where it will compete with other 2015 flagships from HTC and Samsung. So, it comes down to Specs, at least to start with, at least until we’ve finished reviews on all the handsets. So, to make it easy for you, we’ve laid out the specs on all three(four with the Edge) for you to compare in this easy to read chart.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Not sure if this is spam or supposed to be a genuine comment?

If it’s genuine, then I suggest you think before you speak, especially if you are representing a company – especially your own.

Sadly, pricing for the G4 won’t be known until LG’s ready to announce it for local launch.

Does G4 support quick charging?

Question: why do you say that G4 only has a single LED flash on the rear?

Looking at the photos, it looks to have a similar 2 LED dual colour flash like the G3.

Because it does. The thing under the LED flash is a “colour spectrum sensor” for a more accurate white balance and colour reproduction.
