The LG K4 offers users an affordable device with decent specs that also presents a step forward in security with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor included in the price.

LG has released the phone with Marshmallow and it would be surprising to see an update to this, but nothing is for certain.

If you want to check out the LG K4 it’s on the Telstra website now.

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.

Rubbish. Its not even 720p. And a 1GB of RAM in 2017 is shocking. A Chinadroid at that price would murder it spec wise.
