LG G4 at Best Buy ~ Experiencing the Cutting Edge of Technology

by Heather

The hubby thinks my nickname should be Bane. Not because I look anything like the evil villain from Batman, but because I am the bane of all things electronic. Phones, computers, TVs, you name it, it hates me. Works great for the hubby, not for me.

Why do I bring this up you ask? Because I am once again on the hunt for a new cell phone. I won’t name names on what brand I currently own, but let’s just say it is going fast. The battery doesn’t last, it takes terrible pictures, and overall it’s just (to coin a phrase the hubby likes to use) “meh.”

So rather than wander over to my local “I’m going to rip you off celluar provider’s” local store I decided to wander into Best Buy to see what they have and saw the new LG G4 Smartphone. It doesn’t hurt that they are currently offering a $100 Best Buy® Gift Card when you purchase the LG G4! 😉

11352224_1001808836504170_1734471402_nAMmmm, momma likey.

Where to start? For one thing, it has a replaceable battery. That’s huge to me. I don’t know if anyone else has noticed the trend to make the battery permanent in newer smartphones (or forever if you’re Apple), but I don’t like that. Guess what? Batteries don’t last. I want to be able to get a new one and switch it out. You know what else is replaceable? The memory card. Along with 32GB of internal storage it comes with a micro SD slot so I can expand the phone storage as much as I want. Again, this is something I like compared to the recent trend of not having these features. It is also designed to fit comfortably in my hand. Unlike the rectangular brick I currently own, it actually has a nice ergonomic feel with a gently curved design.

What else you say? Let’s talk camera. I need to be able to take quick good idiot proof pictures. I’m not going to get into all the technical stuff, mostly because I’m not a camera geek and I don’t understand it, but the end result is a camera that focuses super fast due to its improved laser auto focus thingy and takes great pictures in low light because of some aperture doohickey. And when I’m on a coffee bender and super jittery, optical image stabilization to my rescue! On the other hand, if you are a perfectionist like the hubby and want complete control over all aspects of the picture taking process the camera also has a manual mode with a plethora of settings to control your shots (and yes El Guapo, I know what a plethora is).

And last but not least, the screen, with a large 5.5 inch IPS Quantum Display. Now I don’t know what an IPS Quantum Display is, but it sure sounds cool. And it looks even cooler than it sounds. It has a nice bright display that I can view under all kinds of lighting with incredible contrast.

Now, I just need to get an armored case before the hubby will let me touch it.

Sounds like a good phone. I like the LG phones I’ve had in the past. My biggest feature I look for in a phone is battery life. I hate having a battery that runs down in a few hours and constantly use battery boosting apps. I also have a problems getting pictures clear and not blurry. I have a medical condition that causes my hands to shake. I did not know any phones had image stabilization. I have never considered buying a phone at Best But but I’ll have to check it out in a few months when I’m getting a new phone. Thanks for the review.

I’m seriously looking into this. Just lately, the phone I have now has begun making crackling noises, and getting hot. I don’t want it to explode in my hand!! And I LOVE that the LG G4 has a replaceable battery and an SD expansion option – my phone has neither. Going to be off to Best Buy this week on a scouting trip. Thanks for the review!!

Nice, very nice. This would be a step up from what my husband uses. He only has his for emergencies though.
