The LG G4 is one of 2015’s flagship devices released earlier in the year and it directly competes with the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, HTC One M9 and more recently, the Motorola Moto X Style and OnePlus Two devices. For the LG G4, LG gave the device a slightly different specification and focus compared with its competitor flagship peers: the G4 is based around a System-on-Chip that is one notch down from the flagship chipset, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 rather than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810. The Snapdragon 808 has six processor cores rather than the 810’s eight and a slightly lower maximum clock speed. In other respects, the G4 has comparable hardware: it has a 5.5-inch, 1440p or QHD display, 3 GB or RAM, 32 GB of internal storage plus a MicroSD card, and a very good quality (arguably the finest smartphone camera available in the market today) 16MP rear camera complete with a laser autofocus mechanism. The G4 also includes a 3,000 mAh battery, high speed 4G LTE networking and Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box.
The G4 is available from most carriers around the world. If you are in the United States of America and you are thinking of picking one up to take advantage of the fantastic camera, and especially if Verizon Wireless is your carrier, it just so happens that Verizon and LG have just announced a special deal for LG G4 customers. Buy the G4 from the 1 to the 12 August and you’ll be eligible for a $100 pre-paid VISA card. You’ll need to visit the source website if you buy the G4, but you do have until the end of the month to submit the registration – customers need to be eighteen, but the offer is available for the Ceramic White, Metallic Grey and Genuine Leather Black variants of the LG G4.
If you are tempted by the deal, the G4 is $199.99 at Verizon on a two year plan. Using the Monthly Device Payment, customers can pay $0 up front and $22.91 a month over the two years, whereas buying the device outright will set you back $549.99. That $100 pre-paid VISA card will, of course, sweeten the deal.
