The LG G4 Arrives On Fido For $250 On A 2-Year Contract

Fido is always late to the party and the terrific LG G4 has been available since the middle of June in Canada and Fido is just now getting the device – but certainly a good thing for Fido customers looking for a high-end smartphone, although the pricing is still a bit on the expensive side.  It will cost you $250 on a two-year Tab24 agreement on a Smart Plan, $515 with a two-year Tab24 agreement on a Standard Plan or simply $700 outright and it does comes with the optional black leather cover.

LG took the innovative LG G3 smartphone and made many improvements in the LG G4 to make it a standout flagship.  The new technology with the Quantum IPS Quad HD display creates a 25-percent brighter display with a 50-percent increase in the contrast and 56-percent improvement to the color accuracy over the LG G3.  The display went to 5.5-inches, but LG curved the entire device ever so slightly – not like their LG G Flex 2 – to make it fit more comfortably in your hand. It has a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels and 538 pixels-per-inch (PPI).

LG also took a chance in the processor department where they passed on the Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor that they used in their G Flex 2 for the 64-bit Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor with a quad-core clocked at 1.44GHz and a dual-core clocked at 1.82GHz.  It packs 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory with a microSD card slot for additional external expansion.  A removable 3,000 mAh battery with quick charge and an optional wireless charging as well supplies power.  The LG G4 comes with one of the top-rated cameras – a 16MP sensor, laser autofocus, dual-tone LED flash, a wide f/1.8 aperture and OIS and also includes a huge 8MP front-facing camera (FFC) that shares the f/1.8 aperture for great lowlight selfies or video chats.

The LG G4 also includes an FM Stereo radio, a built-in IR Blaster, unique controls on the back of the device – on/off and volume and some great software, not only to control the smartphone, but also in the camera area…especially for those that like total control over their camera.
