The LG G4 has just recently started going on sale here in the US and in Europe. However, it’s just gone on sale over in India, before an official announcement was made in that country. Right now the brown leather LG G4 is on sale for Rs. 50,000 which is about $780 USD. Quite expensive, however, that’s normal for flagship devices like these, and is why companies like Meizu and Xiaomi do well with their sub-$200 smartphones.
However, Infibeam – the retailer selling the LG G4 – is also offering an additional Rs. 3,000 off if you use the coupon “STRIKEOFF3000”. Additionally, you can get the metallic finish back cover which is worth Rs. 2,000 and a one-time screen replacement which is worth Rs. 6,500 for free. Over in India, the LG G4 is only sold in leather, and you get the choice of the brown or black leather only. That’s actually a pretty nice deal, to get the metallic back as well, in case you don’t want leather. As well as the one-time screen replacement. Because we’ve all dropped our phones before and cracked the screen, right?
The LG G4 has one of the best cameras on a smartphone right now, if not the best. That is actually the biggest highlight of the smartphone right now. The LG G4 also has a 5.5-inch 2560×1440 resolution display, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor, along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. LG has also opted for a 3000mAh removable battery and a microSD card slot inside. They’ve decided to keep the rear-facing keys for the volume and power buttons. Which they first started with the LG G2 back in 2013. Going back to the camera, LG has the laser-autofocus which was started with the LG G3 in 2014, and they’ve added a color spectrum sensor which works really well, actually. Along with an aperture of f/1.8 which makes for some really great shots in low light.
It’ll be tough for LG to sell a lot of G4’s in India, due to the price, but in other areas of the world, I’d expect it to sell pretty well.
