Review: LG G4 for Verizon Wireless
The LG G4 is a capable flagship smartphone on the Android platform. It's a bit like a wolf in sheep's clothing. It wears the plastic garb of lesser phones, but packs the killer instincts required to bite back at the competition.
LG didn't stray far from a design it knows works, though I'm still not sold on the button placement. The G4 is too much like its predecessors, save for the optional-but-really-required leather cover. The leather gives flesh to the wolf hiding within. The screen is to die for; it's simply one of the best. On Verizon's network, the G4 provided excellent signal, voice, and battery performance.
The Snapdragon 808 lights a fire under the Android 5.1 platform and user interface from LG. The phone is fast through all the corners. LG's enhancements to Android are tasteful and not terribly overbearing. The QSlide apps offer a certain amount of utility and KnockOn and KnockCode are useful additions to the lock screen.

The G4's strongest selling point is the camera. The software is designed for plebes and experts alike. More importantly, the sensor delivers the goods with fantastic results.
Would I recommend the LG G4? Yes. If you want the best screen and camera combination on the market, the G4 is the most compelling option. Just be sure to upgrade to the leather package.
