LEATHERETTE

NEW YORK (April 28th, 2015) —
LG has launched the much anticipated G4! Whoohoo! I have to say that it is an interesting offering from LG. I loved last year’s G3 and the successor has me curious on many levels...

How would the leather feel? Will the F1.8 camera make such a great difference and especially in comparison to the Galaxy S6 / S6 Edge camera? Performance? Battery? Yes, there is plenty for me to test!
