When Qualcomm launched its 64bit Snapdragon 810 octa core processor, only a few companies equipped their flagships with it, but they regretted the decision because the users complained against the overheating issue. LG preferred to use the previous Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor for its G4 model and even if the phone is not as powerful as those with the newer processor, at least its temperature is normal and the battery isn’t drained fast. However, later, Qualcomm brought the improved version of the Snapdragon 810, but LG said no to it, opting for the same 808 model. However, LG added more RAM and added some features which make this phone unique.
Designs and Displays
The LG G4 inherited its predecessor’s body form, but its back is no longer made of faux metal, but it’s covered with genuine leather available in seven color options, which has vertical stitches running down the middle. The other variant of the G4 looks cheaper because of its plastic back with 3D diamond pattern. However, the body has a slight curve which tricks you to believe that the screen is also curved likewise on the Flex 2, but we assure you that the screen is flat. Its diagonal measures 5.5-inch and now it uses the new IPS Quantum display technology which increased the brightness by up to 25 percent, while the contrast was increased by up to 56 percent. The resolution is also QHD (1440x2560pixels) and the pixel density hasn’t been modified, as it still supports 538ppi, as for the physical dimensions, the device measures 148.9×76.1×6.3-9.8mm, while the weight is 155grams.
The LG V10 has a larger 5.7-inch IPS LCD screen which supports 1440×2560 pixels at 515ppi, but there is a separate display on top of it, which measures 2.1-inch and supports 160x1040pixels. When the main screen is turned off, it displays notifications and information related to the time/date or the weather, and when the large screen is on, you’ll see the shortcuts for the most used applications. This device is shock resistant, thanks to its stainless steel and silicone design (the back is textured for an easier grip), but this makes the body quite heavy at 192grams, while its dimensions are 159.6×79.3×8.6mm.
As we were telling you in the intro, both devices are powered by a Qualcomm MSM8992 Snapdragon 808 hexa core processor (housing four cores clocked at 1.44GHz and two cores clocked at 1.82GHz) which is backed by Adreno 418 graphics, but while the LG G4 has packed 3GB of RAM and it has an expandable internal memory of 32GB, which can be increased up to 128GB, the V10 has 4GB of RAM and a double internal memory which can be expanded up to the same capacity.
Cameras and Batteries
For the back side of each device was used a 16MP camera with an aperture of f/1.8, dual-tone LED Flash and OIS, but when it comes to front cameras, the G4 offers a 8MP shooter with the f/1.8 aperture, while its sibling sports two 5MP cameras which capture wide angle group selfies.
The battery has the same capacity on both devices, 3000mAhm, and it’s not removable, but LG added wireless charging capabilities only to the G4, however, a quick charge feature is available for both models.
