Ring­ing in the changes

There’s a smart­phone to suit any bud­get, writes Jen­nifer Dud­ley-Ni­chol­son

LG’S flag­ship phone, out next week, stands out like a leather-bound tome in a li­brary of pa­per­backs. That is thanks to its lux­u­ri­ous leather back panel, and sub­tly curved screen. Mer­ci­fully, the G4 has the smarts to back up its tall-poppy ap­pear­ance. Its 16-megapixel cam­era fea­tures a wide, f1.8 aper­ture and larger im­age sen­sor aided by in­fra-red fo­cal guid­ance. There’s an 8-megapixel selfie cam­era up­front, a size­able 3000mAh bat­tery, and LED en­hance­ments that make its 5.5-inch dis­play look brighter. It omits a fin­ger­print scan­ner and doesn’t match the speed of its ri­vals, but the LG G4 is an able and at­trac­tive sharp­shoot­ing con­tender.
