We've seen the LG G4 announcement, we've reviewed it, and we know all five of the major carriers will sell the device. Now it's just a matter of finding out when.
Today Sprint has announced that it will start selling LG's latest flagship on June 5th, and you can pre-order one right away in leather black or plastic gray. If you buy one between now and June 21st, you get an extra battery, charging cradle, and 32GB microSD card in the mail for free. Read More
You may have heard that the LG G4 doesn't have support for Qualcomm's Quick Charge 2.0 technology, which seems odd considering it has a Snapdragon 808. That's what LG said at the launch event, but it's looking now like that was just a formality. The G4 has just appeared on Qualcomm's officially supported QC2.0 device list.
Leading up to today's announcement, we saw leaks, teasers, more teasers, one leak to rule them all, and even more teasers. If there was anything you wanted to know about this phone, you already do. Only now, in big press event fashion, LG has made it official.

LG's flagship smartphones have quickly increased in quality over the years, and the G4 marks yet another clear evolution for the other large Korean electronics firm.
We have a review unit (with gray plastic cover - these photos are of other devices) in hand now, and I can say that the G4 is categorically an improvement over the G3 in some clear ways, but others we'll just have to wait and see on.
The first thing that struck me about the G4 (aside from the leather-backed variants) was the brightness and vividness of the display. It's clear this new "quantum" IPS panel is a very significant upgrade over the 2K IPS in the G3 in terms of brightness and contrast. Read More
