Welcome to the family: everything you need to know about LG’s G4 range

To make one award-winning, must-have smartphone in a year is feat few manufacturers can pull off. To release a whole range of equally appealing handsets – well that’s something special indeed.

Welcome to the LG G4 family.

The LG G4 certainly has it all. From the timeless, handtooled leather back to a camera that performs above the rest, it’s easy to become enamoured by this flagship phone. But now there’s even more to the G4 family than its award-winning, top-of-the-line model.

LG has recently launched two fantastic mid-range devices that offer more bang for your budget and are ideal for a style (and price) conscious mobile consumer.

Expect the same sleek curves, incredible UI and rear back button of the original, with a few subtle changes.

LG G4 Stylus: the best battery life

Bigger than the G4 at 5.7 inches, the LG G4 Stylus is a longer, but also a thinner, smartphone. If anything, it’s a business phablet – big, but definitely not bulky.

What makes this G4 model unique, as you’ve probably already guessed, is the stylus which fits perfectly at the top of the phone. It’s a great addition if you prefer to keep your smartphone screen fingerprint-free.

Consider yourself a mobile photographer? The G4 Stylus has an impressive 8MP rear camera equipped with an auto focus function. And the front-facing camera will see you snapping selfies at a sharp 5MP.

On the inside, the G4 Stylus has Snapdragon S410 processor and 3,000 mAh cells. Its (removable) battery is the same as the G4, which means it will be good for close to 20 hours of continuous 3G talk time on a single charge.

Your workday? Sorted.

LG G4 Beat: a priceless camera in your pocket

At only 5.2 inches, the LG G4 Beat is smaller than both the G4 and the G4 Stylus. It’s also less to handle, weighing 18% less than the G4 Stylus.

The pro camera is one of the most talked about features of the G4 and with the G4 Beat; you’ll be walking around with a top smartphone camera.

The specs (1920×1080 screen resolution and 423 ppi compared to 2560×1440 and 538ppi) mean it’s just as sharp as LG’s flagship but when it comes down to it, Quad versus Full HD is not really notable to the naked eye.

Looking inside, the G4 Beat is equipped with a speedy Snapdragon octacore S615 processor. It’s slightly better than what LG Stylus offers, but also less powerful than the G4’s hexacore 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 808.

That said, it still totes the G4’s top photographic features – think colour spectrum sensor, mobile mode, gesture interval shot, etc. LG has packed it all into this mid-range smartphone.

Affordable but chic: which smartphone suits you?
Looking for a business phone with simple (but effective) multitasking and a full-day battery life? Pick the G4 Stylus. For a mid-range phone that still offers DSLR controls and a host of other fun photographic features, the G4 Beat is the one to pick.
