    Very thorough review. Sounds like this may be the phone for me. It will definitely be my wife's next phone, as she demands swappable batteries.

    Great review. Seems like they really liked it.

    Looks to have the best screen and best camera on a phone, fast performance and solid battery life.

    The phone for me. Can't wait for its release.

    In the podcast they unanimously agree this is the best flagship of 2015 so far. That's high praise. Move over S6.

    At this stage, from everything we've heard so far, and now this review, I'm very confident that this device is going to be a winner.

    I just read The Verge's review and my god it feels so pedestrian. Whoever wrote it clearly can't be bothered. No enthusiasm about anything. The screen was rated as the best on any smartphone but got a 9 (for not being Apple I suspect). The software was hardly reviewed but got a 6/10 - unsure what criticisms they had. Overall, the writer clearly couldn't be bothered.

    ^^^Also, the comparison of numbers of manufactured units between Apple and LG seemed irrelevant. Apple is making all the phones for its entire iOS, whereas LG is just one manufacturer among many producing phones for the Android OS.

    Compared to this moto X the quirk is that it doesn't die at lunch!

    I'll watch the podcast later today, but that's great to hear.

    Best part is, in the review for the G4 regarding the screen The Verge said "It’s as good, if not better, than the Galaxy S6’s screen" yet they give the G4 screen a 9 and gave the S6 screen a 10? How on earth does that make sense?

    Really sloppy review by the Verge.

    Try Gizmodo's review. It reads like a fourteen-year-old wrote it.

    When I read that the Verge's review wasn't very favorable, I thought for sure that Vlad was going to be the author. I'm a bit surprised that it was Dan Seifert. It was so weird to read. A lot of the time he seemed pretty excited about some of its features. But in the end was like "meh, Apple and Samsung are better and only Android nerds will like this phone".

    Also I had to lol when he said that the M9 and S6 were both blisteringly fast while the G4 wasn't quite there. I can believe that for the M9, but definitely not the S6. My wife had the S6 edge and it's no where near as quick as a HTC phone or my Z3. In fact I'm seeing the same old Samsung/Touchwiz stuttering.

    Appears to be the greatest phone ever. When's the pre-order start at Verizon?

    Yep. Odd comment. The G4 is getting praise for being smooth and quick, "LG's war on lag." It felt like a combination of can't be bothered, broad strokes/generalisations, no enthusiasm and ultimately rushed to meet a deadline. I've read Amazon reviews that were more professional

    Pretty much what I expected from the Good and the Bad.

    Ask a few carriers up here about the Leather backs and shocking majority have no idea what I'm talking about.

    Plastic backs for the G3 go for $20. Can't imagine what they'll charge for the leather one. Looks worth whatever it is though lol

    I've read at least 10 reviews in the past two days -- almost all of them favorable -- though most belittle the G4 for not having wireless or QC. However, none of them bothered (well, Phonearena did but their testing was skewed) how long the G4's 1.8A charger takes to go from 0% to 100%, or 50-60% to 100%. I don't expect it to be the 87 minutes the S6 takes, but if it's 30 minutes longer, hey, that's not so bad either. It doesn't have to be an official QC to be pretty darn good.

    Hopefully, one of the AC editors with a G4 can chime in on this...

    I have found that most of the Samsung fanboy sites are very quick to downplay any other oem to boost their reviews.

    While the LG g4 is on pre-production software it's camera is more capable than the other brands including the s6 and edge. Of course they are waiting on a update to over shadow the g4, but I wonder if LG will also push out something better too... I don't think that they are going to let Samsung or anyone else steal their thunder after investing heavily on it...

    As to folks wanting definitive answers to the battery life, I look at it like this... Everyone sets up and uses their phones different and it's really easy to get hung up on someone else's numbers and what they get out of a days charge.. I don't put a lot of stock into those reviews or results. I have seen plenty of folks who have the s6 getting excellent battery life so anything is possible...

    Quick charging isn't something that I have to have, same for wireless charging, those are extras that are nice to have but I would rather see something like what HTC has implemented with the battery saver on it.. With that I go 2 days with normal usage at times.

    This phone is going to be the one every other oem has to beat.. and they will use their mouthpieces... err reviewers to find every little thing that isn't too their liking and try to make a issue of it.. Hell their fanboys are already at work and it's not out yet here.... Lol

    That was a good review, about what I was hoping from the phone too.

    Read the Verge article and I was shocked, iverge strikes again. There is clear favoritism going on there and for me they lose my respect. A phone this good needs to be called out, not buried because it's from a smaller vendor. Someone in their comments even said they lowered their score shortly after publication.

    Good review
    Although a true review is one based on a user's actual use of the phone in their own hand
    Not everyone will get the same results
    But, this is a really good phone
