    Hey guys. Hope everyone is having a nice day.

    I have just ordered myself an LG G4 in brown leather.

    I have been an avid windows phone user since windows phone 7 came out nearly 5 years ago, starting off with an LG OPtimus 7 and having 8 phones between then and now. I am currently on a Nokia 1520 which is about 18 months old and is starting to get tired. I baby my phones, it has been in a case with a screen protector all its life but the battery is barley lasting half a day now and the screen is blotching. It is also restarting randomly as well. Not that impressed as the phone isn't terribly old.

    Anyways, I moved from android to windows phone those years ago. I had a HTC Legend which was a beautiful phone in many ways but android was so desperately laggy and unreliable, not very nice to use. Windows phone despite it's poor specs at the time was clean, easy to use and reliable.

    However, MS have reversed their marketing approach. They initially only focused on mid to high end devices, but now they are only tackling low to mid end range. There is no replacement for my 1520, and the phone itself was discontinued a while back, and MS has said there will be no phablet this year.

    Not only that, but my sister has just got a G Flex 2 and android seems to have come on a long way in many aspects and looks great, so I went for a G4.

    Not only that, but it is a given android support their phones better and the app store is so much more.

    These days, to me a phone is a phone, as long as I can check general notifications, text and phone then that is fine. Light gaming and internet browsing. I am not into rooting phones or doing them yet, but that may change!

    So yeah. I am looking forward to it. I should be receiving it in a couple of days times

    I have a couple of queries regarding android and will probably sources AC in time xD

    Hello and welcome to Android C!🙋
    I have a G4 myself and think you'll enjoy.
    It's a beauty.
    (I also envy you the 1520 but I'd better not say too much about that here.☺)

    Thank you chap I am from England, so I ordered it from the Carphone Warehouse. It was in stock and has already been dispatched! Just had a text message to say it will be delivered tomorrow !

    The red leather one is available form the 5th June in the UK at least, but the brown leather one was my first choice anyway.

    Ahh, why not? The 1520 is a very good phone and probably the best windows phone. I have been very happy with it and it has served me well, and I will be keeping it as a good back up you know. I just wanted a change really and lollipop looks like the best version of android to date!

    What combination colour do you have yours in ?

    Welcome to Android Central! I'm new here myself.

    I was actually really excited about Windows Phone myself, but like you said, the direction that Microsoft is taking doesn't fit us at all. But I think that's just the only market left for them; Android and iOS have already captured the high end device market.

    I'm thinking of upgrading to a G4 too! Tell us how you like it.

    The G line of phones are nice. I had a G3 for awhile.

    Thank you chap. Their G line has been around for a while now. Yes, the G3 is still regarded a very good smartphone.

    By the way, I drive a VW :P

    I have the grey plastic-backed version. I'm also in the UK but my G4 was sent to me from the US. Since it was not readily available from Carphone at the time, I decided to nip into my local branch - an almost daily habit - and show it to them. But they weren't interested as they had one in the back room. They think I'm odd, I fear.

    (When a friend went into his local store in the US to show them his G4, they were all over it.)

    Welcome back to AC from the Windows Phone world. My first smartphone was a PocketPC and then Windows Smartphone, both precursors to the new Windows Phone Platform. I also had several of the newer phones. always come back to Android, its the best.

    I left iOS to come to Android and I got the LG G4 as well. I wanted a Nokia Lumia 1020 very badly because of the camera, but I was disappointed in the lack of apps, especially Google Maps. I panic when I get lost.

    Enjoy your new phone!
