Spend a few minutes with the new LG G4 and this much is apparent: LG is getting even more comfortable with the fact that it can make one hell of a smartphone, and do so in a way that’s not just different, but also really good.
How good? You don’t put your new phone side by side against the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S6 in a room full of journalists who have been singing its praises for weeks without being extremely confident in your product.
We’ve spent a little bit of time with the LG G4 here in New York City ahead of the unveiling at 1 World Trade Center — enough time for a quick hands-on, but not enough to answer some burning questions and really get a feel for if the G4 is as good as LG says it is.
We will, however, explain what a cow, ceramic paint and something that sounds like a James Bond flick have to do with a smartphone.
