The LG G4c is a compact version of the LG G4 . A terminal with a panel of 5 inches HD resolution , four processor cores and a good front 5 megapixel camera to perform good selfies. This terminal will come with the Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system , the latest version of Google icons. And all this with 4G connectivity to reach connection speeds of up to 150 Mbps . The LG G4c will arrive in the Spanish market in the coming weeks with a price that has not yet been confirmed. We tell you all the details that have been revealed in a thorough analysis.
Design and display
The new LG G4c will arrive in a standard five-inch format that is shared by a large part of the mid-range and upper-mid-range models. This device offers an elegant look with a case that will be available in three different shades: white, gold and dark gray . One of the differential touches that must be noted is the use of a diamond-shaped pattern on the back, which generates a quite premium feeling. The full measurements of this smartphone stand at 139.7 x 69.8 x 10.2 millimeters, while its weight reaches 136 grams.
In the field of the screen we advance that is a panel IPS 5 - inch HD resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels . This resolution provides a density of 294 dots per inch, a sufficient level of detail to enjoy apps and games on the Android platform. Of course, it may fall a bit short when it comes to watching videos and movies in high resolution. As we always like to emphasize, the main advantage of using IPS technology is excellent viewing angles of up to 178 degrees both horizontally and vertically.
Within the photographic section, the LG G4c bets on a rear camera with eight megapixel resolution , LED flash and autofocus . It is a medium lens, far from the big names in the market but it should be enough to take decent photos on a day-to-day basis. In addition, it has the ability to record video in high resolution of 1080p. As for the front camera, it leaves us one of the good news of this model, since it maintains a resolution of 5 megapixels that will be appreciated by selfies enthusiasts.
Memory and power
This model uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad- core processor with a power of 1.2 GHz per core, along with a standard 1 GB RAM. It is a humble set, although sufficient to run without problems most of the apps and games offered by the Android platform . Of course, if we are among users who are used to using many open applications at the same time, it is very likely that this RAM memory falls short and lowers the performance of the smartphone.
The internal memory of the LG phone stands at 8 GB . In principle, it is a sufficient capacity if we do not make intensive use of the smartphone. If you need it, you can use a MicroSD memory card or an online storage service such as Google Drive or Dropbox .
Operating system and applications
Another of the strengths of this model is that it will hit the market with the latest version of the Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system. Google icons have become the most popular option on their own merits (more than four out of every five smartphones sold carry this platform). In addition, with Lollipop we witness a major facelift with a more beautiful and colorful interface . Its use is more intuitive and we have a good number of small improvements that add up to a lot in the user experience. For example, now we can see the remaining charge time to have a full batteryor an estimate of the battery time that we need until the terminal is discharged. In addition, we now have the option to create a guest mode to keep our files and personal photos safe from prying eyes. Among the additions that LG has included we would like to highlight the specific way to unlock the terminal with just a series of keystrokes when the screen is off.
In the field of connections, the main attraction of this equipment is the compatibility with high-speed 4G networks with up to 150 Mbps. This is an important attraction here in Spain, since the main operators in the market have deployed these networks with a lot of quickly and already cover an important part of the Spanish geography. At home we can connect through the WiFi network to save on data. Other connections also include Bluetooth 4.1 technology to synchronize this mobile with other accessories such as a smart watch or an external speaker, GPS with A-GPS to navigate or NFC to make payments through touch.
Autonomy, price and opinions
This model includes a 2,540 milliamp battery but we do not yet have official data on its usage time. The same goes for its price. Of course, we should not have to wait long since it is expected to reach the Spanish market between the end of this month and the following month. In short, a mid-range team that sports a set of balanced specifications but that hardly stand out from the rest of the market bets . Of course, we especially liked its design , quite elegant and with a premium appearance that enhance the appeal of the LG G4c .
