LG G4c review

 

LG hopes to conquer the budget market with its new smartphone

Great screen ; Comfortable design ; Good battery life

Limited RAM ; Only 8GB of memory ; Poor front-facing camera

By now it's a well worn line, but one that remains pertinent: the Moto G changed everything.

LG G4c review: C for compromised - Pocket-lint

 

The LG G4c might look like a mini version of the flagship, but don't be fooled: it's a slow, laggy and compromised version that, quite honestly, muddies

Look and feel of G4 in a smaller package, decent camera performance, bright screen

Laggy performance, screen “sleeper” display issues, outsmarted by cheaper competitors, muddies the G4 name

Although we think the LG G4c has got the size and many of its design traits right, its laggy performance sends out the wrong message about the G4 namesake. It inadvertently compromises the flagship's integrity.

LG G4c review: The LG G4 mini that makes too many compromises

 

We review the LG G4c, a mid-range Android phone that sits as a smaller, cheaper version of the flagship LG G4

Overall we are disappointed with the LG G4C. It is neither cheap enough to be truly budget, nor good enough to stand out in a crowded middle of the Android phone market. Battery life is great, performance poor.

LG G4c review

 

The LG G4c has a great battery life and a good camera, but its display's colour accuracy is one of the worst we've ever tested

The LG G4c has a reasonable camera and a fantastic battery life, but when it's competing alongside the likes of Sony’s Xperia M4 Aqua, the Samsung Galaxy A3 and 3rd Gen Moto G, its poor screen, small amount of storage and mediocre performance simply...

LG G4c

 

What does the ‘c' stand for? Much as LG would never say it's the intention, ‘cheap' fits the bill pretty well. The LG G4c is a cut-down version of the LG G4, sharing its style but grafting it onto a smaller, more affordable phone.

Respectable screen ; Decent battery life

Laggy performance ; LG G4 similarity only skin deep ; Better value alternatives available

LG G4c Review: In Depth

 

LG G4c review: We review the LG G4's baby brother, a 5-inch Android packing tons of great features and an 8-megapixel snapper.

Long battery life ; Rear mounted controls ; Feature packed

Disappointing camera ; Occasionally stuttery

The LG G4c is a seriously stripped back, affordable version of the G4 which manages to keep most of the useful features we know and love. It’s more easily handled than the G4 and the 720p screen is still solid, but the odd performance stutter and...

LG G4c Smartphone Review

 

I'd love to be a flagship. LG shrinks its LG G4 to 5-inches and an RRP of 279 Euros (~$306). The new G4c model sports a quad-core SoC from Qualcomm, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB internal storage, NFC, and LTE Cat. 4. Android 5.0.2 Lollipop is preloaded. The...

Build, Bright, viewing angle stable IPS screen, Very good battery life, LTE and NFC, Decent UI and smooth handling

Middling speaker, Camera module in low light, Moderate voice quality, Tiny internal storage, Inaccurate GPS

Buyers of LG's G4c will find a decent smartphone with a bright IPS screen and very good battery life at a price of approximately 250 Euros (~$274). However, flagship features should not be expected. LTE Cat. 4 and 802.11 b/g/n dual-band Wi-Fi alongside...

LG G4c review

 

The LG G4c is a cheaper, more compact version of LG's outstandingly good flagship G4 smartphone. Whilst it shares the stylish looks of the G4, the G4c misses out on many of its best features. However, for a phone costing around £200, it's still...

The G4c takes the design of a flagship phone, miniaturises it a little, and slashes the cost. So far, so good. Sadly though, it strips out the high-end features that make the G4 such an extraordinary phone. What's left is a good all-round mid-range...
