LG G5 vs LG G4


 

The LG G5 marked a dramatic departure from the norm for LG, with their latest flagship offering being the first to feature an all metal build. As significant as the change in build material is, what makes the G5 stand out from the crowd even more is its modular nature, possible courtesy of a removable bottom chin, allowing for other useful add-ons to be attached.

The LG G5 is certainly very different, but are these differences enough to make it a worthy upgrade from its predecessor? We find out, as we take a comprehensive look at the LG G5 vs LG G4!

Design

As mentioned, LG completely changed the formula with the G5, not only when looking at the build quality, but also with regards to the design. The full metal build makes the G5 feel more premium than any of its predecessors, but it has to be mentioned that with the coat of primer and paint, the G5 does unfortunately fall short when compared to its metal brethren. An aspect like design always comes down to individual preference, but many will agree that the G5 isn’t exactly the most attractive phone that LG has produced.

LG G5 Modules-3

Of course, the big story here is the modular capabilities that the device comes with. The bottom chin can be removed by the simple press of a button, and allows you to attach different modules in its place. Some of these modules, which LG calls “Friends,” include the Cam Plus, a camera grip with physical button and controls, and a Bang & Olufsen Hi-fi audio DAC, that provides higher quality audio. The removable chin means that you also have access to the battery, so despite the change in design and build quality, LG still managed to retain staple features like a replaceable battery, which is something that quite a few users will appreciate.

On the other hand is the LG G4, and when looking at these two smartphones side by side, its hard to imagination that these are part of the same flagship series, and only a year apart. The G4 is made entirely of plastic, or leather and plastic for those who opt for the leather back cover options. The G4 seems to also be the last LG smartphone to feature the company’s signature curved body and display, which is certainly a shame, as the curve not only allowed for a unique look, but also favorably contributed to the handling experience. The G4 also comes with a replaceable battery, which can be accessed in the more traditional manner of simply removing the back cover.

Another big different between these phones can be found in the button layout. The G5 retains the rear-mounted power button from the G4, but the volume rocker has now been moved to a more standard location on the side. The latest LG flagship has a smaller overall footprint compared to its predecessor as, which is understandable, given that it features a slightly smaller display.

As far as one-handed usability is concerned, the G5 does provide the better handling experience, but the G4 isn’t far behind either, courtesy of its curved back, and ultra-thin bezels along the sides of the display up front.

Display

LG G5 VS LG G4-17

The LG G5 comes with a 5.3-inch IPS LCD display with a Quad HD resolution, while the G4 features a 5.5-inch IPS LCD screen, with the same resolution. Apart from the additional screen real estate that is available with the G4, both these displays are comparable in terms of quality. You get good viewing angles, brightness, and color reproduction with both, but it has to be said that neither can be considered the best display out there.

The display of the G5 does exhibit much cooler tones when compared to the G4, but that is something you will only notice when have the two devices side by side. The other big difference is that the LG G5 comes with an Always On display, that can show you the time, notifications, or a custom message.

Performance and hardware

LG G5 VS LG G4-4

Under the hood, the LG G5 comes with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, clocked at 2.15 GHz, and backed by the Adreno 530 GPU and 4 GB of RAM. This is the latest and greatest that is available, and powers all other current generation flagship smartphones as well, so it’s no surprise that the phone is extremely fast and responsive.

On the other hand, the LG G4 is powered by the older hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, clocked at 1.82 GHz, and backed by the Adreno 418 GPU and 3 GB of RAM. While this remains a reliable processing package, and the G4 does still perform very well, it obviously doesn’t hold a candle to the far more powerful G5, and the generally snappier performance that you get with the latter.

LG G5 VS LG G4-12

32 GB is the only storage option available with both, and both smartphones also come with expandable storage via microSD card, for up to an additional 200 GB. Things remain largely the same in terms of hardware, but the LG G5 does come with a fast and accurate fingerprint scanner that is embedded into the power button on the back. LG has also made the switch the USB Type-C with their latest flagship.

LG G5 VS LG G4-19

The LG G5 comes with a 2,800 mAh battery, which is slightly smaller than the 3,000 mAh unit found with the G4, but things are about the same when it comes to battery life. Both smartphones can comfortably allow for a full day of use, but you won’t get much more than that from either. Both devices also come with fast charging capabilities, so if you are running low on battery, you can get back to a full charge very quickly. Finally, both batteries are also removable, so if battery life is a concern, you always have the option of carrying around spares.

Camera

LG G5 VS LG G4-11

Both the LG G5 and G4 use the same 16 MP primary camera with an f/1.8 aperture and OIS, but with the G5, LG has also tacked on a secondary 8 MP shooter with a wide angle lens, which allows for some incredible looking wide angle shots. This secondary camera is a lot of fun to use, and is by far one of the best features of the LG G5.

LG G5 camera samples

There are some subtle differences when it comes to the camera software, with the G5 coming with a few extra features modes, such as Multiview mode, which lets you use all three cameras at once, or Snap mode, that can be used to record a string of 3 second clips. Other than that, the camera application remains the same, with both featuring simple and auto modes, and if you are looking to dive in a little deeper, there is a robust manual mode with DSLR-like granular control over aspects like white balance, ISO, shutter speed, and more.

LG G4 camera samples

With both phones featuring the same 16 MP primary shooters, the assumption would be that the image quality would also be similar, but that is surprisingly not the case. Both take very sharp photos with a lot of detail, but the post-processing with the cameras is slightly different. The G5 creates images with more contrast and more vibrant colors, resulting in much darker shadows and less detail in these areas. On the other hand, the G4 goes in the opposite direction, with images coming with less contrast and slightly less color, but you do get a brighter shot overall, with more detail in the shadows. The only drawback here is that because of the brighter image, you are also getting overblown highlights.

Software

LG G5 VS LG G4-18

On the software side of things, both the LG G4 and LG G5 are running Android 6.0 Marshmallow but with two completely different versions of LG’s interface. The G4 comes with an older version of G UI which is packed with a ton of features that may or may not be all that useful, and it feels a lot more intrusive, with a lot of these features being activated by default. With the G5, the new LG UX may still not be the best interface out there, but it is a big improvement over previous iterations. It is still very cartoonish, with its brightly colored icons, but the overall aesthetics look a lot cleaner and more streamlined.

LG G5 VS LG G4-10

With the G5, LG also got rid of some features like Dual Window, and have hidden features like the QSlide apps and Smart Bulletin, but are still available for those who want to use them. The biggest change that has been made is the removal of the app drawer, which can certainly take some getting used to, and leaves users dependent on folders to keep things organized. Of course, you always have the option to download a third-party launcher from the Google Play Store to bring back the app drawer, and LG has an official option available as well, downloadable from the LG SmartWorld app.

Final thoughts

LG G5 VS LG G4-16

So, there you have it for this closer look at the LG G5 vs LG G4! The big question here is whether the LG G5 brings enough to the table to be considered a worthy upgrade from its predecessor, and the answer really depends on how much you want all the new features that the G5 brings into the picture, such as the modular design, the dual rear cameras, and the fingerprint sensor.

The LG G4 does everything we expect from a smartphone really well, allowing for smooth performance, a great viewing experience, fantastic camera, and good battery life. With the G5, LG has certainly made improvements to all of those aspects, and something like its modular capabilities can prove to be quite compelling as well. All said and done, the LG G5 is definitely worth the upgrade, but if you do decide to stick with the G4, you can rest assured that you still have a more than reliable daily driver.

Looking back at the LG G4


Mobile World Congress 2016 is just around the corner, and as has been the case every year, there is a slew of Android smartphones that we can’t wait to get our hands on. Particularly exciting is the upcoming launch of the flagship offerings from the two Korean giants, Samsung and LG, but before ushering the new, we thought that some retrospection may be in order. We’ve already revisited the Samsung Galaxy S6, and this is our look back at the LG G4.

Last year, LG was the final holdout as far as offering expandable storage and removable batteries was concerned, and with even Samsung letting go of these previously staple features in favor of an admittedly premium design, the LG G4 was the only option if these features were important to you. Granted, expandable storage was still an option with some flagship releases that followed the G4, but removable batteries has almost entirely gone by the wayside with premium smartphones.

What the G4 offered over the competition was already a big plus, but LG managed to pack it all in to a beautifully-designed body as well; the G4 offers a slightly curved display that was adopted from the G Flex line, along with LG staples like the ultra-thin bezels and rear button layout. There were some extra, stylish elements found as well, with users able to choose a leather rear backing for the device, available in a variety of colors and textures. Of course, the more standard metallic (seen in this video) and ceramic finishes were available as well so there is certainly something for everyone.

lg g4 now aa (6 of 23)

The overall design aesthetic has paid dividends, with the ergonomically-friendly curved body making for a smartphone that is one of the most comfortable to use. With its unique elements, the G4 looks different from pretty much every other Android smartphone out there. However, this did lead to some issues, with the curved sides and thin profile of the device, resulting in a device that’s difficult to grip. This problem was particularly prevalent when lying in bed and holding the phone up above your face, resulting in a few, quite painful, drops.

lg g4 now aa (4 of 23)

If the current rumors about the LG G5 are true, we might actually be seeing the end of the curved display and still unique rear button layout. This will, of course, be a radically different addition to the flagship G series, and while LG is definitely going to make the design stand out, the death of these features will certainly be a shame. We really liked the design language of the LG G4, as the device stands out from the crowd, and we’re hoping that the LG G5 doesn’t disappoint.

lg g4 now aa (15 of 23)

In terms of hardware, the LG G4 brings to the table pretty much everything that is expected from a high-end LG flagship. Continuing from its predecessor, the LG G4 features a 5.5-inch IPS LCD display with a Quad HD resolution, and comes with excellent color reproduction and high brightness levels, allowing it to be legible in broad daylight.

lg g4 now aa (14 of 23)

Under the hood is a hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, and while Qualcomm did have a technically superior processing package on offer in 2015 in the Snapdragon 810, the former manages to do a good job. Overall, the Snapdragon 808 proves to be nothing short of reliable, with the G4 easily able to handle GPS navigation, YouTube and Netflix video playback, music playback and general day-to-day use. The only noticeable slowdown was while gaming, with the handset displaying a little stutter while navigating in-game menus or in some cases, while playing the games themselves.

lg g4 now aa (18 of 23)

Of course, the main claim to fame for the LG G4 is all that it offers, which primarily are expandable storage and a replaceable battery. It has to be said here however, that I haven’t used a replaceable battery since the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, which is obviously a very long time ago. As far as battery life is concerned, I was able to get a full day of use out of the device, with an average of around 3.5 hours of screen-on time, which is on par with what you can expect from most smartphones..

lg g4 now aa (12 of 23)

Expandable storage is also something that I concern myself with only when I’m close to running out of space on the device, and the 32 GB of built-in storage proved to be quite sufficient to cover my needs. That said, if these features are necessary for you, the LG G4 remains your best bet, and we’ll have to wait and see if the micro SD card returns in the upcoming LG G5.

lg g4 now aa (21 of 23)

The 16MP primary shooter on the LG G4 comes with f/1.8 aperture, laser autofocus and a colour spectrum sensor, and proves to be pretty reliable. When using the G4 in Auto mode, I found the experience to be quite fun, requiring just a tap anywhere on the screen in order to take a shot. While the picture taken is good most of the time, Manual mode is perfect for those moments where Auto mode doesn’t quite cut it.

2015 was the year of the manual mode, and the LG G4 showed us what it could be like, with granular control over minute details. For example, even the Kelvin readings inside the white balance setting were available, so if the Auto mode wasn’t up to the task, I was able to tweak the settings to exactly what I wanted using the manual mode.

The only qualm with manual mode was the fact that using a touchscreen to change settings can be a little bit cumbersome, and it takes time to get settings correctly adjusted, which isn’t great when you’re trying to take a shot quickly. The overall picture quality has been good, with nice and detailed photos, even though the coloration could use the extra punch that I’m used to from other phones.

lg g4 now aa (20 of 23)

Finally, on the software side of things, you may have seen in the video above that I’m running the Google Now launcher on the LG G4. That may not come as much of a surprise as, unfortunately, LG’s G UI does not have that many useful features, even though it isn’t lacking in them. For example, the Smart Widget on the home screen only really served to offer weather updates. There is also the Smart Cleaner, which I have only used once or twice, and also the Q Slide, which I am thankfully able to hide in the notification drop down.

So there you have it for this quick look back at the LG G4! The overall experience with this smartphone has been very good, and it remains a very reliable device to have, especially if you’re able to leverage features like expandable storage and a removable battery. The design aspect is what I have enjoyed the most about this phone, and we hope that, even if we don’t see some of the more unique elements make it over to the LG G5, we get to see them in other parts of LG’s lineup.

2015 was the year of the manual mode, and the LG G4 showed us what it could be like, with granular control over minute details. For example, even the Kelvin readings inside the white balance setting were available, so if the Auto mode wasn’t up to the task, I was able to tweak the settings to exactly what I wanted using the manual mode.

The only qualm with manual mode was the fact that using a touchscreen to change settings can be a little bit cumbersome, and it takes time to get settings correctly adjusted, which isn’t great when you’re trying to take a shot quickly. The overall picture quality has been good, with nice and detailed photos, even though the coloration could use the extra punch that I’m used to from other phones.

Finally, on the software side of things, you may have seen in the video above that I’m running the Google Now launcher on the LG G4. That may not come as much of a surprise as, unfortunately, LG’s G UI does not have that many useful features, even though it isn’t lacking in them. For example, the Smart Widget on the home screen only really served to offer weather updates. There is also the Smart Cleaner, which I have only used once or twice, and also the Q Slide, which I am thankfully able to hide in the notification drop down.

So there you have it for this quick look back at the LG G4! The overall experience with this smartphone has been very good, and it remains a very reliable device to have, especially if you’re able to leverage features like expandable storage and a removable battery. The design aspect is what I have enjoyed the most about this phone, and we hope that, even if we don’t see some of the more unique elements make it over to the LG G5, we get to see them in other parts of LG’s lineup.

While Android 6.0 Marshmallow doesn’t bring along all too many visual changes, there are a handful of great features under the hood that come with the update. For starters, you’ll get to take advantage of the wonderful Google Now on Tap, which essentially brings the power of Google Now to every corner of your phone. There’s also an improved app permissions system, Doze Mode for saving battery when you’re not using your phone, access to Android Pay, and much more.

It should be noted that the update might take a few days to reach your device, so don’t worry if you haven’t received it yet. If you’d like to check for it manually, head to Settings>About phone>Update center>System updates>Check for update. Have you received Marshmallow on your G4? If so, let us know how you’re liking it!

Hey T-Mobile users, check LG Bridge for your LG G4 Marshmallow update


lg g4 review aa (25 of 34)

LG is on a roll when it comes to updates, and the latest to join the Marshmallow club is the LG G4 model sold by T-Mobile in the United States.


Android 6.0 marshmallow logo DSC_0126See also: Android 6.0 Marshmallow updates roundup – February 2, 2016103

Screenshot_2016-02-04-15-03-33Following the release of the Android 6.0 to the unlocked G4 sold across Europe, in South Korea, on US Cellular and on Canada’s Telus and Rogers, LG has now made Marshmallow available on the T-Mobile LG G4 (H811) via its PC synchronization software LG Bridge.

Many users have reported being able to update their LG G4 to Marshmallow by connecting their phone via USB to PC and checking for an update manually. Note that an over the air (OTA) update is not yet available and T-Mobile’s support page for the G4 doesn’t yet mention yet the availability of the update.

As with other recent LG devices getting the Marshmallow upgrade, you’re looking at improvements for Knock Code, the implementation of the new app permissions model, a redesigned Silent Mode, Peek mode, and some visual changes.

If you’re into rooting and ROM-ing, the folks over at XDA-Developers already have you covered with a fully stock ROM available for flashing, as well as the necessary rooting methods.

Thanks, Brooke!

LG admits G4 bootloop problem is a hardware fault, will repair affected devices


lg-g4-review-aa-24-of-34

After several months of LG G4 owners complaining of a bootloop issue to no avail, we picked up the story and confronted LG. The official response has come through and it should make G4 owners happy: LG has acknowledged the LG G4 bootloop issue is a hardware defect and will repair affected devices.

According to the numerous posts on various social platforms and YouTube, the bootloop problem potentially affects all regional models and carrier-branded LG G4 units. After a prolonged investigation, LG has identified the source of the problem as a “loose contact between components” and vowed to repair it, with apologies to LG G4 owners that have been suffering from this problem with no resolution in sight.

Here’s the full statement LG made to Android Authority:

LG Electronics has been made aware of a booting issue with the LG G4 smartphone that has now been identified as resulting from a loose contact between components. Customers who are experiencing booting issues with their LG G4s should contact their local carrier from where the G4 was purchased or a nearby LG Service Center (www.lg.com/common) for repair under full warranty.

Customers who purchased their G4 devices from non-carrier retailers should contact an LG Service Center with the understanding that warranty conditions will differ. LG Electronics is committed to providing the highest standards of product quality and customer service and apologizes for the inconvenience caused to some of our customers who initially received incorrect diagnoses.

If you have a LG G4 with bootloop problems, you should now be able to get the troublesome connector repaired and get your phone back in working condition. LG confirmed that earlier attempts to fix the problem were misdiagnoses which led to the wrong parts being replaced. With the problem properly identified, it should be smooth sailing for repairs from here on in.

LG G4 owners launch petition to address bootloop issue


lg-g4-first-look-aa-2-of-32

For the past couple of months, various LG G4 owners around the globe have been complaining about a mysterious bootloop problem affecting the device. For no apparent reason, the LG G4 will randomly reboot and get stuck in a bootloop with no apparent resolution. A petition has now been formed to get LG to officially address the issue.

The petition has been created as a means to force LG into not only acknowledging the problem, but also to institute a free replacement scheme for all affected models of the G4. According to the petition’s creator, Santiago Archila, the issue potentially affects all G4s, not just specific carrier-branded or regional models. According to Archila, LG’s response thus far has been unacceptable.

Complaints have been floating around the internet since September, 2015 – and some carriers have even acknowledged the problem as a “known issue” – but LG has reportedly not handled the issue in a consistent way. Some users have had their device replaced while others have been told their model number isn’t eligible for repair or replacement.

Some carriers have even acknowledged the problem as a “known issue”, but LG has reportedly not handled the issue in a consistent way.

If you scour YouTube, Twitter, Reddit and various Android forums like XDA Developers, you can find plenty of evidence of the problem, including multiple videos showing it in effect. The problem certainly seems to be widespread enough that an official investigation and statement from LG is warranted. We’ve reached out to LG for comment and will update this story with any response.

When the problem was initially flagged, it was thought the issue only affected early model G4 units (ie those built before October 2015) and was a hardware problem related to the motherboard on specific variants. But the claims of random bootloops have persisted, with users on all carriers and in all regions being affected with no simple solution.

If you have an LG G4 and have been affected by this issue, we encourage you to contact LG and your carrier or retailer. Signing the petition can’t hurt, but you’re better off attempting to get your particular situation remedied yourself than hoping someone else will force LG’s hand.

If you have suspicions as to what is causing the problem, please hit the comments below to share your thoughts.

Flashbacks and Forecasts: LG in 2016


LG V10 Vs LG G4 Quick Look-10

In our second installment of Flashbacks and Forecasts, let’s take a look at LG in 2015 and make some predictions for 2016. LG’s empire may not be very big compared to Samsung’s, but the “other” South Korean OEM has been making some very impressive phones for the last several years and manages to cast a much larger shadow than its comparatively diminutive scale would lead you to believe.

LG in 2015

LG got off to a tumultuous start in 2015 thanks to a rather bizarre incident in September of 2014 during the IFA trade show in Berlin. You may remember the rather comical accusations that an LG executive willfully sabotaged four Samsung washing machines in a shopping mall in an attempt to secure a “competitive advantage”. Bizarrely, the case lasted for an entire year, with the exec finally being acquitted in December 2015.

But it wasn’t all crazy hijinks in 2015 for the company formerly known as Lucky Goldstar, with a weak start to the product lineup and worrying earnings and market trends making it look like a tough year lie ahead.

Despite making some great phones in 2015, LG was to suffer from the same market fortunes of every other large smartphone manufacturer besides Apple.

Despite making some great phones in 2015, LG was to suffer from the same market fortunes of every other large smartphone manufacturer besides Apple. Increased competition, a plateauing mobile market and increasingly difficult product differentiation put LG in a tough spot throughout the year.

The LG G Flex 2 was the first product off the ranks and it flopped rather spectacularly, despite being light years better than the original G Flex. Most blamed the problems surrounding the Snapdragon 810 processor and thermal throttling issues as the reason for the G Flex 2’s poor performance, but whatever it was, it set the stage for a rollercoaster of a year.

Legal problems

In March of 2015, LG and Samsung agreed to call off their various ongoing legal disputes and to play nice for a change, but by the end of the year both companies found themselves being sued along with Apple and Qualcomm  by ParkerVision in December 2015 over cellular radio frequency patent infringements. The case has just been picked up officially for investigation by the U. S. International Trade Commission for unfair trade practices.

LG also got entangled legally with its display partner Apple at the end of 2015, when accusations were levelled at Apple for not licensing LG’s LTE patents which are part of the LTE standard. As always, patent disputes throughout the year continued to distract LG and everyone else from the business at hand. Perhaps this is why Samsung is calling for the Supreme Court to re-evaluate the patent law system. Fortunately, nothing terribly bad happened to the company throughout the year.

Smartphone performance

Following on from a solid last half of 2014, 2015 sales started off quite well, with LG posting its highest ever Q1 revenue since LG entered the smartphone business back in 2010. The company shipped 15.4 million smartphones in the quarter, only 0.1 million less than the previous quarter (which is typically higher due to the holiday buying season). For reference, LG’s best quarter came in Q3 2014, when it posted a record high 16.8 million devices sold.

Unfortunately, the good start to 2015 wasn’t to last, with Q2 earnings slumping by 60% YoY, making Q2, 2015 LG’s lowest quarterly profit in a year and a half. This was the quarter in which the Snapdragon 810 and G Flex 2’s poor reception were felt most acutely. LG’s weak performance in the quarter and increasing competition from China, witnessed LG slip out of the global top five smartphone vendors, shipping only 14.1 million units.

lg-g4-first-look-aa-2-of-32

On the television side, despite maintaining its number two spot globally, LG also saw its worst TV sales in over four years.  The LG G4 arrived in Q2, 2015, but wasn’t able to make much difference to the quarter’s profits. Despite having a remarkably good camera, just as the G Flex 2 did, the G4 failed to make a huge impact, primarily for not offering enough product differentiation, according to analysts. Nevertheless, LG was confident it could turn things around in the next quarter with the LG V10 and Nexus 5X.

LG Mobile is losing vast amounts of money, but despite the ups and downs, LG has come out with a profit in every quarter of 2015 so far.

Fortunately, it did. But not by much. Shipments in Q3, 2015 went up to 14.9 million but they were still not enough to get LG back in the top five behind Samsung, Apple, Huawei, Lenovo and Xiaomi respectively. LG Mobile lost vast amounts of money again, but overall LG came out slightly ahead. In fact, despite the ups and downs, LG has come out with a profit in every quarter of 2015 so far.

A strong finish?

So what can we expect for LG’s Q4, 2015 earnings? Considering the V10 has sold much better than the G Flex series ever did, and interest in the Nexus 5X has been decent, if over-shadowed by the Nexus 6P, smartphone sales for Q4 should be strong. However, LG’s device sales are typically made up of more mid-range devices than flagships and the second generation Watch Urbane is unlikely to make any real impact.

LG Mobile earnings shouldn’t see such massive losses in the final quarter of the year, but it’s still quite likely a loss will be made, just not as bad as previous quarters. Nevertheless, LG’s other divisions like LG Display, LG Home Appliance and LG Chem will likely make up for the shortfall, but only just, and see LG finish off the year with another net profit and operating profit, as modest as they may be.

LG V10 Hands On-4

2016: a lot rests on the LG G5 and continued aesthetic differentiation

So what does this mean for 2016? What does LG’s generally downward-trending market share allow us to predict? The first thing is that LG already knows that product differentiation at this point only needs to be skin-deep in order to succeed, with very little differentiating flagship devices internally these days. The G series’ rear-key setup was evidence of this, as was the V10’s secondary screen.

LG already knows that product differentiation at this point only needs to be skin-deep in order to succeed.

The rumored modular nature of the LG G5 will absolutely help it stand out in an otherwise very “samey” marketplace. For the uninitiated, the device will reportedly have a removable bottom section that will allow for different modules – cameras, larger batteries etc – to be inserted. It’s an interesting idea that, like the V10 screen, might take some explaining, but will certainly make the G5 a unique device.

We can safely assume the G Flex series has been officially retired and that LG won’t be making a fourth Nexus in 2016. That opens up some space for some other possibilities, perhaps in the wearable sector and perhaps in tablets. The V10 will absolutely see a second iteration and LG will be on the lookout for even more new ways to stick out from the crowd, so expect some more whacky new features as 2016 progresses.

Managing the trouble ahead

Fortunately, LG also has LG Chem and LG Display up its sleeve and both of these divisions will be working overtime on new flexible displays and battery technologies. Breakthroughs in these areas would not only boost LG Electronics’ fortunes but also generate a lot more component sales for the company, something Samsung is relying on in these tough times.

The LG G5, running the Snapdragon 820 no doubt, has a lot of potential to get LG off to a solid start in 2016.

The lawsuit against LG and other companies regarding RF patents could cost the company dearly if found guilty, but the case will likely take a while to conclude. The LG G5, running the Snapdragon 820 no doubt, has a lot of potential to get LG off to a solid start, but only if the modular nature isn’t seen as pointless or received as an Apple-like proprietary gimmick.

As far as competition goes, the G5 will be in direct competition with the Samsung Galaxy S7 and its multiple variants, which are also expected to debut at the Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona at the end of February. If the rumors of a return of microSD to the Galaxy S range are true, it could negatively impact LG’s recent advantage, which has seen it become the default fall-back option for Samsung fans slighted by the removal of microSD in the Galaxy range.

LG’s mid-range offerings throughout the year will see increasingly tough competition from low-cost Chinese manufacturers like Xiaomi at the same time as LG’s high-end competition expands to include challengers like Huawei. Sony and HTC may be near irrelevant these days and Motorola’s transformation might put it off the radar, but LG has more than enough things to worry about internally.

The recent job cuts in the WebOS team at LG Silicon Valley Labs means we won’t be seeing too much from that department in 2016 but LG’s Vehicle Components division has been identified as one to keep an eye on. A massive new OLED factory should help pay the bills, especially if it starts making panels for the iPhone 7 like Samsung is rumored to be doing, and LG’s home appliances are performing well.

LG-k10-hands-on-AA-(8-of-9)

The forecast

The recent high-level exec restructuring at LG is designed to “give each executive more independence and responsibility to facilitate rapid decision-making”. The company is clearly aware it needs to shake things up a little to remain competitive. While the last quarter of 2015 may not be too bad, LG’s smartphone business is unmistakably being carried by LG’s other divisions.

Differentiation will be the name of the game for LG in 2016.

As with Samsung, LG is also facing heightened competition from China in the low-cost sector as well as in the high-end market due to the success of the iPhone 6. Differentiation will be the name of the game for LG in 2016: it already has good batteries, solid performance and an excellent camera. All that remains is a software overhaul and ways to stick out. With any luck this means we’ll see some really exciting new developments from LG this year and a few more high-profile risks taken.
