At LG, accounting for less than 5% of the global smartphone market, however, was the line of LG G to the manufacturer’s – truly successful. The company has published data on sales of over 10 million units G3 for two months. Perhaps it is in the best QHD – display?
The flagship of the line G has the dimensions of 146.3 mm by 74.6 mm by 8.9 mm and weighs just under 150 grams. Devices from LG are known for, the manufacturer is trying to maximize the usable area of the body. smartphone screen occupies the entire space the front panel, while the share of the frame there are only a few millimeters.
The most characteristic is expressed in the previous model LG G2. In the new G3 manufacturer has not departed from tradition.
76.4% the enclosure takes QHD – display. This is the best indicator of the world at the moment.
Thanks to an ingenious arrangement to manage G3 with one hand without any difficulty.
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 get thinner, but slightly wider and heavier than its closest competitor from LG. Dimensions PHABLET – 153.5 mm by 78.6 mm by 8.5 mm.
Weight 176 grams. In the screen area ratio to the total area of the Galaxy Note 4 of the device shows no less impressive performance, although slightly inferior to LG G3.
This nomination is a victory for the LG G3. Dimensions of this gadget more compact, thoughtful and rational.
The design of the two flagships could be called the traditional segment Premium devices running on the Android platform. In their manufacture are not used innovative materials.
Only plastic, metal and glass.
LG G3 inherited appearance on its LG G2 predecessor. Housing flagship model is made entirely of polycarbonate.
The frame at the bottom of the device stylized metal, but in fact is a plastic.
The difference between the Note 3 and Note 4 also almost invisible and insignificant differences affected only the materials.
Thus, the back panel is decorated with new items from Samsung coating that mimics the natural leather. In general, the design of Galaxy Note 4 and few indistinguishable from the Galaxy Alpha, which was launched shortly before the Note flagship model line.
The best model in this category is not easy to identify. Preferences are subjective and depend entirely on the habits of the specific user.
Although it should be noted the existence of Galaxy Note 4 better materials and impact-resistant metal housing.
Thanks to this innovation from Samsung and is the winner in the category “Design”.
One of the unpleasant features of the Android operating system – the need for regular updating of the platform. New official firmware versions approved by device manufacturers, come with no fixed schedule, and at different times for different models of smartphones.
Until relatively recently, Samsung deservedly considered the best in the timely upgrade of its operating system, but the recent efforts of developers were sent to the other side, and positions shaken. Even users of the most popular gadgets have to wait for the next firmware update or a month.
The LG and other companies that use technology to OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer), the development of the updated firmware for their devices is not at all far from the first place and funded accordingly. Wait for a third-party developer of revolutionary ideas obviously pointless.
The flagship LG G3 runs on Android version 4.4.2 platform with multitasking shell KitKat. The company says that in the near future, users will be an update is available, but its release date has not yet officially announced.
Galaxy Note 4 at the outset was a modern version of Android 4.4.4 with a proprietary shell TouchWiz. It is also available for download many specialized samsungovskih S Health application type and options package for S Pen stylus.
Note 4 is also compatible with proprietary shell from LG.
In this category you can win on the right to send their Galaxy Note 4.Bolee latest version of the operating system and a large number of functions available make it undeniable advantages.
After the news of the imminent release of the flagship model in the line of G spread through the Internet, fans of the South Korean manufacturer began to actively discuss the question: what processor will be installed in the G3? Disputes resolved official statement LG.
It was announced that the new model will be equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 801.
Some experts immediately raised concerns whether it has enough processing power to operate the QHD – display. The fact that Snapdragon 801 having a clock speed of only 2.5 GHz, in terms of performance rather little different from its ancestor Snapdragon 800. A small increase in speed, memory bandwidth and graphics accelerator Adreno 330 GPU proved really insufficient for correct operation QHD technology.
A large number of users of LG G3 noted this fact as a significant disadvantage of this model.
Galaxy Note 4 is running the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805. This is the first device equipped with a quad-core processor with a frequency of 2.7 GHz and graphics accelerator Adreno 420 GPU.
Power chipset Note 4 about a third higher than the G3, so without too much difficulty to cope with loads of QHD resolution.
There is evidence that a separate party PHABLET Galaxy Note 4 are planning to equip the processor Exynos 5433 and accelerator GPU Mali T760. The power of this processor is even higher than the Snapdragon 805.
In some countries Samsung plans to sell this modification Note 4 is still unknown.
And in this category undeniable victory goes to the flagship Galaxy Note lineup.
QHD – LG G3 screen has a size of 5, 5-inch, wide viewing angle and good color reproduction. The screen resolution is 2560 pixels. by 1440 pixels. with a density of 534 ppi.
The latter figure is higher than that of the Galaxy Note 4 (515 ppi), but many other criteria LG flagship inferior to its competitor. The main downside G3 screen can be attributed to a relatively weak contrast ratio and IPS technology, which is called innovation is extremely difficult.
Galaxy Note 4 is equipped with a large display 5, 7 inches, the size of which is similar to the previous model Samsung Note 3. QHD technology is complemented by the innovative Super AMOLED matrix on the active light-emitting diodes, which gives a vivid picture quality, impressive color reproduction and excellent contrast. On a sunny day the screen Note 4 are not going blind, and makes it easy to read even very small text. The display is protected from mechanical damage impact-resistant glass Gorilla Glass 3 Gorning with the effect of volume 2, 5 D.
The test results clearly show – in this category Samsung Galaxy Note 4 wins another landslide victory.
The chamber is traditionally a weak point of LG smartphones, and even the flagship models are no different quality images, if they have to do in difficult conditions. The LG G3 has a main 13 – megapixel camera with a matrix of 1 / 3.06 “and aperture f 2.4 and front camera 2 megapixel 1 with an aperture of f 2.0, and the possibility of video recording at a resolution of 1080p and 30 frames per second.
The main camera records video in a much better than the front, 4K resolution (3840 to 2160 pixels) and 30 frames per second. In addition, it has an optical image stabilizer (which appeared for the first time in more LG G2) and two-tone LED flash.
The owners of Samsung Galaxy Note 4 – Main camera 16 megapixel 1 / 2.6 ‘with optical stabilization and aperture f 2.0 We do front and with the characteristics of 3.7, and f 1 and 9, respectively. Video is recorded in 4K format, which is similar to the characteristics of a competitor from LG.
But the image processing software with the main camera produces high-quality photos even in low light conditions.
The wide-angle front camera Note 4 for lovers make selfie. It allows you to record video at a resolution of 1080p and 30 fps. and take photos with the capture of up to 120 degrees.
Summing up this nomination can be stated that despite the fact that LG got to do, perhaps, the best in the history of the camera, the camera is on the Galaxy Note 4 still surpass it on the basic parameters and software capabilities. Victory again for the tablet from Samsung.
The flagship of the LG G3 is available in two versions – with flash – memory of 16 GB and 32 GB respectively. Version 16 GB has 2 gigabytes of RAM, and a more advanced 32 GB – as much as 3 GB of RAM. The smartphone supports microSD memory cards of up to 2 TB.
Since the devices of this kind in nature does not exist yet, the manufacturer claims can be considered rather imidzhevym course .Check the sincerity of those words is impossible.
The Galaxy Note 4 has 32 GB of internal memory and 3 GB of RAM. The gadget also supports a microSD card.
Manufacturers Samsung give a guarantee correct operation of the memory card capacity not exceeding 128GB.
At this point the performance of both models is almost identical. Draw.
connection type depends on the capacity and CPU performance, so at this point the difference between the two models is shown very clearly. LG G3 with Snapdragon 801 on board can work only in networks such as LTE Cat. 4. Download the data is limited to 150 Mbit / s.
This figure is 2 times less than the rate Galaxy Note 4. The flagship of Samsung supports LTE Cat-type network. 6 and loading at speeds up to 300 Mbit / s.
Skeptics argue that this figure is unlikely to be taken critically, because LTE Cat. 6 – a relatively new phenomenon, and it is rare.
Meanwhile, progressives are convinced that it is – only a matter of time. And for the future, which is created today, Samsung engineers will be in demand is already very, very soon.
Both the device supports dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 a / b / g / n / ac MIMO, wireless communication via Bluetooth and NFC. But here there is a small but significant difference.
Features LG G3 limited Bluetooth 4.0, and Galaxy Note 4 can work with Bluetooth 4.1.
Attention to detail and work for the future to create the impression of the gadget of the future. In this nomination once again the superiority of the flagship Galaxy Note 4 is beyond doubt.
The predecessor model G3 LG G2 differs ability to work independently for a long time, but he’s flagship boast, alas, can not. With a roomy full-time battery capacity of 3000 mAh (exactly the same as that of the G2), PHABLET quickly loses power.
The reason for that – energy-intensive QHD – resolution and screen size.
Galaxy Note 4 also features a QHD – display and on the size of the screen even surpasses competitor. However, it is better to cope with the energy saving, and can work in the active mode without recharging almost two days. And it is not in the capacity of the battery.
Note 4 Do it a little more – 3220 mAh. The fundamental difference – in a competent optimization processor under the battery features a thoughtful energy saving mode, and progressive technology AMOLED.
And here the Galaxy Note 4 beat competitor from LG. Total victory Samsung PHABLET.
In this review, we examined in detail the main characteristics of the two flagship smartphones of two South Korean manufacturers. For brackets were additional applications such as heart rate scanner and fingerprint ultraviolet sensor, the advantages of the stylus S Pen in Note 4 and the other is not as significant indicators.
Nevertheless, the outcome is obvious. Galaxy Note 4 from Samsung is able to compete on equal terms even with the iPhone 6 Plus.
A powerful processor, an innovative matrix AMOLED and support networks LTE Cat.6 promising novelty Samsung provided a convincing victory.
With respect to G3 we can say one thing – the rate is not enough productive Snapdragon processor 801 coupled progressive QHD – display is not played.
