    As an Android fan website, we of course are acutely aware that Android does a number of things better than Apple's iOS for the iPhone. Additionally we frequently will see specific OEMs add extra features in their devices. These are designed to differentiate themselves even further by adding even more functionality that the iPhone can't match. The new LG G4 is a perfect example. Without even blinking we came up with 5 awesome new features on this Android flagship that Apple's iPhone lacks.

    Here's the breakdown:
    1. Removable 3,000 mAh battery (with microSD slot)
    2. F1.8 camera aperture with manual shutter speed adjustments
    3. A three-axis optical image stabilization with laser auto-focus for the camera
    4. Color Spectrum Sensor under the LED flash for the camera
    5. 5.5-inch IPS Quantum Display with Quad-HD and 538ppi
    While it's true that three of these features could be lumped into one, since they are basically for the camera, the total still counts as 5 things the G4 can do that the iPhone can't. In fact, many of these features aren't even duplicated by other Android OEMs! We think LG could have a bonafide hit on their hands with this remarkable device! What do you guys think?

    Huge, but that's my only complaint. This phone's sounding great! How's that display compared to the s6? I know that phone supposedly has the best display on the market.

    The display is getting rave reviews from folks who previewed it already.

    Everything is nice except that there are no front facing speakers. Rear speakers are starting to annoy. o_O

    +1. With front facing speakers now a thing, why would anyone keep placing them on the rear of the device.

    on the move..

    Would have been a contender with front facing speakers
