LG has commenced a global roll out of its flagship G4 smartphone, but Australia will have to wait until the second half of 2015 before its local release.

Company representatives told Good Gear Guide LG is striving to release the smartphone by the second week of July.

The LG flagship is being positioned against Samsung’s Galaxy S6. Promotional material focuses on the camera’s superior f/1.8 aperture, its removable battery and its microSD card slot.

Early reviews of the G4 have been positive. It has an improved 5.5-inch, 1440p display, a laser-guided 16 megapixel camera, is powered by a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor and incorporates genuine leather into its design.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
