You’re probably used to seeing free phone offers all the time from wireless carriers, and by now you know how it works. You have to sign a contract with a mobile operator for a certain period of time, during which the cost of the phone will be baked into your wireless service plan.

LG finally unveiled its next-generation flagship Android phone on Tuesday morning, though the LG G4 really wasn’t much of a surprise going into yesterday’s press conference. As it has done in the past, LG released a series of “teasers” leading up to the event that weren’t really teasers at all, but instead bits and pieces of LG’s official announcement.

When Samsung announced the Galaxy S6 last month, it looked like every other Android smartphone vendor had missed the boat. After years of stagnation, the king of Android devices was returning with its sleekest, coolest, fastest smartphone ever, and other new phones paled in comparison.
All the while, LG was quiet — waiting for the right moment to pounce with one of the most technologically advanced smartphones the world has ever seen.
With the LG G4, it’s all about percentages. The F1.8 aperture lens allows 80% more light to reach the camera sensor. LG’s new 5.5-inch IPS Quantum Display brings 20 percent greater color reproduction, 25 percent improvement in brightness and 50 percent greater contrast than its closest competition.
