Hands on with the LG G4: Hot leather, sweet camera



We’ve seen plenty of new Android phones since the start of the year, and now comes time for LG’s big move: the launch of its much-leaked new flagship, the LG G4.

Samsung grabbed big headlines when it released the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge — its best smartphones ever — so LG has its work cut out for it if the company wants to stand out.
