New LG G4 Smartphone Upgrades Camera and Adds Luxury

LG has just unveiled its newest smartphone, the LG G4.

The successor of the G3 is boasting some nice upgrades from it’s predecessor. A beefed up camera and real leather back are some of the changes customers can expect to see.

In fact, one of the biggest upgrades on the LG G4 from the previous model is the phone’s 16MP camera. LG claims the G4’s camera has a Color Spectrum Sensor (CSS) to improve color accuracy, shoots pictures in RAW (an alternative to JPEG), and has a F1.8 aperture lens to allow 80 percent more light to hit the image sensor.

To top it off, the LG G4 camera has manual control so more advanced photographers can control features such as shutter speed.

And, yes, the G4 will be featuring a genuine leather back that comes in six colors. LG says the leather exterior is hand-crafted and vegetable tanned to be environmentally friendly and easily recycled. If leather is not up your alley, there will also be three plastic options in Ceramic White, Metallic Grey, or Shiny Gold.

It is disappointing that these other options are not actually metal, though.

For “fashionable elegance,” as LG puts it, the G4 also features a subtle curvature for comfort and strength. LG claims the curved body offers 20 percent better durability from a face down drop than a flat smartphone. The curve is said to also offer a more comfortable hold.

The LG G4 has a 5.5 inch IPS Quantum display that LG claims is the first Quad HD display to employ Advanced In-Cell Touch technology. It also offers better color reproduction and touch sensitivity, the company says.

The LG G4 uses Android 5.1 OS, has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor with X10 LTE, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal memory. The G4 will also sport an expandable microSD slot for added storage. Google Office comes pre-installed and customers will receive an additional 100GB of Google Drive storage free for two years with purchase of the phone.

LG is rolling out its new smartphone today April 29, starting in Korea. However, the company has provided no pricing details for release in the west. Carrier availability and pricing is to be announced locally in each market. Rumor has it the LG G4 should be arriving in the U.S. sometime at the end of May or beginning of June.

The most recognizable landmark in Paris may be getting a makeover. The Eiffel Tower has been around since the late 1800’s. And while it’s still an iconic building, city officials in Paris feel that it could use a few updates.

The proposed changes would include adding security measures, improving the flow of tourists, upgrading elevators, paint, lights and more. Overall, it’s estimated that these upgrades will cost more than $300 million and will take about 15 years to complete.

That’s a major undertaking. But the city is reportedly interested in hosting the 2024 Summer Olympics. And if that’s the case, it might be necessary to add some value in the form of more practical features for the city’s most popular landmarks.

Sometimes, Change is Necessary

Old structures like the Eiffel Tower present a unique set of challenges to the cities or businesses that are charged with operating them. Changing the building completely would take away most, if not all, of the incentive for people to visit in the first place. But sometimes, change is necessary in order to keep those structures operating as they should in the modern age.

This concept is one that’s also relevant to a lot of businesses. Whether you’re actually operating an old tourist landmark or just have some old traditions that have helped your business succeed through the years, you need to find a way to mix the old and new in a way that makes sense for your business.
