Are you looking for the hottest, most up to date smartphone on the market? Who isn't, right? If not for yourself, I am sure there is a very special father in your life that would love an incredible new smartphone this Father's Day.
In any case, there is only one smartphone you should be considering, and it is the LG G4. I had the pleasure of checking this incredible phone out at my local Best Buy. Actually it was almost a displeasure, because it just made me realize how inferior my current phone is. That's right, I got a major case of phone envy.
The LG G4 is the coolest phone I have ever seen, and I am not exaggerating. There are many features that make the new LG G4 stand out from the pack, but the most distinctive superiorities are in the camera, the display and the design.
The curved design that ergonomically fits the palm of your hand is wonderful. I've always found it odd holding on to a flat rectangle. It is not only functional physically, thanks to the Upgradable memory up to 2TB with micro SD card and a replaceable high capacity 3,000mAh battery. With features like that, the premium style of genuine leather, metallic and ceramic style back covers is just icing on the cake.
The cutting edge 5.5" IPS Quantum Display ensures an outstanding visual experience. The 25% brighter display along with a 50% improvement in contrast for richer images makes for enhanced viewing in various lighting conditions. Quad HD resolution with 538 PPI ensures incredible detail. It's all in the details after all.
As impressive as all the design and display features are, the most important aspect, to me personally, is the camera. As a blogger it is part of my job to take high quality photos, and sometimes all I have for a camera is my phone. Also, as a mother, I want to be able to capture any special moment in my family's life, even when my DSLR is at home. A high quality camera is essential.
The LG G4 must have known that, which is why their camera is so impressive. The camera boasts f/1.8 aperture for impressive performance in low light situations. This is so great for me as I often attend events and such where the lighting is very poor. It has a manual mode with 15 settings and over 135 options for great control over how photos are captured. I really love the improved Laser Auto Focus so I can always be ready to capture the moment.
While I am not much of a selfie queen, I love the 8MP front facing camera, so that if I decide to take a selfie, I don't look like total garbage. I am more excited about the 16MP rear facing camera so the pictures I take of everything else look fantastic. That's also why I adore the improved Optical Image Stabilization which steadies the shot for sharp, focused images. I always have a hard time steadying on my own and other stabilizers seem so ineffective. I am super interested in the RAW image file capture, since that produces the highest possible image quality. I have never worked with RAW files before, but I have been wanted to. This camera blows all other smartphone cameras out of the water, and even puts digital and SLR cameras on notice.
As phenomenal as the LG G4 smartphone is, it is easy to neglect thoughts of anything else, like the price for example. Obviously, a brand new smartphone with all the latest features is not going to be a drop in the bucket, but it is an investment and it is completely worth it. Especially when you get it from Best Buy, since they have the best price.
Best Buy is generously offering a Guaranteed $100 Best Buy® Gift Card when you purchase the LG G4. This incredible offer is valid on the LG G4 Release Date of 6/13/15.

If you still cannot be sure about the LG G4, I suggest you head to your local Best Buy and check it out. Not only will you be able to see the LG G4 up close and discover what makes it so wonderful, but you will have access to Best Buy associates, who are always friendly and knowledgeable.
