In its line of G4 South Korean electronics giant LG has presented more than one model. It entered the market a number of devices under the same name but with different model numbers. One of them was the LG G4 Stylus Dual H540 Titan. The device produced in the form factor PHABLET and equipped with HD-screen with a resolution of just 1280×720 pixels. Iron smartphone also can not be called the flagship, but his class, he is consistent. At the time of writing the cost of the device, which was released in July 2015 amounted to about $ 300.
The device received the design, reminiscent of that of the eponymous flagship, but plastic, textured under the metal replaces the natural leather. The device does not look cheap: gray plastic looks stylish, and rounded shapes on the back plane of the supplement form. It fits well into the exterior devaysa and corporate control on the back cover (for volume adjustment and locking device), located near the camera.
The main feature of LG G4 Stylus was the presence of the stylus, which allows high-precision work with the screen. This, and the presence of eight-processor, greatly complicates the positioning device. After all, the smartphone has become an unusual example of a combination of flagship and low cost features in a single device.
The smartphone has, though not the flagship, but the best toppings, on the one hand, but on the other – in the pursuit of savings manufacturer was unable to hold the balance of iron configurations.
CPU LG G4 Stylus
If the judge for the LG G4 Stylus processor – you might think that this is the flagship device. After all, eight cores at 1.4 GHz (even from the MTK), look in the “middling” quite profitable. The smartphone has good performance and is gaining in “Antutu” a little over 30 thousand points, which today is at least and not a record, but a good result. Mali 450 MP4 GPU provides a good gaming performance, so that this part of the LG G4 Stylus is really good.
Memory LG G4 Stylus
But the volume of LG G4 Stylus RAM, processor background, look at all like a ridiculous misunderstanding. Agree to equip the eight-unit one gigabyte of RAM – is how to install the engine on the “Mercedes” in the little old “Lada”. In comparison with counterparts in the original equipment, such car will Bole quick and passable, but the features of the body and the chassis will not be allowed to use the full potential of the power plant. So here: powerful CPU limited amount of RAM, can not show all the ability.
The internal memory in the device is also sparse: 8 GB available just over 3. So without buying cards for 16 or 32 GB will be able to do a few, who are not interested in games and used to listen to music and watch movies online only.
Battery LG G4 Stylus
The battery in the LG G4 Stylus is quite typical for most PHABLET. 3000 mAh battery will last for 7 – 8 hours of video playback or web surfing, 2 days of standby time or 10 – 12 hours of reading books. In general, it is normal for mid-level PHABLET.
Camera LG G4 Stylus
The main camera in LG G4 Stylus different low resolution: a total of 8 MP. At the same time, the presence of the laser autofocus, flash settings and allows you to get a heap of good shots, so that its resolution camera photographs not even passable, as well.
Front-end module 5 MP satisfy not only those who frequently conducts a video conference in the “Skype” and other applications, but fans selfie. Because the frames are obtained really good. Of course, there is noise, sharpness sometimes lame, but does not suffer from this professional camera, and not mobile phones.
Display LG G4 Stylus
Like RAM, LG G4 Stylus screen looks a little weak. No, the picture is good, it does not suffer any small viewing angles or brightness deficiency or unnatural color reproduction – it’s all on the level. But a resolution of 1280×720 for the display on the 5.7 “seems not enough. Fastidious users, even with 5” HD see individual pixels (which, according to the review authors, or a sign of “sniper” view, or just spoiled technologies), but 5.7 “such a resolution giving only 260 dots per inch, which is slightly below the “retina” threshold (300 – 350 PPI).
On the other hand – place the Koreans here FullHD or even a QHD screen – indignation about the brakes because of gigabytes of RAM they can not be avoided in any way. So what about the amount of RAM the resolution just balanced.
Communication LG G4 Stylus
Slots for SIM cards in the smartphone two, both have MicroSIM size. Unlike older models, LG G4 Stylus deprived LTE support. It can only work in GSM and 3G networks. Of course, there is a version of this PHABLET and with the support of high-speed fourth-generation communication, but it is equipped with a quad-core Qualcomm processor and has a different index, so our review is merely mediocre attitude.
Multimedia LG G4 Stylus
Musical speaker LG G4 Stylus has a sufficiently large supply volume, and has good study of the entire frequency range. Of course, a full-sized smart player will not replace, but against overly “dry” speakers of other devices, it looks profitable.
On the video playback from the device problems either. Movies in HD are played without delay, the picture looks fine, especially at a distance of 50 cm or more from the eyes.
Operating system LG G4 Stylus
Functions LG G4 Stylus 5 running Android, aka Lolipop. Branded LG shell interface makes the device different from other smartphones based on this system, but you can not call it overloaded. The balance of functionality and performance to the manufacturer it is able to achieve.

Our review LG G4 Stylus Dual H540 Titan
According to survey results, we can say that the LG G4 Stylus Dual H540 Titan was quite controversial device. On the one hand, the “chips” like 8 cores, brand pen, high-quality implementation of multimedia features, allow you to compare the device with the flagships, such as the G4 or Samsung Note 4 and 5. “high-grade” But only one gigabyte of RAM, 3 GB of available internal memory and low screen (for their diagonal) resolution look ridiculous. For example, in the same LG display the same parameters (but with reduced size, it becomes a plus for HD) and RAM have Spirit and Magna of model, which will cost about half the price of the buyer.
