LG's G4 gets Marshmallow. Three reasons why you'll love it

Soon after launching its lovable Nexus 5X with Android Marshmallow, LG is bringing Google's latest Android OS to G4, its existing flagship device, thus combining the best of specs with the latest software available anywhere in the world.

Since Nexus 5X is a few days away from arriving at your doorsteps, you will be the first to enjoy Marshmallow if you already own a G4 or are planning to buy one now.

Here are some reasons why the 'Marshmallowed' G4 will not only be the best camera phone but also among the best devices in terms of usage and performance.

 

Better battery life

Marshmallow will let you send your G4 into a deep sleep through the Doze Mode when you aren't planning on using it. When this mode is activated, your G4 will close down battery sapping activities like automatic app updates and searching for mails. The G4 will also shut down open apps and their background processing to save some juice.


App permissions

Once you've installed Marshmallow in your G4, you will be able to download apps without having to concede access to your privacy features like photos, contacts, microphone or your location.

Such permissions will be required by apps only at the time of use, thus preserving your privacy and battery life for as long as you want.


Silent features

Are you tired of the constant beeping and ringing of your phone? You won't be anymore. Android Marshmallow is bringing in new features which will let you silence sounds and vibrations as and when required. A new Do Not Disturb feature will also let you block all sounds or only alarms and notifications.


LG will soon announce when and in which countries Android Marshmallow will be available for G4 devices. Just in case you're planning to buy one, G4 is a slightly curved smartphone with a leather-stitched back, a 16MP primary camera with a f/1.8 aperture, a 3,000 mAh removable battery, a Snapdragon 808 processor as well as pre-installed Google docs, sheets and slides.

If you buy a G4, you will also get 100GB worth free storage on Google Cloud for a period of two years. Prices start at £479.99 on Pay as you go.
