LG G3: What we want from the G4

LG has impressed us with both the LG G2 and the G3 and although we have little complaint, here's what we want to see from the LG G4. Are you listening, LG? See also: 32 best smartphones: The best phone you can buy in 2014.

The LG G3 has shot to the top of our best smartphones chart thanks to its Quad HD screen, excellent design, affordable price and plenty more. The handset isn't even in the shops yet but we're already looking forward to what the LG G3 has in store. See how to get an LG G4 before launch.

LG G4: New Android

This one should be easy for LG but we want the LG G4 to come with a new version of Android – whether it's 4.5 or 5.0 Lollipop. It's likely that Google will launch this by the time LG releases the G4 so it's not only something we want, but something we expect.

LG G4: 64-bit

LG opted for a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor for the G3 which is clocked higher than other at 2.5GHz. For the G4 we want the next big thing in mobile chips, and that's 64-bit. The iPhone 5s already has it so we're waiting for the technology to come to Android.

It seems likely that Lollipop will support 64-bit and Qualcomm has already announced the Snapdragon 810 and 805 which are both 64-bit processors.

LG G4: Waterproof design

LG is one of the firms to not bother with dust- and waterproof design credentials, insisting that it's not really that useful for consumers. However, we've found it a brilliant feature on phones like the Sony Xperia Z2.

Not having to worry about your phone in the bathroom or kitchen is a real boon and there's no denying that shooting photo and video underwater is cool. Add it to the G4 please, LG.

LG G4: Battery life

We say this about every smartphone which hits the market but we still want better battery life from a smartphone. Yes, it is a effectively a PC in your hand but we long for the old days where a phone would last weeks before needing to be plugged into the wall.

The LG G3 does well to last as long as it does on a regular size battery with that large Quad HD screen but hopefully the firm can make a real step forward in the area with the G4.

LG G4: Cheap price

LG has done so well in the smartphone market with flagship device partly down to its pricing model. Rather than making no profit on hardware like Google, LG has made sure to undercut its rivals including HTC, Sony and Samsung with both the G2 and G3. Keep up the good work here, LG.
