The LG G4 Beat is basically a smaller and cheaper version of the flagship G4. 

The LG G4 is a flagship phone that banners the Korean brand with flying colors. If you had a G4 in your hands life was definitely good. More on the phablet size however, the phone delivers no non-sense power that everyday users yearn for. The 5.5-inch screen phablet is packing a six core Qualcomm Snapdragon Processor underneath and only weighs at only 155 grams and comes with an awesome camera. Now what could dissuade from people purchasing this awesome phone/tablet/whatever is of course the price. No flagship can’t possibly come cheap, right? Now this is where the G4 Beat comes in.

The LG G4 Beat is basically a smaller and cheaper version of the flagship G4. The splurge (if you wanna call it that) will only set you back around $400. It really does look identical to the G4 with rear buttons and all. The main difference is that the G4 can come with a leather finish variant while the G4 Beat is stuck with the ceramic plastic finish.

The G4 Beat comes with a a 5.2 inch IPS display that can clock in HD resolutions at 1920 x 1080 which is no small feat especially for ‘downsized model’. The phone runs on Android Lollipop 5.1 and also posseses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 Processor. It does scream mid-range but c’mon that’s why you aren’t considering the full-fledged G4 right? 

If you are after the camera, it has an 8MP main camera and a 5MP front camera. The phone’s camera features a laser autofocus sensor and a color spectrum sensor, which help you capture more vibrant photos.

The G4 Beat will come in in three colors: metallic silver, ceramic white, and shiny gold. At least those hue don’t scream midrange but more executive-y.
