Comparison test: LG G4 VS UMi Plus

LG G4 vs UMi more: design and finish

for this comparison, we decided to opt for the version of the LG G4 leather version. The differences in design between the two devices are important, and they could help you make your decision. Devices have a completely different form, but the more UMi is more end.

overall, the UMi is a little bigger than the LG G4 (155 x 75 x 8.8 mm against 148.9 x 76.7 x 9.8 mm). However, when you put them side by side, one realizes that the more UMi is more end. Hand use is also very nice for both, but a preference emerges for the Chinese smartphone.

home buttons are placed at different locations according to the device. LG G4 is in the back, which makes it easier to support if we got him in the hand. But if you have your smartphone on a flat surface, the UMi more is best. The Home button is both capacitive and physical, and we can choose the method to access. The UMi also includes a fingerprint reader, which is not present in the LG G4.

the preference for the design and usability of these two phones is a matter of taste, but there is no doubt that the more UMi made more modern and approximates the current high-end standards. The glass surface fits harmoniously with the metal.

LG G4 vs UMi more: quality screen

phablets have two screens of quality which should be able to satisfy you. The LG G4 is equipped with a screen LCD of 5.5 inches with QHD (1440 x 2560 pixels) definition, either a pixel density of 538 ppp. It’s quite impressive and indicative of LG devices in general. The UMi Plus has a 5.5 inch Full-HD screen and a definition of 1920 x 1080 pixels (401 ppp).

Each of these phablets has rich colors and screens which have good brightness. The LG G4 offers a better definition, but really need to watch the screen more closely to see.

LG G4 vs UMi more: audio quality

two UMi more speakers are on the bottom of the unit. In terms of audio rendering, it’s a clear compared to the LG G4 advantage since we have a stereo rendering.

LG G4 vs UMi more: performance

in terms of performance, it’s hard to make the distinction between the LG G4 and the UMi Plus. Benchmarks of AnTuTu had almost similar results and the experience of daily use was similar between the two devices. But there are also a few differences.

Download UMi over speed is much faster than on the LG G4. On average, applications themselves are downloaded about 25% faster over UMi on my South Korean counterpart. And that makes the difference when we know how many applications, images or videos can be downloaded within a month.

speaking of downloading, two phablets have an internal memory of 32 GB, with option to extend memory up to 256 GB. 

In the bowels, the LG G4 embarked a hexacore 808 Snapdragon processor and 3 GB of RAM. As UMi, for its part, turns on a processor octacore Helio P10 and 4 GB of RAM. Benchmarks for both devices are available below, and both are neck-to-neck. Only 2000 points separate the two, which is very minor. But it should be noted the OnePlus 3 had 90 000 points more on its benchmark than the two devices.

LG G4 vs UMi more: autonomy

the LG G4 battery was one of our biggest disappointments in our tests. With a power of 3000 mAh, it has a lower performance compared to the 4000 mAh included that of the UMi more. During our tests, the LG G4 has only managed to have 18 hours of battery life in normal use while the Umi more held almost 29 hours.

It is all the more impressive when taking into account the extra gigabyte of RAM over UMi. And the reloading of the unit of the firm UMi has proved to be much faster with the USB Type-C cable and adapter. Even with a Quick Charge technology and a less powerful battery, LG G4 was lagging in loading.

The only asset of the LG G4, is that its battery is removable, contraiement at the UMi. So, when your G4 is weak, you can always replace it with another battery, for about € 15.
