LG have announced a new device to add to the G4 family and goes by the name of the LG G4 Beat. Basically it is an affordable LG G4 which has yet to been seen here in Ireland in Retail buy can be bought from online sellers of if you fancy a trip to PC WORLD you can pick one up there but it will cost you a packet.One good thing I guess you can go in a see the device before you buy it which is always a good idea..

The LG G4 has not come without its problems though with reports of bad battery and flaking leather covers but these are more sporadic cases than widespread so keep this in mind,although leather is a nice feature it can be at time awkward to maintain it..
