If you ran a staff poll about the best smartphone to buy at the moment, there’s a pretty good chance that LG’s brand new G4 would come out on top. Some would pick it for the massive screen crammed into a reasonably sized body, others for its excellent camera and yet more for the fact that it’s nigh on the last remaining smartphone with a removable battery. More yet would just say that it’s the best designed phone out there.

Which is why we’re very excited to have teamed up with LG to give one away for free. We’ve got one phone and a rather natty leather satchel to go with it, which together are worth over R12 000.

From the design to the camera to the display to the user interface, the new LG G4 gives consumers a truly human-centric device that combines analogue sensibilities with technologies that delivers real world performance as well as a visual experience like no other smart phone. The G4 has a beautiful sense of elegance and humanity as well as a durable curved design dubbed ‘Slim Arc’ by the manufacturer. This stunning and ergonomic curvature is optimised for humans to have a better smartphone experience.

What’s unique about this Slim Arc design is that it runs along G4’s entire body, which is more than a beautiful accent. It’s more than just an attractive adornment; it also naturally fits the contours of the human body and is exceptionally stable when you hold it in one hand. Moreover, it offers about 20% more durability in comparison to a flat smartphone in the case of face-down drops.
