It seems that the T-Mobile JUMP Program has its use. I have been paying the 10 dollar a month fee for the last year and a half and went thru three phones during that time. I went from a Sony Xperia Z1S to a Z3 and now I am going to LG for the first time after using HTC and Samsung in the past.
The LG G4 is on sale with T-Mobile until the end of July for a real nice price of 479.76 which was around the same price I still owed on the Xperia Z3 which made it a no-brainer for me to consider the upgrade.
There are a few things I was giving up from going to this phone, but it was worth the risk. The Z3 has a bigger battery and the build quality was more glass and metal compared to the LG G4 plastic body and 10% less battery capacity. G4 does not have the water resistance as most recent Xperia phones, so be careful with water getting on your phone.
The LG G4’s newest trend is leather back covers. With T-Mobile they have the exclusive brown color while the other leading providers have a black leather cover. If you are a vegan or prefer not using leather you can use the plastic cover. The covers are nice I like how the brown one fits with my phone.
The phone also has real good resolution and just like Samsung and Sony they are also into the screen technology as used in monitors and television screens.The screen resolution eclipses the iPhone 6 Plus.
I may not like how the speakers are placed in the back, but if you care deeply about sound I would recommend headphones or a good Bluetooth speaker.
I wish T-Mobile restrained themselves with their own software baked in with the operating system. Mobile money should be an optional feature that users could uninstall with no problem. Also Google is increasing the number of apps baked in the operating system such as Google’s word processor. Forced applications will make people want to consider either Apple or using One Plus as their next phone.
I am liking some of the added features such as knocking on the screen to turn it off or on. The volume switch and power switch on the back of the phone will take some getting used to, but I am basically content with my new phone.
