LG is making some great improvements in smart phone making with its G series smart phone. LG G4 is one of the best premium smart phones in today’s smart phone market. LG G4 is a premium device whose back is made from a self-healing material which can heal some small scratches by itself using the heat from battery, processor and other hardware (still users complaining about scratches). Coming to the specs, this phone has a large 5.5 inch QHD IPS LCD display with corning Gorilla glass 3 protection, a hexa-core processor consist of a 1.44 GHz quad-core processor and a 1.8 GHz dual core processor which gives fast computing and better multitasking performance.

LG G4 comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop and up gradable to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. LG Optimus UX looks good but when comes to performance and smoothness it is known to lag more than one would hope. Floating window functionality has enough lag with it that you can count the frames per second during the dragging of the floating windows. If you also found these drawbacks of LG Optimus UX then you are at the right place today, here you will get to know about some custom ROMs which don’t only look good but also deliver better performance.
