Well depending on your environment and nearness to the market, you might come across the LG G4 at the ranging price of about #126,000 ($634) That’s quiet huge. Well the price already covers shipping and tax with importation tariffs. (Price in Nigeria varies from country to country.)

But the device is quiet expensive but LG gives a true value to the good making it irresistible and sexy while being held. The new LG G4 is a device to watch out for in the year 2015.
