The LG G4 has a lot to prove, given that last year’s LG G3 was among the best smartphones of 2014. The Global Mobile Awards given out during the time of MWC 2015 named it the Smartphone of The Year (SOTY?) alongside the iPhone 6, and at the time of its release it packed the very best in Android specifications, from the powerful Snapdragon 801 to the class-leading 1440p display.

RR33’s SenseLIKE Suite Part 2 Released
Back in September, XDA member RR33 released the first part of the SenseLIKE Suite for WVGA and VGA devices. Contained within it was a plethora of modifications for the original TouchFlo3D and the newer Sense 2.1 which allowed users of those applications to enjoy the aesthetic improvements of the newer releases of Manila without sacrificing performance, or having to flash a custom ROM. Additionally, users who just couldn’t get enough of the recognisable look of the Android version of HTC Sense could have it integrated into various aspects of the OS that would otherwise appear dull.
The Suite included skins for the default Windows Mobile and Tachi dialers along with an Android-themed boot animation, retouched slider icons and, most interestingly, an array of redesigned clocks for the Home tab.
Recently, RR33 has released the follow up to his original suite. The new set includes skins supporting the dialers found in newer devices such as the HD2 and the Touch Pro2, while also expanding upon the choice of customised clocks. Variations include a clock with the Union Flag as a background, a wood grain effect and a soft blue glow as well. Also updated, are the customised sliders and slider icons, which help bring a brighter appearance to the Manila interface.
Part 2 of the Suite can be found in the suite’s thread.
