The big-ticket item, of course, is that the G4 uses the Snapdragon 808 processor instead of the 810, which has already been used in the LG G Flex 2. The explanation, LG tells us, is that the 808 has been "specially tuned" for the G4. That's a little bit of a line (processors generally aren't slapped into a phone without some sort of customization), but it's also not all that surprising to see given what we've experienced with the 810 thus far.
So the big difference here is instead of four high-powered A57 cores and four low-power A53 cores, we've got half as many A57's. We'll have to see how it works out.
