Street Shots of Siglap Singapore

Sometimes you find inspiration in the smallest and simplest things. It could be during your journey to school or work, a song you heard on the radio, basically anything you experience in you daily routine has the potential to inspire you.

For me, the past few days while I was out looking for dinner it suddenly dawned on me that I have not really photographed my neighbourhood and its people. People who always claim they have wanderlust (myself included) usually tend to forget how precious are the things closest to them which over time have come to taken for granted....

So I took my new camera for a little stroll through the neighbourhood I call home....

Furniture shop

Sometimes we just need to kick back relax and watch the world pass by. Simple things like this has become a luxury many of us cannot afford in this day and age where work has become our ball and chain in life... Well not unless you become your own boss .... For example the boss of your own furniture shop.. 





Corner Seat

Having meals alone is not an uncommon thing nowadays. Its not that we can't find someone to accompany us while we chow down our undercooked,msg laden meals. But some of us sincerely wish to take some time of our day to sit down and collect our thoughts and watch the world pass us by.





Evening hangouts at the coffee shop

Contrary to popular millennial belief, there was a time before coffee bean and Starbucks.





Scraps.. 


Foraging for whatever useful things that others discarded. Classic example of one man's meat is another's poison.





Muslim Restaurant

Well last night's dinner crowd wasn't that spectacular. But the food was good though!

Overall Review of the LG G4

Overall Review of the LG G4

“See the Great, Feel the Great”.






THE OVERVIEW

Having used the LG G4 for the last 2 weeks, I would like to say that my experience with it has been rather surprising. Features like the vibrant and bright Quad HD display and the new f1.8 aperture 16 MP cameras has been a joy to use. Software features like the voice and hand gestured activated shutter release I found to be pretty useful especially for those selfie moments.

There are some quirks such as less than stellar battery life and the metallic unit that I reviewed didn’t really feel that great in hand. However the G4 features removable batteries and premium leather back covers which helps with these issues.



THE MAIN ATTRACTION

This has to obviously go to the 16MP rear camera of the LG G4. Images have been sharp and crisp, color accurate and offers a good depth of field for those “bokeh” shots. For those who want to be more creative, the G4 offers full manual control of the camera including ISO, shutter speed and focus. Definitely a treat for those photography enthusiasts like myself.



THE FAVORITE

So you have taken a bunch of awesome pictures, but what makes them truly POP would be the bright and vibrant Quad HD display on the G4. Content on a smartphone never looked so good and was definitely my favorite feature of the LG G4.



THE ROUND UP

So to sum up, would I recommend this phone?
IF you love photography, IF you love the option of having swappable batteries and additional storage and IF you like a phone with a customizable back cover to suit your personality, then 100% yes you absolutely have to give the LG G4 a look.

Try it to believe it.
