The LG G4 is one of the best smartphones around, but did you know it’s good enough to break Guinness world records? They did so on June 13th, when they beat the world record for the “world’s longest selfie relay chain”, smoking past a record that was previously set in the USA.
LG was able to accomplish this with the help of over 2500 people from Mexico’s capital – Mexico City. The event took place last June 13th at the Chapultepec Castle, a historic building which currently serves as the National Museum of History. 746 selfies were taken in a period of two hours, whereas the last record was at 531 with the Galaxy A3 and A5. It’s calculated that LG’s phone took a photo every 10 seconds during this period of time.
This may seem like a meaningless event to some, but it does demonstrate the capabilities the LG G4 has under its arm. This phone happens to sport an awesome 8 MP front-facing camera, which is alleged to be among the best in the market.
LG also touts that the G4 was able to go through this whole process without needing a recharge or a battery swap. In fact, they claim the device still had plenty of energy to go around at the end, but they “ran out of people”. Seems odd for a city with one of the highest population margins in the world, housing about 9 million inhabitants. That’s still an accomplishment, though. I am nearly sure the Samsung Galaxy S6 would have died (this thing dies so fast!)
The phone sure isn’t perfect, but we didn’t have many bad things to say about it in our LG G4 review. It’s really no wonder LG decided to use this phone to accomplish such feat. Which phone will beat the LG G4’s record? We can only wait and see, but maybe we can make some speculations in the comments below!
