    Calendar: Event Pocket is clever. Folds in local locations and social feeds into calendar.

    G4 users can log into the phone with their Google ID instead of an LG one.

    It's all part of LG's push to make a simpler phone without as much bloatware.

    G4 aiming for a Nexus-type experience, without being a Nexus phone. Google apps all pre-installed and emphasized.

    LG G4 owners who are Volkswagon drivers can take advantage of MirrorLink feature, Lee says.

    When we made our new smartphone, we put you at the center of our experience, he says.

    Lee says the "Life's Good" slogan as he begins to wrap things up.

    And with that, cue another video, this time less hype and more quiet emotion (lots of slow music and talk about feelings).
  • Scott Stein 4/28/2015 3:40:52 PM
    Back to the gleaming sparkle-light video.
  • Roger Cheng 4/28/2015 3:41:07 PM
    Everyone give each other a hug...
  • Scott Stein 4/28/2015 3:41:10 PM
    I can't stand this "human-centric UX" slogan.
  • Roger Cheng 4/28/2015 3:41:37 PM
    The new tagline is "See the great, feel the great." What do you think.
  • Scott Stein 4/28/2015 3:41:38 PM
    very excited about possibilities of the G4 camera and new display, though.
  • Roger Cheng 4/28/2015 3:41:54 PM
    And with that, the presentation is over. Lee asks everyone to check out the G4 themselves.
  • Scott Stein 4/28/2015 3:41:54 PM
    There was a lot of weird declaration of emotions in that video.
  • Roger Cheng 4/28/2015 3:42:05 PM
    And with that, the G4 event is over.
  • Sarah Tew 4/28/2015 3:42:05 PM
  • Scott Stein 4/28/2015 3:42:20 PM
    OK, off to play with G4. (p.s. I did that already. Stay tuned for impressions.)
  • Scott Stein 4/28/2015 3:43:01 PM
    I'll be on Twitter at @jetscott with some photos from the event.
