LG Electronics (LG) today announced that its newest mobile user interface, LG UX 4.0, will be featured on the upcoming LG G4 to be unveiled at the end of the month. The upgraded user experience promises to be simpler and more intuitive and will better understand and respond to the needs of each user.

Until now UX enhancements were focused on giving greater ease to all users. With LG UX 4.0 its more improved and natural ease to every person at every level for best enjoyment of their LG device
Similer and More Intuitive to Use
LG has created a smoother user experience by keeping design simple and removing redundancy. Quick Shot allows to take pictures even when display is off by pressing a key at the Rear. Smart Bulletin auto-combines important information from many apps onto one page.
A Wider Range of Specialized Choices
UX 4.0 also gives users a wider range of options based on their own preferences and interests. The new camera offers three user modes — Simple, Basic and Manual — to meet the needs of all types of photographers, from amateurs to experts. Simple Mode does all the hard work automatically and still delivers great photos. Manual Mode features a suite of modules and options for full creative control that would impress even the most experienced photographer.
The improved calendar also offers more choices by giving users the ability to select and organize individual events posted in social media accounts by simply dragging and dropping appointments. The new calendar allows you to get more done with less typing by simply touching and gesturing.
Smarter UX That Understands You
The improved Smart Notice on LG UX 4.0 promises to provide more personalized notifications for weather, travel and more by analyzing a user’s daily routine and travel schedule and combining this information with the user’s lifestyle habits. A user who enjoys a game of hoops may receive a notification that says, “The weather will be mostly sunny today. It’s the perfect weather to get out and play basketball.”
Another example of greater customization in LG UX 4.0 can be seen in the Gallery, which can create event-specific albums based on the location and time each photo was taken. This intelligent customization goes even further with the Ringtone ID, which automatically composes a unique ringtone for every caller in the user’s favorite contact list.
“LG UX 4.0 offers simpler, faster and more intuitive ways to use the G4 with both new and improved features that intelligently accommodate each individual user.We will continue to better understand our customers so we can continue delivering innovations for a better life through our human-centric approach,” said Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.
