Although the G4c and G4 Stylus are variants of the flagship G4, they will have the similar UI- User Interface- to that of the G4. The variant models will have the feature of Knock Code, which will enable the user to unlock the Smartphone by simply tapping a unique, personalized “knock” pattern on the screen. Another thoughtful feature is Gesture Shot, which allows the shutter to start a three second countdown when the camera opens and closes a hand in front of the lens. Another good feature that will also save phone battery is Glance View which will show the user the notifications on the display even when it is turned off. These minor yet significant changes in the UI are bound to appeal to users who prefer to operate Smartphones that are actually smart!
