The LG Quick Circle is innovative LG flip cover case which was first sold in together with the release of LG G3 in 2014. Since then, every flagship phone always has it’s own quick circle case, including the LG G4. This exclusive case may be intentionally made to be able to compete with Samsung’s S-View flip cover, but with its original circle cut at the front. As an official accessory, the price is also quite high, $49.99.
This flip cover comes with a quick circle app that allows you to make use of some apps right from the window, without opening the case. Some apps that you can run are camera to take pictures, LG Health, Music for playing music, call logs, App Market and Settings. It also can wake up the device when you open the flip cover. The default app functionality is limited as it only supports basic functionality. Fortunately, LG allows developers to build their own custom app that is compatible with the quick circle case.
Now we can see some quick circle apps available on the Google Play Store. Some of which have specific features such as allow you to play Spotify or trigger torch feature. But there’s also an app that has many features in a single installation.
