How to Install New Applications?

After you root your phone, connect to the internet via Wi-Fi, and go to the XDA-Developers forum. Search for the thread with LG G4 apps, and select the application you want to install. Download the zip file for every application, and then extract the files. You will probably be asked to restart your smartphone, and after that you will have all the new applications.
Should you install?
Before installing the new apps from the LG G4 eco system, it is worth noting that such change must affect your phone’s performances. The apps are made for a G4, not for a LG G3 model. This might result in slower performances, and some applications might not work on your G3. The reason is that the apps are not fully optimized for other devices. They are optimized for a G4 model. However, if you like to give your G3 a fresh look, go ahead and try the new applications.
