Honestly, I'm excited for the phone! I used to have a massive Battle Station for video recording, an with the death of my GPU I'm hoping this device will prove a sufficient replacement!

I am just giving my opinion, based on facts provided in the phone reviews of the reputable and professional reviewers like "verge" for example. Sorry if you did not like to hear these negative facts about Sony.
If you love Sony (for whoever says his bro is a top official in Sony HQ) take your Sony and scram to the Sony phones opinion thread. If you like samsung, take it and scram to the Samsung phone opinion thread. I've read a lot of what you all have typed here now clap for yourselves and scram, quit littering the opinion thread of this solid one of a kind reliable phone with stories bout yo sony,Samsung,yo bro in Sony hq or maybe yo uncle...
Now beat it!

With a second screen and large resolution, I don't expect this phone to last you all day off a full charge. Maybe 4-5 hours of on-screen time (and I am being generous). Add to the fact that it is heavy and you got yourself a failure of a phone.
Don't get me wrong, by the way, I like LG products and just wish LG would not create gimmicks in their phones like Samsungs "Edge" screen.

"Sony again finds itself in the unenviable position of shipping an Android flagship without the latest software, but given how mature the operating system is, that shouldnÂ’t preclude a fast and enjoyable user experience. After all, IÂ’d rather have an awesomely speedy Android 5.1 than a buggy and unpolished 6.0. Regrettably, Sony has combined the worst of both worlds, delivering sluggish responsiveness on software that should really be smooth as butter by now. Google literally had an initiative called Project Butter designed to address this very issue. And yet, years later, Sony is releasing flagship devices with stuttery animations, epic app-loading delays, and a general sense of friction where there should be smooth and fluid interactions".
Also I am giving to you comparison of phone dimensions between LG G2 and Sony Z5 as both have the same screen size of 5.2 inch:
Sony Z5 = 146 x 72 x 7.3 mm (5.75 x 2.83 x 0.29 in);
LG G2 = 138.5 x 70.9 x 8.9 mm (5.45 x 2.79 x 0.35 in);
It means 7.5 mm difference in height between Z5 and G2 for the same screen size. That's ridiculous from Sony. Sony's Screen to body ratio was always a disaster e.g. Z5 = 69.6% vs. G2 = 75.9%.
Super phone but bad chipset, SD808 weaker than Mediatek octa core chipset, expensive for such a thing.

wait for the price to drop to around USD 400, then it will be great...
Good phone but why is LG always making their best phones so big and heavy...if i wanted extra large screen i would buy a tablet. So i bought the brilliant S6 Edge.
Got my G4 last week when an online store offered a discount. Can't find the nice feeling when holding G2 in G4. Something just missing and somehow I like G2 better. Guess the specs isn't the main reason to buy a phone.
The nice feeling when holding a phone, when typing the keyboard and better battery life, I guess, is the main reason.
Specs is important but it comes 2nd for me.
If only LG 'remake' G2 with a little touch here and there, I'd like to get one and sell my G4.
