Many ppl still enjoy music fr their pH FM radio.The 1st thing I check while buying pH is this feature.It is free ! Why NOT ? Luv music fr 60,70 & 80 !
Previous generation of DAB mobile phone uses telescopic antenna for DAB reception. I guess this LG uses the earpiece cable just like FM? No one will accept a telescopic antenna sticking out of the phone nowadays, but then reception is a big concern.

If Norway (and probably other countries) isnt killing FM broadcasts then LG or whoever manufacturer wud that be wouldn't be jumping into DAB+. Yeah, keep on trolling Norway.
I hope more phones will start supporting DAB+ radio. It is 2016 after all.
I love everything about this phone (especially volume/power buttons, screen size and DAB) except 2 things :
- 720P !!! - are you kidding? 1080P is the minimum in 2016
- 1.5Gb Ram - are you kidding ? 2Gb is the minimum in 2016
FIX it LG because your LGG5 is not going to sell well in 2016!!!!

As for compatibility, by belief is that DAB+ hardware is backward compatible with DAB streams (which the UK uses), but DAB hardware is not (or upgradable to be made) compatible with DAB+ streams.

Is it uk DAB compatible? If so mine will hardly be off bbc 6 music!

You obviously have a strange idea how DAB radio works. It's just standard radio, gone digital. We're not talking streaming services or the like here, so I have no idea where you get the "listen to whatever i want" from.
nice phone when i look at this one... it is like seeing lg G2 on back and almost similar front .... it could be an advise from them ... that they could update out evice to 6.0 who knows ....
