Huawei Mate 10 could have the fastest fingerprint and fastest phone of the year. But over all best phone could go to LG V30 or Galaxy Note 8 or iPhone 8. The competition of 2nd flagship phones of the year will be so tight esp. As they are all going the same display ratio. I call it "THE BATTLE OF THE TITANS".
indeed this phone seems very promising. it seems to have the title of the phablet of the year 2017
Anonymous, 14 Jul 2017Removable batteries are useless on non smartphone, never used them there.
Removable batteri... moreNot really. Nokia Symbians benefitted from removable batteries. Me and my friends even had 3 each at one time.
Because of actual heavy use. Not the light usage passed off by Samsung users as heavy use on their phones.
Anonymous, 14 Jul 2017Right, Still using my LG G2 no issues.Just but a new battery for mine after pulling off back cover with my fingernail and throwing away rhe old battery. And higher capacity microsd card as well.
mir, 14 Jul 2017The LG G2 had a sealed battery. You rarely had people complain about that though.But my non US LG G2 had removable battery and expandable storage lol.

Lithium batteries are consumables. Sealing them in is forcing you to upgrade often, or hope that the manufacturer still repairs an old phone. It binds you. Also you lose infinite autonomy (keeping spares in your car , or wallet means you never get in situation without battery life)
The Only, 13 Jul 2017If it is removeable battery smartphone, no water-resistance then.S5 had both.
That's a false myth.

Removable batteries only make sense to something that last 5-6 hours (like most smartphone) and is indispensable to you (my phone is my main computer), so losing uptime would be disastrous.
Removable batteries were useless up until 2011, they still are to devices like the one you referenced. Every invention has its use if you misuse it it's the same as if it never existed.
Ie tour suggestion is terrible. Never suggest a device with removable battery when said device is not indispensable. It makes it unnecessary bulky (seriously if the battery was sealed, said product would had been much smaller) without giving anything of importance.
Removable batteries on portable computers removes downtimes (either due to dead battery, or charging). It completely solves autonomy. Never buy a phone/computer with autonomy issues (6 hours screen on time that most phones have is ridiculously low, I spend most of my day on my phone, I'm travelling salesman).

And today there is no big difference between different generation phones (S8 has the same camera as S7, the performance (especially single core) of CPUs from 2016-17 like Snapdragon 820 and 835, Exynos 8890 and 8895 have marginal difference).

I have more problems with outdated hardware.

After about 2 years, the degradation of batteries exponentially speed up. It means the phone will be less and less usable. And not everyone want to waste money on new phones every 2 years. Not everyone obey to the planned obsolescence.
Also, if the phone manufacturer/service no longer supports the phone, they won't replace the battery or make new battery anymore, you are out of luck with your non-removable battery phone.
ziana zain, 13 Jul 2017lg haters trolling here..Don't be a blind fanboy. Why didn't you protect and praise the V20 and G5 last year? Those are good LG phones.

And you can't operate the capacitive touchscreen when it's wet. I would have thought that was common sense, apparently not.

Indeed, that's why device lifetime can be considered limited to 3 years (some people even change every 6 months), which is enough time to say that a device is out of date.
But if LG continues to remove features from V series, then what's the point of having V series when it is so similar to the G series???
Anonymous, 13 Jul 2017Then buy nothing. Just keep using G5 and V20 forever. It's simple. People should completely st... moreThat's my plan. I do use a Pixel because Verizon's comes unlocked. I'm giving my V20 (T-Mobile) some vacation time. I noticed my veins get cramped up in my right wrist for holding it too long. My G5 and Pixel don't do this.
Typing on my G5 now and it's still quite a breeze. Only issue I have with it is the image retention using a gray wallpaper that I don't want to change. You can see ghosting like if looking at the curved reflection from an S7 edge.
I had to rank my V20 below my Pixel again just because of its bulkiness and generating electric currents through my veins with its mostly metal exterior. The S7 edge does this too with glass rear and overheats just as badly.
For people who love smartphones like I do, be careful not to hold any phone for so long. It can ruin blood flow in your veins.
