Torn between this and the Lumia 950 XL. But looking at the camera samples, the Lumia looks better.
Floridian, 26 Nov 2015Somehow Apple is able to build just one iPhone model that works on all carriers worldwide. Ju... moreNope, not even Apple. I think its too much of hardware to bulk up the phone and hence no one does that. Check this link from Apple website for IPhone 6s, different models supporting different bands in different countries/carriers
Anonymous, 08 Nov 2015gFlex3 , G5, V10-2(?) equipped with snap820 will be the beasts of 2016 !! nice line-up for high endsLG didn't use the 810 for the v10...what makes you think they will use the 820. Plus, LG is making the nuclun 2 chip.

Get the free extra battery and/or buy one or two extra batteries.
Low battery lever, no problem! No low battery anxiety and no need to hunt for an outlet when you travel! I have been doing this since the original Motorola flip phones in the 1980's.
2% to 100% power in under a minute just by changing batteries!!!
These batteries are light weight. Just put them in a plastic bag an in your pocket or purse.

It would make for happier travelers and less inventory for LG and Samsung, etc..
By limiting the portability of their phones, manufacturers thing they can control the grey market. That doesn't work anyway!
Why is the not looking premium back side a negative point? 99% off the people will hide there so called premium phones behind a cheap disgusting plastic cover.
It still burns that LG Australia refuse to import any model of the V10 and is forcing those who want it to do the old 'grey import'. Not good enough LG!
1. IF jpegs are as from G4 they are useless except maybe for the web as they are oversharpened -ruining the excellentt lens image quality available only in raw manually set files- there is no alternative for photography here. Panoramas are also crude jpegs. Worse - on my G4 the exposure varies as you pan. So, unless your field of view is evenly lit, you will pay out your money to get darkened skies where the sun is combined with greatly lightened shrubbery and trees. Then you will find that at the huge lovely size you get it all looks crude and blocky ( as with the auto and simple settings jpegs).
And there is no way of getting the equivalent of aperture priority as on a camera in RAW manual settings.
There is NO exposure compensation in ANY mode or setting. Upping the ISO setting isnt exposure compensation. And above base ISO the average subject is grainy- which is why the jpegs are so detailless. Unfortunately not sharpening them is never an option and LG deprive everyone of the freedom to choose an unsharpened image.
RAW Stills manually slowly set are however FABULOUS
The lens is sharper overall than any f1.8 24mm camera lens.
Chowhoi, 10 Nov 2015Can anyone tell me whats the different between international version and US version? Anyone h... moreIts based on the bands embedded in the phone. US models support Verizon, at&t and T Mobile while the Verizon model is CDMA primary with gsm options. You might be able to get 2G/3G on these ranges of devices but getting LTE outside US would be difficult as the antenna may not support your country bands.
Can anyone tell me whats the different between international version and US version? Anyone has the model number of each version?
SDKforLumia, 02 Nov 2015where did you see it has FM Radio? It isn't mention anywhere.As I watched YouTube videos I saw in the app drawer the radio app
Anonymous, 03 Nov 2015Do you have any links to back those statements up?The person probably doesn't but it's quite obvious that it'd be a problem unlocking on a surface. I'm not sure about the scanner placement statement but it is what 'cheaper' OEMs are doing with them. Perhaps it is a spacing issue?
.alpha, 03 Nov 2015Give me a 6+" screen, dual speakers, Apple A9 and at least 4,000 mAh battery and maybe.Why don't you just buy an iPhone then? An Apple A9 in anything other than an iPhone is not going to perform as well. Just because it has the best single core scores doesn't mean it'll translate to the same on a different OS.

Can we PLEASE stop saying the Lumia XL is liquid cooled. It is NOT liquid cooling. It's heat-pipes which use vapour.
Many laptops and desktop PCs have used heatpipes for a while and NONE of those manufacturers claim "liquid cooling" as they know it's not.
