I've "upgraded" from a lg g2, but I've now realised it was a downgrade!
Strange that a brand new, mid price phone has is inferior to my old Samsung s2..
- the external sdcard can NOT be used for storing apps, the main reason I bought this phone. Moving apps to sd only moves it onto a separate folder on the internal 8 gb storage. The operating system uses 4 gb on its own, so you're left with about 3 gb for apps, compared to 32 gb on my old S2.. Would have loved to be a fly on the wall at lg when this decision was made.
- screen is not gorilla glass. 4 days and it's allready scratched. Again S2 from 2013 is scratch proof.
- charge time is twice of any other phone I own. I checked it only charges at 0.6 amps, where most other phones charge at 1.4 amps or more.
- bloatware was taken to the next level on this phone. I counted 18 apps which are completely useless to new and clutters the screen and wastes the tiny bit of storage this phone has.
- no light sensor, so you're fighting in daylight trying to see where to turn up the brightness and by night your partner freaks out because of the lighthouse next to her. Again the oldest, cheapest android devices I own have this function.
- no face tracking to keep the screen on while reading. Again, back a step.
Don't buy this phone!
