MickeyD, 15 Jun 2017The issue with replaceable battery (which I LOVE LG V10 owner here with 3 spare batteries) is ... morethe actual reasoning that it would be "cost prohibitive" to seal batteries is not because the IP rating...it to bring the consumer in to pay extra money for repairs...for new batteries (if supported..some are hardwired or glued to the device)...and planned obsolescence, as the battery is normally, the first component to begin failing.
Now, if graphene batteries take off, (they're prototyping), we can see 7 times capacity and 7 times longevity, which would meet most consumer needs in 1 battery.

So it is either water proof/resistant or removable battery. Perhaps in the future doing both will cost less but mean time it is one or the other. :-(

I hope they listen to us..
The top section of the screen (below 2nd display) isnt curved causing the main display to look assymentrical. The selfie cam in the centre looks good but may not be practical if one is going to be using the secondary display (now split in 2). Thats my only issue.
Removable batteries are safer/ more convenient but no company wants to do it anymore SO BE IT. OLEDs are replacing LCDs so again SO BE IT. Just hope they keep the IR blaster and FM radio which is one the main reasons I buy LG flagships. If not well SBI!!!
If LG puts a replaceable battery on this one, I'm almost determined to buy two. Why? Because I fear this might be the last non-consumerist pro-environment flagship phone on the planet. Companies are determined to force us to change phones every 2 years. I strongly disagree. My Galaxy Note 3 is an amazing phone and thanks to the replaceable battery I can use it at least one more year :).
6.2 inch.....wooooow specially if it will be Oled QHD+
Really i want strong speaker and New sensor for IR port..
Big battery with QC 4.0 will be more than dream..
Also 128gb storage with this huge phablet will be ok..
Plz LG we want solid phablet more than flagship
I buy it if battery is removable other wise throw it to the garbage
ALGERIA.CONSTANTINE, 13 Jun 2017g6 have ubtade to 32bit Both are 32-bit ESS 9218 DACs, the G6's (only in S. Korea) is the ESS 9218+...with the + simply meaning a more clarity driven tuning (better treble, but less bass)
Where is the claim that the V30 will come out without a removable battery coming from? I see no credible rumor anywhere on the internet.
The removable battery is one of the defining elements of LG's V series. Take away enough of the defining elements, and LG has to compete with Samsung on price. Why would they do such a silly thing? Samsung has the economy of scale. And Samsung manufactures the necessary Snapdragon chip. Trust me, LG doesn't want to compete with Samsung on price. And that means offering a unique product that the Samsung is too lazy or otherwise unwilling to compete against. That product is the V series.
The big selling points for me for the v20 were the outstanding ess DAC and headphone amplifier, expandable memory, removable battery, quality camera, and IR blaster (in that order). I regularly use my phone as an audio device using my own 24bit audio files. The phone allows for the use of high impedance headphones and has a good audio out performance. This is something you do not find on any other phone...period. If they keep this up I will likely continue using their phones. Audio performance is hands down better than any phone I have ever used. I would not ever consider buying a phone without an audio out jack. Dongles don't cut it. I know my use does not match those of many others, but that is what I like about LG phones (at least the V series).
Anonymous, 08 Jun 2017you've gotta back up that bold claim with reasons.It comes down to personal preference. OLED displays can seem to have overblown colors, with IPS being more true to life. OLEDs are normally more expensive. IPS has on average a much longer screen life. IPS also suffers (on average) less than OLED in image retention or burn in.
OLED has better viewing angles. OLED is more power efficient. Some people like the punchy overblown colors. OLED has a much faster average screen response time (0.1ms vs IPS' up to 4ms).
Some manufacturers have utilized Advanced IPS tech to really close the energy and contrast gaps between the display types...
Anonymous, 07 Jun 2017They should never use OLED, because IPS is the best.you've gotta back up that bold claim with reasons.

For example, the 3.5mm jack...what latest tech?... Bluetooth?...it would still be there with the 3.5mm jack, its not a replacement, its a partner...USB?...same thing, except now, you cant charge and listen to music...Modularity has a little ground to stand on, since it is actually "new" and requires extra space in a small device. Consumers are getting swindled, and happily accepting and defending the swindlers...
