LG G5 only with new display screen "WOLED (WRGB)" have to be really hit in 2016, if comming or nothing of LG G5!!!!
I dont expect nothing this time, i for one was extremely dissapointed from G4.
G2 was the best LG ever, that led to buy the G3, wich was quite a dissapointment because of its battery endurance. The 2.5k resolution is really taking a toll and LG should step down as the +320ppi, doesnt really gives any kind of a practical advantage. A 1080p screen would do just fone and would help the performance and battery endurance quite a lot.
But the greatest dissapointment was what they did with their bazels, one of the 3 things i loved on G2, after the top notch battery endurance and performance was its body-to-screen-ratio. It is essentially important on phablets, since you carry such a brick anyways, to make it count as screen estate. LG used to have a 75% index on their flagships, but in 2015 with Nexus 5X, G4 and V10 it dropped to 70%, like any other flagship, but unlike the other who have stereo front speakers, or capacitive buttons, or water resistance, LG has none of it, no excuse to drop one of their most valued corporate characteristic, one of the main reason a user would opt for the LG flagship instead of another, one of their characteristic trademarks, a unique advantage.
G4 was the worst performer among the flagships (except the late ONE X9),with the worst battery and probably the biggest frame, as Z5, S6, iphone 6s were along easier on the hand.
The G series keep growing and growing and their bazels are not helping the phone to keep it mobile and this is about to get worse, this time they will get the SD 820 too, but they propably again have the worst performance, as the S7 and iphone 7 are bound to be faster and Sony, HTC and and army of chinese makers will opt for 1080p screens.
The bazels will be even worse, as they will go for a second screen, like they did with V10.
And the battery endurance too, as they will make it thinner and the 2,5k screen will eat away the most juice than any other competitor with the same 820
G3 is probably going to be my last LG...
AnDas, 18 Jan 2016That's true LG phones almost always scorers lowerer and the battery life is horrendous, and Sa... moreWhile yes I agree Samsung has the advantage LG does not always have "horrendous" battery life. And the G4/V10 camera may not actually overtake but they definitely match have advantages
MAGIC, 15 Jan 2016One good thing out soon with a new phone that will have big improvements adapted this year. Co... moreLol LG has been "serving" you guys and look at how far they've come in comparison to the likes of Samsung and Apple. They'll keep serving their so-called masters right to the financial grave.
ThatAsianGuy, 15 Jan 2016LG always brings innovation and fresh designs unlike Samsung who gives same old boring phones.... moreDid your generic Asian butt purposely forget about the Edge? Before you say it's useless or tacky and whatnot at least it was something fresh and innovative, before the Edge few manufacturers were making any changes to their hardware designs including LG which released the same boring washed up one generation after generation.
Jagan, 15 Jan 2016Whatever it is difficult to beat Galaxy s7.Camera,Performance especially battery life will be ... moreThat's true LG phones almost always scorers lowerer and the battery life is horrendous, and Samsung has been owning the camera department for a few years now so no point in getting this phone unless it's noticeably cheaper and outperforms the S7 in every aspect.
Anonymous, 15 Jan 2016With the fall in popularity in the Galaxy line-up, this fight is certainly Samsung's to lose. ... moreThat's what Samsung haters have been saying for a while now but alas here they are still standing on top of the smartphone world. Samsung is a big company that knows how to adapt to markets and consumers, they're not going anywhere man so to say anything less is just straightup foolish.
Ciprian Ruse, 16 Jan 2016It's too big at 5.6". They need to make a smaller version at 5.2" but with same specs. Also th... moreExactly even 5.5" is acceptable. Why 5.6" though, if you're gonna go big then make it 5.7" instead. LG has no clue what they're doing these days.
Anonymous, 16 Jan 2016Okay. Does it matter who is better? I support any Korean electronics as long as they are bette... moreLol this makes no sense, Korean smartphones are just as expensive as American ones.
Anonymous, 16 Jan 2016They might be over doing it....but no. The s7 will more than likely still take the objective l... moreThey'll beat 'em just on brand recognition alone. LG phones are notorious when it comes to poor battery life and their UI is fugly compared to the upcoming version of TouchWiz, I know I can't believe I said that but it's true.
ziana zain, 16 Jan 2016You dont experienced or owned Lg device that why you said that...Lg ui is the best in the world lolYou clearly are a complete LG fanboy. I had a LG G2 and the software looked like it tried to copy Touchwiz but ended up looking much worse. Glad I sold it for a Nexus 5...
why i bought the lgg4 is the small form factor for a 5.5", no side buttons,leather back,expandable storage and some of the features eg notification button and movable buttons now why would move LG move the size to 5.6 better keep it 5.5 and make it slightly smaller by making the side bezels smaller like the note 5 and a smaller chin which they should be able to do if samsung can have a small chin with fingerprint sensor than lg should have a way smaller chin....... i really dont know what LG is doing ...
I see a lot of trolls here. Still, getting the s7 edge or + variant. :)
If (big if though) I ever wanted to go back to Android, I'd buy an LG or the Nexus 6P. In my opinion LG phones are already ahead of Samsung especially in terms of software.
Schiller, 17 Jan 2016For those of you who says the LG UX is bad, cut the sh*t out...
I'm sure you have not been u... morelol complains about people talking crap but then talks crap.and then uses a custom rom to compare to.stock roms to further talk crap.
And I wonder where is Pantech amidst all of this. Their Vega series is worthwhile to compete with LG.
For those of you who says the LG UX is bad, cut the sh*t out...
I'm sure you have not been using an LG flagship lattely...
I'm on CloudyG2 v3.3 (LG G4 rom Ported for the G2), and the UI it's simple awesome... Tell that to all the ones who are using this rom...
I have been using the Galaxy S4 lattely in Kitkat and in Lollipop... Touch Wiz is sh*t and laggy... I've got like 90GB of data and a lot of apps installed on my G2... Last did a fresh format 8 months ago... Everything is going just perfect...
