If they put in a 4000 mAh battery on a Snapdragon 835 with this form factor, I might think about living with such an ugly phone. But otherwise...why not getting a bezel-free Galaxy S8. I would gladly give up the audio jack for 10% more battery.
This means LG G6 will be a rushed phone. LG G6 seems to have the same ugly design that G5, but with non-removable battery. So if it's true, G6 will be worse than G5.
It needs to be noted that the same design also means that LG will use the same camera glass design in G6 that it uses in G5 and V20 (one big piece of glass covers a large area, and you must know that the larger the surface are, the more easily it can collect scratches/pressures, the more likely it will break). This means G6's camera glass will be fragile.
Well atleast the LG is not the only phone with bootloop.The pixel,nexus 6p and nexus 5 having the bootloop issue to.I don't believe that's the final look of the LG,probably some pic made up and i still have MY LG G4 and still AWESOME as always
I Highly doubt that , otherwise ill call them fools , G5 was not that much successful specially with its design m why would they do the exact same with their next big thing! :) + LG said that they would use more premium materials in their next G , anyways 1 month sooner than S8 is good but it better be a hell of a Smartphone not just an update to the G5 maybe One-Up Sammy in camera Department (pointing @ f1.6) , im waiting its gonna be a fight to watch next year and BTW Happy New Year Guys :) :D
obara88, 27 Dec 2016WTF! why audio jack at top?It's normal, isn't it?
Many phones just use this design.
It is just prototype, just showing the dimensions! They will not leak the actual design now. I own G5 in golden color and i love it. It looks ugly only in pictures. And we hope that LG will come with better design.
I hope in this way the G5 price goes down asap as it is a good phone in the end with strange screen and design.
P, 27 Dec 2016This company is going downhill. The last nice looking device they've released was the LG V10; ... moreI know. Far out LG come on, they look so damn ugly now. The G3 was great, the G4 looks awesome and then it all went to crap with the G5. It looks so damn weak. The G4 looks so sleek and slick with it's strong lines. The G4 looked premium, the G5 and 6.. Well they just look a bit like LG is trying to push the boundaries of modern art.
So they kill(ed) the removable batt feature for that???
k0l9, 27 Dec 2016LG V10 is the design to go otherwise fail is coming Too.much.bezels.
LG G3 is the way to go. V10 is ugly by comparison and a step back (like anything LG did since G3 actually)
I have had very bad experiences with both LG and Samsung their products don't last long and ridden with issues.
Seem that Lg left out their TM of having rear power volume button so sad
This is the g5 it's not the g6 so we just need to wait until the official unveil of the g6 or some real pics ..
rear mounted volume key has to be a must in LG devices. Used G3 for a while and i loved it.
