Probably did the best job with it at least according to tests done by notebookcheck. They used a real vapor chamber not just plain copper.

Let's hope LG can secure enough Snapdragon 835's to make this beauty a worthy upgrade from my Pixel. Because, of course Samsung knows even they can't beat LG this time around, so they buy all the premium chips

But when you pay for a flagship, you expect the latest and the best. In 2015, with Exynos 7420 redefining how powerful and efficient a chipset could be, the 808 (with it's decent CPU but below-par GPU) just couldn't pose as a flagship-worthy chip.

LG just tried to make the best out of a bad situation created by Qualcomm
ok, les buy th V20.........
No removable battery, no radio......wtf!
Very beautiful design, LG! Now please put the SD 835 in it, we don't want a repeat of the under-powered G4....
1. Battery is still likely going to suck.
2. Bootloops for breakfast, lunch, and dindin.
LostInTheSorrow, 24 Jan 2017Nowadays most of phones look like cheap copies of Samsung's. ? did you forgot, when samsung note 2 just released, everyone complaining samsung just copying iphone but with bigger screen and replaced the circle button with rectangle button? and S7 is just like huawei G8? and, this LG design (particularly the frame) somewhat resemble huawei design..
I've never been an LG fan, but I have to admit that I like the design in that photo.
Let's hope it won't have the bootloop problems.
Like another guy said: LG = Loops Good :))
Jatin, 24 Jan 2017Your opinion is good but people doesnt just seem to like it because all removable battery lg p... moreBut the failure of those phones is not caused by the removable battery. All LG phones have some serious problems. They are nothing to do with removable battery.
LG G3 - QHD screen resolution with Snapdragon 801: S801 was NOT meant for QHD screen resolution, therefore G3 is always overheating and has poor battery life. They reduced the screen brightness too to improve battery life. The cause is that LG rushed, they wanted to be the first with QHD screen resolution. The result was a crap phone, the G3 with ugly, dim screen, poor battery life, bad performance, overheating, ...
LG G4 - Snapdragon 808 and bootloop: Yes, 2015 is the worst year for Qualcomm. 2015's Snapdragon processors are the worst in the mobile history. Snapdragon 808 and 810 are always overheating, have high battery consumption and very bad performance. Although it is not LG's fault but Qualcomm's, LG should have to use Snapdragon 805 in G4 and V10 instead. I'm sure I don't have to go into details about the other problem: the bootloop.
LG V10 - same as G4
LG G5 - very ugly back design (that looks like a face: two cameras are the eyes, the sensors are the nose, the power button is the mouth, and it annoyed people), poor modular design (for example gap between the bottom module and the phone), useless modules, removed features that were present in previous LG flagships (manual mode for video recording, dual window, app drawer), screen ghosting, still bootloops reported, fragile camera glass
LG V20 - still ugly back design, very very fragile camera glass (more fragile than G5's), very bad camera quality (V20 has worse camera than G5), completely useless EIS (electronic image stabilization) causes weird vibration/distortion to the videos, still bootloops reported
And all LG phones have bad OIS (optical image stabilization): they have wobble/jello effect, you can see it in the recorded videos.
So these problems are NOT related to removable battery. These problems are caused by the poor quality of LG phones. I hate that people don't recognize these facts and instead, they blame irrelevant things.
