I don't know about it's performance, but the lack of SnapDragon 835 will be a huge minus for it.
I do like this design. The G5 was horrible and the G4 was their best looking phone from my point of view.
Also, adding waterproof finally makes me interested in LG.
Man, I truly can't believe that only 10% of the gsmarena audience cares much for removable batteries! I have owned a lot of phones in my life, and never once have I owned one without a removable battery. I don't intend to start now.
I am so glad I got a v10 while the getting was good. I hope the V line is still going strong when I need an upgrade.
I just took my v10 (h960a model) to Japan. I brought a spare battery and found it was really hard to burn through 6,000 mAH in a day. My T-Mobile USA SIM card roamed onto Softbank using bands 1, 3, and 8. I had LTE service literally everywhere - even making 180mph on the bullet train in an underground tunnel. And my f/1.8 photos really rock.
2016 was a year full of disappointment in phones. The LG G5 was so ugly. This year will see some beautiful designs and I think the G6 will be a looker. The inclusion of waterproof will be an advantage too. The Galaxy S8 will however carry the Snapdragon 835
If it does come with the 821, then you might as well just get a g5 (Love mine!) or v20. If it comes with the 835 or even the 830, then it might be worth it.
Just remember the last time Qualcomm tried an 8 core processor (the 810), it overheated miserably! The 830 might be the way to go!
to be honest, I am more excited about the V30. Not such a fan of the g series so far, but maybe with the g6 this might change...
the g6 had me interested as a potential upgrade. but a last year chip on this year flagship is a no go ... shame.
if your in u.k please dont buy it cos very hard to get your device repaired or replaced even if your device is on warranty.
I don't care about replacable battery or not.. nowadays people just buy a powerbank anyway. And it's pretty cheap..
But a last year chip is really a dealbreaker to me.. If it's over $450, you're dead.
AnonD-523334, 29 Jan 2017LG gave you v20 and u not responded. And what about the future?
AnonD-523334, 29 Jan 2017LG gave you v20 and u not responded. And it has a lot of flaws, for example the shattergate (fragile camera glass). Also, it does not have heat pipes to cool the CPU.
AnonD-523334, 29 Jan 2017LG gave you v20 and u not responded. Removable battery is not enough, as LG though. It still needs to be big enough.
AnonD-528139, 29 Jan 2017no no nooooooo! use the 835!I hope they can , but im sorry they cant . Maybe u need to read some news .
Great looking phone. I hope they do well with this phone, in spite of not being able to use the SD835. Competition is good for the consumer.
AnonD-425519, 29 Jan 2017I remember a few years ago seeing reviews of Sony Xperia phones here getting 100+ hours of use... more5" 1080p is my favorite but xperia X performance also had same then why it is so short on battery life? it's just that once lauded Sony battery life is now faded.
If this phone is 5 inch or less and lookslike LG Arena - I'm taking it. But unfortunately for many manufacturers it's becoming a bad habit to make a huge screen devices. I think small screen devices is a must in every manufacturer portfolio.
too bad, it isn't SD835. they better put the price aggressively once the S8 comes out, or even before that.
Anonymous, 29 Jan 2017Because people are primitive. The marketing washed out their brain.Yep. It's insane to buy a more expensive phone to use it less time than a cheap one. That's why i boycott the expensive crap. If it's gonna have an expiration date, then at least it should cost $300 tops.
