If this one become success then I would expect Huawei G6 Xiaomi G6 and Meizu G6 will follow

You need a removable brain then, in case you die in 2 years so you can get a new body. Like hell you gonna keep the phone for 2 years. I doubt it. What is your current phone and how long you had been using it?

Imo they should move away from the "G" series since the G 5 really left bad taste in consumers mouths
After G4 (which I brought it, and after 1 year guaranted, bootloop hardware problem now become BRICK), then G5..mmm..no way,design and build quality is no good (for me)..now G6...ow man..just forget it..i dont want to wait another failure..
Alexg, 05 Feb 2017Okay, bye then. You won't be saying that next year when your beloved LGs financial results come in and they decide to stop selling phones. Which will happen if they don't pull off good sales. Alienating their existing happy customers won't help.

Also RAM means much much more for android. Android rarely uses peak performance (the difference between SD820 and SD835), but it uses RAM all the time (first checks for an app in ram).
So the two things that will add future proofing (removable battery, 8GB of ram) this phone lacks . Neeext
Guys and girls, let's say true - if they use outdated parts (like CPU) - the first - it's not a flagship (even if it's great fast and fits your expectations), and the second - have to be much cheaper as it is, like last year flagships. That's will be honest.

Yes, it does matter. This year not so much, but think about last year (actually 2 years ago) with SnapDragon's 810 processor.
What would of happened if Sammy would have bought all SD 820 processors?
You forget how many problems were caused because of the 810.
To give you an example, in my country, the Z3+ from Sony is cheaper than the Z3 because it has SnapDragon 810 in it.
And why should I pay more for last year's tech when I can go to the competition and buy this year's processor for almost the same price?
If indeed they won't be using SD835, they should lower the price.
You forget most of the people have no clue about tech and for them bigger numbers are always better.
Many people think that octa core si better than quad core :))

SD821 is not outdated. It's released in oktober 2016. In real life use you will not see much difference between SD821 and SD835, except maybe in batterylife. But the price of a phone with SD835 chip will be more expensive.....
Also SD821 had some good improvement over SD820 :
Anonym, 05 Feb 2017Ugh, it really matter if you'd get last years CPU? Do you now see the flaw in your analogy?Comment was cut, it's missing "computers with CPUs from 5 years ago are still perfectly usable, in fact Intel now only does minor refreshes every year. Does it really matter if you get last years CPUs?"

Ultimately smartphones are like computers, When you get a new one you want/ get the most powerful one for future proofing and longevity. Getting a smartphone with last year's processor is like buying last year's tech and already sets you at a disadvantage.
Samsung has quite rightly snapped up all the Sd835's after all its using its 7mm process to make them, Logically if LG,Sony or HTC etc had the same fortune would they be any different? Really? I think not.
Ultimately it may go in other companies favour as Samsung may not use all the SD835 potential and it gives other companies a better chance to exploit it when they become available. First to start is never always the one to finish first.
It's not like LG wants to do older chipset anyway. It's dependancy on SD manufactured by Samsung. What the hell is Qualcomm smoking to let Samsung use it as a tool againsts concurrents, limiting its own profit. The difference between 821 and 835 is minimum, a bit better performance, a bit smaller power consumption, but hey- this flagship got 835 and this one from LG and others got only 821! Must be obsolete! Specs obession and the the need of having always the newest gadget regardless of quality is ridiculous. It's *almost* the same stupidities in mind of iSheeps!
I'm not an LG fan and this is my opinion:
- Great new design (it's so much better that that G5 flop)
- I'm still not a fan of the dual camera (looks terrible)
- Hope it won't have boot loop problems
- Will it have SD card? (phones without it are off my list)
- Finally they went waterproof!
- Kinda disappointed with the processor (everyone wants SD835)
People should boycott Sammy for not playing fair and buying all the available processors.
