Since voting on option number one, I've slightly change my mind a little. While the front and the side looks exactly as I would want a phone to look, the back is no bueno. First the glass back leaked version looks almost OK, but with the decidedly ugly dual camera hump. The render with the ugly brushed back is definite a no go. I am one of those missing a few screws and go without protection (screen protector only), so I can't just hide it inside a case. Why do you do this LG. Tease us with a nice looking front, and give us that backside. I would have been more happy if they made the device slightly thicker to hide the hump and may be make the dual lens system look less conspicuous. Extra battery capacity would have been a nice side benefit.
Loved my V10 till bootloop.
Unfortunate to say but, as much as I would love to own anther LG, I dont have time to not have a reliable phone. Sticking with old faithfull Galaxy.
Asuna, 05 Feb 2017Think about it. Sammy bought all SD835 available. so the only option available for LG is to us... moreMy point of disaster not because SD821 is far behind SD835. But for campaign that latest LG Flagship use old chipset. Myself believe that SD835 not fat better than SD821. What is hope will remain if LG G6 can perform well in speed test show/campaign again powered SD835 phone or their camera beat all competitor. And also price, must be very reasonable to keep G6 survive.
AnonD-304329, 05 Feb 2017In real life use, you will not notice the difference between SD821 and SD835, except maybe in ... moreYes you right.
But campaign of G6 use old chipset will hurt LG, just like campaign of phone that powered by MT. SD821 will still enough and/or excellent for many purpose and this year and also MT chipset is good and have many advantages. Remember all chipset is have disadvantages, pick one what you need and reasonable price. THAT'S IS SMART BUYER

However if they have the sealed battery easily replaced without costing an arm and leg, then I will consider upgrading my LG5 which I like very much
AnonD-39937, 05 Feb 2017Snapdragon 821 in a 2017 flagship? This must be a joke or a disaster. Think about it. Sammy bought all SD835 available. so the only option available for LG is to use the NEXT most powerful chipset. which is sd821.
skip or delay? both are disasters. so they gotta eat what they baked with 821.
AnonD-39937, 05 Feb 2017Snapdragon 821 in a 2017 flagship? This must be a joke or a disaster. In real life use, you will not notice the difference between SD821 and SD835, except maybe in battetylife. But the chip will make your phone much more expensive...
The SD821 itself is a good improvement tot the SD820
Sir William , 05 Feb 2017How Fickle LG users or lovers are! Last year they were saying at least our phone has removable... moreAs a lg user and lover I couldn't care less about waterproofing as I am not stupid enough to use it near water.
Once lg gets rid of the removable battery I have no more use for them and will buy whatever phone suits me that year without any loyalty to any of them.
Sidd847, 05 Feb 2017hopefully this one doesn't bOOtL00p! LmfaoIf not, will you buy it?
AnonD-39937, 05 Feb 2017Snapdragon 821 in a 2017 flagship? This must be a joke or a disaster. SD821 or skipp/delay? Both choice is disaster for LG.
Dearest fact_writing loving enthusiasts.Congratulations that LG earns and will earn what it has deserved!And the time in 2017-18 will prove it!!!But SD 820 might have been mistaken bu just 1 !!!Thanks for using Bluetooth 5,....!Justice Rights just supports facts!Omid12Omidvar.
If they want to compete with samsumg they better th8nk of some pen. Well better sooner than late as I expect more of such devices. They are already behind 7gens. Same about phone availability. Where 8s v20 in eu? Still remember what they said about not doing the same as samsung with note5. Seems funny from me to believe them after all that. Sealed battery is no problem if it can be replaced like in pixel phone...
How Fickle LG users or lovers are! Last year they were saying at least our phone has removable batteries and micro sd. Like nearly every other manufacturer you now realise that waterproofing and dust proofing comes at a price.
Snapdragon 821 in a 2017 flagship? This must be a joke or a disaster.
The question is '' there is only apply which can bring the best ? '' lmao gimme some space now...
Modularity in g5 were loved by geeks so much. Did they bought this device? Nope. How much people bought that ultraugly device? A few. So better will see how this weird outdated design they will sell.
