Sir William , 07 Feb 2017LG V20 a Phablet?? Since when? I didn't know they brought out a stylus for it, Now that woul... moreWell if it doesnt have a stylus it is also considered as phablet. Everything from 5,5inch is considered phablet.
Julliard, 07 Feb 2017Bought? LG and the others could had bought or at least book a certain amount of those chipset ... moreI burst out laughing. you see, I'm not an LG, samsung, or anything's fanboy. Nor do I work for any of them. I buy what I need. I recommend people what they need or want about their smart phones. be it samsung, Lg, Asus, Lenovo, Xiaomi, or anything else. But I wonder why only this time around I want to see every brand's creativity, if not delayed by samsung that is.
Therefore, I don't understand about what "lame excuses" you mean there.
Your comment was very hilarious and I LOL'd to see you so passionate about samsung. Sorry I wouldn't say you were wrong or right, you decide. But you made my day! Thanks.

Anonymous, 06 Feb 2017The colors get distorted over time on AMOLED screens. In fact, AMOLED screens are worse tha... more"over time". Sure depends how much time and how you use the phone. But most people will be replacing flagships within 1-2 years. And I've had plenty of amoled screens that lasted perfectly over that time period. But the whole purpose of pentile is to actually make it last longer no doubt. And LG's w-oled doesn't suffer that problem with colour or even "burn-in". Burn-in is actually burn out where the voltage over time causes a weaker signal. It can suffer image retention but you can get rid of image retention easily using a mode they have. It requires very specific calibration per unit though in order to gain perfect colour accuracy. So they can't really certify modes because each unit produced is going to be just a bit different. It's best to get the tv and hire someone to calibrate it. That's really its only weakness but if you spend that much on a TV then you are already a videophile.

Anonymous, 07 Feb 201740%? Where'd you get that number from? Qualcomm's own page for the SD835 claims just 25%. lolThat was a mistake that I realise just after I post my comment. What I meant to say was the SD 835 use 40% less energy usage and power consumption compared to SD 821.
Someone Else, 06 Feb 2017Lol. People complain because this is LG's flagship. Why would anyone want a 1 year old process... more40%? Where'd you get that number from?

Anonymous, 07 Feb 2017because samsung bought all sd 835? I don't know, but that is a very greedy, d(u)ck move for me... moreBought? LG and the others could had bought or at least book a certain amount of those chipset from Samsung. LG and Samsung both based in Korea. Why the heck LG couldnt negotiate with their Samsung counterpart? Dont give lame excuses. Samsung manufactured ALL of SD835 by themselves. I would be more surprised if LG bought it all and Samsung left with nothing. All that hard work collaborating and negotiating contract with Qualcomm go to dust. You call this greedy? Samsung is the only brand in Asia shipped the largest number of smartphone per year. They gonna need all the chipset if they want to comply with the global demand and pre-order.
It would be more devastating if news like, "Samsung delay global release of S8 due to lack of chipset" or "Samsung only release SD835 version of S8 in S.Korea and China market" or "Samsung SD835 version will come to US by end of year" or "The rest of the world will only get the Exynos version of S8". Then, samsung will be mocked further after the Note7 event. People will say stuff like Samsung being incompetent not being able to get hold of SD835 that they manufacture themselves. News like ,"What is the reason Samsung can't get hold of SD835 that they manufactured themself?", will be the hot topics. Now, you see why Samsung bought it all.
because samsung bought all sd 835? I don't know, but that is a very greedy, d(u)ck move for me. I really do hope samsung blow it up again. I mean, literally.

The color rendition is still the same as it was when I got it. Same goes for the Galaxy Captivate that I had a while back. There is no magic "problem" with AMOLED, it's the display control board that might have issues, based on capacitor wear, but that is largely individual device dependent, and affects other screen types as well, not just AMOLED. My HTC One M7 developed a slight green tint after a year of usage, but that was a problematic phone overall, just remember the 4mp "Ultrapixel" camera, that had a bad solder mask and developed a Pink/Violet noise in low light.
Shaun Moroz, 06 Feb 2017LOL This company's mobile division is dying. Even faster than HTC.It is not dying if others are constant hindrance. And let me remind you that it is stupid actually to presume Sn835 to be godlike...when 835 surfaces it wont mean that 820 became obsolete and mid ranger...

Anonymous, 06 Feb 2017"Now, the chipset is a slightly newer revision than the Snapdragon 820s found in 2016 phones" ... moreIt must mean Sn821....Because on other benchies every Sn820 phone has 1.6ghz listed, not 2.1ghz
Humm these numbers has my SOny Xperia XZ nougat 7.0...Slighty lower multi core.
Idk why Samsung monopolized Sn835, because S8 wont sell well. Samsung fanboys just doesnt want bigger screens. ANd Samsung opted for bigger. Thats general opinion tho.
"Now, the chipset is a slightly newer revision than the Snapdragon 820s found in 2016 phones" what does that mean in detail?
