techperson211, 10 Feb 2017This is a B.S. Move for Sammy, all OEM should unite to sue Sammy for these anti competetivenes... moreExactly, it's like buying the entire market for themselves for months, to make a statement we shouldn't buy Samsung phones till the rest of the OEMs get 835 or better not at all!
Samsung, I hope S8 will explode like Note 7! You are keeping the entire 835 production for months?! This is injustice and Qualcomm supports it??? I'm fed up of you two!
My V20 is using an 820, and I'm not even bitter about it. LG phones survive updates better than Samsungs.
This is a B.S. Move for Sammy, all OEM should unite to sue Sammy for these anti competetiveness kind of act.
A Note 4 user, 10 Feb 2017maybe because LG is not founded by a (former) Chinese army member?? and is not a Chinese company?LG is funded by Kim Jong Un.
I think LG should make the price of G-6 around 500$, At first may be,they will earn a little,but people won't left the G-6 if they get a chance to buy a hign-end smartphone in only 500$ !!! It may sound like crazy but it will be 'better than the best' if the price is under 400/450 $, (To LG....) See,who'll miss the chance to get a phone with SoC 821 at that price?You'll get a good response from the south asian countries !!! Truely!!!
821 is absolutely fine, but only if LG manages to price it properly.
I'm looking forward to see how LG manages this
Can't believe Samsung did that, after all the bribery scandal and the dirty work they did setting up HTC , cheating scores in benchmark test, they are just as greedy as Apple if not worst off. Shame on you Samsung!
I don't mind S821 if G6 has a great design, all metal back, compact version (4.6-4.6 screen) waterproof, 3.5 jack and priced between 450-490 USD.
AnonD-510098, 10 Feb 2017If Huawei can make their own processors, why cant LG?maybe because LG is not founded by a (former) Chinese army member?? and is not a Chinese company?
Oh okay, typical LG. Cya.
On the bright side, it wont matter much. Aside from games and multimedia applications, daily usage will be laggy, clunky and will from time to time stop working, similar to Touchwiz. Not even an Intel Xeon would save it -.-
This is no real excuse. But who knows, maybe it is a 2017 flagship in every other part and then sells cheaper than others
They should call this phone G6lite and then three months later release G6 with 835 inside. Dumbsung can't play fair, it's obvious thing for years. But why lg acts so shortsighted? G4 bootloop and deny of support, g5 bad construction quality and in some markets - lg5se at prices of full g5, extraugly design. And now this confusion. Don't know, but it seems LG management working to destroy their company.
All you dumb Samsung haters. 1 thing I wanna tell you that the S8 will be almost 1000 times better than the G6.
There is still some hope- we can see map of Europe on the background. There is still chance 821 is intended for European market due to 835 chipset SHORTAGE. I hope Samsung is not that greedy. Huge fire at their Chinese factory's production (not recycling) hall can indicate new problems with batteries. They should concentrate on fixing that problem and many other ASAP more than mocking their concurrents.
