get rip of LG after purchased LG optimus G Pro, slow firmware update.
After one year of purchased, no more firmware update support for old model. Sigh.
My xiaomi redmi note 2 still manage to get latest firmware update after almost 3 years using it.
And that´s what I´m talking about.....That´s LG my friends!!! Extremly good looking phones, but dismal batery life results.....And tht´s why any other buyer would choose other brand rather than LG....
I´m sorry but 72H endurance it´s not up to 2017 standards.....
As i expected for sd 821, i'll go for s8 then that look more promissing battery life
zodiacfml, 13 Mar 2017Conclusion......get an S7 Edge instead. Indeed! The Galaxy S7 Edge is a much better buy at this point. Enjoying mine, getting 6-8hours SOT in Nougat easily.
LOL at the people who think they know the final capacity of the S8 battery. Unless you have a prototype with you rather keep quiet and stop spewing rubbish. :)
Kd10, 13 Mar 2017Not too impressive. Not terrible, not great. Of course, I don't think the S8 will be too impre... moreLast i checked the S8 has not been announced yet, unless you have a final prototype with you? If not then neither you or me even know what sort of battery it's coming with.
So people are seriously happy with this? G6 is obviously a nose dive after the barely better camera, now we're getting into the "barely better" battery territory, but hold on, it's not removable.
So say goodbye in restoring your original battery's autonomy after a year or so (too much of a hassle when sealed, just pop in a new one when it is removable).
Forget topping your battery to 100% instantly (merely by having had a spare charging while you were using your phone)
Oh and forget increasing or even doubling your battery capacit either by buying a bigger/better aftermarjet battery and/or carrying a spare.
In two words G6 doesn't seem to be shaping up well. From what is already out, it's barely and upgrade and in some things it's a shocking downgrade. I wonder why/how LG thought they would be kept afloat by such a half hearted attempt.
I'll await for the rest of the review but I'm not expecting to be blown away, one of the most underwhelming experience for years. LG used to be one of the last interesting companies that tried new and interesting things ... too bad.
Not too impressive. Not terrible, not great. Of course, I don't think the S8 will be too impressive either, with an S7 sized 3000mah battery driving a 5.8" and screen.
VasiliS7edge, 12 Mar 2017Perhaps the same if not even a little bit better than S7. The chip is the first battery hungry... moreYes a powerful chip is indeed battery hungry but I think it will at least be more efficient compared to sd820/21. Overall, again, NOT ANY BETTER.
Tann Hauser, 13 Mar 2017From 5.1 to 5.7 inch on same 3000mah?
It will be much worse.
Actually, besides video time, G... moreDon't forget the regular optimization and much efficient 10nm sd835. And after all, I said "not any better ".
And 5.7" size is not like note 7 in my opinion, it is more like G6 i.e a longer, 1:2 version of a 5.2" screen. At least it is apparent from "tall" renders of S8.
Simon, 13 Mar 2017Honestly if we're in a market for the G6, I'd just go for the S7 Edge instead. Similar vibes,... moreS7 edge is indeed the better buy. Getting last year's flagships has been a routine for many people nowadays.
Just imagine how much of a difference would have a 3500-3600 mah battery made? I mean seriously, how difficult it was to put in a battery of that size? That would have hardly required them 1 mm of thickness at max.
LG, always not so Good. Always doing their ugly thing.
zodiacfml, 13 Mar 2017Conclusion......get an S7 Edge instead. This! :-D
AnonD-523334, 12 Mar 2017S8 won't have any better battery life than s7 in my opinion. From 5.1 to 5.7 inch on same 3000mah?
It will be much worse.
Actually, besides video time, Galaxy S series dont fare much better than LG....standby time is miserable, and battery optimization is poor, so video time does not help much.
Users with S7 edge even complaining about getting bad SoT of 5 hr, and SoT is the best battery performance measure as it measures operating maH consumption and screen active scenario....which is what matters most to end user.
That ridiculously low same Always on time on both S7 and LG G6 tells much about standby power consumption of both.
