I mean, conflicting reports is plural right? Meaning more than one report? Meaning its not definitive since multiple sources are going back and forth.

Do I need to get more sources or something?


That's what I'm talking about Enough said. Thank you.

got more sources for you.

Just in case it needed to be demonstrated.

So again, no confusion on the removable battery, and conflicting reports on camera battery on english sites that I was incorrect about.

Same page now?

May sound small to some, but if you get your phone through a carrier they dump 10-15 visible apps on the device that you'll have to have sitting on your homescreen in some form or fashion. Also, all the apps you download that you only use the app shortcut once or twice will have to be stashed in a useless folder on your homescreen. I know you can DL a custom launcher, but what a dumb idea from LG after so many cool ideas...

Sadly, Android is moving towards that. I hate it myself too, and I was worried about the G5 not having an app drawer. But someone found a way to enable it in the stock LG OS so it is still there, just turned off by default.
Also as you mentioned, custom launcher also can fix the issue

I've got Nova and Atom launchers on my Note 5 and the amount of customization they allow is incredible. I don't really even care what Google does to vanilla Android as long as launchers still work...

I'm happy with my LG V10 I just got recently, it seems to be better than the G5 in just about every aspect...so I'm not stricken with buyers remorse just yet! tongue.gif

Neat trick by LG but i'm worried about durability.

As to AMOLED burn-in, my many years old Galaxy S3 has none so on a phone i'm not worried about it.

Non-removable battery in the S7 is an instant deal breaker.

why do people love oleds ? apart from the deep/true blacks and over saturated colours it looks like a cardboard. i mean it looks grainy and doesn't look like 400+ ppi . i have a 32x ppi ips display and 424 ppi amoled (moto g/x) , and ips looks a lot better and has close to real world colours. that amoled doesn't look as much uniform and solid as ips display. even after calibrating the amoled , ips still looks alot better to me .

Might be your displays, just like that site that tested 25 or so Asus monitors and had crazy variance
post #60 of 125
TL:DR whole thread, is it better than my S4 ?
