Need to see reviews and how that whole thing holds up in terms of battery life since it's using an 821 rather than an 835. But seems solid so far

Wish the fingerprint reader was a bit lower since the phone seems a bit narrower/taller now

The rounded corners of the screen look nice, like an old Mac.

even higher resolution than the G5. Ya know, I liked my G2 back in the day (for the most part) but the resolution war on phone displays is getting out of hand... There is zero benefit to a resolution that high on a screen that small. All it does is drive down battery life.

I do wonder how well the 18:9 thing will work though. Maybe it will catch on. I could see that being useful given how most people use their phones. I wouldn't mind a little more vertical real estate for reading. Of course it would be like 5 years before Apple gets around to doing it...

It's for the resolution. You can watch videos without bars

Sure, for the videos that are 18:9 but in reality many are 47:20 (2.35:1) so even wider than that. Then you just get vertical bars for the 16:9 content. 6 of one, half dozen of the other.

Snapdragon 821 in a 2017 flagship phone? Glass back makes me nervous. Also, while understandable, shame to see another phone lose removable battery.

Looks like LG was paying attention to the Note 7 colors - wasn't that color blue the most popular color for the Note 7?

Between Samsung and the V series, 821 probably was the best decision they could go with. Their PR explanation made little sense

Samsung bought all the 835's because they have to bounce back from a horrid 2016, the explosive year!

That was a rumor that is wrong since Sony will have a phone with it.
