My understanding is that it does not replace the G4. It supplements it with a larger screen and a few other changes (more ram, more internal storage, second screen, additional shock resistance) and costs about $90-$100 more than the G4 currently.Does this replace the G4?
Performance-wise it seems decent. I admit I wasn't blown away or anything in terms of the processor speed and basic UI responsiveness with the snapdragon 808. This phone is definitely faster than my previous M8 but I wouldn't say it's revolutionary. I do notice some choppiness in some apps but I am unsure if that's because of the app or because of the 4K screen resolution (or both).The 16MP rear camera now is able to record in full manual mode at 4K UHD 64Mbps on its highest bitrate setting. Unlike LG G4’s 4K recording at 30Mbps, the V10 records at more than double 64Mbps. This is the highest bitrate for 4K video recording on a smartphone so far, much higher than Note 5’s 48Mbps. -- Source
Have you noticed any audio quality differences from your previous phone? The v10 is supposed to have a serious upgrade in audio out quality.Small update but it looks like LG made good on their offer and I received the free battery, 200GB micro SD card, and a charging cradle for the second battery. It took about a month after getting the phone for the special offer to arrive.
Yes, I talked about it two posts up from yours. The phone has a Sabre DAC inside and sounds really good with my Grado PS500's directly connected.Have you noticed any audio quality differences from your previous phone? The v10 is supposed to have a serious upgrade in audio out quality.
Does the new Samsung have a battery this time?The LG G5 has a QHD display, removable battery (now 4000mA vs. 2800 on the G4), card reader and apparently some kind of internal expansion port. Neat.
In other news, the SD card and waterproofing are back on the Samsung GS7.
I suppose I will buy another LG at some point if they are the only company still making phones with replaceable batteries.No type-C connector, no replaceable battery. Boo.
Settings->System Updates->Check for new system updateHow do I do that?
Yes, it seems exactly the same as before. I'm not sure what the point was.Did you update the G4's OS? I fear than mine has received the update due to the huge data usage compared to previous months. It wants to update something, but I keep clearing that notice.
The phone is working fine, so I don't want to screw it up.
