    Did you get any add-on? I personally don't like the design they're going for, but I am intrigued by how useful these modules will be in real life. I wasn't a huge fan of the G4 because of the back buttons, but since the G5 has done away with those, I might try it out (at least in a store hehe).

    Don't expect anything, then you wont be disappointed lol.

    I think it'll be great, should be faster than the G4, which to me is fast/fluid already.

    I was going to sell my S7 edge and pick up the G5, but the G5's usage time is 16.75 hours versus the usage time on the S7 edge is 33 hours, according to Verizon's website. One charge on the S7 edge equals two full batteries on the G5.

    I don't doubt ratings play a part, but I wouldn't believe them entirely. It will all depend on your usage and while the S7 Edge has been giving me amazing battery life (a bit better than the Note 5, which was already great), it's definitely not 33 hours (maybe on Airplane mode, I did survive a 15-hour flight in Airplane mode and about 8 hours of BT music and losing less than 15% of battery).

    Extensive hands on time.
    Can you elaborate more since you have had extensive hands on with the phone? The screen color gamut what is it like? would you say this is the best screen that LG has produced on a flagship device or does it take a step back. Samsung we know gets better every year with their screens can the same be said here.

    What does the speaker sound like and how is Bluetooth does it drop when connected to the car? Does it produce that skipping anomaly that happens often with Bluetooth. Would you say that this device in person is actually nice looking and pictures can over exaggerate the bezel at the top of the phone it just looks awkward up there.

    Yeah. Everyone's mileage may vary. It makes me leery, though, because if I do get the G5, I'll be using a Lifeproof case with it and I don't want to have to mess with that to replace the battery every day.

    Good point. I doubt cases will be modular as well.

    IMHO yes this is the best screen that LG has ever done on a smart phone, the colors are more vibrant and saturated, it also seems to be a fair amount brighter than the screen that was on the G4. I can't speak on the Bluetooth in the car, but Bluetooth using stereo headsets has been flawless. I would say that the speaker is adequate, truthfully most phone speakers are not all that great unless you've got stereo and a front facing configuration. As far as looks go, I think that the vast majority of people will be pleasantly surprised, it's a much more appealing phone in person, just about all of the photos I've seen online really don't do it justice.

    If you're staying with the same carrier just put the SIM from your V10 in the G5, they both use nano SIMS
