    I'm sure there's probably some truth to that. Samsung definitely has some folks who ignore their downfalls. This forum was full of excuses when the Note 7 happened. I got blasted for saying there would be a recall when I heard it was coming. I'm sure LG has alot of the same and we all know Apple has some of the worst offenders.
    I'm an old Samsung guy and had a Note 7. I really wanted no part of LG because I like led notifications however I gave V20 a chance due to ir blaster and lack of flagship alternatives when Note 7 was taken away. I do desperately miss led notifications however I am thrilled with the quality of my V20. I do prefer Samsung camera but not enough to make a difference. I much prefer 16/9 ratio of V20 and wish other manufacturers keep it in their flagships until everyone's tv is 2/1 (which will take many years if ever)

    I don't find LG crowd is as sensitive to criticism as Samsung or iPhone acolytes.

    That's happens with every OEM. Because Samsung sells more phones, it's obviously more skewed. But lots of people skew opinions to favor their desired outcome.

    I had both.

    G6 Pros:
    Better fingerprint sensor location
    Better pocketability
    Larger battery (vs S8)
    Flat display
    Wide-angle lens on the rear camera

    S8 Pros:
    Better display
    Better camera quality
    Better storage (64GB right out of the box)
    More biometric security options (FPS, iris, face)
    Better quality on front facing camera vs G6
    Faster download speeds on 4G LTE
    Latest SoC

    G6 cons:
    Rear camera glass scratches easily on black model
    Only 32GB of ROM
    Average quality on front facing camera
    Rear camera takes average low light photos
    Last year's flagship specs in this year's phone

    S8 cons:
    Fingerprint sensor location
    Average battery life
    Red tint issues on display

    Surprisingly, I agree with your pros and cons the most.

    I get why people bemoan specs on a phone not being 'latest and greatest' but are we not at a point where, for the most part, it doesn't matter in the least?

    I mean, in real-world application, last year's Snapdragon and this year's chip won't show any type of difference.

    Personally, I just think it's silly to hold it against a phone. Heck, I still use a two year old device that, for real world use, still can go head-to-head with most phones on the market today.

    Depends on the person. In day to day use, no it doesn't matter. But when someone is spending $700+ on a new device, they have the right to expect the "latest" and most future proof product if that's important to them.

    Yes and no for me. For those who keep phones for 2+ years then yes get the latest and greatest available. For people like me who keep phones 1 year or less, get whats out there that works today.

    The 835 will be old news in just under a year just like the 821 is "old news" today. That doesnt mean the 821 is obsolete or inferior, it just means I dont have the newest edition today but I couldnt care less because I dont keep phones long enough to matter. A few weeks ago I was using an 820 chip and dont recall ever saying "man this chip sucks, I sure wish I had an 821".

    Just like Bluetooth 5.0 doesnt matter what so ever right now since there is no devices to use it with. By the time there is I'll upgrade and get to use it. For those who keep phones for years, you may want Bluetooth 5.0.

    Future proofing only makes sense when you plan on using a device in the distant future.

    I agree but my replacement device does not have the red tint. There were enough boxes checked for me that I went back to my S8+. If the G6 camera was faster and produced more acceptable photos in low light (not even low light) conditions I'd have kept it.
