    I'm aware this is the V10 forum, but I'm wondering how fellow V10 users feel about the next LG flagship.

    I'm not sure what to think yet. I've only owned the V10 since Friday, and I did nose to the grindstone research on it and was hoping the G5 would be a beefier smaller version of it.

    LG didn't meet that expectation at all. I'm not bad mouthing the G5 yet, but it so wasn't what I was expecting. Not a bad thing. Just more research to do before I decide if want to return my V10 or not.

    In closing, LG kind of blew me out of the water in a sense and is now making me drink out of a firehose. I'm sure once I've had a cup of coffee the world will seem clearer, but so far, I ain't giving up the V10 unless Samsung comes in with a curve ball.

    I think the V10 is going to be an abandonware phone. There has not been any word about MM on our devices. There hasn't been a security update (on VZW anyway) since December.
    This may not be a popular opinion, but I think the signs are there.

    I thought it would have the second screen, like the V10, but it's an "always on" screen. It also seems like it will do a lot, love the camera feature and the "roaming" robot, (LOL); but how much extra these costs I wonder. Like that they kept the removable battery, and Samsung says they couldn't do it.

    That piqued my interest, but I'm wondering how much wear and tear it'll suffer for people who change their batteries out a lot.

    I like that they didn't go with the second screen and that it's a little smaller. It looks like the software has improved a bit except for the whole no app drawer.

    The overall build looks nice but the modular idea looks a little gimmicky

    If they would have kept the screen at 5.5" and kept the buttons on the back, I would have given it a look. Instead, I'm looking forward to the V11.

    I came from a Samsung Note 4 and Moto XPE. I love this phone! I ain't changing for anything else, I don't care who makes it. I'll see what the V11 or whatever the call the next iteration of this phone. But unless that offers significant improvement, etc., I'll be keeping my V10.

    I have no regrets that got V10! G5 friends are more interest for me than the phone itself.

    Specs wise, there's not enough there to make me want to jump on the G5. I could see myself using the V10 for at least another year on the current software it has now. Any update it gets at this point will be a bonus.

    I'm hoping the V10 will get the new UX 5.0 the G5 will have.

    I am afraid that is correct, even though the V10 is a great phone.

    They took almost everything away from the previous generation G2 (and onward) series phone to include modules and made a steaming pile. I hope they don't go down the same path with the V series.

    I don't think the G5 has anything to rant and rave about. I love the form factor and weight of my V10. Camera is the best and I like the rear volume rocker. I'll be keeping the V10 until it's predecessor comes around.

    The G5 battery design by itself seems a little gimmicky, and I really don't see anything special about it over the V10. But the G5 is not really just about just the battery. The modular upgrades could be a really NICE thing for those wanting to maximize any particular aspect of their phone.

    That being said, I am perfectly happy with my V10 and will continue to use it as long as I physically can. I have used LG cell phones for as long as 5 years before... I see a similar lifespan for this V10.

    That's plenty big for people who actually make phone calls on their phone.

    Kind of glad they didn't "steal" the 2nd screen as was rumored. However, I don't like that there isn't an app drawer. Everything else on it is cool.

    Yea! What's up with that? What does it accomplish? I just checked my app drawer & its 10 pages not counting widgets. Where's all that go. You can't just pile them into a shortcut-there's a limit.

    I was disappointed that they moved from the back buttons, and the modules seemed a little gimmicky to me but I do like the idea of plug in hardware as long as they don't take it too far. Otherwise it's like a Gameboy with a cellular radio. I'll hold off judgment until I get a chance to play with one.

    I had the G4 before the V10 and really enjoyed it, but not so sure if I would move to the next generation of the V series if they took it in the same direction. I really like this phone.

    Don't fix something that isn't broke. Too many times, updates create problems. I don't want marshmallow. I don't want a white notification area.

    I like the G5 but it's missing some features the V10 has that I wouldn't want to be without now.
    I don't see any phones coming out soon that I would think about trading my V10 for.
