How can you say the G5 is less "functional" than the G4 when you haven't even laid hands on it?
How can I say that? I know how to read, and can compare features and specs.
LG dropped a couple of software features that are important to many. The side volume buttons are not as functional, to me, as rear buttons. Yes, I've used phones with both. And the G5 doesn't support wireless charging. Sounds less functional to me.
