Resembles the S8???
I'm curious, but wasn't the G6 revealed before the S8? Then it's mentioned the V30 looks like an evolution of the G6 except with the curved glass on the sides. Doesn't it then seem that the S8 amd S8+ actually resemble the G6? You make it sound as if LG ripped off Samsung's design?
"LG decided to seal the battery inside the G6, something it hasn't done before with its flagship devices." This is false. Both the Optimus G (my 1st LG device coincidentally), the 1st G-series flagship and it's successor the G2 had sealed in batteries.

Really? The Galaxy S II has not only upgraded to a dual core processor, but also includes a more powerful GPU and a larger screen. You're calling that a waste?
Think of it this way, with the phone being capable of recording 720p @ 30 FPS the phone has basically become your camcorder. At this point in time, most new digital camcorders using either hard drives or flash memory have at best an HDMI output and at worst some kind of analog composite video output. It's all about convergence. How likely would you be to show someone your home movies if you had to sit at the computer and ...
Just wanted to mention that when the self timer was accidentally activated when trying to scroll through the camera's options, it is easier to scroll by scrolling touching the option names on the left side of the screen and using them to scroll. I've yet to be able to scroll trying to move that tiny scroll bar on the right side of the menu. Also, there are a few good options that were not shown. Under ISO when scrolling down, ...
