I've already been keeping an eye on LG regardless of the Note5 and many of my immediate friends and constitutents are as well. We are the same type of people that left HTC when they decidedly thought bagging the options of these two options. We simply...

Disappointed.

---"Some may be put off by the locked-in battery and lack of memory card, but these are acceptable trade-offs to me to gain such an attractive phone."---

Do people not hear what they're saying when comments are made like this?

So being pretty is more important than having flexibility and control over your own device?

It's bad enough we have had to deal with locked down handsets where jailbreaking and rooting has to be performed in order to get the most out of a phone you pay good money for.
