How is screen on time? I heard that 8-9 hours with auto brightness is more than possible?

Don't you think that texture on the display looks as if it had an anti glare screen protector? (would make sense because top display layer is plastic?)
Did you know that it takes more time to post a reply saying thanks, than to hit the thanks button?

I regularly get 8 hours of screen time or more. Also, that's what I've always thought about this screen. I don't really think it's screen itself it looks because you can see a rainbow affect just like a cheap screen protector. I guess that's the price we pay for the flexible technology.

Here's the thing I've noticed. There's an obvious bluish tint to the left side of my screen. It's less obvious on brighter settings. The graininess doesn't really bother me. To me, it looks like one side of the screen is brighter than the other. I had one with AT&T and now one with T-Mobile. Both had the same issue.

The resolution doesn't really bother me at all, even when compared to the note 3. The battery life is amazing and the UI is very similar to TouchWiz but it's implemented much better on the LG.

I really like the screen curve and despite having what I would consider an inferior display, I find it tough to switch back to my Note 3.........

Coming from N3, probably my last Samsung because knox crap. I bought this phone through eBay at&t version, unlocked it, rooted it and using it in Latin America with no problems 3g-4g, just missing Wi-Fi hotspot but I could live with it. I'm really surprised with this, it is my first lg phone and if I was told it would be that nice I haven't believed it. Loving the UI, phone is the snappiest I've seen so far, it is cute, unique and the screen is really good I'm not missing any Samsung s4 crap and htc one device I had last year. What is coming next from lg? I'm gonna buy it.
