    Post Question about GPS

    Thanks for the heads up guys. As I suspected, it seems like there were some issues with Notebookchecks review unit. Are you able to get a stable lock indoors within a reasonable time?

    Thread Question about GPS

    I was about to pull the trigger on the XZ Premium but Notebookcheck's review mentioned that the GPS is slow, unable to lock indoors, inaccurate and falls behind a number of devices: https://www.notebookcheck.net/Sony-Xperia-XZ-Premium-Smartphone-Review.234822.0.html As GPS performance is very...

    Post HTC Flagships - Mega Tech Discussion Thread [ HTC One | HTC 10 | U11 / U11+ | U12+]

    That's bad news. The pentile QHD AMOLED display of my S7 Edge looks disappointingly grainy with the Gear VR. Even the iPhone 6s plus with its true 1080p screen looks better with Cardboard. I would love to try the HTC 10 and it's pixel dense IPS screen with Cardboard.

    I think what he means is that it'd be helpful if you could post comparison pictures or samples where the 6P is doing better than the HTC 10. I know I'd definitely be interested in those as I've had the 6P before and know what it's camera was capable off. Who knows, perhaps after looking at the...

    Completely stutter free and smooth? I disagree man. I have the Exynos S7 Edge currently on the APD1 fw and It's embarrassingly easy to make the S7 lag (seriously, go to the gallery once you've taken more than 300 pics - open a pic and press the back button to go back to the grid - lag city -...

    Thread "ok google" voice detection while screen off?

    Can anyone with an S7 tell me if it has "ok google" voice detection while screen off? Early reports seem to indicate that it doesn't - which will be a deal breaker for me. https://www.reddit.com/r/Android/comments/48be80/this_is_the_new_touchwiz_on_the_galaxy_s7edge/d0jcgxy?context=3 Thanks...

    Post The LG-G4 Lounge

    1. I came to the same conclusion and chose the S6 over the edge when the time came 2. I loved that the S6 has diffrent screen modes for adjusing the color saturation - but I prefer the screen on the G4 for its size and cooler color temperature. Has to be noted that the S6 screen has much better...

    Post How much do you like your G4? 1-10? (Vote)

    Solid 8/10 for me. Good battery (for a 2015 flagship), Good screen, amazing still camera, micro sd and removable battery. Points taken off due to minor issues such as plastic chrome edges, video quality, it being annoyingly wobbly on a flat surface, the UI and occasional lock-ups/stutters.

    Post Post/discuss your battery life!

    The G4 is proof that one does NOT need to disable useful android features to get acceptable battery life. When I had the S6 people would tell me to disable all location services, location history, google now, twitter sync and uninstall facebook and do a bunch of other crazy things - which...

    Honestly, if you're not having any issues with your S6 then there's nothing that can match that experience. I have a very silly habit of switching phones every few months but If I didn't have network/battery issues with my S6, it would have been the first phone in a long, long time which I...

    Damn it. The G4 temptation is getting to me. I had the S6 and loved everything about it but it didn't play well with my network at work and couldn't hold an LTE signal - thus draining the battery. My iPhone 6 plus and nexus 5 can hold the signal fine.

    Post Review After Having the Phone for 6 Days

    Nice comparison, very helpful. Can you elaborate a bit more on the difference in battery between the S6 and G4? Is the difference big? I resturned the S6 because the battery would crap out on me after 8-9 hours use on network and 2 hours SoT. Thanks!

    Post LG Review Unit:I just received my G4 from LG

    Thanks for that! That makes the decision that much harder for me. How do you find the LG UI skin in style and function compared to the S6? S6 has gone pretty clean and minimal and the G4 is still cluttered (biggest difference in both approaches can be seen in the Music app) Thanks again!

    Post Nexus 6, the worst phone Google made??

    The lag only went away when it got Jellybean. Before that, especially at launch, the performance was terrible relative to other WVGA phones. ICS was buggy as hell at launch, freezing, crashing and restarting all over the place and the hardware and software were clearly not ready for the 720p...

    I went to Jarir but they have absolutely no understanding of 'phone never goes into deep sleep and drains all the battery when idle despite factory resetting and adding no apps/accounts'. They refused and told me it's normal on android phones so I should keep it off when not in use :eek:
