    It was a very nice day today but still a touch chilly and nights are still cold.

    Don't believe all the nonsense. The UK has some lovely weather.

    We do get some really warm days in the summer and some beautiful sunny days.

    It's actually smaller in hand than the Note 5 and I have owned two of both so far...
    That's the only reason why I'd consider it as a 5.7" screened phone.

    Nice! I too, prefer to live near the coast. I'm about 30-40 minute drive from the Atlantic, then there's the mighty 3 mile wide St. John's river right here in town about 10 minutes away, as well as several large lakes... Always makes for great photo shoot backdrops!

    Thanx and true.

    Seems like the Sony phones are wanted, yet the Android doesn't like to hang with the Xperia's.

    I was hoping with a G4 I could have some Marshmallowy sweetness even though they say it doesn't add much.
    At least from what I read.

    Heck whaddo I know I'm always 2 years behind and 200 dollars short.

    1. I could not find the auto lock timeout without searching for it on the internet, not easy or intuitive at all.

    2. My wife used Yahoo Mail on WP. So it was a bit convoluted to get the contacts sorted out. Nothing serious because an internet search fixed it but again not as easy as signing in your Outlook or Google account and getting the contacts ported over.

    3. I refuse to use iTunes. That is software that is still stuck about 10 years behind the curve and probably the weakest link in the Apple chain.

    That is my viewpoint as an outsider looking in. Please note that I have an iPad, iPod touch and an iPhone in the house so I'm not a novice but not completely entrenched in the Apple ecosystem so.....you get the idea.
    Really? You couldn't go through the settings one time and see it right there in "general" settings Himanshu? Come on man.. It's just as easy to find as it is on any other platform.

    And I had also been using Yahoo, Gmail, and Outlook Mail on my 3 previous phones (920, 1020, and 1520) and didn't have any problem adding accounts and contacts. Again, just like any other platform. The thing with Yahoo for me though, what made it easy, is I had already imported my Yahoo contacts (and my Google/Gmail) into Outlook before ever getting the new iPhone. So it was a seamless transition for me.

    iTunes... Yeah, I get it. I can see where it can be confusing for some. Like is said though, I don't use it for anything other than the rare occasion where I want to add some custom ringtones to the phone. I think I might make a video tutorial, demonstrating how easy it really is to add a ringtone to an iPhone. Then I'll upload it to my YouTube channel and share it with that guy over @the verge.

    It is not in the display section of the settings where one would look for first..it is in a place where Apple thought it would be best for everyone...

    I've been wanting to make a new batch of guitar ringtones anyway. I'll link them up through Soundcloud here if anyone wants to download them.

    I see your point. The "auto-lock" though, is locking the phone as a whole. Not just the screen right. Come to think of it, on Win10 Mobile, it's not in the Display section of settings either... lol it's under Lockscreen settings :P

    Short version, since I've been using a G4 for three weeks going into a month now...

    6.0.1 helps out in terms of improving the standby time. Doze is really great on this thing. Once you hit go and start using it, it's a typical LG phone (outside of the V10) where it is a gas guzzler. When i use mine on wifi at work, this thing eats power faster than a hungry Sahib on two Tri tip sandwiches.

    Otherwise, reviews are on point. Nice screen - except for in direct sunlight, camera is good, loudspeaker is useless, 808 runs well mostly but has its moments to lag (that's why I use Nova and not the LG launcher), quick charger is the **** and the swappable battery is the **** times 2. Try one with a leather back as that ceramic plastic is a rip off like the price of food these days.
