    G6+ has all the elements I like and has a set of compromises I'm more comfortable in making (dual camera + HiFi DAC + Qi + large internal storage and compromise is the LG UX and the screen to some degree).

    If we were picking between G6 and HTC 11, I'd take the HTC, though. As much as I like to dual camera...I'd think HTC has the nicer screen and better performance and slightly better audio.

    Wait, do you mean compared to the Mi Note 2 or in general? I meant like using it as a phone for what you do on a phone normally, along with calls and texts.

    To me, it seems like using a phone as one is a great test to how the battery life is for you.
    My usage is different from some as I use my phone in spurts. If I were to use my phone for merely communication, I'd get a Key One. It's the added features like the camera and especially audio that I use a lot.

    I do much of my multimedia on my tablet, when at home. I love the construction of the V20, but I may want something with the same feature set at a smaller footprint.

    Ah okay, I see. That makes sense.

    In other phone related news, the buyer of my 950 finally got the phone today. It took exactly one week. It's good to know that shipping to Canada isn't as overwhelming as it seemed to be.

    Good for you. Early weekend, I hope?

    When we had water shortages, we had to play ball and deal. You'd be surprised how well you got to know the guys who drove the water trucks and their schedules...

    Anyone heard what is happening in Hamburg because of G20 summit? Bloody hell, those are the people I hate the most, protesting against Putin, Trump by burning other people's cars and destroying other people's homes, bars, shops. Great job, I'm sure Trump will stop doing what he ia doing if you burn my car. Who are those people how are they still alive since they are so stupid I thought they would all be gone for good. It is not my problem and my car didn't do anything bad to you. Try doing that to me and you would go directly in my car you just burned so you would fry till death.

    Yep!

    Wow that sounds intense. In our case, the water is managed by only one company for the whole area, which includes multiple towns and cities. I know how they go and it will be hours before anything is worked on.

    People always act like asshats when they go to protest. I like how the mayor of NYC decided to leave town for that when there is more pressing things to take care of. Talk about priorities, right?

    Yup. The water shortages is still ongoing at the house I grew up in. When you live in the middle of a plateau...

    Oh yeah. I don't miss those days. I remember when I first moved to NYC appreciating the fact I no longer had to deal with that...lifting buckets, rationing water. Granted, there are many other neighborhoods that didn't those issues...I just grew up in one.

    As incredible as it sounds, we've had many shortages in South Florida in the past. The worst one was in the mid-90s where you couldn't wash your car, water your lawn only once a week and they'd fine you if the usage on your water bill was over a certain amount. One tropical storm (Gordon) and it was all she wrote. We had flooding for a week and the Army Corps of Engineers had no clue how to drain Lake Okeechobee. Mother Nature, being the mother she is, said "You want water? Here, have some water b****es."

    Not surprised with that about Florida.

    Still, there is a big difference between restrictions on watering lawns and washing cars and not having enough water pressure inside your home to wash dishes or take a shower (that's what I experienced and was alluding to) consistently and then not at all.

    That suuuuucks! Someone at City Hall needs to have their ears tugged on. There is zero correlation between water pressure and flow rate. Domestic water distribution is all about flow. If you put a gauge on a fire hydrant with a 3" outlet and a 3/8" toilet supply tube you'll have the same +/- 55psi. Guess which one is going to get you wet the most. I've been in plumbing/mechanical for over 30 years, believe me.

    So what if your house in in the middle of an incline and the water source is at at a level that's higher fhan the house (at the top of the incline)?

    Atmospheric pressure is 14.7psi @ sea level and 29.92"hg barometric pressure. If the pumps fail you would still get a gravity feed.

    Hearing that the LG G6 mini (it will officially be called the Q6) has a Snapdragon 430 processor, makes me want to be over this hoping and seeking.

    LG Q6 hits Geekbench, Snapdragon 430 chipset confirmed - GSMArena.com news

    It would have been nice but with that processor, not sure about how that handles Android. Sony's offering (rumored to be announced in August) will probably be overpriced so I think I give up.
