Very tempted.
My Note Edge is on its last legs so it will probably be this or the Note7.

Guess we'll have to wait a few weeks to start seeing some real reviews.
Looks nice.

3200 mah battery was a let down after the speculations of 4000. The removable battery is still there which is good. I'll probably get it. I was going to go for the lg g5 but the reviews didnt look too good. Hoping the reviews are better

Wish they would have kept the same grippy design like the LG V10. Also still would like to see more reviews on software which is the big thing holding me back from this device.

I think the fact that they havent actually released it is the biggest thing holding anyone back ;)

Yes I realize it's not out yet. Still making decisions if I should buy now or wait for this device or a different one.

Sounds promising. Hopefully the software is as improved as they've been saying. But you're coming from Touchwiz... software has got to be better than that. :)

I'm going to miss the hard home button. But I think the battery will be worth that sacrifice.

Quote from: http://www.forbes.com/sites/bensin/2016/09/12/lg-v20-review-heavy-metal-without-the-compromises/
(If you think having a removable battery is pointless, ask Samsungs boss right now if he wishes the Note 7 had that option. If the Note 7 had swappable batteries, that recall would cost half a million instead of a billion.)

Could have saved themselves a billion dollars by making phones with user replaceable batteries.

I just switched to the Note 7, I now walk around with a bulky battery case and constantly worrying about the battery.

It really sucks.

I hope Samsung brings back the removable battery.

Ill try out the V20 but after trying the G5, I lost faith in LG. Doubt they can actually compete with Samsung in various ways

It seems like they've took the criticism to heart. What other issues did you have that don't seem to be addressed?

No. I'll wait for the replacement phone.
That's brave of you.

That's brave of you.
1. No front home button, i hated the back button

2. The screen. coming from Samsung, it's hard to get used to an inferior screen.
3. The dual lens in the G5 is great, but the pictures on the newer Galaxy phones are superior.
4. LG software sucks, i doubt they improved it by much

LG software isn't great but it's way better than touchWiz. LG made some great phones back in the day. Hopefully they'll be able to do that again.
Do you seriously enjoy Touch wiz? It's way too busy for me and I like my phone buttery smooth!

Pics look good to me:

Screen looks nice as well.

I am nervous about the software and home button though.

Shame that it's not out yet. Would be eating the Note 7s lunch right now.
