wow if those specs are correct then this phone will be a game changer.

Common sense is not as common as you think.

Looks like a small step up, all the modern features but not really a game changer. Just a standard incremental change.

Also if the rumor is correct on the 4k display. I wonder if they will do what Sony did on the Z5 Premium and lower the res to 1080p for everything apart for video playback and photos?

That "article" was a piece of shyte, really; a combination of PR drivel and general drivel, and just so poorly written and repetitive. Especially ironic given the lack of availability of the G5 and G4 in NZ.


What would a 4k screen do to battery life, even if just for photos/videos? The screen on my G3 is more than good enough in terms of resolution, though I guess the point re VR (if you care about this) could be meaningful.


That said, I hope it's a good phone - I'd like to stick to the G series when I replace this, and am not comfortable with risking it with either of the G4 or G5.
