  1. Thanks for the article. The best write-up I've seen on the 6P!
  2. The international version (H815) will only work on GSM networks. Sprint is CDMA.
  3. It appears the international G4 H815 really tops all the carrier branded G4's. I'm getting 6 plus hours screen on time and 2 days between recharges. This thing is a beast. I like my screen on torch mode as well. I use YAAB auto brightness app and have the minimum brightness set to 60%
  4. I feel for you. Those backs ARE very expensive. I got a spare brown leather back for my G4 on ebay from Korea. It cost me over $70 when they first came out. I'm sure if you contacted LG about this phenomenon, they'd flatly deny all charges. "You're the only person experiencing this, we never heard this before etc, etc, ... " Very frustrating when you pay good money for your device.
  5. Since I have a G3 and G4 on AT&T, I can also say that my international H815 leather backed G4 gets much better LTE reception than my G3 (the blue version from Best Buy) My Sprint G3 works very well.
  6. There's something just not quite right about some LG phones. My Sprint LG G3 works well. My AT&T LG G3 is awful. I can attenuate The signal by as much as 6 dBm just by putting a clear silicone case on it. At first I thought that possibly the case had some sort of metal in it that was acting like a Faraday cage. I tried multiple brands of cases and they all attenuate the signal. Never did figure that out. I have the international LG G4 H815 with a brown leather back which I am using on AT&T. I do not see any signal attenuation with the leather back in place. I also tried some silicone cases on the H815 with no signal attenuation either. This is a very strange phenomenon. I know exactly what you are talking about as I too have witnessed this.
  7. I want to try and find a clear protective case. The phone is so awesome looking. It would be a shame to cover it up. I am normally not a person who likes gold. I prefer silver and pewter, but when I saw the white and gold version of the 6+ it was a must have... The gold is not gaudy or obnoxious at all.
  8. Thanks Steve & Dean for your input. My Note 4 is of adequate volume near the fume hoods, but not outstanding. The LG G2 & LG G3 are really good in noisy environments. They crank through the earpiece! Some owners of the 6 Plus said they had to activate the hearing aid function in order to be gain adequate volume. Just for laughs, I tried that on the Note 4. It really does a nice job of permanently adding extra volume. On the G2 and G3, the hearing aid function narrows down the frequency response making the earpiece sound extremely tinny. Of course those two devices are really loud and more than adequate to begin with. At least after hearing you both say the 6 Plus volume is ok and the device has great sound, I'm less apprehensive about the purchase. I'll also look for a good case for the device. At $949, I'd hate to destroy it with a single slip of the hand! Thanks again.
  9. I am thinking of purchasing the iPhone 6 Plus 128 GB Gold. I have read many complaints from users who claim that the earpiece volume is not loud enough when turned up the entire way. These individuals say that they realize they have to remove the plastic and have indeed done so. Please forgive me if there was a previous post on this thread about an issue with low earpoece volume. I searched first, but only found a comment about not removing the plastic covering over the earpiece. From what I have read, this issue appears to be specific to the 6 Plus and not the 6. Does any owner here feel that the earpiece volume is indeed lacking or inadequate on their 6 Plus? I work in a lab where fume hoods roar and I want to make sure, before spending that kind of money. My Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is adequate in the envirnment that I use it in, but just wanted to check and see what 6 Plus owners think. One more question: How is the vibrator motor in the 6 Plus? I can never even feel the one in my Note 4 even with the intensity up to the max. A big thanks to all responders!
  10. I resurected my Mega 6.3 just this week and use it at home on WiFi as "twospitits" does. I cannot say that my screan is washed out. I was comparing photos on the Mega 6.3 screen to my Galaxy Note 4. I was really impressed with the screen quality. I couldn't believe how vivid and vibrant the colors were along with the overall brightness and saturation. I liked the way the 720p Mega 6.3 screen held up against the Note 4 quad HD screen. No complaints. I really wish Samsung would make a new Mega 6.3 with an amoled panel and modern Snapdragon processor. It would be killer.
