    LG V40 thread

    Surprised nobody has said anything about the V40 ThinQ. I picked one up about a month ago. The Good The interface is pretty much vanilla android with a few LG twists. The camera is excellent with a bevy of options. The downside is an amateur shutterbugs might get lost. The phone is buttery smooth and the screen is gorgeous. The screen is usable even in bright light. Although it does take a few seconds for the phone to adjust the brightness on the screen. The phone itself is light and thin and easy to manipulate. The vast majority of the time one hand is all I need. The Ehhhh The placement of the buttons still has me scratching my head. To turn the screen on or off there is a button on the left side of the phone. On the right side is the volume buttons and a dedicated Android Now button. Not sure why this is needed and I would have preferred that the buttons be grouped together. The battery life is ok. It routinely gives me 16-18 hours of moderate use. But this pales in comparison to other phones. Reception also seems to be excellent. However, it has a nasty habit of sitting on 800. I have seen other phones do this which makes me wonder if it is a network issue rather than a phone issue. All in all this is an excellent phone. If average battery life is not a deal breaker then it is worth taking a look at especially at the Sprint discounted prices.
  2. Trying to keep it as cheap as possible. IP based, displaying a message only using a monitor/tv with some type of adjunct/adaptor to receive the message.
  3. Close. It needs to be IP driven.
  4. Hopefully somebody here can help. I am looking for a way to push messages to TV/Monitors in remote locations. In other words, using my phone or computer I can send a message to a monitor several miles away.
  5. I am actually happy with the phone, especially after the last update. The camera app is no longer a hot mess, the camera takes beautiful pictures (although there are some major pixelation issues on full zoom), reception is pretty good were I travel and the bluetooth and wifi work flawlessly. The biggest plus? This phone remains buttery smooth even after 7+ months of heavy use. My two biggest complaints are the death-hold it has on 800 and this has got to be the most slippery phone I have ever owned. This phone is officially the second phone where I have cracked the screen in almost twenty years!
  6. I agree. The phone is much better now. The camera app works flawlessly now and the signal does seem to be a bit stronger as the phone now holds on to a signal where it used to drop and I can pick up LTE where I was only getting 1 x before. However, it still has a death grip on B26.
  7. Thats odd. In my experience, the Essential holds onto 800 like a death grip. It is actually frustrating at times.
  8. Update came through today. NMK24B.
  9. It looks like they tried some trading off on RF reception on this phone. I have also noted that it is not great on 1x. However, it holds onto 800 almost excessively so. Its 1900 and 2500 reception is about on par with my Bolt.
  10. The 10 was a pretty good phone although I missed my true dual speaker set up.
  11. Yup. The wife likes her Moto so far. I just made sure she had a screen protector on day one!
  12. Just picked up an essential phone. So far it seems like a very nice phone. The only thing I do not like is it seems to excessively hold on to B26. Other than that I just have to get used to what is basically vanilla android and the finger sensor being on the back.
  13. After almost ten years of nothing but HTC cell phones, we had to go in another direction. Picked up a moto Z Force for the wife to replace her A9 and I got an essential phone to replace my HTC 10. Really wanted to stay with HTC but they have nothing to compel me to pay the amount of money that they want for their phones. It is almost as if they are no longer trying which is too bad.
  14. We cut the cord about a year ago. We now have Playstation Vue, Amazon Prime and Netflix. We could not be happier.
  15. Still going to have to disagree. What you are proposing is a self-fulfilling prophecy where innovations such as the internet could not exist without government investment. If you are supporting the idea that government has a significant role in innovation and only the government has the economic size to leverage investments into new technologies then your entire argument falls apart. Also, explain to me how the government is dividing up anybody's profits. As I said before, article two leveled out the playing field. In my opinion, this is necessary as long as there is not sufficient competition. What I find interesting is that I have yet to hear anybody propose scrapping the legal cable monopolies. Now that is a case of government control that reaches far beyond article two.
