  1. I'm confused by the iPhone 7 being in those lists and not the 8. I didn't think there were any major issues with the 8 compared to the 7.. did I miss something? I would think it's an old article if not for the G7, S9+, and Note 9..

    I never heard there was a settlement. I it has been so long since I had to send my 5X in, that my memory is fuzzy, but I'm pretty sure it was because it was bootlooping.. unfortunately I didn't get it repaired free because I had purchased Nexus Protect, so they made me pay the deductible.

    For me it's only YouTube TV and now I've confirmed Play Movies. I'm thinking the DRM theory may be right on the money, or at least something related that the apps have to do.

    Wow great info thanks. I wondered if it might be DRM related, since YouTube is fine but YTTV isn't, but I hadn't looked further. I tried out Play Movies this afternoon, and it took a bit longer (Deadpool almost had time to start killing.. [emoji16]) but my phone did restart.

    Ok I guess I panicked when the whole first page of the guide was on-demand only.. it looks like it is just my local channels. One other problem I've found is the YouTube TV app makes my G5 restart after a few minutes. It's done it every single time I've tried to use it on this phone. Not just today. The first time it happened, I thought it was just because my battery was low, but found soon the battery level doesn't matter. Good thing I brought my Nexus 5X with me too. [emoji14]

    Got an email saying they finally added local fox stations in a handful of markets, including mine. I discovered something I do not like though.. I can't watch a lot of channels when I'm out of town! [emoji35] and a bunch are on-demand only.

    LG G5 User Thread (LG-LS992)

    On eBay. Not more negative than positive, but averaging 10 negative per month over the last year seems like a lot to me.

    LG G5 User Thread (LG-LS992)

    Cellularstream has an awful lot of negative feedback from people saying they got locked phones. I take it you've not had any problems? I'm thinking of picking up a cheap G5 to use for a while until I can justify a new flagship phone..

    LG G7 ThinQ

    Has LG finally gotten past the boot loop problems? I've been afraid to buy anything after the G series and Nexus 5X boot loop issues..

    3G Shutdown

    Still rocking the Palm Pre, and still getting a good EVDO signal. Except inside the KC convention center today.. holy cow, you'd think it was made of concrete or something! I was starting to doubt it really supported 800Mhz, but I opened the debug screen and saw it going back and forth between 800 and 1900 trying to latch onto a signal. I kept it in airplane mode most of the day.. newer Sprint phones didn't seem to be having issues, which didn't surprise me at all.

    Anecdotal reply: I reactivated my Palm Pre over the weekend and have had no problems with EVDO around the KC metro. I'm going to carry it for a few weeks as my primary. #webosforever

    Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    LOL come on. I'd like to think they would make improvements in their next model.

    I really hate to see that. We need more choices, not fewer!
