Why L-shape? Why not pretzel-shape? Hell why not replace the back cover by a shaped battery. (Worried about battery being stolen, screw it to front panel just like back cover)

The only way for LG to get some profit. Otherwise their mobile division... Disaster!!

Fully agree with you. That happens when people forget their root.
Remember tom cruze movie the last samurai?

less cost to make = more profit to their pockets.

that's apple mind! the people who buy this mediocre phones dont have braind after all. Apple work like: you see a rich person and give him 1000$, and you are the poor person.

MAKE NO SENSE BUT APPLE IS A BIG CAPITALIST, THE BIGGER IN THIS WORLD! OPEN YOUR EYES CONSUMER!!!!

Display change to oled Samsung, battery change to LG. The Apple is getting become like a Korea phone. Who is benefit from this? KOREA. Who is the loser? IPhone fans, because Apple just lost itself identity and creativity but looks close to being a Korea oem.

For people that don't know, the best batteries are from Panasonic, TDK, Murata and LG. Panasonic is arguably the best but the other 3 aren't far behind. Samsung's battery are generally mid-range stuff and aren't as good as Panasonic, LG, etc.

Their 256GB model of the iPhone 7 Plus that costs $1000 could've at least had a definitive feature like a modern 4K display or flagship worthy grade camera.

It seems that this underwhelming bad attitude of Apple to their customers can never be changed anymore.
When Steve Jobs loves his own customers, the more Tim Cook actually hates them.
If he truly loves his customers, he would listen to them and do the radical changes to justify the pricing of their devices.

The last best iPhones were the 4th and 5th generations. Their successors are now meh, or thumbs down.

Glad Steve jobs is not here anymore with his mindset apple would have become like blackberry and somehow Nokia by not adapting to change.
