AnonD-442781, 06 Apr 2016How many cores does the GPU have? Isbit the same as the s7 or not?Only 4 cores ( s7 has 12 ) so from here we can realise why this phone can't do 4K,has no 1440p display etc

I use my LG G3 to control my Sony, LG and Samsung TVs as well as the cable boxes and DVD players. Also my air conditioner and audio equipment. Each device took less than 30 seconds to setup and I never have to look for a remote. No hunting for the remote or messing with dead batteries.

Ever been in an airport lounge or sports bar and crap is on TV and nobody is watching but you want to change channels but nobody is around to help or they can't find the remote? Problem solved.

There are so many uses for the IR but if your only IR device is the phone and you're a hermit that never gets out then I can see your POV.

steed , 14 Apr 2016I don't get this two camera ..HTC made it fist and stop it huawe... moreHTC and Huawei ideas are completely different. HTC just gave 2 cameras to make 3D-like photos, while Huawei 2nd, monochromatic camera does photos on it's own and support main camera. This is simplified explanation.

robogo, 07 Apr 2016Well... I STRONGLY disagree. What good is a 2K screen on such... moreI already love the p9, I think the p9 have the best design right now, and I have no problem with 1080p screen or 4k video record, but at this price point It's fair if I want more features. I still buy this phone if the price is more lower.

Well Qxdir,
Phones with ANY navigation buttons are retarded by design in my opinion, but I still hold on to my BB Z30, so I am biased ;-)
