>I think I have 256gb of external storage. What phone gives me that internally?
iPhones come in 256GB versions, Note9 comes in 512GB variant in some regions. It's more expensive, but it's also much faster storage,
I was fine with just 64GB internal storage, but now that I'm on a 16GB phone the 64GB microSD card is essential. I can squeeze into 32GB but I'd like to have microSD in that case.
I haven't heard of many G5 owners experiencing bootloops, but I haven't been following their forums so it's possible. I do know that the LG G4 and the LG made Nexus 5X both were notorious for bootloops, so I wouldn't buy LG (plus I don't like their skin on Android)
Your SD card should be OK as long as it isn't adoptive storage. I don't know for sure though, my main knowledge of bootloops comes from the 5X which didn't have an SD card.
>I dunno mane, I really like the look of this phone. I don't use cases, so having a nice flat grey metal shell seemed like a good option.
I was referring to their theme on Android.
>Yeah I haven't kept up with LG's discontinuation plans. What makes you think it's soon (other than they have new phones rolling out)?
It's been two years. Google phones, which have the best software support on Android, only get major version updates for two (i forget if this was recently changed to 3) years, and security updates for a year after that, LG and other manufacturers typically offer a shorter window of support, much shorter if it isn't a flagship.
It will probably get Oreo (a year late and months after Android Pee has been released) in October, according to one user on XDA quoting Fido (a Canadian carrier).
New feature releses are nice, but security updates are essential. You never know when you're going to click a shady link that uses an exploit that has been patched in later security updates.
