LG G5 Feed

Android Nougat!

My phone finally got the Nougat update!  I was so excited when my phone said there was an update.  I was hoping it was the Nougat one and it was!  I really like it so far.  I wish I could change the font on the drop down notifications.  That is the only thing that I would change.  My favorite thing is that it had the actual Android emojis!  I like the little Android blob emojis.  With the Samsung that I took back and the LG G5 that I currently have and love have their own emojis for Android.  That is the one thing that drove me crazy about both phones.  With the Nougat upgrade, I can have my beloved little blobs! :P

I had been using sms apps that let me change them in those apps, but that didn't really do anything for the rest of the phone.  Speaking of SMS. I have been trying out many different ones.  I like several but I don't really love any of them.  Recently I tried Mood SMS.  It's pretty nice, but I want  more customization.  I used GOSMS way back in the day, and I recently re-installed it.  I was able to do offers to get rid of the stupid ads.  I like it, but again, I would like to customize it more!  Someday I'll find the perfect sms app!  I like Hangouts, and Allo is cool, but it can't be used as a default sms. If it could, I would probably use that.

So, Nougat is doing well for me so far.  I really like it.  I wonder what will be next? Oreo, perhaps?


Phone switching.....

So, I spent a few days with my Samsung Galaxy S7.  It is a decent phone, but there were some things about it I didn't like.  I felt like I should have stuck with the LG G5 which is what I went in to get.  I decided to go and swap out phones.  Unfortunately, they would not waive the restock fee. :(  I knew I would not be happy in the long run with the Samsung.  I now own a LG G5!

So, I really love the G5.  It's got a little bit bigger screen than the S7.  It's got an all metal body which I love.  The phone itself is simply gorgeous.  I got it in Titan.  It has a wonderful camera.  The only issue I have with that is that you cannot turn the shutter sound off.  There are plenty of 3rd party apps out there on Google play.  

Also, the battery life seems pretty good so far.  It runs well, I haven't noticed any lags.  I've liked everything about it.  I love that it has the 'knock knock' feature.  You just double tap the screen to wake it up or put it to sleep.  This comes in handy since the power button is on the back of the phone.

Would I recommend this phone to others? Yes!  I will do an update on it after I've been using it for awhile.  I'm sure I'm going to love it for a long time to come.
