1) what are your preliminary observations about battery life? 2) Is it true that the secondary wide angle 8mp camera has no auto focus? And how is its quality when compared to the regular 16mp camera, especially in low light? 3) Did the camera improve from the G4 (since they same to be using the same camera on paper)?

1. How is the battery life? 2. Is there an option to take 1080p video at 60 fps on Auto mode? Is there a 60 fps option at all?

Would like to hear more on speaker volume from LG G5. Many smartphones these days have poor volume output where speaker volume is not so loud? Anything above 75db is good. Also which countries have 64gb Dual Sim versions? What apps come pre-installed with no uninstall options? Hopefully Facebook or Instagram is not pre-installed on there with no uninstall options.
