Now that the LG G4 is out, tell us what improvements you want to see in the LG G5 next year!
It's been a good few weeks since the LG G4 was announced, and even though the handset is yet to land in your anxious hands, we've already helped you form a solid all-around impression of LG's 2015 hero phone. Our detailed hands-on reviews, comparisons, photos, and videos have given everyone a chance to learn all there is to know about the leathery smartphone, save for how the gadget will fare after a couple of months (or years) of use. But that's a story for another time, as we cannot fast-forward into the future! Regardless, our overall impression of the LG G4 is that it managed to fix most of its predecessor's flaws (the lagging performance and utilitarian looks come to mind), while improving upon its display and camera technologies's strengths. However, the LG G4, just like any technological product, left a fair amount of room for improvement in its upcoming successor, which became clear in our writing and analysis.

All things considered, it feels like the right time to ask you, our passionate readers - what does a hypothetical "perfect" LG G5 look and feel like, according to you? What's the desired combination of design choices, components, features, fixes of past flaws, and innovative newcomers that will make the LG G5 the ultimate LG smartphone? Go on, tell us in the comments section below. To aid in your imagination, we've listed five areas of the LG G4 where LG could seek improvements to build its next flagship upon. Over the next week, we'll watch you think, discuss, and come up with ideas - possibly beyond the industry's wildest dreams! And then, we're going to pick the best choices and line them up in an article. The rules are clear. Jump right in!

I don't care about a finger print scanner. 4000 mah battery with rapid recharge is a must! stereo speakers and continue using the leather. it's very classy. Thank you

It would be great to have the speakers front facing and produces more power. The buttons are great at the back and it makes the phone looks more unique and different than any other phone. Keep the remover back and battery. A bigger batter that actually gives the user more endurance even if that person loves to play games and Watch a lot of movies. Water and dust proof would be a plus. SD card. Heart rate monitor. Bigger and Better cameras (front and back). Zoom focus audio when recording. True colors. A more premium body with curve. Bigger body than the G4. Better WiFi and signal connections that something I find to be a problem with my G2. Put back the wireless charge like the G3 and the quick charge as well. I always realise that there's a similarity in all the phones... G4 was suppose to Compare to all phones. G5 should be a monster compare. Go all out. Give us the Raw Andriod... more power... more stability... more premium feel. More noise from the speakers.

Front facing speakers, phase detection autofocus if not it's not redundant, better battery life, brighter and more accurate screen, better physical ductility (flexibility), better GPU

The thing I like about lg is rear button and small bezel and now G4 just miss it with bigger bezel. what I wants it need to be lighter, thinner, symmetrycal, and normal 5 inch would be better aesthetically and ergonomically so it doesn't looks like an oversized phone, we got phablet for that.

5.2 inch QHD screen, fastest qualcomm processor, 4GB RAM, 3500mAh battery with Quick charge 3.0, 20mp camera with OIS and 240fps slow motion video capture, 10mp front facing cam with IRIS scanner, 74-77% screen to body ratio, stereo speakers, wireless charging build in, heart rate monitor, dust and shatter proof and if possible water proof as well and 8-9mm thin and made of metal like Micromax Yuphoria That should make it one of the hottest phones.

5.3in screen because with lg's bezels the phone will be the size of most five inch phones, better battery life,More premium finish the leather is cool and all but i'd like to see a glass or all metal option along with the leather, Qualcomm's top soc, not their second best. These are things I'd like lg to add but they're not a necessity. stereo speakers if lg can get them to fit without making the phone bigger than the g3 (since i want a 5.3in screen it could happen), A fingerprint scanner Its becoming a main feature on a lot of flagship devices, plus it adds extra security and it's just cool. and last of all water proofing preferably IP68 Certification. I get a new phone every year so if lg can make something like this^ happen then the g5 could be my next phone.
