funny All the android fans laughed at apples iphone 4/4s for having no removable battery, no sd slot, no LTE, and a glass rear housing for the last two years. Here comes LG/google 2 years later with all the same faults and it's the holy grail.
Right... because this new layout is getting lots of praises from the android community...
We don't like it.

Not sure about the back but all the missing features are frustrating to me.
No LTE, only 16GB, and non-removable battery all suck. Triple deal-breaker.
The only people are happy, and they have reason to be, are those who care about the price. I didn't care about the price at all I just wanted LTE and at least 32GB to go with those timely Android updates.
Now I have to choose between a phone with LTE and decent storage or one that will undoubtedly have late updates before it is abandoned in a year or less. The solution to the update problem was 'get a Nexus' well it is here and it sucks so now what?
Those are just bitter pills to swallow.
I don't need LTE. In fact I used to use EDGE most of the time but decided to go ahead with 3G/HSPD. But I just don't need that LTE speed on a smart phone. Im not downloading movies over the mobile network...
I never filled my last 16GB so while I am unhappy about the decision, in the end its not likely to affect me.
non removable battery just seems like total foolishness. I never intend to upgrade my device. I don't chase the latest because it does what I need already. Still, considering I upgraded my last phone before the battery died I have to admit I wouldn't use that feature.
That's the rational approach. If I were a shareholder though I would question the decision because it will turn a lot of people off.
