    My GPS has never, ever, ever worked correctly. Also big issue with Bluetooth disconnecting randomly with every different device I use it with, car stereo, multiple headphones and Bluetooth speakers, etc. I'll have mine for two years in November. I've completely wiped phone twice and still no good.

    I'm waiting to see the new Google phones (formerly Nexus phones) on October 5th, I believe. Also looking at the HTC V20, that just came out that also looks good and big.

    I'm waiting for the Google phones, too- they will supposedly be called "Pixel". I think you mean the LG V20 (not HTC).

    Regarding GPS, there is a way you can go into your GPS settings and calibrate by moving your device in various which ways. Have you tried that?

    GPS are all crap, iPhone included.
    I am waiting for LG V20, I am going to skip samsung for a couple years. The V20 had a lot of cool stuff to offer on there, guess what , battery access, wow what a concept, might be the last one coming out with that spec, so i am going to grab me one.
    The audio is the greatest on the market, check it out, might not be the prettiest one out there but beats a burst in your life...... hee hee

    I have never had a problem with GPS locations.

    it all depends on how many satellites are viewable.

    get 5 or more, and you can see your elevation as well as your 2D location....

    I quite often get locations down to 9 feet....
