Preferred:
Tmobile bands
Unlocked bootloader

As mentioned, an unlocked bootloader is not a deal breaker. I don't think SD card and removable battery are asking much. These have been standard features on android devices.

Standard features on high end android devices are
No MicroSD slot.
Non-removable battery.

G4 and maybe G5 and Note 6 may have those features back. LG V10 looks like it fits the requirements.

I don't consider wanting a great camera and great battery life "high end." It can have last years CPU/features/etc or just leave them out.

Thanks.

Leaning towards LG with G4/V10 this year; G5, S7+, Note 6 or Mate 8 are still iffy depending on reviews and features.



What happened to android to make all the models so terrible? You might as well get an iphone.
