has anybody tried the LG G5?

keen to know if this will work with rSAP?

Snapdragon 820, so should be good performance.

Looking at the rest of the spec, it looks like it's a bit of a beast, I just wish it was a little more compact!

The specs on the LG page say that it does support rSAP.

How well does it work? Looking for a phone to replace my S5 Mini (rSAP broke with Lollipop), so keen in impressions.

Regards,

On my 2012 Audi A6's MMI Plus, it works flawlessly.

No excessive Bluetooth battery drain, car goes online in seconds and stays online, even sticks to 3G most of the time (it's a pre-4G model) and I can also stream Spotify music from the same phone to the Bluetooth audio in the MMI.

Hard to compare with previous combo (Galaxy S4 + Cyanogenmod13 nightly, rooted and RSAP hack).... as I had a significant software update on the MMI unit at the same time as getting the new phone.

Previous complaints would be that the phone would get V hot and drain the battery VERY fast (~30% per hour, sometimes more!), if I switched the car off and back on (e.g. stopping for petrol), the phone would need a reboot to be able to get Bluetooth to work properly again.
