    There’s always an upside to a highly anticipated flagship phone failing to translate potential into actual box-office success, but while the LG G5 reportedly flopped hard, the ensuing sweet deals never came.

    While pre-release benchmarks can generally be relied on to reveal key device specifications ahead of time, as long as we get the info from the horse’s mouth, there’s always the occasional hoax, misinterpretation of preliminary data, or good old fashioned human error to take into consideration.
