Excessive Lag Time Between Device Announcement and Release is Killing Excitement

We've talked at length about how overhyping a product can create unreachable expectations, and it goes without saying that a complete lack of hype can be just as disastrous.

My Sprint LG G4 supports wireless charging but for some reason LG didn't decide to offer it in the standard backs that they provided.  I'm a bit perplexed why LG didn't after looking at the back - the pad where NFC is provided doesn't seem to be that different from the CHOETECH pad with the...
