Rimac , 23 May 2017Both are very good phones. Personally I prefer the LG V20 because has IR blaster, FM radio and... moreDitto.
IR blaster is surprisingly very useful for me to control the volume when I visit my parents' house to dogsit. They have three remotes for the TV. I just have my G5 and V20 to use when I want to turn it off or control volume.
I rotate between several phones when I do some DoorDash. Just for today, I decided to put my T-Mobile sim on my HTC One M7. Had it on my S7 edge yesterday. The One M7 is just way too laggy and the speaker is very soft for some reason. It also charges very slowly while loses battery twice as fast.
So instead of putting my sim back on the S7 edge, I decided to put it back with my trusty V20. The size can be kinda overwhelming because I can't attach it to my belt because it is too wide. But I love LG.
Tomorrow's DoorDash, the usual suspects
Left hip holster case - LG G5 (sim-less) but for my games. Really enjoying the Ninja Arashi game. So relaxing.
Right hip holster case - Google Pixel (Verizon) # linked to my DoorDash.
Glove compartment and occasionally in my pocket - LG V20 (T-Mobile). It also acts as the hotspot since my Verizon is limited to 5gb while T-Mo is the One plan.
But among all the gadgets I have bought during the last four months, it is a second hand PS Vita slim with a $130 64gb card and 34 downloaded games that is getting the most usage from me. I bring 3-4 gadgets to never get bored or run out of battery.
V20 is a great phone. My 3rd favorite phone ever and maybe 2nd once my Pixel battery degrades. A little too bulky but I love typing on it with two thumbs. Try one thumb with an iPhone SE. Typos galore.

LG, like Samsung and Huawei (except the Nexus models) have locked the hidden Android menu where you can change data connection options. I need to force 'LTE only' on sim1 for maximum download data speeds. I'm in an area where the phone tends to switch to 3G 90% of the time despite having an LTE signal. (I do my calling and texting on sim2). *#*#4636#*#* works on any Sony, Lenovo, Asus, Xiaomi, Oppo, Nexus and Pixel phones. Not so on Samsung, Huawei and LG. I'll have to avoid these 3 brands in the future because of this restriction. Not being able to force 'LTE only' is making my download speeds miserable.
Worst part is When ever you restart it, screen always lits to 100% and have to bring down manually. Even auto brightness does not correct this software issue. Now it's came as last in available in markets.

I like this phone, had it for about 1 month. The problem we have is dropping calls. We changed the network mode to LTE/CDMA and also turned off HD voice and video. Neither of these worked. My daughter and I both upgraded to this phone and keep having dropped calls. Any advice?
I sometimes look at this phone and think, "Wish I were this good at choosing the right girlfriend for myself"...
One of the greatest decisions of my life was to get this phone...
The extra screen will be addictive...they must not remove this in the subsequent versions.
They could make improvements here...
The dictionary does not pick up which word you wanna use if you half typed it and your cursor was at another paragraph and you came back to the half typed word. Samsung picks up which word you wanted to type if you put the cursor in between letters of the word you half typed...and you could simply, select the predicted word instead of finishing typing on the remaining letters of the word.
I have been using this phone for a few months already and it's probably the best rounded phone i have ever used, it seriously has everything you would ever ask for! Here are a few things i like and dislike about this multimedia monster!
Things i like:
- Big bright sharp 2K display with great colors
- Great wide angle front facing camera, FANTASTIC primary rear shooter, fun/useful wide angle secondary camera. (Comes in handy more than you think)
- 24bit audio recording using 4 microphones, 32bit audio output from the headphone jack
-MIL STG-10 (good against drops)
- IR blaster
- Brighter and sharper secondary display than the LG V10
- Wicked fast Quick Charge 3.0 (USB C)
- Expandable storage (Currently using an LG 200GB Mirco SD)
- Removable battery (Underrated feature nowadays)
- All the manual controls you could ever dream of when taking pictures or recording video..
You can even mess with mic sound directivity.. (yes i know, crazy huh?)
- One of the more tolerable
Things i dislike:
- Volume buttons don't have the tactile feel i like
- Loud speaker volume was louder on the LG G5 for some reason (Although still very clear)
- Power button is somewhat mushy
- Finger print scanner location (Personal preferance)
- LG's bad update policy
Overall phone is very good ... Battery is average ... After a month use ... Got no difference still is buttery smooth ... Audio is totally awesome ...
Rich feature ... Camera setting ... Stunning video recording ...
But be sure ur device is in good condition ... Cause i got defected ... Upper right side is not fitted properly ... Lg refuse to chenge it as i dont recognize it in time ...
Other wise everything fine ... I like it ...
Hi, i have been used LG V20 for 1 month, and its Processed my Heavy apps With Ease. However, when i used it for more than 10 minutes it gets Hot. Thats why i kinda limit my use of this phone, i kinda affraid that its processor melt. But anyways, it is the best phone , Better than Samsung S7 Edge.

This device is, in fact a 6.4'' diagonally across the screen and it has an extra notification screen-line on top of the normal screen.
pretty nifty phone, just the battery could be bigger.

I have heard rumors of a V20S that got trademarked in Europe...so you may have an official release of a version of the V20.
