All android phones have google voice, which can do many basic commands, like read messages, play music, call someone, etc. I don't think it can power up the device, as when the device is off, the mic is normally off as well.

Hi guys. Someone can tell me if the 32 bit / 192 KHz QUAD DAC upsampling remain with Bluetooth connection. Thanks a lot.
Is there anyway to make the text delivery report stay permanently until you dismiss it rather than disappearing after a few seconds automatically?

What can you say about the 'Image retenti... moreAll screen types are susceptible to image retention or image persistence if a static image is left on screen for too long, yes LED are less so, however, they still are. Luckily with LCD or LED the effect is temporary, and will fade over time as long as the static image isn't up again for more than 2 hours. As for this being unfit for flagship quality...well, all of them have the potential no matter the brand.
Bootloop and image retention are drastically different issues, and seeing retention should not in any way lead someone to claiming bootloop, that is ridiculous.

I can't use the phone for more than 10 mins because I start to see the status bar and the navigation bar. It shouldn't be like that in only 6 months of use...
Finally bought the V20 today after reading tonnes of reviews and comparisons. Besides the pros & cons, nothing beats a phone with multi SIM, memory card slot and removable battery!

All of my friends' g4, v10, g5 has this issue to some extent upon full screen test on grey background (most visible).
Maybe the Bootloop stigma is tied to them seeing that heck of an "Image retention" issue.
Not acceptable in any way for a flagship device.
Low Profile launch and very good feed back, now updates are 6 months old, and no sign of comming anytime. Prices free fall, not good for company, no specs or pics leaked of V30, hardly quarter left. LG people read it and react.

I'm having an irritating issue with my phone, because of the nature of my work i have to schedule a text to be sent out everyday, sometimes for some reason the text fails to be sent, previously on my note 4, it used to display message failed icon on the notification area, v20 doesn't show this text except if i access text messages meaning that I have to manually check if the text was sent or not which is ridiculous!!
Anybody has a recommended solution apart from installing a third party app?
Loveforever, 24 Apr 2017Bootloop is Bootloop, and what is some Bootloop. ........? Are you crazy Not a single V20 f... moreLike I said I've experienced bootloop I'm not saying it a bad phone I love it. Just that the first one I've had was defected,their electronics it can happen. A bootloop is when the phone keeps shutting down and only reboots to the LG logo, it dose'nt advance to the home screen to utilize the phone or does advance to the home screen and shut down repeatedly or like some samsung phones shuts down in the middle of doing something and restarts. I'm Just waiting for the V30.
V20 has not had a pomp and show like S8+, otherwise it's nothing short of specs wise, probably LG has neglected third world countries penetration. That's why Chinese have come up with SD 835sets too. But V30 must have been anxious to launch. Only price and 128gb internal must.
Using V20 since Dec 2016. ItÂ’s the most underrated phone in my opinion. Excellent build quality, gorgeous screen, very useful secondary screen, superb B&O headsets for my audio experience, below average battery life, excellent call quality & reception are some of the standout features in my opinion.
ItÂ’s the rare breed of smartphones with dual sim + dedicated SD card slot. Have Airtel 4G+ Jio 4G Sims as well as a 128 gigs micro sd card installed on this super beast. This gives me a total of 190 gigs of usable storage!!!
No heating or boot loop as some LG trollers keep posting here! ItÂ’s still butter smooth as when I bought this 5 m back.
Actually V20 has better call quality & reception than my GS7 Edge. Earlier I used to get complaints from my wife for non reach-ability on GS7 Edge but no more on V20. I will not update to S8 since it only has a hybrid sim slot which doesn't match my requirements anymore and pray that LG or some other vendor comes out with dual sim + sd card slot in future handsets to sway me away from V20.
Only regret was I bought this for a whopping INR 55000 in Dec 16 on India launch although there was a company scheme to trade in my GS6 for INR 20000. Now itÂ’s retailing for INR 37500 and indeed itÂ’s a shame that such a wonderful phone lost its sheen so soon. This gives me hope to buy any future LG handset say 3-4 m after launch to get it at 60% of launch prices. Of course I will stay away from LG G6 since itÂ’s a hybrid sim again!
Also hope that LG keeps producing such masterpieces often and there will be a handful of informed buyers like me who get to enjoy the experience rather than the public perception of LG being a bad brand.
