Pros: Slick mobile, good color (Titanium ), remains cool, excellent Camera, bundled with quality apps, no need to buy extra back cover, Sound quality excellent, built in IR, remote works for many electronic devices
Cons: Battery life is not good, to extend battery we need to keep in battery saver mode and with this it does not sync cloud contacts ans many apps are getting in to shut mode.
Does anyone else find that pictures are blurry and/or wash-out on fine details? Comparison with Google Pixel XL's camera?
ajinomoto, 16 Jan 2017You need to switch to standard mod, wide angle mode is very blur.Try to factory reset your phone blur shot it can cause the latest software update... I suggest you every time you software upadte your phone make a clear data factory reset.. Try it now... Im sure you love your V20 again...... Camera was really awesome..... I love wide angle shot even in lowlight its really crisp ang bright....

Ahh LG V20...!!! Probably the last flagship on the planet that has a removable battery, FM Radio, Card Slot, infrared blaster and a good old 3.5mm headphone jack! Oh, how I'll miss the old days......
Have had this phone for about two weeks. I love the dual cameras on the back (16MP main and 8MP Wide-Angle), add to that the manual camera controls and it is a great choice. With three mics and Hi-Fi headphone experience, it just adds to the plus side of things. I have not had any issues with overheating, battery life or the lens cover cracking that seems to be the big three for the v20 at this point. I got this phone for the content creation capabilities that other phones lacked (manual camera controls, dual cameras, Hi-Fi, etc.) and I am very pleased with my choice. If you don't need the manual controls, second camera or the like, the Google Pixel XL or Galaxy S7 are great choices!!
My Favorite Wife's Sammy Note died. Going for the Note 7, but that went south. Got her the V20. She's so very happy with this SmartPhone. It does just about anything and more that you would want any Phone to do. The Pics, are the very best. Take in almost total darkness and...amazing the quality of the Pics is fantastic. Used in daylight, the quality is even better. Can't say enough how great the Camera is, it's just that good. We got her the USA Unlocked version of the V20. Bloatware, just isn't there. Oh, yes Google, LG and others try to "stick-it" to the Phone, but she laughs and trashes them out ! She'll say "watch this" and boom, the Bloatware is gone! Using the SD Card is simple with App or Pic moves done right. It's so amazing to see Sammy and other phone makers stick to Android 6, while LG gave us Android 7.0. The diff's of the two OS's is really noticed with the various functions of the V20. The Phone calling and receiving quality is just the best. We've used so many Sammy phones where the phone calling/receiving quality has been trash when compared to the V20. I just can't praise it enough, so I'll do even better. Get on your Favorite Machine of use and get you a LG V20, get one for the special someone/thing in your life, too! Tell them that "Pop sent me!" You'll be glad that you did !
john1102, 05 Jan 2017any news on a uk release?I bought mine in eBay dual SIM. But doesn't have in plug.but it doesn't matter.love it
Sheygx, 13 Jan 2017Maybe you need to clean the camera lensBrand new. Lens is perfectly clean. Pics are beyond awful. We're talking similar to the first camera phones circa ~2000-2001, probably even worse honestly. I am stunned by how bad the pics are, they're completely worthless.
I purchase v20 from Croma. At 55000. Within 15 days. Charging problem.and heating problem has arises. Not god. Bad quality. Replacement refuse. 4 days without mobile. Service Center has order parts
I have been using LG G2 for the last 3 years. Now when I decided to change my phone, I kinda thought of shifting to IOS..bought IPhone 6S Plus, and abandoned it after 1 month, just to go back for LG V20..and frankly, I don't regret doing that...LG V20 is a complete phone...be its ease of use, it's UI, Cameras, Sound quality, display resolution, everything is top notch...I mean, i just fear, I may never be able to shift to any other brand of smartphones...LG is too good..only thing that I miss in LG V20 is back volume buttons...they were too convenient...
Can someone explain what is going on with the camera on this phone? It has generated the worst photographs I've ever seen on a smartphone. I'm getting photographs that are worse than on my Samsung Galaxy S3. Faces look blurry and when you zoom the picture in people's faces are completely a blur and a mess. Most facial photos look like claymation faces . What is going on? Every review I read about this phone said it had a great camera. Some reviews talked about how the iPhone or the Galaxy S7 had slightly better cameras but I expected this to at least be able to top my Galaxy S3 for crying out loud!

I liked it at fir... moreSorry to hear your troubles...I have had mine from day one as well, but from AT&T...I haven't had any of the issues mentioned. I personally love the device. Note that the DAC isn't going to be used to its potential unless you have a high impedance device to connect it to, or can fool it into high power mode (that is one of it's major benefits is the ability to fully drive more high end audiophile devices, not only sound quality)
