I purchased the LG-V20 the first day it hit T-Mobile at the end of November. I liked it at first. Then it started over heating terribly. To the point where it was hard to hold in my hand. The screen became unresponsive at times, I couldn't turn it off unless I took out the battery, there were issues with the sound. I couldn't hear conversations well and they couldn't hear me. My text were messing up. You name it! The only thing that it didn't do was blow up! I took it back after having it for 30 days and they gave me a new one. They even transfered my information and set it up again as they did the first one. After having the brand new, out the box replacement phone for almost a month it started having the same problems. I was livid!! With the price of this phone I didn't want to ever have any problems!! I haven't found the sound to be as good as the Samsung Note 4 that I traded for this crap. ...Which I would gladly go back to. So now I'm on my third V20. It has already started overheating and freezing. I told the agent at T-Mobile that if this phone gave me problems I want to switch without any charges to me to a totally different model phone. ...You know, they are getting these phones from other countries. Perhaps they are putting something in the phones when they assemble them. Hey, you never know!
Awar, 09 Jan 2017No it doesn't the Galaxy S5 had removable back and batteries and was waterresistance to ips65!Just because they did it on the S5, doesn't mean it was easy to do. Possible, sure but not easy.

is the protective glass of dual camera fragile?
depends on what you mean by fragile. It is glass and it is decently exposed. It isn't a Faberge egg, like some reviews make it seem. It will take some directed force to break it.
Note that the phone retains its MIL-STD shock rating with this factor. (Which I get is a strange, and vague rating system)
Anonymous, 07 Jan 2017hi is the protective glass of dual camera fragile? Yes it is from the many reviews I have seen!
I owned this phone all of 5 days and I knew I hated it. First the camera was absolutely horrible. All pictures looked like the life was sucked out them. The color was horrible. Images of people looked overly smooth and overly sharpened at the same time. I tried messing with the settings, to no avail. Typing on it was a challenge too, I was forever hitting a wrong button, I tried to backspace and hit the enter key instead. Typing it also was causing my thumbs to hurt, because it weighs more and is wider. I exchanged this POS for an s7. Should have stuck with Samsung. My s4 is still a great phone, just was getting slow.
my Best phone
after my LG G PRO-2..
sold S7 edge , frustrating edge screen functionality & Touchwiz is worthless.
though completely my personal preference,
i feel truly complete with LG UX.

Anonymous, 08 Jan 2017Is it IP68+ or not? If so, it's a winner. If not, ho humm... Maybe next time.It's not. No IP certification at all. Having the removable back makes that difficult to do

Tremendous battery draining after recent update (weighed 730mb);
Don't why LG pushed such updates;
Everything was top notch, working superb;
Now LG messed up my V20;
Noteven getting 2hrs ON SCREEN time.
LG kindly send immediate patch for it.
I own both S7 EDGE and V20. Well here goes the conclusion: both phones are absolute delight.Few features i like better on S7E and few definitely on V20.But if you are a technically sound person. Crazy about professional camera shoot and Complete audiophile, which also includes you bit understand and interested in "physics" behind,:) V20 is the phone for you. Else you can have S7E. One of the most complete phone ever ( ir blaster please neglect).
Yes for example, S7E in front Camera is doing very well. When in V20 front camera detailing is better than S7E ( a minor bit) but background gets more overexposed ,where S7E does perfect justice. Love it!( but not always its like that for V20, actually it depends)
Lg v20 audio in a standard headphone and after settings tweaking. Just WOWWWW!!!!
Well,Both are awesome phones.Choice is yours.Or else , you can have both the phones like me.:)
I love both of them.
I hate Lg fake user, 28 Dec 2016Stop bootlooping here if you dont have v20 Cant you read the the fact?? So typical Why so many haters??
john1102, 05 Jan 2017any news on a uk release?there isnt one. US/Asia only
Anonymous, 30 Dec 2016Now LG V20 half of it's usual price.Where can you get it half the price? A link please.
Hi guys. Trying to compare Oneplus 3t and the Lg v20. Understand the feature difference of ram,storage etc. I am a Lg g2 user and absolutely loved it for the last 3 years specially with the UI and the robust hardware. Has anyone tried both the phone and see which is more user friendly.
Skeksisnv, 03 Jan 2017Ive had this phone for a out a month now. Im a heavy user. I usually use my phone for gaming... moreJust to clarify, the back and battery coming off is actually normal for any phone with removable battery, it actually is safer for it to do so. As it A: releases a good portion of the kinetic energy outward and away from the main parts of the phone. and B: disconnects all power from the phone on impact, thereby reducing chances of electrical discharges, doing more damage.
However, you stated that you use the phone for music but didn't mention the Hi-Fi DAC? How could you? lol
