If you want to enjoy 14hrs of heavy usage and 40% remain please disable the second screen for better battery standby
Addey, 13 Apr 2020The battery is longer ? yes the battery stay a little longer, how ever the main reason to upgrade it to Android 9 is the gcam

That's right. Good phone, using two devices at same time, LG G4 as second phone. Still LG G4 is my favourite smartphone.
LG G4 H815, S/N:603 using 7.0 Nougat OS on it - amazing main 1.8 aperture camera, colors in on photos are more realistic and natural than V20 camera has. LG G4 taking sharper photos and more detailed when zooming. Selfie camera has 2.0 aperture, which is also very good.
Design of the G4 is perfect, best grip to hold and feel kinesthetically in the hand due to leather back cover. Also decent LCD Display with 2K resolution.
That's right, their slogan - "See the great, feel the great."
Main disadvantage is battery life, it should be better at least with 5 hours screen on time. I have 3-3.5 screen on time mostly, using maximally with battery saving tricks and possibilities. I always have in the pocket one charged removable battery, which is very practical to use this phone. Switching the battery and power on 100% below one minute - it's a practical way to use smartphone. To avoid screen retention, it's needed to use sfilter (Using on V20 also) or any other application - anyway it's better for eyes. There is ability to install wireless charger for G4, but it's not the main thing what I need from smartphone.
LG V20 is good alternative for LG G4 cause of option to switch batteries and use good camera. Wide-angle camera is interesting feature but nothing special for me personally. Using OS android 9.0 pie, ordered Korean version F800S for 80 Â€ from AliExpress. V20 is a little snappier than G4, but the difference is minimal. Always using Nova Launcher on both, greenify also, swiping down by the finger - closes and hibernates all the unnecessary processes and system processes what I managed to restrict due their useless and screen shutting down also - this trick saves battery life. I'm not paying games on both devices so hopefully I avoid G4 bootlooping in that way of not overheating CPU.
At all G4 has a charm and unique design with outstanding user experience from the 2016. For that period this phone was innovative by camera and 2K display. I Hope LG Will remake this version with metallic design.
In my opinion there are no better smartphones than LG. I'm not business man and I do not have maximum security features and security patches for Android to avoid stealing money from my device using internet payments. Just need to know how to use device
and applications carefully and risks will be minimal.
Greetings from Estonia.

Love how this almost 4 year old V series phone has the same type of storage as the V60 and a higher res display, and pretty much exact same camera setup. (like by that I mean, wide, ultrawide)

This phone was never being sold in Europe at all, because they doesn't have plans to launch it there.

Dropped my V20 several times on tiled floors around 4-5ft but it always survives without the screen or tempered glass cracking. It has a soft jelly case though that protrudes higher than the screen in addition to tempered glass so that must have cushioned it for drops with screen facing downward.

I'd like to clarify that you can only have 10x faster file trasfer from phone with USB 3.1 to PC if your PC also has USB 3.1. If your PC is old and has only USB 2.0 port, file transfer will still be fast but not superfast. Regarding screen sharing, you can still screen share if a phone only has USB 2.0 type C like my Samsung A71 - but not wired, only wireless. The disadvantage of wireless screen sharing is it can occasionally stutter if the bit rate is very high (example: wireless screen sharing a recorded 4K video to a big screen tv or projector). Also, there is reduction of image or video quality. With wired screen sharing using a USB type C to HDMI adapter, there is no stuttering and video quality remains the same high quality as the source. (Wireless screen sharing compresses the video before wirelessly sending
the signal to TV or Projector display).

I really wish all phone manufacturers stop using obsolete USB 2.0 interface. That USB 2.0, even if it has type C terminal, is slower to transfer files from phone to PC and vice-versa. USB 3.1 type C has approximately 10x faster file transfer speed to a PC which also has USB 3.1 port.
Also, USB 2.0 type C doesn't allow VIDEO OUT from the USB port. Therefore, you cannot use USC C to HDMI adapter to view/mirror the phone screen to a large screen TV or Projector if the phone specs say USB 2.0 type C. The phone needs to have USB 3.1 type C.
The exception are Google Pixel phones and Android one phones. In those phones, even if they are stated to have USB 3.1 type C in the hardware specifications, they do not have video out capability.
Google disabled wired video out in ALL PIXEL phones and Android One phones in the software side of things (phones with vanilla/pure android) even if they had USB 3.1 type C hardware because Google is GREEDY. It wants you to use WIFI streaming always and ALWAYS with internet. Google doesn't want storing offline movie files in a large micro sd storage for WIRED video out sharing to a TV screen or projector because it highlights the MAJOR handicap of Pixel phones that don't have micro SD storage expansion. Also, Google makes money from advertising and hardware. Google Pixel phones and Android One phones require you to BUY a Google chromecast and you must always have internet connection to view Google Play Movies on the big screen because Google disallows mirroring of offline movies stored in the phone to a big screen TV or Projector. You'll ALWAYS need chromecast and ALWAYS need to have unlimited fast internet if you have a Google Pixel phone or Android One phone. That's why I avoid Pixel phones and Android One phones because I'm in to offline movie streaming. You can't beat the convenience of storing unlimited offline movies in a phone with micro sd card which you can downloaded for offline viewing on free Wifi and the offline download viewable everywhere, not only on the phone screen but on large TV and projector screens as well using wired USB C to HDMI adapters. Google doesn't want that because Pixel phones don't have micro SD card expansion and because Google wants to always monitor your viewing habits with an always internet connected chromecast, in the process, wasting several GB of internet connection/data connection.

AnonD-770477, 07 Apr 2020Haven't the said hackers found a way to root the V20? They don't need to. Capturing credit card information while your paying online or creating an online payment account is enough.
