I just got a T-Mobile LG V20 for $538 total. I got a rebate card through the mail and was supposed to pay off the entire balance for my S7 edge but ended up getting the V20 instead. All the Android phones I wanted last year, I have now.
I will see how this goes. I just can't stand the glass rear, curved display, and laggy Samsung software. I wanted to get a Sony Xperia XZ to replace my S7 edge but the V20's $480+ price tag was too tempting. Now I have both 2016 LG flagships.
I read from rumors that V30 will go sealed battery for waterproofing. I guess G5 and V20 will be the last of their kind to offer removable battery from LG.
Galaxy S5 = G5
Note 4 = V20
The last from both Samsung and LG flagships to offer the most important feature for longevity.
The irony as I type this comment and hear "Fly Like A G6" inside a restaurant. It's an LG (Life's Good) kinda day today for me
Mr Grey, 02 May 2017How common is the boot loop problem with this phone,is it a common thing or is it exaggerated,? Very exaggerated. The G4 is the only LG device that suffered from the issue to an extent above normal defect amounts.

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!

What can you say about the 'Image retention'?
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?

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.
