Why so many disappointments on the battery? My V10 lasts close to all day on a smaller one. Also, no hate for the Note 7's explosive one? To which Samsung's answer is a firmware update that makes it so the battery wont charge past 60% (which is supposed to be an OTA update per carrier...then another update when the problem is fixed to get the phone to charge to 100% again, so that is ages per update depending on your carrier), with a complete mess of a recall on top of that?
The V20 Looks to be a beast of a phone, and this is coming from someone burnt from not 1, but 2 Bootlooped G4s. Who really dislikes the G5's design choices, but likes the concepts that were presented. The V Series have really held up as a better G series, where LG fixes most of the wrongs, and adds more features.
2016 is the year LG can hit the market much better with the V20, as Apple flubbed with its lack of 3.5mm jack, and Samsung is blowing your phones up.

Lenn K., 15 Sep 2016Is it too late for LG to change the battery to 3500mAh? They'd be lucky to find a manufacturing source that isn't squeezing the battery, during assembly, too hard. Perhaps this is why the thing isn't even up for pre-order yet. Can we get one that runs on AAA batteries?

Every forum contain at least two posts of someone wringing their hands over the 'issue'.
Ten days and LG has been as silent as the Sphinx. Who builds LG's batteries?
I can't wait to see a comparison between the LG V20 and the ZTE Axon 7 (Performance, Audio quality and Battery life) especially they have the same amount of RAM and CPU.. If anyone has the Axon 7, I want to see whether if he likes it or not
Anonymous, 16 Sep 2016This or Xperia XZ??This is a phablet . Xz is a normal size phone. Either of v20 or xperia xz will satisfy your needs. They are two good looking devices with new features so you can not really compare them since they are unique in their own way. I have seen a video of some folks vlogging on a v20 and the video quality looked stunning. Wait for more reviews to make a choice.

Anonymous, 15 Sep 2016What exactly is optical zoom?Zoom by lens magnification, as opposed to pixel magnification (basically a crop).
Lenn K., 15 Sep 2016Is it too late for LG to change the battery to 3500mAh? Battery is removable though, if that counts as a plus.
Who (that needs one) doesn't have a portable USB charger these days anyway?
DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THIS PHONE.
+ Top 3 smartphone design of 2016
+ REMOVABLE BATTERY
+ Metal back (less fingerprints, scratches)
+ First to have Android 7, Nougat
+ Faster, smoother UI than Note7
+ Better battery than HTC 10
+ Great camera
+ Great audio quality
+ Cheaper than Note7 and iPhone 7.
+ Less gimmicky second display
No explosions or recalls. An actual 3.5mm headphone jack. No annoying haptic engine home button. Better looking than the iPhone 7 series. Less fingerprints and scratches than Note7 and jet black iPhone 7 will show.
My only issue could be its larger footprint, but seems to have the least issues than all the 7 phones. The fairly average display and no water-resistance is not that much of a worrisome. Everything else looks superb because they nailed every basic need correctly for me.
The moment I read Samsung wants to release the S8 sooner and stop ads in Korea, I knew they finally raised the white flag on the Note7. Sweep it under the rug and forget about it. Seems like Note7 is getting banned everywhere including NYC subways. Note7 broke by heart like Fredo Corleone did to his brother, Michael.
I was wrong, LG. My apologies, Lucky Goldstar. I always knew you were better than Samsung. Just blinded by literally the smoke and (glass) mirrors of that Note7. Apologies to the better South Korean manufacturer that never wavered and changed to be like Apple like your Korean rival does. LG also corrected its mistakes from the G5.
My intuitions for the V20 months ago (June) was right before mistakenly getting blinded by Apple and Samsung since July. Took it for granted but I knew V10 was so underrated last year and developed a cult following. It was during the last few months where my assumptions went wrong. Sorry! Won't make that mistake again.
LG was always the right choice for me...
V20 = a beautiful, great 2016 flagship with a removable battery that won't put you under some planned obsolescence like the rest of them do.
Apple iPhone 7 will win the popularity contest. Samsung Galaxy S7 edge or Note7 might win awards but LG V20 is the best flagship of 2016.
