AnonD-540746, 20 Feb 2017V20 is better in Design and If u like big screens then go for it.For me, the user-replaceable battery (you can also get double- and triple-capacity batteries but they do of course add size and weight) is mandatory, as is the microSD card slot that holds up to 2TB cards (I have a 256GB in mine, which is the largest I have seen). I like the DACs and even the radio (which is enabled for AT&T subscribers). All in all I love my V20 and expect to have it forever (and I will never get rid of my G4 which works great on wi-fi).

I use the Hyperion 2X battery and back routinely, and have the ZeroLemon 3X battery and back for when very long run time is essential. These both need a belt holster.
Anonymous, 26 Feb 2017My G4 screen did the exact same thing the worse part is it will get worse over time.What does Image Retention look like.
My new phone haven't used yet for talking except some recent pet photos I saw colorful LONG LINE across the screen so I took photo of the LV20 SCREEN with my other Galaxy7. So have proof to show them. Is that what you call image retention? Thx

After 3months of used, i saw image retention on my screen, but it will dissappear after cool the device, image retention shown when screen ON above 10-15minutes. Any one experience image retention?

The screens backlight remains on when the phone is locked to display the time and date, etc.
Anyone received a software update around 716mb,just received one downloaded and installed.
Anonymous, 15 Feb 2017I haven't seen any on mine. only a tiny bit off of the secondary, but overall unnoticeable.I think those lights are the notification lights, if you're talkin about the front red light or what, it's the notif. you received so better slide your phone down, and clear the notification bar! that's it!
K Seeker, 24 Feb 2017This phone, LG V20, have such a glowing review on this site yet there's so many bad comments o... moreIt is a great phone. Its release timeframe was in a tumultuous period, (the Note 7 debacle, as well as Google's shift to premium grade phones with the pixels), it had potential to take many sales from Samsung, thereby people found and nitpicked as much as they possibly could (bootloop, shattergate, are the main 2 "issues" to which neither have became an issue outside of user error or device defect). many of the negative comments are from people who haven't even touched the device.
I will say some negatives about it, the image processing is ok at best (the images come out great, just a bit smudgy if you zoom in)...the sensor is capable of so much more, (shooting RAW and processing yourself is ideal). The same really goes for video recording, its alright...the sound capture is incredible (no popping!) but how the phone captures and processes is bad.
The quad DAC is great, especially when you get it in high power mode.
Battery is decent, gets me a day on regular use. Heavy use...id advise a spare or a bigger capacity (if available).
Interface is clean, no complaints. LG really drew back.
and this is coming from a user that had 2 G4s bootloop...
This phone, LG V20, have such a glowing review on this site yet there's so many bad comments on this phone out there. Why is that?
iphone 7 plus or v20 ?
I mainly use my phone for taking pictures talking and viber/facebook/messaging

So that means the blacks look more backlit and less inky?
How is the screen brightness when turned to 55%? Looks good or noticably dim? What brightness setting do you guys use?
Im thinking of getting a v20 and my last two phones have been lg and I always kept my screen at 55% but according to gsmarenas tests the v20's screen is actually less bright than my last two phones.
Sayan, 20 Feb 2017How is the battery life??It isn't bad, not great either though. With average use, it will last you a day and change. With heavy use that can change quickly to 1/2- 3/4 of a day. This is on stock battery, which is interchangeable...if you're a heavy user, it will be a good idea to get a spare, or larger capacity.
Still there is no security update. Camera especially Video camcorder needs a lot of improvement. I always go 720p it is fine or just ok. But when Zooming in it lacks and pixels are broken often. We expect LG to give Bokeh effects as separate app for Bokeh effect. We can not use use Manual mode always. So help your customer to make it simple.
