The V20's dual SIM slot plus dedicated sd card slot ensures you will never have to upgrade to an overpriced disposable flagship phone with larger internal memory - should you run out of internal storage and still want to have dual SIM functionality. What fills up phone storage fast is media files - music, videos, photos which are better stored in the sd card. Using a 400GB Sandisk microsd card now (currently available for $225) ensures you will never have storage problems. A few years from now, when your storage is filled up with 4k movies, (including offline movie downloads from Google play movies, Youtube, etc.), filled up with 16 megapixel photos (RAW +jpeg), filled up with high quality lossless FLAC music and offline Spotify music and other storage devouring personal files like Kiwix offline encyclopedia ZIM files (ranges from 20GB file size for no pics to 61GB file size with pics), you will have option to upgrade to higher storage by then as larger storage options will be available and 400GB micro sd cards will be much cheaper (still, even now, it's cheaper than buying the ultra expensive 512gb Mate RS). That my friend, is called FUTURE PROOFING. 1TB or 2TB micro sd cards are not yet commercially available now but the V20 will be ready when that time comes: while all other flagship phones of 2018 will long have dead irreplaceable sealed batteries or have their internal storage corrupted from repeated read/write/erase of storage devouring media files or their AMOLED screens rendered unusable from screen burn or cracked bezelless displays from falls (curved bezelless screens are very fragile at the curved glass portion).

LG might come up with a true V20 successor with the same or almost the same extensive feature set in 2019, then surely, it's worth the upgrade. No need for me to wait until 2022. Why would I deprive myself of the chance to improve on my V20 experience if and when there really is a true successor with dedicated sd card slot in a dual sim phone, with FM radio and IR blaster, removable battery or AT LEAST 4000mAh battery if sealed, plus any other hardware improvements (micro LED screen, faster but more efficient processor, etc.) That would be a nice phone to upgrade to, but until then, I'll stick with my V20 for as long as it's alive with no real or worthy successor still around. And no, I don't have to own those new flagship phones to make judgment. It's clear they are designed to be replaced every year or two. Unless you like the concept of a disposable phone, then by all means, enjoy your new flagship phone each and every year.

Then in 2022 you'll buy a new phone and all of a sudden that phone will be the best phone for the next 5 years.
It's halarious and sad at the same time the only way you can be happy with your v20 is to put other phones down by saying all the new features are useless gimmicks. It's like you have to convince yourself that other phones are crap so you can be happy with yours. You probably haven't even held or touched those phones yet you already have your judgements.
Oh and please tell me where I can buy a 2TB sd card.
Flagship phone manufacturers nowadays come up with faddish features that rapidly go stale and out of style and have no real long term benefit or value: 960fps movie recording, 18:9 curved screens, quadruple cameras, more and more megapixels and RAM, wireless charging, 512gb internal memory, etc. when it would have been vastly so much better and more cost saving and future proof had they come up with dual sims with dedicated sd card slots instead (cheaper yet can go up to 2TB), removable batteries rendering slow, battery wear- accelerating wireless charging worthless, bigger sensor cameras with F/1.4 or larger apertures than quadruple, quintuple, sextuple, small sensor cameras with crappy digital zooms, small apertures and excessive megapixels, drop resistant non-curved screens than worthless curved 18:9 screens with stupid notches that are fracture prone and unwanted touch magnets, and 960fps videos that produce youtube like 240p low quality footage under low light as if the video was passed through a blender. Full hd and 4k videos in with large sensor cameras. and f/1.4 aperture would have been a much better direction to take than the worthless 960fps 'feature'.

I haven't heard of any flagship smartphone not getting even a single Android version update. If LG fails to deliver Oreo, it will be the first manufacturer to fail to do so. That's not very good for LG's image. They wouldn't gamble on it. Although personally, Oreo or not, I don't have and will never have regrets buying two LG V20's. It is worrh to me more than ANY RECENT FLAGSHIP PHONE released in 2018. Wouldn't trade it for a Note 8, S9 an iphone X or even the ultra expensive Mate RS. The V20 outperforms them all in features/multi function flexibility and overall real life usefulness as a versatile all-in-one device and will also outperform them in terms of service life and device long term usefulness and longevity.
One of the Lg officials has assured to one of XDA members that Oreo is coming soon, and the security patch will be included.

It's common for users who stay on a single mobile app for extended periods of time but it gradually fades away after you leave the app or when the phone screen is off for some time.
