It's funny because people like you probably thought quad HD or 2k screens were pointless and ate up battery and now you're using one.
Most people don't use built in IR blasters that's why they're taking them out. If i want to change the tv channel am I really going to unlock my phone, launch the remote control app, select tv, and then change the channel VS just picking up the tv remote and pushing the channel up button? And then you want to turn your air con off so you do all the steps again but need to switch it from tv to air con VS just picking up the air con remote and pushing the power button? Give me a break. It's only useful if your original remotes are lost or broken.
IPS vs OLED vs AMOLED whatever all have their pros and cons it's a matter of personal preference. If the V20 came with a AMOLED screen then you'd be preaching that AMOLED is the best, right? The V20's screen is average at best, in fact if you look at the tests the G4's screen is actually a little brighter. The secondary screen is a gimmick that makes the v20 the largest 5.7" screen phones on the market but let me guess thats a good thing because the bigger size makes it harder to lose right? Haha, I'm sure thats your arguement. There's no way your fingers are going to reach that secondary ticker screen with one handed use. Yes it's neat, but It's still a failed experiment.
The V20 is a good phone, and a great phone if you can utilize the video recording and DAC (funny you don't mention these) because that's what this phone excels at, but you just keep pointing out bells and whistles. Its important to note the V20 does not have wireless charging and does not have any kind of water resistance, two features most consumers will appreciate more than IR blasters any day. Also the second wide angle camera is too wide makes it practically useless as the effect is too much which is why they toned it down in the G6.
I get it, you've bought two so you're "All in" so to speak but I think people deserve more open minded opinions. The V20 wasn't super successful, even with the Note 7 fiasco which you thought would've helped the V20 even more, and since has completely fallen off the radar. It's a good phone and maybe a great phone for people like you but the best phone most certainly not.

You can buy two V20's and still have some change for the price of one LG6 or one LG V30. It's a remarkably much better buy more than ever than the V30 or G6. It's no wonder many in the V20 forum here like me, own two V20's. It is such a rarity.

The V20's 16:9 aspect ratio with 5.7" screen diagonal is actually more pleasant for reading: it displays slightly larger photos in Facebook feeds and larger movies than what you can see in with 6.0" V30. Also, despite having a smaller screen diagonal, it actually has more screen area than the V30 if you include the second screen.
Anonymous, 25 Dec 2017I wouldn't get neither. Why not just get a LG G6 now or wait for V30 price to drop more?Because both the LG G6 and LG V30 don't have the following which users are looking for in the V20:
1. Dedicated sd card slot (simultaneously use 2 sim slots + 1 sd card slot)
2. Infrared blaster - Potential V20 buyers are hooked on the convenience of having a master remote to control absolutely everything anytime, anywhere.
3. Removable battery - Potential V20 buyers don't want to spend time being tethered to the wall. By using an external battery charger, the depleted battery can simply be replaced with a fully charged one while charging the depleted battery on the external charger. When the battery loses charge or becomes damaged, V20 owners can just buy new ones.
4. Oled displays like in the V30 don't last as long as ips displays like in the V20.
5. Second screen - it's actually kind of useful. Not indispensible but something you will miss if you've been putting it to good use. Right now, It has got my most accessed apps on the second page and a 'Merry Christmas' greeting with Christmas tree and fireworks emoji on the first page (default display).

I reverted back to my trusty HTC 10 cause I get better signal on the optus network than the V20 and as much as the DAC is exceptional, the HTC 10 equals the quality and is louder
My equalizer settings for Xiaomi Mi Sport bluetooth earbuds and Audio-Technica ATH M50s headphones:
Music player: BSplayer free
Equalizer app: Equalizer FX
Settings for Equalizer FX:
Virtualization: On (set bar to around 20% of total length)
I get superb, excellent sound from these settings: wired or wireless. I have the B&O version H990DS LG V20. (The non B&O version may have different sound signature and therefore require different equalizer settings). Note: For wired headphone, I like the sound signature better with the "HiFi Quad DAC" turned off/disabled.
