It helps with drop resistance. Now if a phone survives a drop without screen damage, chances are, its water resistant seals and battery may suffer damage (battery leaks or becomes swollen). I'm glad the V20 has removable battery option. If battery gets damaged from a drop, I'll just replace it with any of my spare batteries. They only cost $10-$15 anyway.

Your phone may take a relatively small fall and just because of the dynamics of how it hit the ground still brake or end up with a cracked screen.
Most phones can take a fall, anyways. It's not like manufactures don't drop test their own phones in the development phase. It's the screens that are most likely to crack, and the v20s screen is protected by the huge bezels more than anything.

It's a reminder to folks with ip68 phones not to test the waterproof 'feature' of their phones by internationally taking a shower with it or go swimming with it. I'm not saying waterproofing as a feature is useless. It's nice to have but it is highly overrated. Between a waterproof phone with sealed battery and wireless charging and a non waterproof one with removable battery and drop resistance, I'll choose the removable battery phone with drop resistance anytime. More phones die from drops and dead batteries than from water damage.

While you provide an instance of a Sony phone still suffering from water damage, chances are If the OP's phone was waterproof it'd still be working but this is the tradeoff of having a phone with a removable back cover.

That includes dropping and water damage. It's not exclusive to the V20 mind you. Even a friend's supposedly waterproof Sony Xperia XZ premium got damaged from water droplets condensing in the phone screen when he used his phone while in the shower.

As I said before my last two phones had a removable battery and guess what I never had to remove them or replace them for the 18 to 24 months i used each one. They also both had ir blasters, again, didnt ever really use it other than to show some friends. I only listen to the radio while Im driving so I don't need fm radio on my phone. I care about screen quality, camera, and battery life off one charge.
I just had my LG V20 accidentally dropped from a pail of water. After taking precautions to dry it e.g. putting it in dry rice and using blower it still had a lot of issues .Now its screen is pixelated with green line appearing at the middle. It lags a lot. Screen is unresponsive from time to time. I have other smartphone before that survive accidental water splashes (e.g. lenovo) just by using blower and storing it in uncooked rice overnight. This phone is a total waste of money. Considering i just bought it about two months ago because of good reviews.

You obviously like disposable phones. Well, I don't. A phone should be no different from a desktop PC in life cycle (5-6 years) and it should not cost more than a good desktop because it clearly is not jewelry.
Oh Noooooo, LG???
Just kidding, LG phones are among the best phones I ever used (iPhone, Samsung, Sony, Xiaoumi, HTC).
Some people have the "habit of generalisation"; having one problem with a certain smartphone from a brand, (even if his local dealer was not caring or if the repair shop in his town failed him), then, he will come to this forum to bash every single phone of this brand and say for example >>> "LG?? Noway!!!! the worse phone ever....bla...bla...bla..">>> despite he did not and will not buy this phone.

Anti Samsung trolls raise Note 7 exploding battery issues in EVERY Samsung phone forum OVER AND OVER again despite it being isolated to the Note 7 only and being old news. It's the same with anti Apple trolls. They keep on raising bend gate issues in EVERY iphone forum OVER AND OVER again despite it being corrected in newer iphone 6 batches and no longer the case with all newer iphone releases. Trolling is so common to popular brands like Samsung and Apple. For the LG V20 to get trolled more than the newer V30 despite being an older flagship phone only means one thing: it still is a very capable competitor even when compared to the newest 2018 flagship phones. It is still a good choice, and still a reasonable and competitive phone to buy in 2018. Otherwise it would already have been forgotten with trolls moving on to newer models or other brands and not waste time with the oold, forgotten V20.

People still bring up Apple's iPhone6 "bend gate" and Samsung's battery fiasco with the Note 7. The only difference is while those problems only applied to one particular device (iPhone6 and Note 7), where as LG has gone above and beyond with bootloop affecting several of their devices (G4, G5, V10). It's only fair and smart that people in the market for a V20 or a G6 ask this question (since their predecessors had this problem) even if it's been asked a million times already like every other question on the internet.
Anonymous, 22 Mar 2018I think people are asking because the v10 had bootloop issues. So it kinda makes sense to ask.It doesn't make sense because:
1. The question has been answered several times in this forum. Just do a search using 'bootloop' as keyword in the search box in this forum and you'll find out it has been answered several times.
2. The V20 is more than a year old. It's turning 2 by the end of the year. Bootloops are usual concerns on brand new releases only since few have owned and tried the new phone releases. Also, an issue as serious as a bootloop gets corrected in subsequent production batches so even if it existed and was accepted by LG to be valid, it happens only on the early batches as it gets corrected in later, subsequent batches.
3. This is the V20 forum. It's dominated by satisfied LG V20 owners. Dissatisfied LG G4, LG V10, etc. owners with bootloop experience don't stay here to share experiences. They just move on to other forums/brands.
Ergo, repeating the bootloop issue over and over again here is clearly trolling. It's amazing an almost 2 year old flagship phone still gets trolled regularly. Trolling is supposed to be widespread only on new flagship phones. It only goes to show that the V20 can still compete and hold its ground even when compared to the newest 2018 flagship phones from other brands.

Try searching Google for -'iPhone X bootloop', 'Samsung Note 8 bootloop' and 'Samsung S8 bootloop'.

Does v20 have any bootloop issues at all as it was common with all LG phones and also does it come with pre install dual application Appa?

The most important feature is the headphone quality and it is beyond expectations for a phone.

The 10,000mah extended batteries are too bulky for everyday use but the 6,400mAh extended batteries are just perfect. Or you csn just buy a 6400mAh extended battery case only (very cheap) and place a spare 3200mAh OEM V20 battery in the case. That way, you can retain the V20's original back cover and still attach the extended battery case where you can store the spare battery. That way, you'll always have the fully charged spare battery in your phone case and never forget it.
