Inquire LG, 11 Sep 2017I hope LG will release a phone 5.2" and removable battery. Any idea if they will have one? Wh... moreYou wanna know why? Coz this is how business goes! If a person uses a phone that has a non-removable battery, there's a high chance that this person will buy a new phone after a year or two. Why? Coz they won't get the same SOT as what they got when their phone was new. Also, it's not that easy to have the battery replaced esp. when the latest flagship is out. Why? Coz manufacturers will no longer sell you batteries so you'll be forced to buy their new $800 - $1000 phone. They'll probably tell you replacement batteries are out of stock. You see, the difference between the latest flagships and it's predecessors is only huge on paper but not that noticeable in real life usage. With this said, who do you think will buy new flagships if people could just spend $20 on new batteries?

Bought this phone couple months ago, and i dont regret my decision at all. The audio, display, performance, camera. Everything is charming as hell.
This Phone is amazing but feels short in one area: GSM reception inside buildings. In comparison, my old Sony Xperia managed this perfectly. As phone feature is my least concern, I can live with it. Improvements area: Unlocking with fingerprint while in charge does not work and they should put a fingerprint reader also in the front, to unlock phone when on a table. Quick charging term is overrated, it is a bit faster but not really quick, but I guess it is the same for all other brands. Sound quality is truely impressive and will put a lot of dedicated Bluetooth speakers to shame. Buy without hesitation for the price if you can live with the above.

Just bought this phone during my trip to South Korea and did not regret my decision even a little bit. Although its 1 year old model but its still powerful. With removable battery, wide angle camera, hifi audio while recording video in full manual....... Simply the best phone ever. I don't even need to connect my powerbank to my phone when the battery is low. Just pop the old ones for the new ones and put the old ones into the cradle to charge with the powerbank so that I don't have to walk around like an idiot with cables dangling around my phone. Its worth the wait for nearly 1 year for me. Loving it to the max!! LG V20 rocks!!!!

The ... moreI don't know about the others but yes, I'd buy the V20 even if it were sold at the price of the Samsung Note 8. The reason is because it is worth to me so much more than the Note 8. I value substance, features, usability, versatility, and longevity up and above branding and fancy looks. The features you consider low-end like the removable battery, ir blaster, dedicated sd card slot and FM radio that are all present in the V20 but largely absent in all other flagship phones from other brands is what makes the V20 truly unique and special. It is the last flagship of its kind to have almost everything you can ask for. It has what it takes that will make it relevant even 5 years from now. I do understand most buyers prefer to prioritize looks, branding and prestige up and above everything else. It is for that reason Samsung and Apple sell more than all the rest and not because they are truly the best in what smartphone technology can offer.
I'm accustomed since youngster at HI-FI stereo systems, now relocated in a room which is not suitable to this purpose the V20 came as a source with high capability and of course don't finish here their capabilities.
This is the only phone that comes up on GSMArena Phone Finder with my prefered features.

The G5 was a failure, even LG admits it greatly under performed and was the main reason their mobile devision lost money last year. The V20 was more successful but not a home run which is also pretty disappointing because once Note 7's were recalled you would've thought V20 sales would have taken off as people didn't have much choice.
You can blah blah blah but sales and popularity tend to not be wrong. If the G5 and V20 are the best phones in the world then why didn't people buy them? And lets be honest why you really bought the V20; because it was cheap, right? If it was 700-800 USD would you have still bought it? Probably not. I get it, bang for the buck. Again, I don't think the V20 is a bad phone, it's a good phone, an above average phone but the best smartphone out there I think not. If you needed it for it's fantastic DAC, video and/or audio recording I'd support you as these are the stand-out features, instead, you're talking about the low features like IR blaster and FM radio which a lot of phones have (like Huawei). I promise you LG will not update the V20 to Android P and and when you get your hopes up when LG releases the Oreo update you will be greatly disappointed to discover the update is not optimized and further reduces the V20's battery life. I hope all V20 owners here are happy with Android N 7.0 because that's as good as it's going to get. LG might release an update but you're not going to be happy after you install it but at least you will get to go to About Phone/Software and see a "8.0" right?
