So I was looking for early to mid range phones and came acroos this giant. It's only $250 in my country (refurbished model). I have these questions,
1) Does the camera shot 1080p 60fps video? How's the quality?
2) Will quad dack work on my cheap $10 earphone?
3) I know the seller, he keep telling me his refurbished phones are as good as new but I'm not sure about that. Should I buy one?
4) How is the selfee camera?
Other alternatives at this price are Oneplus 3, Galaxy s7 active, G5. However, on paper the features (removable battery, second screen, etc.) Look really unique.

It's a battery hungry phone. And u might get the shadow problem when the phone gets a bit hot (shadow problem is the previous screen text might b visible for few seconds in ur new screen). Apart from that if u get good deal for v20, still recommend you. Cz it's my opinion and I too bought it back on Jan 2018.
I use that phone since september and I love it, its fast it and answers to all the need i have for a phone. I often mutitask and it handles it very well. Im a huge phone user as I do everything on that, from social media to banking to gaming. I got to charge it every night because I use it alot but it does last me the whole day!

Try getting to know your device a lot more so you know that many of the disadvantages you listed have lots of alternate remedies/options. Read previous posts here. It contains a wealth of information on how to make your V20 in tip top shape and speed.

The battery has degraded but since it has 4100mAh sealed battery to start with, it still makes it through the day on a single charge (it could go two days when it was new). That's why my advice has been, if anybody buys phones with sealed batteries and want their batteries to still last a day of use even 4 years after, 4000mAh and higher capabilities are the next best option to removable batteries. From my experience with my lenovo P770, complete battery failure (swelling/bloating) can also happen on the fourth year. It's not worth it to buy an expensive flagship phone with sealed battery that do not have at least 4000mAh. If you want to protect your investment, go with removable batteries or sealed batteries with 4000mAh and up capacity. Anything less is only ok if you replace phones yearly anyway.

I get 6hrs 40 min SOT with those settings in my V20. I have a hyperion battery case so no problem really with only 6hrs 40 min SOT on the regular 3200mAh battery. I get double that with extended battery cases.
my phone's version is h990ds .
pros & cons :
-lcd sometimes have a shaddow and gost you can search
-battery life is not good by moderate usage .(google apps and android is related to this issue)
-front camera in comparison with G5 has lower quality.
-hands-free quality is poor .
-very cheap material for usb type c port .
-no wireless charging feature.
-about 3 gig of ram is involved for basic core packages.
-no update for new android version up to this time and remains on 7.0
but advantages :
- Fast battery charging (full charging in 125 mins)
-slim design and very strong body .
- 3.5mm audio jack
-cost affordable in comparison with Samsung s8
-high specifications vs phone's cost

Specialy to those who, due to their jobs, are many times on the road, the case with built in battery NEWDERY, i consider that is "the must".

Solution 1: Go to settings -> general -> apps -> configure apps (three dots at the upper right) -> special access.
Ignore optimizations - turn ON for All apps (default is off)
From the same 'special access' menu,
Draw over other apps - turn OFF for ALL apps. (except messaging)
Other stutter/lag busting remedies:
Enable developer options if not enabled already.
1. Turn ON 'force gpu rendering'
2. Set window animation scale, transition animation scale and animator duration scale to 0.5 for all three.
3. Restart phone.
Download Nova Launcher
Go to nova settings -> look and feel
Set both 'scroll speed' and 'animation speed' to 'fast'.
That's it. Let me know how all these adjustments go on your V20.
I'm not regret to buy this phone. display, camera and build quality are wonderful
however I'm sad because:
No update to 7.1
No update to 8 at least in next months (or maybe never)
Battery life is awful
I used the phone coming to 2 years.
This is one of the most underpowered and low battery life andriod phone I have ever used.
It's really laggy and I will never buy other one on from LG period.
What are the plus points?
Anonymous, 07 Feb 2018You forgot to say it should be law for all phones to have ir blasters.IR blasters and FM radios are vastly different from removable batteries and short-lived screen displays, where early failure (by design or otherwise), will render a phone useless.
