Game over for anyone who thinks they're going to use a V20 for more than 2 years because it gets worse over time. My G4's screen had terrible ghosting/retention by the 15 month mark.

Anonymous, 07 Sep 2017Never had an android phone that gets slower as the years go by. I believe the lag is primarily... moreALL phones slow down over time because there is degradation of the NAND memory that doesn't allow it to operate as fast when it was brand new. It degrades faster when the phones memory is almost full. It won't degrade to the point where it doesn't work at all (well, maybe over decades of time) but it does become noticeably less efficient after years of use. This is a given and scientific fact, google it.
Then there's the software issue, especially if 2-3 years from now your V20 is still stuck on Android 7.0 (very possible!) you will find newer apps slowing your phone down. LG's servers can detect how many V20's are out there and if there's not a wide enough spread then you can kiss updates good-bye. You can already see the V20 is definitely not on LG's priority list for updates.
bought this phone 2 days ago. for some reasons, my IR blaster isn't working. does anyone have the same issue? what did you do?
the best phone in my opinion,
loads of rom

For COC gaming, it depends on how many hours you play daily and whether or not you use battery saver mode for the game. If you are concerned of gaming battery life, get a spare battery and charger for the V20 so you can swap batteries when it is low and play as much as you want.

Hey, Guys I am from India and I am planning to buy this phone, but I am a fan of led screens and want to know the quality of the colour reproduction - is it vibrant or dull, also the contrast etc . Are the colours saturated or dull I want to know, please reply. Also how is the working of the IR blaster. Does it support all setup boxes etc from India and is the IR range good enough?

(All phones heat up to some degree but no overheating). Camera is excellent if you know what aperture priority, shutter priority and f number is. The price for me is excellent (now that it has dropped) comparef to the features it offers.
Inquire LG, 06 Sep 2017How about not using mobile data, how long will the battery last?Call and text only should last you a day or more. Heavy gaming without mobile data, will not last you 8 hrs.

Just change transfer settings from the notification shade: there are at least 3 options: charge only, file transfer (MTP), photo transfer. The V20 has 2 additional options: power supply and midi device. Android has PC file transfer as long as I can remember (jellybean or earlier). If you can't transfer, try with other computers. If the same problem, your phone's micro usb slot is defective, otherwise, you need to check the usb driver installation of your windows PC. It may have conflicts, outdated drivers or other software issues causing the file transfer failure.
Anonymous, 07 Sep 2017Honestly I think the fact that all phones tend to get slower over time gives them 2.5 to 3 yea... moreNever had an android phone that gets slower as the years go by. I believe the lag is primarily caused by the user's lack of understanding as to what contributes to lag in the Android operating system and how to correct it as more and more apps get installed and uninstalled. Many of the installed apps are notorious for 'running on start up', drawing over other apps, running in the background using data and infesting the phone with pop ups. That's the biggest issue iphone owners tend to tell Android phone owners why they prefer the iphone. Unfortunately, the slow down is just not true. It's due to the user's insufficient understanding on how to optimize the system and what causes the lag. I actually still have my 2012 Lenovo P770 and still works as 'fast' (by 2012 standards) as it was when it was brand new. The 4GB internal storage limitations and lack of LTE and fingerprint scanner made me upgrade. Right now it is used mainly as a home FM radio as well as a flashlight and a secondary 'landline' call and text phone. It makes for an excellent voice recorder and portable radio and call and text phone as well during trips and outings as it can broadcast FM radio on loudspeaker even without a headphone plugged in. It would have already ended up in the landfill were it not for its huge (by 2012 standards), user replaceable/removable 3500mAh battery. The 'lowly' features (FM radio, big battery) makes it excellent at doing all the remaining things it can still so well even after almost 5 years. I've had several smart phones after it but sold them all or gave them away. It is because I can afford to upgrade, not because they all became sluggish or died by some accident, mishandling /abuse or internal factory failure.
