Bob, 10 Sep 2017Hi everybody! I'm thinking to buy this phone, i like every spec of it, but im a little confuse... moreI'm tired of hearing about image retention or ghosting and the FAKE NEWS/PUBLICITY it is exclusive to LG phones only.
For the record:
ALL displays, whether IPS LCD or AMOLED have image retention potential. Image PERSISTENCE is tempory while SCREEN BURN is a long term wear and tear of LCD and AMOLED screens and develops over a LONG, LONG time for most users who don't have static screen displays.
It happens faster for some users due to the nature of the apps or games they like to run or play or due to the high contrast user interface of the app or game they may have been using so frequently on their phones or due to their preferred choice of colors and static icon arrangement and static wallpapers they like to display on their screens for extended periods of time. They are accelerated in users who always set MAXIMUM brightness settings most of the time and those who prefer to have their phone displays 'always on' or those who set very long screen time outs (ex. 10min, 15 min).
I REPEAT: The screen burn has LITTLE to do with the LCD/AMOLED display and MORE TO DO with the usage pattern of the user.
In general, IPS LCDs perform so much better than AMOLEDs in terms of LONG TERM screen burn. Both Amoleds and IPS LCDs can have temporary image retention (not the same as permanent screen burn) which can be corrected with change in usage patterns.
TO SUM UP:
Screen burn or image retention happens more frequently to some users than others - REGARDLESS of the phone brand/model they have. It is the usage pattern that affects screen burn the most, not the technology or quality behind the LCD/AMOLED display; also, Amoleds are worse than IPS LCD's in their potential for permanent screen burn/damage but to reiterate: the user's preferences/usage pattern has more effect than the display technology itself.
i am using this mobile last six month.
its great device no anyone issue in this device
Hi everybody! I'm thinking to buy this phone, i like every spec of it, but im a little confused about "image retention" problem that affect its screen. I have a question for those who have this phone since the begining of its selling: Is the image retention a common problem for most of V20 (like bootloop in G4, V10) or doesn't affect all the units?!!!

Best of all, you can always brick your phone during update... Yeaaaa...

Bought another grey 350$ ds from Dubai, By not continue with both for another 5 years.

It's the entire package of features not found in 99% of other curvy flagship phones that made me choose the V20 and recommend it to those who truly value substance and features over fragile, faddish looks. And no, I am not like you who can't afford 2TB cards when they do arrive. I currently have Sandisk 200 GB sdxc card right now on my V20 and it's an authentic one. Not some cheap $18 fake ones sold on ebay that get corrupted even before getting to 1/8th of their supposed rated fake storage capacity. I would have gotten the largest 256gb one if it were available and not overkill for my needs.

2) When they are, I'm sure you're not going to be able to afford it.
I hope no one actually bought a V20 because "it supports micro SD cards up to 2TB". And if you did I sure hope you're not bragging about that "feature" and it's a ridiculous argument if you think it somehow makes your V20 "future proof". Even the LG G3 was boosted as being able to support 2TB cards and 2TB cards still aren't available and who wants a G3 these days?

Otherwise, it is OK. In some third party remote apps like Anymote, you need to make a settings change to make Anymote remote app work. Go to Anymote's app settings, and turn on 'enable alternate ir commands' because it is off by default. The default settings for Anymote will work with Xiaomi phones but not for LG V20.
Anonymous, 08 Sep 2017I have the Mi Max. It doesn't have any Windows PC file transfer issues.When you connect your Mi max to pc, and tried to browse the photos on the phone using your pc, it will not show any files. This is correct right? This being asked in relation to LGV20 if it happens like this too.

You don't have to fill the internal memory to the brim causing slowdowns and bottlenecks as well as accelerated wear and tear. Nand memory is actually very reliable. You can copy, erase, copy and erase for more than 5 years and it shouldn't fail. Unless of course if you accelerate the process by doing the copy to the brim - erase cycle several times a day. No phone internal memory can withstand a month with that kind of abuse.

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.

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.
