Some with more, some with less, but ALL HAVE IT. I had a Huawei, several Xiaomis, Several Lenovos, Asus, Samsung and two LG V20's. It's noticeable on my B&O V20 but not at all on my non B&O V20. It's also not noticeable under ordinary circumstances in my all the other phone/tablet brands I mentioned above but, yes, it's there in ALL OF THEM. The way to see it is to use LCD testing where plain colored grays of varying luminance are displayed on-screen. Again, it's temporary. If you are OC about temporary screen retention, and get angry at the sight of one even if it is barely visible and only for a short time (and has no permanent effect on the screen or its longevity, then my advice is to NOT to buy the V20. Get another smartphone with IPS LCD, preferably those with full HD only. They have the least visible temporary screen retention.

My g4 st... moreMy V10 got some minor taskbar and notification ghosting after 6 months or so, but what I've seen on the V20 is much stronger and started sooner (~2 months and worsening.) Random parts of pages sometimes ghost onto dark backgrounds, and there are almost always imprints of taskbar icons as well on the top as well as bright bars (sometimes solid, sometimes fuzzy like a much wider version of light bleed if that makes sense) on the sides if the app/background in use is dark but not outright black. The ghosting doesn't show on true black.
If you use primarily light-colored apps and backgrounds it might not be much of an issue, but if you prefer dark modes it'll get annoying pretty fast once it starts occurring.
It's really a shame. The V10 was the best-feeling phone I ever had, and the V20 isn't too far behind. But the poor battery life and ghosting are a deal-breaker in my opinion.

Can you name some other products where this is a frequent issue? I'm genuinely curious, I'd like to feel better about LG's quality control.

I not comfortable if I see something on my phone that it shouldn't be there. My g4 started image retention after 6 months, I only use it for music player. I bought LG v10 and on 2nd day after 1 hour facebook & messenger consumption i noticed keyboard ghosting. my 8 month s8 doesnt show anything.

All have it to varying degrees. This is what I said. Now, if the temporary screen retention becomes a permanent BURN IN, that is, even if you have the phone turned off when you sleep at night and still see the ghost/retained images when you turn on the phone in the morning, then that is NOT NORMAL in an LCD display. It may be 'normal' wear and tear in an amoled/oled/p-oled display.

I don't know what you're buying that makes you think this kind of issue is normal for an LCD.
keira, 11 Jul 2018does this phone suffers from image retention?Yes. It started after a couple of months on mine (got it at the beginning of March) and seems to be getting worse.

The very slow shutter and low ISO used by the iPhones cause motion blur and poor focus. Here, see for yourself (pay particular attention to Sponge Bob, the dollar bill and the donkey) :

Even 2017 and 2018 still no match except for ip7,ip8 and X!. Pixel htc even for G7 and V30 still not good enough for beating v20 photo quality.
keira, 11 Jul 2018does this phone suffers from image retention?Temporary screen retention, yes. All LCD panels do, in varying degrees. However, you should remember it is not the same as the PERMANENT screen burn in frequently seen in amoleds/oled displays. The former (in LCD displays) goes away when display is off for a while (back to zero % retention everytime) while in the latter (in amoled/oled displays) it stays permanently imprinted and increases in total screen area with time.

Anonymous, 11 Jul 2018i just got a security update july 2018 i think oreo is not happeningYes, you're probably right. A July 2018 security update, an unusually long six months update after the last security update of January 2018 can only mean Oreo is not coming soon (if ever). If it does come, I suspect it will be further delayed to November 2018. It's probably a sales strategy by LG to release the LG V40 first (likely in September or October 2018) ahead of the Oreo update for the V20 in November 2018 to ensure better sales for the newer LG V40 flagship. Many V20 owners by then, may consider buying the LG V40 instead, if it is already released before the Oreo arrives for their V20 (which will be 2-years old by then). LG will then have a valid reason NOT to update the V20's Oreo further to Android Peanut butter the following year as the V20 will be beyond the normal 2-year software support period. Certainly makes sense for LG, delaying Oreo for the V20 to the second year to be able to provide only one Major Android software update for the V20. But NO, I won't buy an LG V40 ever especially since it will have the same reduced/dumbed down features as the V30: no removable battery, no ir blaster, no dedicated sd card slot, an ugly 18:9 notched, screen burning amoled screen, and without slimport and without an 'LTE only' feature.
