Trever, 08 May 2017Which one's good this or the G6?The G6 haven't IR blaster and is unibody, as significant differences.
LG V20 or LG G6 ? i have much money to buy one of it , give me ur opinion pls . THANK YOU
After nearly a week with the V20, still loving it so far. My only qualm is the occasional dropped frames in the UI animation although not as bad as my S7 edge and the lower loudness from the exernal speaker. The G5 is surprisingly louder by a good 25% while the Pixel and S7 edge could also be slightly louder.
V20 just seems a rock solid phone all-around. I like seeing my name + LG V20 with a Philippine flag on top on the second screen. I didn't get it to draw attention but notice people glancing at it from time to time. And I definitely like the display better than my G5. My G5 looks so dull and too cold. V20 is using a better and more colorful panel. And removing the battery is way easier too than the G5.
G5, Pixel, and V20 are by far and wide the best phones I ever owned. S7 edge doesn't even crack my Top 5. Can use G5 and V20 for a very long time thanks to removable battery. I was talking to my stepfather and brother which also both own the S7 edge. They hate that curved display and laggy nonsense too.
Finally , 696MB update for AME region
will download tonight from WIFI and post updates

My T-Mobile coverage isn't really that great where I live. I much prefer Verizon over them all except they are so expensive. I go to restaurants in Yorba Linda region and almost every phone gets no signal when I go to Urban Plates except for Verizon.
With my V20 on T-Mobile, the download speeds on LTE seems faster than my Galaxy S7 edge. Almost instant. If I switch back the sim to S7e, I know there will be moments of hesitation. I don't know if because my S7e is a made in Vietnam variant that makes it inferior. But I talked to my brother yesterday who dual wields an iPhone 6s and S7e (work phone) but experiences the same annoying experience with curved display and lag.
Thanks to removable battery, micro-SD slot, IR blaster, FM radio, non-glass rears, great cameras, improved software skin with almost a buttery smooth experience like HTC Sense, solid enough battery life, I feel both G5 and V20 are both the closest phones I would call nearly perfect. And I owned so many over the years including iPhones. G5 and V20 are near the top of Mount Olympus along with the Google Pixels.
Hi there. I'm shocked how sounds through Bluetooth and loudspeakers. With clearness in the entire frequency range. Comparatively wired, dull.
Savor , 04 May 2017Yeah, no problem.

I think I'll let the v20 price drop a little more which it seems to be doing every day at the moment and then I'll order one :)
Mr Grey, 03 May 2017Thanks for the info Savor as I have seen your posts and you always give lots of useful informa... moreYeah, no problem.
I was using it more today to do my DoorDash. I think V20 is like a G5 Plus or G5 XL. If you love the G5, you will love this one if you like the bigger display.
It isn't as bright as I thought it would be. I still need to adjust it to 70-75% to see anything during the day while indoors. About as bright as the G5. Another thing is the G5 has the louder external speaker. Maybe 20-25% louder. I noticed it during the Google Maps voice navigation. Open your window or have the radio on and you may not hear it so well.
Battery life is a tad better than G5 though. Maybe like 10% longer. Everything is pretty buttery smooth. It is on Nougat 7.0 while I left my G5 with 6.0.1. Need to test the selfie camera. Read the G5 is superior to it. I really like putting a signature on that second display. Feels so personalized for me.
Overall, I would put it behind my G5 and Pixel among favs but very close to both. I just am biased towards the G5 because I got it first and prefer the size. I got the smaller Pixel after and it is the smoothest Android experience I ever had. But I can see the V20 surpass my Pixel over time thanks to the removable battery, micro-SD slot, IR blaster, and FM radio.
Great phone. You won't be disappointed and you will probably enjoy it far more than a Galaxy S7 edge or S8+ thanks to the flat screen, wide lens, smoother skin, metal rear that's easy to remove, etc. Edge phones are overrated af. LG flagships from last year are still practical af for the long term.
Barring any bootloops, I can see myself using a G5 and V20 for a very, very long time well into the mid-2020's. No degraded, sealed battery that bulges to worry about.

Obviously I am importing it if I get one so I won't have a UK lg warranty but Wonda themselves have a 1 year warranty on the products they sell anyways and so far I can't really find any other phone that has what I want besides the v20.
The v20 just might be the phone I will soon get to replace my G5.

I think my silver G5 is a tad more sensitive to touch but the V20 is way better than my titanium silver S7 edge for texting. I just barely got my essential apps recently via Bluetooth transfer from the G5.
I tested the cameras real quick and the V20 seems to have punchier colors. Maybe a tad oversaturated display or maybe because my G5 screen is too dim and colder. Battery seems to be better on the V20 as well although the G5 is quite underrated for real usage especially with streaming videos.
I think if you miss the big screen, then V20 is the perfect choice since if you love your G5, V20 is a bigger screen version of it. Screen is also noticeably brighter. Needed the G5 to be at 70% to see anything during the day. I really like that second display on top. It says my name with LG V20 in Roboto font and the Philippine flag.
If you know someone in the USA, try to get the T-Mobile variant as they only sell it for $480. Typing on mine so far and pretty great so far! I would put it only behind G5 and Pixel because the phone is quite tall. G5 and Pixel are just more comfortable to hold. But if that is your thing, it could be #1 for you. Definitely better media consumption and typing experience with the V20.
Love LG. They will continue to get my money if they offer removable battery. No interest in G6 because it lacks it.
