None of these are throught. After 9 months, with tone of installed apps, the phone is still sharp fast, doesn't bug at all and has never shown any screen retention.
ladylou, 24 May 2018battery for this phone isn't the greatest battery life even with a new batteryAnother user lacking basic knowledge in how an andoid phone uses battery. Keeps on raising battery issues but ignores the fact that with the V20's removable battery, you can have an equivalent of 10, 000mah capacity battery by bringing 3 original OEM spare V20 batteries or using a third party extended battery. No sealed battery phone can ever beat that. A single OEM V20 battery should give you around 6hrs on screen time which is not excellent but good enough for regular users. If it doesn't last that long even on a new, genuine /OEM V20 battery, then you are a very heavy user and not even a 4000mAh battery will serve your needs. It's that or you just lack basic knowledge of Android's power handling (no basic knowledge to investigate which apps are draining the battery).

You need to learn more about the Android operating system or buy an iphone if you don't even bother to investigate what is wrong with the way you set up and use the phone. It's ironic people complain of the same things - screen retention, laggy operation etc. in Samsung and other flagships as more apps get installed and uninstalled. It's utter lack of basic knowledge of the Android operating system as even entry level phones with midrange processors can run smoothly with a knowledgeable user while under an ignorant user, even the most powerful flagship phones from Samsung and Google can be laggy.

battery for this phone isn't the greatest battery life even with a new battery
As an owner of this device, no software updates, slow, hot and buggy, don't bother even at its low price. Screen retention is awful.

The V20 is the epitome of what an ideal flagship android phone should be: a true smartphone with extensive features set and designed for maximum versatility and longevity without spending wastefully on celebrity endorsements making the phone a reasonably priced no nonsense product of the best smartphone technology can offer.

Nevertheless, the gener... moreThe iphones, in particular, the iphone X, are luxury oriented /premium/prestige smartphones first above everything else. Many buy them even to the extent of sacrificing their basic necessities for them simply because of the prestige of owning one. To them, owning an expensive phone (iPhone) promoted and owned by many Hollywood and music icons makes them feel just like them - privileged and affluent even though it costs 3 times their monthly income and never mind if they don't even have a decent house or a car or can't always pay for their rent on time. To them, owning an iphone is a must, because it is a sort of compensation mechanism for their actual social status - just average or just barely above middle income range. They don't want others to look at them as belonging to the masses or the under privileged, which can only afford mostly very cheap or midrange android phones. Somehow, Google's Pixel phones, Samsung's flagship phones and Huawei's flagship phones are copying from Apple's book/marketing strategy of promoting prestige and brand image first. However, in the end, Apple will still have the edge because it has an exclusive mobile operating system (ios) and app ecosystem (Apple appstore, iTunes) not shared by dirt cheap phones. Google's Pixel phones, Samsung and Huawei's flagship phones all use Android operating system which is the same operating system used by the cheapest smartphones in the world. Using android doesn't give a convincing impression of true exclusivity, true prestige and luxury and true premium experience if the same operating system is being used and ALSO experienced by owners of dirt cheap phones. No amount of Pixel phone Hollywood or artist promotions, Huawei's extensive EMUI skinning or Samsung's Touchwiz skinning can escape the fact that they still are 100% android underneath which is the same operating system used by dirt cheap, low quality android phones. That's not exactly good for brand prestige and luxury image and so Pixel phones, Samsung flagships and Huawei flagships are perceived by others as simply trying hard iphone imitations/copycats even if all the three smartphone flagshio brands are truly superior to the iphone from a specs, features, experience, and external looks standpoint.

We know well that phone prices are not necessarily related to the quality or the features. LGV20 is not the only good phone with not so good nor longlasting sales. Furthermore, there are many people, like myself who buy models when they are one year old. The price is better, the child diseases survived, long term reviews available etc. Paying 800-1000 EUR for the phone (whichever) is ridiculous, regardless how much money you have.

SOT from 40% - 5% is indicative of bad or failing battery if there are no battery draining apps running in the background. It's a good thing you can just buy a new OEM LG V20 battery for so cheap. If it were sealed, you'll have to throw away your phone like what you do with the flagships of today with sealed batteries. Or pay for battery replacement that costs half the phone's current retail price that you're better off buying a new phone instead.

For 1 and 2, you can try a different AC adapter/head unit that is Qualcomm quick charge 2/3 certified and, also try another high quality usb c cable. For #3, that is, if connection is loose or there is damage to the V20's charging port/charging mechanism, you can opt to buy the official BCK 5200 external battery charging accessory for the LG V20 if you don't want your phone repaired. For #4, you can just buy a new OEM LG V20 battery to replace the defective, non-charging battery.

My last 2 LG devices went something like this:
100-85% : 1 hour SOT
85-65%: 1 hour SOT
65-40%: 1 hour SOT
40-5%: 1 hour SOT
So yeah based on the first hour of use you think wow battery life is great but it drops faster as you use it to the point where you only get 1 hour of SOT out of the last 40%.

In fact LG V20 has very good battery life. I played Colin McRae Rally 2005 with PPSSPP emulator on my V20 at 40-50% screen brightness for 1 hour and it drained only 12% charge from the stock battery. (PSP emulator is one of the most CPU demanding things on a phone.)

The lg V20 is the rightful and capable device to get the "thinQ" features from V30, and this monster should skip android 8.0 to get android 8.1
