Rimac , 30 Nov 2017Since seven months ago I'm using the H990DS (Global - Dual SIM) in Barcelona, totally pleased. Yes, I know that this model works, but for me it's expensive, that's why I'm thinking about buying one from China, those models are more affordable for me.

At most, it is a newer, more powerful release but not equivalent in terms of features list and overall versatility. It has just too many downgrades over the V20 in terms of features which are very important to me and to most users if they only tried to spend time customizing them to make life easier. The sealed battery I can only accept if it were significantly larger like my Xiaomi phones: 4100mAh, 4800mAh and 5300mAh, but no, it's a marginal improvement (3300mAh) over the V20's 3200mAh. Between always carrying a spare battery vs carrying a bulky charger (mandatory for my moderate to heavy usage pattern for any phone with less than 4000mAh battery), I'm choosing the spare battery anytime. It's less bulky and you don't need any charging time. When the battery loses capacity with time or goes bad, you can also just throw it away and buy a new one. IR blaster. The lack of it in the V30 is a huge downgrade for me. From the moment I wake up to the moment I sleep, it's controlling everything at my home and workplace. Dedicated sd card slot. I'm always on dual sim and all my purchased HD Google play movies are all downloaded offline (2-3gb/movie) on my sd card. My 20GB offline kiwix encyclopedia is also on sd card. So are my favorite mp3 collection and my personal photos and videos captured by my V20. My work backup files are also on sd card (encrypted) so no need to waste data on cloud backups. A dedicated sd card means no storage problems and instant access to Wikipedia even when I'm out of town photographing waterfalls in an area with no data or cellular signal. The 16:9 screen makes photo feeds in facebook bigger, webpages, news and youtube videos viewing more pleasant. I will stick with the 16:9 screen vs 18:9 or wider anytime, unless I'm left with no choice.

Have you seen or held a v30? I have and it's so much better looking and feeling in the hand than the v20. And then screen is much much nicer which I consider to be the most imporant feature of all because you're always looking at it.

V20 is a masterpiece, all departments full capacity and 350$ is fabulous, but V30 has inspite of better specs, never seen light of the day! It's already faded before launch. Sometimes is big mishaps to hide from public for embarrasment.
I just have 2 days with this phone and is absolutely a excellent performer. No complaints so far. Camera, Audio, Battery Life & Screen Resolution are very good. And all this for $358 its a bargain!!!!!!!!

I'm planning to buy a second unit because it's truly a gem, a one-of-a-kind phone which has almost everything you could ask for. It's the only one which has a learning remote control. All my other phones have IR blasters but it's the only one I can use to control absolutely ALL my appliances including my aircon. The screen white balance is infinitely customizable so it won't matter if you find the display color tint not to your liking out of the box. It's a lovely 16:9 ratio so you get to see larger photos both from Facebook feeds and camera roll, and larger full screen videos and overall, a vastly more pleasant reading experience than those NarrowView 18:9/18.5:9 bezelless displays. The removable battery, slimport 4K video out support, analog FM radio, dedicated sd card slot with dual sim, excellent audio capabilities, full manual camera and video controls, very high quality photos and videos, drop resistance, lte-only mode, external battery charging, analog audio jack support, ultrawide photos and videos, etc. are things I'm gonna truly miss as newer flagship phones have lost their multifunctionality and versatility (no more headphone jack, no more FM radio, no more IR blaster, no more dedicated SD card support, no more removable battery, no manual camera/video controls, no ultrawide photo and video capability, no more browsing/reading/movie friendly 16:9 screens).
I have had the V20 for about a year now and it has been the most reliable smartphone I have ever had. I have owned these Android phones Samsung Moment, Galaxy S, Galaxy S3, HTC Evo, HTC Evo4gLTE, Note2, Note3, Note4, Note 7 and now the V20. Got the V20 when I returned the Note 7. My Samsung phones always slowed down and lagged like crazy after a while. The Note 7 was already lagging like crazy after just 2 weeks. The V20's wide angle camera is the most useful camera feature on the market the second screen allows for control of streaming services or on device music with the main screen off and gives notifications and access to settings, flashlight and certain apps with the screen off. The removable battery is just an awesome feature nothing like being able to just pop in a new charged battery and charge your other one in the battery charger. The camera features for manual mode are awesome and while the Note 7 took a little bit better pictures the V20 has the most outstanding 4k video recording I have ever seen on a phone. When I got my V20 I still had a Note 7 and compared the screens side by side. I was initially disappointed with the V20 with the factory screen settings but by turning on comfort view and then using screen color adjustment in accessibility settings under vision I was able to dial the V20 screen in to look almost identical to the Note7 screen I had beside it. The quad dac is amazing if you have some high impedance head phones it really works great. Last week I went and bought a Note 8 and returned it the next day because the V20 screen looked better in many areas because of Samsung dimming the screen in certain apps like The Play Store, Browsers and settings menu. Even the home screen is limited in brightness all in attempt to save battery life. The result was that my V20 screen looked better in all of the areas that Samsung applied their selective screen dimming. The Note 8 screen did look better in apps that were not limited by the dimming but in the browser for instance the V20 had a nice pure white background while the Note 8 had a yellow tint. I returned the Note 8 the next day because I liked the V20 better. The V20 feels better in the hand to me and that stupid curved screen on the Note8 is an accident waiting to happen because the cases can not come up and around the panel. I have used all the flagship phones available in the U.S. and have come to the conclusion that the V20 is the best phone on the market even now Nov. 2017.
I just got the phone 3 days ago and it is a big disappointment for me. Battery life is poor and cell signal drops frequently. I will never ever use LG phone again.
- The screen size and its aspect ratio 16:9. It's bigger than other 18:9 or 19:9 phones.
- The image quality of the screen. The color isn't very vibrant like iPhone X, but it's quite crispy and bright.
- The little second screen on the top. It's very practical and useful.
- The microSD card.
- The possibility to turn the phone on/off with double-touch.
- It's not slow, but I find not fast enough at my taste.
- Battery. It's not terrible, but I think it's below average, maybe due to large screen and high resolution.
- The speaker. Sound is just fine, nothing amazing, but it's not loud enough.
Neutral (personal need):
- the swappable battery means that the phone can't be charged wirelessly and be waterproof.
- A lot of people praise the sound quality, the DAC, it's good but I find nothing extraordinary.
