One thing i like is the smart doctor with optimizations and battery saving options
Also received the OTA update to Oreo on my non-B&O V20 (-AME-XX variant). Highest bit rate for 4K videos has been downgraded from 64Mbps to 52Mbps. It's likely going to cause video quality degradation while consuming less storage space. A few changes in the user interface, but not much different from Nougat. At least the security update is now November 1, 2018 (previously, it was January 1, 2018). Overall, the only significant thing the Oreo update brings is the November 2018 security patch. Fluidity and battery life about the same before and after the Oreo update.

Update done, it's Oreo 8.0.0, build number OPR1.170623.032, SW version V20a-AME-XX. It retained my highly customized menu system, generally phone is behaving ok, no surprise. Some UI changes very evident, will use for next few hours and update anything I notice.
I just got a SW update message on my H990DS V10h-AME-XX version V20 phone. Update message shows version as v20a-NOV-21-2018 and has 1860.69 MB size. Have started downloading using LG bridge. I will update back once done.
I received Oreo Update (I hope so. because this update size is 1.8GB) right now - LG V20 AME version. it's downloading
Just got Oreo update on my V20 version H990DS AME
!!!! URAAAAAAAAA !!!!!
do NOT BUY the 918- if you are not a T-Mobile customer!!!!
I got scammed by ebay-seller, who said 100% working with my german SIM Card (EPlus)-
That was a lie.
The phone gets a network-lock.
You can unlock it temporary 5x in 12 moths- bullsh!t.
F-ck T-Mobile- best phone- biggest shtti scammer TMobile.
Complete unlock is NOT possible.
I asked TMobile USA, the ebay seller is completly retarded, they dont know what my problem is.
TMobile unlock services DO NOT (!!!) work- any of them. I tried many tmobile unlock services.
For fish sakes, dont buy the 918 if you do not live in USA and have TMobile- you'll get biggest depression like me if you waste your money.
Now I can use it for 5 months, than I will buy maybe the other 918 versions cause the phone as it as, is absolutely beautiful and nice.
Blacklisting LG. I'll not consider another phone for at least next 10 years. I'm done. No update, no me!
Anonymous, 17 Dec 2018pre order this phone when its launched, now this phone have so many problem like : screen gh... moreThe screen ghosting can be fixed using Blue Light filter app. The damaged DAC due to improper connection (AUX speaker connections that don't have sufficient pre-amplification, always result to disaster). It is the job of the auxiliary speaker's built in amplifier to amplify the sound. If the speaker can't do it with sufficient volume even at it's max settings, do not compensate its failure to amplify adequately by jacking up the V20's volume. It's courting disaster as you have learned.
pre order this phone when its launched, now this phone have so many problem like :
screen ghosting(its really bad), broken dac for some reason ( connect it to speaker with aux and now there is some white noise everytime i listen to music) also its lag too
as a owner of lg g2 and v20, i will never looked back to LG.
Trampakoulas, 14 Dec 2018My first LG was the P880 4X HD (first 4 core phone that released back in 2012) and since then ... moreYou have done the right thing, and I'm intended to do the same , get rid of V20 and switch to another brand.Just because of Lg's poor update service I hate it them now.
My first LG was the P880 4X HD (first 4 core phone that released back in 2012) and since then I had the G3, Stylus 3 and two V20. Last month sold one of the V20 and jumped off the train and got a Note 9. I WILL NEVER EVER touch an LG again.
LG recently updated the V20's 'LG mobile switch' app in both the - ESA-XX and - AME-XX H990DS variants. Clearly, LG wants V20 owners that still don't have Oreo to make a mobile switch to a newer model LG phone. (App is not compatible with non-LG phones). It is a tell-tale sign that the remaining V20 H990DS models still on Nougat will never get Oreo.
Congratulations LG for making it to the GUINNESS book of world records: The FIRST and ONLY android phone in FLAGSHIP category to NEVER RECEIVE any major or even just a minor ANDROID SOFTWARE version update. Good luck LG. Your Mobile division won't be around long with this kind of service.
Vegetarianwino, 13 Dec 2018Bought the LG V20 from Amazon a couple of weeks ago. This phone is awesome! Because of the rum... moreIt really is, friend. Type lg v20 replacement battery on ebay and enjoy ;) the Snapdragon 820 will not get outdated any time soon either.
Bought the LG V20 from Amazon a couple of weeks ago. This phone is awesome! Because of the rumors of bootloops I decided to purchase the phone refurbished hoping that that issue had been addressed. I absolutely love this phone. It's very fast, the little info screen turns off when in your pocket, bookbag, or faced down. You don't need to turn the screen on to toggle the Wi-Fi or turn on thr flashlight. It has FM radio and infrared on all of its models. This, folks, is the perfect phone.
