Updated H990DS with September security patch yesterday; V10g-AME-XX, in UAE. So far no change found with respect to the old version. Guys any idea whether this version support VoLTE/ VoWiFi?
Azam, 11 Oct 2017What is second screen ??Second screen is not really a second screen actually. It is simply entire screen programmed to work as two different sections independently. But I assume this is not what you are asking for.
Second screen, in my opinion, is a very useful feature, that allows you to put your 5 most favorite, most used apps always in one place that you can easily have access to without going in to apps list. It also allows you to access quick settings like Turn on and off wifi, bluetooth, volume, camera, flashlight and LG's capture mode, without swiping down to the toggles.
Other things to show up there are most recent 5 apps, upcoming events, music player and your customized signature, whatever you want to write.
you can turn on and off of any of these options, and you can also, turn the second screen on and off, or choose to have it on and off when main screen is on and off.
Also you can see your notifications as messages and calls.
Lets say you are talking to someone on the phone, and you need to check something on Google or calendar etc, your call automatically goes to second screen.
If you have a wallet case with second screen window, it is really fun to use this phone.
Loveforever, 12 Oct 2017Hi any improvement. .............? Or anything change Works fine and smoothly so far. If anything noted, will be reported.
Can I ask are all the removable battery fan boys in India? I suppose that with over 20% of the population there doesn't have stable access to electricity I could see the benefit being able to swap batteries if my electricity supply was unstable.

The batteries ha... moreLol another removable battery fan boy. So tell me removable battery fan boy, what's your next phone going to be? I don't think there's a single flagship this year with one.
There are a lot of pros and cons to both sides so stop making it sound like non-removable batteries are so bad.
I wonder how many v20 owners here have actually bought extra batteries or are they just all talk. My last two LG phones had removable batteries and I used both for close to 2 years and never bought a battery for either. If you need or like removable batteries that's great but you need to understand most consumers just want the longest possible battery life on one charge without having to carry around power banks OR extra batteries, myself included, and the way to achieve that is by sealing the battery inside.
It has nothing to do with planned obsolescence, you know what most phone manufacturers do to ultimate make their phones feel obsolete? -- They stop supporting them (no more updates) and you geniuses haven't figured out yet that because you all got your v20's for less than half the original MSRP that I'm sure LG is going to abandon ship supporting this phone. 6 months from now you'll all be 1) crying and angry at LG for no update to oreo or 2) crying and angry at LG how the oreo update wrecked your v20 and you want to downgrade back to nougat.

Many people are paying costly phones through carriers and is disappointing the battery discharge or other inconvenience with the phone unpaid.
Anonymous, 21 Sep 2017You are so paranoid. The real reason why manufacturers like non-removable batteries are:
1... moreYou are so incompetent. The non-removable battery is planned obsolescence.
The batteries have limited lifespan. When the non-removable battery in your phone won't hold a charge, what will you do? The water resistance and power banks won't save your phone. Going to the service to replace the battery is nothing more than trouble. If you send it to the service, they will open the unibody phone and damage/break it. You will also lose water resistance after that. It is much more expensive than a new battery, and you have to wait days/weeks till you get back your phone. If the manufacturer ends the support for the phone, they won't replace the battery anymore. You are dependent on them.
Another advantage of removable battery is the 3rd party battery option, because 1. you can replace the stock battery to a 2x 3x bigger extended battery, 2. you still can buy new battery for your phone even if the phone manufacturer discontinues the support and replacement battery for the phone.
The non-removable battery phones are not stronger structurally.
The non-removable battery expose the users to danger. If Note 7 had removable battery, it would save the phone, the users and Samsung itself. The users could easily pull out the faulty battery and prevent fires but keep the phone. And when Samsung released the good battery, users could simply get the new battery.
Azam, 11 Oct 2017What is second screen ??The second screen for LG means that there is a small shortcut screen that allows you to access to apps easily, although it is limited to 5 apps that can be placed there. It also allows you to display your email address at the second screen.
Gibbo, 11 Oct 2017WhatÂ’s the difference between the H990 model and the H990DS/N?
CheersThe model H990DS is Dual SIM.

Bob, 07 Oct 2017Marketing. That's it. That's why celebrities don't appear in the media holding in their hands a V20. Better. Less money spended in advertising reverting to selling price.
Bob, 07 Oct 2017Marketing. That's it. That's an excuse as the LG v20 got lots of press and even extra attention as being seen as the logical replacement for Note 7 owners having no choice but to send their devices back to Samsung. Interesting had the Note 7 never had the recall the v20 probably would have totally bombed.
Fyi carriers where I am are still selling/offering the v20 on plans.
