Own both so here goes...
V20 bigger battery
Better build in terms of the form factor.
Runs a slight bit smoother in terms of loading apps thats ofcourse due to the software optimizations but i personally think ram management is a slight bit faster on the g5. But all round the v20 is the kind supreme between the 2..
[deleted post]Really? Mind telling us worst compared to what phone?
Anonymous, 03 Jan 2018I'm referring to battery life as in what you can get from one charge without using extra batte... moreYes agreed. There's even zerolemon 4000mAh for the newest iPhone X. But it's not quite the same as true battery replacement in phones with removable batteries. The difference will be noticeable once the sealed battery degrades. It's like using a spent/worn-out battery (phone's built in battery) in series with a good battery (zerolemon).

Hyperion 6400mAh extended battery would be a nice daily battery pack to replace the V20's 3200mAh battery. Alternately, you can simply buy a cheap extended battery casing without the extended battery like the Hyperion and use it to store your spare OEM battery. That way, you always have the spare battery with your phone and you won't forget to bring it with you all the time.

I am interesting to buy lg v20. I saw there are many opinion said battery life is short, and heating problem. But the main issue is still there, it is boot loop. So any one can help me with some advice! Is v20 at risk of this serious issue!? And is there any version different than others!? Please help,,,,

AnonD-727506, 01 Jan 2018does it last at least a day? I work in an office I am always near charging... does anybody kno... moreMy V20 lasts a typical day most of the time. It's around 15% by 5PM on most days. It's only on those days where there's not much work to do other than use the phone for marathon browsing on mobile data that it doesn't really last a day. It's usually dead by 3PM in that case and for that reason, I always have a spare battery ready. Also, my Lux dash app helps with battery life as it adjusts screen brightness automatically depending on ambient lighting. My V20 lasts longer than before the app was installed. (I didn't notice I tend to adjust brightness manually and tend to leave settings at high when coming from outside and getting indoors). The Asus Zenfone 4 pro is relatively new and has larger sealed battery than most flagships (3600mAh) except Huawei's Mate series, but in exchange, it has FM radio plus high quality audio playback. You may want to consider it if its available in your area. It doesn't have IR blaster though but it has snapdragon 835.

I cannot believe that with all the myriad models out there, if you set a few limiting conditions- phablet size, reasonable battery, 3mm classical jack, FM antenna, range from upper-middle class to flagship, you almost run out of options. I would seriously think of the Huawei had it not been for their absolute ignorance of the FM radio. Why is that? all flagship owners only rely on mobile streaming? Samsung 8 got no FM either...maybe I will have to ditch the FM requirement and carry my old Xperia Pro as a radio...
you got any suggestions of alterntives? thanks

I don't own one but was seriously considering buying one until I uncovered such facts, but primarily I didn't like how dim the screen was when set to anything below 85%.
The V20 was released in Fall 2016 and it's now 2018 so I wouldn't be buying a V20 for "exclusivity" since I don't think anyone's going to be envying you.

AnonD-727506, 31 Dec 2017Guys give me some advice pls. My phone got damaged, I would seriously consider the lg v20. How... moreIf Amazon offers a reliable refund or return policy can address warranty issues that may arise, then I personally would go for it. From my experience, as long as you receive a truly sealed box brand new unit, there's high possibility you'll get a fully functional unit with no defects/problems whatsoever as the V20 has been around for quite some time. It's usually the very first batches of production that encounter problems and these get corrected in newer batches. Based on your needs, no new flagship phones come with FM radio other than the Asus Zenfone 4 pro. Now if battery life matters to you, you only have 2 options; phones with sealed batteries that should have at least 4000mAh in them (Huawei Mate series) or those with only 3000mAh+ but have removable batteries (older LG flagships). So essentially, you have to make compromises: A brand new but older model phone, or newer phone models that either lack FM radio or have less flexibility in the battery department. If you can be sure that you will be getting a brand new, sealed box LG V20 from Amazon and you have a safety net (good refund/return policy in case Amazon does not deliver you a brand new, sealed unit), then I'd say go for it.

Guys give me some advice pls. My phone got damaged, I would seriously consider the lg v20. However, this phone had a release in Sept 16 ! does it make any sense at all? I am an audiophile, I would love the premium DAC output. I need a phablet as my eyesight is bad and have problems with a five inch screen. I was hesitating between LG 6 (is available in my country from reputable sellers, I dislike the low battery life) and Huawei Mate 9 ( like extreme processing power and build, dislike heavy weight and lack of FM radio - I sometimes do need it.) To get the v20, I found some British dealers on uk amazon, I try to read the reviews of the shops and find a seller who has good reputation. One reputable seller in my country has just put the V20 on its website, however with unknown date of starting sales. In general LG is neglecting our market, and is behaving strangely so to get this product I have to rely on shady supply. What would you advise? thanks . I like that the V20 is some kind of a strange fish, with special outlier features that I like, it is not for every body, and in fact very few people in my country (Czech Republic, Central Europe) will cross the barriers to get this phone, so there will be a strange kind of excusivity in it. But, is it really sensible to buy something that is so outdated? I would pay more than 400 UK pounds for it... and in android phones, a Sept 2016 product is almost a vintage product... I even considered Samsung s8 plus, in an installment deal, but flagship phones do not have FM radios anymore, samsung doesnt either...what do you think? would you risk an amazon purchase? thanks a lot.

I like second screen and for me its not just gimmick. Also dedicated dual sim is very important for me. And removable battery too, as i always use zerolemon triple capacity since samsung s3, s4, s5 and now i use lg v10.
Now I am considering to upgrade my v10 to v20.
