Recent update to April 17 from Dec 16 is an eyewash, no noticeable improvement seen. 7.1.1 Noughat was expected, but invain. No big news of V30 so far, may be sealed battery must, offcourse specs upgrades, but amoled screen is far cry. 400$ is todayÂ’s bargained price in Dubai.

Hope to hear your honest impression & observation, thanks & GOD bless☺♥

I actually used the Network app and another one to change the radios and you are correct. It doesn't work.
I don't have this problem because I plan to go to the Philippines again in a few years and I can bank that they will have 2G and 3G forever. In Baguio, I only got 3G speeds in some parts and 2G in other parts. My V20 under settings does allow me to choose GSM or WCDMA only. 4G only is a different story like you said.
Hi guys I want to buy this phone, I like everything in this phone, but concerned with battery, plz tell me how long it lasts with normal usage, like regular calls, 4g n volte, watsapp fb etc

Just sideload it -
Anybody know how to force the dual sim version of this phone (H990DS) to 'LTE only' mode? I'm in an LTE covered area. The LTE speed is very fast but the signal is weak, which causes the phone to switch to 3G which is horribly slow in my area. Typing *#*#4636#*#* on the dial pad isn't allowed by the phone. The code above is supposed to display the hidden Android menu which allows a multitude of data connection options including 'LTE only'. It works on Sony, Asus, Oppo, Nexus and Xiaomi phones. I'm never buying an LG phone again because of this.
JimSar, 11 May 2017Man i am from greece and i can buy this phone for 450 right now .. Lg service is not longer in... moreJim star, it more than recomemded, but buy a middle east version DS. It is fantastic in all department s. Only while restarting brightness goes to 100%. You have to correct it every time. Recently it was mistakenly updated to April security updates from December 16. Rest its only by chance, LG'S released v20, let's see Traditional is continued.

Rimac , 10 May 2017The IPS LCD technology are not fewer than the OLED. I prefer the colour more natural. With the... moreOh that means it does have that issue. I use iPhone 6s as primary phone which also has ips LCD screen but the quality of the display is different. Its really good and black colour doesn't turns into gray that much. There is very little shift into colour.
I didn't realize how important IR blaster is until this week while housesitting and dogsitting for my parents. They have three different remotes for the living room TV. Sometimes I get confused how to turn it on and how to volume control, but both my LG G5 and V20 are right there to solve it for me.
Sucks that LG removed this feature for the G6. Mark my words, V20 is the best phablet I ever used. I would rather have the V20 over S8+ or iPhone 7 Plus. We GET metal rear AND removable battery. Apple, HTC, and LG are headed to glass again and sealed battery. Possibly no headphone jack from Apple, HTC, and Xiaomi.
V20 is the last of its breed. Check Juan Carlos Bagnell's revisit with this phone on YouTube. He used the V20 to record the video. He said it is simply the best multimedia creator smartphone he has ever used. I wouldn't disagree. This phone is more "special" than the iPhone SE. Shame if the V30 goes sealed battery, no IR blaster, and glass rear. Then V20 would be one of the last true greats.

The V20 I would say has it at about the same amount as the iPhone 7, very little
OLED each pixel is backlit individually, and can fully "turn off" to black.
