no matter what other phone i try i always return to my v20. the camera and audio are the best selling points. battery is more than ideal but not great. and lg qslide apps are the one reason why i mostly return to my lg phones
I just posted this in the Pixel XL review Opinions. It was fitting to repost here.
Wife and I originally bought Note 7s. After the swap outs we bought home tested S7 Edges. No dice.... The Notes were simply a better phone but had their quirks as do all phones. My thinking was I would never find a phone to equal the Notes, and that was true of the Edges. Wife eventually got a Pixel XL and I a V20. We traded use of the phones to compare, with the intent of possibly trading in the one we didn't like as well.
Conclusion is: We both liked both phones, though I preferred the V20 even better than the Notes. (Use the right stylus on the V20, and it works just about as well as a Note.) Wife at this point rated both dead even. She didn't have a preference, but liked both better than the Notes.
I really liked the Pixel XL, but in terms of everyday use the V20 won out. None of the "cons" listed by the writers are actually notable to us. However personally, the one thing I didn't like on the V20 was the back side, on/off button with fingerprint reader. Also the Google VR does not work on the V20 as once stated, early on, that it would.
Wife decided to keep the Pixel XL for herself and I kept the V20. We were both wore out from the hassles of trading so many phones.
In reading the review on the Pixel XL here, the writers got at least 1 thing wrong. The Pixel XL is in NO WAY louder with its' external speaker than the V20. Nowhere close. Nor is it close in speaker quality when connected to decent speakers. We know this for fact as we have compared both phones. Wife agrees though, the speaker phone loudness didn't matter to her. She was more concerned and impressed with the connected speakers.
NotSoSuperKing, 03 Feb 2017Asus Zenfone AR That is another phone...that's not released yet. Looks nifty, not sure what it has to do with the opinion you replied to.
love this phone overall. No downside at all. It doesn't matter if the phone is not water proof. I can always buy a waterproof case anyway. This phone has everything I need. From the elegant and unique design along with ergonomic feel, it has very crisp and immersive display 5'5', great battery life and the battery is removable fyi

Good sensor also make sense. Just take for example samsung s7/s7 edge. They only got 12mp. But u will see their cam is a beast.
Bought the LG V20 to replace my always dying iPhone 7 Plus. Gotta say i am impressed.

Chumlee, 01 Feb 2017This past Friday and Sunday I got this message on my LG V20 screen while my phone was on but n... moreSo I did some additional research. Apparently this can be an actual message from Google. (It happened quite often on the Nexus 5X and 6)
What you need to do is correct the files in your system partitions. You can do this with a Rescue OTA. Applying a Rescue OTA does not require unlocking your boot loader, or affect your warranty status, or erase any of your user data.
I found instruction for installing ADB/Fastboot from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2564453
rescue OTA image (6.0.1 - MTC20F) from here: https://developers.google.com/android/nexus/ota
(Note that the OTA image linked is for Nexus devices...DO NOT FLASH THE V20 with that, you may be able to find one for the V20 though)
One week already running smooth i enjoy reading emails have no regret to buy it recommende as long having option like ir blaster radio and dual sim with premium specification
Anonymous, 01 Feb 2017Sounds like malware to me. potentially ransomware. Thereby no issue in the device itself, so... moreThank you for your response. I have no idea how I could have gotten something like that since I try to keep the phone clean and whatnot.

This past Friday and Sunday I got this message on my LG V20 screen while my phone was on but not being used.
"Your device is corrupt.

Verizon says it should be replaced and showed me other phones, but I really like the V20.
Josephkarthic, 20 Jan 2017Dear V20 users, Does this phone has bootloop issues in the recent updates ? Many users say ... moreSo I have owned 2 lg v10 and both have had boot loop issues. I have been assured that this new v20 will not. Wait and see as they r replacing my v10 with a v20 tomorrow.
Sad Dad, 29 Jan 2017I got this phone for my daughter for xmas....a week later she took it out while it was raining... moreIt is all about where the water gets to, Mine has been dropped in a sink (water running), used in the rain...with no issues. Let one drop get in the wrong place...and poof though.
Anonymous, 29 Jan 2017Is it possible to get the speakers to blow/explode when you keep putting volume on a maximum? ... morenope, not really, but after using it for a long period of time, the speaker might get broken, i had a nexus 7 and i have a galaxy s4 now, and speakers of both phones got broken because i listen to music like 8hours a day on mostly full volume. took more than 2 years to broke those speakers though
