It should have been placed in the corner. A camera placed in the center to achieve a symmetric design prioritizes design over practicallity, because you are barely able to hold your phone in the natural and stamina game controller grip without covering the camera with your fingers. Additionally, you may touch the lens in everyday use. And it gets much harder to use the phone as a desk lamp using a horizontal stand case due to the lower flashlight position (traditionally, the camera Flash is played very near to the camera). And it gets much harder to take horizontal photos sneakily (for example: at school, you have to hold at least half the device over the table for the camera to be higher than the table).
A corner camera is also able to invade into every small corner (for example: under a blanket or a cupboard/fridge).
HTC and Oppo are getting rid of this design flaw slowly.

It won't protect the camera glass from anything, especially from impacts, stresses or presses. Even if the foil is on, the camera glass still can get scratched at the foil cutouts for cameras.
I understand that because you own the phone, you defend the design flaw of V20. But it's still fact that the camera glass is fragile. The best thing you can do is to keep the foil on the camera glass and buy a case that gives a few mm thickness around the cameras.
Of course unfortunately no manufacturer has the brain and IQ to make a case that has sliding door over the camera. I saw only one case with this feature: EyePatch for iPhone. This would be the perfect case for V20.
Maybe I will buy V20 at some time because it is the last phone in the world with removable battery. Unfortunately it is likely that LG will stop using removable battery in G6 in favor of unibody design and glass back, so the primitive sheeple will feel it as "premium". I hope I'm wrong.

The foil does make it seem like separate pieces, however, in the pictures of broken camera glass, that foil is not present, a reviewer even admits to removing it, and that it "was not easy to remove cleanly"
Thereby some reports are kind of bogus, as they remove basic protections on the phone and get a bad result. This foil shields the glass from impacts, and takes the brunt of most to any heat from the LEDs, reducing chances of the breakage. It is still a slightly cheap thing for LG to do, when it shouldn't cost too much more to simply seperate the glass pieces for the cameras, then have 1 overarching piece around them.

Try ordering online or not just at a carrier store. (Usually carriers only keep certain popular phone's cases in store)
I haven't had any camera lens issues...and mine, the camera glass is not 1 sheet...the lenses each are separate, then there is a main sheet around everything, and the LEDs actually stick above the main sheet, with their own cover. There's also a protective film on the main sheet around the rest.
My issue is the camera lens is already cracked. Sprint told me they don't have any cases yet. They way it protrudes putbthe back. If you sit it down its sitting on the lense. Like the phone but to crack it the dame day I bought it is pissing me off
Screen burn ins normally happens on amoled screens. both v10 and v20 all have lcds so I don't think that should be a problem. personally I haven't experienced any sbn's on any lcd screen b4
The phones in the V series come with excellent microphone-units, and should be using XiPH-FLA compression (FLAC audio track codec) as audio track for the videos like the HTC One M10 does.
Can anybody verify that?
For lossy compression, ogg (compatibility) and opus (maximum efficiency) is better suitable, and for videos, H265 or OGV or XAVC-s is more efficient than MP4, but could require slightly more performance from the CPU/GPU units for video compression. But the missing OiS in earlier phones such as SGN3 contributed to a messy video quality, because those little shakes affect video compression, independent from surrounding light sufficiency.
Mr. Nobody, 02 Nov 2016Any V10 owners here who encountered screen burn ins? Im planning to upgrade to V20 but skeptic... moreIve had my V10 for a long time now....haven't experienced burn-in, though I don't leave my screen on with max brightness for extensive periods of time. However LCDs (and LED) displays cannot have permanent "burn-in". There's potential for "Ghosting" in LCDs which is temporary or this:
"LCDs suffer from a something similar - which is called image persistence, a static image causes a parasitic capacitance to build up which prevents the liquid crystal molecules from returning to their normal relaxed state. The good news is that it's reversible and can be performed by an end user.
It can usually be recovered by displaying a full white screen and depending on the severity of the persistent image it can be recovered in as little as an hour..." -From Ars Technica
Burn-in hasn't been a thing since the old plasma TVs and CRT TVs, It happens in CRTs when the rays actualy burn the phosphorus coating off. (Newer plasma TVs actually prevent it).
My wife has the V20, however

Anonymous, 02 Nov 2016lol quadcore
That's all you have? The snapdragon 820 is quad core, yes....it is also clocked much (Almost 1 GHz) higher than the SD 430 in the Xiaomi...supports higher clocked RAM (1688MHz vs 933MHz)...and the 430 also invalidates the argument of the larger battery as it doesn't utilize big.LITTLE, which makes the 820 much more efficient. There's also matters of Cellular signal support, display support SD 430 goes to 1080p (the xiaomi is 720p) the SD 820 supports up to 4K, camera support (resolution, number of cameras, lenses, etc.), the equipped GPU (430 - Adreno 505 vs 820 - Adreno 530), The list goes on.
Number of cores in the SoC isn't a big matter, as cores do not fully represent the speed or efficiency, it can be useful for multitasking (if you could have 8 active tasks running on a phone)...however outside of that core counting isn't of much use.
Feride LG G3, 02 Nov 2016Better??? Yeah right! You can't compare this beautiful beast to Xiaomi! So unreal!lol quadcore
just made an early buy on the device before it gets to israel.
cost arround 3400 ILS(890$)
comes with extra battery+external charger
bundelled are also VR headset, cam360+waterproof case+lg p7 flow speaker, retail price here for 2400 ils(630$)
PSA: the V20 supports usb 3.0, but it only comes with a USB 2.0 cable in the box.
IF you do a lot of data transfers, get a quality aftermarket USB 3.0 type-c cable like the Anker Powerline series.
Mastour, 31 Oct 2016I think Xiaomi Redmi 3s Prime is better with 4100 mAh battery plus quick charge and its only 148$Better??? Yeah right! You can't compare this beautiful beast to Xiaomi! So unreal!

This smartphone is a beast and it got amazing specs! Also don't go for the dual sim version. If you get it who knows when you gonna get updates.
