im think buy a new phone so tell me lg v20 its good or a samsung s6 edge plus .? tell me which phone is better.

1. It allows them to put a bigger battery in the phone.
2. It allows them to structurally make the phone stronger and thinner.
3. It makes it easier to make the phone waterproof or at least water resistant.
4. Eliminates the extra work of manufacturing and distributing user replaceable batteries.
5. Shuts down counterfeiters. Remember years back the market was flooded with fake Samsung batteries. By making the battery non-removable they are also protecting their customers from buying a fake and potentially dangerous battery.
Most people want maximum battery life than lower battery life but able to swap batteries. You can even see how battery life improved considerably when LG made it non-removable in the G6. And now the V30 also non-removable. Have fun 2 years from now you will be the only person hanging off the train with a phone with a removable battery and huge bezels.

Inquire LG, 11 Sep 2017I hope LG will release a phone 5.2" and removable battery. Any idea if they will have one? Wh... moreYou wanna know why? Coz this is how business goes! If a person uses a phone that has a non-removable battery, there's a high chance that this person will buy a new phone after a year or two. Why? Coz they won't get the same SOT as what they got when their phone was new. Also, it's not that easy to have the battery replaced esp. when the latest flagship is out. Why? Coz manufacturers will no longer sell you batteries so you'll be forced to buy their new $800 - $1000 phone. They'll probably tell you replacement batteries are out of stock. You see, the difference between the latest flagships and it's predecessors is only huge on paper but not that noticeable in real life usage. With this said, who do you think will buy new flagships if people could just spend $20 on new batteries?

Bought this phone couple months ago, and i dont regret my decision at all. The audio, display, performance, camera. Everything is charming as hell.
This Phone is amazing but feels short in one area: GSM reception inside buildings. In comparison, my old Sony Xperia managed this perfectly. As phone feature is my least concern, I can live with it. Improvements area: Unlocking with fingerprint while in charge does not work and they should put a fingerprint reader also in the front, to unlock phone when on a table. Quick charging term is overrated, it is a bit faster but not really quick, but I guess it is the same for all other brands. Sound quality is truely impressive and will put a lot of dedicated Bluetooth speakers to shame. Buy without hesitation for the price if you can live with the above.

Just bought this phone during my trip to South Korea and did not regret my decision even a little bit. Although its 1 year old model but its still powerful. With removable battery, wide angle camera, hifi audio while recording video in full manual....... Simply the best phone ever. I don't even need to connect my powerbank to my phone when the battery is low. Just pop the old ones for the new ones and put the old ones into the cradle to charge with the powerbank so that I don't have to walk around like an idiot with cables dangling around my phone. Its worth the wait for nearly 1 year for me. Loving it to the max!! LG V20 rocks!!!!
Anonymous, 15 Sep 2017Yup just keep blabbing on and on whatever it takes to validate your purchase decision. The ... moreI don't know about the others but yes, I'd buy the V20 even if it were sold at the price of the Samsung Note 8. The reason is because it is worth to me so much more than the Note 8. I value substance, features, usability, versatility, and longevity up and above branding and fancy looks. The features you consider low-end like the removable battery, ir blaster, dedicated sd card slot and FM radio that are all present in the V20 but largely absent in all other flagship phones from other brands is what makes the V20 truly unique and special. It is the last flagship of its kind to have almost everything you can ask for. It has what it takes that will make it relevant even 5 years from now. I do understand most buyers prefer to prioritize looks, branding and prestige up and above everything else. It is for that reason Samsung and Apple sell more than all the rest and not because they are truly the best in what smartphone technology can offer.
I'm accustomed since youngster at HI-FI stereo systems, now relocated in a room which is not suitable to this purpose the V20 came as a source with high capability and of course don't finish here their capabilities.
This is the only phone that comes up on GSMArena Phone Finder with my prefered features.
