Hello, I was wanting to know which phone is better, the G5 or the V20. I have a Motorola G4 Plus and it is really problematic so I decided to try LG out and see if they are any good. Thanks in advance.
Most different design, and flatness looks awesome. Signal problems started, frequent disconnections. Guys give feed back.

This phone blows away any sammy or apple away. Had to buy it to find out for myself. So far no complaints. Most people talking about bad looks... My phones live in a case anyways and so many others use cases. So looks is a mute point nowdays anyways. Its all about functionality.

Couldn't keep that POS edge more then few months. Loving the v20. For me phones are not a status symbol. Hated samsung for the edge screen. No removable battery . No ir blaster. Dropping calls and weak cell signal compared to other phones. S7 edge has hybrid dual sim and v20 has actual dual sim where you can use 2 sim cards and memory card without screwing around. Should have bought the lg v20 at first place. Just my 02 cents.

Also sound blow since newYeah, my G5 did the same within three months of having it. All I did is just use a plain black wallpaper. My lockscreen is plain black but says Android on it. On my Textra app, all black with red accents. On my Nova Launcher settings, I use white background and not night mode. I also used to see it on my La Musique app but just changed it to Pi Music Player with black theme. Mine has a work around. As long as it isn't a gray background or anything lighter than black.
I still LOVE both my G5 and V20. I think my V20 is the best phone because it is feature packed and has a better screen, video recorder, longer battery life but G5 is my personal favorite. I just bought a pair of $41 128gb microSD cards just to future proof them both. Still have 39gb left not including the internal storage (G5 has 14gb left, V20 has 40gb left). No more worries of storage anxiety for years and years unlike iPhones.
Mandatory requirements -
3.5mm headphone jack
G5 and V20 will be the last flagships of their kind to have them all. I now use my Pixel less than my G5 even if it carries my Verizon sim because only internal storage, sealed battery, and camera is great but overrated in my eyes. The worst of the Top 4 and I just prefer typing on my G5 more at 5.3".
V20 is the best phone LG ever made. The last of its kind for future proofing. G5 is my favorite phone ever made. The V20-mini or what the Galaxy S is to the Note series.

I have also bought the v20 from India, and have not received any software update, if i remember correctly there was a security patch update 3 or 4 months before.
Word has it, lg will not be giving 7.1 update and instead will be jumping to 8.0 Oreo directly, not sure about this have to wait and see.

Fast... moreLet me help you with the bad:
1. Battery life is ok at best. Be thankful if can break 4 hrs SOT under normal use.
2. Screen only looks great when brightness maxed.
3. Huge side bezels.
4. I still think LG has not sent out any updates.
Best phone that I have ever used. I used S8 plus as well but found it very cumbersome. LG V20 camera is excellent but has many features and one can get realy very nice shots

Nah your just bunch of unhappy people who cant be content. No matter what Unit you have youll still find flaws even theres nothing to winch about. I never had a boot loop isue with mg G4 takes better photos than v20 samsung s8 and apple . like A lyca Camera. Try tobe more possitive than hatters. Peace out.

NO problem of bootloop, nor anything to create sensation,but it's software is 6 months back update, then it's disowned by LG,more concentration on L30 launch. Samsung is no one in monthly updates and reqular in updating small to big hiccups. Thats why its leading world over.
Lg v20 also suffered from boot loop issue. There are plenty of you tube videos about v20 bootloop. Never by lg. I'm also suffered from boot loop of my g4

Planning to buy LG V20. I also have the following options:

Also, is that Boot Loop a problem being faced in V20 too? What are drawbacks of the phone?
