You also need to consider your service provider if your device is tied to them. On AT&T I have been getting pretty timely updates to my V20 (every 1-3 months). LG actually was the FASTEST OEM to update all applicable devices to Android 7 Nougat (78 Days) compare that to Samsung (143 Days) and you see how your comment starts falling apart.
People say different opinions on V20. Yes it is good phone. No doubt. Camera does its job very well but low light photos are noisy. Sound using headphones (Any Quality) is extremely good. But NO UPDATES for long time. still is with December update. NO regular update. LG failed maintenance on V20. Fans think about it before U go with LG. Like Apple and Samsung give proper update every month. But LG- NO.

As for the screen rotation delay, many things can cause that. The app that is open, background apps, animation settings, etc.
Screen size does not directly correlate to required RAM for good performance...
Issue with the camera opening, getting to the camera to start is ok but when flipping between wide angle and normal angle is lagging, and sometimes also when flipping between landscape mode and standard mode
I think with such a large screen, it should do more than 4 gb ram so performance is at max

Is there an app that utilizes plenty of resources even when not active? Is there potentially malware on your device?
Answer those, then if all no, then you may be able to blame the device itself. Which could potentially be a defect...which happen...no matter what device you purchase.

Anonymous, 17 Mar 2017Has their been any case of bootloop for those who have been£ using this good phone? Phone is fantastic. No bootloop issues so far (ive heard rumors but not really much official, LG blamed shoddy USB-C cables for the few reports there are).
Display is great
Ticker screen is handy when the main display is off (I don't use it much otherwise)
Speakers are good and loud.
Hi-Fi DAC is incredible for a built in
Fingerprint reader is quite quick, though iffy to reach at times.
Phone is mostly very sturdy, (camera glass is more susceptible to focal pressure so keep that in mind, don't store it near pointy things)
Camera quality is superb other than a light smudge in areas of similar colors (the sky for example kind of looks oily, this seems to be a matter of software processing...as RAW images don't have it)

Hoping LGV30 will have 6inches display within the same body and with the latest snapdragon 835.

You can't activate 4G on both slots at the same time, 1 will deactivate and another will activate. Cheers :)

Anonymous, 11 Mar 2017a lot of people have been disappointed by bootlooping phones, and even though LG has recognize... moreHere's the issue comparison of G4 to Note 7
G4: LG did take a bit of time to recognize and take responsibility, to which they had the CARRIERS identify and estimate by reports the serial range of devices effected. Then did a recall of all devices in the estimated serial range, by carrier. Which could easily explain why you had a bunch of trouble, your device may have not been in the range given by your carrier. These kind of recalls are not uncommon, not really best practice for consumers, but not uncommon.
Note 7: After multiple reports of minor phone bursts, Samsung took some notice, no recall. It was not until after the device was burning cars out, houses down, getting banned from airlines, carriers and some countries, that Samsung finally fully recalled the device. Then the replacements, ended up with the same issue, to which the recall allowed them (dependent on carrier) to choose another Samsung device or equivalent phone.
My G4 experience went as such...1st bootlooped after 1 year, I sent it in, got a new one in 3 days. After 1 week, replacement bootlooped...turned out the replacement was also in the recall serial line of my carrier, called back, got a prompt apology from a manager, then they sent me a V10 free of charge, which is still going to this day. A radically different experience.
Funnily if you leave samsung's flagships, and go to their mid range or offshoot devices, the customer support experience is dreadful. I had a Samsung Captivate Glide (a Galaxy S2 offshoot with a physical keyboard). The battery swelled (this has been a long running issue with Samsung...excessive battery swell) popped off the back and im out the battery (wasn't many third party options for this device). Called, and was refused a new one, as they just suspected water damage, wanted me to pay for an entire new device, when all I asked for was a battery. Radically different experience.
What still stands is, the Bootloop issue was a G4 problem. The rest of the devices that are claimed still remain under normal defective device levels in terms of number of reports. Thereby, people need to stop bootlooping themselves around it on every device...if it becomes a problem, we will know.
I want to buy dual sim model H990DS, someone please confirm if the sim2 is 2G only or go in 3G. Thank you.
Walliut, 11 Mar 2017Hey, you miss something important ! The g4 had a boot loop issue, the problem was that the pho... morea lot of people have been disappointed by bootlooping phones, and even though LG has recognized the problem some people have been getting free repairs, and some have not. I am in the latter group. This problem is very similar to the RROD problem Microsoft had with the first generation of Xbox 360, and even they were quick to abandon trying to repair the PCB and moved to a complete console replacement. It's obvious a suit at the head of LG's mobile division has calculated the cost of recalling and replacing the phones will be greater than the cost of lost customers.
I'm also getting terrible treatment from my LG service center despite already giving them money. I actually wasn't that upset that my phone bootlooped because I got a chance to get all the data off it. My attitude has since changed since visiting the LG service center *multiple* times now. I wish I took the money I gave to them to repair my phone and just put that towards buying a completely new phone now.
It's interesting because up until last month I've been using LG phones for the last 3.5 years now and been nothing but a fan up to this point. That's all changed now and it's not because of a defective phone but how their service center has handled it. They could have made it right and made me an even more loyal LG customer. They chose not to.
