For those who have the dual sim version is it possible to put the phone into GSM only mode in the network settings,?
I am thinking of importing a lg v20 but I could do with knowing if it can be put into GSM only.
The destructive criticism spirit is sad. If the cameras protrude a little, with a suitable case protects and brings a improved grip.
Most people here are either being paid by Samsung to troll and spread false information.
I might pick up a V20 if the V30 goes with a curved display and no removable battery like the V34. Not saying goodbye to removable battery forever just yet.
Mostly Underrated, I agree, But Why LG has never dared to Advertise, Availability in Most Countries. Just China, India and USA. Rest go to Dogs. How is V30 endup in market, within nxt Qtr.
No problem with V20 DS, only matter is its small screen battery, all gone for good Oled Screen is must n V30. And 128 internal, plus 4k must. Price would touch 1000 $°
cherry_bomb, 19 Apr 2017Lg v20 are facing a lot issues that keep me driving away to buy a v20
*fas... moreIl tackle your borderline troll comment piece by piece.
*heating problem - No not really, gets slightly warm but nothing worrisome.
*fast battery drainage - it is removable, changeable, 0-100% in seconds.
*fragile back camera cover - an issue that didn't really become anything major (like many things here), the camera glass is more susceptible to focal pressure but isn't "prone to breaking"
*the "famous" lg problem bootloop - it is more famous by those people who keep it in their bootlooped head than an actual issue in devices, the G4 as stated multitudes of times is the only device that suffered the issue catastrophically, the rest...is under normal defect percentages
*the v20 was added to the lawsuit - First, read above, second read the lawsuit. The G4, again...the only one with enough signatories THAT OWN THE DEVICE to have traction.

AnonD-662822, 19 Apr 2017The phone is basically a failure from LG in so many ways that really matter but here are my 3 ... moreReally dude !!!
Try the device by yourself then complain
1- Two hours only xD xD , They are too much dude, it only lasts 30 minutes
2- No degrees whatsoever , Just use Auto mode and you are good to go with excellent images
3- how it feels in your hand is personal favour and it's up to you
Please guys , now i know that a lot of Gsmarena opinions are fakes and just haters who want to drive you away from the brand
LG V20 Awesome phone extremely under rated so far I have no complaints
The phone is basically a failure from LG in so many ways that really matter but here are my 3 things that just ended my happiness with this purchase:
1. Battery life is so short I get a maximum of 2 hours use per day.
2. You will need to get a degree in photography just to use the camera.
3. It feels wrong in my hand.
I usually have pros and cons when reviewing any product. However, in this case I honestly have no pros to report.
Lg v20 are facing a lot issues that keep me driving away to buy a v20
*fast battery drainage
*fragile back camera cover(some v20 owners complaining this problem)#shatterglass
*the famous lg problem bootloop(lg claim that its because of cheap usb-c connector)
*And now v20 is added in lawsuit together with g5
AnonD-595568, 18 Apr 2017I have just recieved my LG v20 from 2 days
Please don't listen to haters
Most probably they ... moreForgot to add in the pros , the sound quality is just brilliant
Hifi quad Dac in listenning and speaker also is great
Also tried recording in HD audio in Flac format using 4 Mics
Guys @ LG deserves a prize for this one
Also to add that the selfie cam is excellent and not average ( i have just tried some pics at sunlight with my daughter ) and it also has a wider FoV which is way fun
Also to add in the cons that they really should have upgraded battery capacity as the phone is large in size
I see it below average and for heavy user it would last half day
And for moderate user it would last one day
So overall it is a phone for multimedia purposes ( sound and camera ) and performance and capacity
But its main flaw is the battery capacity and the AMOLED screens seems to be better in my opinion
Have fun and enjoy it while you can and don"t listen to haters or the ones that just complain while they didn't own the device
It is one of the few devices that are not repeated every day
I have tried about 4 manufacturers in the past 3 year and for the whole package i see that LG are an innovative company and not just a normal one
This is demonstrated in both G5 with the modules tech and the V series with the two screens
Keep it LG and please hire programers so we can have OS updates
I have just recieved my LG v20 from 2 days
Please don't listen to haters
Most probably they didn't own the device
I have H990DS the taiwanese dual sim
It's a true dual sim ( 3 slots in total ) which is convenient rather than the hybrid slot mania ( i must have two sims one for buisness and one peraonal ) and want to have extra space ( for 4k recordings and downloading movies and series ), i think i pay a lot of money and it is an easy feature
It comes with fast charger and type c usb cable and ordinary headphones not B&O but they are still excellent
It's my first LG device and i falled in love with it once i saw it and i think i will be an LG user till the end
Also i believe it's a phonr designed for men and not women by its looks and size
However find my cons and pros for this device
- excellent design and materials
- 2nd screen is way beneficial and awesome ( a LOT of useful functions even when main screen is on ( quick dials, apps shortcuts and recents )
- LG optimus os is actually very good ( gallery, music player, camera and keyboard is well updated and customizable like controllling time for hold on buttons, controlling softkeys location and number )
- Camera is very good and 2nd camera for wide FoV is real fun specially in landscapes and group pbotos
- selfie cam is moderate but not excellent
- SD 820 is a good chipset and can stand heavy tasks
- removable battery which is something useful later on or on the long run
-IR blaster ( my little daughter losts the TV and satellite remotes all the time and through them in baskets )
- better than many competitors in some specifications and design ( samsung are not changing designs and flagships are glass from the back beside the hybrid slot mania
- battery life is average ( i am coming from 100h samsung phone so there is a huge difference )
- gets a little bit warm on heavy usage ( but not annoying or hot
- quite bulky in size and sometimes annoying in jeans pockets but not like 6" phaplets not like mate 9
- screen colours are not very sharp ( i feel that AMOLODs are better than this one )
- LG os updates are way obselete or delayed ( lateat update is from december ) we need Nouhay 7.1 LG
Finally i know that you will never get the complete package otherwise companies will close and the mobile industry would stop
The trick is you get what you really need within the allocated budget and i feel i am satisfied with LG for doing this job on the V20
Feel free to ask for anything and i will try to reply as fast as i can
LG and HTC are both going wrong way. They focus on performance and they dont realize that we need BATTERY for daily use. Failed phone ever, 2k 4k screen is meaningless without good battery. bs!
HELP PLS!!!!!!!!!!!, 17 Apr 2017How do I get my phone call in second screen of lg v20 I can't find it I see this awesome feat... moreIt should be on by default, note that it only displays the phone number, answer, and reject buttons when a call is coming in, that is all. The setting to show this should be under Display>Second screen>show when main display is on OR Show when main display is off
Phred, 15 Apr 2017No, hardly! I use many sources. This is but one persons review that tells us of a potential ... moreDo you do the same for any other brand for issues that remain in normal defective device percentage amounts? Say, Samsung's battery swelling problems (which came to a head on the Note 7)...HTCs camera defects, Sony, Oneplus, etc.
If so, do you keep those issues rolling on EVERY SINGLE DEVICE RELEASED, or let it go?
If you don't treat all brands fairly, you're simply biased.
The G4 remains the only LG handset that suffered the bootloop issue catastrophically, the rest remain under normal defect levels...The Note 7 is the only Samsung handset that suffered battery swelling and bursting, the others remain under normal defect levels...get over it.
