john, 24 Feb 2021Hoi geepstar,
wondering if its worth upgrading from v30 to v50? cheersYes, its worth it, v50 hadnt got the android 11 update yet tho but it will.
V30 wont get more android updates so if updating your android isnt a priority then getting a v50 is not really recommended.
this phone is perfect for me
i was gonna buy a S9+ until i found this one
i was gonna for different brand because i have bad experience with samsung
Geepstar, 05 Feb 2021This is my second LG phone. I first had the LG V30. I love the phones. Solid class a products.... morebcuz of famous b.t.l.p problem that ppl saw it in many models of this name
many ppl never go back to this name
This is my second LG phone. I first had the LG V30. I love the phones. Solid class a products. Audiophiles should get it. It is really sad the phones aren't more popular, because, as a lot of people say, they are highly underrated. The daily usage is easy. LG has cleary thought things through.
delight, 26 Jan 2021Hello everyone. I just bought this phone and I love it so much but it lags a little bit someti... moreLG phones have a LOOOT of bloatware (especially the carrier specific ones) which make the phone running slower and laggier than how you expect from its hardware. Some of these bloatwares can be disabled or uninstalled easily from the settings and app management section, but for some of them, the "disable" and "uninstall" buttons are not accessible, so you should use the ADB tools in your PC to forcefully remove them from your phone and free up some RAM, improve its performance and optimize the battery usage.
If you wanna know how the ADB works, google "oem bloatware without root" and check out the xda-developers guide. It's very easy to setup and use.
Also you can google "LG V50 debloat" or "LG G8 debloat" or "LG V40 debloat" or "LG G7 debloat" so you know what you should remove and what you should keep. Since all of the recent LGs have almost the same bloatware, I think every LG bloatware list should work on the V50.
Hello everyone. I just bought this phone and I love it so much but it lags a little bit sometimes. Like just for a microsecond. You might not even notice if you dont keenly observe. Does anyone know what I can do? Thanks .
I have tried to delete app I'm jot using and clear cache.
NarDog, 21 Jan 2021Is it still a good deal for used one?I would recommend looking at Swappa, there are fantastic deals for the used LGs, including the V50 which is around $200-$250 and honestly it's the best deal in this price segment.
NarDog, 21 Jan 2021Is it still a good deal for used one?Sure, it can go as low as 200 dollars used, way better than any mid range smartphones of that price. The only thing that's lagging 2 years after its release is the camera in auto mode.

Seems like V50 got the poop stick by that carrier and since they release their own carrier version software to nerf the phone capabilities, unless you can unlock it to other carriers, your performance will drop steadily or already does because the article is from may 2020.
Keep in mind the issues you are experiencing are only because the carrier changed things on their end not that the phone is being left behind.
have sprint version, using on tmobile. more and more the phone isn't ringing and sendng ppl to voicemail. maybe its the frequency change, tmobile has been warning me about it. i guess time for an upgrade
Anonymous, 06 Jan 2021Maybe you got a faulty phone coz never heard of those issues...No, it's fine, I think, it is from Sprint, new, 98% battery life, but those small problems go unnoticed by the average user and it could be software issues, or not.
azy, 06 Jan 2021Gotta tell you, thats a load of BS you are posting, any phone will pause for a second because ... moreno sir, I had the V10, V20, and just bought this, even the cpu freq. on the V20 was underclocked, probably to save the battery that drained quickly. Audio doesn't stop on other phones when shoot photos, obviously on silent or vibration mode, and it's worse using Bluetooth, weird sounds with multitasking, you can even totally block the signal with the palm of your hand!, check it by yourself.

yes I do have it on an sd card (bought a 1tb as card partly for this purpose as the lbf files are big and I was doing backups every day almost - you never know what can happen)
Hope it is not corrupted as you said
Have not got this phone yet but will try to install backup as soon as I do
Thanks again for your help

If so you can put the SD card on the new phone and see if it can be restored. The size on the backup alone will give you an idea of what might be restored. Also check your google drive, older phones used to backup directly to google drive unless prevented to do so.

I have Es explorer that last version available because its discontinued, no issues. I havnt had a crash on LG ever, and i used it since v10- Stylus 3 - v30+ now v50, not a single crash.
All apps work, i have old discontinued apps that i moved using LG switch between phones and they all still work.
Dont post lies about LG.
