LG has not improved anything in the last years. It has the performance of a Snapdragon 835, general speed and gaming. When you take a picture while playing music, it stops for a second, no matter music player or internal/external storage. It crashes a lot, notifications on status bar freezes, sudden black screen, apps not working, like nova launcher, es file explorer, pdf viewer. If you charge the phone while using it, takes
Is anyone using the Verizon version of this phone, on Total Wireless? The G7 and G8 both have WiFi Calling while on Total Wireless, and was wondering about this one
Anonymous, 04 Jan 2021Thank you.i had the LG g8x and it never got hot ..Yea, that one also has 2k res to avoid getting hot, at 2340x1080 its very unlikely it will get hot the V50 can have 3440 x 1440 at high res, its why on heavy usage the screen will feel warm, wont get in the way of performance tho. Like some other phones that slow down or cut calls to cool off. Can always back down to 2340 if you feel like it or even 1560, but that will defeat the purpose of LG screen quality.
Using high res on the V50 is about choice, for me to read its great, also for browsing on the web, writing stuff etc.

Quick question: does the LBF backup file from my LG G6 install most if not all of my se... moreYou should have no problem as long is not corrupted, LG switch will also move everything from one phone to another. either using a male-male usb cable then plugging both USB c from each phone or via wfi.
I moved all my stuff with lg switch, i cant be sure if it also moves the content in your gallery tho, so either back that up or put it in a folder to be easily moved.
Quick question: does the LBF backup file from my LG G6 install most if not all of my setup to the v50?

And not by bricking the phone itself but their sim chips. Try to search for a way to unlock your phone to another carrier if possible.
I avoid using US carrier version phones because of their carrier limitations, korean or european versions work worldwide most of times.
I was informed that the Sprint version of this phone will stop working on Sprint/T-Mobile in January when they drop 3G since it does not have VoLTE to make voice calls on 4G. Also, the Sprint 5G network is being shut down because of the merger and this phone only supports that 5G network. Does anyone know if any of the other variants have VoLTE? I love this phone and am sad to have to turn it into a paperweight.

This is why their phones score low points in dxomark.
However, using the Manual mode, you can take way better photos. Basically in this mode you'll get the full potential of the phone's camera hardware, which is on par with the Galaxy S10. And if point and shoot is your style, you can install a modded Google Camera, load some xml presets and you'll have a point and shoot camera that is equal to or maybe even better than the Pixels.
Reddit and Telegram groups and channels are pretty good places to get more infos, download links and photo samples of the Google Camera.
Is the camera any good in comparison to midrangers in 2020? Samples of GSMarena shows that it's fallen behind midrangers these days.

Take the sample of LG G8X. On Dec, 2019 the G8X was launched in our country with bundled dual screen case @ $745 on an online store.
Come Oct, 2020 the same online retailer was selling brand new G8X with dual screen case slapped in for just $245. That's an insane $500 drop in just 11 months. No question I bought one at a heartbeat.
Raxi02, 18 Nov 2020Will this be worth to buy in 2021 or should I go for v 60? I like v 60 but the v 60 has lower ... moreThe v60 has lower resolution to avoid the overheating problem using high resolution on the v50 causes (3440x 1080) if you want to get overheating on this phone low use the phone at medium res if you are a heavy user, if not you shouldnt have a problem on high.
Paying premium for the v60 now when in about half a year next year will have its price more than half its more about your pockets, you can get the v50 for 200- 300 USD while you are going to pay over 700 for the v60.
You can be sure the v50 will at least get OS update from 10 to 11 not so sure it will make it to 12 but by then the v60 will be 250 -300 USD :D
Hey guys! Does LG support 3 major OS updates on their phones like the V50?
