dalmmat, 11 Sep 2022Where can I buy the original unused battery BL-T42 for V50??
It is not available on Aliexpres... moreCant really find it unless you manage to get a broken v50 with its battery intact(very unlikely since battery is the first thing that gets salvaged), since they are discontinued.
Might be cheaper just to get another v50, they will get discount on late october for black friday probably.

It is not available on Aliexpress, only a replacement battery...it is available on Taobao, but it is impossible to get it, it needs an intermediary to send it to Europe

Buyed lgv50, refarb one from aliexpress for 150$. a real price for this korean shit. a real price for all silicone shit out there. pay more? why? pay less!

From LG to Sony, everything is downgraded.
Sony don't even put heat pipe or vaper chamber inside their phone. Xperia 1 run hot from generation1 to 4, never had any improvement.
South Africa finally has the android 12 update. At least Telkom does. So far I have no complaints. Not many big changes just the privacy stuff that is really noticeable and appreciated. This phone still works pretty well. I am concerned about my choices for an upgrade since LG has called it quits. Maybe I should look into Sony? Hopefully the Experia 5 gen 3 will drop in price once the gen 4 is released. Maybe I should look into a Experia 1 gen 2?

You can find out more by searching the firmware name. Or the last update installed on update history.
bought an used V50, but LM500XM version....and it is still on android 9....it is super great at almost everything, battery life, snappy and all that...but for some reason i cannot upgrade, not even to A10...not sure why...when i got the phone i thought that given that the phone was not in use for more than a year, it was just a matter of connecting to a network and i'd be receiving all of the updates...but...so fat still on A9 and security update from....May 2020! :(...and whenever i try to update it using the phone's own method it says that i am already using the lates software version!...whenever i look for updates...i cannot find information for this XM version...help....

Android 11 was working just fine for me and 12 just screwed up my phone. How would you revert back to a previous version, is that even possible without rooting ?
atokhang, 25 Jul 2022I’m considering buying this phone as my 2nd and gaming phone. But, I’ve heard there are few is... moreI have had random freeze ups with Android 11 when I would try to unlock my phone through finger print sensor. It would just not respond for a few seconds. I was ok with it as it used to happen once or twice a day. But I recently updated it to Android 12 and since then it does that thing like almost every time, it literally got to a point where it didn't respond at all for several minutes and it this time i had to restart it. Also with Android 12 the system is really sluggish almost seems like the 6GB RAM is just not enough for it. I have only owned the phone for like 4 months and I was just content with it for the features i got for $180 but Android 12 update had made me question my choices and am already looking for a new phone. So think about that before you buy this.

Get a korean v50 from ali express instead, ask the seller to declare it at 50 bucks to avoid custom tax.
As for performance, am using a korean v50 and i got no issues, battery last just as long, no scrolling issues that i have read elsewere. I dont play games so i dont know how it performs when under heavy use. Video calls no issues. Reading no issues. Avoid having too much white in the background tho, screen panel is OLED and white will make the screen warm if its too bright.
Also the telegram community for lg has plenty of fonts and themes now that LG world is basically dead, you still get access to some free themes and background, AOD tho.

My concern is Android 12 update make this device better or degrade..??
Any specific network issues may i face in future as am living in india.. anyone using this unlocked phone in india?
I have used my V50 as my primary phone since 2019. I've never had any reset, freeze, or other problem on any of the systems (it was android 9 in the beginning, now it's 12). A perfect smartphone for me (Hi-Fi Quad + MQA, + audio jack), but I'm slowly looking around for a new audio phone and am slightly disappointed. Progress has slowed, and this one is still great.
