This isn't necessarily an opinion, but i think this info should be updated. i do not have the UW version of this phone (mine is through t-mobile) and i recieved the android 11 update a few weeks ago, meaning that this version of the phone is 'Android 10, up to Android 11' not just 'Android 10'.
now for the opinion: absolutely lovely device, limited only by lg leaving the smartphone market and the INSANE fragility of the front glass of the dual screen case. i had one dual screen case crack when i dropped it onto a shag carpet. from coffee table height.
unxpctd, 05 Jul 2021I think it is a huge shame this phone was not more successful. It undercut the overpriced S20 ... moreppl afraid of stucking in B.ootloo.p again
thats why they don't buy LG & don't trust to it.
thats why the shutters of the phone factory were pulled down forever
They were pricing products exactly just like samsung(double & triple more than real price)
Now that they are bankrupt, after it they have lowered prices.
I think it is a huge shame this phone was not more successful. It undercut the overpriced S20 and had some extra hardware features that Samsung dumped in the name of better profit margins.
The classy white color of this phone is absolutely stunning too and I have yet to see any pictures online that do it justice. It is so mere like and reflective. I will only put a clear case over this phone as a result.

Leave it to the mobile gamers to play games on the go with a better screen, about the same if not more power, and more versatility. I can play Minecraft and use whatever texture pack I want from online. It's harder to do that on Nintendo or PlayStation. Oh, but you keep sticking only to those anyway.
Zaakirr, 28 May 2021Even apple iPhone 12series do come with 60 hz display. cause only apple users care about refresh rate.
as long as the screen doesn't flicker, its not needed to have more and a gimmick.
never had a single Sony/SE phone in the past 20y where that was an issue.
and anyone that wants to game on the go, buy a proper PS or nintendo..
I am a huge fan of LG starting from Nexus5 (google version produced by LG ), LG G4 then LG G5 then LG G6
It seems like they don't have any developers as their software is the same. All the unboxing videos are a bunch of old fashion marketing strategies.
>system is running very slow and you need to restart the phone
>the UX/UI is a disaster from the LG G6 (2017) to LGv60 (2020)I see no difference, no improvement, nothing at all.
>updates are approximately 6 months late than any other Android Phone provider. And the updates only have security patches nothing else.
>face unlock feature is not implemented
>basically if you purchase the phone you get only the new hardware.
Now they will go out from the mobile market they will put the plug also on the 6months trend updates.

both drain the battery and stresses the processor and making it warm
but that huge battery, a normal 1080p display, a powerful snapdragon make this phone a beast, a complete powerhouse, also that big display is perfect for my big hands :)
i was gonna buy the v50 but it wont work right with t-mobile, so i went with this one
YUKI93, 24 May 2021I wouldn't dare to comment much about the OS update since LG didn't mention much abo... moreyou can find this phone for $400 brand new at ebay
which im gonna get due to great specs and audio and with that durability cert.

The build quality in the V60 is inferior, that satin finish of the frame makes it look cheap, its screen has a lower resolution, the TOF camera does the same thing that the V50 did in portrait mode, I don't understand why what they put it in place of the telephoto, the main one takes good photos unless you take them with maximum resolution, which occupy around 10mb each. The 3.5mm jack is fragile, I have only been with it for 3 months and the connector comes out, the buttons feel harder and they sink with use, the absence of sensors on the front means that sometimes it is not turn off the screen during calls, don't turn the screen on when you take it out of your pocket you need one tap for wake up, and it doesn't regulate the brightness properly. In terms of performance, it is not worth the change, except for the additional 2gb of ram, the cpu frequency is exactly the same as the V50, except the cores for power saving and GPU, only in games the performance improvement is appreciated, in short, the V60 it's 20% more battery and 9cm² more screen. The AT&T version is the worst, at least for the rest of the world, there is no updates unless you live in the US.

It did receive a stable Android 11 OS update though, so it's not all bad news. Speaking of this phone, this is a totally underrated flagship phone that can embarrass more expensive rivals. This phone may doesn't have a high refresh rate or even 1440p+ resolution, but 1080p+ resolution and 60Hz refresh rate alongside the 5,000mAh battery means solid battery life. Near two days of use is reachable. More than that, it has USB-C 3.1 with video output support and Screen+ Desktop Mode, which means that you can easily use this phone as a desktop/laptop.
Being a flagship-grade LG phone, the audio quality is top notch. No amount of Bluetooth codecs can beat the superbly excellent built-in Quad DAC. My absolute personal favourite feature about this phone is the optional detachable DualScreen case. Mrwhosetheboss may dismiss it for saying that no one would be using it, but it was because of that detachable case that allows me to use two apps simultaneously without splitting the phone's single screen. More than that, the case can also be used as a touch gamepad and a touch keyboard. Totally super useful when I'm creating office documents and playing games on the go.
If you don't mind much about LG UX, this is a truly capable phone to have. Even a brand new one can be obtained from eBay for no more than $600. That is a real steal.
I'm thinking about getting this, but I think I'm not gonna get another phone for the next 2-3 after buying one. Is it still worth it in the future? I really wanna know your opinions.

And also v60 hard to recommend to someone like to watch streaming movie from Netflix.just support sd format which is drm level 3.
Just about the only two things I don't like about the V60 are its ginormous 6.8" screen and the absence of an ultrawide front camera. The lack of a high screen refresh rate could be a deal-breaker to some people, but that didn't bother me at all since I never cared enough about using it in the real world in the first place. The fact that this flagship-grade 5G smartphone still has a headphone jack with FM Radio support and retailed for $200 cheaper than the cheapest Samsung Galaxy S20 at launch is totally enough for me to put this totally underrated smartphone on top of my favourite list.
