J, 24 Aug 2016I hope this one won't suffer from bootloop issue. I've been an avid consumer since LG viewty
... moreIt happened to one of their phone for the first batches before it was discovered. When are people going to stop bringing this up like it's something that happens to 100% of their phones?
Are you worried about Samsung putting insane chips in their phones, HTC for having screens pop up etc?
Qxdir, 24 Aug 2016Can't someone brag about battery life?Just get a Galaxy A9 with 5000mAh battery!
if LG V20 will have earpiece set ... this is just bullshit !
if LG V20 will have stereo front speakers ... this will be an improvement, something good.
" LG V20's upcoming marketing campaign will definitely be high-quality audio experience. A couple of weeks ago, we first heard a rumor that the V20 might actually be the first smartphone to offer a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC. "
1) "high-quality audio experience 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC" with ONE mono speaker is just a big bullshit !
2) Even "high-quality audio experience 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC" with two bottom on the side speakers is just a big bullshit !
3) "high-quality audio experience 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC" with TWO STEREO FRONT speakers will be very nice !
4) "high-quality audio experience 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC" with QUAD STEREO FRONT speakers will be something real high-quality audio experience !!
So ... depends how they will do this LG V20... the market has a lot of smartphones with "super HiFi 32bit DAC" with one stupid idiot mono speaker !
DAC is a Digital-to-Analog Converter. A DAC has one task Â— convert digital audio information into an analog signal that can be sent out to a speaker or amplifier.
32-bit audio can have a whopping 4,294,967,296 points of data.
It's DAC through the 3.5mm plug. ..and it's not the first, this reporter / writer needs to do some research! If you get a good pair of headphones, or feed your 3.5mm to a sound system, even the one in your car, you will hear the magical difference@!
The LG V10 has had this for some time, it's not new.
LG V10 32-Bit DAC
I wonder who is that stupid LG boss that keeps misreading the real customer needs for around 4 years now and counting ? Since the G2, LG did only stupid things year after year.
Audio quality ? Who cares about audio quality ?
i love stereo speakers on mobile phone die, just like sony w550i, great move for LG.
MarcioReis, 24 Aug 2016Who cares? Unless you're into knives, crazy frog and bieber, you're not gonna listen to music ... moreEducate yourself or at least read before you comment. This audio prowess is about the DAC which will provide great audio output through the headphone jack, not just the speaker. Not many people use the speaker, but everyone uses the headphone jack.
Y everyone is talking about stereo speakers, think of hifi auduio output with b&o earphones
Which OEM produces flagships which have removable battery function?
Qxdir, 24 Aug 2016Can't someone brag about battery life?Samsung does. 98 hours endurance rating on the s7 edge.
JordanClock, 24 Aug 2016The DAC affects analog headphones as well, so a lot of pretty really care what the audio quali... moreIs that true though? Most people don't have headphones that are high enough quality to even take advantage of that. And even if they did its quite unnoticeable.
I mean, its good that lg is giving an already decent phone some USP to fit a niche, but it really isn't that big a niche. If they tick the other boxes like battery life it'll be better.
Diu Nia Ma, 24 Aug 2016And yet Samsung still uses single mono soft speaker located at the back. Can't even hear p... moreOf course they don't. How could they have the speakers on the glass anyway. Its on the bottom like everyone else.
Meh, never was a fan of phone speakers. Give me a high quality pair of earphones or a sound-boosting bluetooth speaker and i'll forget my phone has speakers of its own in the first place.
MarcioReis, 24 Aug 2016Who cares? Unless you're into knives, crazy frog and bieber, you're not gonna listen to music ... moreThe DAC affects analog headphones as well, so a lot of pretty really care what the audio quality is like.
And yet Samsung still uses single mono soft speaker located at the back.
Can't even hear phone ringing at a pub.
What a shame. Ptui
Who cares? Unless you're into knives, crazy frog and bieber, you're not gonna listen to music on the phone's speakers.
It's battery we want mainly...
Totally, there's always the option of portable speakers for an affordable price which comes in handy which comes with higher sound quality in general.
The issue in todays mobile industry is battery prformance and holding charge, that should be the main focus atm. HTC is one of the best in sound domain same as asus and acer.
LG can brag as much as they want, they do not convince me at all.
Give us more internal storage, qi charging, better batteries, latest snapdragon SoC and SD cards at affordable flagship price and that will be a killer for sure.
If ¶ Quad Stereo Speakers ¶ on V20 :
Doubtless! V20 is my next target, yes!
Every which 2 till 3 watt!!
