Phones do not have to have batteries sealed inside that's the companies way to keep you buying phones year after year. If the Note 7 had a removable batteries and the battery was at fault you could have removed from phone preventing fires tossed battery in garbage and Samsung could ship a new one. It's difficult to even return these phones because nobody want to transport them. These high power batteries sealed in a phone,now made watertight is a very stupid and uneeded idea.
AppleLover01, 18 Oct 2016Fine, no one is asking about Xiaomi. We don't want poor phone quality. Did you try to throw aw... moreI'm lost, why are you throwing your phone from above 6ft? And this measures a good device? I prefer to not throw my phone and have the glass or ceramic body which handles normal drops just fine. LG has always trailed behind Xiaomi, mirroring etc are standards in any phone? But at least from the G5 they have become decent. Hopefully if updates become as good as Xiaomi's these camera features will be in the G5 also, as that's all I was pointing out it's already built in any phone, LG specifically in this case, with an SD800 and above.(Except the zoom).

Did you try to throw away your Xiaomi 6 foot from above? I tried LG and still working good without scratch. LG has many GOOD features like DSD64/128/256 and even 512 is now supported. Can mirror to any TV if you want and good quality screen. Even in Philippines, only seldom buying Xiaomi because of low quality and this is the reason Xiaomi did not sell any product in PH anymore.
Dovice, 17 Oct 2016Camera on my G5 was superb so imagine this is even better. Just wish V20 had wireless charging... moreI think LG won't do wireless charging to avoid issue like Samsung Note 7 and selected S7 Edge that combust. LG will follow the old school because their target customers is the people who love changing batteries. Stick with Samsung if you like wireless charging but if you want good quality of music in affordable DAP price you can try LG.
No local warranty if I buy it imported for the UK. LG really don't want my money...
they're not saying it, but obviously they have given up on G5
LG always comes with the best smartphone cameras. This camera is gorgeous
Anonymous, 17 Oct 2016Note 7 killer. Oh wait... LOL, I guess not everybody gets it :-)
afr, 17 Oct 2016Why it's not available in Europe? What am I supposed to buy now Note 7 is no more? Anyone from the uk or europe or worldwide can buy the international version of the LG V20 from clove.co.uk

Camera on my G5 was superb so imagine this is even better. Just wish V20 had wireless charging, essential really for my needs. Got 5 pads around my pad! Got a Galaxy S7 instead, but if LG or someone releases a wireless charging back I will happily swap S7 for a V20. S7 camera is not too shabby either, but no wide angle.
Xiaomi have had these features for nearly 2 years, along with another cool feature called Omnifocus(refocussing on objects after the fact in the photo, just like a Lytro camera). It's actually all provided by Qualcomm, built into SD800 and above chips. Xiaomi even gave the features as an update to their older Mi3 & Mi4 "as" it was announced with the Mi Note. So actually any manufacturer that doesn't use it are just lazy and LG is way too slow. So slow I can't even find it in Qualcomm's news feed anymore.

Damn! Man that's one heck of a camera. Wish it releases soon for a good price instead of high rates demanding ppl sell kidneys n stuff
RickyG512, 17 Oct 2016looks good, hows it looking for the UK?I doubt they will mate. Not an Android fan & not a LG fan but I am sure that this handset would be of been a hit here in the UK. I was intrigued by the V10 & now this one has me even more intrigued with the better camera.
Considering mentioned ultimate 130db flac audio recording in this device as best is not right I think, even if its great on paper, when compared to lumia 950/XL, lumia's recording feels more natural and true to life. Wonder if there is some explanation for it... Is the difference in boosting/lowering of frequencies? Mystery.
