No, bud, the reason a lot of people refuse to give up the headphone jack isn't just quality. Buds are annoying to deal with, the quality does suck, and there's tons of latency so you can't play games very well on the phone with audio seconds behind.
Bluetooth and AAC suck, that's why we stay to the jack.
I'll not be long and try to make it short...As years of using iPhone and then switching to Android... I had great experiences with old LGs and specially OnePlus (but to be honest camera set up was always more or less a miss). Now that Huawei has ban from Google (also HONOR = best value performer), I'm happy to see LG is back. This phone gives you most important features FIRST. Great battery, Solid screen (and best is that IT'S FLATT), great overall audio experience, best processor and it's not overpriced. So as I'm from EU and I use a lot Google services and I don't like other generic Chinese products (XIAOMI, VIVO, OPPO,...and as I said OnePlus lost me when turned back to loyal comunity!!!), I'm left to either LG or Sammy. But Samsung cheats Europeans with it's own EXYNOS instead of Qualcom's BEST!?!?!?! In my opinion I was first shocked when LG left out some of features, but then after a while, they did BEST compromise and deserve to BE BACK. LG just PLEASE improve your UPDATE policy AND I'm absolutely sure you'll surpass competitors (only decent is left of Google = HUAWEI / HONOR).

You are really clueless. You can't even fact check in your fanboy rage ...
Europe gets the Exynos ... Exynos is worse version .... it suffers most of the issues ... do I have to continue?
Only regions like NA get the better Snapdragon version ... where do you think (If you are even capable of such a concept) petition originated?
At least read it, sign it if you agree like I did --- and breathe ... read ... understand.
... but to repeat my point. Samsung S20 series not that good != make Sony phones better.
Every device is unique and has unique bugs and broken features ... Xperia 1 II was even delayed to June ... guess what they are fixing.

No bashing - deliberately and repeatedly bashing the same brand
No trolling - deliberately antagonizing other brand/model users
Don't tell me you are not guilty of these. And Xperia I II is not even out yet. On paper it looks good but how do you know that it will perform well in real life?
Why did they removed QHD+ resolution on this phone??
I don't underestand, this phone got everything but not the quad hd resolution which is essential for a flagship... Disappointed
Wondering how’s gsmarena doing brightness measurement since s20 ultra only reach 731 nits in auto brightness.
Shanti Dope, 19 Apr 2020Honestly disappointed not to see the Xperia 1 Mk II in the alternatives. It's seriously the on... morephones with 21:9 format should burn in hell, boycott, they can keep profiting on sheeps while providing tiny screens as much as they like, not for me. Go and see how much bigger the S10 plus screen is with 6.4'' vs the 21:9 BS in the MKii, DON'T look at the diagonal, look at the surface area!
YUKI93, 19 Apr 2020It's not out for sale to the public yet, so we have to wait for the Xperia 1 ii to be official... moreYeah I know. But what I'm just saying is that it deserves to be mentioned as the best alternative for the V60 ThinQ in terms of pure versatility, which is one of the absolutely no-compromise flagship phone of early 2020. Heck, it can satisfy more fans with its no-cutout display and proper cinemawide aspect ratio, which is perfect for watching most Netflix movies on the go.

You're literally defending a clearly failing product and try to salvage its laughable and inexcusable faults even at such price. Blind fanboyism is one thing, but yours is next level that I can't even call it ignorance anymore, because it's far worse than that.
You really need some help now before it's too late.
It was the worst? What's your basis? Or is it just another made-up nonsense to try and look like you actually know something? Either way, that's still far from reality, because while Sony phones have never had the best audio output in the business, it was never one of the worst, NOT even close by any means. Well at least for now, what matters is that they've made the bold decision to bring it back while Samsung decided to abandon it completely, so if you say Samsung is still better in that aspect, you really need to get slapped real hard already.
Of course I said the Xperia 1 Mk II wouldn't be everyone's choice, that's why I said it may not be as good as many other phones in some aspects, but even with such compromises, it definitely would never be as bad as the S20 Ultra, which I don't even freakin' know at what aspect it's actually good at. Even the cameras aren't the best in the business, as I have used them by myself in a Samsung store and I've seen many other phones perform far better.
Exactly what did I say that weren't right?
Green tint problems do exist.
Exynos 990 is a really bad chipset.
Camera focusing problems still exists (only improved by software, NOT FIXED FFS).
Battery life is really disappointing for a phone with such battery capacity.
Those things I've mentioned are pretty much based on real life testings performed by real owners who have personally used the phone as their daily driver. You'd think I'd believe you more than real people that actually own the phone? In fact, I don't even know who the hell are you, and you just come around replying nonsense to me in attempts to defend your lousy product that even Samsung themselves are probably being ashamed of already.
Anonymous, 19 Apr 2020This is an LG thread. Who cares about your Sony fanboyism and Samsung prejudice?This is a comment section, so obviously anything is accepted for as long as it doesn't violate any posting rule.
I didn't even ask for your nonsense opinion anyway, so who cares about you?
Anonymous, 20 Apr 2020Green tint issue only exist on some S20 ULTRA phones.
Sony has piss poor charging speeds, lac... moreProblem exists to those that were unfortunate enough to have paid $1400 for a faulty product. Man, even iPhones don't get that bad for similar prices.....
Charging speeds is mainly part of the fact that most people charge their phones overnight, so even a blazing fast charging would be pointless and would degrade the battery much faster. Besides, it's the Qnovo Charging tech that does the slowing down. Turn it off and it charges at normal speeds, definitely faster than iPhones per say.
Well if you want your battery to last in less than a year or so, then go charge your phone at wattages that lithium batteries hate.
The hell are you saying???? Xperia 1 Mk II and even the Xperia 1 and 5 last year have telephoto lenses, are you delusional or what???
Lack of availability has nothing to do with the phone itself being anything bad. Great things don't always come around.
It's like saying Toyota cars are better than Ferraris because of lack of availability.
Phones can now be imported unlocked overseas, and often they cost much less even with import taxes.
Ever since 2016, Sony has been using 120Hz displays for mid range to flagships. Heck, the XZ2 Premium even goes further with a 144Hz one.
See for yourself. https://www.phonearena.com/news/sony-xperia-phones-120hz-refresh-rate-frame-rate-hidden-mode_id103915
And the Xperia 1 Mk II has Motion Blur Reduction, which greatly enhances motion to provide 90Hz-like experience, similar to their Bravia TVs, which are btw, class-leading in motion smoothing (also called "MotionFlow").
So in order to maximize the S20 Ultra, one must go through the hassle of entering adb commands to enable a feature that Samsung should've provided right from the start?
I wouldn't do it anyway, given how bad the battery life is even at FHD+ 120Hz. A less-than-a-day worth of battery life might even plummet to barely half a day lol.
The whole world besides Europe will be getting Exynos version, so that's the variant that most people have access to, and to ask as much as the Snapdragon variant for literally an inferior general performance is a big crime to the society and they could actually get sued and not get away with it if one files a case for it. Anyway, you're happy using a 2020 flagship phone that costs like a 2020 flagship phone, but at best, performs like a 2019 flagship phone for about an hour, then a 2016 flagship phone after several hours. LMAO truth hurts when it's so real.
YUKI93, 19 Apr 2020Sorry, the Samsung S20 camera is just exactly the same as the V60 despite the fake telephoto c... moreexactly what I meant to say , But the site reviews says lg lack telephoto but samsung s20 review have telephoto camera!! , the same goes for charging speed
calling s20 charging to be good but v60 the same charging speed slow !!
Major flaw: The LTE/NR bands are locked down to a single carrier, just like crappy telco-controlled phones from 15 years ago. Forget switching carriers or traveling. The T-Mobile phone won't even work outside of North America.
LG's Android implementation on this new phone is a mess. Bugs during setup and data transfer from a V40, LG's own File Manager is incompatible and won't even load on the device, and Bluetooth volume controls between devices and individual apps are very poor. Controls work half the time, and not others for device volume control. Losing dual front facing cameras for wide angled selfies was a very poor product decision, and waters down the versatility of this phone. Overall, disappointing experience for someone who has had every V series device since the initial launch.
