Just bought this phone today after doing some deep research. I was going to buy another Samsung but decided against it because the audio area just lacks with Samsung but I remember in the back back back days when I used to have LG the audio was always reliable and versatile. The only issues I've ever had with every single LG phone is overtime talking on the phone stops working you have to put it on speaker and talk but it's a easy fix with the use of Google. Can't wait to use it.
Lg, my son, listen, I know you want to make phones for monsters like marques brownlee and Rhett McLaughlin whose hands are like the paws of an ice giant. But pls remember the handlets of the world. Think of us. A 5.15/5.2" v20 would be the perfect phone ever made to handlets.
First of all, I want to thank you for showing me this amazing phone. It's literally my dream specs, for an absolutely RIDICULOUS price.I agree, this phone is extremely underrated. Even new phones like the galaxy s8 and iPhones (don't care about those, but, you know....) can't compete with this phones sheer VALUE!
Heyyy, there! Thanks for this review! I learned a lot about my new phone; just got the v20 yesterday. Looks like with the new update, I can change the second screen icons up top! Thanks again for reviewing the underdog phones!
bannerbomb1 I'm still using my LG V20. Got this on its launch date. It depends... I keep it because of the LG keyboard and its easy to get screenshots (Capture+) which I really like. I've been falling it off on the ground for a numerous time (clumsy) but it's still working like new and it's best to get tempered glass to protect the screen. Other than that its a decent phone for me
I like the phone but I hate that the speaker is at the bottom of my phone. I normally stamd my phone up when I'm watching videos on social media. that means that the speaker gets muffled when propped up. Also the screen button on the back is awkward. You have to contort your hand to hit that button. For people with large hands like myself its tough to touch. they should have kept the screen button on the edge. I also prefer having a physical previous screen button. the touch screen version will often hide away in apps
Upgraded from my (thoroughly shit) Nexus 5 to the V20 just a few days ago now, and, holy shit. I don't care about Phones and I should've thrown away the Nexus 5 a couple years ago but the V20 is an excellent combo of flagship or near-flagship Hardware in a nice package and good-enough OS and interface for the average Gmail/JewTube/Web/GPS casual user like myself.
I almost got a Galaxy J7 or similar low-mid Phone until I saw that the LG V20 was on sale for $400-ish and it seemed to have the best hardware features that were relevant to my uses.
Couldn't be happier and it's a massive leap in capability and general frustration-free, mindless browsing and in, especially, powering my Headphones and Line Out. Now I need to try to find something similar to EqualizerAPO for Win8.
In 2017 this is the best mid-range phone you can buy. I've been using it as my main device for 1 week, and it works perfectly. Not as good as a modern flagship, but if you wanna save some money it's the phone to get
s.s cringe Pros: huge screen and second screen is also good, bright display, decent camera, and decent battery life, and pretty cheap. Cons: Its now outdated, and there is now better phones available like the v30. But overall the phone works well had it for a year
Yeah i saw that.. and theres even complaints for a phone i previously used (lg g3) but in all of the firmware versions i went through, that was something id never experienced. might be a verizon thing cuz i only got non-carrier specific models. if it were a standard feature of android, im sure you would be able to toggle it on/off.
and that setting i was talking about, i got that confused with the 30-attempt pin to boot the device
The reason why this nobody wants to buy this phone is because LG has betrayed their customers trust.
LG has not seriously resolve the problems of their previous phone model like G4 and V10, which were died off or bootloop problems after first year of usage.
LG refused to take full responsibility and denied it's their products problem alone.
Yeah but its because of the screen size isn't all screen the top is filled with what apps you have on and then the bottom just like the note 8 is filled with the back home and recent that takes up at least a 10th of the phone from the bottom of the entire phone cause of the extra built plus the bottom screen isn't useful because that's where the home buttom the back and recent is always there.
I really enjoyed the LG Leon I owned for a day. Even at 480p I found because of the rich blacks, smaller size, and overall inviting design I could recommend it to a lot of casual users. Also I believe having a 480p screen keeps us patient and more content when a 720p phone is used.
I just bought one, they're amazing. It's snappy, the camera quality is beautiful, but the only caveat is the factory unlocked ones dont seem to get updates often; Oreo should come out for it around late 2017/ Q1 2018 though. 10/10 would recommend
