Phone has ghosting issues and poor signal reception. I don't recommend it
ROSHOWN DOUGLAS (3 days ago)
To me its not just the phone thats underrated its LG on a whole. Before i was all about Samsung. But I decided to get the V10 and before i got it i was looking to buy an S7edge but there was a wopping $150-300 difference and when you compare the features you'd have much more fun with the V10 you have much more customizable features, the secondary screen is super useful and the battery lasts all day. Plus its still pushing Android Nougat. So you don't have to buy a new phone every 1-2 years. So without a doubt i know the V20 will be worth it.

No 5G and the V20 is terrible on the web. Too heavy, too big and ugly.

I have one, and I love it. I just acquired it and I plan to keep it for the next two years. After that I might go back to cheap basic phones. I refuse to pay 800 or more for any phone for any reasons, it is madness I got this one for a little over 200, for just about a 2 year old phone, but it in mint condition. The removable battery is dope, I am sorry. The iPhone and the rest with no sd expansion and after two years forcing you to buy a new phone. As far as the secondary screen not being reachable with one hand. who still try to use one hand on these big phones, ridiculous and it is after all very customizable, so I do not know why you have issues with that. It is clear you like the phone and l like your reviews along with a few others, but sometimes some what you want and expect is just a little unreasonable. I guess it is based on trying to make everything perfect. it is not happening, so quick trying thing to criticize unless it is serious performance or hardware issue.

I just got one, coming from a G3. I really like it but there seem to be some drawbacks from the G3. The V20 speaker is absolutely terrible, the G3 is twice as loud and sounds better, more treble and not as dull sounding. The camera flash LEDs are pathetic on the V20, the G3 is about 4x brighter and has a more natural color temperature. I would expect these LEDs on a $100 phone, not a $700 phone. That was very disappointing. The V20 camera is alright, but the G3 produces much sharper images and video, and seem to have better contrast than the V20. Also, the G3 seems to consistently get better reception than the V20, but I suspect this is because of the metal back cover on the V20. On the positive side, the V20 is MUCH faster (I can't emphasize this enough, it's like going from a Pentium 3 to an i7), has a brighter, more colorful screen, and much better audio output through the 3.5mm jack. Although I had to download a 32-bit audio player before I noticed a difference. The second screen IS useful, but I wish it were more customizable. I have small hands but I have no problem utilizing the bigger screen. Overall, it's a good phone but they cheaped out on some things compared to the G3.

IG : Ihatelandsnails (2 months ago)
My V20 has been awful with battery life. Dies at 20-30%, the battery, when fully charged will go from 100-30 in literally just over 2 hours. All I do is listen to music and watch movies and at that my brightness is set to auto. Also it's had a major Ghosting issue. So... No this phone isn't worth it which is why I switched to the iPhone 8 plus

Vasa Piano Covers (2 months ago)
The reason why people don't talk about the LG anymore is because LG screwed too many of its customers by making bad quality hardware which resulted in a massive bootloop problems.They scammed its customers and now their phones are not being sold as much,they got what they deserved.

Arif Aziz (3 months ago)
10 reason why I want to buy LG V20 1) Spec as good as recent smartphones released so I can use this phone for at less 3 years. 2) Easy repair DIY due to removeable back cover so I don't have to use heatgun to tear it down. 3) Quad Dac for the best audio output and also can record high quality sound! 4) Design mainly depand on your own spectation but as for me 2k resolution on 5.7 inch screen looks perfectly good. 5) pretty rugged phone and don't have to worry about it since the back cover made of matel (not glass). 6) USB type C for fast charging with removeable battery that can be replace within 1 minute from 0% to 100%! 7) Don't have to worry about battery life reduction due to removeable battery so this phone can be use for long time. 8) Rear Camera is superb for content creator with manual mode! support 4k/30fps video recording. 9) Camera capture high quality image as good as iphone 7 and obviously better then iphone 6s. 10) Price is so cheap you can get it for 270 dollar with all good stuff so woth it!

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.
Msdj Jdndn (1 month ago)
J Love hmm those are some problems I haven't heard before.. Did you try playing with manual mode for the pictures? And did you try to find an apk for the music player outside of the play store?
J Love (1 month ago)
Msdj Jdndn honestly I could have kept my note 4. The quality of the screen is dull compared to the samsung. I got an unlocked art version and it didn't come with the lg music player I had to download one from the play store so the audio is actually worse than the samsung. My phones Wi-Fi or Bluetooth gets turned off a lot because of that bar that's active even when your screen is off and the camera quality is yuck. I used my samsung to take photos of jewelry but this phone doesn't capture light or quality well at all. The only good thing about the phone space honestly. I think I'm going to just buy another samsung note 4.

I love my V20 I had the V10 it got really hot and it burned after only 8 months. That's why I was sceptical about the V20 but it such a much better phone

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!

Rine O (5 months ago)
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
PapaGeorg10 (5 months ago)
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
