Thanks for replying! Your V50 video did convince me to seriously consider the V50. How does the V50 panels compare to the S8? I feel that the S8 panel is good enough for me.
Beats the S8 in almost every manner.

I am wondering how responsive is the overall phone? I just tried the V40 at a Singtel shop (I don't know why it is still there) and it lags quite abit and screen is not as good as my S8 Plus.
Can't trust demo units. Fresh android sets will always feel snappy.

Those who used this phone hw is the battery life?
Solid. With only heavy whatsapp, and some chrome surfing + GAGT + phone calls + lazada (which drains battery at an alarming rate for me), I ended the day (7am to 11pm) with just above 70% battery. Running android 10, no duel screen, face ID only when screen is on.

Running both duel screen and camera (main screen camera and secondary screen quickpic preview) do, however, drain battery at an alarming rate. I pulled that off from 75% to 30% within 2 hours.
Otherwise, normal duel screen don't really drain that fast. If you plug the duel screen on, tye main screen lowers its resolution to be same as the secondary screen, so in some ways it accidently somehow "save" a wee bit of battery.

If it changes, will it affect the call usage or?
some areas only has good LTE coverage and 3G coverage is non existence. with that, no call can be established. tried that. however whatsapp call is fine as it uses LTE.

Nope.

Anyone knows if the G8X (aka V50s) will be officially coming to the Singapore market?
I only see up to V40 on our teleco's websites.

Seems like a cheap way to get a foldable phone.

What casing/skins/screen protector are you guys using with the LG V50s? I got the phone recently and I am looking for ways to protect the dual screen casing.

I understand where you are coming from. Some more it is a V40 unit so it should have been there looping for 1 year 6 months. Anyway, the price for V60 is quite good man. USD 799 though with the exception of the chipset, everything seems a slight stepdown from the V50.

can try to Amazon. there is this skin + screen protector name Gobukee. however the protection is minimal i feel. if you want to protect the main phone itself, SUpcase Unicorn beetle UB Pro came out with G8X version. can be used with V50S.

I check that out. Reviews like quite bad ah. Maybe its user problem. See if have more brands or can mix and match with a few casing or screen protector too?
