My LG V20 suddenly hanged and died today after I got it for 2 months as an extra phone. Reminds me of my last G4. LG really sucks in their quality. On hindsight, probably should not have recontract the V20. Time to waste my time to head down to their service centre with my fairly new phone. Lucky my main phone is the S8+.

For those experiencing image retention issues, you can try this solution. Just download this app sFilter in play store and enable it with 10% filter.

Link to app

It works for me! Problem solved instantly.

I also thinking of selling my v20, but I have 6 or 7 phone cases, 2 addition batteries and desktop charging kit, not sure will anyone want to buy all of these...
Buy sometime think back v20 could be the last phone with removable batteries, dual SIM + micro SD, performance still very good,.battery life still acceptable. I would want to keep as a spare, just that I have a few spare phones...

I beg to differ.

the phone is really a power guzzler. 1 phone full batt and 1 additional battery can't even last me for a day.

I was really very frustrated with it.

I think you should just sell the phone at market price, and throw all the accessories in to sweeten the deal.

the only thing I miss is the super wide angle lens.

Any user experience the followings :

1. The remote control app will emptied all created remotes every few months.
Happened few times already. Any fix?

2. The wifi speed is not performing to its max. I have link speed of 433M. While doing speedtest.net, can only achieve 130M down/200M up. Only once in a while, the speed can reach 280M down/280M up, which I think should be the optimal speed. Its even slower then an iphone 6 tested side by side... An iphone 8 easily achieve 300+M up/down. I'm on Singtel 1G with AC Plus.

Any comment?

PS: My unit more than a year old liao.

1. I use irplus as remote control app. It works fine without any issues. I have 4 remote profiles, for 2 TVs, AV receiver and AC.

2. For wifi all application using internet connection are okay. Not tried speedtest in sometime.

My unit is also more than an year old. I think the features are much more than iPhone can ever offer. Dual sim, SD card, removable battery, FM radio and IR blaster what more do we need :-)

1. Thanks for the remote app, will try it out.

2. For using apps/browsing, again, a side-by-side comparison with iphone 6 shows that my V20 loads slower. No idea what is wrong with my phone, or maybe its just how it works?

Anyway, thanks for sharing your thought on this.

I realised certain apps can cause battery to drain fast. Smart doctor detected the app. I uninstalled n power back to normal.

I am currently using my V20 as a DAP. At least it drives my Q701 nicely with a 10k ZeroLemon to go with. Aww yiss. But not much other usage.

Same here.
Comparing with DAP-only and this. I found myself using V20 most. Wahahah.
Hopefully Oreo coming or at least patch the security level.
