Good phone, but a few niggling issues...

published

So I bought this phone in Feb 2017 from JB. It's been a pretty decent phone, but I have had some serious issues with performance which I gather is due to the widely known issue of deteriorating thermal paste within the phone. This started about 12 months after I bought the phone.

What this means is that performance is degraded (especially on hot days) and the screen suffers from some pretty nasty burn-in. I reinstalled the OS on my phone and while it has improved performance slightly, it really still has some serious issues that I would rather not have.

Nice to have

published

I have this phone neearly a year now, never have big issue with it.

I like the 2nd screen on the top, software OS automatic update few times, did not have any issues.

I have dropped it from pocket few times, still working and no crap screen.

Screen is big enough to read ebook in big size text, finger print scanner work usually (unless wet hand) and unlock screen fast.

Unlike Google Nexus 4 (<--- lots of issues and laggy) i had before, this is much much better phone.

Purchased in for $490.

Perfect for mobile videography

published

Great phone for photography and videography lovers, it offers a lot of manual control.
Multitask performance is pretty good, but battery life is very disappointed compared to others.
Excellent display, but phone is a little wide for my preference.

Purchased in for $430.

Its ok but not perfect

published

This is a good android phone. Ive always had samsung but fancied a change. What i like with this is the fingerprint security and its a very quixk phone. What I dont like is it freezes sometimes and the battery really is rubbish. Use the phone for the internet or playing music and it just drains the battery so be sure to bring your charging cable. 6 out of 10 from me.

Faulty screen

published

Brand new phone and has very bad screen retention/ghosting/burn. Don't understand how a new phone has this. Do a google search for screen burn LG V20 and you'll find this is a very common issue that most will suffer from. Other phones that have LG screens have also suffered the same fate (Google Pixel). Unfortunately I have lost faith in LG phones after constant G5 issues and now V20 issues. Ill be returning it and never getting another LG.
They also are extremely slow with updating software on their phone. V20 over 2 years old not 1 update.
Buy at own risk.

Meh

published

Had this phone little less than a year.
Love:
the camera is fantastic
removable battery is always handy
Solid construction

Hate
The screen looks like a cheap tv - dimly lit, unevenly lit and saturation could be better
Came with B&O earbuds but a cheap $20 philips earbuds sound way better
Lack of any software updates
LG service centre not easily accessible, at least not where I live

Great buy

published

I bought my V20 from Kogan for around $430. Great screen, fabulous battery - which is replacable, headphone socket, quick charge, neat, looks great, awesome price. What's not to like? Had it a year and still as good as new. LG make great phones and you don't pay the premium price of other manufacturers.

Excellent phone

published

This phone has a lovely 5.7 in screen and great cameras. It is exceptional for its audio and has a very fast processor. The dual sim cards mean it is adaptable to different circumstances such as travel between countries or using two services at the same time. I have recommended this phone to my friends and family
