Best phone I've owned so far
I bought the H990ds online (which likely means it is a grey import). Chose this phone specifically because of the replaceable battery, as Niantic games are pretty hard on batteries, and I'm sick of having phones that are otherwise still useful if not for the dead battery *glances at HTC M8*.
- replaceable battery. I wish more phones had this.
- good camera (by phonecam standards). LG's camera app has excellent audio and video controls.
- second screen. I'm going to miss it when I inevitably have to replace the phone.
- replaceable batte...

I like the dual sim. It makes working away and holidays so much easier. The camera takes clear pictures from back and front. Battery life is good as log as you keep all apps switched off and reduce regular updates. What I have found though is that I cant use a fast charger. Both the batteries I used swelled up. It gets a small hot spot while charging and this causes the battery to expand. Only use the recommended charger- it is slow though. The usb/charging port is playing up after 18 months. It is a genetic defect with usb C ports- and is not...limited to LG alone. The screen has some grey areas on it. Not sure what is causing this. The apps are ok. I like the fitness app thats pre installed. Video quality is good. 4G on both sims work but I found that the phone might miss a call- all I receive is a missed call text. Easy to switch between sims but not easy to switch between data carriers.
Purchased in at JB Hi-Fi Retail Stores for $700.
Good phone, but a few niggling issues...
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
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
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
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.
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.
Had this phone little less than a year.
the camera is fantastic
removable battery is always handy
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
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.
It's good for it's price
I bought online 2017 Nov on ebay when discounted 20% plus 1.5% cash rewards.
Total paid $447
Big screen. replaceable batter, and the most important 3.5mm headphone jack.
Comparable hardware with Samsung S7.
once i experienced slow process on my V20. LG gave good response to support and guide me to solve the problem.
I like it.
The camera on this phone is amazing, the quality of the product is next to amazing. You can take stunning photos, the battery will last, it has dual sim capabilities. It supports Quantum Quick charge. This mobile is a flagship phone with amazing abilities. It smoothly plays games and the audio recording software on it is amazing.
hardware of this phone is perfect but this phone's software is make me disappointed because sometime this product got a error however made very very very strong hardware so , i would like to recommend this phone to every man who often drop they's goods it's very very strong kk
A great phone with a lot of functionality for the price.
- Big screen
- MicroSD expandable storage
- Secondary screen for notifications and extra buttons
- 3 Cameras for selfies, portrait and wide angle photos.
- Dual SIM
- USB C Quick Charging
- Price (Bought for $450 in August 2017)
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
I have been using this phone for 3 months now and I can honestly say it's best phone I've had. Feels like a flagship phone with a very reasonable price tag.
Initially I was worried about screen size being 5.7", but with it's narrow bezel it's perfect.
All apps are flying, camera is excellent, and that 2nd small notification screen on top is a great idea.
I'm not all sold on the built in in DAC for music. My G3 doesn't have it and music still sounds good on my Bose headphones.
USB-C charge is quick.
Finger scanner works like a charm.
Questions & Answers
I am thinking of buying LG V20 H990 from DWI Digital World Internationally.
Does this come with Bang and Olufsen earphones and is the box in the sealed retail packaging?
No it does not but you can ask this to the seller may be they do
Yes on both counts in my case. Prob. should make you aware that mine came with Chinese (I think) as the default language which was a slight fiddle to change to English, until I found a youtube video w...hich made it simple. Writing this on the device now, still think it's the best smartphone I've had.
Thanks, ended up buying from JB HiFi after reading all the bad review about the Dwi how they don't honor the warranty and phone retail boxes came open with the sticker ripped etc so I feared it might ...be a knock off. Anyway I only paid $40 more than DWI price. This is the best phone I've ever owned and good change from having Samsung Galaxy phones.
