LG V20: LG's Next V10? (LG-LS997)

Recommended Posts

Better camera than Note 4? That's good to know. I thought the Note 4 was a pretty good camera.

It was a concern for me too but I took several side by side indoor pics using auto focus for both phones. It was a complete landslide victory for the V20. I can't say outdoor pics would yield the same result because I sold the Note 4 before I could test those but I'm guessing the result would be similar.

I agree the camera is very good

The video quality was slightly better on the note 7 but the V20 still has a very good picture.

How did you get the MSL? I didn't see it in any of my documents.

Picked up this phone on Saturday and I love it so far. One of my favorite features so far is it shows a battery indicator in the status bar for my blue tooth headset. Many improvements over my aging Nexus 6, and the free TV doesn't hurt.

It seems like such a small thing to like but none of my Samsung phones showed the battery life of Bluetooth headphones and its very handy info to have especially when you use them for the gym. I don't have to worry about my music stopping half way thru a workout. I was pumped when I saw that the phone had this indicator.

Other than the display issues I had with the V20, I miss the larger display size and the reliability to it for the most part. I've noticed some quirks to the Axon 7 that with things that worked better on the V20.

Got the LG V20 on Black Friday. Sprint store was well stocked with employees, like 10 to 12. Unfortunately, I was the only one waiting. (This is in a city with about 129k pop.) Loving the phone so far. I miss the stylus of the Note, but I know I'll get more use out of the secondary display than the stylus. Do wish the primary display was OLED. Awesome audio.

 

My free TV came in. Debating whether to keep. I read about the RGBW on it. Enter the RGB vs RGBW debate.

OTA links are probably on Reddit or XDA. It's signed by Google, so you can sideload it confidently knowing it hasn't been tampered with.

This update seems to have broken network signal guru. Cell mapper, signal check pro, lte discovery, signal detector appear to work.  Reloading app did nothing(uninstall/reinstall)

 

Message is: Cannot get configurations ! Please check internet connections.

No, but it did previously have limited functionality while unrooted.

Tonights 3xCA limited tests appear to show that the 3xCA setting is no longer effectively throttling the phone, but there are no significant speed improvements at three sites in Columbus Ohio.

I'm in a CA market. What should the settings be to ensure 3x CA is on?

    • As you guys are all excited to find a 10mhz carrier, I found a small cell popping up in the storage room at my office. They replaced the power panel the other day and brought in fiber. Today they are putting the hole in the roof (and patching the leak around the boiler.)

    • Yesterday evening I had a notification that I had an update to "Carrier Services" in the Google Play store.  Any idea what this might be for, given that Google doesnt exactly give great descriptions of these sort of things.  I figured it must be something vaguely Sprint related, but wanted to see if anyone here had any insights.   Thanks!
    • So, this thread isn't very active... How is the radio on this bad boy?  The 3 XL will be delivered on Wednesday, :D.  Wish it had VoLTE out of the box, here's to hoping it will at least get it 🤞🤞🤞🤞🤞.
    • Here's AT&T Band 5 in Prince William County:  https://imgur.com/a/A6x70Xe I tried locking to Band 5 in other places a few times along the way and did not see any additional Band 5.  This site also has Band 14, on top of the displayed 17/2/4/30.  I wonder if it has Band 66 as well.  (Didn't think to check.) Couldn't get a good look at the antenna as it was getting dark and it was cloudy and I was on I-66.  Sorry. - Trip
