Turned in my note 7 today to preorder the V20 and to my surprise the local Radio Shack already had 2 in stock and offered me 1 and I took it. It's not a Note 7 but is built very solid and has a beautiful display. Micro sd card slot and removable battery is a nice option and i just couldn't find anything else I was going to be happy with. The tiny always on display is a nice touch also

After 2 Note 7's and then an S7Edge which i truly didn't like I went to a Sprint Corporate store yesterday and traded that in for an LG V20.

 

Great phone. The screen to me is so much more useful without those stupid curved sides. Build quality id excellent and I far prefer the aluminum to the glass back.

 

Battery has been excellent with almost no loss when idle.

 

I wear hearing aids and all phones are tough for me on the earpiece speaker and the little bottom speakers but so far, this is the best and clearest device for my ears that I have ever had.

 

WIFI calling works perfectly. WIFI in general is the fastest I have experienced....definitely beats my previous Samsung devices.

 

This phone runs much smoother than either the N7 or S7E did for me.

 

As for the screen....different but beautiful. I have it set with the blue light filter set to low to lower the color temp from the normal way to high 9000 K temp. As a photographer, the images on this look as good as they did on my Samsung devices....just a little bit different.

I am so used to Samsung's TouchWiz ui it's hard to get used to the plain LG ui. But I have to say the phone itself is very nice. Apps open quickly, the camera is great, and the battery is decent.

Can any report on how the antenna is on the v20? I upgraded my LG G2 to a Nexus 6 few month before the G4 came out. Then when the G4 came out I got it. I've been using a G4 since it came out. I purchased my V20 on Monday and I'm hoping the performance is better than the N6 and G4. Both of them only connect to 1900 3G or 1x800 in area I could sit on B25 or B26.

Is their any selection possible for 3xCA on the ##debug# or ##data# screens? Screen shots would be great!! Thanks

The firmware does have support for 3xCA, but more work is needed. 653a44488d381f682368cda0924e2357.jpg6ed7fbf81707446589f95e8e5ef290fe.jpg288119c03cc167e4ea1ed4195dc82212.jpg

 

My speed tests showed 3xCA to be equal or slower to CA. LG was first with B41. Hopefully again. There could also be other settings needed.

 

I tried it at two sites.

    • Ah, I see.  Thanks for those details! It is great to see some posts on this subject.
    • I was reading the FCC filing for the Pixel 6 yesterday and saw that it included n258 - I was wondering what that was. That will be my next phone so nice to know it will support this new spectrum. 
    • The decommissioning of Sprint sites has started, the optimistic worrying starts about which sites they will keep and convert. Only 2 out of the 3 B41 sectors are on Cellmapper, and 0 B25/26 sectors. I think another site near me also got turned off/decom'd, but I haven't checked it yet. I guess its time to start paying more attention to Sprint sites... Link to street view of the site via Google Maps ,  Link to the site in Cellmapper .

    • Haven't gone anywhere yet, so I can't speak to benefits.  My issue was that I was out on Monday morning and it appears that T-Mobile has turned off several Sprint towers near me.  I was sitting in a parking lot near Landmark Mall on -118 dBm Band 25 because two of the sites I used to connect to there were apparently not running, so data would barely move.  This is in addition to my home site which has been off for several weeks, but that wasn't an issue because I don't use wireless data at home.  But if they're starting to turn off Sprint sites and leave holes, then there's really no alternative. So far, I've only seen T-Mobile, but that makes sense since I've only been home and my home site is gone on Sprint, so the site I had been connecting to was a lot weaker.  I'll have to see when I'm out and about, possibly this weekend. When ROAMAHOME came out, I had that removed and blocked from my account since T-Mobile's network is so lousy, so my lines were not automatically pushed to MULTOCN.  I had to have the block removed and then MULTOCN manually added.  That's probably not typical. - Trip
    • Are you seeing a benefit from MOCN?  Is it true that MOCN is highly biased to using T-Mobile towers?  Should everyone with a non-5G phone ask for MOCN? I had the impression it was supposed to be automatic now, perhaps even without being entered explicitly.  Is this not the case?  I realize that it may take some time to draw conclusions so if you do not know yet that is fine. Thanks!
