I've honestly never seen one in the wild other than mine. Always see Samsung and iPhones only
Me either. I used to see a lot of LG phones, but the endless boot loop problems on the G series phones really hurt them I think.

Yes.

Ok it's been 30 minutes, what's the verdict? A real life review is required.

One of the main features I used before this is gone unless I can't find it to turn it back. I can't do Multi-screen. I hold down the button when trying to half screen apps and it doesn't work. That right there is enough to mess with me. I use it for when driving Uber/Lyft for having both apps open to turn off one if I get a request. Also I run Signal Check and Waze at the same time and can't do that. Not happy about that.

I had to search, because I couldn't figure it out either. Two things: they changed how you activate it, and gestures are disabled by default even if they were enabled in 9. That may not be required for multi-window to work, but I was used to using it. To turn that on, just search for gesture in settings and you can turn it on (I set to both buttons and gestures). Then, to use multi-window, you have to get to card/task switch view, then press and hold the title above the app you want to split, and select multi-window.

 

Why can't you run Waze and Signal Check at the same time? Do you mean in split screen (multi-window)?

Issue fixed. But yes. I run Signal Check at top with Waze at the bottom

So since messing with it for a few hours it is an adjustment to the changes.

Pros:

  • In Split screen I use to have Signal Check selected for it to update the tower information. No longer have that issue with Waze selected on bottom
  • Love the auto night mode option now (granted all apps don't utilize it I like it)
  • Like the new layout of drop down

pretty sure I'll find more

Cons:

  • Issue with Pandora and Google Music sounds like it is skipping. Has done this before on previous updates on other LG phones for me. Uninstalled Pandora still happening
  • Split screen seems more difficult to activate/deactivate
  • Still no hotspot button in the dropdown menu

Neutral

  • On the camera not sure I like the new selection of the three cameras

Will update if finding more

Heard from sprint CS that the V50 has been discontinued. Any other confirmation?

I wouldn't be surprised. Didn't see it selling anywhere else for a while.

It's not available on sprint.com anymore, but the V40 is.. I'm taking that as a sign. Good thing they practically gave the device to me, or I'd be feeling pretty upset. I suspect it's just because it doesn't support TMO's 5G bands, as my understanding is that the S20 5G devices do. I didn't see the OnePlus Pro 5G out there either - only the S20s.

I'm in the phx market and haven't been able to get on 5G any longer.  Is that the same for other v50 owners.

I miss Arizona, but I don't know if I'm ever going to get back for a visit. Would love to check out the old neighborhood in Chandler. Our old house is still there, but everything around it has changed significantly! There used to be cotton fields along the road I walked to gradeschool, that are now big housing subdivisions.

That is a strong possibility on that humidity.

    • One thing that occurred to me after my post is that I'm actually not sure if it was based on timing or based on changing my device.  My current device doesn't attempt to use SRLTE, so I'm guessing it uses VoLTE for 911 calls.  That might be the difference. - Trip
    • I didn't know that had changed, thanks.. very good to know for testing!
    • It has to be a new SIM, not a previously-activated one.  For a long time, Verizon would only let it connect to LTE for 90 days and then disable LTE access, so I have a pile of Verizon SIMs so I could toss and replace when my SIM after 90 days.  That stopped happening at some point, though I'm not clear when. - Trip
    • I just built this PoE and USB 3 upgraded WG3526 with an LM960 in it today   I am testing it on the two Kathrein antenna I put on my TrashMonster™ tower. It works great so far. I use 3 foot of LMR400 7/16 DIN male to SMA male. The cards are pretty on par with each other. They both get lots of aggregation combos, the Quectel is Eng samples only and the LM960 is on production revision 2, model A18 now. IMEI manipulation is more for Quectel if you need that for your plan, Telit I haven't figured that part out yet. The 960 is mPCIe so no adapters for most embedded router slots, the EM20 is M.2 so unless you get one of those fancy new routers I mentioned above you need an adapter. What other questions do you have for me?
    • How do you get your Verizon SIM to connect to LTE without active service? Mine will only connect to CDMA.       Pixel 2 can do NSG, but Pixels require a licensed/pay copy of NSG to band lock. Other phones supposedly don't. Google disables Qualcomm diagnostic mode, so NSG has to jump through some hoops to get it working. On the 4 they don't even include the driver for it, and you have to flash the userdebug vendor image every month. Pixels are fantastic for NSG and logging, except if you need to band lock and don't have a license. No other way to lock bands.   A lot of people in the NSG community really like one plus phones. They support a lot of bands, and play well with NSG. But I'm not sure how good Sprint support is with their older models (ie CDMA).   If band locking isn't super important to you, you could get a Pixel 3a since they're on sale. They support dual SIM, so you can log on two networks at once with Cellmapper. SCP doesn't support dual SIM yet, and seems to report data for the active data SIM. Neighbors will show both SIMs though usually.   Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
