I've honestly never seen one in the wild other than mine. Always see Samsung and iPhones only [emoji20]
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.

Ok it's been 30 minutes, what's the verdict? A real life review is required. emoji23.png
 

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.

It's working fine here in KC on my V50. Not driving to Phoenix to check there LOL [emoji23]

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.

    • 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!
