Freddo, 30 Mar 2020I have LG V20 with me and the battery always off when its 20% or... moreIs the battery original/genuine OEM LG battery? An original LG OEM battery comes in translucent plastic with paper seal. If you bought your V20 with the battery packed in other packaging, it is fake. Your experience where the V20 shuts down even at 20% or 15% battery is symptom of a fake battery. Now if your V20 phone heats up excessively and drains the battery fast, you may also have a corrupted firmware or a misbehaving app or apps. Factory reset phone in this case and excessive heat up and battery drain will resolve (assuming you have a genuine OEM LG V20 battery installed).
Here's how a brand new OEM/original (not fake) LG V20 battery is packed (note the translucent plastic and paper seal at 4min 13sec into the YouTube video below) :
Any other packaging used in your V20 battery means the battery is fake (even if it looks just like the original). You are better off buying third party extended batteries than buying those fake batteries that look like the original but is actually fake because it did not come in original manufacturer packaging (translucent plastic with paper seal shown in the YouTube video above - 4min 13sec into the video).

Hackers are actively exploiting them. When you do online transactions - example, shop online with your credit card, a hacker can compromise your V20 and capture your credit card details, passwords, etc. using one of the many android vulnerabilities, discovered after the last LG V20 security patch. You don't have to do anything risky. Even just using your wifi or connecting to your bluetooth devices or tethering your mobile data or reading your email or browsing a shopping site can open your V20 to hacking attacks without you knowing it due to unpatched vulnerabilities (security patch not updated). It's as easy as that. No need to open an email with malicious attachment or browse a torrent or malicious site. There are lots of many sophisticated ways hackers can get into a phone with very old security patch despite the user being very careful and even without requiring risky user behavior. Here's a list of all security vulnerabilities unpatched in the V20 with old security patch.

MadMax, 26 Mar 2020I Love my V20. Great sound, pictures, video. I would commend it.I love mine too despite being stuck in Nougat (ESA-XX unit) and Oreo (AME-XX unit). No longer my main phone because it's no longer safe for online transactions (credit card, banking). But I sure miss the master remote (IR blasterl), the outstanding audio quality, the excellent camera with superb manual controls and the video out capability using USB C to hdmi adapter. Currently using a Samsung A71 now which is a great V20 replacement although lacking the IR blaster, the manual camera cobtrols, and video out capability. The removable battery, I don't miss as much because the A71 lasts more than twice longer than two 3200mAh LG V20 removable batteries and because the A71 charges superfast, feom 0%-100% in just 1.3hrs.

They... moreEven if Samsung's midrange offerings don't offer the level of update speed and frequency as Android one or Pixel phones, I can't think of a phone worse in updates than LG. LG is down there, lower than the absolute lowest. It's beyond zero level really. It's horrendous, non-existent software update support even with regard to expensive flagship phones like my V20 (-ESA-xx) is WORSE than in my $150, entry level Xiaomi Redmi 4x phones. Samsung's upper midrange phones get Android version updates and security updates even if not the fastest, is up near the top.

Anonymous, 10 Mar 2020Does it hold a day? I'm using the 6.400 mAh PERFINE since two years and two months. At May, the third anniversary of my trusty V20 maybe change it by one new PERFINE with the same mAh.

It's good quality sound, though certainly not better than the V20. With the proper equalizer settings, the quality difference doesn't matter as much especially when you consider that it costs around half the V20's launching price.
