        Anonymous, 09 Jul 2022Honestly, split screen or even dual screen are so useless.... moreSplit screen is useful for gaming and watching movies. But yeah they consume a lot of battery.

                    What US networks can you use the phones on? I thought in the US they wouldn't work with the VOlte and 3g shutdown issues.

                            rizki1, 09 Jul 2022Why you give me these over 2 years old device to get androi... moreBecause it completely contradicts your point of "cheap phones get it early this year". Of course they would or else people like you would bash them about having phone with an older version of Android OS. There are people out there who don't buy a cheap phone and replace it every year.

                            And btw, I stand corrected about the Mi 10 flagship as it does indeed get Android 12 OS update. Can't say the same about Mi 9 flagship though.

                                Nowadays, this UX feels more like Stock Android but with a little shake up to the design, while still being light.

                                As for the G8s, that indeed is true. The S9 Plus was a full featured flagship, whereas the G8s was basically a value flagship. The reason why the S9 Plus easily outsold it and defeated it is beacuse of brand recognition and marketing, else I think the G8s would have been the victor.

                                (PS: I still do think a slight redesign to LG UX will make it more appealing and fun to use, but the current look still holds up in 2022 somehow)

                                      I have a V50 thinq and I am so happy that they are keeping to their word with the updates. I love this phone and honestly I am worried about my replacement options. The audio jack and hi-fi quad DAC especially are really really nice features and harder to find these days. I am going to hang on to it for as long as I can because it really ticks all of the boxes for me, nice screen, good cameras, sd card expansion, audio jack and hi-fi dac, good microphones, reliable back mounted fingerprint scanner and decent battery life. I guess maybe I should look into sony xperia phones but damn the price is rough on those. I was quite saddened by LGs departure from the smartphone industry.

                                        Anonymous, 09 Jul 2022Yeah, the current LG UX 9 is so underratedyeah true bro even by gsmarena when they released it they said the settings menu is like one ui then next year Samsung released new one ui with transparent notification panel which was introduced in lg 1 year before and they talked like its beautiful and good, they didn't say it copied. and many reviewers said LG g8 camera is not good as even s9 plus but i had s9 plus now my bro using it and i m using lg g8s which is a midrange phone with flagship processor camera sensors and speakers are midrange and still it can perform equally in camera and speaker with s9 plus and lg g8 have flagship camera sensor and idk how it got beated by s9 plus while midrange camera sensor lg g8s equalled the s9 plus. most of the reviewers lied about lg and consumers also believed it except lg fans and now we lost competition.
