AresinUAE, 04 Nov 2019Ive had g3, g4 and g6. All great phones that died within a year,... moreWell here in south Africa. Sony has pulled out of the country so now I have decide on LG due to the fact that Samsung and Huawei come with a free first screen repair which says alot about the brand and that it's flimsy... LG and Sony are actually the only 2 brands that are durable and long lasting...

  • Blablabla

Definitely gonna buy this baby coz i mostly like the dual screen for multitasking while im doing my work on the other screen & when im done i just can slide it out & put it inside my bag without having any weight burden on my pocket.

hey lg: when are you going to add wifi 6 / 802.11 ax to your handsets?

Anonymous, 04 Nov 2019B & HNovember 12...about two weeks after available by carrier (AT&T) it will be available at B&H, which seems to be THE online retailer for the latest LG phones. I got my V30s there a year ago.

aknsreddy, 04 Nov 2019Wish they added battery to accessory display. That would lasts l... moreIt would be waaay too heavy if they did that (it's already bad enough as even the base phone is 40g heavier than the V30). That's probably the main reason they kept the screens at 1080p only also.

How bout some real questions instead of the Samsung trollers...

Contemplating this phone but wow did the weight increase--we are now in Note 8 territory of 190+ grams just for the main phone itself. V30 was at 155g so doubt that was due to the battery size increase. The cameras also seem to have been upgraded and how nice is it to not have any camera hump to deal with.

For many people still, the main reason for this phone vs the others is the Quad DAC. However, the volume seems to be lower here than on the previous V series per your measurements (vs V30 and V40, which I currently have). That''s always been then case when in "regular" impedance mode, but 45+ ohm headphones will trigger hi-impeance mode with noticeably more power. Was that mode tested on this?

Sure would be nice if *EVER* LG would let us change our own impedance gain value! We are not stupid enough to put 8ohm IEMS on high impedance--but I doubt that option is offered here once again...

Can you show a screens shot of the audio options/effects pageof the Quad DAC to see if anything was added (or removed)?

Wish they added battery to accessory display. That would lasts longer than two days... killer opportunity.

Ive had g3, g4 and g6. All great phones that died within a year, all same problem, told myself to never buy their phones again. This phone and the attachment looks good BUT boring as hell. Notch on the second screen - really? That big opening in the back cover, for what? 2 (only) undsrwhelming back camera? I love the second screen and the possibilities of usage for it but they need to be bolder.

My biggest issue with LG is that they abandoned the UAE market altogether, they were losing sales but instead of making a good marketing push they just allowed themselves to loose ground. Cant even find anyone selling LG phones here anymore. They left, so the fans moved on.
