Dual screen case price....

Anonymous, 16 Feb 2020so happy with mine 441K on tutu @you live with your set-up.Price sounds super; I cant find a tutu to buy from , what is this tutu?

Anonymous, 23 Dec 2019Ok so one major omission. Is the 5g low band...mid or mm??... moreSo they showed three major bands on the 5g modem: n41(2.6Ghz-Sprint), n260(39Ghz- AT&T), and n261(28Ghz-Verizon), as well as n78(3.5Ghz), which is only used in Europe, China, and maybe India.

My main question is, has anyone with this phone in America been able to activate it on a 5g network? And I mean THIS phone. The Lm-v500n dual screen model. Not the POS Lm-v450, or the EM variant, which can't accept a dual screen attachment. I'll be happy with dual screen 4g, but if I can activate 5g, that's a game changer, and makes the v60 look really bad, other than some battery life and Wacom support.

Why on earth are selfie cameras still fixed focus. Two of them, yet no focus.

The Hardware itself is good on papers, but suggest it is LOUSY and really SLUGGISH in comparison to what Samsung is offering.

YOU WILL BE VERY DISSAPOINTED WITH YOUR CHOICE AFTER USING FOR 3-4 DAYS.

REAL DUMB STUFF.

The one thing that makes these LG phones truly unique is their Quad DAC, and you guys don't even bother to test it, let alone MENTION it!?
This made me think that it didn't have quad DAC, because surely GSM arena wouldn't make the mistake of not even mentioning it if it was there? Apparently they could.
That's just fucking sloppy!
By the way, since this line of phones has the attention of a lot of audio enthusiasts it wouldn't hurt to at least mention the "boombox"-feature as well. Me for one would love to see what effect that feature has on the speaker sound.

Owned a few LGs over the years, stopped at V30. Unfortunately hardware doesn’t mean much if your software is years + behind. This phone looks cool hardware looks neat but if you are waiting months and months for OS update what’s the point?

a3des, 19 Dec 2019No more QUAD-DAC in this phone?Yes, quad DAC exists and hope to stay on future devices as well. But GSMArena guys are so lazy and neglecting that they missed it completely from the review. They didn't even mention about the audio performance with quad DAC switched on. Please update it.

Ugly, slow updates, outdated software. Sorry LG but the good audio quality won't save it, not without a headphone jack.

Anonymous, 25 Dec 2019Buy LG and wait for years for update? No - THANKS!Who cares about non security updates... they generally make battery life worse, and in some cases, MUCH worse.

Buy LG and wait for years for update? No - THANKS!

A really decent flagship phone overshadowed by competitions and dismissed as being gimmicky because of its dual screen accessary. With a headphone jack and the dedicated ES9281P Quad DAC, it's easily the best phone that can be recommended to casual audiophiles. The rest of the package looks solid as well, well done LG.

  • LOL !!!!`

-> No offense but its true

Ok so one major omission. Is the 5g low band...mid or mm?????? Makes a big difference as I don't see getting a new phone till all 5g bands are built in.

what do you need ... to draw you to be silly ... cumbersome and unnecessary to have two big screens ... and move meaning .... not stand out at night .... pointless and stupid to a company that used to be name now loses
