I picked up the new model Samsung W20 5G in China yesterday..

So far very impressed.

Small and practical for the pocket, beautiful smooth engineering, yet opens to a very solid mini iPad style unit.

The front screen is ideal for checking messages and emails at a glance and if necessary to reply ...you can just open to the 7x 7 screen and get a practical sized keyboard that fits my big fingers...

I have been a Samsung Galaxy Note fan since converting from iPhone to a Galaxy 3 many years ago...and used the pen for typing before..but now, changing from a Note 10 to the W20 5G the pan is not needed now with the big keyboard.

The camera and other functions are excellent so far as well.

Congratulations Samsung..

As my son who converted me to the Galaxy 3 said back then.. "Dad, peoplebuy an iPhone for prestiege.. if you want a great camera and a great phone change to Samsung"

I did back then and still never had any refrets

nino77ns, 20 Dec 2019i haven't seen anything worse than lg this is such a funny ... moreThat was a lot of babbling for a comment that didn't explain why this is a bad phone. In the US, you could find this for like $450. For those specs, this phone is worth it.

One thing i like about this phone and anyone talk about it is the good old 3d rolodex multitasking!!!I hate all the pie's horizontal cards multitasking

i haven't seen anything worse than lg this is such a funny move, lg needs to be aware that it has not made anything better since the lg g4, which most people confirm ,,, they are all farther from something more serious, i dont know if their designers are following the trends ?? And what do new phones look like ,,, I find this ridiculous I wouldn't even pay 100s for something like this, dual ,,,,,funny ;))))))

ipolit.matveich, 18 Dec 2019Very strange proposal. Maybe good for gaming, but I really ... moreI definitely can see real life applications with that accessory.

- Emulate traditional book reading. Two pages at one time? Why not.
- Simultaneous usage of two different app side-by-side without any resizing whatsoever. And since this is still a smartphone shape, the app will act like a legit smartphone. If this is a Samsung Galaxy Fold, the app has to be optimized for large screen which is a faff to redevelop it.
- Nintendo DS and 3DS emulation. In fact, it's mobile gaming in general as you can use one of the screens as the gamepad.
- Mini laptop? Why not, Office apps on one screen, full screen keyboard on one another.

You definitely wouldn't understand the whole point of dual screen smartphone until you have personally tried it out. I was lucky enough to feel the dual screen experience with the ZTE Axon M, and it was definitely worth it! I know the screen is not symmetrical or identical to one another, but would I buy this over the Samsung Galaxy Fold? Absolutely YES!

So this phone is for how much for USD? I dont see anything special about this phone other than.. acutally nothing. lol LG phones still crappy. Please stick to creating TV and ACs..

I think its retarded. Why 2 screens ..?? To watch 2 different movies at the same time..?? Feel the need for 2 screens like you have at work now..??

  • Nickname GSM

So at WHAT point do smartphones become more like mini TV's rather than a PHONE as they were intended ..??
Oh thats right, Millennials don't have TV's, they watch TV on their phone... Great way to get hand cancer ...

Anonymous, 19 Dec 2019Because the default pics are as good as night mode. Why do... moreWe use night mode to see more things in the photos for dimmed environments. I don't see what so artificial about that? Furthermore, you still have the choice of using regular mode if you prefer more realistic photos. That's why the Night mode is there for a reason. However, LG is not leveraging that.

Really hope LG can improve on their software updates and advertising strategy. Other than that, this phone is a great deal.

It is definitely an underestimated phone. LG should advertise more for this phone I think, it deserves to reach consumers who mostly only think only 2 brands exist.

It has all possible features, it does everything well or very well, it has a dual screen unique option, it's cheaper than its competitors and it gets a 4.2?!? Confusing

  • a3des

No more QUAD-DAC in this phone?

Why do you want more unnecessary brightness and make the pictures look artificial?

  • jhony

it's amazing to read new tech and their features like this, thanks a lot for this nevertheless in my young days the only good feature was auto call recorder but now new things, tech, and features change our lives thanks again for this

LG should update android OS 10 in v30+ thinq dual sim (h930ds). thankyou.

The Night View is practically useless. When we use Night View / Night Mode, we want to see much brighter photos. What's the point of using the Night View when the photos are just as dark as the regular mode?!

  • Duke1

Sounds a fantastic device.
I like that they have kept the headphone jack, SD Csrd and FM Radio as well.

I think Ill be replacing my iPad mini with this and use the second screen when at home.

Nice one.
