    I just pick up an LG Velvet. I broke my Pixel 3A XL and went to verizon. I needed a replacement immediately since I use it for work. There were no iphones or pixels in stock. There was 1 LG, the velvet I got and a few samsungs. The phone is fine but the text autofill and correction is horrible compared to a pixel.

    I have several phones from iphone to s10 samsung but I still prefer my LG G6 because of the quad DAC audio though wired headphones has incredible sound quality.. Also it's never glitched unlike the s10 or the iphone x that have crashed several times...

    The Velvet looks like a Samsung Galaxy S6/S7 Edge, which is not a bad thing because they are some of the best looking smartphones ever made. Also the velvet has a headphone jack!

    The SD765G is the 5G Variant in México LG would sell a 4G only version which would use the SD845 and 6GB of ram, and would cost the equivalent of 900usd then doesn't sound as good anymore, just sound like and overpriced old hardware "new" phone

    I used mid/top mid tier Android phones for nearly 10 years. Always had headphone jack. Then I switched to an iPhone with no headphone jack. Don't really miss it at all and that was very surprising to me. Most of these people out here complaining about no headphone jack have never used one without it. Give it a shot it's not that bad.

    sadly this is the worst flagship of LG cuz it doesnt carry the famous quad dac, I love LG phones and looking for a new LG rn but this is off my radar completely cuz there isnt a quad dac, its the only feature that diferentiates LG from everyone else, but they seem to just want to cheap out

    I'd pay LG 350€ maximum for that phone , in a condition I will get Android 10 out of the box and at least another 2 years of sec. updates and bug fixes ( including at least one release of Android 11 or unlocked bootloader after sw support period )....asking 650€ for a "middle tier" phone with absolute garbage of a software support is a joke....I can get Xiaomi Note pro 9 for less with so much better specs.

    It's true, a lot of users don't need that high performance that the Snapdragon 865 has. A 765G would do perfectly fine, plus be more power efficient, so it would be perfect for the average user. People buying phones with Snapdragon 865's (and even the older chips from a couple generations back) just to use it for social media and media consumption is a waste. However something like the Xiaomi Mi 10 puts this phone to shame. Snapdragon 865, 8GB of ram, 128 of fast UFS 3.0 storage, an amoled display with a punch hole camera, a 108 MP camera sensor, wireless charging, water resistance, and a 4700 mah battery. It has no draw backs and it's less than 600 bucks, it can even compete with stuff like the Note 20 Ultra, which is over double the price of this phone.

    Do you need the latest and greatest? No. But what if LG updates your G7 to Android 10 and is now slower, full of bugs and a pain to use? What do you do when the manufacturer pulls the brakes your still powerful phone, making it slow and sluggish? Well, you never buy LG again and go elsewhere!

  84. XDLugia

    XDLugia3 months ago

    Been using the LG V30 for a few years and I don't regret it for a second. It's a great phone. I had my last phone for 6,5 years and I expect somewhat the same out of this. I am happy that I went that phone as well, because it didn't have a notch, but rather a small bezel. I'd take a 3mm bezel over a 5mm notch any day.
