I’ve owned both of these phones. The audio quality on them is exceptional.
I own the V20. Almost everything about is great except the volume of the speaker phone. It is marginal at best compared to phones that have front firing speakers. I have a cheap phone with front firing speakers and it is much louder than the V20.
The V20’s camera is great. The speed is great; no stuttering on any apps.
Can I pluck my sim card from my POS phone and use it with either of these? Verizon and I broke up a few years ago.
LG stands for none of the aforementioned …it does however stand for Lucky Goldstar the Korean brand of now awesome electronics , phones , home appliances , and a whole host of other items that bring entertainment and excitement to you and your family,
Google, can I do this?
Can I move my cell phone service just by moving my SIM to a new phone? … These phones have to be either provided by your cell phone provider or they have to be unlocked phones. With unlocked phones, you can always switch your phone service between different phones as easily as popping out the SIM card and moving it.
apropos of nothing, but Gee, thanks dad!
Got a refurb V10 from woot. It lasted 6 months before boot looping and I didn’t try to fix it. If you take a chance on one, I’d recommend doing something like this the day you get it as a preventive measure. It shows how to use copper tape to disperse the heat from the processor.
I’ve had the V20 for a couple of years now and am mostly pleased with it. Pros include the incredible cameras with manual camera settings and audio quality. This is a much more “prosumer” type of phone versus Apple products (which is kind of ironic considering how expensive Apple stuff is). Cons include poor battery life (which gets pretty bad after about one and a half years) and a fairly slow OS/processor. I dropped my phone and cracked the screen a few months ago and had insurance, but it was a $150 deductible for a refurb, which is coincidentally what these have been going for on ebay.
Received mine today, and was a little surprised by what arrived.
I expected the phone to be ‘Scratch and Dent’ and it is that; the rubberized back cover has some gouges taken out and there is the normal wear around the top and bottom edges (specifically by the charging port) and light scratching on the glass covering the camera bump. Overall the ‘S&D’ nature of the phone is as expected, and is acceptable to me for the price.
What I didn’t expect was what ‘Refurbished’ meant. The phone was apparently sourced from one of the thousands of fly-by-night electronics ‘refurbishers’ that make their money by churning out as much volume as possible by reselling used phones, and not by actually performing any sort of refurbishing of the device short of a factory wipe. The interior of the battery compartment was dusty, which is somewhat expected, but the exterior of the phone itself is also plainly dirty. Some of what I initially believed to be scratches turned out to be grime that came off quite easily with an alcohol wipe. They also applied a thin rubberized protector to the screen for shipping, but because there was so much dust and dirt underneath it is essentially a field of air bubbles. Why put this on if you didn’t even bother to clean the phone?
To top it all off, the only other accessories included with the phone were a generic charger (the sort of charger I will never risk plugging in at my home because anyone can make a ‘UL Listed’ stamp these days and nothing about it exudes confidence) and charging cable, and a very helpful ‘CellSupport.us’ marketing card. I urge people to go to this site to see what sort of company this ‘refurbisher’ is. It is a stock Wordpress site that someone didn’t even bother to finish filling out, and the FAQ page even still contains the default text from the Wordpress template! This is the sort of vendor that I would expect when buying from a 2.5 star seller with no product reviews on The Mothership or another such nameless, faceless place on the internet, and I have no expectations of ever receiving any ‘warranty’ coverage whatsoever from John Doe selling cell phones out of his basement.
If I ever have any problems with the item hopefully woot! stands behind this product/seller they have endorsed by hawking this item on their site…
