    Default LG V20 Tips & Tricks!

    Hoping some of the V20 owners out there could share their best tips & tricks based on their experience with the V20. Am considering picking one up and would love to hear about all of the cool features, shortcuts and general tips you've uncovered while using the phone!

    If you uninstall certain included apps from LG, they are recoverable not from SETTINGS/ APPS, where you might expect to find them, but from
    Settings
    About Phone
    Update Center

    So I have learned the hard way.

    This depends on the version of phone you have. Verizon models do not have the update center.

    Aha. TMO here. I've been on TMO for so long, can't remember what a phone from another carrier looks like.
    Thanks for noting that. Certainly odd--guarantees nothing is ever simple.

    Looks like there is a trade-off in that I don't think the Verizon version lets you fully uninstall the LG apps. I only have the open to disable.

    This may be old hat to some but it's new to me since I have always used third party messenger apps. You can pinch to enlarge and shrink the size of text in messenger.

    Go to settings > general > about phone > software info > and then tap 'build number' 3 times to enable developer mode. Then go back to settings > general > developer mode > and then scroll down until you see "window animation scale, transition animation scale, and animator duration scale. Now turn them all off. Now watch how fast and fluid your OS will be! I do this for all my other android phones, a huge improvement in speed when navigating through the OS.

    Then go to settings > networks > mobile data > and then go through your apps and pick the ones you DON'T want to have background data permissions (such as Facebook) and then press disable background data. It'll help you save battery and data. Alternatively you can enable "data saver mode" as well from the notification bar dropdown shortcut.

    Last but not least, install the following free apps:

    ForceDoze
    Greenify

    Follow the instructions from the ForceDoze app and enable it. It will significantly improve battery life when the phone is idle.

    Install Greenify and tap the + symbol to select apps you want to hibernate. The developer suggests that you only hibernate apps YOU RARELY USE. Then occasionally, press the hibernate button and hibernate those apps. You'll see an improvement in battery life. On average I get around 5-6 hours SOT. Sometimes more, sometimes less (depending on usage and apps installed).
