    Can we please stop calling the V20 a "replacement" phone now? Most of the people that has it, now like it and are impressed.. So, can it be a standalone phone now? Haha or is it too soon?

    Replacement? What's it replacing? Many people loved the V10 too.

    Many Note 7 orphans are getting it as a replacement for that which we can no longer have. It's a nice phone in its own right however. I have it as a trial.

    To me, and many others, it'll always be my note 7 replacement.

    Oh. Hmm, depending on how it performs and how LG supports it, I'd consider it at least a lateral if not an upgrade. Definitely its own flagship.

    In my view, it is far superior to the Note 7 - unless, of course, you were looking for a stylus-driven phablet. With its removable battery, expandable storage, and premium metal design, it is what the Note 7 should have been.

    I replaced my V10 with the V20,.. No regrets! The phone is great and beautiful. Feels nice to the touch and not as heavy as the V10. A bit slippery, so be careful. Will be putting a clear case on soon, since I don't want to hide that Titan color.
    Did a quick unboxing:

    4 out of 5 users are former note 7 users. Most likely will be used for the time gap between notes or whatever Samsung calls the next iteration of that line.

    Are you posting from a Pixel? How do you like it? And it's not lateral or an upgrade IMHO.

    This phone has me over and past the constant exchanges and aggravation that was the N7. Won't see me calling it a replacement.

    I have the Pixel and the XL. I like the XL more - loving it so far.

    How are the low light photos compared to Note 7 (if you had one)? Otherwise how are they in general? I don't like the quality of low light on the v20 so I may try the Pixel XL.

    I'm gonna defer on photos because I'm a relatively terrible photographer. It's the best phone camera I've ever used, but I'd trust the experts way more than me.

    For me it will be an Upgrade! I love my V10 but I would love the faster processor.

    So what replacement?

    Imo the Note 7 was wack and overhyped. Glad I got rid of it. The camera was the only thing that impressed me.

    Well, and the screen. And the spen. And the wireless charging. And Samsung pay. And the animated gif maker. Ok, nobody used the animated gif maker.

    The 7 was great, but it's a memory now. The V20 has better second screen lockscreen notifications, an IR blaster, a cool screen capture app that is about as good as the spen screen capture feature, reversible capacitance buttons, removable battery, high end DACs, focus tracking, and focus peaking. And build quality is on par with the 7.

    So all in all its a great replacement phone. Lol just kidding OP.

    I see your point, but frankly most of LG sales for the V20 will probably be Note 7 ex-patriots. Local Best Buy and Verizon stores have even said this. Shame though LG did not make a better marketing effort, but that's how LG rolls.

    Agree in regards to signal reception.

    The more I use my Note 4 (waiting for V20) I notice how weak LTE and wifi reception were on the Note 7. With the Note 4, I get reception where the Note 7 failed and wifi stays cool while downloading. The Note 7 got rather warm. The Note 4 gets better battery life in weaker signal areas.

    The Note 7 was a great device, tempered by weak signal. Hoping not the same for the V20. I have documented the dBm signal in various areas where the Note 7 had issue and the Note 4 does not.

    You do not notice weak signal if in strong areas- ignorance is bliss.

    I am using my first post to say it is my note 7 replacement and I don't think it lives up to the N7. I really like the phone but something about it just feels...less than. I really believe the 7 was the best phone of the year BY FAR. I am having a hard time adjusting to it for some reason. my biggest annoyance so far is the finger print scanner. seems like it takes 2 tries each time. kinda hard to get my finger over it correctly without feeling around for it first. I will give it another week and decide if I wanna go to the pixel xl or the moto z.

    At the same price I would agree (AT&T must be trying to make money off Note 7 recallers), but at $672 and also the $200 BB card, IMO bridges total cost and then some (even without the BB card). The V20 though may surpass in some regards:

    1. Two lenses (just hope tap and shoot and low light are as N7 good for standard lens- or it would negate)
    2. Improved DACs
    3. Less fragile build (lens glass could be issue though)
    4. Replaceable battery (Samsung wished this now, me thinks)
    5. Better LTE and wifi reception (Note 7 has weak LTE and wifi)

    No water resistance though, but with a case and presuming the front is not a sponge, it should provide some protection from brief rain exposure or dampness.

    Number 5 BTW is a biggie IMO. That was the N7 Achilles heel and why some reported bad battery life sometimes and other times good battery life.
