    I just picksup my v20 2 days ago. I am half afraid now and wondering if I should return it for a different phone?

    Heck I'm all out of ideas? S7e is having issues, AT&T does not sell pixel....what's left iphone?

    Anybody else here thinking of returning the v20 for something else? If so what? I'm am honestly paranoid what will happen down the road when it's too late to return it!

    Ditto. Besides, the glass might sense the tension and shatter.

    I have never been a fan of LG products, but was going to try the V20 because of the audio capabilities. I am with AT&T and at $830, I do not think I want to try it, with the lens issues. There are starting to be too many negatives with this phone, for me.

    i left the S7 Edge for my V20. I like it, but I'm not all blown away by it. Love the huge screen. And I know this camera glass issue is probably not a huge widespread issue. However it doesn't stop my brain from thinking that I need to baby it.

    I am thinking if I dont fall head over heels in love, I will try the Moto Z Force, if that doesn't blow me away, go back to my S7 Edge

    From my history:

    Droid Razr, battery problem

    M8, weak USB ports

    G4, bootloop issues

    N7, battery problems

    V20, (possibly) weak camera glass

    Pick your poison folks, phones just suck for durability.

    Guess I was lucky: NGage, Tmo Dash, G1, Droid, Incredible, Droid 3, Razr, S4, Note 4, MXPE: Zero problems until Note 7 and even then no personal problem with either I had (besides weak LTE signal, great device).

    Back to Note 4 and still rocks (well, after MM update and new battery). V20 still in preorder / in progress BB lah lah land.

    I'm sure screen repair shops will begin to repair this as well. I'm not too worried.

    Long exposure using the flashlight and lay the camera down on a kitchen granite counter top. I bet high chance the physics of it will make the glass crack.

    Before of the flashlight. I had to take my flashlight off quick tools secondary screen. I found my flashlight on twice now with routine work activity as phone goes in and out of my pocket. Not sure how my fumbling fingers are activating the camera or if it's happening in my pocket, regardless it's not worth having it quickly avail if I am going to get a hot lense from it.

    Don't be paranoid. Get a good case. Bad things don't always happen!

    Actually it is. I took it to a repair place here and he said the same thing but until they get some in he would not recommend taking it out. It still will take pictures and the wide angle seems better than the regular but if I remove the glass he said dirt may get down in there and cause problems with all working parts in the camera area.
    I also spoke with a LG Rep and even though they aren't willing to replace the phone ( which is ok with me) they are willing to work with me and repair it so now I am just waiting on a approval from corporate. I sent him pictures of mine and a few others that are experiencing the same issue so they are aware of the problem.

    There is a video on Youtube where the guy did a scratch test on the camera lens and a few seconds after the test, the camera lens shattered.

    Yes I saw that earlier. Makes you believe the glass is under excessive pressure
