    Hey people.
    Kinda bored of my V20. What's making you happy on your V20?
    Any cool themes or apps you can suggest?
    Thanks!

    I kinda am sometimes but just enjoying the features my next phone won't have like the IR blaster which I use a lot actually. I just bought a Dbrand skin to spice things up as well.

    I'm using this theme and loving it.

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....theme.classic

    I've also been running the Next 3D launcher and this theme for it.

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....xobluetwister

    The two themes compliment each other well, and blue is my favorite color. Of course the price of the launcher itself is a bit of a sticker shock.

    Not bored with mine...Only had it 2 weeks. Lol...Got a brand new one for $150 off eBay. Using Evie Launcher and this thing flies. So much faster than the Essential Phone I sold. Already swapped batteries a few times. Such a convenience that none of the newer phones have.

    Also I think we get a little touch up in the form of the Oreo update it will bring a little freshness to the phone as well. I really want the S9+ right now but I'm trying to hold out for as long as possible. At least allow everyone to show their cards before I upgrade.

    Since you're big into the camera aspects, you may want to check out this thread.

    Not sure if the OP just has a bug or if all S9's are designed to limit RAW capabilities and lens switching.

    Ok cool.
    Edit: I just saw the post and it seems that Samsung only uses the main sensor in pro mode. Not a big issue for me but I have noticed that from trying to learn as much about the pro mode in stores before buying.

    I have both phones and the essential is way faster. Especially with Oreo.

    Both great phones but I've been very happy with the essential phone as my daily driver. The battery is especially good and the camera takes better pics than the v20 to my eye.

    The V20 has a lot of great features though and I don't plan on getting rid of it anytime soon. It's especially nice as a home theater remote.

    My essential phone was pretty fast too but it was not as consistent as the V20. It would hesitate way too often when loading websites. I couldn't put my hand on it but it was frustrating. A website like ESPN would load instantly one time and then take 20 seconds the next time. It was the same on 4G and WiFi. Plus it randomly would restart every so often. Tried multiple resets but eventually gave up. The Oreo Beta did not make a difference either so I sold it. Possible I had a dud but wasn't going to get another one so I ended up with a V20. So far so good...

    I purchased a Note8 to shake things up. Between the V20 and the Note I have all sorts of fun taking pictures and videos. The two compliment each other real well.

    Also you can try some accessories to extend the fun of your phone. I just ordered this wireless controller to play PlayStation games with via ePSXe. You can actually get a lot of quality gaming on the go with this setup. I may get a Chromecast to see if I can get an actual console type experience using it.

    Themes:
    Card Ui
    Electric Ui
    Pixel Ui
    Android O
    Grace UX
    Grace UX Dark
    Origami (from LG SmartWolrld)
    Midnight (from LG SmartWorld)
    Flyme
    Dark Material
    Pixel Skynight
    LGUX 6+

    Clock Widget:
    XWidget (with S8 like clock widget)

    Other apps:
    Pixel NavBar
    Rounded Corner

    Wallpapers:
    Galaxy Note 8 Wallpapers

    Also, it's good to switch between two phones to reduce the likelihood of getting bored of the phone. I have a ZTE Zmax Pro with a true huge 6' 1080p screen, a great secondary phone for under $100. Also, switching the theme, wallpaper, and case helps.. I cycle through 3 different cases to give it a fresh look once a week. Would you wear the same shirt everyday? Probably not, that's why it's good to have options. Also, buy a Dbrand or SlickWraps skin to give it a new look, easy to install as well (you can still use a case over it after it fully adheres, I recommend a clear case so you can see the design).

    If you're bored it means phone is doing everything right! Kind of a good thing really but I know what you mean. I'm going to keep my V20 on VZW and pick up something else on Xfinity Mobile. Torn between an S9+ or a red iPhone 8+. I wish I knew exactly when Note 9 is coming out.

    I'm waiting on the V40, possibly the G7 ThinQ. But I'm definitely keeping the V20...

    I just got a used but mint condition red HTC 10. So switching between that keeps away the boredom. I should also mention I have a V10 and my trusty old One M8 that is still in great condition.

    Here's some SlickWraps designs. My SlickWraps skin is still on my phone.. I use a case over it. When you install it, you need to flatten all the corners as much as you can to prevent lifting of the skin. Not only does it protect the phone, it also makes it feel nice to touch especially with the matte finish.

    New Android P Theme for V30, G6, V20 ($1.50 on Google Play Store). Be glad LG offers themes like Samsung.. some phones don't have that option and you'll get bored faster.

    Download the Google Pixel 2 camera app apk.. brings life back to the old LG camera, looks very good actually. Definitely 2018 quality thanks to the great post processing and HDR algorithm. Still having a blast with the camera now, and still love the wide angle camera. Don't forget how awesome the 3 multidirectional microphone is on the V20.

    Also download the Note 8 wallpapers, they look really cool!

    I'm going to wait and see if LG makes a V40. If not, I might go with the Note 10 when that comes out someday.
