    I received my new V40 phone this afternoon after pre-ordering it from AT&T on Friday. So far so good! I'm upgrading from the V30, and the major noticeable difference is the screen. I had issues with graining on my V30. This is much improved! Fingerprint sensor no longer turns on/off as well, takes some getting used to. I like the Google Assistant button on the left side. Haven't had a chance to test the camera features yet.

    How's the color of the phone? I'm not sure if I like the glossy black back of the phone with the blue tint.. a shame LG didn't release more colors in the US...

    It's not my favorite color ever, but I put a case on mine, so I honestly don't really care much about it.

    How much bigger, wider than the v30 does it feel?

    It honestly doesn't feel that much bigger at all. That's one of the things that concerned me. I went from Nexus 6 to the V30, never had a screen over 6 inches. But the size difference is in the height. The grip width-wise feels exactly as the V30

    Right. I do love the width of it, not sure if I want a phone that's the same height, or close to it to my Note8. Love the v30. Great size. Still not sure if I'll pre-order the v40 or not.

    The V40 height is about as tall as the V20.. it's a little bit more narrow than the V20 as well. The V30 is smaller overall in height.

    The G7 is smaller so that might be a better option if you want smaller (or the V30).

    Got mine today!! Yay!!
    I've been waiting months and I'm not disappointed.I'm a big LG fan and this bad boy is killer.
    Gonna take some time getting used to the power button on the side :-P
    I'm glad I ordered a case from China 3 weeks ago cause cases are few and far between right now but it won't be long before some others come out soon hopefully.

    Those that have received your phones, please do report on your battery life; specifically the standby time, in terms of how much battery is lost per hour, as well as overnight. Also, if you're using the phone on T-Mobile, please report on signal reception. I'm hoping the phone is able to achieve full bars this time around? Thanks in advance.

    However, remember that Android OS takes several days or weeks until it settles in and recognize your habits, thus optimizing battery life. Battery life should last all day plus a little more.

    I've never seen proof that the OS needs to "settle"

    Me either, but Li-ion batteries do have a short break in period, and it's not unusual to see a slight capacity increase after a few cycles.

    Yeah personally after major update such as Oreo (my last update) I'll have a lot of wonky behavior. For instance, my V30 had bad Bluetooth connection, faster battery drain and a lot of different apps were force stopping.

    Usually only lasts 2-3 days, week at most or a factory reset cures most concerns.

    This last update it seemed a lot of V30 owners had extended Bluetooth issues but mine is working good again.

    I wouldn't say out happens to every phone by any means but I have definitely been victim in the past.

    There is no way to know this. Every use case is different. You've got to stop. I pray that LG is paying you.

    Can't really comment on bat life yet. Only have it 24hrs. But I can say overnight went from 95% to 87% ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    I do have t mobile and just had G6 seems like same reception.

    Actually there is some precedent for the V40 using the 3300mAh paired with the Snapdragon 845 chip. The V35 is using the same combination (although I believe it has 8.0 and not 8.1). There are numerous reports that the battery life is extremely good on the V35, thus I would think it should be similar with the V40 and it's slightly larger screen.

    I wanted the V30 last year, but had to get my kid a phone two months before it came out and so I handed my old one down and I got a deal on a G6 which was a solid phone but I just didn't love it. Earlier this year I sold that and went to a Pixel 2. Its been a very love hate relationship. I love the camera and its fast and I get updates every month but I have to factory reset almost monthly because something breaks during an update. Quite honestly, its just kind of boring. I'm not in love with what I'm seeing for the Pixel 3 is more of the same (and forced gesture navigation) and I just don't care for Samsung's UI nor their curved screens.

    So here I am, full circle and really really thinking about getting a V40 as I'm loving just about everything I'm reading except the price. I'm not big on notches but this one just looks alright and doesn't bother me. I may pick one up soon.

    Just an FYI, if you don't like the notch, the V40 has a setting that hides it.
