    This is the one I got and that was my first night with it. It works well, but I'm still getting use to handling it. There's tons of videos on YouTube on how to use them.

    The photo above was shot with my DSLR with rear curtain flash from a speed light. This is the best my current Razer Phone can do, due to the firmware maxed 1/3" shutter. I tweaked it some with Adobe Photoshop Express too.Attachment 318636
    Yeah sadly LG dropped rear curtain flash from the manual mode.

    What?!?!

    Dang, I thought I saw it in one of the preview videos. Not a huge loss, I guess. The one on the V20 never was that great. I love the concept, but I've learned you really need a true flash to make it work. The LED on the phone was just too low powered and slow.

    Yeah just little things they stripped away to make their phones more mainstream while still offering one if not the best manual mode for photos and video (well I think Sony with their camera division working with mobile has them beat) on a mobile phone. Huawei is pretty close too.

    I've heard Sony is good in the phone market, but none of theirs are offered through Verizon, so never messed with one myself.

    Yeah the last Sony phone I remember being supported by a US carrier was the Xperia Z3 which was my first Android phone. The T-Mobile reps actually took my picture with the phone as apparently I was the first person to purchase one. It was a nice phone at the time and the battery life was excellent. I think Verizon got a different iteration of the Z3 and then that was it.

    The V60 may not have the best camera but it is still really good and this is only in auto. With a few manual changes you can get even better with it along with the benefit of all the extra features the V60 has. And finally a nice front facing camera.

    I was just looking into Verizon's info more. I thought the dual screen was bundled with the phone, but it's not. You have register for it, then wait 3-4 weeks for it to arrive. I was hoping not to have to buy a case for the phone (when I get around to ordering, of course) since the dual screen case looks to protect well, but I guess I'd need at least a cheap one.
    I purchased this case and it is pretty solid, it will do nicely until my dual screen arrives. A lot better than I expected...

    It also appeared that the stabilization might not have been turned on with the V60. I've seen other shots with it that the stabilization did significantly better than it did in this video. But when you compare all other features and the price, I don't see how you can go wrong with the V60. For me, If I'm photographing something that I care about all of those issues I'm going to use my mirrorless camera anyway. But it was a good comparison.

    I did get a chance to get a little tonight for some quick shots using auto and manual mode and a few night view shots. Tested a few shots at 5x zoom as well and I must say the results came out very nice. In no particular order. Here we go.

    I went ahead and ordered one from OtterBox. The symmetry series. Arriving 4 days after my phone though. 🤨

    There's just not much out there for the V60 right now

    Yes, you have a good memory! And I have really enjoyed it. But after it updated to Android 10 the camera app freezes the phone and causes it to reboot. HMD is aware that has happened to some phones but have done nothing to r=try to correct it. They also never updated the camera app which is seriously lacking. I actually think that they've tried to produce too many phone models and are unable to keep up with them all. But it will still be a good backup phone (that can't take pics). Time to move on. I placed my order.

    Oh wow that sucks. The Android 10 broke my text messages notification sounds on the OnePlus 7 Pro regardless of which messaging app I tried. So it's nice having my notifications again.

    I've almost come to the point that when I'm ready for a new OS I will just replace the phone. I've not had good experiences with updating phones.

    It happens though. I've had positive experiences with every update except the Android 10 one which was fine outside of the silent text messages issue.

    I keep hoping they'll come up with a fix for my Nokia, though I don't believe it will happen. I was able to get some really nice pics with it during the time I've had it.

    Oh yeah I believe you. I really wanted that phone as well but I didn't trust them as far as updates went so I held off on it. I still think it takes some of the best photos around.

    Wow, those are truly beautiful. I love the clock tower one with the darkened clouds - is that the Night Mode shot? Looks like this phone takes stellar pictures!

    Here's an interesting comparison between the V60's digital zoom, and the V50's dedicated telephoto lens. Color me impressed.

    Thanks Morty. The one with the clock tower was actually a standard photo testing out the zoom. I think I was at 5x zoom in that one. I can't wait to test the cameras further when things get better.

    Yep I saw that yesterday too. Happy I went with it and LG made the right compromise there.
