    Quick update on the V20.

    It arrived and I set it up.

    I don't have a case yet, but one will arrive next week. I also ordered a spare battery. Both of these items are coming from Amazon.

    The V20 is a big phone, but that's a good thing to me, since I like big phones. It is surprisingly thin, considering that it has a removable battery. It doesn't feel slippery and had a decent grip to it. It doesn't feel heavy and is well balanced in my hand.

    I already switched to Nova Launcher Prime, Gboard, Lines icons, Google Messages, and Aqua Mail rather than the default LG apps.

    Switching was easy. Everything was backed up from my Moto X Pure Edition except for the Moto apps which I didn't really use anyway.

    The display looks great and is easy to read outdoors in the sun and indoors in the dark using the default brightness settings.

    The second screen is cool. I like that LG feature.

    Call quality is great.

    Connectivity to WiFi and Bluetooth is great. I had no issues connecting the phone to the head unit in my 2017 Honda Civic coupe.

    I streamed Google Play music in the car.

    Music and camera reviews will be forthcoming, once I've used those features.

    I'll also update on battery life once I'm at what will be normal use.
    Sounds great Laura, keep 'em coming.

    So I had a day trip with some friends on Saturday and the friend that drove us there had this nice unit in his car. I know that wasn't there a couple of months ago. Anyway, his unit has me looking at them. At this point, the only thing that would make me want to sell this car (which has low mileage considering that it is 13 years old) and get rid of this one is the unit. My car is one of those old ones that don't have an AUX port or Bluetooth.

    I still think about that model I possibly missed out on that had an AUX unit. Rue linked a nice one to me the other time but I think I want a unit with both options. I think Laura mentioned something about Best Buy installing her unit a while back, which has me looking at Best Buy. I should do it, I think. My friend's unit has me imagining all of the possibilities I could experience in my car. Decisions decisions...

    Yes, I had Best Buy install a unit on my old car that had Bluetooth.

    The unit on my new car has Bluetooth and USB built in. I'm already using it with my new V20.

    Thanks! I remembered that you mentioned something along those lines. The USB option might be better for me to have as well, since I'm such a phone switcher. My friend's unit had a USB connection too. I'll look into it, I'm liking some of the Pioneer options so far.

    Ooh I'm sure that it's a great experience with the V20, considering that phone and the unit with both of those options. That sounds great.

    My great grandmother (mother's side) lived to 96. If she didn't have the medical issues she did she could've easily hit 100 or more. She was simply stubborn. She's also my direct link to the UK.

    My grandparents (mother's side) didn't fare as well unfortunately. Both in their early 70s. 18 months apart.

    I only know my mother's side of the family.

    V20 update: AT&T visual voicemail showed as incompatible from Play Store. I installed the apk from apk mirror, and it works fine. This might be useful for someone who wants to use visual voicemail on an unlocked phone.

    My dad reached his 91st before passing on. My grandparents all reached their 70s/80s. I guess the people born of their generations lived through cleaner environment.

    My mum's tough old soul. About 12 years ago she had a bad fall, broke her hip bones. Had a couple of minor heart attack during her post-surgery recovery. She was in pretty bad shape but did manage to recover through it all. Now she really, physically strong and spritely for her age, with her mental faculties intact. It's a blessing.
