    LG G3 (6.0) vs LG v20 (7.0)

    LG G3 with M 6.0 ($150) vs LG V20 with N 7.0 ($350)
    I've had/been using the LG V20 for a couple of months now and thought I'd give my unsolicited, unsubstantiated, only my feelings comparison.
    The LG G3 is still a great phone and does everything I needed a phone to do. I really don't use my phone as a phone. I use it for email, messages, information, research and everything else I usually ask my Windows desktop to do.
    The V20 is Big and Heavy: 1/4" taller and 1 oz heavier. Too tall to fit in most of my cargo pants zipper pockets. The Xtra 1oz in wgt causes me to have to wear a belt to keep my britches from slipping down. So big that I took off the VRS case to get rid of some of the bulk. Waiting for a "slim' case from China to see if it really is slim.
    That's the Bad.
    Here's the Good: Battery life is greatly improved (my feeling ) I think this is due to 7.0's ability to sense when the phone is not being used. M cuts down battery use when the phone is sitting idle. N cuts battery use even while in your pocket.
    Snap 820 + the combo of 4 GB Ram makes the phone blazingly fast on the Web. No just watching the cursor rotate.
    Auto brightness seems much better. The light sensor on the V20 seems better.
    The finger print sensor is excellent. I have all my banking info + all sensitive personal info available on the phone. It was really a pain entering a code every time I booted up. The print sensor has been flawless.
    I probably am not nor will ever use many of the V20's touted features. The dual screen thing is a gimmick. I really haven't figured out how to use it, though.
    The tiny notification window is helpful.
    What is really a benefit is the switch to USB 2.0. This alone is worth the Xtra $200
    Android "N": Took awhile - still learning, struggling. In "M" when U put app icons in a folder they still were visible when U swiped thru the screens. In "N" when U put an icon in a folder it disappears from the icon list and only is available in the folder. I have 11 different folders with icons embedded. Now I have to often get into each folder if I forget where I put the app. No way I have found to search apps.
    Would I do it again? Of course! Anyone who spends this much money would have to tout as "the best". Seriously - YES. It's part of my personality that I want to keep up with technology - even though it costs a bit.

    When you put icons into a folder with Nova Launcher, you can specify if the icon should still be in the main list or not. Maybe you can do the same with your V20 launcher? I think you mean USB-C. Glad you like your new toy. I have yet to try N. Maybe it will come to my LG G4 or Huawei phone.

    Just curious...Why is USB-C so important? What sort of USB-C devices are you hooking to the phone? I understand the higher thru put for data transfer and charging but haven't found any great need for my phone to support it.

    I know what you meant to say, but the definition of unidirectional is "one way", which is the port of most cell phones, the plug can only goes in one way, flip it over and won't go in. The USB-C plug is bidirectional.

    Eventually we'll all have phones with it. I think I can wait . Got too much invested in my micro USB cables

    You can't use your super fast V20 to look that up?

    No Apple likes to use their own non-standard ways to make more money.

    Bought a 3 pack of USB-C to Micro USB adapters. Kinda of a pain but it is what it is

    If you use the adapter with your microUSB cable, does that charge phone as fast as the cable which came with the V20?

    I can't tell but the phone does charge quickly.
