        Everything is much better and faster with the Note, but I do miss my IR blaster, removable battery and second screen…

        • +2 votes

          No IR blaster on the v30, unless I have gone a whole uear not realising it. Come to think of it has none of those features

        •  

          Do you miss the second screen software? Having the longer AMOLED screen on the note 9 seems technically better than the lcd screen and partial OLED strip on the v20

          •  

            @mrdavedave: I prefered the older circle-case screen but find the V20 handy for minor things such as music control when walking and turning the torch on. Small things, but pleasing.

      replaced my v20 with nokia 7 plus …..LG were 9 mths late from their commitment date for oreo ….will never buy LG again unless it’s android one ….
      also one security patch in 10 mths for my LG , nokia i got one in december and jan 2019 patches arrived today.

      loved the LG hardware but software support let it down.

      at this price the v30 is a great phone , maybe LG will better support the v30, but it is still better value than chinadroids in this price range.

        I cannot agree more on the "never again LG unless Android One."

        I had the G5 and it was running well until it ran into hardware issues after warranty ended. Apparently the Oreo update was meant to arrive mid last year. I loaded it up yesterday and checked for updates… Says it's all good. Ok, LG.

          I agree as well, I have the LG v20 that had bluetooth issues where it would stutter every minute or so and ruin the music listening experience in my car. It wasn't fixed until they released the update earlier this year, and now i don't want to update my phone again in case the next update breaks it again. I am also hesistant to upgrade since it's getting harder and harder to find new phones with replaceable batteries. I've still got a couple more batteries so I'll hold on until something brilliant comes out.

          Have you ever faced this error "moisture detected in USB port"?
          I am unable to charge anymore and I swear I never exposed my phone to damp environment…

          "AndroidOne" (aka Project Silver) has been cancelled.

          It started with the Xiaomi Mi A1, it doesn't get updates directly from Google, and isn't guaranteed 3-year updates (not talking about small security patches). If you don't believe me, look it up.

          The same goes for AndroidWear (aka WearOS) and AndroidTV. Alongside these, AndroidOne devices get updates from the OEM (and maybe carrier?), depending on the generosity/dedication of the OEM for previous consumers. So for those waiting for the LG G7-One, stop waiting. Sure, the OS will probably get a lot leaner, with more and longer software updates… but there is No Assurance. And remember when many/all OEM's said they would do software support/updates but had no Promise/Obligation to do it? Yeah, LG was in the thick of it.

          So if you want frequent and long-term software support:
          - get an iPhone for 3 years
          - get a Google phone (Pixel) for 2 years
          - get an Android flagship (Galaxy S) for 9 months
          - or get a phone that is popular and has a budding community (eg OnePlus) for 2-5 years

            @Kangal: Google phone is good for 4 years of updates in very much all of their models to date.
            Samsung and other mainstream manufacturers are good for two major releases of Android after initial release - roughly about 2 years, NOT 9 months
            Budding community 2-5 years, except none of it has been through any complex or rigorous testing meaning you are an alpha tester until the next version comes out that fixes things but breaks other things even more.

            @Kangal: Android One has not been cancelled. Android One was never 3 years of OS updates, it was 2 years of OS updates and 3 years of security updates. Xiaomi promises "2 years minimum of OS upgrades" for the Mi A1 and true to that they released Android Pie in December, well ahead of most brands including Samsung. Google promises, "Monthly security updates to be supported for at least 3 years after initial phone release" for Android One. Updates were never direct from Google.

              @dogbestdog: Yes it has.

              The name lives on, but the Platform is officially dead. Updates for any AndroidOne device now comes from the OEM, just like all the other SkinnedOS devices. I'll reiterate; Google does NOT push out updates to AndroidOne devices.

              I was patiently waiting for the LG G7-ONE, but not anymore. I am no longer trusting in any of these companies unless they make an official promise and have a proven track record.

              I will instead look for devices with a "budding community", because they seem to do a much better job of providing a Lean/Stock OS and keep it upto date. Which sucks when bootloaders cannot be unlocked.

        Software update to my v20 turned in into a slug. I couldn't stand it. Such a pity.

          Mine too… I tried to delay the inevitable replacement for a long time, but waiting 15 seconds for applications to load was too much to bear

        How do you compare V20 and Nokia 7+? Performance, camera and battery life.
        We had a Nokia 7+, camera is pretty good but had a faulty charging port, now in repair.

        I am sorry, that must have been distressing for you. How often were you hacked without more security updates? Did it happen daily, every other day, or perhaps weekly?

        Not getting the latest Android at the time, must have almost pushed you to insanity. What did you find were the most important apps you were unable to run because your Android operating system was so old?

      •  

        What apps were you unable to run without Oreo? What were the biggest features of Oreo that you found made your existing OS bad?

        Note: I am upgrading my phone from Android 4.4 so am looking at what new things I will be able to do.

    Fantastic price for a phone that is still very capable and relevant (nothing else that I can think of can beat the value and performance at this price range).

    Anyone considering buying from Harvey $1195 and their 28 degrees card, then doing a price claim with both Harvey and 28 degrees?

      I could be mistaken, but I don’t think competitor pricing is covered by Shopper Protection, only the retailer you purchase from.

        Since November last year, 28C's policy has been updated to accept any Australian retailer pricing. So that's another way if you can't get it from JBHiFi.

      • +3 votes

        They changed to cover every retailer in Australia.

        If you buy an item in Australia with your 28 Degrees Platinum Mastercard and within 12 months the item is available at a lower price in the same retailer or any other Australian retailer, we’ll pay the difference between the purchase price and the lower price to your account, up to $1,000 per item.

          How can they possibly offer that, considering how fast Android devices drop in price over the course of a year? Truly amazing.

          Take the Note 9, $1799 at launch five months ago, already at $1299.

            @Mitch889: well you have to add it to your account and it costs 1% of your closing balance each month. I assume you could add remove it as needed but not sure?
            Also as it includes an account payout on death its not available if youre over 64!

          Omg I never knew, this is amazing.

          Have always thought it was same store same retailer.
          So we have eb, jb, target, big w, Costco, Harvey, and all this to choose from?

          Isn't this kinda broken?
          Like I can buy a game from eb for $100 then be like big w and target are selling it for $30 half a year later…

    •  

      but why you want to use a price claim? are they giving you more money than the difference?
