LG V20 to be available in Canada

For any Canadian with ears, 2015 and 2016 were very disapointing years. The HTC 10 limited to Bell, the LG V10 or the HiFi module on the LG G5 not sold in Canada were very bad news. 

 

Hope seems to be around the corner with latest announcement from LG: The V20 should be available in Canada... that is if any provider dare to sell something that sounds good; not Samsung.

 

Other than the usual "Rogers cannot confirm or infirm devices availabilty..." does anyone have information about how the V20 will be marketed in Canada?

You will not find any info from any carrier until it's announced.

That said, I hope they pick it up. Who knows though, as the G5 was as popular as a hot turd.

It seems to be Apple vs Samsung now, and carriers generally only carry what they think will sell (read: sign up the most people to 2yr terms).

I hope they do decide to carry it (at a reasonable price point), as the V10 was a great phone.

Hello @jfdesrosiers

You have do understand that there isn't any information given to carriers if the device won't be sold in Canada. What do u expect them to say to u? They don't have information thus why they are saying that. Blame LG which won't bring it to Canada, not the carriers. LG wants big bucks for the devices from what i have seen and heard from others. If the carriers don't want to pay for that, then they won't as they see Samsung, Apple and some Sony phones are more popular then that one I guess. Again nothing can be said with no information.

LG announced the V20 WILL be available in Canada. Sales will begin as soon as Sept 6th is US. I just find strange that nobody is talking about (or anticipating) the first device to have a native 32 bits DAC and Android Nougat. 

 

I though many LG G4s users were waiting the next flagship from LG... maybe not!

Hello @jfdesrosiers

Many LG G4 /G5 users are mostly looking at other devices other then LG due to the software updating, battery draining which is something huge on the forums here. We shall see what happens.

I do miss the rear volume buttons though (I had the G4), and I like LG's skin better than Touchwiz.  The V20 may tempt me from my S7 Edge, IF the price is right.

 

Updates were ok with the G4, only because I wasn't afraid to flash another carrier's update. Rogers lagged behind every other carrier as usual.

Hello @GibMcFragger

I agree but again the battery issues with the G4 ( as u can see in the threads) and other issues made many leave LG. Plus it seems like LG is behind many others when they didn't give headphones with their devices, the G5 has a module battery but some are having water issues with their device ( moisture issues). I guess eveyone is different but i seen many complaints on those issues.

Hopefully the V20 comes to Rogers and in Canada soon.

Yea. There seems to be some quality control issues with LG. Always has been. That's too bad being they are trying to take a chunk of Samsung's sales.

Hello @GibMcFragger

Don't get me wrong, I love LG but they have gotten worse on their devices especially on quality control wise.

Anyways back on track lol.

Re: LG V20 to be available in Canada

Looks like it may have the module system like the G5, and they ditched the rear volume buttons.

 

Bleck. Never mind. Count me out.
