    They're OK/good for a freebies with a phone. But didn't think they were as good as the Sennheiser MM30G which are my daily beater headphones. Certainly didn't seem like a $200 pair!

    (I've got some pretty decent headphones to compare with: KEF M500, Audio Technica AD900, Etymotic ER4... )

    Edit: Just had a look on B&O website, and the bundled headphones don't appears there. Definitely don't look like the H3.

    So now the G6 has the quad dac treatment. ...if they bundle the boh3 with the g6, maybe that's the way to, annoyingly i can't just buy a 200-300 $ set of in ear now as i might be buying it twice

    I thought the V is the 'premium' line and the G is the normal ?
    if that's the case then only the V would get the premium accessories ?

    or do LG go the way of the galaxy and pixel and just move to having two phones in the segment, a 5" and 5.5" both with decent spec's, just different screen sizes ?

    some rumours that the G6 will be a similar body and back case to the v20 ...

    edit - did realise the leaks !!!
    G6 is looking sharp

    The thing is the V is mainly about audio playback and record. ...I'm concerned with playback so G6 should be fine.
    Htc went overboard on audio and bundled a set of hi res in ears, so did v20, and given the inclusion of the 33bit dac..G6 might include some as well, presumably the beoplay h3.

    Just a heads up.

    There have been a number of anecdotal reports of screen burn-in as well as red/blue shift (w/o the use of any sleep-well app) in Korean LG mobile forums.

    The general consensus is that it's the luck of the draw. Having said that, some are on their 4th replacement handset. :Paranoid:

    I've had my V20 since December. The only issue I have come across is light bleed from the second screen but it's only really noticeable at night and hasn't really bothered me.

    Down to 619 from the ebay link above.

    I've been looking for a new phone, was considering the Huawei Mate 9 too.

    from what ive read on other forums and here -
    scammed not likely. but a very poor customer experience seems highly likely.
    and if you need to warranty claim then all bets are off :(
    some have had seemless experience others the proverbial nightmare

    brisbane address with a sydney phone number and no ABN on the website ...

    add that they list 699 robinson road as a physical address, and from what i can see on google maps, that address doesnt actually exist
    ozbargin has a page that says "Reason: Scam website"

    I ordered mine from ebay seller qd_au for $569.

    Had a good look over their feedback and it didn't seem too bad - one complaint about the box not being sealed and dust on the phone which seemed to be rectified as qd_au asked for it to be sent back for exchange.

    I am still waiting for delivery, something weird happening with Australia post. Tracking indicates its on-board for delivery then back at the sorting facility.

    If I get a year from the phone i'll be happy.
