    Looking to get a new phone this month and considering getting the LG V60. (minus the double screen which I don't need)
    Any thoughts? Or should I be looking at another phone for the same price. (around $450.00)

    Samsung S21 Ultra 5G fills that wide gap.

    V60 prices have dropped but LG is out of the phone business now. Just a consideration.

    They announced they will still do system updates for 3 years but I'm not banking on that.

    The phone itself is great. The 2nd screen/case is not a necessity. I use my phone in a regular case and only use the 2nd case at home.

    Quad Dac, headphone jack, sd card all still there and the battery is really good especially w/no second screen.

    I'd jump all over that, except I HATE how samsung just builds taller and thinner phones.
    We don't read text up and down we read it right and left. Having a tall thin phone is kind of useless for my needs.
    If they had something like that that was a half an inch to an inch WIDER, I'd be all over it.

    What do you think will happen when they stop doing support for their LG phones?

    They'll go where the old phones go for Android enthusiasts; in the bottom drawer of a nightstand.

    You can change font sizes which could solve those scrolling problems @Papamalo.

    Wow! Love the galaxy s21 ultra 5g and it's specs.
    Any ideas where I can get a great deal without signing on to a new carrier? I am on simple metro pcs.

    Here in Jinan, China, I just got a nice deal on a Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G, and the local Samsung store had deals on Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G as well. Of course there's no carrier contract commitments in this country. What really sold me on the Note20 rather than S21, is the Note20 can use micro-SD for expandable storage and the S21 doesn't.
