Im heading to USA at the end of the year for a couple of weeks and thinking of picking this one up to replace my 6s+. It really is a shame that it isnt being offered by LG here in NZ. It does look like to be the ideal device for a power user.

5 Minutes ago LG NZ have said they aren't launching in NZ

 

 

 

 

Why oh why LG?? I'm betting they are not able to handle the unexpected demand for the product and poor ol NZ is far far down the list of places they would supply to. Such a shame.

It's a shame. I'm not really keen to import such an expensive device and have warranty hassles.

 

Leaves me with Samsung / Apple as only options. I had a Huawei phone and it's ok but meh.

 

Not keen on 32GB S7 Edge. I need more space.

 

 

 

 

 

 

SD Card? 

 

I'll buy a V20 if reputable companies like JB Carry it, not importing one myself. I'll keep my note5 until such time as it gets replaced with a note 8

LG probably make $100-150 per phone profit. To make it worth selling they would probably need to move at least 1000 units. I doubt you'd find 1000 people who want one, or would buy one over a Samsung or Apple.

You sure can. Here's the product page for the Urban Grey V20. Stock should show up as available on that page within 24hrs.

 

It's a very nice phone, I'm much more impressed with it than I expected. HiFi audio is a big plus in my book, and the build quality is stellar.

That can be arranged. Which store is your local?

They sure are, was a nice surprise to find them in the box! Sound pretty good too, though I think I'll hang on to my trusty UE TripleFi 10s for a few years yet.

I sent an email to our goto wizard Han because I can't pre-order it but asked him to hold me one and I'll get a sub60 to get it when it's ready. He's pretty busy so unsure if he will have a chance.

Ha, Han's a good chap - he sits right across from me. Will have a word and make sure it's done.
