Does not preform like a phone of this spec should. The battery life is absolutely abhorrent, the fingerprint sensor is slow and very inconsistent, and the software experience is very buggy. The camera app is constantly crashing. The normal camera has A very narrow field of view but can take good pictures. The wide angle camera is of horrible quality. The selfie camera is awful. Snapchat videos and pictures are laggy frame rate dropping messes. And trying to watch videos is a constant drag and buffer freezing disaster. And it's not internet related, I have other devices on the same source that play the same video flawlessly. Its just this phone. Its awful. No screen protector fits it right either. And the mono bottom firing speaker is trash! Phone calls are super quiet even on max volume. This phone is awful!

Received the phone unlocked and new as promised. However, there are still other issues:
You can't update the phone outside of AT&T network. Because this phone is still new in its box, its on an old android 8 version. If you want to update the phone, you need to connect to the ATT network with an ATT sim. LG and ATT have designed it this way. You won't be able to update it any other way, and the bootloader is locked. Supposedly it is possible to flash other firmwares onto the phone, but of course this isn't supported by LG.
To do this, I had to obtain a ATT sim from walmart ($10 at walmart, 5$ from ATT) and a prepaid card (you can use a $10 prepaid card, but I found out they allow you to activate a single-day plan for only $2)
That cost me $20, although it should be possible to do for $7. Either way, its stupid that I have to go through this just to update the phone. Shame on you ATT, and to LG for going along with it.

Anyways, about the phone itself:
This phone is at least 1 year old with a non-removable battery. After charging it a few times and measuring it with accubattery, the battery has lost 10% of its health, effectively making it a 3000mAh battery.
Aside from that, this is an amazing phone. Its easily one of the best values for the price. The OLED screen is beautiful, it makes me want to re-watch everything I've ever seen using this screen. It plays all of the games I used to play on my V20, but with higher settings and is very smooth.
The design is meh. I hate that every manufacturer feels the need to copy Apple's decisions. Nobody feels that they could stick to their guns or try to make a unique design. (Motorola's new flip-phone looks pretty neat though) I really with it was closer to the V20 in design, or some of the old HTC phones. But overall, the phone is really great.

The sad thing is, this is the best high-end value phone LG currently has. (The V20 and V30 are still good if you're fine with their age)
The V40? A new V40 (GSM version) costs over $600 (CDMA version is $330, if you're willing to switch), and is basically the same phone but with 3 cameras instead of 2.
The G7? An IPS screen and only 4GB RAM. For the same price, its just not worth it. Especially now that I've experienced the OLED screen, I can't go back. The difference between these two phones is ridiculous considering these phones released only one month apart from each other. The V35 is basically a really hasty correction to the G7 when LG realized they released a sub-par phone.
The G8? Hardware-wise, the G8 is a slight upgrade, with Snapdragon 855(vs.845), 128GB, and an extra camera. Its about $180 more than the V35 though. (Used ones are at $320-340, if you're willing to accept the risk then it might be worth it.) If only the V35 wasn't so tied to AT&T, I believe it would be much more popular as a $300 phone.

I have complete removed and updated my review on this phone and updated my rating from four to five stars.

This phone is brand new. I was concerned because of the seller listing these phones under a dozen different seller names that are all the same company and many reviewers complaining that they received a used phone. (I suspect they unknowingly ordered a used/renewed phone or possibly inventory got mixed up when the seller shipped them to Amazon.) If you ordered new and got used just send it back for replacement. Mine was sealed in the ATT box and came with everything expected.

While waiting for my number to be ported to AT&T I hooked up to my wifi and that took no effort at all. I went through uninstalling or disabling apps and games I don’t want and customized the phones settings and home screen to my liking. I was prepared to restore my data from a backup on my SD card, but found that it was unnecessary. Instead, I installed AT&T Mobile Transfer on my old phone and using the Setup and Transfer app on the ThinQ I easily transferred all my data over to the new phone via wifi. Any apps I had installed were of course updated with google play. I immediately noticed that the phone was blazing fast compared to my old LG Stylo 2, but maybe that isn’t saying much. (I miss my stylus.) I haven’t put it through any real stress test yet, but I did fully charge the battery and then started streaming a movie. I kept checking the battery and it seemed fixed at 99%. I didn’t watch to long, but my old Stylo 2 drained like a bathtub when streaming a movie. Using LG Airdrive on the phone and LG Bridge on my laptop I could easily browse files on my phone and transfer things to and from the laptop such as photos, music and movies. Is there anything that isn’t easy with this phone?

Well, the bio metric sensor can exercise your patience. It doesn't seem to have to many issues reading finger prints - once it's learned them. Teaching it I found to be rather tedious. I probably saw 'The sensor needs to be cleaned' a thousand times. I cleaned the sensor. I scrubbed my hands. Eventually, I was able to get five fingers learned. Nice to have backups. The manual states there will be an issue if you have a scar. It's not kidding. I have a scar right down the center of the pad of my left index finger and the sensor had a heck of a time learning it. However, once it learned any of my prints, including the scarred finger, they all did unlock the phone, but not with consistency. Sometimes one touch and the phone is unlocked. Other times I touch each finger that the phone has learned and none of them unlock the phone so I have to go to the secondary method I chose. I'll work on it.

Wifi calling does work. I tested on my home internet which is pretty lousy and the call kept breaking up, but that's my internets issue not the phones. I see no reason to use wifi with my unlimited plan anyway. I guess if I'm in an area where there is no cell service it might come in handy, but odds are that if there is no cell service it is unlikely that any wifi will be nearby.

Hotspot worked like a charm as well. I hooked both my laptop and TV up with no issues. Download speed was only about 5Mb, but when my internet is down or we have a power outage it's better than nothing.

Once my phone number was ported over to ATT I made some calls. They hear me fine and I hear them fine.

The phone handled streaming from Amazon Prime with flying colors. I kept hearing about the great sound on this phone. I wasn't impressed, but who doesn't use buds when listening to music anyway.

This does come with Android 8. Repeated attempts to update to 9 failed. The phone tells me the software is up to date. Last updated says 'never updated'. ATT did release 9 for the V35 months ago and ATT is my provider/carrier. Not Cricket or any other MVNO. I seriously considered going to the ATT store to have the update manually done, but I live outside of town so I plan my trips to town when I have several reasons to go. I never got that far.

I had started my prepaid promotional plan with ATT and paid upfront for a year of service. Five days later ATT billed me a second time. I did call ATT and work out the issue, but something else happened at this point. I made my daily attempt to update my phones software and lo and behold it started updating. My phone came with V350AWM10w. The update skipped 12a and updated to 12e. I updated again and got 12j. The next update skipped 12k and updated to 20b. I now have Android 9! I do another update to 20c and one last update to V350AWM20d. That’s the most current software. I suspect I just had to wait for ATT to properly put my new phone in the system. When they did that they erroneously charged me again, but I fixed that. So apparently in order to get the updates you just need to be patient. Not my forte. I did notice that when the phone was sitting on my wireless charger during updates the phone got pretty warm. It did not get warm doing updates when not on the charger. I don't know why.

I mentioned LG Bridge earlier. Install on your PC. It works just fine and makes it extremely easy to move files to and from the phone. It supposedly can be used for software update by connecting your phone to your computer with a USB cable, but I tried during my marathon updating and it wouldn’t work so I just did all the updates from my phone. LG Bridge connects to your phone using your phones LG AirDrive too. Air Drive isn’t exactly an app. You find it in your settings under network. This gives you access to the files on your phone like songs and pictures which you can just grab and drop onto your PC. LG Bridge also connects to your V35 via USB cable to perform backups which will be kept on your PC of coourse.

I checked out my phone online and found that it was manufactured October 2018 and left the factory December 2018. It apparently sat on the shelf until I bought it which explains why it was so far behind in updates.

I have absolutely no complaint with this brand new phone. It’s clean. It’s fast. Everything works flawlessly, except maybe that bio metric reader when sticking your fingerprint on there, but I doubt that's something unique to this phone. It's just something I'll need to work on. I believe my issue is with my dry hands and fingers.

My only two issues were ATT issues. (Double billing and waiting for the software update to Android 9.) I thought this deal was to good to be true and I would have lots of problems and be dissatisfied with the phone, but it turned out to be a great deal on a great phone. I couldn’t have made a better decision making this purchase. I say you should take the plunge and purchase this phone because you will get a brand new phone that works great. It's being sold at a great price so you should get one before they're gone.

This phone is GSM unlocked. Worked with my T-Mobile sim just fine. No notches, nice light weight especially if you're worried about a case making it too heavy.Unfortunately it was stuck on Android 8.0 with November 2018 security patch. It should have updated to Android 9. Maybe if you try an AT&T sim card it'll go through the update. These days you can't underestimate security risks in phones.

Original, ATT branded, unopened new device. Seller Wireless Tech. I already have ATT, so can't determine if truly unlocked, but for under $300, this phone is a smoker, must have performance. Put it this way, original price of this phone a little over year ago was $900!! Would I pay that? No. But at $300 dollars you are getting flagship device which can still compete with today's overpriced options. Get it.
