Hi to best of my understanding, even if u enable the UE folder it does not guarantee that you would have VOLTE . VOLTE config files for the carrier JIO / AIRTEL must be there in the phone already else it will not support VOLTE.

Hence , even though u had enable UE it did not enable VOLTE as ur device did not have the VOLTE config files for AIRTEL / JIO .

Now I say because of ur mistakes u have been landed in a difficult situation with ur modem . DO NOT FLASH ANYTHING MORE ON UR DEVICE.

If u want to restore ur modem I would highly advice u to get a paid service from @ Unlock_LG on Telegram . He may charge anywhere between 10 to 30 USD and he is the best bet . I know the guy personally and except probably a few guys in China he is the most knowledgable and easily accessible . Also the guy is based out of Ukraine so ur supporting someone from the country. Also tell him that u had donated during the SM8150 firehose crowdfunding and see if he can discount u a bit on the service . You may also ask him if he could do a Cross Flash to India Version which may bring u VOLTE ( but CROSS FLASH is never easy so it may also break the Modem once again. TG user MAMA TAO has extensive knowledge on Cross Flashing )


For free solution , which can cause more harm than good u check the below Group

t.me/v50thinq 

User VL48 from the group could be ur best bet , @ SFPGuido ( original founder of the UE folder trick ) , Mama Tao , audietron , Enforc are some of the people who could give u free advice but then it may or may not work out .

There is a review in flipkart which is 27 days old, he bought it in 40k and all praise for the phone but now he would be repenting by seeing a 50% discount in less than 1 month. I can feel for the guy

LG G8X Users Be Like. Life pehle bahut boring thi, Itna khas mobile nahi tha, Tinder par match nahi mil rahi thi, Battery backup bas 2 ghante ka tha, Ek hi screen thi. Mein bahut dukhi rehta tha. Par Jabse flipkart se LG G8X Liya hai, Life bilkul badal gyi , Ab pubg acha chalta , Battery backup 5+ ghante ka ho gaya, Double screen hai , Tinder par ab match aane lagi hai aur Life mein maje hi maje hai ab. LG aur Flipkart ka is deal ke liye bahut bahut dhanyawad.

Bro, one point to ask, why anyone will sell 55k device at 18-19k. Had it not included the second display, price could have been cheaper by 5k atleast. Then whole India would have jumped to buy this device. It has amoled, that’s why PWM is kind of visible, which will strain eyes

I still don’t understand, why they removed charger. For sure, it’s not influenced by Apple’s decision which has come recently, as they must have planned it a month ago.

1. It’s a special limited edition. The only thing special is they have not put charger in the box, though there is space for it in the box. I would say, it’s a stock clearance edition.

2. Good thing is, import date is Oct 2020 only, so no chances of refurbished phones.

3. They should have removed earphones instead of charger. Infact, on review they should have sent charger instead of power bank

4. It’s not made in China. Although it’s not Made in India either. Still, feels good someway.

I’m using Oneplus 30W warp charger for now. But since, it’s charging very slow, will buy another compatible one. Any suggestions?

Any suggestion for screen protection films/screen guard?

#mystory

Sure, many people tried to buy it on Day 1 midnight and failed, but there was hundreds of stock. The order confirmation page came at12.01am. Next morning 8am, people bought it on COD and gave up on card discount.

11.55- Got reminder notification on telegram. Thought for 2 mins, do I really need this? No. But let’s try hands on this unique device, if I can get it and it’s totally worth is for 20K. I was actually so sure, that there would be less than 100 stock and I’m not gonna get it, because I am not using any script.
11.57- Added money in SBI debit card and saved it in Flipkart account
11.59- wait, search and click product (on app).
12.00- Hit Buy now button.
12.00.20-12.00.40: On payment page, SBI card was under heavy load and FK showing message to use other payment method. But since, I was just trying, I thought to keep trying.
12.00.40-12.01- Tried third time, Voila! Payment done, order completed.

I think, it’s about hitting Buy now button at the right time is most important and sure, they had huge stock.

Bought only for experience and might sell it off in a month or so. Happy with my OP 7T so far.

Most probable explanation is device wasn’teant for India but was diverted/cleared to be sold in India as charger plugs varies, they removed all the chargers.

Looks like this phone will push an average mid-range mobile user to become a high-end user.
Once they get the taste of Snapdragon 800 series processor, it is hard to go back to 700 or 600 series.
Going back to LCD display from LED is also hard.
People may start playing the pre-installed high graphic games just to test the gamepad on the second screen.
These users may buy a wireless charger for the first time just to experience it.
Some will probably go for a premium headset to take advantage of the Quad DAC.
IP68 certification is also new in this price range.

Not really. Most people just don’t care about displays.

Anyone can suggest on below accessories/points?

  1. Reliable and best charger (is the LG charger is mandatory if we have to claim warranty?)
  2. Screenguards (Since it has dual screens)
  3. Good sturdy case since external body is made of glass
  4. Reliable mobile insurance

I am also thinking, do we need to use tempered glass? If yes on both screens? It won’t effect on movement/adjustment of screens?

Charger- any QC 3 certified is enough for warranty claim.. suggestion- mi QC 3 charger

This has a premium OLED display. Don’t ruin your experience by using screen protectors. Just use the silicon back cover. That’s it. Otherwise, what’s the point of owning a premium handset
