LG V50 to be released this week after an 'optimization' delay bests the S10 5G performance

We don't blame it, as the current generation of 5G phones doesn't have the modem integrated into the Snapdragon 855 chipset, but rather extra modules tacked on to add the next-gen standard. These extra components take extra space and tax the battery extra, too, so if LG found a way to synchronize them for better performance and decided to postpone the V50 launch because of that, hat tip.
LG V50 release date on US carriers

As for the US release date of the LG V50, the report only says "this month," so it shouldn't be that much longer of a wait before Sprint, Verizon, and the rest of the local 5G gang widens their portfolio.
In Europe, the LG V50 ThinQ is facing much stiffer competition. The Oppo Reno 5G was already outed for Swisscom, and the carrier will also have Samsung, Xiaomi, and other 5G phones in its roster, so the battle for the consumers' hearts and minds will be more uphill.

I liked the G4, despite the bootloops, and loved the V20. Sadly, poor battery life and lack of updates forced me to go back to Sammy. I still miss the V20, though. It was a tank.

the v20 was there best phone, went downhill from there. Longing for those days to return. There devices are good they, for some unknown reason, refuse to modernize their software look and feel. It is customizable but the stock look and UI leave MUCH to be desired.

The V20 was great but the V30 was even better. Better cameras. Better battery life by a longshot. Better screen. And better size. Also just better looking. Losing the IR blaster and removable battery cover was well worth the improvements they made to it. All my opinion of course from having both phones and still using the V30 currently.

It's funny you mention that. I know I'm still waiting on an update, but my battery life is great and my customer service experiences have been good.
