Don't Forget About Quick Remote On Your LG V20 - Sprint Product Ambassadors


So one thing you'll find on the LG V20 as well as many of the other flagship LG phones (Since the LG G2) is an LG Exclusive App called "Quick Remote". For those of you who have had an LG phone before, this is nothing new. However, it's still very worthy of a second look (as you would be surprised just how many of us have forgotten this super-useful little app).


So, let's take take that second look. First, locate it in the LG folder of your LG V20.

Quick Remote is nice, quick and easy to program. It that turns your LG V20 into a useful universal remote control that not only controls the devices of a single room but hosts a collection of settings for five seperate room profles (Each of which can be custom named). It's perfect for keeping things neat an organized and gives you a backup of those critical remote controls that may control your favorite device.


How does it work? Well, LG gives you a list of pre-programmed codes for popular TV's, Cable Boxes, Audio Systems, Projectors and Air Conditioners. This is similar to the remote your cable company may give you or your favorite universal remote.

Not impressed? Well, it doesn't stop there. Using the customer layout tool, you can make a more streamlined layout. You can design a hybrid remote (of many devices), organize your most used functions and label buttons exactly the way you want them. The sky is the limit too. For devices not on the list of preprgrammed codes, all you need is an original remote and you can learn any (and all) functions to clone all or parts of any remote.

Each room it's easy to reorganize. You can order your devices easily by simply dragging up or down the list of devices.


On your TV or cable box remote you also have a place to enter your favorite channel numbers for quick one button access. This is particularly useful when trying channel numbers on providers that stretch numbers in the 1000's, thanks to SD and HDTV broadcasts.

The best example I can think of where the LG Quick Remote came in handy was this past Christmas. My mother-in-law just purchased a replacement 1980's Fisher Audio Receiver (just like the one she had previously loved and which recently became victim to a Florida lightining storm). For some odd reason her old remote did not work (even though it was from the same make and model). Puzzled, the solution was all too clear? LG to the rescue! In a few quick keystrokes (and using preprogrammed codes), the LG Quick Remote app had the device under control and back to normal. Just another reason LG is awesome.


So anyways, I encourge you to play around with Quick Remote. Will it replace some of those fancy high-end smart remotes? No, probably not but it will certainly give you something nice, available and able to empower you to change that channel at the laundromat or hijack the TV from your significant other.
