Is this battery the same quality or a least pretty close to the OEM battery of the LG v20?

Allen Wong - Reply

Don’t buy this battery. It looks like an OEM but it’s not. That’s fine but I’ve had this for a couple months and it quickly discharges now. I’ve gone back to my original for the time being.

The only reason why I purchased it from here was the company which I have mad respect for. But this issue isn’t their problem and we’re talking about an old phone which LG doesn’t even make batteries for. People will still come here since it’s the last phone with easy access to the battery and it’s just a great budget phone!
