LG V20 Review, Specifications & Price

Last year LG released the V10 which was largely received with great acclaim and reviews, with most reviewers and people being hugely impressed with the camera quality and device aesthetics. The v10 easily made its way into the top camera devices list even beating the iPhone 6 and LG’s earlier release the G4 both of which were great camera phones.

It was no surprise when LG decided to create a successor to the V10, the LG V20. The LG V20 is not just an additional smartphone to LG’s V series. It is a multimedia powerhouse aimed at Android enthusiasts and content creators that love working on an excellent video recording as well as amazing photos. As such, it comes with high-end audio reproduction and recording features.

The duet of primary cameras we knew from the LG G5 is present here as well – one camera shoots regular high-resolution photos, while the other sports a wide-angle lens for a greater field of view.

Moreover, the top-notch hardware tucked inside the hood makes this phone an ideal proposition for power users, with plenty of processing, might offer. An excellent addition to the whole package is the always-on secondary display located at the front of the phone. It displays shortcuts to frequently used functions, and notifications can be shown even when the primary display is not lit. While there’s no modular functionality here, the LG V20 offers a removable battery – a rarity among metal-made handsets.
