This one of the best smartphones which are underrated. The V20 is really a good phone from the LG. The V20 comes with a great quad DAC for significantly improved speaker and audio performance. This is surprisingly the first phone to come with an Android Nougat OS out of the box.
The built quality and the design is a lot better than the LG G5 this year. This is seriously a well-designed smartphone. This is an aluminum phone from the top to bottom. The device feels really light. The phone is not too big. The upper and lower panels are very small. And the most amazing thing is the device is shock resistant against drops.
It has a fingerprint rear at the back. That’s really quick which doubles as a power button. It has a 3200mAh battery which is removable. There is a button at the side to open the rear panel and there is no need to force shutdown the phone. The device comes with a USB type C power slot. At the bottom comes the power slot, audio phone jack, and a loud speaker. These are placed very carefully without any overfilled feeling. There is a B & O (bang-Olufsen) branding at the back which is an n audio products company. The volume rockers are present on the left.
The side panels are almost missing and there is a full glass display extending towards the edges. The V20 bears the dimensions of 159.7 x 78.1 x 7.6 mm. The weight is 174 grams. Available in Titan, Silver, Pink colors. The NFC is located at the back of the device.
The LG V20 comes with a secondary display of size 2.1 inch which is placed at the top of the display. The secondary display resolution is 160 x 1040 pixels. The size of the display is 5.7 inches. The screen to body ratio is 72.4%.
The pixel density of the device is 513ppi which is really high. Comes with a quad HD display with a resolution of 1440 x 2560pixels. Protected by corning gorilla glass. This is like a dock for the shortcuts of things which you might do often like toggles for settings. It is pretty quick than the actual toggles you find and you can leave it there all the time. But I wish I would have control over what exactly it shows on the top screen. However, this is one of the best features of V20.
FEATURESLG UX 5.0:
LG V20 has come with a nano sim slot and with a certification of MIL-STD-810G. The device has packed with an exceptional Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 chipset. Running on the ever best Android OS, v7.1 Nougat out of the box. Supplemented with a 4GB RAM and internal storage of 32/64GB and expandable up to 256GB. It is embedded with a Quad-core (2x2.15 GHz Kyo & 2x1.6 GHz Kryo) processor. Loaded with an Adreno 530 GPU. Here comes the LG most wanted and loved the dual camera, Dual 16 MP (29mm, f/1.8) and an 8 MP (12mm, f/2.4) with additional features such laser autofocus, OIS, LED flash.
The camera features 1/2.6" sensor size @ 29mm, 1/3.2" sensor size @ 12mm, geo-tagging, touch focus, face/smile detection, panorama, HDR. Recording video with 2160p@30fps, 1080p@30fps, 720p@120fps, 24-bit/192kHz stereo sound rec modes.
The LG V20 also bears a secondary camera of 5 MP. Sensors such as Fingerprint, accelerometer, gyro, proximity, and compass and color spectrum are available. Comes with a removable 3200mAh Li-ion battery. There is an NFC feature at the back.
The speaker quality is significantly improved when the quad DAC is on. If you have high-end headphones then this is the perfect device to connect with. The thing is it has a removable battery and an expandable storage in a high-end phone which makes it a rare bee.
The device has the best software as it is running on the Nougat and this is the first one to have it. This is skinned with the LG UI. It is provided with a lot of nougat features and there is an in-app feature where you can search the apps installed.
The standby time of the device is seriously impressive even when you leave the secondary camera on. It is provided with the multi-window tasking. The Geek benchmark score of the device is 1604 on the single core and 3845 on the multi core. 25333 on 3D mark. The speed is really fast and it did a great job with upload and download speed of 63.89MBPS and 52.02MBPS.
Coming to the gaming performance the device does a very good job with the high-end games. I played Zombie Frontier 3, the gameplay is pretty smooth, no hiccups. I have also played some of the best and high-end games. Which gave me an incredible feeling. The dual display is perfect and the battery life is long enough.
The phone comes with dual cameras at the back which is the first one and not the Apple to give it first. The LG did it in V5 and V10. Coming to the camera it is bearing a 16MP regular field view camera and an 8MP camera 135 degrees super wide angle camera.
These are two totally independent cameras which you can switch between, to get a different look. And the super wide angle camera does look super cool.
The cameras really fun and designed especially for recreational purposes. You also got the improved mic to record better audio while video recording. In general, I would say that this is, in general, a pretty great android camera.
Coming to the final thing this is a very good smartphone which is quite underrated I don’t know why. This is an incredible smartphone. The dual cameras work just perfect. The body is strong. The secondary display is good and it doesn’t drain much battery. The price range is expected to be around 40K to 50K depending on the variants provided.
