LG V20 Top Features – If you’re looking for an Android device with a large screen, amazing sound, and a great camera that won’t explode in your pocket, then the LG V20 might be something to consider.
Now, you will personally thought the LG G5 was a great phone earlier this year, but the actual build quality of it left a little to be desired, due to the way the battery would eject.
With the V20, things change. It’s a full unibody metal design, which LG says is madeof aircraft grade metal, so it’s nice and strong.
There’s then a plastic coating applied to that to keep the metal looking good, and you’ll likely hear some people complain about that, as some people just want that metal feel, but that’s the decision that LG made here to keep the phone looking nice.
The Dual Camera System
If you pick up the LG V20 and look at it, much like the iPhone 7-plus, one of the first things that’ll stand out is that it rocks a dual camera system, that is likely the futureof smartphone technology, but for now, it’s a rarity.
Here on the V20, you have a 16 megapixel standard camera, paired up with an eight megapixel wide angle lens that will capture a 135 degree field of view. The wide angle one lets you capture much more of the scene.
The Audio Experience
The next standout feature on the LG V20, is the audio experience, and seriously, if you’re an audiophile, and looking for an Android phone that will drive even the most power hungry headphones, the LG V20 is it.
Why is that? Well, because on the inside, this phone is rocking a Quad DAC, and it’s the first and only smartphone to do so. You can listen to audio through the USB-C port on the bottom as well as the built-in headphone jack.
But it doesn’t just do a good job at playing music, it also captures great sound, thanks to the three on board microphones that capture 24 bit hi-fi audio.
The Removable Battery
Next big feature on the LG V20 is the removable battery. A couple of years ago, this one wouldn’t really have been worth mentioning, but here at the end of 2016,it’s getting harder and harder to find a flagship smartphonewith a removable battery.
You won’t get that with the iPhone 7, not with the Samsung Galaxy S7, not with the HTC 10, and not with the brand new Google Pixel either, so it’s nice to see it here.
This means you can easily carry an extra battery in your bag and when you’re getting low on power, simply swap it out instantly to get back to full power.
Oh, and speaking of the battery, the LG V20 use a 3,200 mAH battery, so those swaps shouldn’t be happening all that frequently. Also, for making sure that the inside of the device looks just as cool as the outside of the device. They put some work into making the inside look good, and that’s definitely a nice touch.
The Secondary Display
Like last year’s LG V10, the V20 also integrates a small, secondary display strip right above the main 5.7 inch quad HD display, which is used to give you glancical information without you having to turn on the main screen.
When the main display is off, the secondary strip will show you the date and time, the battery level. No need to turn on your phone to get to that quick info.
You can also use that secondary display when the main screen is on and there are quick actions there as well, which allow you to do things, like quickly turn on the rear LED for flashlight mode.
