LG V20 review

 

LG's twisted creation is back, with even more features this time around

Removable battery ; Wide-angle images never get old ; Audiophile-grade hardware

Varying utility of second screen ; Just missed out on the Snapdragon 821 ; Disappointing camera performance

There’s no contest: the LG V20 is the most feature-packed smartphone of the year. It’s a phablet that mostly nails the basics and adds on a ton of niche features, some of which you might not use all that much.

LG V20 review

 

The LG V20 isn't a bad phone. It covers all its bases with the latest hardware and a solid design. But other handsets edge it out in so many ways that, aside from the V20's swappable battery, you're better off buying something else.

The LG V20 records really high-quality audio and features a swappable battery and secondary wide-angle lens.

For its high price, the phone doesn't break any new ground in camera performance or battery life.

The LG V20 is the best phone you can buy with a removable battery, and its audio recording prowess is a cherry on top, but skip the phone if neither is a priority.

LG V20

 

The attractive LG V20 phablet is overflowing with features that will appeal to audiophiles, photographers, and average Android users alike.

Durable metal body. Top-of-the-line hardware. Excellent camera performance. High-quality audio. Useful "secondary" display. Latest Android software. Includes removable battery, expandable storage, and IR blaster.

Average battery life. Heavy software layer and carrier bloatware. No waterproofing or wireless charging.

Conclusions The LG V20 is a fantastic phablet, no matter which carrier you choose. That said, the differences in carrier pricing make it difficult to give the phone a universal rating. At $672, the V20 is easily the best big phone for the price, coming...

LG V20 review

 

Whether it's taking sexy selfies or scenic landscapes, the LG V20 is the camera phone for the job.

LG’s decision to not sell the V20 globally and limit B&O certification to certain areas sours what would be a sweet deal. What’s doubly annoying is that it’s a very, very good time to sell a big-screen smartphone. Samsung’s with the exploding , and LG...

LG V20 Review

 

Note: This review is based on a Korean unit of the LG V20. The B&O Branding, as well as specifics related to the user interface and user experience, may not be available in other regions.

Fast and fluid system performance ; Secondary screen has great potential ; 64GB storage as standard ; Fast charging ; Great image quality ; Highly customizable UI ; High-fidelity audio recording capabilities ; Excellent sound quality during phone calls

Not the prettiest phone out there ; Battery life is average at best ; Fingerprint lock experience could be improved

It is no easy task to describe what being an LG V20 user feels like, but to wrap things up, I’d say that it is quite an adventure. At first, there’s the euphoria of owning a phone so technically advanced – both in terms of hardware and software...
