Keeping things big, bold and beautiful with the LG V20

Like most companies now, LG has two flagships the G and the V. Now LG has updated last year’s popular V10.

The LG V20 has a number of big enhancements from most of the places you would expect in all the places you would expect from a yearly refresh. The biggest focus of the V20 seems to be its audio. The LG V20 includes a Hi-Fi Quad DAC (digital to analog converter.) This is designed to minimize distortion and ambient noise by up to 50 percent. LG has also partnered with B&O Play to fine-tune the V20’s audio adding equalisers and audio analysers to the software. LG notes, though, that the V20 with B&O tuning is “available in specific markets only.”

On the back of the V20 has an upgraded 16-megapixel standard lens and an 8-megapixel wide-angle lens featuring a Hybrid Auto Focus. This offers laser autofocus, phase detection autofocus, and contrast autofocus. Electronic Image Stabilization 3.0 further reduces shaky video capture on the move. the body of the V20, which is made of a lightweight aluminum. The corners of the phone are covered with silicone polycarbonate to help reduce shock, and LG says that the V20 passed MIL-STD 810G Transit Drop Test. That means that the V20 was dropped on its front, back, sides, and corners from four feet up and kept on ticking.

The body of the V20 is made of a lightweight aluminum. The corners of the phone are covered with silicone polycarbonate, a light,yet strong material that will help reduce shock. LG points out that the V20 passed MIL-STD 810G Transit Drop Test. This means that the V20 has dropped on its front, back, sides, and corners from up to four feet up without popping its clogs.

One of the freshest features of the LG V10 is visible on the V20, the secondary display above its main 5.7-inch 2560×1440 screen. This secondary display has a resolution of 160×1040 and can be used for app shortcuts, accessing quick settings, and expanding lengthy notifications.

The rest of the LG V20’s spec sheet reads like a typical 2016 flagship including a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of built-in storage, a microSD slot, NFC, USB Type-C and this year’s favourite feature, the fingerprint reader. There’s also a removable 3,200mAh battery.
