LG V20 review: Time-saver edition

 

The LG V20 is the epitomy of LG's technology and the embodiment of a no-comprise phone. It has two screens, two cameras, four high-quality digital to analog converters, a military-compliant shock-resistant all-metal body with the trademark LG removable...

The LG V20 combines a metal body with military-grade shock resistance and a removable back and battery ; Bright screen with great color accuracy and good contrast ; Secondary screen is innovative, adds more functionality than just an always-on mode ;...

Pros and cons: Our quick verdict on the LG V20

 

Don't let its dull looks fool you: Beyond the V20's flagship-level power and slightly tweaked version of Android Nougat is a device tailor-made for creatives. The V20 is an excellent media player (even with lossless files) and doubles as an impressive...

Premium performance ; Excellent audio quality ; Bright, attractive screen ; One of the few phones to come with Nougat ; Removable battery!

Dual-camera system could be better ; Second screen isn't that useful ; Not water resistant ; Tough to use with one hand ; Expensive on certain carriers

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 is the best phone with a replaceable battery -- but that's it

 

If a phone with a swappable battery is a must-have for you, the LG V20 is the best you can get.

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 review: lots of features, less refinement

 

LG's V20 is an Android phone I'd recommend to people who insist on having one of the device's four cornerstone features: a replaceable battery, elaborate manual video camera controls, excellent...

Replaceable battery ; Best manual camera controls of any phone ; Excellent built-in microphones

Too big ; LG's software needs an overhaul ; No water resistance ; Embarassing amount of bad carrier apps

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: Stealing the Note 7’s spotlight

 

With the galaxy note 7 quite literally self-destructing and throwing Samsung's holiday plans into disarray, LG finds itself with an unexpected opportunity with the v20. Today we're aiming to provide a review helpful to both former Galaxy Note users and...

Display is color accurate, sharp, and bright ; Secondary display is surprisingly helpful ; Two camera lenses, standard angle, and wide-angle ; Replaceable battery ; Easy access to innards

Battery life a day or less ; Concerns about fragility of camera array glass ; Pricing quite high

The LG V20 is a smartphone made for people who love smartphones and for whom price takes a backseat to flexibility. No, it’s not the most expensive smartphone on the market, but for the cash, you really need to know what you’re getting – and what...
