We loved the LG V10 and its quirks, so naturally, the V20 had us pretty psyched. In case you were wondering about the timing, it’s not intentional (we asked).
Targeted at the prosumer, The 5.7in V20 sheds the dual front-facing camera of the V10 for a dual-lens rear camera, a 16MP standard lens and an 8MP wide angle one. Whether it’s upclose photos you’re after, or if you’d like fit in more, the V20 has you covered. It even does focus peaking in manual mode to help you find your focus fast.
It also does HD audio recording, captures great video by cutting out unwanted sounds and supports lossless audio formats. Tuned by B&O, the V20’s bundled earphones aren't your average pair of sub-pair earphones, but B&O Play ear gear worth S$198.
The V20 adds more features to the second screen this time around to enable quick checking of notifications that are now easier to see. It runs Android N and is packing a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB RAM and 64GB onboard storage. And yes, it has microSD slot for hoarding up to 2TB. Best bit is it has a removable 3200mAh battery.
So do double the screens and double the rear camera lens mean double the smartphone satisfaction? We’ll find out when we get our review unit.
The LG V20 will be available at S$998 in fetching shades of Silver and Titan from 5 November. Make your purchase at your usual telcos or authorised retailers to get an S$88 mobile casing premium pack while stocks last.
