LG V20 vs LG V10 vs LG G5: specs comparison
After the not-so-well received G5 flagship, LG today introed a new, and can we say a rather important device that definitely needs to show that LG still has the mojo.

The LG V20 seems busting with potential, especially for all those that cherish listening to and recording hi-fi audio thanks to the 32-bit quad DAC with deliciously-low levels of THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) and high-quality microphones.

But we are dealing with a smartphone, after all, so we felt compelled to both its predecessor, the V10, and LG's current flagship, the G5. Time for a specs comparison!

Pixel density

Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

Technology

Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

Hardware
System chip

System chip - Most modern handsets use an advanced chip that includes many of the device’s hardware modules like the processor, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and sometimes even the wireless radio. This field shows what particular system chip (or System-on-a-Chip) is used in the phone.

Processor

Processor - The processor is the main computing component of a phone and is a major factor when it comes to the overall speed of the device. Some more powerful smartphones use dual-core and quad-core processors designed to deliver greater performance.

System memory

System memory - System memory, or RAM memory is the type of memory that the device uses to temporarily store data from the OS or currently-running apps. The more RAM available to the device, the better the performance will be when multiple or heavier programs are running.

LG makes good phones but falls short of that one or two features that can make it stand out and compete with Samsung flagship. Think if the Note 7 fire fiasco wasn't there, v20 wouldn't stand a chance against it. Not sure if LG is prepared to release it immediately to take advantage of Note 7 sales halt. If not, give Samsung couple of weeks, they will bounce back with the new lot and make up lost ground.

Dual cameras are ugly. V10 is the best of the 3

Anyone else notice the G5 has a superior front-facing camera? Why didn't the V20 get that same camera?
