LG V20 Q&A: Ask us anything!

Just like any other gadget, the LG V20 does have a few issues. Nevertheless, the pros outweigh the cons on this one, and we will have to admit that we liked this one very much! 

If you've taken a sneak peek at our recently-released review of the LG V20, you'd know why: we are pretty impressed with the V20's performance, the useful secondary display, a hefty amount of native storage, as well as the excellent camera performance and image quality. Oh, and let's not forget the outstanding audio recording capabilities!

In case our review has left an unanswered question or two, we are giving you the chance to go ahead and ask us anything about the V20 in the comments down below. We'll do our best to answer as many questions as possible!

Which of these two are better in SOUND recording of video - especially at loud rock concerts? V20 or the current KING of video sound - Lumia 950XL? Or at least just to compare SOUND recording of these two.

Could you compare the quad dac to the one found on the HTC 10?

It's camera is top notch bruh. Definitely an S7 tier.

I have both the s7 edge and the v10. I actually prefer the camera on the v10. I'm guessing the v20 is even better..

Do you see yourself using the secondary display in the long-term or just for couple of days and stop using it after the novelty is over ? My only concern is it's located on top (on an already tall phone) which is not easily accessible.

How does the V20 compare to the ZTE Axon 7? How do the DAC and AMPs stack up?

Can LG be ever be greater than Xperia phones , since Xperia phones are the best ALL round smartphones?

Please. You could put an Xperia on one end of a table and a half eaten potato with a smiley face drawn on it on the other side of a table, and the Xperia wouldn't even be the best phone on the table.

That calling the Xperia line the best all around smartphones is ridiculous since they are overpriced and not up to snuff when compared to the competition.

Dont slander what you cant afford. Quality over Quantity. Having the top range specs doesnt define a smartphone as all round. Xperia phones have a fluid stable UI , Best balanced cameras (Not over saturated colours like *cough cough* , good... if not great battery life and the Xperia OmniBalance is unrivalled.

Bad screens, mediocre camera, weak featureset, dated UI... It's bottom rung of the flagship devices and has an inexplicably high price. Heck, if you live in the US you don't even get the fingerprint scanner enabled.

Question 1: Is the rumoured "light bleed" of the V20's secondary display true? Question 2: How calibrated is it's display? How color-accurate is it, especially when displaying high-res videos? Question 3: How good is it's audio output and how does it's DAC compared to the HTC 10's? Cheers!

This is just from what I gathered from various reviews (mostly preview units sent to reviewers, not final units). 1. Some units do have light bleed between main and secondary display. That said, it is a lot less pronounced compared to V10. Only visible in pitch black environment. 2. Display is definitely cold. Overall it is not bad or anything but it's not calibrated to sRGB. Turning on "night mode" and setting it to low slightly "warms up" the display improving white balance. It still won't be as accurate as iP7, Note 5 or Lumia 950(XL). 3. This I can't really judge since everyone is hell bent on testing this phone with worst possible pair of headphones they have. I haven't seen anyone test them with 50Ohm or higher impedance headphones. And like on V10 high gain mode should only kick in with those. Even worse is people testing them with Spotify, Apple music or using 256-320kbps .mp3 files.

Is the camera glass really fragile? I am afraid of it breaking easily without adding any pressure to the phone. There were some reports of the camera glass breaking.

With this phone advertised for it's sound quality, how bad are the speakers, compared to the Axon 7?

Q1: how good is included DAC? Is there any better on smartphone market? Could you describe differences between that dac and the one in lg v10)? Of course, I mean about comparison on a good headphones (for example sennheiser momentum 2 aeg, sony mdr-1a, focal classic, etc), not on some s**tty ones. Q2: what is quality of photos in comparison to other hi-end smartphones? Q3: what is quality of GPS? Q4: what is the strength of antenna in comparison to other smartphones?

1. When and Where can We get a Back that also has Wireless Charging Capabilities without having to plug into the USB-C Port? 2. When Will there be an Extended Battery with Back Cover for this Phone? 3. When in a Poor Reception Area, How Will this Phone handle the Weak Signal? 4. Will this Phone Charge at Quick Charge 2.0 or 3.0 Speed?

How does the slow motion compare to other flagships? Example frame rates playback

1) will I be blown away after using my old tried and true G3 as my daily for the past six months? 2) how's this phone compare to the G5? Performance, multitasking, battery. 3) is LG still using their hideous emoji? If so, do you know a non-root method of changing them? 4) how slick is this and how soon am I going to want a case before this accidentally flies of my hands? 5) are the Smart World themes a joke? I hear there's only three with no indication on how to add more. 6) do lock screen shortcuts open on double tap or tap and swipe? 7) can you add auto rotation shortcut to second screen? 8) how would you rank this phone next to the Pixel and Moto Z's?

Does the phone still looks ugly from the back, in real life?
