LG V20: here are all the new features of the metal-clad beast

LG has just announced its new top-shelf phablet for 2016 — the V20 — and it looks like it's packing heat! Continuing the tradition set by its predecessor, the LG V10, the new handset carries the same hardware as the company's flagship G5 smartphone, adding even more bells and whistles to the mix.

Last year's V10 was clearly aimed at the media-oriented folk — three directional microphones, a very elaborate manual video mode, a high-quality audio DAC, a media control panel for its secondary display, which gave users control over their music no matter what they are doing on screen, and a gargantuan 5.7-inch display to enjoy their content on. The V20 follows in line, but adds more features and improvements, in line with LG's new phone design philosophy and Play More attitude. Let's check them out!

This is not modular, go see the G5 for that.

Oops, I got side tracked and missed that entire part about it. Oh well. I hope it catches on.

LG and HTC produce great devices, but the medias kill them.

LG- markets flagships with removable battery...design team puts a much smaller battery than other flagships (sealed ones) to force users to make use of this feature and switch battery within a single day. Lol

Wait, it has a 5.7" display. Why is it so big. It's as big as Samsung's 6" phones. Terrible design. Looks like the old HTC with boom speakers, but without the speakers. The back looks like ET's eyes. No wonder the can't compete in their own home country. I think Sammie should have went duel camera and saved Iris Scanner for the next S and Note.
