LG V20 vs LG V10 vs LG G5: specs comparison

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!
