New LG V20 promo video shows how the Signature Wallpaper feature works
The LG V20 is almost here. It's launching in South Korea (LG's home country) this week, and should be available to pre-order in the US starting October 2. Until you get the chance to try the new handset for yourself, you may want to check out one of its new features: Signature Wallpaper.

We're not sure we'd include Signature Wallpaper on a list of features to be truly excited about, but LG thinks it's important enough to have its own promo video, which you can watch below.

A Signature Wallpaper is a lock screen wallpaper that includes the first character of your signature on V20's secondary display. Just like on the LG V10, you can set a signature for the ticker screen of the V20 - basically, this signature is a text of your own choice that shows up when the screen is off. Not terribly useful, but we guess it's still nice to have. When you set up a Signature Wallpaper, you can choose various backgrounds for it to make it look the way you want. All in all, this is a quick way to personalize your V20.

The LG V20 will be available in the US unlocked, as well as via all major carriers. The handset seems to be a worthy successor to last year's V10, and you can find out more about it from our LG V20 preview.

With the V20, I think the age of LG has startedbecause of the issues with note 7 and the lackluster sales of iPhone 7.. The phone undoubtedly ticks all boxes according to available reviews. I personally was looking for powerful speakers on a phone for the last half decade, which I could get in certain models but then it lacked in some other features. This phone has evolved into a good package and I think LG's time under the spotlight has arrived.

It's arriving too damn late. LG is done in the phone business. They should've release the freaking phone already.

It ticks all the right boxes? 1. Useless top screen that takes precious space. Yes its useless as useless is the edge screen features on S7 edge. 2. Ugly as f**k, seriously, nowadays phone is considered a fashion statement for a lot of people, hens s**tty beats headphones sell like crazy cause they are cool looking. 3. Its coming out almost 3 months after its announced, any hype and hope it had will be forgotten. By then 7 plus will be selling like hot cakes, note 7 will be back everywhere and not to mention google pixel XL will be out. 4. Specs alone arent enough to make a phone sell. The above points actually matter more for most of people.

After hearing B&O speakers on newest HP laptop, which sound awful (compared to my Vaio laptop) I really dont care about V20 anymore.

B&O speakers on toshiba laptop also awful, too much cheesy treble... any smartphone speaker sounds much better

GSMArena has given a good review for it's speakers. I think it should be fine. You can see the 2nd last comment under 'key test findings' -
