Description

The LG V20 isn't just another smartphone. It is a multimedia powerhouse aimed at Android enthusiasts and content creators. As such, it comes with high-end audio reproduction and recording capabilities. The duet of main cameras we knew from the LG G5 is present here as well - one camera shoots high-res regular photos, while the other sports a wide-angle lens for a greater field of view. And the top-notch hardware tucked inside the hood makes this phone an ideal proposisiton to power users, with plenty of processing might to offer. A nice addition to the whole package is the secondary always-on display situated at the front. It displays shortcuts to frequently used functions, and notifications can be shown even when the main display isn't lit. While there's no modular functionality here, the LG V20 offers a removable battery - a rarity among metal-made handsets.
