Lately, we have heard a lot about the competitive announcement between ‘Apple’ and LG’s most expensive phone on the shelf. A precious phone, packed with high-end specs, and a stylish aluminium framework in Titan, Pink and Silver colour. As a matter of fact, LGV20 has a lot of things going for it! To begin with, V20 is getting introduced in the Indian market on 06th Dec 2016, which is technically tomorrow.
Let me share my first-hand research experience with my tech expert friend Shima. A geeky woman who loves her phones more than her diamonds. To be honest, this got me curious about her latest pick. The Gadget mission “Feliz Compra,” which means ‘Happy Shopping’ in Spanish is always initiated by a pre-pep. As intrigued as we were, we explored almost all the reviews online which in return offered a wider clarity. Then, she checked with her friends who had recently bought the phone in the US. Here’s what we gathered!
LG’s Flagship Smartphone – LG-V20 (Pricing and Features)
In the event that the phone is priced at 55k, I think it’s important to highlight LG-V20’s most promising features. LGV-20 offers an overflowing range of high-end specifications, albeit adding a few tricks of its own this time. Besides, metalled bodied smartphones look pretty attractive and never get out of fashion. The seamless aluminium framework supports the sized LCD capacitive touchscreen. It also reminds me of Apple’s metallic frame.
The V20 features Hi-Fi Quad DAC, wide angle cameras both front and back, HD audio recorder, manual controls for video, and Android 7.0 Nougat. In addition, the phone runs on a Snapdragon 820, with 4GB of RAM, and 64GB expandable storage. Not to mention, LG V20 also comes with a 3200mAh battery. V20 also sports a secondary screen, that sits on top of its regular display for shortcut icons. To enhance the readability for its audience, LG has strategically increased its contrast and brightness this time around. The screen is ever active in the background and displays your signature, favourite/recent apps, contacts and notifications.
LGV20 Enhanced Audio and Removable Battery
Most of us are plugged to music through our phones, as we are on the go. For the same reason, LG has uniquely emphasised on the V20’s audio. The phone is equipped with 3 mics and 4 digital-to-analog converters. The LG V20’s battery is both expandable and removable, which means you can easily swap in a new reserve. It also comes handy, when you are planning to resell the device. Above all, Expandable storage lets you record and save more photos and videos, without feeling restricted. The LGV20 is powered by Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor and is paired with 4GB of RAM on the 64GB internal storage.
The smartphone presents a 16 MP + 8 MP dual camera on the back, along with a 5 MP selfie camera for selfie lovers. The connectivity options comprise of the fingerprint sensor, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, 4G LTE support, and USB support. LGV-20 comes with an advanced image stabilisation technology, exclusively from Qualcomm, to make it easier to click clear pictures even with an unsteady hand.
All in all, I have told you everything you need to know. Of course, the phone is available across retail outlets, and exclusively on Amazon starting December 6th, 2016. If you have been contemplating a purchase, I guess LG V20 is up for grabs just at the right time. Shima is considering an upgrade from Samsung, and this is her ideal choice. It’s pretty close to Apple iPhone that I use, yet incomparable in its own sweet way.
