LG V20 review

 
4.0
Verdict: Update : Sadly, the LG V20 never made its way to regions outside of the US. But there's finally a bit of good news if you were wanting to get your hands on one, or at least something like it. LG is releasing the LG Q8 in European regions. It's a smaller, water-resistant version of the V20.

4.5
Pros: Audio quality, B&O earphones, vibrant screen, overall performance, manual camera controls, battery
Cons: Quite big in size, missing details in wide-angle snaps
Verdict: For the price, no doubt LG is offering a phone bundled with loads of features, specially B&O Play earphones, Hi-Fi Video Recording and HD Audio recorder, with dual lens in the rear.

Pros: Good Display, Great Performance, Superb Camera, Decent Battery life, Loud Speaker output, Excellent Audio recording capabilities, Fast charging
Cons: Massive in size, Minute software glitches, Fingerprint sensor with embedded power button have issues, Customary form factor, Second screen is not very useful
Verdict: LG announced its latest Flagship in the month of November last year. The launch was one of the best of all times, announcing the smartphone in a roofless top of a multi-storey hotel, was awesome. However, we're not here to talk about launch. What we have here with us is LG V20 for review.

LG V20 review: Feature rich smartphone, but cannot beat most flagships in the market

 
3.5
Verdict: LG is slowly losing its mark in the smartphone market. Not only did the G5 have poor sales, their budget range is no match for its Chinese rivals. Even the Nexus branding was axed by Google this year, something with which LG did well in the past years.

Time-saver edition

Verdict: The LG V20 is the epitome of LG's technology and the embodiment of a no-comprise phone. It has two screens, two cameras, four high-quality digital-to-analog converters, an MIL-STD-compliant shock-resistant all-metal body with the trademark LG removable battery and it even came out with the latest...

Verdict: The smartphone line-up LG presented us with this year has been uninspiring. Sure, the modular design of the G5 was interesting but I felt that too much sway was put on the additional gadgets that came with the handset.

LG V20

 
3.7
Pros: Great audio performance, Removable back and battery, Fast
Cons: Camera is only satisfactory, Battery life could have been better, Metal build doesn't feel as premium as it should
Verdict: The LG V20 is a phone for the audiophiles, or for those who want a removable back and battery. However, if those aren't your priorities, then the Google Pixel/Pixel XL or iPhone 7 Plus far surpass the V20, and are better choices.

Verdict: Earlier this year, LG unveiled its V20 smartphone, and as it was the first model anywhere to ship with Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the box, it gained attention worldwide. On Monday, the company finally launched the V20 in India.

LG V20: Australian Review

Verdict: The LG V20 is a very late entrant into this year's Android phone boxing match, but for exactly that reason it's arriving to the fight fresh and with a whole set of new tricks up its sleeve. Is this - very quietly, now - the best Android phone of 2016?

LG V20 review: the definitive live gig smartphone?

 
3.8
Verdict: The LG V20 offers a great but not excellent camera experience (in large part due to the extensive settings), rich audio playback and super-speedy performance. But those hoping to get some fantastic concert recordings will need to do just that – hope.

Pros: Great Build Quality, Good Screen, Brilliant Audio Quality, High Quality Dual Camera Setup, Dual FOV Front Facing Cameras, Extensive Manual Mode for Camera (Photo and Video
Cons: Excessive Noise Reduction on Photos in Auto Mode, User Interface needs a Re-haul, Secondary Screen Could've been Placed Better
Verdict: The LG V series is to the G series what the Galaxy Note series is to the Galaxy S series. However instead of being more of an upgrade or an updated version of the G series, the V series phones have an entirely different personality to themselves.

LG V20 Review

Pros: Great performance, Impressive camera quality, Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, Great display quality, Useful secondary display, Removable battery, Impressive audio quality
Cons: Uninspiring design, Quite expensive
Verdict: LG continues to experiment with its flagship handset and while we've already seen how they're leaning towards as evidenced by the LG G5, their phablet counterpart is a little more subdued. The V series is LG's super-sized ( phablet ) flagship smartphone and the V20 is the second-generation handset.

Verdict: 2016 is a very Pixelly year. For any other manufacturer to be releasing a new phone at the end of the year, they're going to find it very difficult, especially with the large marketing push Google are doing this year.

LG V20 review: the best smartphone for audiophiles

 
4.0
Pros: Great perfomance, Android Nougat, Removable battery, 32-bit Quad DAC chip, Wide angle camera
Cons: No wireless charging, Not waterproof, Camera underperforms in low light, Not available in UK or Europe
Verdict: The LG V20 isn't the perfect smartphone. Neither is it the prettiest nor the longest lasting. It has several shortcomings most notably, it lacks Snapdragon 821, it's not waterproof, it isn't as polished as its competition and it has an IPS rather than an AMOLED screen.

4.1
Pros: Premium performance, Excellent audio quality, Bright, attractive screen, One of the few phones to come with Nougat, Removable battery
Cons: Dual-camera system could be better, Second screen isn't that useful, Not water resistant, Tough to use with one hand, Expensive on certain carriers
Verdict: Don't let its dull looks fool you: Beyond the V20's flagship-level power and slightly tweaked version of Android Nougat is a device tailor-made for creatives. The V20 is an excellent media player (even with lossless files) and doubles as an impressive audio recorder.

LG V20 review: The Android phone for hardcore enthusiasts

Cons: Average benchmarks, Battery life could be better, Niche features

Review: LG V20

 
3.5
Pros: Monster specs should appeal to power users. Audio features (both listening and recording) are a major step up. The second display could be a gimmick, but it's actually useful
Cons: The design lacks some polish, especially for the price. Verizon bloatware and LG skin are crummy. It's not waterproof. The fingerprint reader as power button drove me bananas
Verdict: With the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 going up in smoke , there's a little more room for other jumbo phones to get some attention. The LG V20 is one of those mammoths, a 5.7-inch display with top-line internals and a handful of distinguishing features.

LG V20 Review: Stealing the Note 7's spotlight

 
4.0
Pros: Display is color accurate, sharp, and bright, Secondary display is surprisingly helpful, Two camera lenses, standard angle, and wide-angle, Replaceable battery, Easy access to innards
Cons: Battery life a day or less, Concerns about fragility of camera array glass, Pricing quite high
Verdict: With the galaxy note 7 quite literally self-destructing and throwing Samsung's holiday plans into disarray, LG finds itself with an unexpected opportunity with the v20. Today we're aiming to provide a review helpful to both former Galaxy Note users and potential users curious about the ins and outs...

Pros: -Fantastic build -Removable back/battery -MicroSD expansion -Fast performance -Android 7.0 Nougat -Dual rear cameras -QUAD DAC -MIL-STD 810G durability
Cons: -LG's UI feels unpolished -Camera is not strong in low light -Light bleed from second screen
Verdict: So, there you have it for this in-depth look at the LG V20! The V20 may share some similarities with the G5, like a metal build and a dual camera setup on the back, but the former does offer and feature a whole lot more.

LG V20 Review: A Big-Screen Beast for Content Creators

 
4.0
Pros: Dual rear cameras offer different angles, Great manual controls for photo/video, Handy, always-on second screen, High-gain microphones, Removable battery
Cons: Expensive, No waterproofing, So-so battery life
Verdict: The LG V20 is a bit of a strange beast. It looks like an enlarged LG G5 and skips most of the design features that made last year's V10 unique. Its battery life is pretty average, and with a price tag starting at around $750 (depending on which carrier you choose), it's not cheap, either.

Review: LG's V20 is a different kind of phone -- in a good way

Pros: Fine performance; exceptional sound quality; extremely detailed control of audio and video; replaceable battery; innovative UI
Cons: Fit and finish not as sleek as competitors; expensive; not water resistant; UI may not be to everyone's taste
Verdict: The LG V20 is, you may have gathered, a lot of phone, with some risky design options: a replaceable battery with the physical disadvantages that entails; an uncommon and unorthodox UI; unusually detailed and successful audio-video features.

Verdict: Android 7, aka , has been rolling out primarily to Google's Nexus and new Pixel phones, as well as a few Motorola handsets, but a new Nougat contender has entered the fray, hot off the press from . The LG V20 is the follow-on to last year's and a current follow-up to the modular recently.

A practical review of the LGV 20

 
5.0
Verdict: I am an engineer that utilizes this phone for data collection (pictures, OCR text, etc.) and travel back and forth to a lot of remote places in the United States and take occasional overseas trips for work. My prior phone was my daughters older Samsung Note 4, which I received as a "hand me down".

Love the phone

Verdict: Love the phone, The phone is just amazing. The phone is super quick, good camera and you gotta love the hi-fi quad DAC in it. The only reason why I can't give it five star is that it came with the european charger.

Almost, but not quite, a 5-star phone

 
5.0
Pros: Features/Settings
Verdict: I got this about a two months ago, when the battery on my HTC M9 died. I REALLY like the ability to switch out batteries, plus the second screen gives me notifications without using much battery life when the screen is off. The camera is great. And the new price drop makes it a excellent value.

Love the LG V20 (except the selfie cam).

 
5.0
Verdict: I bought this phone in January and the only complaint I have is the 5 megapixel selfie cam. It's a wide angle camera, but I think the quality is pretty poor - very grainy and blurry. The LG G5 has an 8 megapixel selfie cam and it takes significantly better quality selfies - especially in low light.

Verdict: After having an LG phone prior to the v20 I was sorely disappointed with this model. The phone often freezes up which requires a restart and the camera is definitely of poorer quality with pictures having a grainy affect when zooming in.

Depends What You Want In A Phone; But Much Better Than The Reviews

 
4.5
Pros: Look and Feel, Second Screen, Removable Battery, SD Card Slot, Nougat
Cons: Mediocre Battery Life (So Buy A Second Battery And Keep It Charged Just In Case
Verdict: Really enjoying the phone so far. Replaced The Launcher With Nova Prime as a matter of course. Camera does everything I would want it to and more. Lack of waterproofing not an issue for me. It definitely was a tad larger than I would have liked but you quickly get used to that. Charges fast.

Amazing

 
5.0
Verdict: This might be the best phone I've every owned, and I don't even usually like LG phones. The dual cameras are gorgeous and it's easy to switch between the standard and wide angle lenses. With 64 gigs of space I don't even need an SD card.

Interesting design

 
3.0
Pros: -Durable body, -Snappy hardware, -Excellent camera, -Great speakers, -Innovative "secondary" display, -REMOVABLE BATTERY AND EXPANDABLE STORAGE, -IR blaster
Cons: -No waterproofing, -Pricy on NCIX, -Tons of bloatware and poor software skin design, -No wireless charging, -Poor battery life, -Although having an innovative secondary display, the primary display isnt that great given its price point
Verdict: Interesting design but overall, imo, not a great execution. Basic features such as better battery life, waterproofing and clean OS are lacking in a high-end smartphone that should have these areas covered.
