With two screens, three microphones and a fully removable battery, the LG V20 is not your ordinary premium smartphone.
There's a lot more choice in the premium smartphone space these days than there used to be. No longer are you limited to siding with Apple or Samsung in order to enjoy the latest and greatest mobile technology; now you have companies like Sony, Huawei and LG producing handsets every bit as capable as the latest iPhone. On the one hand, this has led to more competitive pricing and a greater variety of new features, but it has also made narrowing down your purchasing decision significantly trickier. With so many options available, how can you tell whether a particular handset is right for you?
To help with this, we've put together a guide on one of LG's more recent additions to the premium smartphone market: the LG V20. As one of the first phones powered by Android 7.0 to hit Aussie shores, the V20 is not exactly top-of-the-line compared to the latest mobile handsets, but it's still a powerful device with plenty to offer those wanting a phone fit to handle anything they throw at it.
- A large screen, slim body and metal frame make the LG V20 one attractive smartphone
- Hi-Fi audio capabilities are sure to appeal to music lovers
- Dual-sensor rear camera with wide-angle lens is primed for outdoor photography
- Manual camera mode provides extra options for professional photographers
- Similar specs to the impressive LG G5
- Should be sufficient for general use as well as heavier tasks like mobile gaming
- Average battery capacity for a phone this size, but still sufficient for all-day usage
- LG remains one of the only big brands including removable batteries in its flagship handsets
Pricing and availability
Two screens means twice the fun
From its handy secondary screen to its capable dual-lens camera, the LG V20 is packed to the bezels with premium style and functionality.
- The LG V20 is currently available from retailers like Catch and MobileCiti for around $650.
