The LG flagship is famous for making phones with good features. After much wait and anticipation, the LG V20 was launched in September 2016. The phone was a pioneer in using the Android 7 Nougat.

The user experience of the phone was overall good. Below is a review of the salient features of the device:

Screen & Display. On the forefront, the size of LG V20 was 6.28 x 3.07 x 0.30 inches. It also has a 0.5-inch secondary screen across the top. The screen is protected with Gorilla Glass 4. The weight of the phone is around 6.14 oz (174 g.) It has a beautiful 5.7 inch IPS LCD screen which offers a display of 2560 x 1440 (Quad HD) resolution. The phone has a body made of aircraft aluminum and polycarbonate, reported Financial Post.

Storage & Battery. A look inside the phone reveals that it has a very appealing 4 GB RAM with 64 GB internal memory. The phone also supports Quick Charge 3.0. The microSD slot allows the user to increase the memory up by another 2 TB.

Camera. The phone also has a 5 MP front camera has a 120-degree lens. It also has two rear cameras - 16 MP and 8 MP with a span of 135 degrees.

Amazing Audio Recording. The LG V20 supports great audio recording with the help of the three microphones. The phone also has a Steady Record 2 image stabilization technology. This helps to keep the motion of the object really smooth by looking into the movements in real time, reported Engadget.

On the flipside, LG is notorious for not giving in monthly updates on Android security. This might make the device vulnerable and prone to attacks. Speaking about vulnerability, the phone is not waterproof too. Also, even if the phone was released way back in September 2016, it was not easily available in the market until about November 2016.

In short, the LG V20 has many features to make it a likable phone. Those who are looking for a device that has very good multimedia tools can grab the phone immediately.
