LG has ben known for making phones with different technologies. We saw that in the G5 with all that modular thing going on :p and then the V10 with the secondary display. LG V10 was something I really liked, and the secondary display made sense. Now LG has launched the LG V20. A phone with the same DNA found in the V10 but with some improvements. Today I would be unboxing the phone and will let you know what I feel about it.

LG V20 Initial impressions
LG V20 is tall and huge with 5.7 2K display though handling it wasn’t so different from a 5.5″ phone due to its smaller chin and bezels on the sides.
The UI seems smooth and attractive though I didn’t like having a dual sim switch on the side of the on-screen buttons. There would be an option to turn it off which I am yet to find. In the short time, I had the phone with me, I couldn’t check the performance, but it comes with a Snapdragon 820 and 4GB of RAM so you can expect a flagship like performance from it.
LG V20 comes with dual camera; one is a wide angle lens(29mm) while other one is standard 8MP lens(12mm). It also comes with laser autofocus as well as OIS. here are some camera samples
That was all for the unboxing and initial impressions. Do let us know what you think about the LG V20 in the comment section below!
