It also has the Micro-SD card slot that's expandable to 2-TB (2,000-GB). The LG V20 is the first and only smartphone with a 32-bit Quad DAC Audio, and the first smartphone to ship with Android nougat 7. If I was going to complain about the LG V20, it would be that it's not water or dust resistant.

LG put the back cover removal button on the phone in order for the user to quickly swap out batteries. The LG V10 now has a 6000 maH battery, so I assume LG will do the same thing with the V20. I'm not real sure why LG didn't just release the V20 with the 6000 maH battery. Maybe they test the phone with the higher capacity battery for an extended amount of time to ensure it won't overheat or explode like the Samsung Note 7's have been doing.
Poor battery has destroyed this otherwise great company,
During 2014, i was arguing that LG was making some of the best flagships on the market (LG G2, G3 AND G4 were all great, unique looking and powerhouse phones for their time) and then 2015/2016 came and they just decided to flood the market with the V10, G5 and those cheap K series phones, all with very poor battery compared to the competition.
Samsung on the other hand, understood that more than anything people want long last battery, and they've upped all their devices in 2016. Whereas LG seems to go backwards - none of the phones released in the las 2 years scored over 65h endurance rating here on GSM...whereas Samsung's phones, whether it's J, A or S series tend to score around 90-100.
That's a massive difference and no matter how much innovation and unique features this company brings to the table, it doesn't really matter that much if the phones can barely get through a day.
That's my 2 cents. I'm still hoping they rectify this with the LG G6 and i might reconsider going back to LG. Until then i'll stick with my s7 edge which is still the best phone i've used so far...

Viktor, 02 Oct 2016Again bad battery.. lg never have good batteryWith everything in the media recently about the Other Guys' Batteries I believe that if the V20's battery merely doesn't ignite it will be a success; just it not catching fire will herald a triumph for The Consumer. And, the battery is replaceable! Instant power!

The lg v20 is better than v10? And whi did you not made the lg v20 look like the v10 CAUSE ITS BEAUTIFUL!
Georgio, 30 Sep 2016 I had the note 7 for a month till today ; I don't want that phone anymore...I've asked for a ... moreMy New Note7 is actually a fine performer and very stable; I'm very grateful for this too (absent any developments which sees the New Note7s recalled). I usually keep two smartphones for work and I will be getting a V20 since I appreciate my (still) powerful but quirky V10. Good luck when you get your V20; I believe that it'll take a lot of folks by surprise.
Destined to be a sleeper-hit amidst the turmoil surrounding other recent flagship releases. Pre-order while you can!
Anonymous, 28 Sep 2016What is the big deal ? Please look at LG Optimus GJ which released years ago.I think it looks like my old lg p920. I may buy one to update from my lg g3.
For the next lg x phones, one should have an always on display, one should have wireless charging support, one should have a 4k display, one should have a USB type c port, and one should come with the latest snapdragon 821 chip. Or combine them all to create a beast flagship:).
