Apart from the product itself, we do not know if a lot of sense to present something like the day before Apple does , we know that all the media focus will be placed on new iPhones, and the range of possible comparisons always will finish running in the background. LG things. If you want to know more detail on the phone, we have a special item for it, trying specification by specification. I summarize this is a great phone with 5.7-inch screen QHD resolution. In the latest hardware leads not to appear unless a Note 7 Now I’ll tell you what is my first impression
Catching some LG G5, another little V10
The modularity of the G5 has not been well received so all we had heard rumors about his transfer to V20, disappeared with logic in the presentation of the new phone. The idea has brought more problems than advantages, especially in what has to do with consistency and construction.
Of course, aluminum is very present on the phone, and this does not mean that it can not open, in fact, the rear lid remains of that material and lets us access the removable battery and microSD slot memories (there is a button to open the lid). In the market is strange this type of design, but there is LG to make it different again.
There is something they liked the G5 and want to keep, which are its design lines and simpler textures , with the button panel back. The LG V10 was a clearly more striking phone and ornate textures, also heavier and larger than the V20, so in this sense, it seems a positive renewal. LG ensures that it remains just as strong in their trials.
A larger battery
The battery has improved in size without having to create a larger phone: 3.000mAh we move from V10 to LG 3.200mAh the new model. It is a normal amount of phones of its size. It is positive progress, but I think they should have used a phone and to disassociate with a large capacity , certainly had claimed the attention of much of the public to demand that, without greatly changing its appearance.
If you have a phone that is a pump dedicated to audio technology, capable of generating improved sound quality as a mobile source, do not neglect the speaker. I’m not saying it’s bad, that we must try, but we can anticipate that the chosen configuration is that of a mono speaker . To meet a great set, him had come well a pair of front speakers as we have seen in other phones, competitors, HTC or Sony.
No space for modules
It is not the philosophy of the V series; that ‘s what the G, but I do not deny that there are interesting ideas to develop modules. In the G5 the proposal has been pretty rank, have not gone new “friends” , which indicates that the public interest is not in that.
It is not waterproof
Not that this is the specification that all seek, but positions to seek excellence or distinction, here very few play: mainly Sony and Samsung. In this does not change with respect to V10, but it does tell us that their new aluminum construction keeps the resistance.
If no pointer or pencil, does not compete directly with a Note, I say some . Not without reason, as each generation passes the S Pen is more capable and allows the differentiation factor between phablets. LG is fair to say that maintains some phones pointer, but without a very special technology in them.
Things I love about the LG V20
The latest from Android
The phones are offered for sale, and we have to be thinking if they come with the latest software, it is worrying. If it comes with Android and I’m going to spend a lot of money, that is with the most modern, please. This is the promise of LG, who says he’ll buy with ” Nougat ” even before those phones Pixel .
It is not trivial, bringing the latest software version implies better optimizations, more security, news, redesigns, and functionality. In the case of LG it seems that it is well covered by his cloak, applications, and services, which are not usually very heavy, so we will not complain about it.
In LG they have a clear thing, all high-end phones have to have a way to change the battery. So we showed with the LG G5 and re-prioritize in this with the V20. I’ll explain a few lines above; it is accessed by removing the back cover. The reason they give us LG is that there are people who demand the ability to carry multiple batteries and change them as video professionals who already use high – end devices to record content. Record 4K consume batteries at breakneck speed, better change to get to load, fast loading by many to have.
Sure, everyone likes his music is heard well, have good headphones and streaming services on the phone, but LG that takes it for granted and aims to audiophiles . Those that differentiate the quality to a higher level or need an audio source with these characteristics. To put this new circuitry within the V20 as a ‘Quad DAC “32 – bit chip – ESS ES9218 Sabre -. The hardware will work capitalize – distortion and improve dynamic range – for the audio worthwhile in headphones and external sound system with high quality, also in wireless systems.
We expect a great camera
A little to repeat what has been achieved with the V10, everything will be fine. The phone had a camera, and it seems that this is a priority for this young family of high – end phones. For the occasion used a double – camera with wide angle and to get more precise focus. We have the main sensor of 16 megapixels with 75 degrees view (f / 1.8), and an 8-megapixel opening angle up to 135 degrees (f / 2.4). The front CAMERA is 5 megapixels with up to 120 degrees in the wide mode (f / 1.9).
Inside, a lot of new technology to try: tell us they have introduced a new stabilization system developed by Qualcomm, pulling gyroscope. There are also improvements distortions “rolling shutter”, and a hybrid laser – assisted approach is presented.
