LG V20 vs LG V10: Specifications, features, price, everything compared

LG just released its next offering from the V series called the V20. It sports a 5.7-inch screen just like the V10, with an AMOLED display. It also packs a Snapdragon 820 processor (very expected and 4GB RAM. In some areas it is an advancement from its predecessor and in others, it sticks to the general goodness of offerings. Here’s the specifications comparison of the two:

The phone has a removable 3200mAh battery and has slots (not tray) for SIM and memory cards. Uncannily, the V20 can support storage up to 2TB. An unnecessary feature as most would agree.

As has been stated clearly by the company, they have decided to put a pause to their modular phones program. This is a pleasant move away, as the G5 turned out to be a colossal disaster.

Some extravagant features like the size and expandable memory among others are quite unnecessary. As was proven by the failure of the G5 that users only want something that is easy to hold, smooth to use and easy to slip into the pocket for now. Regardless, this appears to be a decent offering, and LG seems to be somewhat back on track.
