LG V20: Capture concerts with crisp audioIn addition to its premium hardware, removable battery and expandable memory, the LG V20 can record great audio.
[Music] The V20 is LG's most premium phone and features a five point seven inch display and a polished aluminum design. Unique in a few ways. One it has expandable memory and a removable battery. Which you access by pushing this button on the side. While this isn't novel technology, either features are increasingly rare in high end phones. And the Z20 has both. During our lab test for continuous video playback on airplane mode, the battery also clocked in an average of 12.5 hours. This is a decent, though not overly impressive time. But again, you do have the option of swapping the battery out for a fully charged one. [NOISE] The V20 has three cameras. There are two shooters on the back. A standard 16 megapixel camera and an eight megapixel wide angle one. So you can set more context in each frame. You can capture wide angle images on the front facing five megapixel camera too. So the device has a narrow screen at the top of its regular display. Here you can add shortcuts access to your favorite apps and contacts and add a little signature. LG took a big emphasis on audio too, along with multiple mics and digital to analog converters. You'll get advanced audio settings and an app for HD audio recording. What I tested out, recording sounded a lot fuller and richer that what you'll typically hear For more info about the LGB20, check out our full review at cnet.com [MUSIC]
