First Impressions: The LG V20 Is loud, proud, And impressive

The long awaited LG V20 is in office now. There’s a ton to go over about it, which will take the time to do, but not just yet. LG sent us over a “preview unit” of the V20 to get our first impressions, so let’s get into it (spoilers: it’s great).



So what are the highlights so far? The big one is hardware. This phone is big, but not unbearably so. It brings a 5.7-inch display with the secondary display, a massive, removable battery, and a full metal body. Another big highlight is the audio. The speaker is decent, but the headphone jack packs a high-end 32-bit DAC which sounds excellent.

So far, the V20 is impressive, and you can see more in the video above, but you’ll need to stay tuned for the full review. LG hasn’t given a firm date on when that will be, but it will likely be within the next 2-3 weeks.
