LG V20 @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Feb 25 2017 | 4:42P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are only a few phones that I get really excited about every year. The LG V20 is one of those phones, the ultra-premium feature list with things like a built-in headphone DAC are always interesting. This is also one of only a few phones on the premium phone market that has a removable battery and expandable memory. Those features and the aluminum body all help it stand out in a crowded market, but today I'm going to see what else the V20 has going for it and find out just where it stands for performance.
