Fresh out of the crazy labs of LG comes this year’s iteration in the V series, the LG V20. We hear all the hype currently about the IPhone 7, Samsung Note 7, Google Pixel, but what seems to be lost in the midst of the hype is the V20.

All this with a removable battery, metal unibody, expandable storage up to 256GB. It is also the first phone to run out of the box Android 7.0 Nougat.
LG has packed another first into this device as the V20 comes with 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC. more recognisable in high-end audio gear. It supports all of the major lossless music formats like FLAC, DSD, AIFF and ALAC with LG also promising to mimimise distortion and ambient noise by up to 50 per cent.
With those specs, that put’s it right up there in the mix for the title of best phone of the year. LG recently announced that the device will retail at $830USD.
