Summary of advantages

LG V20:

  • Bigger display
  • Additional secondary screen
  • More spacious internal storage
  • Larger battery
  • Higher quality Hi-Fi DAC audio
  • Hi-Fi microphone
  • Latest Android 7.0 Nougat

LG G5

  • More compact
  • Modular friends
  • Higher pixel count for front camera

Basically, the LG V20 is more of an upgrade from the LG G5 rather than its direct predecessor, the V10. If weren’t for the lack of modularity with the G5’s so-called “friends”, the V20 can beat the G5 in all aspect.

Specs-wise, everything the G5 has is loaded to the V20, plus the features on the V10. You get a secondary display for shortcuts and notifications above the already large 5.7-inch display. The V20 is also powered by the Snapdragon 820 which is a flagship chipset. With an upgraded storage of 64GB, the LG V20 is considerably LG’s new flagship. Top that with the latest Android 7.0 Nougat and we’re already sold.

The LG G5’s only advantage so far is its modular design. You can add a camera module and what not to essentially upgrade it further. Design-wise, the G5 also gets a point but that can subjective.

    Good thing they did not copy the fugly design and modularity crap of G5. With Note 7 massive battery issue, V20 may have a chance to be successful.

    Good specs, but not going back to LG, though, due to bad experience with their G4 mobo issue (2 times in a row FTW)

      out of warranty? first time i heard an LG G4 had mobo issue. i think a friend experienced mobo failure on his samsung galaxy grand (?) so he bought a replacement j2016 just before the 2000php price drop. :)

    No it is still within warranty! My G4 will turn to 1 year old by November pa. I have a mid range phone Samsung J5 2016 and it is working better than my G4. #neveragain #trustissues
