The LG V20 has some pretty big shoes to fill. The V10 which came before it was one of our favorite cameras of last year, mostly for the insane amount of control it offered. This new LG phablet also arrives at a time when more companies are experimenting with dual camera systems, like the zoom on the iPhone 7 Plus, or the light manipulation of the Leica inspired Huawei P9.
New for this year, the V20 adopts the wide angle shooter found on the LG G5, though with a different aspect ratio for the sensor. LG boast of a new image stabilization system and improved microphones to capture louder audio. Also, new controls have been added to the camera app like focus peaking when using manual focus, and improved audio controls with better visual feedback for the user.
On paper this phone sounds like a production monster, but now it’s time to see how it actually performs.
