LG V20 vs LG G5 quick comparison: The V20 doesn’t need any ‘Friends’ (Video)
Flying solo to a market in desperate need of a non-exploding hero device may have been the right call for LG after the colossal G5 and Friends flop, with the V20 at least seemingly building on V10’s undeniable strengths while keeping gimmicks to a minimum.

But the LG V20 undoubtedly improves on G5’s dubious primer paint-including construction with a legit metal back, not requiring costly accessories to deliver premium audio through a standard headphone jack.
