Today was probably the heaviest rain to hit California coast this year and I thought it would be a great idea to test out the microphones of latest flagship smartphone in extreme storm weather with 30+MPH wind. It seems that in this extreme weather, most smartphones have trouble, which one you think did the best?

In this review of LG V20, we will be comparing its core features against other flagships like the Pixel XL, S7 Edge, Nexus 6P, and Note 5.
First, LG V20 is a 5.7-inch phablet smartphone with 1440P IPS LCD w/ secondary screen, 2 back cameras (One F1.8 16MP and One 8MP F2.4 wide-angle), 1 front wide-angle camera (that also crops in), Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, removable back cover (made from aircraft-grade aluminum), 3200mAh removable battery, IR blaster, micro-SD card slot, and an active noise-cancellation microphone. LG V20 also comes with a quad-DAC with a more powerful amplifier that’s capable of powering headphones (that usually require amps).
In our latest HighOnAndroid SOT test, we take up the new LG V20 vs. Huawei P9.
The results? Pretty fascinating as the LG V20 got 6 hours 20 minutes while Huawei P9 finished close at 6 hours and 14 minutes.
In this comparison, we take up the Google Pixel smartphone vs. LG V20 in low-light camera comparison.
For the first test, we used 4K video recording mode for both phones on “auto” mode and the results are interesting as LG V20 outperformed the Pixel in modest to very dim situations. Although Pixel was able to display more details in complete darkness, the image was filled with noise and basically unusable.
To test out the LG V20’s DAC feature, I decided to get one of the best headphones you can buy on earth right now, the Sennheiser HD800S. I figured if LG V20 can power Sennheiser HD800S, it will probably work well with any other headphones.
The results? Simply amazing, Sennheiser HD800S is probably the best headphones I’ve ever owned (I’ve also tried the $50,000 Sennheiser Orpheus headphones at CES 2016) and highly recommend it to anyone who wants a great pair of headphones.
In this second VLOG, we test out the bokeh abilities of the LG V20’s back camera, stability using its OIS and with a Feiyu G4 Pro gimbal, and also maximize the microphone abilities using its directional mode along with wind filter.
We should have a full test of its video manual mode soon, which is probably one of the best features of LG V20.
The other day I realized that the best way to test a smartphone camera is to really try it out in real life. So, here’s my first VLOG using LG V20 camera, using the 4 different camera angles on the phone. Also, I’ve included some slow-motion footage using the slow-motion mode and also speeding up photos taken with the burst mode.
I got to play with the LG V20 for a full day and I have no doubt in my mind this maybe one of the best “phablets” of the year, especially if you are looking for a big smartphone that can do it all.
No, it’s not waterproof but it doesn’t blow up.
In my in-depth unboxing, I go through many of my favorite features about the LG V20 after using it for about a day. To sum it up, I really dig the wide-angle camera setup for both front and back camera. The LG V20 has two cameras on the back and one camera on the front that can also do wide-angle. Not everyone needs this feature but for those of you who take a lot of selfies or like to take photos in small spaces, the wide-angle is a killer feature.
