4 reasons why the LG V20 is the perfect smartphone for multimedia content creators

By: George Koroneos

With the new V20, available online and in stores from Verizon, LG is changing the way we think about the smartphone as an audio/video content creation tool. With three unique cameras, Hi-Fi audio recording, a removable metal back plate and access to Verizon LTE Advanced, the LG V20 gives you control over the way you capture photos, videos and audio, opening up a new world of mobile multimedia possibilities.

To get your creative juices flowing, here are four features that make the LG V20 smartphone a must buy for multimedia content creators:

  1. Three cameras give you full control: The V20 is leveling up audio and video with new technology that enables you to create crisp and clear content in the palm of your hand. For instance, LG Steady Record 2.0 lets you record smoother, clearer video – even when you’re on the move. In addition, the V20 has two rear cameras — a 16MP standard lens and an 8MP wide-angle camera —so you can get the bigger picture no matter what the subject. The 5MP wide-angle front camera expands your selfie experience, allowing you to get more friends in your shots.
  2. Audiophile sound playback and recording: Get an incredible listening experience with Hi-Fi Quad DAC playback. For those that don’t speak geek that means you can hear crisp, clear sound that is closer to the source. The V20 also lets you capture studio quality audio on the go with the ability to record over a separate audio track. If you are an avid concert goer and want to record your favorite artist, the V20 helps you record higher quality sound using three sensitive AOP mics for incredible Hi-Fi Recording.
  3. Sleek, durable metal design with removable battery: The LG V20 is definitely a looker. Its 5.7” quad-HD display is enveloped in a new metal back cover that can easily be removed with the push of a button, giving you access to a removable 3200mAh battery. For video content creators, that means an extended amount of recording time that can easily be bolstered with additional batteries (sold separately). On the back, the V20 uses lightweight AL6013 aluminum alloy — the same material used in airplanes — while the top and bottom contact points are composed of silicone polycarbonate (Si-PC), for added durability.
  4. Full Verizon LTE Advanced integration: The LG V20 makes full use of Verizon’s 4G LTE technology. With LTE Advanced, Verizon customers with capable devices — like the LG V20 — can experience 50 percent faster peak wireless data speeds in more than 450 cities from coast to coast. That means you can easily share all the high-definition audio and video content that you create with the V20 on your favorite social and video networks and safely back it up to the cloud.

The LG V20 is available online and in stores on Verizon. You can purchase yours for $28 per month for 24 months on Verizon’s device payment plan or $672 (retail). Also, if you buy an LG V20 on device payment you can get an LG Stylo 2 V for $1 a month ($24 retail) on device payment.
