V20 is the latest most expensive smartphone of the South Korean Multinational LG. Earlier this year, LG launched its high-end “LG V20” for the International market with the price tag of Rs. 54, 999. It was the first smartphone to run on Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box. Because of featuring the newest Operating System of Google, the phone grabbed many eyeballs internationally. Unfortunately, the V20’s India launch was excluded at the time of its international debut. But now, finally, on Tuesday, the company finally introduced the LG V20 for the Indian market. From Tuesday, the retailing of LG V20 went live at local retailers and Amazon.
Here is a first-hand impression of LG V20 which every shopper should consider before paying hefty cash for it.
At the point when the LG V20 was launched back in September, it had fortunate being the first smartphone to ship with Android 7.0 Nougat. It got the latest OS of Google even before the Nexus and Pixel models start getting it. But now, India has many models running on Android 7.0 Nougat. Moreover, some phones of Motorola and Nexus also started getting updates for 7.1.1 Nougat. So ruining your account just for Nougat OS seems to be really illogical.
LG V20 may be the lead centrepiece gadget of the South Korean Company, but its extreme price range of Rs 54,999 truly has no USP. Its high price tag might lead you to consider some circumstances regarding its high-end specs and functionalities, but while deeply considering, LG V20 literally lacks the innovation or advancements for a shopper looking to purchase a costly Android smartphone.
Tagged with Rs. 54,999, LG V20 is a really expensive one. If you follow the trend of Indian market thoroughly, you will surely find the demands for such expensive phones to be pretty low. Some of the most iconic brands like Samsung and Apple only have managed to crack sales with such higher price. Currently, the market is already being dominated by the upper price range of smartphones like Apple iPhone 7, Google Pixel and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. And a new addition to this expensive line-up is likely to face tough competition.
Despite LG providing the expensive B&O headphones of worth Rs 18,000 for free of cost with its V20 model, but this is not likely to sweeten the deal much. But more than this, shoppers who can afford this amount of money will undoubtedly look for a more flaunting brand. As LG hasn’t yet gained the same level of respect the brands like Apple, Google or even Samsung have, the chances are many wouldn’t care for cracking such a high-priced deal.
Though LG has integrated its V20 with some ultra-modern features like a massive 5.7 inches IPS LCD screen (1440 x 2560 pixels), Android OS, v7.0 (Nougat), Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 Processor, 4GB RAM and 32/64 GB ROM, Fingerprint scanner, 3200 mAh battery, dual 16-mp rear camera and 5-mp selfie snapper, but the high price tag is likely to drop the demand of the phone in Indian market especially.
