A few years ago, LG began becoming known for having smartphones with some incredible battery life. With the LG G2, many users were raving about the battery life that the device boasted, but that all changed with the LG G3, G4 and G5. Part of that was the fact that they were keeping the same size battery with a display that used more pixels and a processor that was more powerful (with the exception of the LG G5 which had a smaller 2800mAh battery inside). Now LG has finally gotten past that 3000mAh threshold for their batteries, and has a 3200mAh battery in the LG V20.
This 3200mAh battery should last you all day in the LG V20, but even if it doesn’t, that’s not a big deal. The reason for that is because it has Quick Charge 3.0. With the LG G5, and a Quick Charge 3.0 charger, you can charge the phone in about an hour. So you should see pretty much the same times with the LG V20, even with the slightly larger battery. This means you are able to quickly top off your LG V20 before heading out for the evening, or in between flights when you’re traveling. Quick Charge 3.0 is a pretty amazing feature, and it’s something that’s beginning to become more popular with flagship smartphones. As devices like the LG G5, HTC 10, and the Moto Z all feature the technology.
When it comes to removable batteries, many manufacturers have moved away from it. Citing that it breaks the design that they have for the smartphone, and it also makes the device a bit thicker. However, LG has kept a removable battery in the LG G5 and now the LG V20. Even with the switch from plastic to aluminum. You can pop off the back cover of the LG V20 and have access to the micro SD card slot, SIM card slot and the 3200mAh battery. This means that you could pop in a new battery and be on your way, without needing to stop by an outlet and plug in your phone for a few minutes. LG is basically offering the best of both worlds with Quick Charge 3.0 and a removable battery here in the LG V20.
