LG V20 Malaysia

The LG V20 is probably the last flagship smartphone that comes with a removable battery. Launched in September last year, it was the first smartphone to come preloaded with Android Nougat and it went on sale in Malaysia just 5 months ago with the retail price of RM1,999.

If this multimedia-centric smartphone still appeals to you, you can get it now for RM400 less.

As part of DirectD’s Mega Sale 2018. the LG V20 is now going for RM1,598. Despite being over a year old, the specs are still quite decent for today’s standards.

It has a primary 5.7″ Quad HD IPS display that comes with a secondary 2.1″ screen on top for notifications and shortcuts. Under the hood, it runs on a Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB RAM and has 64GB of storage which is still expandable via microSD.

Moving towards the back, the V20 features a dual-camera system that uses a 16MP f/1.8 primary shooter for normal shots and a secondary 8MP f/2.4 unit for wide-angle shots. The cameras are assisted by EIS (Electronic Image Stabilisation) and DIS (Digital Image Stabilisation). Upfront, you’ll find a 5MP f/1.9 camera for selfies.

The V20 also comes with a 32-bit ESS HiFi Quad DAC with manual controls with LCF (Low Cut Filter) for audio recording. Powering the device is a 3,200mAh battery which is removable and it charges via USB Type-C. The device is also MIL-STD 810G compliant which makes it more durable against drops.


If you’re looking for something newer, the LG G6 which was released in Malaysia sometime in April this year is now cheaper than before. DirectD is offering the G6 at RM2,298 or you can get it for as low as RM2,258 on Lazada Malaysia.

To recap on the specs, the LG G6 also has a 5.7″ Quad HD display but it’s smaller to hold thanks to its 18:9 FullVision display. Under the hood, it runs on a newer Snapdragon 821 processor and in the imaging department, it features a dual 13MP shooter at the rear and a 5MP selfie camera at the front. The 3,300mAh battery is not removable but the G6 has IP68 rated dust and water resistance.

Take note that the units listed here are official units with Malaysian warranty. Are these devices worth getting? Let us know in the comments below.

Old processor. With the same price, get a One plus 3t instead


    LG camera features is better


    Actually, same processor as OP3 but not OP3T, 3T has SD821.

    Also, processor is important but not everything, below are a few reasons why you should consider LG v20
    + Quad HD screen
    + Dual Camera and it has OIS, also Widescreen camera is amazing! On the other hand, OP3 is using EIS
    + Quad DAC for audio performance and come with B&O headphone
    + Removable battery!
    + Dual Sims slot (depends on model) and a dedicated micro sd slot
    + Second screen (Helpful or not, depends on the user, for me it is)

    Now for the cons:
    – SD821 has better power efficiency than SD280, also slightly performance boost
    – OP3T has slightly large battery capacity, so overall higher battery endurance
    – Dash charge charged faster
    – LG v20 has lousy / messy stock UI (3rd party UI can easily fix this)
    – Bulkier? (user dependent)

    So, in the end, depends on user's need. But my v20 has been serving me well, would definitely recommend it.


LG V20 come with B&O headset. the cheapest B&O headset i can find is around RM600-700.


    I bought a LG v20 two months ago, and it did come with a B&O headset. Although it's nice to have, it certainly doesn't worth that RM600 – 700 price tag.


      I think the headset is "tuned" by BO. i tried the one i got with lg v20. even xiaomi piston hybrid is better


Looking at this phone LG V20, iPhone X, Huawei Mate 10 Pro,and Samsung Note 8, I found that LG V30 is much better than all of them.

Sadly, no official LG Mobile Malaysia to be present physically in here.


Even specs is quite good but doubts the software update and support of LG.


I think the real deal is the htc u ultra
same ram/storage as LG v20 but with with snapdragon 821 selling at 1398
