LG V20 vs Samsung Galaxy Note7 – What’s Different?

LG V20

The LG V10 was probably one of the closest competitors to the Samsung Galaxy Note5 as well as the S6 edge+. The Note5 wasn’t made available in every region but at least the S6 edge+ was there to take its place in such regions. The V10 on the other hand too had limited availability but none to take its place. However, this time around, LG seems to be betting hard on the V20 especially since the V10 was received well and the fact that Samsung is still sorting out the battery issues with the Note7. Let’s compare both the devices to see which beats the other at least on paper.
