Shutterbugs will appreciate the V20’s wide angle capabilities of the front and rear cameras.

  • The 5MP front camera with a 120-degree lens expands the selfie experience to take bigger pictures with even more friends.
  • The 8MP rear camera with its 135-degree lens is perfect for taking pictures in front of a gorgeous vista or inside a gigantic stadium.
  • Auto Shot Function on the front camera produces perfect selfies with its face detection feature, which triggers the shot when the subject is ready and smiling.

LG V20 is as durable as it is beautiful – it passed the MIL-STD 810G Transit Drop Test for durability conducted by an independent laboratory that conforms to U.S. military standards.
