Even your iPhone 7 Plus friends will have camera envy with the V20’s quad-camera setup. LG introduced the world to dual cameras on the V20, with two front-facing shooters for even wider angle selfies, and the company isn’t one to shy away from its camera innovation. The V20 is the first phone on the market to ship with four cameras: two in the front and two in the rear.
LG’s dual camera array differs from Apple’s take on the iPhone 7 Plus. Whereas the iPhone’s rear cameras work together to let you zoom in for close-ups, LG’s secondary cameras go the opposite direction, allowing you to pan out for an even wider field of view.
On the back, you’ll have a 16-megapixel main camera with f/1.8 aperture and 29mm equivalent field of view alongside a secondary 8-megapixel camera with an f/2.4 aperture and wide 12mm field of view. It’s unfortunate that the wider lens doesn’t capture images at the same high resolution as the main camera, but I appreciated the wider field of view when taking pictures of landscapes, architectures and large group shots.
In real life, portrait photographers will likely gravitate towards Apple’s setup, but for landscape shooters, the V20 may give you just the right perspective to become the next Ansel Adams.
