Korean-based multinational LG Electronics has more than fifty years of producing a diverse array of electronics for international markets. While the company has produced multi-media and home appliances for half a century, it first entered into the cellular phone market in 2002 with the LG B1200. Since the release of smartphones worldwide, LG has consistently produced popular Android phones that compete in the international market with other top phones with the same operating system.
Released in October 2016, the new attributes of the LG V20 are ultimately focused on creating better video and audio technology. The LG V20 emphasizes a smoother, less shaky video experience by using frame analysis and rendering to smooth the image. The camera also has an internal quick video edit and live video for different kinds of in-camera video presentation. With audio, the LG V20 has three mics to create a cleaner audio with fewer gaps and glitches. The LG V20 also offers a more dynamic dual camera with a 120-degree wide-angle lens.
The LG G6, announced in February 2017, is the newest model in the LG G series and looks to compete with the Samsung Galaxy 8. The G6 sports a simple style with a larger display and high-performance processor. Also, the phone boasts dual 13 MP cameras with a standard 71mm lens and a 125mm wide-angle lens for more sophisticated photos is a variety of lighting situations.
LG phones have won many 2017 awards for innovation and design. The LG V20 won multiple innovation awards, including a 2017 CES award and a 2017 Red Dot “best of the best” award. Alternately, the LG G6 won multiple awards at the Mobile World Congress in 2017, including top tech and “best in show.” In its review of the LG G6, Cnet.com calls the phone beautiful and technically competent, noting that “the polished G6 has a streamlined aesthetic and a smooth unibody design” and smaller, faster and quicker processor.”
