For those of you who are waiting to buy the LG V20, the first non-Nexus smartphone to come with Android Nougat straight out of the box, here is a comparison between it and the previous generation, named LG V10.

To begin with the LG V10 features a stainless steel body plus silicone backing, whereas the LG V20 comes with an aluminum design – the same material used for airplanes – and silicone bumpers for protection.

Apart from these very obvious changes, the two smartphones are approximately the same size as the LG V20 is only 1 mm thinner and 18 grams lighter than the LG V 10.

Both devices come with a 5.7-inch LCD QHD primary display complete with a 160 x 1040 px secondary display, a Snapdragon chipset with an Adreno GPU, 4 GB of RAM plus two variants of native storage space (32 GB and 64 GB).

There’s no real difference when it comes to camera either because both the LG V10 and the LG V20 come with two cameras: a rear facing 16 MP one and a front facing 5 MP one. However, the LG V20 also has a third 8 MP camera much like the LG G5.

The similarities don’t stop here. The two devices both come with a fingerprint reader, an USB-C Type port, a removable battery with fast charging abilities and several connectivity options like GPS, NFC, Wifi (of course) and many more.

As you can see, the two devices are very similar, but they differ in a sense that the LG V20 has latest gen software, a brighter secondary display and it will also run the latest Android 7.0 Nougat from Google straight out of the box which is pretty great for a non-Nexus device. This alone makes the LG V20 a better option for purchase than the LG V10.
