LG didn’t have the best impact with its modular G5 flagship, but it pulled itself together and moved on, building a worthy successor for the V10. The V20 came with a secondary screen, a dual-lens camera and it ran on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, being the first non-Google device that arrived with the new operating system. The V20 is awesome, but in order to obtain even a greater experience, you should follow some of the tips we’ll tell you about.
Customize Quick Settings
If you tap the edit button located at the bottom of the quick settings panel, you’ll be able to drag buttons to the bottom section, so it will be easier for you to prioritize the first five most used toggles that will be seen at the top of the notification pane.
Set Knock Code
By placing your finger on the fingerprint sensor, you will be able to unlock your phone. However, if you tap on the screen a few times, you will be able to wake it up, and this feature is called Knock Code, and it’s exclusive to LG’s smartphones. In order to use this feature and create a pattern of taps that will cover most of the screen, you will head to Settings, where you will look for the Lock Screen menu.
Customize The Second Screen
The V20 has a 2.1-inch secondary screen on top of the primary screen of 5.7-inch. This area shows app shortcuts, notifications and many more, but you can also make some tweaks, to change what it’s displayed when the main screen is on or off. So, go to the Display settings, select Second Screen and play with the settings. You can choose to see date and time when the primary screen is turned off, and when it’s on, you can access contacts, recent apps, custom app shorts etc.
Customize Navigation buttons
If you don’t like the way LG has arranged the back, home and overview buttons at the bottom of the screen, go to the Display settings > Home Touch Buttons and change the order of buttons or their color. Also, you have the possibility to add a fourth button.
Adjust the Display Size
The V20 supports a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels, resulting in a pixel density of 513 ppi. The screen icons, text and buttons – they’re all large, but if you have some vision problems and want to make the user interface denser, go to Display > More > Display size, where you will drag the slider to the left. The icons will het smaller, but the text will be denser and this will allow you to make the screen more crowded.
