This low-end phone from LG offers some surprisingly great features. Its limited internal storage of 16 GB is heavily compensated by its microSD card slot that can support up to 2 TB. Moreover, it offers excellent battery performance - can deliver up to up to 14 hours of 3G talk time. Unfortunately, its camera is not that great and it lacks fingerprint support.

This Itechguide is a detailed LG K20 review. The phone is rated in the following categories – Display, Camera, Battery, and Storage options.
LG K20 Review: Display Features
Coming 1st in my LG K20 review is a detailed evaluation of the phone’s display features. Before you decide to buy a phone, it is important to review the phone’s display features. The quality of the display determines the quality of the videos you play on it.
To help you understand how good LG K20’s display is, I will discuss the phone’s display technology and its resolution.
LG K20 comes with an IPS LCD display. IPS LCD technology is common in most phones. It is known for its rich colors and high resolution.
Unfortunately, LG K20 can only boast of an HD resolution. It is the lowest display resolution available. You will still be able to watch HD videos but the quality will far from a 4K display.
Considering its display features, LG K20 scores 3.5 out of 5 for display rating.
LG K20 Review: Camera Features
Next in my review of this LG phone is a look at its camera features. Another important phone buying decision consideration is a phone’s camera.
To help you determine the quality of the camera in LG K20, I will evaluate the camera’s resolution (Megapixel, MP), aperture (ƒ.stop number), and its pixel size.
The phone has a single rear camera rated 8 MP with an aperture of ƒ/2.0. It also has a front (selfie) camera rated 5 MP, ƒ/2.2. Compared to other competing phones, an 8 MP camera is low. Most phones I have reviewed offer 12 to 13 MP rear camera.
Considering the camera features offered by LG K20, it scores 4.25 out of 5. The camera is low-end but I wouldn’t write it off completely. It will still deliver decent photos. However, if camera is a big deal for you, you may want to consider a phone with a dual rear camera like Moto X4.
LG K20 Review: Battery Performance
Coming 3rd in my LG K20 review is a detailed evaluation of the phone’s battery performance. One could argue that smartphone batteries have come a long way. However, it is still a big challenge for most phone users.
To help you evaluate the battery in LG K20, I will discuss the battery’s mAh, talk time, and whether it supports fast and/or wireless charging. I will also consider whether the phone ships with a **removable battery or not.
LG K20 offers a 2,800 mAh non-removable battery. However, the low battery size has not stopped the phone from delivering up to 14 hours of talk time. Unfortunately, the battery does not support fast charging or wireless charging.
Considering the features of LG K20’s battery, it scores 3.9 out of 5 in our battery rating. The low score is due to its low battery capacity. However, LG did a good job with the phone’s ability to retain charge for a long time. Overall, the battery is above average for performance.
LG K20 Review: Storage Options
Finally, in my LG K20 review, I will evaluate the phone’s storage options. The storage offered by a phone affects the phone’s speed. It also affects how many files – music, photos, videos – you can store.
To help you evaluate the storage options in LG K20, I will review the maximum size of the phone’s internal memory and its internal storage. I will also consider whether the phone offers a storage expansion option with a microSD card. Finally, I consider the maximum expandable size offered by the microSD card.
LG K20 has an internal memory of 1.5 GB. The phone’s internal storage is 16 GB. Moreover, the phone supports a microSD card that can take up to 2 TB! What the phone lacks in internal storage, it makes up in microSD card expansion. 2TB external storage is excellent.
Despite its excellent storage expansion options, the phone scores 3.9 out of 5 for storage. The reason it scores just 3.9 is due to its low internal memory of just 1.5 GB.
