Verizon is the leading carrier in the U.S. and just so as to share some of its profits with the loyal customers, the carrier is bringing you the V series with quite a number of decent freebies.
Starting right now up until April 30, you can grab yourself the impressive LG K20 V from the carrier and get yourself a free 32GB microSD card or a $25 Google Play Credit – whichever suits you! The phone itself has a price tag of just $168, still, you can get it on a 2-year contract of just $7 per month. Cool huh!
You might be wondering what specs this really affordable LG K20 V carries. Well, for starters, this is a budget phone and as such, try to keep your expectations in the sub-$180 price category. The phone comes in with a decent 5.3-inch display screen that mimics the size of the LG G5, but the resolution is way lower at 720p, which is still not bad at all.
Under the hood, the LG K20 V packs a decent Snapdragon 425 SoC that is clocked at 1.4GHz and is supported by a 2GB RAM. The storage is at 16GB, but it can be expanded via a microSD card of up to 2TB. For optics, the K20 V has a 13MP shooter on the back while selfies will be taken via a 5MP lens. The phone packs a 2800mAh battery and comes powered by the latest Android 7.0 Nougat OS out of the box. Even better huh!
On the other hand, you can also get the new Samsung Galaxy J7 V. Although a budget phone, it has a slightly higher price tag than the LG K20 V. To get one at Verizon, you need $240. This will give you a slightly larger 5.5-inch display screen with the same 720p resolution. Under the hood, the Galaxy J7 V has a more powerful Snapdragon 625 SoC that is paired with a 2GB RAM. For storage, you get the same 16GB, but the microSD card slot here can only handle up to 256GB.
Samsung Galaxy J7 V lags behind when it comes to optics, with the main sensor shipping with a paltry 8MP while the front has a 5MP, but do keep in mind that the quality of photos is not dependent on megapixel count. On the brighter side, you’ll be promised a much longer battery life with the Galaxy J7 V thanks to the bigger 3300mAh unit that also supports fast charging technology. Software-wise, the J7 V has Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
