LG announced the V20 officially earlier today at a special event in San Francisco. It comes with brand new design and significantly improved the multimedia experience over its predecessor V10. Furthermore, it is the world’s first smartphone to run on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box as well as world’s first phone to come with 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC from ESS. Although, it can’t compete with Note7 because V20 lacks stylus. Here is why LG should have included a stylus with V20.
As you guys can see in the LG UX 5.0+ feature focus video (at 0:38min to be exact), LG showcased that the secondary screen will allow users to trigger memo app whenever they need to take notes. However, the guy in the promotional video takes the notes using a finger, which is the most awkward way to take notes in this Note7 arena. Who will consider writing on the screen using fingers? That’s where LG should have thought about including a basic stylus (at least). Don’t you think that the stylus will come handy in this kind of situations?
Technology and innovation are meant to simplify the day to day tasks but not to make them difficult. LG built the features that can be done perfectly using a simple stylus. In my opinion, LG should have bundled a basic stylus with the V20. Surprisingly, LG built the stylus related features without even knowing them.
Moreover, the V20 is here to compete with the king of the phablet (Galaxy Note7), so it makes much sense if it comes with a stylus. As we already know that focusing on audio won’t attract many users as HTC is doing the same thing from years.
I believe that there are many factors to support my sentence, but I have included the most prioritized one. What do you think folks? Should LG bundle a stylus with V20? Let us know your words in the comment section below.
