LG V20

LG has long been known for delivering sleek, beautiful smartphones with impressive specs. Here are its most covetable features: 

  • Audio recorder: With three high AOP microphones, LG has made the V20 the phone for anyone who records voice or music as part of their hobby (hardcore groupies) or their job (journalists). Even the softest voice memos and the loudest rock concerts record without any distortion, thanks to the V20's Audio Recorder app, which delivers high-res 24-bit audio quality. The playback is such high quality that some critics are likening it to a 3D immersive experience. 
  • Camera: Armed with two rear camera lenses, the V20 performs well in low-light conditions, thanks to the 16 MP camera with an aperture of f/1.8. Plus, the 8MP camera has a super-wide-angle lens (135 degrees!), so you can take some amazing shots of your holiday destination; and the selfie cam boasts a 120-degree lens. Hybrid Auto Focus delivers optimal picture sharpness while Auto Shot's face detection feature triggers the shutter for automatic selfies. This video goes into more detail on the camera, showing us three surprising features.
  • Android Nougat: The V20 is the world’s first smartphone to offer Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box and it is also the first to include Google’s In Apps search feature. Some of the boons of Nougat include split-screen multitasking, better Doze battery management, new emojis, and heightened security.
  • Robust design: The V20 is highly durable. Its lightweight yet strong AL6013 aluminium alloy contributes to its durability, as does the top and bottom contact points being reinforced with Silicone Polycarbonate (Si-PC). This make it military compliant, in a nutshell - it stands the toughest Drop Test out there.

In short, the LG V20 is a feature-rich phablet with cutting-edge audio and visual capabilities, and if you're on the lookout for a top-class, high-end, big and beautiful smartphone, it's an obvious choice. 

Get the LG V20 on RED Classic + at R1299 x 24 months. 

Samsung Galaxy S7

When the Samsung S7 was launched, it turned heads with its stunning design and quad-HD display. Along with great battery life, it has various storage options and added security features. Here are our favourites: 

Never run out of juice: We expect our phones to keep up with us throughout the day, whether we're using it as a mobile hotspot, watching videos or writing up emails. The bigger batteries of the Samsung Galaxy S7 (3 000 mAh) and S7 Edge (3 600 mAh) will keep you going. If you do run out of juice, use fast charge to charge the device up to 50% in 30 minutes.

Protection where it matters: The S7 is water resistant with a rating of IP68, which means it is protected from harmful dust and immersion in water. The devices also come standard with Samsung's Knox software, which provides enterprise-level security. 

What's more, S7 owners benefit from Samsung's Premium Accidental Damage from Handling Service. You get one free screen and glass panel repair or replacement. The device will be picked up from you and returned good as new - and you'll get a similar device as a loan phone while you wait. 

Space for all your docs, pics and music: With a range of cloud services such as Google Drive and Dropbox to choose from, we have access to all of our documents, pictures and music on all of our devices. If you need more space on your phone, simply add a microSD card and load it up with photos, music, games and apps. 

Get the Samsung Galaxy S7 at R1349 per month x 24 months on RED More Data.
