To complement the great cameras, the 2020 K series phones come with “cinematically proportioned displays” that have thinner bezels. Not only will the videos you record look good when played back, but so will other movies you download and watch on the devices. The large battery should also ensure that you aren’t continually recharging these phones.

Unfortunately, LG didn’t provide us with pricing for any of the devices, however, the K series is a mid-range line so expect to pay a mid-range price.
