LG V40 ThinQ review: It’s different, but is that good enough?
Despite the brand’s success in India, LG is not a company that is at the top of anyone’s mind when it comes to smartphones. But that has not stopped the Korean tech company from coming up with very good smartphones every year. For 2019, LG is starting with the V40 ThinQ in India, which is a unique phone in many aspects.
LG V40 ThinQ specs: 6.4-inch QHD OLED display (3120×1440 pixels), 19.5:9 aspect ratio | Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor | 6GB RAM + 128GB storage (microSD slot up to 2TB support) | 12MP + 16MP ultra-wide angle sensor + 12MP telephoto sensor | Front camera 8MP + 5MP | 3,300mAh battery | Android 8.1 Oreo
LG V40 ThinQ review
LG V40 ThinQ has a very slim and slick design. In fact, this is a phone that feels great in your hand, the curves sort of blend well into your grip. This is also a stylish phone if you don’t put it under a cover. It sports a metallic frame and a faux metal rear panel. But you will need to put it under a cover as it is also very slippery. The LG V40 ThinQ has a fast fingerprint scanner at the rear.
The phone has a very impressive 6.4-inch QHD OLED display that makes it great for watching videos. It is also bright enough for you to use it under the bright Delhi sun.
The LG V40 ThinQ is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 and can handle all types of tasks easily. Also, the phone does not heat up when you use it for long hours, consuming video, poring through articles with multi-tab browsing or just recording UHD video.
On benchmarks, this phone ranks close to the Google Pixel 3XL which is a decent slot to be in. But what you need to know is that performance wise this is a phone that will keep you happy.
But I don’t expect anyone to pick up this phone purely on performance. The feature that sells the LG V40 is its camera, or should I say cameras. The V40 ThinQ has five cameras — three in the rear and two up front — together making it a real combo to beat.
