The LG V40 is a savvy Note 9 rival with 5 versatile cameras


Though cheaper than the Note 9, the LG V40 comes with five -- yes, five -- cameras.

The LG V40's five cameras give you a variety of photography options. The phone has a 6.4-inch screen, but is still comfortable to hold. It's water resistant, has expandable memory and a headphone jack.

The LG V40's slew of photo and camera tools can be overwhelming to navigate for a casual photographer. Its battery life is average.

The LG V40 ThinQ is one of the best phones of 2018, but the Pixel 3 XL has the better grab-and-go camera and battery life.

LG V40 ThinQ


The LG V40 ThinQ has a sharp 6.4-inch OLED screen, impressive audio capabilities, and a total of five cameras for a first-class multimedia experience.

Sharp OLED screen. Relatively compact design. Three rear cameras can simultaneously take pictures with three different angles. Dual front cameras for wide-angle selfies. Strong audio features.

Doesn't run the lastest version of Android. Non-remappable Google Assistant button.

The LG V40 ThinQ is a big, powerful phone that takes innovations introduced with the G7 and improves upon them. The addition of a third telephoto lens, the ability to take shots from every camera angle, and the richer OLED display all help justify its...

LG V40 review: The V stands for Victory (and Very expensive)


After a string of disappointing handsets, LG has finally released a phone you might actually want to buy. But probably not at this price.

Immersive 6.4-inch OLED screen provides rich, vibrant images ; Excellent performance, battery life, and design ; Camera takes great pictures and is just plain fun to use

No sign of Android 9. ; $900 price tag is just too high

Price unseen, the V40 is one of the best phones of the year from LG or anyone else. However, it comes in the midst of a month of increasingly stiff competition, and there's a good change that the V40 will be once again left on shelves as people opt for...

LG V40 ThinQ review: one phone, five cameras


The V40 gives you a camera bag full of lenses in one device

Versatile camera system ; Fast performance ; Reliably strong battery life

All-glass design scratches easily ; Cameras aren’t as high-quality as competitors ; LG is still slow with software updates

So often, what makes a camera special or useful is how much enjoyment you get out of using it. And the V40’s camera is fun as hell, even if it isn’t perfect.

LG V40 ThinQ Review


The LG V40 camera system introduces an unprecedented combined range of 16-52 mm that makes it the most flexible mobile camera to date

Exceptional Camera Flexibility ; Huge OLED Display ; Great Performance

Battery could be larger

Google Pixel 3 XL vs LG V40 ThinQ


Running the same silicon with two more gigs of RAM and a three-camera setup, the V40 ThinQ looks like a very formidable contender to the Pixel 3 XL. But are the V40's strengths only spec-deep? We put the two head to head to settle the score.

LG V40 ThinQ Review


Selling for between $900 and $980, depending on the carrier, the V40 ThinQ is again competing with the best in the smartphone market. So, can this triple-camera phone execute well enough to push LG over the hump and solidify the V40 ThinQ as one of the...

A camera for every occasion and solid performance to match ; Capable of recording HDR10 4K video ; Solid build, sleek looks

Camera performance lags behind top-tier competition ; Triple Shot can’t utilize HDR and often lets motion into the shot(s) ; Battery life could have been better ; Expensive

LG V40 ThinQ Review: Three Cameras Aren't Better Than One


LG's V40 ThinQ is expensive. Looking at a spec sheet, the device seems to offer a lot for the money: massive (nearly) bezel-free OLED display, five camera lenses, solid performance with the latest processor and support on every major U.S. carrier.

Solid performance ; Beautiful display ; Fun Cine Shot feature

Short battery life ; Unimpressive Portrait Mode ; Triple Shot is gimmicky ; No timeline for Android Pie

LG's V40 ThinQ is all about the cameras, but unfortunately, its photos are unimpressive. Skip this pricey device.

LG's 5-Camera Phone Offers a Snapshot of the Incredible Multi-Lens Future


If the new LG V40 was a person, it would almost certainly be an AV nerd. On the outside, it's dressed in a rather drab, but not offensive outfit. Inside, it's got some serious camera talent.

Lots of cameras on front and back, solid battery life, still has a headphone jack

Coming in October: Pixel 3, LG V40 ThinQ, Next-gen Surface and more


October looks like it's going to be a busy month for new smartphone, tablet, and laptop launches. I don't normally spend a lot of time writing about upcoming press conferences before they occur. I just quietly add a note to my calendar so I know what...

Anything you’re looking forward to in October that isn’t already on my radar?
