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: Unique in colorful quality


The LG V40 ThinQ is a unique smartphone because of its multiple alternate trajectories in smartphone trends. This is a phone that amps up everything I loved about the LG V35 (my favorite phone of 2018) . Instead of running with the trends of one...

Display is colorful, sharp, and brilliant ; Phone backside has a premium, unique quality ; Camera options are plentiful and helpful ; Audio quality is top quality with built-in DAC ; Notch can be hidden correctly*

Notch in display (though software options are good!) ; Speakers down-facing instead of forward-facing ; Phone case not included in box ; Camera placement a bit awkward

LG v40 ThinQ review: This 5 camera phone is the future


Being the first smartphone to pack in 5 cameras, the LG V40 ThinQ made headlines when it was announced back in October. Since then Huawei has come out with the Mate 20 Pro with 4 Being the first smartphone to pack in 5 cameras, the LG V40 ThinQ made...

5 dedicated cameras with tons of features ; Brilliant large / wide display ; Excellent performance ; Headphone jack ; Water resistant ; Hideable notch ; Built-in DAC

Average battery life ; Uninspiring fingerprint-prone design

The LG V40 is an even better deal in 2019 than it was in 2018

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: Full-featured smartphone built for Android tinkerers Review | ZDNet


LG's V-series phones have always been optimized for those creating still images and video content, as well as for those who want the best audio experience. The V40 is the best V-series ever with five cameras, Boombox speakers, and much more.

Solid hardware with drop resistant rating ; Five cameras to cover all modes of capture ; Excellent RF performance ; Fantastic audio experience ; Wireless charging support

Average battery life ; Terrible app launcher ; Timeliness of updates remains to be seen

LG V40 ThinQ Review: Phone for audiophiles and creative photographers


LG V40 ThinQ Review. Priced at 50K, LG V40 ThinQ features a five-lens camera setup, gorgeous QHD+ screen and delivers the best-in-class audio experience. It struggles in software and battery performance.

Interesting and capable camera setup ; Excellent 2K display ; Durable design and feels super premium in hands ; Best-in-class audio experience

Battery life could have been better ; Not the best camera for low-light photography ; Dated Android Oreo ; Market now offers smartphones with latest hardware and software

The V40 ThinQ is another impressive flagship phone from LG. The brilliant 5-lens camera setup alone gives me enough reasons to recommend this phone to anyone who keeps photography in his/her highest regards. Besides, the vibrant QHD+ OLED screen, super...
