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


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

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: Undeveloped innovation


The LG V40 provides all the quality of the G7, but is weighed down by its unreasonably expensive price tag and terrible battery life.

Incredible amount of unique features ; Minimal bezels with small(ish) notch ; 5 cameras provide lots of options ; Extras: microSD, IP68, headphone jack ; Quad DAC and audio quality

Poor battery life ; Unreasonably expensive ; Camera performance isn't up to par ; Cluttered settings menu

LG V40 ThinQ Android smartphone is quite delightful [Review]


In the world of Android, LG doesn't get the attention it deserves. The company's smartphones are usually exceptional -- well made, with excellent displays, and quite often, above average audio quality too. Yet for whatever reason, many consumers flock...

Review: LG V40 ThinQ


LG's latest flagship includes five cameras to offer the widest-possible range of capture capabilities. The V40 ThinQ also features a gorgeous display, sultry materials, class-leading specs, and quick access to Google Assistant and Google Lens. If you...

The V40 ThinQ is a good device; a perfectly serviceable phone that will do what people want it to do without too much trouble. It could do more to stand out, but I admit that looks aren't always everything.

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.
