LG Velvet review: LG’s flagship is finally competitive again


LG has ditched the dull smartphone designs it has trotted out for a while, and given us the fabulous-looking LG Velvet, which is as slinky as its name suggests.

Great design ; Beautiful screen ; Water-resistant and durable ; Decent battery life

Camera needs improvement ; No 90Hz/120Hz screen refresh rate

LG Velvet 5G Review


Relatively affordable 5G ; Beautiful design ; Excellent audio quality with 3.5mm headphone jack ; Gorgeous screen

Disappointing low-light camera performance ; Top network speeds slower than some competing phones

The LG Velvet is an elegant midrange 5G phone that doesn't really stand out.

LG Velvet review: sleek, not smooth


A new approach for LG that puts design over specs

Slick design ; Useful Dual Screen case ; Headphone jack ; Good battery life

Sometimes stuttering performance ; 60Hz screen ; Average cameras ; No more Quad DAC

LG’s latest flagship trades high-end specs for a sleek design and a dual-screen case. Is it worth stepping down to a slower processor for a thinner 5G phone?

The LG V60 and VELVET Review: A Classic & A Design Restart


It's been a few months since LG has released the LG V60, and since then the company has also finally managed to launch the new Velvet phone to western markets outside of Korea, such as Germany. The two new 2020 phones are quite contrasting devices for...

Camera wise, the Velvet actually performed very well, and its best characteristics are that the processing is extremely similar to that of the V60, which means it’s quite excellent. Of course, the inferior sensor does mean slightly less details,...

LG Velvet review


The LG Velvet is an upper-midrange phone with flagship looks. Is it worth a possible asking price of $700? We'd say hold off for a discount...

Beautiful design; Great screen; 5G ready; 3.5 mm headphone jack

Performance is just okay; A telephoto camera would've been nice; Price is not low enough to make it competitive; Dual screen and active pen are sold separately

LG Velvet Dual-Screen Review: Unique Form-Factor But Questionable Overall Performance


LG Velvet Review. The smartphone is powered by an older Snapdragon 845 SoC and flaunts a 6.8-inch (2340 × 1080 pixels) Full HD+ 20.5: 9 aspect ratio OLED display.

Unique Dual-Screen Design ; Excellent Display ; Premium Aesthetics ; 3.5mm Audio Jack ; Impressive Audio ; Durable Body ; Effective Multitasking

Underwhelming Battery Life ; Irregular Software Update Cycle ; Occasional Lags ; Below Par Camera Performance

LG Velvet is a design-focused value flagship smartphone with unique dual-screen form-factor. It is the only handset in the sub-50K price-point that comes close to offer a foldable smartphone user-experience at one-third of the price-point of premium...

LG Velvet review: back on the smartphone catwalk | AndroidPIT


The LG Velvet is the most interesting-looking smartphone from the South Korean brand for years. But is it any good? Here's our full review.

LG has gotten so much right with the Velvet. For the first time in years, the manufacturer has delivered a smartphone that looks genuinely modern and attractive. The 3D Arc Design is a big win for me. It makes the Velvet feel comfortable yet thin in...
