LG Wing review: This novelty can’t quite get off the ground

 

You won't find another smartphone like the LG Wing due to the amazing swivel screen, but it's just not that useful everyday. Here's our review.

Superbly made hardware ; Satisfying screen rotation ; Gimbal camera mode works well

Too few uses for the swivel screen ; 60Hz refresh rate screen

LG Wing review: learning to fly, failing to soar

 

The $999 LG Wing is too expensive for one fun gimmick

Interesting design ; Excellent build quality ; Solid performance

Expensive ; Not enough use cases for the second screen ; No waterproofing or fast refresh rate

The $999 LG Wing is 2020’s most unique-looking smartphone, but it doesn’t justify the price premium for that design with real-world usefulness. Check out the full review for more details on the software, performance, cameras, and more.

LG Wing review: a flippin’ fun phone

 

LG Wing — the world's first 5G swivel smartphone

Bright, color-accurate OLED displays ; Pop-up selfie camera ; Innovative, T-shaped design ; Simultaneous rear-and-front video recording ; Awesome app juggling

Past-gen CPU ; Middling performance

The LG Wing is a stellar swivelling smartphone with cool camera features that appeal to vloggers, but it has underperforming internals.

LG Wing Review – Swiveling Android is Peak 2020

 

As anybody who wished for a more eventful 2020 now knows, sweating the details is important. How else to describe the LG Wing, a rotating dual-screen curio that – even in a time of foldable s…

An eye-catching form factor like no other ; Virtual gimbal camera works well ; Second display can be useful with the right apps

Few apps take advantage of the dual-screen design ; Gimbal footage capped at 1080p ; Camera performance is only average ; Battery falls short

LG Wing 5G review: Thinking outside the box

 

The LG Wing 5G is perhaps the most uniquely designed smartphone of 2020 - at least, that's actually in production. To that effect, the unique multi-screen phone looks like a typical candy bar smartphone - The LG Wing 5G is perhaps the most uniquely...

Bold, unique form-factor ; Swivel mechanism is natural and durable ; Vibrant displays ; Neat gimbal camera mode

Bulky ; Verizon model comes with lots of bloatware ; Not enough uses for the second screen ; Pricey

But is it just a gimmick?

LG Wing review

 

The LG Wing has a crazy swivel design, a pup-up robo selfie camera, and a lot of fresh ideas. Gimmick or useful? The market will decide...

Innovative and fun design that has a few niche uses; The gimbal camera is fun, but not amazing; Main and ultrawide cameras are good

$1k can get you better performance elsewhere; Chances to get developers to make apps for this design are slim

LG Wing 5G review: Novel dual screen approach, limited productivity use cases Review | ZDNet

 

LG continues to offer unique smartphone form factors and the new LG Wing is one of the more interesting approaches with a T-shaped form factor. It's optimized for content creation, extra functionality in a single application, and small screen dual app...

Unique dual-screen design ; Well-designed hinge mechanism ; Responsive performance ; Better than split-screen view on standard smartphones ; Reliable 5G and cellular performance

Expensive ; Glossy, slippery back panel ; Volume buttons hard to press in T-mode

LG Wing review

 

The dual-screen LG Wing challenges the phone landscape — for better and worse.

Smooth software ; Clever dual-screen experiences for apps ; Solid swivel mechanism ; Gimbal camera is useful

Very bulky ; Changing orientation can present problems ; So-so battery life ; Poor performance for price

There's no denying LG has taken risks here; the trouble is, those risks haven't entirely panned out well.

LG Wing review: The fever-dream of a phone that 2020 deserves

 

Phones have gotten boring in the last few years, but things are getting weird again, and thank goodness. I have been doing this long enough to remember

Swivel mechanism ; The slider feels solid, and it's fun to play with. ; Gimbal camera ; You can shoot stabilized video that almost replicates a real gimbal experience. ; Displays ; Both OLED panels on the Wing look good. ; Weird ; Taking chances is...

Bulk ; The Wing is too heavy, and the mass is concentrated near the swivel mechanism at the top. ; Swivel form factor ; I'm not convinced there's a good use case for this screen configuration. The gap between display and body looks bad, too. ; Price ;...
