Reviews for the LG V40 ThinQ

LG V40 ThinQ: 10 Things You Need to Know
Source: Androidcommunity.com English
We’re ending the year with a few reviews of the last smartphones to be released. The LG V40 ThinQ first came to our senses in the form of an official press invitation. Triple cameras were said to be coming together with a display notch. An earlier design also showed the Android phone with five cameras (three rear + dual selfie shooters). The phone was unveiled officially back in October and we immediately noted the device’s Cine Shot feature makes cinemagraphs easy.

80% LG V40 ThinQ Review: Unique in colorful quality
Source: Slashgear English
Much like each previously-released LG V-family smartphone, this unit’s gonna have a life well beyond your average phone, not least of all because of its built-in DAC for high quality audio and its multiple camera options and decent photo and video quality. I recommend that as SOON as you purchase this smartphone, you get a protective case of some sort to keep this phone in mint condition. The industrial design of the machine will remain beautiful for years to come.

LG V40 ThinQ Android smartphone is quite delightful [Review]
Source: Beta News English
My biggest complaint is the $949 MSRP. Many new flagships have prices near or above $1,000 these days, however, so the V40 ThinQ is not alone here. It would be nice if consumers didn't have to experience such big price hikes. With that said, there are many deals to be had on this smartphone lately, so you can get it for hundreds of dollars less if you look around. If you need a new Android smartphone, I urge you to give the V40 ThinQ a look -- you will be pleasantly surprised. The V Series is still top-notch.

LG V40 ThinQ review: Most underrated phone of the year
Source: Talk Android English
That’s not to say everyone should run out and buy one of these, especially at LG’s MSRP. While it’s normally dangerously close to the Galaxy Note 9 and kind of holds its own, at a discount I think it’s an excellent choice for anyone that’s primarily into media consumption on their phone. There’s enough extra polish with some of the software and hardware features to keep this phone at the top of the dog pile, flaws and all, and as a media enthusiast, this might just be one of the most fun phones I’ve used all year.

So, at the end of the day, can I recommend this phone? Sure. Despite its faults, it does many things right and has enough features to keep you busy, if that’s what you want. It’s a fantastic intersection of excellent hardware with okay software. It truly is a compromise.

90% LG V40 ThinQ review: A great device that isn't loaded with gimmicks
Source: Neowin English
Of course, the big downside is the price. Like so many smartphones these days, the price is going up, and the V40 ThinQ will set you back $949.99. Companies like Apple and Samsung are charging even more than that for a new phone, although this still has to compete with companies like OnePlus, which is selling its new 6T for $549. Still, if you're going for premium and you're going to spend that much, the LG V40 ThinQ is a great choice.

This V40 ThinQ, as it is right now, is a bit too flawed in areas that we consider too essential to give it a pass just like that. It's also too awesome in other areas that will make the flaws a mere blur in the background at the right price. For better or worse, knowing how things go with LG phones, the right price is not more than a few months away.

At the time of launch the LG V40 ThinQ is LG’s best phone. It’s more of an iteration of the G7 than anything else but that’s no bad thing. It’s not a particularly sexy or exciting phone but with outstanding wired audio in a market that is shunning headphone jacks it’s a welcome differentiator.

LG V40 ThinQ – Does 5 Cameras Make it Better? [Review]
Source: G Style Magazine English
So to the question at hand. Does five cameras make the LG V40 ThinQ a better device? Well, it certainly doesn’t make it worse. I think it’s a good standout feature and the extra cameras do provide real use and extra features so in my opinion, yes, it does make it a better smartphone, if photography is your #1 concern.

LG V40 Initial Impressions

LG like other flagships does two major releases every year. First off was the all-around consumer directed LG G7 at the start of the summer and now the ones heavy tech aficionado eye every year in the V series. The V40 packs an impressive five lenses with three on the back and two on the front. LG embraced the notch on the G7 a few months prior and brought that along with them on the V40. I used the latest device from LG for a few days before sending it over to my colleague to do his full-on review and there were some things I liked and didn’t like using the V40.

The V40’s impressive features are needed because it isn’t an affordable phone. Coming in at well over $900 depending on the carrier you go with, you are paying top dollar for it and as such expect it to be an excellent device, which the V40 obliges with.

LG V40 review: The V stands for Victory (and Very expensive)
Source: Good Gear Guide English
So while the V40 is LG's best phone in a while, you'll probably want to hold off until the price drops to a more reasonable $750 or $800, at least until the rest of the October handsets arrive, and the holiday discounts soon afterward. LG fans who do decide to pre-order one won't be disappointed, but they'll be much happier if they wait for a better deal.

The LG V40 puts photography first with five cameras on a single Android phone, and that gives you varying shot perspectives, whether you’re taking a wide group selfie or rear-facing telephoto masterpiece. You’ll love seeing the camera modes and various tricks play out on the beautiful 6.4-inch OLED screen, though competing handsets take cleaner pictures, have longer battery life and, in many cases, are cheaper.

Overall, the V40 is an excellent phone, and probably the best one LG has ever made. It won’t appeal to everyone — you have to be a fan of big phones, for starters, and software purists will still be happier with a Pixel — but in a world where smartphones are becoming increasingly similar, the V40 differentiates itself with its unique camera system.

LG seems to have its heart in the right place with the LG V40 ThinQ, but even the best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry. Three capable cameras with lenses designed to capture three of the most fun and useful perspectives (wide-angle, regular, and 2X zoom) sounds like a dream, and in many respects, it is – we love the versatility. What we, and most consumers spending nearly $1000 on a phone might appreciate more, though, is a regular camera that is always up to the task, and unfortunately, we can’t say that about the V40 ThinQ.

LG V40 ThinQ Review: A Five Camera Android Contender
Source: Hot Hardware English
LG struck a nice balance with the V40 ThinQ. Looking back through the benchmarks and battery life numbers, the LG V40 ThinQ doesn't quite lead the pack in any particular category, but it is right in the mix with some of the most powerful, flagship Android devices currently on the market. Couple its competitive vitals with a relatively clean, minimally-skinned OS installation, flexible camera setup -- both for world-facing shots and for selfies -- good looks, its high quality OLED display, and surprisingly good audio for smartphone, and you've got an attractive product on your hands.

But to wrap this up - it's three separate standalone cameras covering a focal length 'range' of 16mm to 50mm - with all those lenses on its back, LG needs to have messed up all the other stuff for the V40 ThinQ not to be a winner. After all, there can't be too many cameras on a smartphone, and no other has more yet.

LG V40 ThinQ Review
Source: Droid Life English
While this phone has a great display, cameras, and solid performance, I can’t see myself going out of my way to recommend it until we see everything else that is coming this month. We’re expecting Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, OnePlus 6T, Razer Phone 2, and probably more in the coming weeks. With so much on the radar, it’s hard to tell anyone that ordering this device immediately is the best thing to do. At the end of October and we know the solidified device lineups for this holiday shopping season, then you can start the buying process on whatever you like best. If you do end up with V40 ThinQ, I think you’ll like it. I know I’ve personally enjoyed the Stuff & Things life quite a bit this past week.
