88.9% LG V40 ThinQ Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
The LG V40 ThinQ has finally arrived in Germany after being announced over three months ago. The V40 is an evolution of its predecessor, with LG promising to have particularly improved the display and the cameras. Read on to find out what distinguishes the LG V40 ThinQ from other flagships and how it performs in our tests.
LG V40 ThinQ camera review
Source: DxOMark English
With scores on par with the Galaxy Note 8, which came out in 2017, the LG V40 ThinQ marks a significant improvement over the G7 in most areas. Although it cannot yet compete with recent high-end models, the addition of its first-ever zoom shows that it’s clearly on an upward track. We are looking forward to seeing further improvements in the recently-released LG G8, which we plan to test in the very near future.

70% LG V40 ThinQ review: A flagship worth thinking about
Source: Gadget Show English
LG has always made good looking phones and the V40 ThinQ is no exception. It follows the design trend that most smartphones have these days. The metal frame has a matte finish and the glass back gives it a premium look and feel. The volume rockers are placed on the left whereas the SIM tray and power button can be found on the right hand side. LG is one of the few companies that still gives a headphone jack in the premium devices. The jack alongside the Type-C port can be located at the bottom of the device. What’s also at the bottom is the LG Boombox speaker which is excellent but more on that later. While it is a slick looking device, it does have a tendency to slip off a bit too easily for our liking. At the rear, one will find three cameras that fit in neatly and don’t take too much real estate.

LG V40 ThinQ Review: Flagship with chinks in Armour
Source: The Mobile Indian English
LG V40 ThinQ has a look and feel of a premium smartphone but the price is a bit steep. The major issues with the device are the heating problem, inconsistency in low light photography and an older version of the Google Android which lags behind the competition. As far as the positives are concerned V40 ThinQ handles multitasking effectively, and overall cameras do a good job especially shot taken in good lighting conditions and videography. Even the battery life will not disappoint you.

The LG V40 ThinQ isn't for everyone. It has a plethora of features all tuned for the mobile cinematographer. But it's camera is also the weakest link. While the LG V40's five-camera setup offers the versatality a vlogger might demand, it doesn't really match up to the expectations set by the phone's marketing. But if you're not a vlogger or deal with videos for a living, the LG V40 ThinQ can still be yours for everything else it offers — HiFi audio, qHD HDR display and a sturdy build with water resistance and everything. It's a power user's flagship through and through, but certain caveats like a camera that tends to overprocess photos, poor gaming performance and a confusing UI might put off the mainstream users. To know more about how the LG V40 ThinQ fares, read the full review below.

LG V40 ThinQ review: Delayed launch makes it lose out in premium segment
Source: Business Standard English
Priced at Rs 49,990, the LG V40 ThinQ is primarily a multimedia-centric premium smartphone. Except for a weak on-battery time and thermal issues, there is nothing that the phone lacks. It has a vivid OLED screen with several colour profiles to choose from, a capable camera module on the front and back, premium audio output via wired headsets and a top-notch performance. If you are looking for a premium smartphone other than the OnePlus 6T or Honor View 20, then the LG V40 ThinQ could be an option worth considering.

The LG V40 ThinQ is a solid package at its current price of Rs. 50,000. The only real competition is Samsung's Galaxy S9+ (Review), which is priced a bit higher but can be found for well under Rs. 60,000 online. OnePlus has priced the top-end version of the 6T (Review) at Rs. 46,000, and it offers similar CPU power but has fewer cameras and no shock or water resistance.

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.

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.

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]

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

The smartphone’s revolutionary 5-camera-setup gives the LG V40 ThinQ the power to capture moments big or small, at different angles and from multiple perspectives. It can also easily capture three photos, namely standard, telephoto zoom, and super wide-angle with just one click. Besides that, users can shoot standout selfies with a standard front camera or use the 90° wide angle lens to get the full picture. AI Cam recognizes what users are shooting and suggests the best filter, while AI Composition adjusts the position of the subject for artistically balanced photos.
