Reviews for the LG Wing

The LG Wing 5G Is Here, and It’s Something Else
Source: Gear Diary English
I thought having the main display swivel to reveal a smaller display might be more of a novelty than anything else, but I have been proven wrong. I use the LG Wing 5G in Basic Mode most of the time, like I’d use any other smartphone. But when I want to multi-task, it is so convenient to have the smaller second display available in Swivel Mode to enhance and enrich my experience. The LG Wing snuck up on me; I didn’t expect to enjoy using it as much as I do, but that is exactly what happened.

70% LG Wing review: An incredible first try, but a first try nonetheless
Source: Android Authority English
The LG Wing is a first-try at an entirely new form factor for modern smartphones. It needs some work to appeal beyond the early adopter crowd, but it's impossible to deny that LG is on to something here. In other words, we're anxiously awaiting the LG Wing 2.

70% LG Wing Review: Learning To Fly, Failing To Soar
Source: The Verge English
The LG Wing’s rotating display is a marvel of engineering and an incredibly fun novelty, the kind of design innovation that’s exciting to see in a world where most smartphone designs are just variations on the same identical black slabs. But being new and interesting doesn’t mean that something is good, and without better software support or a lower price tag, it’s hard to recommend the Wing for anyone but the most jaded smartphone owners.

LG Wing review (hands on)

The LG Wing may seem strange at first blush, but it reels you in with intuitive software experiences that make use of the unique dual-display approach, as well as a handy gimbal camera for video. However, we'll have to conduct additional testing before we can give it our recommendation.

84% LG Wing 5G review
Source: GSM Arena English
For all we know, the Wing form factor might be a one-off thing. And again, that's not just us speculating, since the last thing we learned regarding the future of the Explorer Project was a teaser for what seems to be a slide-out display phone design. Simply put - for all the bold, early-bird tech explorers out there, the LG Wing is definitely worth your love and time, for all the rest of us - waiting to see where LG's explorations ultimately land them is by far the best choice for now.

But it’s impossible for its unique swivel feature to hide, even when using the phone normally, thanks to the phone’s heavy weight and thickness. Its quirkiness is an acquired taste, and only enthusiasts or the curious should buy one.

60% LG Wing review: Swing and a miss
Source: Android Central English
The LG Wing is a fun example of how to pack dual-screen functionality into a phone that's only slightly larger than your average big (big) phone. But LG's Android software, and the phone's 60Hz refresh rate, make the experience less fluid and intuitive than it should be. And the software gimbal feature, with its poor low-light capabilities, seems like a missed opportunity.

The LG Wing is definitely… out there. A strange and kind of wacky device — LG has again shown that it doesn’t shy away from experimenting. The Wing looks like a phone that someone just came up with during a brainstorming session, and it was accidentally greenlit.

LG Wing 5G hands-on: Surprisingly practical
Source: Engadget English
When it comes to offering more screen real estate on a smartphone, manufacturers have two options: either go with a flexible display à la Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 2, or attach a secondary screen like the LG Velvet. While the latter is obviously the easier (and cheaper) option, both implementations have a common problem: multi-tasking only works well when both apps are in portrait orientation, due to the design of most apps.

LG Wing hands-on: Here's what it's like to actually use the weird swiveling phone
Source: CNet English
These days, phones are either rectangular slabs with one straight screen or, in the case of the Galaxy Z Fold 2 or Motorola Razr 5G, they're slabs with flexible screens that open up. But the LG Wing is neither. Instead, it's a phone with two screens, one of which swivels on top of the other.

Source: Techradar English
A phone like the LG Wing 5G is tough to judge from the little time we’ve had with it so far, especially if some of our misgivings are fixed in the final build. What’s equally unclear is just how useful the extra screen real estate is, especially with the unique applications of the T-shaped display layout when swiveled open.

Huge thanks to LG for sponsoring this video. The LG Wing might just be the craziest phone of 2020. Its definitely one of the most unique smartphones of the year. The screen of the new LG Wing can swivel up into a 'T' shape. Revealing a smaller square screen hidden below.

The LG Wing 5G phone has a swiveling screen, because it's 2020, so why not?
Source: CNet English
Turns out the swiveling LG Wing phone, which was leaked ahead of its announcement in a YouTube video, is real and as wacky as the rumors purported it to be. Unveiled at a virtual presser earlier this month, the 5G phone has two screens, one of which swivels on top of the other to form a T-shape design. In the US it will be available first on Verizon, then AT&T in the fall and T-Mobile.

LG Wing hands-on: what does the LG Wing do?
Source: Phone Arena English
Unfortunately, LG has not yet shared details about release plans for the LG Wing. Neither do we know an exact price. Word on the street says it’ll be in the ballpark of $1,000. Sounds like a fair price, considering the crazy concept and the super-stable camera, right?

Hands on: LG Wing 5G review
Source: Techradar English
Outside of expensive foldables, phone design has stagnated in the last few years, with most phones these days being slight variations on the edge-to-edge glass rectangle. The LG Wing 5G is a bold exception: a phone with a front screen that swivels horizontally and upward to reveal a smaller display underneath, providing more screen real estate in a device that you can use one-handed.

The LG Wing is an interesting addition to the selection of truly weird devices we’ve recently had our hands on. The foldable and dual-screen device categories are growing quickly, and it’s great to see more companies imagining how we’ll interact with different form factors in the future.

Qualcomm Adreno 620: Integrated (in the Snapdragon 765 and 765G) graphics card based on the Adreno 600 architecture. Supports DirectX11_1, Vulkan 1.0, OpenCL 2.0, OpenGL ES 3.2. The 765G variant is 10% faster than the one integrated in the 765 and 20% faster than the Adreno 618 predecessor.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


SD 765G: Fast mid-range ARM SoC with 8 CPU Kryo 475 cores (one fast ARM Cortex-A76 prime core at up to 2.4 GHz, one A76 gold core at 2.2 GHz and 6 small ARM Cortex-A55 cores at up to 1.8 GHz). As one of the first SoCs it also integrates a 5G modem (Snapdragon X52 up to 3,7 / 1,6 Mbps down- and upload, mmWave and Sub-6 support). The processor is manufactured in the modern and energy efficient 7nm EUV process at Samsung. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

LG:

LG Electronics Inc. is a subsidiary of the LG Group. LG is the world's second-biggest maker of televisions and third-biggest maker of mobile phones. With its headquarters in South Korea, the company has 75 subsidiaries worldwide that design and manufacture televisions, home appliances, and telecommunications devices.

After a few years, LG largely withdrew from the laptop sector. In the smartphone segment, LG is a medium-sized manufacturer (not among the Top 5 in 2015 and 2016).


75.78%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
