Reviews for the LG Wing

82.3% LG Wing Smartphone Review - An ingenious dual-screen concept? | Notebookcheck
With the Wing model, LG takes a completely new look at smartphone operation. Instead of using a foldable OLED panel, the Korean manufacturer implements a second display below the main screen. Does this make sense, and is it a more robust alternative to a foldable smartphone such as the Galaxy Z Fold 2?

80% LG Wing Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The LG Wing is a one-of-a-kind smartphone that brings a completely new form factor to the market. LG's approach is unique, and the Wing stands out in a sea of similar-looking smartphones. Since this is LG's first attempt at a T-shaped folding smartphone, the Wing is a bit thick and bulky, which could make a few buyers think twice. There aren't many rough edges here, but recent reports hint that LG could quit the smartphone industry entirely, making a successor uncertain.

LG Wing Camera review: Excellent color and solid performance indoors
Source: DxOMark English
With smartphone design and screen innovation somewhat stagnant these past couple of years, it’s refreshing to see something totally unique from LG. The Wing’s dual-screen possibilities could prove useful for multitasking and for offering more intuitive control, with apps configured to run over two displays. Those might be limited at the moment, but with manufacturers like LG and Samsung driving multi-window or split screen displays, we could be seeing the future of smartphone design. The LG Wing is less revolutionary in our analysis of image quality, however. For the most part it’s fairly competent, with nice color rendering, accurate target exposures, and well-controlled noise its main strengths.

90% LG Wing review: A small extra screen that adds huge value
Source: The Indian Express English
Yes, if you are one of those who have been contemplating a dual-screen or foldable phone. This phone is much more affordable and offers a very unique experience that can also be practical. I recommend this phone for those who record a lot of video, either for a hobby or for work. The adventurous among them will really love the gimbal mode. The extra screen is an add-on that is worthy of the price tag. And being an LG phone, the chances are the prices will drop soon, making this phone an even better buy.

The LG Wing isn’t for everyone. There are just a few out there that will want to give this smartphone a try, and those people will thoroughly enjoy it. There are also a handful of users who like to try new tech out and for those people, well, using the LG Wing is pretty fun, and it’s certainly a conversation starter. Overall, the Wing isn’t for those who aren’t really interested in trying new and unique devices. This is a phone for the more adventurous, willing to deal with a few annoyances and compatibility issues to enjoy something different. I think LG made the right choice in pricing this where they did. It’s accessible and not wallet crushing giving curious tech users a taste of a different world.

60% LG Wing Review – Swiveling Android is Peak 2020
Source: Slashgear English
The tech-loving geek in me adores the fact that LG did something kooky with the Wing. It’s part of what the company calls its Explorer Project, focusing more on imagination than outright sales potential. The realist in me thinks that’s a good thing, because while the Wing may be fun it doesn’t really deliver functionally.

LG Wing 5G | Swiveling for a Certain Crowd [Review]
Source: G Style Magazine English
LG continues to try and bring you a different smartphone experience than the norm that we have grown accustomed too. Its welcome but will everyone else accept it? The Wing for starters is great for the multitasker allowing two apps to work simultaneously or expand on one. The problem with that 2nd part is not all apps support it and we will be lucky if they will. If you are looking to try various ways to create content the Wing will keep you occupied especially with its Gimbal features.

LG Wing Review: A Solid 5G Phone With A Wild Twist
Source: Hot Hardware English
In the end, beyond the swivel design and matching $1000 price tag, this is a solid handset. You’re getting lovely displays, nice cameras, worthy performance, and excellent battery life. Sure, LG’s software skin could use updating, and the mono speaker is disappointing, but these aren’t deal breakers. What’s important here is that LG took a chance and made a truly special device. And we can’t wait to see what the Explorer Project delivers next.

LG Wing review: Keep the weird stuff coming

It’s an incredibly thick phone that I think most people won’t enjoy, and you know cases will be few and far between. For this amount of money you can grab something with better cameras, longer battery life, and more features that aren’t gimped by Android apps’ lack of support, and LG doesn’t do themselves any favors with their track record on Android updates.

The LG Wing is a show-stopping, swiveling smartphone that will turn heads everywhere you go. The Wing isn’t the zippiest smartphone on the market, but I’d argue it’s the most innovative. If you’re seeking a dual-screen smartphone with industry-leading specs, consider the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2, but keep in mind those better-performing internals will cost you a whopping $999 more.

Thoughts on LG Wing: Compelling, Unnecessary Design
Source: Droid Life English
I’ll make this real simple: No, you shouldn’t go out and buy the Wing. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone, even those who want to be Instagram influencers and YouTubers. I’m not even going to recommend it to the commuters and gig drivers out there. The LG Wing is purely a sweet concept phone that LG decided to actually make, and at $1K, you can do better. If you really want a crazy design, I’d have you wait for LG’s next Explorer device, suggested to feature some type of rollable display. That looks much more useful in terms of everyday usage.

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.

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: Phones Are Fun Again
Source: MrMobile English
The LG Wing is just the kind of phone I’d feature on an episode of my “When Phones Were Fun” throwback series … if it hadn’t just debuted this month! Yes, while the Wing mimics the form factor of 2008’s VX9400, it’s very much a product of 2020, from its 5G chipset to its mammoth OLED displays to its surprisingly innovative Swivel Camera mode. In fact, reviewing the LG Wing was the most fun I’ve had reviewing an LG product since I started this channel – and not just because it involved wine tasting, either!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Comment

Model:

The LG Wing is the latest addition to the LG family. The phone comes with a front screen which swivels horizontally and upward to reveal a smaller display underneath. This definitely delivers more screen real estate. Despite the front screen design, the phone can still be operated with a single hand. The LG Wing is obviously denser and thicker than the LG Velvet in a side-by-side comparison. Overall, this phone looks like any other phone out there at first glance: From its edge-to-edge display along with a rectangular design up to its in-screen fingerprint reader and USB-C port at the bottom, the device definitely has some resemblance with most phones out there. However, the LG Wing can never be ignored for its signature features.

The 6.8-inch OLED main screen swivels out sideways and moves up horizontally at the top of the phone to expose the smaller 3.9-inch display underneath. It is definitely worth noting that the mini display works just like the full-size; users can use apps on it (though in a slightly more cramped interface), use it for secondary controls as in the camera app, or dedicate the whole space to a keyboard. Even though 3.9 inches seems tiny by today’s standards, it is not at all that bad, because it is only a little smaller in area than the 4-inch display of the iPhone 5 / original iPhone SE. The display perfectly suits the need for texting and light browsing.

As far as the camera is concerned, the LG Wing has been equipped with three rear cameras, including a 64MP main camera which captures a 78-degree field of view, and a 13MP ultra-wide lens with a 107-degree field of view. Both lenses can be used for standard still photography and video. In addition to these two lenses, there is also a 12MP ultra-wide lens with a 120-degree field of view that is specifically used for a video mode with swivel functionality. Gimbal Mode can be used to stimulate shooting with a gimbal device using controls on the mini display to move the camera once the main screen has been flipped up. Apart from that, there is also a new 'hexa-motion sensor' that stabilizes shots and allows digital approximation of following a subject and panning the screen. Along with the triple rear cameras, there is also a front-facing 32MP selfie camera which pops up from the top of the phone. It should be noted that this is a first for LG, since users can use a Dual Recording mode to flip back and forth between selfie and rear cameras while recording – or have both going at once and pick where the picture-in-picture inset video is.

The LG Wing has a Snapdragon 765G chipset, which enables 5G connectivity. It also packs a respectable but not top-tier 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage (expandable via microSD by up to 2TB).  Overall, this phone is definitely a great device to be explored, depending on the need and preference of the user.

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. LG is an international laptop manufacturer of medium size with few reviews.

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).


76.65%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
