LG ups its audio performance with the LG V60 ThinQ: Significant upgrade on the LG G8 ThinQ
The LG V60 ThinQ has finally made the trip over to DxOMark for an evaluation of its audio capabilities. LG flagships are typically considered to be some of the best phones for audio, so one would expect top-of-the-chart from LG's flagships but reality has often been disappointing.
The V60 ThinQ earned an overall audio score of 65. That's a solid score, actually, and places it on par with the Samsung Galaxy S20+ (66) and OnePlus 8 Pro (67), and above the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G (61) and P40 Pro (59). It's certainly a big upgrade on the LG G8 ThinQ (52), in any case.
In the playback category, the LG V60 ThinQ recorded a score of 66, competitive with the Galaxy S20+ That's likely down to LG using a proper stereo speaker system on the V60 ThinQ, and is a significant jump from the LG G8 ThinQ (51) and its Boombox speaker.
It's in the recording category that the LG V60 ThinQ seems to disappoint, however, as it only manages a score of 59. That's surprising, as the phone's quad-mic setup was marketed as an impressive feature. That recording score isn't terrible, though, but it's worse than flagships like the Galaxy S20+ (69) and Google Pixel 4 (63). However, it's also a significant improvement on last year's LG G8 ThinQ (52).
