The LG Velvet is not for YouTube fans
The LG Velvet impresses with its refined look and its premium features, such as stereo speakers, an IP68 certification and wireless charging. The Dual Screen case in the style of the Galaxy Fold also raises the LG smartphone above its midrange competitors. Nevertheless, the new upper-midrange smartphone from the Korean manufacturer is not the optimal choice for everyone, because the tall aspect ratio of the P-OLED display means that fans of YouTube will run into problems when watching videos.
A clear advantage of the 20.5:9 aspect ratio is the ease of handling, which results from the thin, tall display. However, this is not an optimal aspect ratio for certain applications. This is why users will often have to contend with black useless bars on the screen. Moreover, video content with the aspect ratio of 16:9 or 18:9 on such websites as YouTube is heavily zoomed in when watching it in fullscreen mode. Here, the only alternative is to watch video content with large black sidebars.
