LG’s fourth flagship smartphone of 2018, the LG V40 ThinQ comes with a clearly refined enhancement and upgrade to its predecessors. While LG has retained champion features of the V30S ThinQ, V35 ThinQ, and LG G7 ThinQ, the V40 has been reinforced with LG’s best-ever camera.
There are two extra lenses that bring the entire setup to a total of 5 cameras to add a touch of distinction and versatility rarely seen in smartphones.
Great OLED display for a refined design:
The V40 ThinQ is a combination of LG V30 and LG G7. While it looks exactly similar to V30 from the back, the introduction of the third camera on its horizontal module makes all the thrilling difference.
The fingerprint sensor is fast to react. The back is simple, chic and clean. Of all available color variants, Moroccan Blue and the new Aurora Black are to die for.
Loud Boombox Speaker:
LG has reinforced V40 with one of the G7’s signature feature: the Boombox speaker. While it required a complete transformation in the smartphone’s internals to adjust a single, bottom-firing speaker, it has transformed the entire phone body into a thumping resonance chamber that helps in pushing out unbelievably loud audio coupled with a breathtaking bass that sounds simply sublime.
Robust performance with no Android Pie:
Like the majority of Android flagship phones of 2018, the V40 ThinQ runs on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 processor and hosts 6GB of RAM. Along with an internal storage of 64GB, there’s a typical MicroSD card slot to help you expand the storage as per your fancy.
Performance issues are a rarity in V40: apps launch quickly, the navigation across various Android OS features and settings is fluent, multi-tasking is no problem whatsoever, and even the most demanding games such as Alto’s Odyssey will run without a hitch.
A versatile camera:
LG’s V40 introduces the company’s new five-camera system, making it the most versatile camera phone ever. The smartphone features a standard 12-MP lens featuring a f/1.5 aperture along with optical image stabilization; a telephoto 12-MP providing 2x optical zoom at the f/2.4 aperture; and a wide-angle 16-MP lens at a f/1.9 aperture. The comfort to go for a wider shot, swap to a closer one, or hand on with the standard lens almost instantly makes the V40 smartphone camera fun to play around with an aura of elegance and creativity.
All-day-long battery life:
The V40 ThinQ runs on a decent 3,300mAh battery, which easily lasts for up to one complete day if not more on average use of videos, games, photos, social media and, of course, enough of voice calling! You can expect an average of 4 hours of screen-on time on average usage and standard running benchmark apps.
The bottom line:
Overall, it is a decent smartphone and, as is the case with LG, you can expect a price drop within a few months of launch, making it a deal worth a steal. The features are versatile, with the camera being at the forefront of creativity and performance, and the battery will help you go around comfortably all day long.
