LG V40 ThinQ Review

Score: 10.19/10

LG V40 ThinQ is a very high-end device launched a few years ago, including a big size 6.4" display, an extremely fast 2800 MHz Octa-Core CPU, and two cameras, a 12 MP back facing camera and an 8 mega-pixels front-facing camera. But let's get into more detail.

Talking about its construction materials, the LG V40 ThinQ is majorly made of Glass (Corning Gorilla Glass 5) and Aluminum . This cellphone is just 0.3 inches thick, making it one of the thinnest devices nowadays. The LG V40 ThinQ is a very compact cellphone, considering it has a 6.4 inches screen and it's only 6.25 inches long and 2.98" wide. This cellphone feels much lighter than what one would think about a cellphone this size. LG sells the LG V40 ThinQ in 2 colors: aurora black and moroccan blue.

The LG V40 ThinQ is equipped with an astonishing 6.4" screen with a 1440 x 3120 resolution, giving this cellphone a high level graphical experience.

The LG V40 ThinQ is powered by a very powerful 2800 megahertz Octa-Core processing unit, bundled in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SDM845 system chip with a great 6 GB RAM. This cellphone comes with a big 64 GB internal storage and a slot for external memory cards, more than enough to install hundreds of applications and even the heaviest games available nowadays without even thinking about how much storage is left.

This phone is equipped with two cameras, a 12 megapixels back camera and an 8 MP front-facing camera. this cellphone's back camera has an aperture of F1.5 so it can shoot very nice pictures even in poorly lit environments. The LG V40 ThinQ can also shoot videos in 4K 3840x2160 at 60 fps, and Full HD 1920x1080 slow motion videos at 240 frames per second (8 times slower than regular videos). In addition, this device's camera also features time lapse video.

This phone features a big 3300 mAh Li - Polymer non-replaceable battery that provides this cellphone a good battery life. An issue to take into account is that the LG V40 ThinQ's battery is not removable so you can't change it when it starts to get older, although with such a huge battery size you will probably discard this phone before that becomes an issue.

This cellphone has wi-fi connection (which it can share with other devices as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE-A) high speed internet connection and also HSPA+ connectivity (a slower 4G variation) and the fastest 3G connection type, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This phone uses a Nano SIM card for GSM carriers.

This phone also includes a lot of great characteristics like Fingerprint Sensor, Facial recognition to unlock, Wireless charging capability, NFC, Bluetooth (5.0 ) and GPS (Global Positioning System), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

The LG V40 ThinQ is not a good choice considering it costs $ 900, and some similar devices are offerred way cheaper than that. It doesn't matter whether you are looking for a device mostly for internet broswing and social networks, are an amateur photographer, want a phone for gaming or are looking for a phone for work, you will definitely love this device.
