LG V40 ThinQ Review

Score: 81.2 / 100

LG V40 ThinQ is a very high-end device launched in October 2018, including an extremely powerful 2.8 GHz Octa-Core CPU, an enormous 6.4-inches display, and 2 cameras, a 12 MP back facing camera and an 8 MP front facing camera. Let's take a better look at what this phone offers to us.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 features a big 3300 mAh Li - Polymer non-replaceable battery providing this cellphone an incredibly long battery duration. An issue to take into account is that this cellphone's battery isn't replaceable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it begins to lose capacity, though having 3300 mAh you will probably replace this phone before that becomes an issue.

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.

This phone is priced around $ 204, similar to other same level cellphones. It doesn't matter whether you will use it to play tons of games, want a social cellphone, will use it as a work phone or you love taking photographs, you will probably be very pleased with it.
