LG Velvet Review

Score: 87.1 / 100

LG Velvet is an impressive phone launched back in 2020, including an enormous 6.8 inches display, an extremely powerful 2400 MHz Octa-Core CPU, and two cameras, a 48 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 16 MP front facing camera. That's everything we have to say? Not at all, it's just the introduction of this extreme review.

This phone is much lighter than what you would expect from a phone of this size. This device is available in many colors like aurora gray, aurora green, aurora silver, aurora white and illusion sunset. The LG Velvet body design is a combination of Glass (Corning Gorilla Glass) and Aluminum . The LG Velvet has a beautiful design, with a thickness of just 0.31". Although this phone only has 6.58 inches long and 2.91 inches wide, it's still able to fit a a 6.8" screen.

LG decided to build this phone with a great 2400 megahertz Octa-Core processing unit, included in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SM7250-AB chip with a huge 6 GB of RAM memory. This phone has a large 128 GB internal memory and an SD memory slot, allowing the user to install lots of applications, games, songs, photos and videos without even thinking about running out of space at all.

The LG Velvet has a incredible 6.8" display with a 1080 x 2460 resolution, making everything look amazing.

The LG Velvet has two cameras, a 48 megapixels back side camera and a 16 MP front side camera. Its back side camera lens has a F1.8 aperture so it can shoot sharp photographs even in low-light environments. It is also able to shoot videos in 4K 3840x2160 at 30 fps, and Full HD 1920x1080 slow-motion videos up to 60 fps.

This phone counts with a big 4300 mAh Li - Polymer non-replaceable battery that provides the LG Velvet an amazing battery duration. An issue to take into consideration is that the LG Velvet's battery isn't replaceable so you can't change it when it begins to lose its charge, while with such a great capacity you will probably buy a new phone before that becomes a real problem.

The LG Velvet offers WiFi connectivity (and it can share it with other devices around, acting as a router), 5G ultra high bandwidth connection type, LTE-A 4G super fast connectivity and also HSPA+ connectivity (a lower speed 4G variation) and the fastest 3G internet connection, supported by HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This phone uses two Nano SIM cards so it is able to work with two different phone lines and even different carriers in the same phone.

This cellphone also comes with a great numbre of useful characteristics as Fingerprint Identification, Wireless charging system, NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your cellphone close to another NFC device or tag), Bluetooth (5.0 ), GPS Geolocation and Radio, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

LG is selling the LG Velvet for around $ 264, similar to other similar cellphones. It doesn't matter whether you need a cellphone for work, want it to take plenty of photos, need a cellphone for playing games or will use it as a social phone, you will definitely love this cellphone. LG sells the LG Velvet with Quick Start Guide, SIM Tray Eject Tool, Product Safety and Warranty Information , Quick Charging Block and USB-C cable.
