LG V40 ThinQ – A high-specs phone with some serious camera function! Lets check it out!

LG’s this years flagship phone (LG G7 ThinQ) had a really good camera, top performance and a really good user rating, so they came out with a new phone, that has 3 camera ont he back, 2 on the front and a lot of feauters in the camera software.

Display/Design

Well, to talk about the display, it’s a 19.5:9 ratio 6.4” QHD+ screen with 538 ppi which is pretty impressive. There is notch on the top like a on a lot more phone next year, however it’s not as big as some of its competitors, but it could be a lot smaller. The design is pretty like evey other LG phones, metal frame and the fingerprint reader is on the back.

Hardware

64 GB internal memory, SD card up to 2TB, 6GB of RAM and Snapdragon 845. There are faster and much more powerful phones ont he market, but it’s still more than enough for an everyday user. Battery capacity is 3300mAh, which is a little bit small.

  • Fast battery charging: 50% in 36 min (Quick Charge 3.0)
  • Fast wireless charging

It also comes with a Boombox speaker, which sounds impressive and loud, and there is quite a lot of bass in it for a phone.

Camera

Rear:

  • 12MP Telephoto Zoom f/1.5, 1/2.6″, 1.4µm, 3-axis OIS, dual pixel PDAF
  • 16MP Super Wide-Angle f/2.4, 1.0µm, 2x optical zoom, OIS, PDAF

  • Portrait – you can set the blur on the background and also change it

Conclusion

So the new LG V40 ThinQ has some really good camera funcions (cines shot is the best one), but it’s neither an innovation nor the best adnroid phone around. With it’s 1000$ price tag, it’s a little bit expensive when you consider that the OnePlus 6T has a much better performance and a bigger battery.
