Review: LG V40 ThinQ

Hardware Software Wrap-Up Comments  1  

The V40 ThinQ is a good device; a perfectly serviceable phone that will do what people want it to do without too much trouble. It could do more to stand out, but I admit that looks aren't always everything.

The metal-and-glass chassis is well-made, from fine materials. The huge display is impressive. The core functions — wireless performance, voice quality, and battery life — are all where they need to be. Some will surely appreciate the high-quality headphone jack, but I'm sad about the lack of stereo speakers.

LG's take on Android 8.1 is a bit busy and involved for my tastes, but it offers a lot of avenues to personalize the phone. The software lets owners take control of nearly everything and the underlying processor ensures the phone runs smoothly.

The camera app is incredibly powerful, if also incredibly overwrought. I like the sheer volume of capture modes, but they are scattered all over the place and often come with a learning curve. Thankfully the three lenses provided unique flexibility and the resulting images are mostly of high quality.

All the major U.S carriers will sell the phone, including AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular, and Verizon. Pricing ranges from $900 to $980 depending on the carrier.

The LG V40 is a nice phone. It's attractive, capable, and well-built. Whether you opt for this over an IPhone or Note is purely a matter of taste.
