The LG V40 ‘ThinQ’ has finally launched in the UK in 2019, and I’ve been using it as my personal smartphone. Ahead of my full V40 review, here’s my love/hate list after a few days, so you can get a brief idea of the best and worst features of LG’s super-premium handset.
While I still love LG’s excellent G7 flagship phone, and I’m hoping the upcoming G8 will keep up standards, the V40 has a lot to offer – especially in the camera stakes. The ultra-wide and telephoto lenses help the LG V40 to stand toe-to-toe with Huawei’s Mate 20 Pro when it comes to flexibility, as well as photo and video quality. As usual, this ThinQ phone boasts an incredible range of features, courtesy of LG’s smart UI. And those specs are strong.
As well as the swift performance, the V40 boasts amazing battery life. However, we’re not such big fans of the charger…
And other aspects of LG’s first 2019 UK launch also impress us less – such as the lack of a dazzling finish, that dedicated Google Assistant button and the older Android Oreo OS.
Stay tuned for a full review of the LG V40, and you can see my full camera comparison with the Huawei Mate 20 Pro right now!
