LG has presented its new flagship smartphone LG V40 ThinQ, "charged" with five cameras. This functionality provides the device with extensive capabilities in the field of creating photos and images.
But it's not just the cameras. Compared to the previous LG V30, the parameters of the device are improved in all directions. It is equipped with a more powerful processor, and is equipped with speakers with better sound transmission characteristics. The screen has become larger. However, video cameras will be of the greatest interest to users.
Smartphone camera overview
A distinctive feature of the LG V40 is its cameras. Before that, there were three of them only on the Huawei P20 Pro. None of the manufacturers have installed five yet.
The reviewed model has three at the back and two at the front. This provides a choice of different approaches to mobile photography.
The smartphone has an AI mode that reduces image blur.
Design and interface
As for the design of the devices of this company, we can say about their own evolutionary path. Recently, they have been supplied with thin cases, good functionality, and have always been distinguished by their practicality.
LG V40 ThinQ has a diagonal of 6.4 inches. His screen lengthened. In a black case, he looks brutal. It will look good in other colors too. A button to launch Google Assistant appeared on the left of the case, and a power button on the right. Her work has a soundtrack. In addition, the device is protected from water and dust.
The screen is designed using P-OLED technology. It has a resolution of 1440 x 3120 pixels. It has fairly accurate colors, but visibility is impaired when viewed in bright sunlight.
The smartphone runs on Android 8.1 platform. On top of it is the LG UX shell. This allows fans of the brand to make everything clear in terms of the interface and some additional features.
As before, there is a floating bar with a floating icon giving access to a carousel of shortcuts and applications. Thanks to KnockON, you can quickly wake up your phone or put it into hibernation. It is enough to lightly tap the display twice.
There is also Context Awareness, which automates some processes.
What's inside. Technical aspects of the model
At the moment LG V40 ThinQ is a device that not only has five cameras, but also has the most powerful technical filling in the company's lineup.
The heart of the product is the Snapdragon 845 processor. The RAM is 6 GB. Its memory is not very large, only 64 GB. You can use a memory card, which will greatly expand the possibilities in this direction.
The smartphone has a 3300 mAh battery, which didn't add much to its autonomy. Average uptime dropped by nearly three hours.
Dual-band Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, 4G compliant.
Quality of functionality
First of all, it should be said about the quality of the photo and video shooting. It is on top. There is no lag behind the leaders in this area.
Sorry, but in terms of shooting dynamic scenes, there is still work to do. Low level of shadow detail, but this is only in low light.
The rest of the photos are rich, bright, organic. Selfie and artistic lovers will appreciate the addition of Cine Shot. It allows you to create GIF animation on the finished image. It turns out beautifully.
The device fulfills its intended purpose with dignity. The quality of communication during telephone calls is good, the volume level of the speakerphone is high.
Summing up, I would like to say about a double feeling after clarifying all the nuances of the new device from LG. On the one hand, five cameras is good and cool, but on the other hand, focusing on this functionality did not significantly improve other characteristics of the smartphone.
Time will show how users will react to this.
