One thing that we find difficult to digest is its price tag which is Rs 49,999 and having tough competitors like OnePlus and Samsung it will be difficult for Lg to compete. Also price justification is also a challenge for this smartphone. To justify this price tag a smartphone needs to have big screen size, fast performance and a camera which can reflect good camera quality.  And Lg v40 specifications match these criteria but the point where Lg lacks is the brand value, we all are aware with the thing that OnePlus and Samsung does has greater brand value than Lg and how will Lg tackle this problem will be an interesting thing to catch on.

Talking about the specifications, Lg v40 has very stable specification and the triple camera at rear and front camera at front is the most interesting part about its specifications, let’s check out Lg v40 ThinQ specifications.

Design & Display

This smartphone is truly a beauty and looks gorgeous we were really impressed by the design of the phone. Lg has really worked on the design and looks of this beauty. The rear is beautify crafted, at bottom we can see branding of LG with is vintage logo, above that at center V40 ThinQ has been placed with very creative look, above that we will get fingerprint sensor and at top we can three camera lenses in parallel line. The rear design looks very idly placed and very impressive and comes with Gorilla glass 5 protection with aluminum frame. The front is bezel less and you can easily notice the wide and vibrant screen. At top you will notice a wide notch with dual camera set which is first in the segment. Lg v40 do comes with premium deign and it will be great to have this beauty.

Display is a very important factor for any smartphone as one always notices screen and display at first look. 6.4 inch wide and vibrant screen do gives a plus point to this smartphone. 1440 x 3120 of resolution with P-OLED capacitive touch screen which is amazing. Some unique and amazing things which Lg has given in V40 ThinQ are Dolby vision, HDR 10 and Always-on display which surely make the Lg V40 different in the segment.

Camera

Capturing ability of any smartphone has now become biggest factor of its sales and Lg has given his all focus in making Lg v40 ThinQ a great camera smartphone.

The rear camera comes with trio of 12 mega-pixels+12 mega-pixels+16 mega-pixels capturing lenses. All three cameras come with their own specialty and task, the first one is Standard, the second one is Telephoto and last one comes with ultra-wide feature. There are some other hidden features of camera like dual pixels, 2x optical zoom and OIS. Consumers will surely get LED flash and panorama mode for sure. Talking about the camera quality we will just say that fabulous, this smartphone really clicks well and you will definitely enjoy the pictures captured by Lg v40.

The front camera comes with duo of 8 mega-pixels+5 mega-pixels capturing lenses. This is the first smartphone in the segment which comes with dual camera on front. These cameras have Standard and Wide angle quality. The camera really clicks great and you will love the selfies clicked by the front camera of Lg v4o ThinQ.

Performance

We will not say that this smartphone is one of the fastest performing smartphone but we will define it by saying that it performs good. Neither great nor very fast but just good, Lg has focused much more over its design and camera and hence neglected to focus that much over its performance. Also there has not been any additional specification which can help the smartphone to perform fast. Lg v40 runs on Android 8.1 Oreo Operating System paired with chipset of Qualcomm SDM845 Snapdragon 845 and Octa core 4×2.7GHz processor with Adreno 630 GPU.

One thing that we will say that performing factor is a very important criterion for any smartphone to justify the price and Lg v40 ThinQ somewhere lacks in the price justification. The performance performs well but could have better performing specifications.

Other Important features of Lg V40

We will start with battery as this is also an important factor for any smartphone; this phone comes with Non-removable Li-Po 3300mAH battery with many features like fast battery charging 18W and can be charged to 50% in just 36 minutes as it has quick charge 3.0. Also it has USB power delivery 2.0 and comes with Qi fast wireless charging 10W. This is quite impressive from the phone.

As mentioned above that Lg has really worked hard for this phone to look great and hence this comes in attractive colour options like New Platinum Grey, New Moroccan Blue, Carmine Red and New Aurora Black.

This phone has a bio-metric fingerprint sensor at rear and can also be unlocked with face recognition, both the unlocking features works fast. This phone is loaded with many other sensors like accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass and barometer.

Conclusion

It is hard to say that Lg V40 ThinQ specifications are unable to justify Lg v40 price and we can easily see that there would be not great success for the smartphone. However OnePlus and Samsung become the better options in the segment with lesser price and better specifications.

 Lg v40 price in India is Rs 49,990 which is over-priced, if Lg would have worked some more on the performance part and would have given some features like fast performing chipset etc. then the price would have been considerable but we will say that this price tag is not digestible.
