Smartphone cameras are quickly catching up with traditional cameras. We’ve seen flagship units with dual, triple, and even quad-camera systems, offering consumers a versatile photography experience. If you’re looking to upgrade to a smartphone that can boost your photo game, you may want to check out the LG V40 ThinQ. Amazon has a which drops the price from $950 to $800.
This LG flagship phone comes with everything you would want in a smartphone: A stunning OLED screen, a fun camera system, a great speaker, and a speedy processor. And since it’s factory unlocked, you can use it with any cellular carrier.
The V40 ThinQ shares a lot of similarities with the predecessors V30S ThinQ, V35 ThinQ, and G7 ThinQ, but what sets it apart from the older models is the camera. There are five cameras in total, bringing the entire system to a kind of versatility that you don’t often see on a smartphone. The three lenses on the back provide you with the ability to go for a closer shot, stick with the standard angle, or swap to a wider one, making it fun to play around with. Photos are colorful, well-detailed, and have excellent white balance in any lighting condition. The A.I. cam is also a delight: It recognizes scenes and adjusts photos automatically to what it thinks is best. Other camera features include the Portrait Mode for the blurred background effect, the dual front cameras which can capture nice selfies, and the Cine Shot which lets you take cinemagraphs.
Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 processor paired with 6GB of RAM powers this smartphone. Games run without a hitch, apps open quickly, and moving through the operating system feels fluid. It’s safe to say that you’ll likely not run into any performance issues. LG also gave the V40 ThinQ a bigger OLED screen at 6.4 inches, with a resolution of 3,120 x 1,440 pixels. It supports HDR10, so content looks sharp and colorful. Matching the screen is a Boombox speaker that pushes out quality, room-filling audio with decent bass.
