Of all the first generation of 5G phones we're seeing in Australia, the LG V50 ThinQ is easily the most innovative. Sure, Oppo has its shark-fin pop up camera on the Oppo Reno 5G, but that's small beer next to the inclusion of a secondary screen that comes bundled with every LG V50 ThinQ.
It's an inclusion that gives the LG V50 ThinQ a new selling proposition while we wait for true "foldable" phones to hit the market. 5G phones are still a luxury buy for anyone, but this is LG's best flagship in years.
- Basic V50 ThinQ isn't all that sexy a phone.
- Rear mounted fingerprint sensor feels old school.
- Dual screen case provides easy protection.
- Case is big and bulky in comparison to other 5G phones.
- Triple lenses are fast and mostly good.
- Better low light performance than we've seen from LG in years.
- Good, but not market-leading camera output.
- Snapdragon 855 performs superbly.
- 5G networks are less impressive at launch.
- Dual screen can work, but you have to make your own fun.
- A tale of two battery stories: One good, one bad.
- Fast wired or wireless charging.
- Dual screen puts it ahead of the folding game, but for how long?
- Easily the best phone LG's produced in years.
- 5G still isn't a core reason to buy.
