LG V50 ThinQ

LG's V50 ThinQ's dual screen makes it stand out, but like 5G it's not without its issues.



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.

Design

  • 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.

Camera

  • 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.

Performance

  • Snapdragon 855 performs superbly.
  • 5G networks are less impressive at launch.
  • Dual screen can work, but you have to make your own fun.

Battery

  • A tale of two battery stories: One good, one bad.
  • Fast wired or wireless charging.

Verdict

  • 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.
