LG V50 ThinQ 5G

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.
