https://www.macrumors.com/2018/10/03/iphone-xs-vs-lg-v40-thinq/The LG V40 ThinQ was recently announced. Wanted to get a thread about everyone’s thoughts on it, especially against Apple’s flagship, the IPhone XS Max.
I agree. I think the five cameras are just a gimmick, and the phone itself is not worth the steep price.
This.I don’t think the cameras are a gimmick as they’re attempting offering some genuine functionality (wide angle, standard, and telephoto) but the reviews I’ve read/watched seem to indicate execution and performance of those cameras aren’t on par with the competition.
I’ll personally take one really well implemented camera (Pixel 2) vs. multiple mediocre cameras.
Apple are rumoured to be having 4 cameras next year. I think even if the phone is good it’s too expensive. Honestly I think only Apple and Samsung can command such high prices.I agree. I think the five cameras are just a gimmick, and the phone itself is not worth the steep price.

It can sell for $900 in South Korea but nowhere else.
Whenever I read people’s comments on the new LG, those with actual experience owning one are concerned about the battery size and think LG might have made a mistake going with this battery size. That’s a concern.
And no, LG phones don’t hold their value. They’re unfortunately in a hole that’s hard to dig out of. Everyone knows that the phones drop in price fast and so they hold out until LG has to drop the price. Even if they make a phone that’s actually worth the opening price they’re stuck with the fact this scenario plays out year after year and nobody but some die hard loyalists want to pay their opening prices.
