    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.

    It’s not worth 900-980, just my opinion and they will not sell many

    I agree. I think the five cameras are just a gimmick, and the phone itself is not worth the steep price.

    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.

    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.

    And honestly, I’m not sure what LG is doing when it comes to the G and V series. They don’t seem to have a plan forward. They have 2 flagship phones competing against one another. It makes no sense.
    On the flip side, the low and mid end LG phones are fantastic. The Stylo 4 and Aristo 2 offer some great specs for the sub-300 price tag. In fact, LG sells a ton in this market!

    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.

    It can sell for $900 in South Korea but nowhere else.

    I think Apple will only put a dual camera on next years phones, I’ve seen a few things lately stating they will ditch their 3 cameras on the back plans..

    I’d love to see three or four cameras on the back with more zoom and better low light capabilities.

    LG does make some really good phones. It's kind of unfortunate. The V series offers the best audio DAC compared to anybody else out there. So far they have still retained headphone jack and SD card. I hope things turn around for LG. I also like their wide-angle camera feature, lets you capture a VERY big area when taking photo. I haven't seen it on other phones even with multi cameras.
