LG V50 ThinQ 5G Review

LG V50 ThinQ 5G Review

The LG V50 was launched together with the LG G8 at MWC this year. Everyone was shocked as they received a confirmation with the actual device at MWC. because before MWC it has been rumored that LG is working on a 5G device but no one actually thought it was going to come this soon in this year. that said, without any more waste of time lets start the review. Firstly we would start with the special features, that makes this phone wonderful.

5G Connectivity

Yes, that’s what you just saw. like I have mentioned before on this post, the LG V50 ThinQ 5G is the world’s first 5G mobile phone. We have heard different rumours of smartphone manufacturers working on 5G devices but we never knew LG will be the first to pioneer this technology. With the LG V50 5G connectivity, you will enjoy twenty times more speed then when you are using a 4G device. because well, that is the essence of off a 5G device. So you get a lightning fast browsing, downloading, streaming and any internet activities that requires an internet connection.

Extra Screen Accessory

This one was kind of shocking because we didn’t expect it at all nor did anybody think of it. the extra screen accessories kind of makes the LG V50 a foldable device. So you can call it the LG V50 foldable. The extra screen accessory of this device is kind of a pouch but with a screen on it. So when the phone is opened you have two screens. One is the main V50 screen and the other screen is the one on the pouch accessories.

LG has found good use of the extra screen accessory on the V50 device. the extra screen can be used as a screen while the V50 screen as a gaming pad when gaming. you can be using a different app on the extra screen while using another app on the main screen. You can be watching a video on any of the screens while using the doing the other screen for something else. so yes this is a very amazing feature. And I think some people might actually opt for this type of foldable display than those of Samsung and Xiaomi.

Design and Display

We are going to be considering the design and display of the device together. The LG V50 has a gorilla glass 5 on its front and back and an aluminum frame around its edges there is a dual nano sim. The device also has IP68 water and dust resistivity. A 6.4-inch P-OLED display and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. The display has a notch with dobly vision HDR always-on display. This is basically a very nice display, actually one of the best display out there.


On the camera department, there is a famous 5 camera setup. There are two cameras on the front of this device. The first is a 5mp wide-angle camera for capturing more details and the other is a standard 8mp camera. On the rear side of the device, you will find the triple camera setup. which is the same with last years V40, with a single 16mp super wide-angle camera and a dual 12 mp camera, one a standard 12mp camera while the other is a 12mp telephoto camera. So yes if you’re a fan of the previous device then you know that the cameras were easily one of the best features of the last years V40 device. I see no reason why this one won’t be the same.

Processor and Storage

Yes to accommodate for the 5G, this device processor has to be different. The processor is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 which is normal but customization of a snapdragon x40 model to take care of the 5G capabilities. Which is not present in the other snapdragon 855 devices as they do not support 5G connectivity. There is an Adreno 640 GPU for taking care of the graphics department. on the storage department, there is a 6gb of Ram and 128gb off internal storage. A MicroSD card can be used to expand it up to 2 terabyte of internal storage.


Here there is a big 4000mah battery attached to the device. I will call this win because not many of the flagship devices of these days come with a 4000mah battery. But I think it is mainly because of the 5G connectivity that it came so. However, the battery features a Qualcomm fast charge of 18W that can give you up to 50% just 30minutes.


Like always, LG has always been cautiou about the sounding of their devices. There is a stereo sound on this device and also a 3.5 jack with a special sounding technology for your headphones.

Price and availability

You should know by now that all these great specs won’t come cheap. And so there’s a price tag of about $1047 on this device. and you get the extra screen accessory for about $192 when it gets to the US and SouthKorea. If you ask me this price is exactly right for this device. I will personally recommend this device considering that the specs match up with its pricing.


As this is the first 5g device, and the device also features an extra screen accessory. I will choose the device any day anytime over any other device. and also considering that the price also matches up with the specs of the device, this device is worth your consideration. Besides the extra screen accessory and the 5G connectivity, the device is pretty much the same as the V40 of last year. But those two extra features means  a lot.

am loyal smart and humble.
