The LG G7 polled okay, but the V40 ThinQ got a more positive reception. And not just for the 5 cameras.

And the speaker is through the usb port..
Its like a phone that is trying to cram to much into it..
Not intrested myself i want a phone with decent features that work well not loads of features that dont..
The usb c dac is worse for sound quatily
Having your speakers through the usb c dac will limit the overall sound output
And needing to buy a NM storage chip . That isnt availabe and is slower and has a lower max capcacity than a sd card.. and will cost more..
You would have to be dumb to buy the new huawei phone.. imo
Its like someone selling you a car and going.. we taken out the radio and replaced it with a phone holder that has a cable to plug your phone into for music depending on your phone you will need to buy an adapter at £10 plus and have one of are enginneers fit it.. for a total price of £100 Also we decided to put your speakers through you're Airvents/AC so if your trying to get cool or warm the car up.. well tuff luck listening to music

AnonD-632062, 14 Oct 2018Umm.... Doesn't the LG V40 also have a microSD card slot?Yes it does

Whackcar, 14 Oct 2018This is definitely one of the more interesting phones of 20... moreI bought LG V30 solely for the following reasons.

1. 32 bit Quad DAC
2. 3.5 mm jack

And combining with high impedance earphones like Soundmagic E80c, the output is very good. Happy that they are retaining the same for LG V40 also.

Anonymous, 14 Oct 2018Why don't give it a 4000 mAh battery?I own LG V30+. It have 3300 mAh battery only but due to the software optimization by LG, the mobile scored 93 hours of endurance rating in GSMarena. Also the mobile is also lightweight compared to other flagship models with same screen size.

Sorry LG but what's wrong with your mobile devision managers? Why your latest smartphones didn't attract attention? Maybe because of ugly design?

Lack of SD card? Where did you get that from? It has an SD slot.

Alex, 14 Oct 2018Really?!? Mate 20 Pro!?!?!Yeah
Better camera (especially if rumors of wide angle are true)
Better SoC
FaceID
More RAM
More Storage (though it will lack SD card)
Bigger battery
Faster charging
What else do you need?

LG has headphone jack and SD slot and given 3 months will cost much less... no going to credit that to LG but I feel LGs dropped price is what people really look at noone buys these things at full price

Alex, 14 Oct 2018Really?!? Mate 20 Pro!?!?!The mate 20 will be faster and if it's at all improved on the P20 cameras a much better camera setup and much longer battery... As well as likely more up to date (neither are great but currently LG is the worst)

Coming from a LG G6 owner so not a anti LG standpoint

This article missed another disappointment: lack of stereo speakers. I mean, if LG was about audio, why leave out something almost EVERY 2018 flagship has? It was even rumored to have it and that hyped me up but they keep stupidly putting in the one speaker. Small battery? I can get a battery case that even flips the bottom speaker forward. Solo speaker? I can't do anything so this phone is a no for me.

Gonna wait to see what Huawel does. Otherwise, I guess the Note 9 (when the price drops) or Razer 2 is gonna be the phone for me.
