Anonymous, 18 May 2021Huh? What is there to review anyway? And why risk angering ... moreThere are plenty of features that lg phones pack, which even the more expensive phones don't have. Like quad dack, dual screen. Sadly, many reviewers miss out those. Probably they are either not paid well, or a huge marketing fault by lg! Only few reviewers are our there to point out those. Try using lg v series, V60 for example, u will know why fans are whining about lg's decision to quit!

How stupid. They finally have a range of sellable products, even in manufacture, and they choose to close down now. This is after they led to the ruin of the superior LCD market, which went backwards as Lcd's were dumbed down next to the pricier OLED. What is evident, is that fur normal people the LCD was superior in terms of brightness, color gamut and color volume. The only thing it really had going is better black levels, but the best contrast black techniques handle black well, past OLED brightness levels, dual layer even more again. Even the Samsung led quantum dot colour filtered OLED is reported as not the brightest. To get to the full that a Ultra hd Bluray title will do, multilayered LCD is still needed, at the moment very few OLED can even get to full hd10+ performance (even then, not at as big area coverage as LCD). I know, about TV's, but makes as much sense as all the non phone news here.

It's really too late to do anything now. It's such a shame. I should have been able to tell when the sellable v60 product was never released here. Which is another incredible thing, yet the outright phone racks had too many cheap models I wouldn't buy. Well, see what happens when the rest of the industry shakes out from this over model stuff aswell!

No software updates than phone is not even worth 170 bucks.

I enjoy my LG V60 and think it's a shame that LG didn't get their act together with phones. I think it was mostly a missed advertising thing though agree with others that they kept adding wacky stuff that wasn't necessarily useful. The Wing being an example of something that should have been better vetted before going into production. Whereas the V60 is just a solid phone with an optional second screen that is fun but not a necessary to make it a decent contender.

YUKI93, 17 May 2021I'm not sure if the Velvet 2 Pro would have a better s... moreI do think it'll be way better than the Velvet as it's S888 vs S765G, but just received a new rumor that the Velvet 2 Pro will also not have Quad DAC just the its predecessor.

I'm not sure if the Velvet 2 Pro would have a better spec than the Velvet 5G since there is no single mention about the specs, let's put it that way.

GorillaPhone, 17 May 2021Still waiting on that promise LG.. We need android 11 then ... moreThey will keep that update promise... but the bigger issue is how long it will take, I'm sure that aside from the Wing/Velvet most of these phones will get next android update in Q4 at earliest.

Better than nothing? Maybe...
