i haven't seen anything worse than lg this is such a funny move, lg needs to be aware that it has not made anything better since the lg g4, which most people confirm ,,, they are all farther from something more serious, i dont know if their designers are following the trends ?? And what do new phones look like ,,, I find this ridiculous I wouldn't even pay 100s for something like this, dual ,,,,,funny ;))))))

ipolit.matveich, 18 Dec 2019Very strange proposal. Maybe good for gaming, but I really canno... moreI definitely can see real life applications with that accessory.

- Emulate traditional book reading. Two pages at one time? Why not.
- Simultaneous usage of two different app side-by-side without any resizing whatsoever. And since this is still a smartphone shape, the app will act like a legit smartphone. If this is a Samsung Galaxy Fold, the app has to be optimized for large screen which is a faff to redevelop it.
- Nintendo DS and 3DS emulation. In fact, it's mobile gaming in general as you can use one of the screens as the gamepad.
- Mini laptop? Why not, Office apps on one screen, full screen keyboard on one another.

You definitely wouldn't understand the whole point of dual screen smartphone until you have personally tried it out. I was lucky enough to feel the dual screen experience with the ZTE Axon M, and it was definitely worth it! I know the screen is not symmetrical or identical to one another, but would I buy this over the Samsung Galaxy Fold? Absolutely YES!

So this phone is for how much for USD? I dont see anything special about this phone other than.. acutally nothing. lol LG phones still crappy. Please stick to creating TV and ACs..

I think its retarded. Why 2 screens ..?? To watch 2 different movies at the same time..?? Feel the need for 2 screens like you have at work now..??

  • Nickname GSM

So at WHAT point do smartphones become more like mini TV's rather than a PHONE as they were intended ..??
Oh thats right, Millennials don't have TV's, they watch TV on their phone... Great way to get hand cancer ...

Anonymous, 19 Dec 2019Because the default pics are as good as night mode. Why do you ... moreWe use night mode to see more things in the photos for dimmed environments. I don't see what so artificial about that? Furthermore, you still have the choice of using regular mode if you prefer more realistic photos. That's why the Night mode is there for a reason. However, LG is not leveraging that.

Really hope LG can improve on their software updates and advertising strategy. Other than that, this phone is a great deal.

It is definitely an underestimated phone. LG should advertise more for this phone I think, it deserves to reach consumers who mostly only think only 2 brands exist.

It has all possible features, it does everything well or very well, it has a dual screen unique option, it's cheaper than its competitors and it gets a 4.2?!? Confusing

No more QUAD-DAC in this phone?

Why do you want more unnecessary brightness and make the pictures look artificial?

  • jhony

it's amazing to read new tech and their features like this, thanks a lot for this nevertheless in my young days the only good feature was auto call recorder but now new things, tech, and features change our lives thanks again for this

LG should update android OS 10 in v30+ thinq dual sim (h930ds). thankyou.

The Night View is practically useless. When we use Night View / Night Mode, we want to see much brighter photos. What's the point of using the Night View when the photos are just as dark as the regular mode?!

  • Duke1

Sounds a fantastic device.
I like that they have kept the headphone jack, SD Csrd and FM Radio as well.

I think Ill be replacing my iPad mini with this and use the second screen when at home.

Nice one.

GSM Arena gives all the credit they could in entire article, which I think this phone deserved!

LG had fracked up soo many times in the past nobody wants their phones no more. And V50 is what V40 should have been....!!

I hope they make excellent G9 and V60 in 2020, the year of revolutionary Galaxy and iPhone...

Something better than this will come out in a year. It's called Microsoft Surface Duo.

Right thinking with wrong implementation, second screen size above 10" with a full feature Linux operation system running connected wirelessly to the panel?
