LG has had its share of ups and downs in the smartphone business, and the company hasn’t made much of an impact in the market lately. The company’s phones have never shied away from taking chances, even if not all of them clicked. It was one of the first companies to feature a flagship with a Quad HD display, introduced a unique rear-button layout, and experimented in modularity with the LG G5.
Apart from solid flagship offerings, LG has robust mid-range and entry-level portfolios, with options along on the price spectrum. It has something for everybody. Here is a roundup of some of the best LG phones you can buy!
Best high-end LG phone: LG V40 ThinQ
The V40 is LG’s latest and greatest smartphone from the OEM. Its biggest feature is the triple camera setup on the back with a standard 12MP lens, a 16MP wide-angle lens, and a 12MP telephoto lens. The flagship also sports two cameras on the front, allowing you to add the bokeh effect to selfies.
In addition to being camera-focused, the device was also designed for music lovers. Not only does it have a headphone jack, which is slowly becoming a thing of the past, it also has a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC for improved audio quality.
The V40 is a large device, sporting a 6.4-inch QHD+ display with a notch. Like many other 2018 flagships, it packs a Snapdragon 845 and 6GB of RAM under the hood. The battery comes in at 3,300mAh, making it quite a bit smaller than the ones of the Galaxy Note 9 and Huawei P20 Pro — both have a 4,000mAh battery. The phone is up for pre-order in the U.S. and will set you back $950.
