LG V60 ThinQ 5G
By itself, the V60 ThinQ is a fascinating exercise in compromise. To get its price under $1,000 (the current standard for a flagship), LG went with a lower-resolution screen, fewer rear cameras and less RAM than it rivals. That sounds like a great way to build a mediocre smartphone, but these compromises are easy to live with. Chances are you’ll wind up with a free dual-screen case too. Calling this thing polished would be a stretch, but if you’re willing to put in the work, it can be a very useful add-on. All told, the V60 offers solid performance, plus some of the best battery life we’ve seen so far this year, all for less money than competing devices. It’s still a little rough around the edges, but it’s nothing if not a good deal.
- Fantastic battery life
- Flagship performance at a discount
- It has a headphone jack!
- Beautiful screen (even if it’s only 1080p)
- Bulky and dated redesign
- Dual screen can be finicky
- LG’s software needs an overhaul

It's one of the most affordable 5G phones available now and the Dual Screen cover makes it one of the most productive too.Android Authority80Stepping forward and sideways at the same timeThe LG V60 is perhaps the best V series phone to reach the market in years. This too-huge phone has unbeatable battery life, a refreshed design, a flexible camera arrangement, and a headphone jack. Despite these strengths, competing phones best it in camera quality, display quality, and software experience. The V60's ace up the sleeve is its price, which is hundreds less than the competition.phoneArena90LG V60 ThinQ ReviewThe LG V60 ThinQ is an all-around strong performer and a great alternative to the Galaxy S20 for the majority of users. That formidable blend of excellent performance, battery life, and value may be exactly what the market—and LG—needs.G Style80LG's Newest Flagship Is Near Perfect and Priced RightA lot of similarly spec’d devices are way up there in price now and I think you get a lot more for your money with this LG V60, especially since you’re also getting the Dual Screen and this phone still has an audio jack. It’s a bargain compared to much of what’s out there and based on my time with it so far, it shouldn’t be overlooked.Android Central70Most of a Galaxy S20+, for hundreds lessThe LG V60 doesn't stand out in one specific area, but is instead a well-rounded flagship phone at a competitive price point. It's very large, and has software and a display that feel stuck in the past, but those are marginal issues. Elsewhere the phone looks and feels good, has incredible battery life, capable cameras, a headphone jack and a full spec sheet. There's great value here for under $1000.HotHardware70Dual Display, Almost FlagshipTo sum things up, the V60 ThinQ offers a solid value for the price, strong performance and great battery life. Unfortunately, LG needs to do better to differentiate its flagship devices from competing products that, while more expensive, also offer more capabilities and higher-end features.DroidLife70Uninspiring 5G Smartphone for the Niche CrowdI’m trying to be positive, but I can’t think of a single time I’d recommend this phone. Maybe if you need some manual camera controls and you absolutely have to have the best audio on a smartphone, but besides that, this phone feels so lacking and uninspiring that I assume it will fade into oblivion like all of LG’s other phones from the past 3-4 years.Neowin90LG V60 ThinQ 5G reviewI think that this is one of the best Android smartphones to buy right now, and you should definitely get the bundle with the Dual Screen. But also, if LG is reading this, please just make us a dual-screen phone.Digital Trends60Falling short of flagship qualityThe LG ThinQ V60 5G has a massive battery and unique dual screen case, but poor software and mediocre design holds it back.
