LG V60 review: Shifting timelines
This is typically the time of year when LG announces its G series phones, which compete directly with Samsung’s Galaxy S series and Huawei’s P series. Instead, LG trotted out a refresh to its media focused V series months earlier than usual. LG has remained mum on the fate of the G series, though rumors suggest it’s being downgraded from full flagship status or even completely abandoned.
Whatever coque princesse disney iphone 7 the fate of the batman symbol iphone 5 5s se coque cover G, the V60 is up against some serious competition. Samsung’s trio of Galaxy S20 phones are powerful, camera focused beasts. And though we may still have some misgivings about the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, Google’s phones still offer the best overall camera results. LG also has to contend with Apple’s well crafted iPhone 11 series, Huawei’s P40 series, and Motorola’s rumored return to the flagship space.
The optional Dual Screen accessory, which allows the V60 to offer some of the benefits of a folding phone, definitely helps set the phone apart from its competitors. Is it enough to convince buyers LG is the way to go
Design: Changing things up. Kinda
LG recycled its conservative designs for several years. The G7 and G8, and the V40 and V50, for example, were nearly identical devices year over year. Thankfully, this year LG made some welcome updates to its coque iphone 6 verre de vin artcorekirbies33553 design language. coque protege ecran iphone 7 While the V60 does carry over many basic hardware elements from its predecessors, it is at the very least wearing some new clothes.
The V60 comes in two colorways: white and blue. Where the white model has silver accents, the blue variant has copper accents. Both are improvements over the solid black/blue of the V40 and V50. The blue and copper model, in particular, has a handsome look to it that provides some personality. Sometimes a little personality goes a long way.
LG went with the glass sandwich approach. The front and rear coque iphone 7 plus goyard panels are solid glass, and are separated by a metal frame. On our white review unit, the metal is bare and features a polished chamfer that catches the light. coque p smart 2019 huawei coque pour iphone 6 guess artcorekirbies32133 It’s a little Phone Design 2016, but I think it is elegant in its simplicity. The white glass is multi hued and has a bluish, wintry cast to it. I have no reservations about the quality of the coque iphone 6 alfa romeo artcorekirbies35320 materials or the manner in coque iphone 7 the flash dc which they are assembled. coque silicone iphone 6s pas cher artcorekirbies31418 It’s a high quality piece of hardware.
I hope you like big phones: The V60 is taller and wider than the already too big S20 Ultra.
I hope you like big phones, because the LG V60 is absolutely gargantuan. It’s noticeably taller and wider than the already too large Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. There is a saving grace here: the V60 weighs 6g less than the coque telephone iphone 6 lapin artcorekirbies30689 weighty S20 Ultra, and this is obvious when you hold them side by side. It may not be much, but it’s something. Otherwise, the V60 is a handful. When inserted into the Dual Screen accessory, the V60 borders on mini laptop size. Unwieldy is a word I would use to describe it.
Taking a quick mike tyson 2 iphone 5 5s coque cover spin around the hardware, the V60 covers the basics and then some. The front glass is almost perfectly flat and features only the slightest curve where it tucks into the metal frame. The rear glass is much more rounded along the edges. You’ve got separate volume buttons on the left edge, as well as a dedicated Google Assistant button. The screen lock / power key is on the right edge. All four keys offer perfect travel and feedback. The combo SIM / microSD card tray is on top, and the USB C port, 3.5mm headphone jack, and downward firing speaker are all positioned on the bottom edge.
If there’s one final thing about the hardware that I appreciate, it is the camera module. Rather than paste a big ugly square onto the rear panel, LG kept its horizontal line of lenses running from side to side. Where the cameras were flush on the V40 and V50, the module is raised slightly on the V60. It comes across as far more tasteful and elegant than blemishes on the backs of the S20, iPhone 11, P40, and Pixel 4.
Last, the phone is rated IP68 for protection against water and dirt.
The LG V60 may not be setting the design world on fire, but it’s not dousing it in cold water either.
Display: Double the pleasure
Unlike its competitors, the V60′s display doesn’t adopt any fancy new technology. You won’t find a high refresh rate, nor even Quad HD resolution. Nay, the V60′s 6.8 inch pOLED carries forward Full HD+ resolution at 2,460 by 1,080 pixels for a 20.5:9 aspect ratio. Pixel density is just , which is decidedly lower than the 540ppi of the S20 series. The standard refresh rate surprises me more so than the resolution. With Google, OnePlus, Samsung, and other manufacturers adopting 90Hz and 120Hz panels, the V60′s 60Hz screen comes across as rather stiff. That said, it’s still a fine screen.
LG has always made good screens and I have no real complaints about the V60′s panel. (Okay, except for the bezels.) The pixels are large enough that individual pixels remain hidden even upon close inspection. Color accuracy looks goods, meaning whites look white and colors appear rich. There’s only the slightest blue shift when you tilt the phone at an angle.
The S20′s screen looks more brilliant than the V60′s when the two are held next to one another.
LG claims that the screen pumps out 500nits when it comes coque de telephone iphone 6 silicone artcorekirbies36024 to brightness. It is certainly bright enough to use outdoors under a sunny sky. coco guitar iphone 5 5s se coque cover The S20′s screen, however, looks more brilliant when the two are held next to one another.
Oddly, LG went with a teardrop notch to make room for the selfie camera. Notches have become an outdated design choice and I’d have much preferred to see a punch hole cutout for the camera. Moreover, LG’s New Second Screen software, which allows you to customize the background colors of the notification bar (and thus erase the notch) doesn’t work when the phone is set to Dark Mode. This befuddling choice means the notch is always visible in Dark Mode. C’mon LG.
The display panel of the Dual Screen is identical to the main screen. LG went with the same size, resolution, and aspect ratio to keep the experience consistent across the two. coque huawei p20 lite marbre solide It even retains the notch, even though there’s no camera on the Dual Screen (what the what). Importantly, the color balance is the same. It wasn’t on older versions of the Dual Screen, which means whites didn’t match. This time around, they do. That’s a good thing…
