LG V40 ThinQ flaunts 5 cameras, a big screen and a headphone jack

Phones
At a New York launch event LG unveiled the V40 ThinQ. It's 3rd premium phone of the year, next to the V35 ThinQ and G7. Right away you'll notice that the most eye-catching about the V40 is that it has a total of 5 cameras. Three rear-facing cameras and two front-facing cameras. The rear setup includes a 12 MP STANDARD LENS with optical image stabilization, a 16 MP WIDE ANGLE LENS, and a 12 MP TELEPHOTO LENS with 2X zoom. With these two other cameras, you can take a photo with a wide field of view so you could fit more content in each frame And you can also take dramatic bouquet style portraits. Speaking of portraits, the V40 has a bunch of lighting tools, too. Similar to the iPhone, which adds studio like qualities to your photos. One tool, called triple shot, takes a picture on all three cameras with a single tap of the shutter. It saves it as three separate images, as well as A moving GIF. There's also CineShot, which enables you to make hypnotizing animated cinemagraphs that you can share. On the front are a five megapixel and an eight megapixel camera. Together, they take portrait shots as well. And you could adjust the background blur after you take a photo. You'll also get Google Lens to look up objects and landmarks. And native AI features that optimize camera settings. Besides the camera the V40 has a sizeable six point four inch display a water resistant design a headphone jack and a Google assistant shortcut button which you can't reprogram to launch anything else unfortunately. If you love photography the V40 is worth considering for it's shooting options and high end specs. But if you're more of a casual user, the phone can be a bit overwhelming. There are two AI systems baked in here, for instance. And you may end up using some tool, like Cinashot, only once in awhile. Also, when it comes to image quality, a phone, like the iPhone XS Max, takes comparable, and at times superior, photos. But it's more straight forward to use. Lastly, keep in mind that other Android phones including the Pixel 3 and OnePlus 6 T are expected right around the corner. So if you can wait a bit, then weigh all your options until after October.
