LG took a unique approach to foldable smartphones with its LG G8X ThinQ. While Samsung and Huawei were looking at flexible screens that could unfold to turn a smartphone into a tablet, LG simply slapped on a case with a second display to double the screen real estate you get. This had a few advantages, such as cost saving and the lack of a complex mechanism which made the G8X ThinQ a lot less delicate than folding phones. Now, the company has taken this approach yet again with the LG Velvet, also known as the LG Velvet 4G in international markets. The Velvet is a little different from the LG G8X ThinQ, which it's inspired by, but does it offer the same kind of value? Check out my review to find out.

LG Velvet Summary

The LG Velvet is the spiritual successor of the LG G8X ThinQ. It sports a big 6.8-inch display with a 20.5:9 aspect ratio. Just like the LG G8X ThinQ, the LG Velvet also has a dual screen accessory that enables dual screen functionality. The LG Velvet is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor which is slightly dated at this point. LG has paired the processor with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. You do have the option to expand storage but it comes at the cost of the second SIM slot since the smartphone has a hybrid SIM slot. 

The LG Velvet has a triple camera setup at the back consisting of a 48-megapixel primary camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 5-megapixel depth sensor. For selfies, it has a 16-megapixel selfie shooter positioned in the dewdrop notch at the front. The camera performance is very good and the smartphone is capable of clicking some very good photos in different lighting conditions. The air on the phone is quick to recognise what it is pointed to words and in lowlight, the Night mode is very useful in order to extract more detail out of the image. Very good and the smartphone is capable of clicking some very good photos in different lighting conditions. The AI on the phone is quick to recognise what it is pointed towards. In lowlight, the Night mode helps the smartphone capture better details.

Smartphone performance is good but considering it has a dated processor it isn’t as powerful as some of the recent smartphones in the market. The dual screen accessory is useful especially if you are into multitasking. The 4300mAh battery is good enough to provide about a day and a half worth of battery life. However, it does not have a fast charger bundled in the box. There is support for Quick Charge 3 support and you can buy a compatible charger to enable fast charging.
