Kicking off #phonepocalypse this past week, LG officially unveiled the V40 ThinQ. Being the South Korean company’s ultra-premium flagship for 2018, we decided to ask you in this week’s poll if you would rather spend your hard-earned money on LG’s new smartphone or instead buy Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9. Taking a look at both phones, you won’t see many differences as far as specs are concerned. Both flagships come with a premium OLED display, are powered by the Snapdragon 845 CPU, 6GB of RAM (8GB for some Note 9 models), Android Oreo, and feature a high-quality glass and metal build.The key differences the between the two include the Galaxy Note 9’s larger battery, two additional cameras on the V40 ThinQ, the inclusion of Samsung’s S Pen, and LG’s 32-bit quad DAC.

It's not unusual for kernel source codes to be published before phones/updates even debut, but just two days after LG took the wraps off of the V40, the kernel source code for various models has already been published. Five variants of the V40 (LMV405) are listed on LG's OpenSource Code Distribution site: TA, TAB, TM, TMB, and TS. The file names remind us that this brand-new $1,000 flagship ships with Oreo, which is a shame. Each file comes in at over 200MB. If you're a developer and you're looking to make some custom ROMs or recoveries for the V40, you may want to check these out.

LG is playing for keeps. Its LG V40 ThinQ boldly slams the weight of five (five!) cameras against Apple's iPhone XS Max and Samsung's Galaxy Note 9.This supersize phone for 2018 isn't holding back, but competition is cutthroat. The LG V40 must contend with big, premium phones from Apple, Samsung and Huawei on the high end. Meanwhile, these $1,000 phones are feeling pressure from cheaper-but-good phonemakers like OnePlus and Motorola. And on Oct. 9, the LG V40 will see even more competition when Google (likely) unveils the Pixel 3. The LG V40 has its work cut out for it. The phone has a lot to like: those three lenses on the back (Huawei's P20 Pro made that craveable earlier this year) and two on the front, plus oodles of camera features to put all those lenses to work. There's a large, bright screen, a cutting-edge processor, waterproofing, wireless charging and stereo speakers. While we've now reviewed the LG V40, Galaxy Note 9 and iPhone XS Max, we … [Read more...] about iPhone XS Max vs. Galaxy Note 9 vs. LG V40 ThinQ: Camera, storage, battery, price
