LG V40 vs Galaxy Note 9 vs iPhone XS Max
We start October on a high note with the fresh announcement of the LG V40, the company's brand new fall flagship. Aside from building on top of the already strong foundation established by the LG V30, V35, and the G7 ThinQ, the LG V40 has the tough task of withstanding the overwhelming pressure coming for either Apple's and Samsung's camps, who pulled nearly perfect fall flagships with the Galaxy Note 9 and iPhone XS/XS Max, respectively.

How does the V40 ThinQ stack up against those, however?

Rest assured LG has defaulted to only the most powerful internals for its fall flagship (fallship?), which directly pits it against the Galaxy Note 9. Of course, the iPhone XS Max with its outlandish performance advantage would also be a super tough nut to crack, but the V40 has something that none of the aforementioned devices possess - a triple-camera setup at the back, making up for a rather interesting conversation starter.
