Description

The LG V40 ThinQ has all the characteristics of a high-end Android phone: from the large OLED display and glass-on-metal construction to the fast Snapdragon 845 chip and plenty of memory inside it. But its top key selling factor is the huge camera arsenal. The LG V40 has a whopping 3 cameras in the rear for shooting regular, super wide-angle, and 2x optical zoom photos. Two more cameras at the front let you switch between standard and super wide-angle selfies.

Displaybenchmark

  • Display size:
    • 6.4 inches
  • Resolution:
    • 1440 x 3120 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 537 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

    • P-OLED
  • Screen-to-body ratio:

    Screen-to-body ratio - Shows what part of the frontal area of a phone its screen occupies.

    • Specifications:
      • Aperture size:

        Aperture size - The aperture of a camera is the opening through which light travels before it reaches the camera sensor. The smaller the number is, the bigger this opening is, allowing for more light to pass.

        F1.5; Focal length:

        Focal length - The lower (shorter) the focal length number, the wider the shot will be. Conversely, longer focal length cameras produce narrower frames, which can be used for telephoto (zoomed-in) purposes.

        27 mm; Sensor size:

        Sensor size - A bigger camera sensor is able to capture more light, and thus produce better photos.

        1/2.6"; Pixel size:

        Pixel size - The size of an individual pixel on a camera's sensor. The bigger, the better.
