I wanted to talk about this baby before it goes uh. This is the lg v60 thin q5g uh this i’ve had for about a month, and i actually it’s a phone i wanted, since it came out at the uh in 2020 and i’ve been really wanting this for a while um and let me just uh, try and Zoom out a bit that work right, uh, sorry, i was trying to zoom out there from this uh phone that i’m using just now, um, not exactly sure how it works so anyway. So what is the lg? V60 it’s a brilliant all around phone, and i feel now that, with the news that lg are not uh have are basically getting out of the smartphone market it’s rip lg that it was a good time to do a quick review, i’ve liked lg. I i think all their phones have been really interesting, really good and some better than others. Unfortunately, lg from being such a massive big company have had absolutely no idea on how to market a cell phone and, basically uh, you know the demise of the their phone business i think, is down to just they didn’t know how to market uh phones didn’t, how To price them, uh, basically didn’t know how to name them, uh there’s lots of reasons, but it comes it’s not about the hardware and really not about the um software, but this is uh. This was the problem with lg and it’s, a real shame, because they have had some brilliant phones and i have really enjoyed them.
So basically, this is the last hurrah um and i don’t have this for much longer as it is um going on. Uh it’s it’s been sold, so this is a 6.8 oled p oled screen it’s a snapdragon 865g with 8gb of ram and the hunt. This one has 128 gb of uh storage, single sim and sd card slot, the cameras 64, 13 and 0.3 uh. I think the front camera is what um 10 yep stereo speakers and, of course it has the quad dac that uh, the digital audio converter, the lg, have used in a number of their v phones and other phones for a a while. So basically, this is a brilliant, brilliant phone for powering your headphones um. You know big headphones, whatever headphones, you want. This thing will um power them and it is a an absolutely brilliant, sound, so it’s also uh. The the camera is really good for video, for it has good onboard microphones, it’s, a real good all around content creator phone. That was why i bought it uh and the only reason you know so for making videos tick tock, for i do a lot of stuff. So um for making uh youtube videos. Obviously this is just a complete all rounder for doing absolutely everything. Obviously it has an in screen fingerprint um and the only reason the only reason that i am selling this is because i had promised to buy my friends at samsung, galaxy fold, 2 and um.
I need the money to pay that and that’s. The only reason that i am selling this um from day to day use it’s totally fine there’s been a couple of week, works with it just with them and i think not liking some um applications and and uh closing them. So i did and two two. Let me just um and the score was what you would expect from that um uh snapdragon, 865 it’s 464 thousand, so i mean it’s irrelevant in in the in that on in day to day, uh use uh. This is uh. I’Ve had no problems whatsoever it’s as smooth as anything, and i have um if you are making videos. Uh there’s been a number of apps that have been pretty good if you’re, making small videos like for tick tock, whatever there’s a couple of really good apps. These days that you can get um the free version of vaidor’s uh vid mix, vibe video, and if you watch a few adverts, you can get a free template to make your video for upload to tick tock or likey whatever. So this um. Really. I will be sad to to to see it go and the reason that i’ll be doubly sad to see it go is because of this. Yes, of course, this came with the um uh dual screen case, so basically you could have. Let me show you here without the overlaid lights, so you had a case, but you also had a dual screen and uh.
You have um the option here to to fart around with uh settings. So, basically, you can be on um at one screen scrolling through your apps or youtube or whatever then checking twitter or facebook on uh, the other uh it’s, pretty cool the resolution, full hd full hd, plus same as uh the main screen and when it’s closed you Will see you have a notification light there as well um and look i’m, not a fan of cases. I don’t really like cases on phones at all, and this case makes it the heavy. So i don’t use i didn’t use it all the time. Actually, i used it at night and it’s great for um having reading a ebook on one screen, then i was just checking stuff on the other. If any messages came through, uh it’s having this uh dual screen, i think is – is really good. Just for me, for day to day use, i wouldn’t um have the cover on it’s just too heavy um, but i mean it’s, pretty cool and uh. Let me see here is um. I i just really liked it, and it was one of the the reasons um that i wanted this phone in the beginning. Let me just adjust that here and there’s. Just loads of things that you can do is really versatile to remove it. It took me a while to work this out because i thought it was quite difficult to remove the phone, but then i realized that you have to.
I should have watched youtube uh press in here, and then it comes out pretty easily so like so um now it has. A you can see here is a different type of charger. This is usbc um, but the case has some kind of like magnetic charge. It didn’t come with a charger when i got it so and the case doesn’t have a battery. I mean that would well look having a battery. Uh would have been good, but it would have made it even heavier so um. What what can you do so? I’M? Charging uh through the usbc here um. What else can i tell you about it? Um well, i’m, just be um, sad to see it go, and i might even at some point if i can find a cheap enough one i might buy the g8x. If i can find it um just because i want to have a lg phone, but i won’t get it at the moment. I really just wanted to uh. Let you know about this uh nice thing uh before i uh sold it on and the um the lucky buyer that’s not available in the middle east. Lg very few phones of lg were ever available in the middle east. This was originally locked to t mobile um. So uh lg phones, certainly in saudi, are very rare to see. So this is a rare beast indeed, and i think that the person buying this is is really lucky.
I mean it’s a it’s, an absolute beast of a phone. It feels good in the hand, it’s uh, nice and heavy and feels premium, and nobody else is going to have this phone, so you’re going to be standing out and again, as i say, if you’re watching videos, if you’re make listen to your music, if you’re making Videos you’re taking photos. This is just an all round, absolutely brilliant phone to have, and you can pick them up now with the case, probably for about five hundred six hundred dollars depending on um the condition you can maybe get them new for maybe hundred dollars more. So um it is worth it and the only thing i’m going to leave you with because um i want to just double check it. I think it got upgraded the android. Let me just check, was it 10 or 11. um. Let me see system uh about phone yeah, so this was upgraded to android 11, so um, okay, so you might. We might only be getting security patches now um, which is fine. I mean android, 11 there’s a lot of phones that probably never even get android 11. So i don’t, i don’t, really have a problem with that: um i’ll, just um. Let you have one more look of the lg v60 thin q 5g. There. It is.
