CptPower, 20 May 2020LG is kinda funny. Even for half the price i can find a lot better devices for sale. For 280... moreCan you post those reasonable price models you are talking about? And "complete specs and feature" as well to see what they and the Velvet have and do not have.
Calicored, 20 May 2020You see a lot of foreigners on here talking crap about a phone that they haven't even held!!! ... moreUh, this thing would be a killer IF they bundled the dual screen. As of now, it was priced like the better spec V60 when it was supposed to be the cheaper replacement for it in Korea.
Most of its ads focus on its looks and color only.
So they not releasing the V60 in Asia, only this mid range Velvet.
It's almost the same price, why do Korean companies do these things.
I would never buy a Samsung phone, because of a similar policy. The US and maybe Chine get Snapdragon chips while everyone else gets exynos, just look at the performance scores , but they charge the same if not more!!! Now LG are at it too.
Come on LG give us the choice.
You see a lot of foreigners on here talking crap about a phone that they haven't even held!!! It just came out this month!!!!!
LG is kinda funny. Even for half the price i can find a lot better devices for sale.
For 280 bucks good phone 780 for this is too much.
LG is no reasonable brand to pull the market.
NeonHD, 16 May 2020Jeeez, I don't get why this phone is getting all the hate. It's a pretty great phone and bring... moreThe price is comparable to pocophone f2 pro/ redmi k30 pro which has snapdragon 865 while LG velvet has snapdragon 765g, and other spec is good but the pricing makes some of the fan goes nut, the lg velvet price is almost the same as the lgv60 thinq or it is more expensive than the lg g8 at the early launch which has snapdragon 855 and flagship specs, then do you ask why this phone get all the hate? Fool
You are best at all. But not in phone making. Reason other brands overtaking you. So try to make something more advanced than others. Examples- more battery capcity,xray camera,visible inner body,bend like paper,full 100% display,invisible camera,leica lens,gaming....etc..etc..

Anonymous, 17 May 2020If LG uses nearly stock ROM like experience (oneplus UI) then it has a high chance to survive.... moreI wonder what would happen if all android smartphones in the world used stock Android. It will be more like having ice-creams in just one vanilla flavor... again and again.
I like LG UI and I also like OnePlus UI. And I absolutely love the difference in approach in UI in both differentiating each other. It's like having ice-creams of different flavors. To each his own.
48 MP proven sony sensor. Straight and no curve design like sony. Water proof is essential during covid because I always wash my LG G7 ThinQ whenever I am back to my home. I like it.
If LG uses nearly stock ROM like experience (oneplus UI) then it has a high chance to survive. LG become useless because of its Custom ROM.

This is great, but I use my phone for business and not everyone who texts me is in my contact list. If I’m going away, there’s no way to auto-reply to those not in the contact list. So new clients either get ignored or my vacation is spent responding to texts! thanks for this knowledge you have shared for us. i always appreciate any news i can get about my LG devices
Jeeez, I don't get why this phone is getting all the hate. It's a pretty great phone and brings both IP68 water resistance and MIL-spec from LG's V lineup (perhaps that's where its name "velvet" came from).
And finally, it ACTUALLY looks decent! I wouldn't say original, but it's such a sight for sore eyes when compared to all the other bland uninspired phone designs of today. MUCH better than the banal looking V60.
Imaging eating the same thing over and over again, that's what it feels like every time I look at the V60.
The pricing is too much. With that kind of specs and the design is nothing special. To make it worse they will just ended up with more loss in this product. I have LG G7 and the only thing I complain is the camera.
