The two-year-old Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL from 2018 also use Snapdragon 845 and yet it is still blazing fast even after two major software versions update. Android 12 is definitely a no problem for them.
Rareart1, 28 Oct 2020 In that case - sperad your wings and fly to buy an lg wing.I definitely will
LGsuperFan, 29 Oct 2020LG mentions Fast charging upto '25W with direct charging'. So 4G version charges s... moreIam using LG velvet 4g with SD845 processor , bought outside india , bought a week back.previously i was using google pixel xl.. Its the most modern design from lg, you can compare it To latest flagship samsung note or sony xperia in design and build quality. A lot of research has gone in for such a slim and light weight phone carrying 4300mah battery. You wont be disappointed. Very fast and fluid. Its positioned for gaming with dual screen with support for stylus. I found it quite capable as iam a power user, SD845 will be good enough for must users.battery lasted 24 hours with heavy usage , if you are a medium user definitely will have juice for next day.its very flashy and gimmicky with vibrant colours compared to my older google pixel xl which was sober colours outside as well as in the default software, i put a cover to give me a more sober look..dual sim works great. Camera is good, a notch less than google pixel , you wont be disappointed. Comes android 10 out of the box.you can expect minimum 2yrs of android update. IP68 rated waterproof. Swipe gestures are cool.p-oled display is one of the best, 60hz refresh rate is good enough for normal users .What else you need in a phone. Yes downside is the on display finger print scanner is not accurate but not a deal breaker. Lg is quite a reliable brand. I suggest go ahead and give lg a try, its not the best, but it wont disappoint you .PS note: nobody is paying me for this review. I felt a genuinly good product should get its due credit. :)
LG mentions Fast charging upto '25W with direct charging'.
So 4G version charges same as 5G version at 25W but with PD charger.
YUKI93, 28 Oct 2020But with Snapdragon 855, Qualcomm is pushing for 5G network. So it would be a shame to have Sn... moreNope, you were wrong. SD855 don't have 5G modem integrated to SOC. It started only from SD865 to have integrated 5G Modem along with SD765. The plain SD855 is only 4G ready, not 5G ready.
Joe, 29 Oct 2020I think they're just cutting costs by going with the older gen SoC. Though the G6 was rus... moreNope, G6 story is different. I remember Qualcomm didn't shipped LG with SD835 on time. So LG moved with previous gen chip to complete its scheduled release.
The Snapdragon processor in LG wing is definitely one of the worst at the high cost, They could have done much better.

Though the G6 was rushed and thus shipped with SD821 when the SD835 was almost out so maybe they're repeating the same mistake?
Its too big a price, and the choice of now old Snapdragon 845 is confusing.
Is there actually any benefit of this chipset compared to new ones, like better data privacy or so?
PRices of LG phones are just a matter of time thing. Wait for one year and they crash like anything. But still Velvet will be outdated in a year with SD845 (not sure why they didnt consider SD855/+) so it is pointless to buy now or even after a year at low price. Secondly wing with 765G doesn't deserve more than 35k or say 40k (due to dual screen). LG needs to understand the market and its position right to succeed.

Don't be upset folks, next year we'll get both of these devices for 25k n 35k respectively in big billion days.
I think Oneplus 8 5G is much better deal in this price segment..Once again lg missed on it, this time the proccesor..And on a network 4G and 5G.....
GaushikTECH Nerd, 28 Oct 2020The Wing is a tempting deal!! In that case - sperad your wings and fly to buy an lg wing.
