If anything, it's me who needs to beg for apologies for sounding a bit too harsh when explaining. I just wanted to push my point in a way that the other people would take it for granted.
But yeah, the team must've forgotten to put a bit more details in the audio part, but that's maybe because its loudspeaker isn't really a highlight of this phone, and so it doesn't really need an in-depth analysis of it.

This is just the same trick of U11.
Stereo is cobination of two channels. Something v40 lacks
Battery life is stellar as well. While it's not quite as robust as the 4,000mAh Note 9 or even the 3,500mAh Galaxy S9+, the V40 makes the most of its 3,300mAh battery, easily powering through a full day. I couldn't get an accurate benchmark rating due to compatibility issues with PCMark's software, but real-world results were quite good. On some days it even gave those phones a run for their money. You could chalk it up to the usual year-over-year improvements, but it also speaks to LG's focus with the V40. With the same battery capacity as the V30, LG has managed to squeeze noticeably more life with the V40, and it runs circles around the G7. Test pcworld.
Anonymous, 17 Nov 2018Mono speaker again. Its stereo but since the earpiece is not loud enough they sticked to mono speaker in official spec something mate20pro didnt and its earpiece "2nd speaker" is also very quiet and tiny sound. There you have 1000eur phone with no stereo speakers.

They might not be impressed because of how basic it sounds, but isn't anything bad as to the point of being a disappointment.
Besides, they didn't really imply that the speaker is bad by any means.
PapaRafe, 18 Nov 2018How's P20 Pro audio compared to V30 HiFi Quad DAC?
My deal breaker of V30 was selfie camera... moreV30 has a 3.5mm jack and even has the ability to output audio through USB C and BT 5.0. That's enough to make it superior already.
If the presence of Hi-Fi Quad DAC doesn't impress you, then maybe you'd appreciate the significantly more powerful amp instead.
And talking about phablets, the Mate 20 Pro is better at everything than the V40 ThinQ, except in the area where its opponent is known for; great audio quality!
If you're after the solid all-rounder, the Note 9 is still the one to beat. You'd only miss out the super wide angle lens, but you'd be hard pressed to find a major deal breaker on it.
Steve, 17 Nov 2018100% agree. I had V30 and it is a great great phone

My deal breaker of V30 was selfie camera, so was the V40... 5mp lmao!
I find it strange that in the pro's and con's you say "great sounding speaker setup" yet in the loudspeaker test you seem not all that impressed? If the setup is great then it would help if you pointed that out in the loudspeaker section and explain why.

I was faithfully LG lover until G5. I still wait for good battery life LG phone and super fast charging like oppo. What are you waiting for LG? You're behind!
WHAT IS THIS!! I AM NOT HAPPY. I have been buying the LG brand of phones for years now and to finally have this one come out and now you cannot even place a SD card inside of the phone. Why would you buy the phone in 2012 when there isn't even a SD slot. For me the blackberry couldn't get any better right now the smart phone of the year, even if they came back out with the Nokia 3510F2.123 I would probably buy that over the previous model of iphones because it doesn't even have the ability for storing photos on the sim card. WHY. I JUST WANT TO BE ABLE TO STORE MY PHOTOS ON THE SIM CARD!!
Tanase Adrian, 17 Nov 2018V30 is even cheaper and is the better phone between these 2!100% agree. I had V30 and it is a great great phone
Now I swithed on Mate 20 Pro and I don't see it twice as good as V30. It is at best 10% better. But the price is more than double
V30 Great Great battery, great camera, great screen, wireless charging.... VERY GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY
BETTER THAN 6t imo

H-1, 16 Nov 2018An update might fix this issue, we just have to wait and see.Yeah, same thing happened to the HTC U11 Plus. Perhaps it's the phone needing an update, or the fact that these tests are treating endurance over time and not screen on time in the normal conventional way
