iNdo, 27 Feb 2020Wireless charging?Yes
this is it, this is the one I've been waiting for, I am using the iphone 11 pro max to tide me over until this comes out....excited about it ..dac and headphone jack most important and the big battery for a bonus.
For 1000euros,in Europe, I`m not sure LG can compete with other flagships,even with several additional displays in the retail box...will even forget about LG`s OS reputation,updates....
$999 for an fhd+ 60Hz display with a notch and no telephoto lens? Hard pass

Headphone jack fanboys doesn’t that Apple, one plus and Samsung removed head phone jack in fever of bigger vibration motor aka better haptic feed back that start with note 10 plus one of the best haptic feed back and keyboard of any android phone.
Slightly ugly face, lack of telephoto, questionable UD fingerprint sensor compared to reliable side fingerprint sensor and the somewhat too big size push me toward the Sony, but if this is really below $1000 with that screen accessory, I could only say that it's a good deal.
Unremarkable, expensive phone from LG as usual though. Dated, boring design ("fat" copy of S10+ from the back, uglier copy of P30 at the front), big & bulky with low res screen for this size, ugly bezels with revolting teardop notch (I'd prefer wide Mate 30's one to this), no 120Hz acreen, no UFS3.0, subtle changes compared to previous model. No, thanks!
It has a top and bottom bezel larger than the S20 and in addition to that it has a notch instead of a punch hole camera.
It has a 60Hz 1080p panel which is a joke for 2020 flagship when last year's flagships already had better displays. The only good thing about it is that it's pretty big at 6.8".
Big 5000mAh battery is good, camera seems good but nothing Earth shattering like the S20 and especially the S20 Ultra, barring the focusing issue.
You also have to suffer through LG's terrible software and slow updates. But you do get a gimmicky dual screen accessory that's included making the phone pricier than it should. G8X was $700 and released pretty late in 2019, this has the 865 which is almost 2x the price of 855 in 2019 because of the forced 5G modem and releases earlier so expect $800-900 for the V60. Like all LG phones expect this to fall in price by half in a few months because their phones never keep value and are a pretty bad purchase in that regard.
Again, a complete joke of a flagship from LG. They're easily the most garbage OEM right now that still releases phones. Just wait for a sale and get the S20 or get the OnePlus 8 or 8 Pro when it releases in a few months. It's not like the V60 is available to purchase yet. If you're fine with S855 even last year's flagships are better and much cheaper also.
I am a little concerned that I don't see and "MQA-compatible" note or "Tuning by Meridian Audio" on any of the materials I have seen yet. That MQA DAC is a real differentiator for those of us who really like music.
Which sensor is LG using for the main Camera?
Where are all the guys who were complaining about Samsung pricing for flagships??
It's clear now that other manufacturers like Sony, Realme, Xiaomi, LG also doing the same.
One last thing, there is an error in the article, it says "premium", I think you meant "fragile". Just hate reviewers describing glass backs as premium. They're tosh.

Anonymous, 26 Feb 2020This shows that you can never please anyone. It has a 3.5mm jack, the one thing everyone cries... moreBe honest though, there are many areas of this phone that leave techies wanting. Screen is ok for me, but not really top end. Cameras are likely to be ok, rather than great. Size, is niche, at best. Bizarre in my book. Battery is a win, so no complaints. LG used to be poor with updates, and need to improve. Looks, well we rarely see a phone that has a majority of positive s when it comes to looks. Personally, the iPhone 11 max looks great to me. Horse for courses. The notch, again, I'm ok with, but I'd prefer it without, and most would be vocal about this. Audio, wow, LG have borrowed the zoom sound from HTC, nice work. They have a DAC and a jack. These are real positive moves. Hope the reviewers rave about the audio prowess, be nice to see them get credit where it is due.
This device is nice okay, but if it is over $ 700, it has no value. Hopefully they don't plan to offer it with a price tag of over $ 700.
Anonymous, 26 Feb 2020Awesome!! Nice LG, V60 is perfect! I'd disagree, but for you it may be. The height, goodness me. Anecdotally, I would have to say that less than 1% of people, that mention phone size issues, are asking for them to be taller. See loads though that mention wanting a compact (S10e) sized device with solid specs. Surely LG must have a flagship compact device? And what on earth is the sense in offering the 2nd screen for free? At least offer it cheaper without. Such a clanger to drop.
