This is one of the few high-end phones with a headphone jack, and it’s paired with a digital-to-analog converter, so music going to your corded headphones sounds fantastic. Bluetooth audio also sounds nice with the AptX codec support.
LG’s V60 ThinQ isn’t the flashiest phone, but it gets the job done. It has the same Snapdragon 865 processor as some of our high-end picks, so you get great performance, the 5,000-mAh battery can stay alive for two days on a single charge, and there’s a huge 6.8-inch screen, which is actually a little too big. At least the OLED’s quality is excellent and bright.
The improved dual-camera system (main, wide-angle) can snap some reliably good photos, though it still can’t quite match the likes of the Pixel 5 or the Galaxy S20. The software experience has some quirks, and LG also doesn’t have a great track record at consistently delivering Android updates. There’s 5G support, but you can only buy this phone from a carrier—no unlocked version is available. With your purchase, you’ll get LG’s dual-screen case accessory, which is unique and lets you use two screens at the same time, but the setup is bulky, cumbersome, and not as regularly useful as you’d think.
Works on all three major US networks
