2.0 out of 5 stars Good Try, LG (Just Not Good Enough)
By Johnny_Amazon® on July 9, 2020
I love LG as a brand. They make the best OLED TVs, and their LCD TVs are decent quality for very awesome prices, and they also make very good IPS monitors. I have owned 4 OLED TVs, 3 LCD TVs, and 3 monitors over the years, and besides the very cheap LCD TV which I deserved what I paid for, everything was high-quality and top-notch. I have also owned a washer before, and now I have a 2-in-1 combo washer/dryer which for some reason no companies bring to the US, but is pretty much the norm in Asia. To be honest, all the cool tech are in Asia. Companies make bolder decisions and try more out-of-the-box products there. Anyways, I have also owned about 10 LG phones over the years, starting from clamshells back in the early 2000's. But my very last LG phone was the V20 because by then, there were no more innovation and nothing to make me loyal to the brand, besides the awesome DAC found in the V series phones. They didn't make bold decisions anymore, like curved-edge screens or OLED panels, etc. Although the ultra-wide camera was their idea from way back, and now Samsung is stealing all that thunder and making like it was from them that other companies started including that. Remember, you owe the ultra-wide camera trend to LG.

Anyways, so I wouldn't have even bought this camera if I didn't find it on sale for $450, because frankly, at even $600 new I wouldn't have bought this phone. Just the phone itself is quite a decent phone, with an OLED screen and excellent performance. However, LG has fallen so far off the radar that doing something just that is not good enough anymore. Just look at Sony. Their new Xperia I Mark II series phone has a revolutionary camera set-up, and no one is batting an eye because they too have fallen far off the map. Nowadays, besides Samsung and Apple(and Huawei had China not turned into such a fascist state), small companies such as Oppo, Xiaomi, OnePlus, etc. are only making marks because not only do they try things no other companies are doing, but they first got in the game buy making the prices cheap. Now that they got in the door, they are raising their prices, which is fair because their quality is now proven. However, once-established companies are now facing the problem in reverse - they can no longer rely on their brand name to justify their prices. Consumers no longer care about the companies' image(especially young consumers who even more so voice their opinions through their wallets), so a $1200 Sony phone and a $800 LG phone just aren't going to fly anymore.

Actually, for $800, this LG phone MIGHT have worked, with their shortcomings as a faux foldable phone and all, had the dual-screen component been practical. The dimensions of the phone itself are fine - not too big. But once you put it into the dual-screen case, the added bulk and weight makes you not want to use it anymore. It adds about a centimeter all around, to the height, width, and girth, and feels like another pound more. I know the case needs some circuitry for the accessory screen to work, but if this is the final implementation, then it just simply is not good enough. It is not ready for the spotlight, not ready for primetime. This feels more like an experiment(which it isn't since the V60 now also has it as well). The nicest thing I can say is, get this phone if you work from home and have a nice desk to sit and work at. Because I did not want to carry it around or put it in my pockets.

The dual screen functionality is only to use two apps at a time. You cannot extend it to one big screen, which is a big letdown. So although the extra app idea is a bonus, in execution, I found out that I rarely needed or wanted it. Holding it with the extra screen attached always felt like you were holding two contraptions. With all its faults, even the lowly ZTE Axom M felt like a whole phone. The only saving grace is you can use it as a stand for hands-free use for when viewing YouTube, movies, etc. I have tried this in the shower with a Cold Fusion or Company Man YouTube videos, and that was a good experience. However, because the actual phone half of the screen is much thicker and heavier than the extra screen portion, you can only set it down with the extra screen side up, which defeats its use solely as a stand, and thus you need to have both screens on for it to be used as a stand.

Do you remember the Nintendo 3DS? Well, this phone in more ways than one reminds me of that. Overall, a good try, but in the end, like the 3D functionality, it is no more than a gimmick you rarely used, and end up only using the phone by itself. I always try to stand up for LG. I always feel like it's always looked down upon as the inferior younger brother, to the shiny sibling on a pedestal that is Samsung. If prices and features were simliar, I would try to choose in favor or LG over other brands. However, in this case, I cannot recommend this phone. The cameras are really good, the OLED screen is bright, saturated, and beautiful, the tiny waterdrop notch makes the screen almost completely all-screen, and the phone is zippy and feels just like any other flagship 2019 phone. However, in a sea of the current phone climate, nothing about it stands out. To be honest, I think the G line needs to be put to pasture to retire. It's time for LG to move on to cheaper phones and win back the hearts of consumers who have since moved on to other phones. Otherwise, I feel they will be another Nokia or Microsoft, and will soon be completely irrelevant in the phone space. I really want LG to be back in the game, but this is not it. However, the recent news of its rollable phone patents sound delightfully scrumptious, and I can't wait to see some actual renders. This might be finally be the "it" phone LG so desperately needs. Good luck, LG!

If this was a standalone phone for $600, I would give it three stars. With the dual screen for another $200, I cannot give it more than two stars. If you can find it(with the dual screen) used in "Very Good" or better condition for under $500, then it deserves three stars.
