LG V35 ThinQ review

It's difficult to tell the LG V35 ThinQ cell phone separated from its 2017 antecedent, the LG V30. Outwardly, they are indistinguishable, however inside there are a couple of contrasts. It acquires many parts from the moderately new LG G7 ThinQ, permitting the V35 ThinQ to remain new as a possibility for individuals who need a LG telephone without an indent. In case you're sitting tight for the following huge LG cell phone, at that point you'll need to sit tight one more month for the LG V40 — however the V35 ThinQ shouldn't be ignored. Here's the reason.

Natural DESIGN

Like Apple and Samsung, LG has discovered an outline stylish that works, and it's adhering to it (in any event until further notice). The LG V35 ThinQ, similar to the V30 before it, has a spotless and straightforward look. There are scanty bezels encompassing the screen on the front, and the entire body is enclosed by glass with an aluminum outline in the middle. We checked on the Aurora Black model, which is somewhat downplayed, but on the other hand there's a wonderful Platinum Gray release accessible through AT&T and Amazon.

On the back is the double camera sensor over a round unique mark sensor. The sensor serves as a power catch, which is something LG is moving far from as found in the LG G7 ThinQ. It's possible LG will dispose of it when the V40 comes around. The catch takes some becoming accustomed to — we weren't fans at first — yet it developed on us following a couple of days.

Indeed, even following a time of seeing a similar look from the V30, it's a brilliant looking telephone.

The left half of the telephone houses the volume rocker catches, and a USB Type-C charging port is at the base edge alongside the speaker. An earphone jack sits at the best; Samsung and LG are among the couple of enormous name cell phone brands keeping the earphone jack alive, which we're appreciative for as it makes stopping and playing music speedier and quicker with the customary 3.5mm earphone link, as opposed to managing Bluetooth earbuds that need charging.

The V35 feels great in the hand. It's not very wide to be unwieldy, nor is it so light it feels modest. Our solitary protest is the edges of the aluminum outline, which can feel somewhat sharp on occasion.

The V35 doesn't rehash cell phone plan — we'll ideally leave than for the up and coming V40 — however even following a time of seeing a similar look from the V30, it's a shrewd looking telephone.


Basically, the screen on the V35 ThinQ is dazzling. The telephone includes a 6-inch edge-to-edge OLED show with a 18:9 viewpoint proportion. The show is brilliant and sharp with a 2,880 x 1,440 show goals (538 pixels for every inch). Hues are very much soaked, and blacks are profound, with magnificent survey edges.

We do have one second thought: The about bezel-less outline implies it's very simple to contact the edges of the show. On a few events, we ended up accidentally delaying or quick sending recordings when viewing Netflix or YouTube. We needed to hold the telephone a particular method to abstain from contacting dynamic parts of the screen.


The greatest contrast between the V30 and the V35 is with the processor. The last uses the more up to date Snapdragon 845 chip from Qualcomm, which is better over the Snapdragon 835 processor found on the V30. You likewise get more RAM with the V35 — up to 6GB, which is more than the 4GB found on the more seasoned telephone.

From performing various tasks to gushing video on Netflix and Hulu, the V35 took care of the majority of our undertakings effortlessly.

We've yet to experience any execution issues. From performing various tasks to gushing video on Netflix and Hulu, the V35 took care of the majority of our undertakings effortlessly. It even figured out how to deal with designs concentrated amusements like Final Fantasy XV and PUBG Mobile like a champ.

Here are a couple of benchmarks for reference:

AnTuTu 3DBench: 260,943

Geekbench CPU: 2,436 single center; 8,489 multi-center

3DMark Sling Shot Extreme: 3,211 (Vulkan)

The Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus scores somewhat higher, however the V35 is in the more elite classes of execution, outperforming numerous different gadgets. Try not to take benchmark tests at confront esteem, however do be guaranteed when we say you won't have execution issues with this telephone.

Concerning stockpiling, there is 64GB going to play a part with around 47GB that is usable. Fortunately, on the off chance that you require more space there's a MicroSD card opening on the telephone that will enable you to grow space up to a huge 2TB.


LG has taken precisely the same setup found on the LG G7 ThinQ, and connected it to the V35. Along these lines, we've experienced similar advantages and disadvantages.

It's a double camera framework on the back with two 16-megapixel sensors. The essential focal point has a f/1.6 opening with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) for video. The auxiliary camera is a wide-edge focal point with a 107-degree field of view, alongside a f/1.9 opening.

The essential focal point produces superb photographs in great lighting conditions, with exact hues and solid subtle elements. The wide-edge focal point includes flexibility, enabling you to get some phenomenal shots that would not be conceivable on different cell phones without utilizing outsider focal points. There's a slight drop in detail with this focal point, however, and it's unquestionably perceptible when the lighting isn't incredible.

Low-light photographs can be a blended pack. We found the V35 regularly nails shading precision, yet there is frequently a ton of commotion or a noteworthy drop in detail, making photographs resemble a sketch. To help out, LG has included a mode called Super Bright Camera, which joins four pixels into one super pixel to take in more light. The outcome is a littler goals photograph, yet in a perfect world it would be better uncovered. Truly, Super Bright Camera feels like it compounds the situation: Our photographs had essentially more commotion and seemed washed out when contrasted with photographs taken with the component killed. You additionally require consistent hands to ensure the photograph isn't foggy.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 can take great low-light photographs without the need to downsize the picture goals, and we ought to expect the same from LG.

A.I. Cam — another component we've seen on the G7 ThinQ — is likewise here. It's an exceptional camera mode that utilizations computerized reasoning to perceive scenes (like a nightfall), which would then be able to streamline the camera to take the best photo. We thought that it was moderate and ailing in its outcomes, frequently conveying over-soaked pictures that we wouldn't have any desire to share. We've observed this to be the situation with most scene acknowledgment programming.

In actuality, Super Bright Camera feels like it compounds the situation.

The forward looking 8-megapixel camera completes a strong activity with selfies, however it's the Portrait Mode that keeps on astonishing us with its outcomes. The V35 figures out how to select edges around a subject generally well, and the obscure it includes behind is solid and sensible.

Since this is a V-arrangement LG telephone — it remains for video — you'll locate a similar video highlights LG appeared on the V30, for example, Point Zoom, where you can tap on a region and zoom in through a slider. There are additionally a similar 16 shading reviewing presets to change the temperament of your recordings. There's great adjustment worked in, settling on this a strong decision for videography.

The V35 has a strong camera setup, however we feel as if regardless it can't exactly contend with any semblance of the Note 9, Pixel 2, P20 Pro, and the iPhone X.


For quite a long time LG has made sound a need in its cell phones, and the LG V35 ThinQ is no special case. Notwithstanding an earphone jack and stereo speakers, the V35 ThinQ additionally incorporates a couple of heated in programming highlights.
There's both DTS:X bolster and a Hi-Fi Quad DAC. DTS:X includes 3D encompass sound when matched with outer earphones, while the Hi-Fi Quad DAC includes more full stable in general. We experimented with the two highlights and noticed an exceptional change in sound, however we observed empowering the Quad DAC to be more helpful every day. We do miss the Boombox speaker from the LG G7, however the stereo speakers here carry out the activity.

We have a guide on the most proficient method to get the most out of the LG G7 ThinQ's sound capacities, and you can tail it to get the best out of the V35 too.


The V35 ThinQ ships with Android 8.0, with the LG UX skin layered over. It's somewhat of an unexpected that LG didn't dispatch the telephone with Android 8.1, anyway you can hope to see a refresh to Android 9.0 Pie eventually.

LG's custom skin is sensible. We do like some included highlights, for example, the Floating Bar that enables you to conceal the customary Android route bar, yet LG additionally copies about six applications that are as of now heated into Android.

We tried the AT&T adaptation of the V35, which accompanies a lot of bloatware. You'll locate AT&T's typical arrangement of applications it puts on Android telephones alongside recreations and different applications you likely will never utilize. Fortunately, the vast majority of the applications can be uninstalled or impaired so you can tidy your telephone up moderately effectively.

While we didn't get our hands on the Amazon Prime Exclusive Phones version of the V35, it should convey the general variety of applications including Amazon Prime Music, Amazon Alexa, Amazon Drive, Prime Photos, Prime Now, Prime Video, Amazon Kindle, Audible, and Goodreads.

Throughout the DAY BATTERY

There's a 3,300 mAh battery on the LG V35 ThinQ, which is the same as a year ago's V30. Amid our survey period, we could control through an entire day of substantial use on the V35 ThinQ with around 35 percent battery life remaining. We expect you could eek out multi day and a half with more traditionalist use or tweaking the settings in the battery saver segment.

We expect you could eek out multi day and a half with more moderate use.

Should you end up running low on battery be that as it may, the V35 ThinQ bolsters Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0. And keeping in mind that not as quick, the V35 additionally bolsters remote charging by means of the Qi standard.


The LG V35 is accessible from an assortment of bearers and retailers including Project Fi, Best Buy, B&H, and AT&T. Costs generally begin at $900, yet Amazon is offering the telephone under its Prime Exclusive Phones pennant, which implies you can purchase the V35 for $700.

The V35 accompanies a standard one-year guarantee that covers any equipment abandons. The guarantee doesn't cover regular wear and tear or unintentional drops. You can get a second year of inclusion through the LG Second Year Promise. Just join on LG's site inside 90 long stretches of procurement to actuate the service contract.


The LG V35 ThinQ is a decent telephone that can stay aware of the opposition in relatively every way, except its camera is marginally behind.

Is there a superior option?

Indeed. The Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus are incredible choices. They have almost indistinguishable specs to the LG V35, however the cameras are exponentially better. You ought to likewise give the LG G7 a shot. It has comparable specs, however the Super Bright Display makes the screen simpler to peruse in sunshine, and we like the Boombox speakers. It's additionally less expensive.

While each of the three of these telephones highlight the best specs available, you might need to hold up half a month. Both Apple and Google are relied upon to discharge their leaders in the following couple of months that will more likely than not offer updated specs and highlights, and LG is likewise anticipated that would uncover the LG V40 in October.

To what extent will it last?

Since the LG V35 sports a Gorilla Glass 5 sandwich body, our greatest concern is shattering the telephone with a unintentional drop. In the event that you get a decent case however, the telephone ought to have the capacity to deal with a considerable lot of manhandle. You won't have to stress over inadvertently spills and dunks however, since the V35 has an IP68 rating. We expect the LG V35 should last you three to four years.

And keeping in mind that the LG V35 ships with Android 8.0, you should hope to see a refresh to Android 9.0 Pie sooner or later. In the past LG has been ease back to refresh its handsets, anyway the organization as of late opened its Software Upgrade Center in South Korea and focused on taking off brisk programming refreshes for its telephones later on.

Would it be a good idea for you to get it?

Truly, however just in the event that you can get it for $700 or less — like through Amazon — and just on the off chance that you truly require a telephone at the present time. This telephone isn't justified regardless of the $900 sticker price, and with the V40 in transit, you should hold up to check whether there will be further value drops on the V35.
