LG Velvet Review: Is this LG's Android reinvention?


Review: The LG Velvet is another high-powered mid-ranger that brings a new design language to the brand's Android phone series.

Much-improved design;Big, bright and colourful screen;Novel Dual Screen case;Headphone jack; 5G support

60Hz panel feels dated compared to the competition;Some odd performance issues;Cameras are nothing special

LG Velvet review


The LG Velvet is a lower cost 5G phone, but is the price low enough to compete?

Curved glass shell Good general performance Has 5G

Poor zoom and ultra-wide camera modes Expensive No LG Quad-DAC

The LG Velvet is a mid-range 5G phone that costs a little too much, even compared to LG’s high-end phones of the last year or two. Its lower power chipset does not feel a huge step down, but the rear camera array is not as versatile as we would hope...

LG Velvet review: Refreshing restart?


The LG Velvet has looks that makes it more attractive than many of LG's recent devices. But is that enough to make you want one?

Great looking phone ; Great display ; Dual Screen is lots of fun ; Plenty of power

Camera performance ; Average battery life ; Software could be slicker ; Price (TBC)

This device - despite sub-flagship hardware - makes for a more attractive offering than many recent LG phones. What's really caught our attention is the Dual Screen cover - doubling the 6.8-inch screen with a second one of the same size. However, there...

LG Velvet


It's nice to see LG go in a new direction and although the DualScreen case makes this a faux folding phone, there are various issues to consider

LG Velvet review


Options such as dual screen and the addition of an active pen sets the Velvet apart from Android competitors

5G for less ; Slick design ; Versatile camera app

60Hz display might irk ; Unpolished software ; Not on sale in UK

The Velvet is a solid 5G phone with a design update that LG desperately needed to prove it could pull off

LG Velvet 5G smartphone


The Velvet 5G smartphone sees LG deviating from its G series look by sending the design into a sleeker direction. At just under R12k the phone might just be a hit, although it's far from just bullseyes.

Beautiful design, decent onboard speakers, 5G, great screen

Very slippery, camera could do better

At R11 800, the LG Velvet 5G is pushing the top of the midrange market, still below the R20k we see for some flagships. What it has going for itself is 5G, although competition for cheaper solutions in the 5G space, such as the Huawei P40 lite 5G, will...

LG Velvet with DualScreen review


So we've got three Galaxy S20s with rumors of Lite spin-offs on the way, three iPhone 11s and mumblings of an even larger Apple family this year, a...

Premium build, exquisite color schemes, IP68 rating.

Slow charging.

If, however, you value style on top of everything, don't want to actually pay the flagship premium, nor are you too keen to wait for one from LG,

LG Velvet review: LG’s flagship is finally competitive again


LG has ditched the dull smartphone designs it has trotted out for a while, and given us the fabulous-looking LG Velvet, which is as slinky as its name suggests.

Great design ; Beautiful screen ; Water-resistant and durable ; Decent battery life

Camera needs improvement ; No 90Hz/120Hz screen refresh rate
