LG Wing Review | Trusted Reviews

 

The LG Wing is one of the most bizarre phones I have ever used. It's completely different to just about every other phone on the market.

Original flip-screen approach;Well built;Gimbal mode is an interesting way to shoot

Flip screen has limited use case scenarios;Performance isn’t amazing for the price;Very heavy phone

LG Wing review

 

Playing swivels advocate

Lovely design ; Superb displays ; Solid cameras

Structurally fragile ; Necessarily thick ; No waterproof rating

The Wing will please you if you like the unique design, gimbal camera control, and using two apps at once, but you sacrifice portability to get it

LG Wing review: This novelty can’t quite get off the ground

 

You won't find another smartphone like the LG Wing due to the amazing swivel screen, but it's just not that useful everyday. Here's our review.

Superbly made hardware ; Satisfying screen rotation ; Gimbal camera mode works well

Too few uses for the swivel screen ; 60Hz refresh rate screen

LG Wing 5G Review

 

Great for multitasking ; Impressive Gimbal mode for video ; Solid cameras

Very heavy ; Subpar performance at this price ; Some low-light focus issues

LG's Wing 5G is a unique phone with its double-screen design and cool video-recording modes, but its high weight, low speed, and scant app ecosystem are significant tradeoffs.

LG Wing review: learning to fly, failing to soar

 

The $999 LG Wing is too expensive for one fun gimmick

Interesting design ; Excellent build quality ; Solid performance

Expensive ; Not enough use cases for the second screen ; No waterproofing or fast refresh rate

The $999 LG Wing is 2020’s most unique-looking smartphone, but it doesn’t justify the price premium for that design with real-world usefulness. Check out the full review for more details on the software, performance, cameras, and more.

LG Wing review: a flippin’ fun phone

 

LG Wing — the world's first 5G swivel smartphone

Bright, color-accurate OLED displays ; Pop-up selfie camera ; Innovative, T-shaped design ; Simultaneous rear-and-front video recording ; Awesome app juggling

Past-gen CPU ; Middling performance

The LG Wing is a stellar swivelling smartphone with cool camera features that appeal to vloggers, but it has underperforming internals.

LG Wing Review – Swiveling Android is Peak 2020

 

As anybody who wished for a more eventful 2020 now knows, sweating the details is important. How else to describe the LG Wing, a rotating dual-screen curio that – even in a time of foldable s…

An eye-catching form factor like no other ; Virtual gimbal camera works well ; Second display can be useful with the right apps

Few apps take advantage of the dual-screen design ; Gimbal footage capped at 1080p ; Camera performance is only average ; Battery falls short

LG Wing Review

 

The LG Wing is a commercial concept phone that is the first in the LG Explorer series of devices. It maximizes the user experience (UX) for...

Awesome design and concept ; Great display quality ; Excellent vlogging capabilities ; Excellent multimedia device

Premium performance at high-end price ; Buttons are difficult to access in T-Mode

The LG Wing’s primary goal is to explore a new user experience concept. In that regard, it is a success because the LG Wing introduces something bold, compelling, and original.

LG Wing 5G review: Thinking outside the box

 

The LG Wing 5G is perhaps the most uniquely designed smartphone of 2020 - at least, that's actually in production. To that effect, the unique multi-screen phone looks like a typical candy bar smartphone - The LG Wing 5G is perhaps the most uniquely...

Bold, unique form-factor ; Swivel mechanism is natural and durable ; Vibrant displays ; Neat gimbal camera mode

Bulky ; Verizon model comes with lots of bloatware ; Not enough uses for the second screen ; Pricey

But is it just a gimmick?

LG Wing review

 

The LG Wing has a crazy swivel design, a pup-up robo selfie camera, and a lot of fresh ideas. Gimmick or useful? The market will decide...

Innovative and fun design that has a few niche uses; The gimbal camera is fun, but not amazing; Main and ultrawide cameras are good

$1k can get you better performance elsewhere; Chances to get developers to make apps for this design are slim
