LG Velvet audit: The cell phone is attractive, the tech is cool, the camera could be improved

LG's most recent Velvet cell phone has turned out in the U.S. as the Korean tech goliath embraces another structure language and gadget naming plan. The telephone comes stacked with smart equipment and smooth unique finger impression understanding innovation. 

In any case, could the new leader telephone convert an Apple someone who is addicted? 

I've been #TeamiPhone for a long time, caught in the iOS biological system and entirely happy with each other cell phone discharge, including the most recent iPhone 11 Max Pro. All things considered, I went through seven days trying out the mid-extend LG Velvet, and it had me dazzled nearly when I unpacked it. 

LG says the telephone is intended to "introduce a time of class." Here are a portion of my principle takeaways: 

The LG Velvet speaks to a takeoff from the organization's old G-arrangement names like LG G8, and it likewise takes on an entirely different outside stylish. Not long ago, LG prodded with advanced renderings of the telephone web based, exhibiting a cleaned, rethought gadget with another camera format.

The LG Velvet has a polished back that is satisfying to take a gander at.

Outwardly, the silver adaptation of the Velvet satisfies everyone's expectations. The pearlescent back, restricted form and simple hold had me at "hi". 

On the front, a huge 6.8-inch bended OLED touchscreen commands. The bended glass has a "3D circular segment plan" with a bezel that is not very diverting. There's likewise a particular activity that shows up at the base of the screen, giving you where to put your thumbprint to open it.

It comes in different hues, as well. LG offers its Velvet cell phone in "Dream Sunset, Aurora Green, Aurora White, Aurora Gray and New Black. 


Turn the gadget around, and the reflected back flashes with dashes of rainbow relying upon how the light hits. It's reflexive and unique finger impression inclined, yet at the same time luxury. The camera course of action was intended to impersonate a falling drop of water, LG says. It's a significantly more moderate methodology than the massive camera structure on my iPhone. 


The LG Velvet has three vertical cameras on the back: a 48-megapixel essential camera, 8-megapixel ultra-wide focal point and a 5 uber pixel camera for profundity. Be that as it may, the photograph quality wasn't stunning. 

The depictions weren't tantamount to the dynamic shots taken with my iPhone. For instance, dark in some cases showed up practically dim. Also, a portion of the photographs seemed cleaned out or needed complexity when contrasted with those taken with my iPhone. 

Selfies needed shading profundity, as did photographs taken with the back camera. 

The photograph on the left was taken with the LG Velvet. The photograph on the privilege was taken with an iPhone 11 Max Pro. 


Selfies were a piece excessively delicate, extinguished and matte for my preferring. Picture Mode was somewhat forceful, as well. Be that as it may, in the event that I didn't straightforwardly contrast them with my iPhone photographs, the image quality was OK. 

Applications and usefulness 

The LG Velvet sudden spikes in demand for the Android 10.0 working framework. Furthermore, for this long-term iOS client, exploring the Google Play Store was generally simple. 

Exchanging between interpersonal interaction applications was no issue on the new telephone. What's more, the vast majority of go-to's, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, worked a similar way they did on my Apple gadgets. During one next to the other tests, the applications propelled at a similar speed on the two telephones. What's more, in certain occasions, the Velvet propelled speedier, however not by much. 

One striking contrast however was the warnings board, which is more captivating to connect with on the Android telephone. 

Setting it up to control my Chromecast was really simple, as well. The procedure took under a moment, however I utilized it just to kill my TV on and by means of voice orders. 

Last considerations 

My experience was blended, yet I despite everything like the new telephone. LG gets 10s in all cases for planning a $599 gadget that looks and feels premium. The style contends effectively with the $1,000 cell phones I'm more acclimated with. 

Since the telephone is meager with a one of a kind camera design, the LG Velvet feels like a cell phone from a year or two later on, while as yet keeping up congenial components, for example, an earphone jack. The presentation was fine. Applications load immediately. Nothing truly slacked, and it's 5G good. 

Be that as it may, the telephone isn't great. The photograph quality has opportunity to get better. That is one of the principle reasons I'll be adhering to my iPhone.
