And without staying on the road the wireless charging, that LG maintains it as an advantage despite adding greater fragility with the crystal.

More cameras to achieve different effects without emulating them
If we talk about cameras, it is inevitable to look at the set of horizontal objectives that are in line with the rear face of the LG V40. The manufacturer maintains the duality of the double sensor, with ?standard? and wide capture by wide angle and adds a third camera with telephoto capabilities. Thanks to this triple combination its users will obtain images according to the results they want. Focus the entire scene with the wide angle, for example. Or zoom an object without losing detail and sharpness by optical zoom.
The capture application is still the best on Android. The large number of different options are now joined by a portrait mode with telephoto camera support In addition to maintaining the wide angle. The artificial intelligence of ThinQ, not in vain continues to give the name to the phone. This improvement to make it more useful when automatically selecting the best scene for shooting.
Regarding the double front camera the LG V40 returns to the origins of the V10 to offer wide-angle capture apart from selfies with "normal" amplitude. ThinQ AI also has its importance here as it aims to improve self-portraits effectively: it allows from different light effects to apply stickers and other effects.
