LG V40 vs Galaxy Note 9: Which One Is Worth Buying?



LG V40 vs Note 9: Spec & Features

LG V40 vs Note 9: Spec & Features

Another important factor for any buyer is the specs and features. The V40 is the same as the Galaxy S9, Note 9, Pixel 3 XL, OnePlus 6, etc. Here are the numbers though. 

LG V40 Specs 

  • 6.4-inch Quad-HD OLED Display (or bigger)
  • Snapdragon 845 Processor with 6GB of RAM
  • 64/128GB of storage with microSD expansion (only 64 in the US)
  • Android 8.1 Oreo with Android Pie coming later
  • Triple Cameras: 12MP main f/1.5 camera with OIS, 16MP wide-angle lens, and 12MP telephoto 2z optical zoom lens.
  • Dual Front-Facing 8 MP and 5MP wide-angle cameras
  • LG BoomBox bottom speaker
  • 3,300 mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 and wireless charging
  • IP68 Dust & Water-resistance
  • USB Type-C, Google Assistant button
  • Quad-DAC, 32-bit sound, 3.5mm headphone jack, etc
  • Aurora Black, Moroccan Blue in the US

As you can see, the LG V40 sounds like a great phone. Big screen, plenty of power, fast updated software, lots of cameras and excellent sound. Seriously, this could fly under the radar as one of the top 3 phones of 2018. Our only concern is battery life, as usual with LG. 

Galaxy Note 9 Specs

  • 6.4-inch Quad-HD Curved Infinity AMOLED Display 
  • Snapdragon 845 Processor with 6-8GB of RAM
  • 128 or 512GB storage options (512GB has 8GB RAM)
  • Android 8.1 Oreo with Samsung UX
  • Dual 12MP Rear Cameras with variable aperture, IOS, 960 FPS Slow-mo, more
  • 8MP Front Selfie Camera with Portrait Mode & Improved AR Emoji
  • Stereo Speaker tuned by AKG
  • 4,000 mAh battery with fast and wireless charging
  • IP68 Dust & Water-resistance
  • USB Type-C, Bixby 2.0, Bixby AI, 3.5mm headphone jack
  • Heart-rate sensor, Face Unlock, Iris Scanning
  • S-Pen with Bluetooth, New Features, etc
  • and more

See the differences? The Galaxy Note 8 has more storage, more RAM, and a substantially bigger battery. LG continues to use the same 3,300 mAh battery over and over again, and we're afraid that'll finally be a problem when they've added a big 6.4-inch screen. 

We'll know for sure once we review the phone. 

If there are a few areas Samsung clearly wins out here (aside from the screen) it's the bigger 4,000 mAh battery and the S-Pen. The camera situation, again, is likely a personal preference although we'll explain that more in our next slide.

    I own a lgv40 after trading it in with a s9 Samsung. The reason is the flow of the phone and lg’s iu is great. It intergrades nicely with google. Samsungs iu is sloppy and cumbersome , the flow is horrible. If Samsung allowed you to customize the IU I would own a note 9.
