  • Linus. People in america are poor. My phone is $80 and I'm perfectly happy with it. I dont even know how you spend $300 on a phone..

  • Got the 4g version for 299€ today because my g6 simslot broke g6, I loved u

  • This will require anthony, I have a velvet and found a major security flaw ... It let's ANYONE unlock my phone and use it. I have tried cleaning fingerprint and going for just one finger and still the same result. My gf brother can unlock it . Please let's get this checked.

  • Can't tell what phone is which nowadays

  • I've been running a OnePlus 6T for almost 2 years now and it's just fine. There's such a fascination with new hardware that I won't ever understand

  • I wonder what the realworld difference would be with this LG and my Samsung A70.

  • I just pick up an LG Velvet. I broke my Pixel 3A XL and went to verizon. I needed a replacement immediately since I use it for work. There were no iphones or pixels in stock. There was 1 LG, the velvet I got and a few samsungs. The phone is fine but the text autofill and correction is horrible compared to a pixel.

  • Mi has some way better options

  • I am still using a iphone 6s so yeah, i am still fine🤪

  • I have several phones from iphone to s10 samsung but I still prefer my LG G6 because of the quad DAC audio though wired headphones has incredible sound quality.. Also it's never glitched unlike the s10 or the iphone x that have crashed several times...

  • The Velvet looks like a Samsung Galaxy S6/S7 Edge, which is not a bad thing because they are some of the best looking smartphones ever made. Also the velvet has a headphone jack!

  • Never buy LG, G7 still doesnt have Android 10, history of bootlooping

  • 3 camera but only one that have the bump!

  • i like how he is speaking a lot of the 765g when the video is sponsored but when he reviewed the op nord he just said it is a bit worse then the 865

  • I just got this phone and its pretty nice

  • This or the oneplus 8 ?(non pro)

  • Nitpicking but this would be perfect with a 90hz display. Has everything else for daily driver.

  • Features I'm missing on velvet.. Stereo speakers, Legendary HiFi quad DAC , popup selfie , much better camera setup (with higher resolution wideangle cameras )

  • That new intro: That new beard Nice 😎

  • I'm watching this on a LG stylus 1. So old

  • The SD765G is the 5G Variant in México LG would sell a 4G only version which would use the SD845 and 6GB of ram, and would cost the equivalent of 900usd then doesn't sound as good anymore, just sound like and overpriced old hardware "new" phone

  • Got the Velvet today... I have to get new phone didn't want to spend to much.I was about to pay and at that moment the seller said oh there's no accessories... But I can offer you300$ gift card mmm yeah ok why not XD Thanks Bestbuy Mobile Metrotown XD

  • Only 4k 30fps video? No thanks I don't care how cheap is I need 4k 60.

  • LG really is simply one of the best companies out there.

  • "if you use your phone for social media, emails and light gaming it's perfect" lol what else would you even do?

  • Why is there no 720p option?

  • my brother has a velvet

  • I just wish makers would keep a camera in the middle of the phone. It's too weird to center an angle at something.

  • That notch is such a bummer. If it was a notch like LG G7 and G8, I would be totaly okay with it but this... It looks like budget chinese phones

  • So the processor is as good as a two year old phone and there is no internationally unlocked version of the phone. Gotcha thanks.

  • If Linus uses an android as a "daily driver" why use an apple watch?

  • I used mid/top mid tier Android phones for nearly 10 years. Always had headphone jack. Then I switched to an iPhone with no headphone jack. Don't really miss it at all and that was very surprising to me. Most of these people out here complaining about no headphone jack have never used one without it. Give it a shot it's not that bad.

  • Oneplus all the way

  • I thought you were an iOS guy 😐

  • Samsung White Knights: "Eeewmm LGm Boomth Loomp Dismlike Dismlikem". Samsung: *Casually Explodes*

  • I forgot I had my S9 on power savings mode for like 3 months, I think I am good with the less powerful CPU's

  • This entire video tells me that I should not replace my note9 anytime soon.

  • Mi9T Master race

  • I feel like the 765g needed to just be a little more potent to be competitive. So close though...

  • Looks like.lg has tones down their skin.

  • I used the note 8 until. Finally getting the note 20 ultra. Other than battery phone still held up every where until. You go back from 120hz to 60z then its like oh wow.

  • I'm using the lg v60 right now, I don't see that big a difference

  • Using a Android device daily, but wearing a AppleWatch?

  • sadly this is the worst flagship of LG cuz it doesnt carry the famous quad dac, I love LG phones and looking for a new LG rn but this is off my radar completely cuz there isnt a quad dac, its the only feature that diferentiates LG from everyone else, but they seem to just want to cheap out

  • I'm still searching for a phone that is strictly better than a droid turbo 2. For how much phones cost now, they sure make a lot of compromises.

  • Camera was it's main weakness. Sidestepped that landmine!

  • Will you be doing a video on the new Samsung note 20/ 20 ultra 5g ?

  • 650 euros for this vs 399 euros for OP Nord... same processor and 90hz screen on the Nord.

  • I thought you were dailying the Samsung Fold?

  • I'd pay LG 350€ maximum for that phone , in a condition I will get Android 10 out of the box and at least another 2 years of sec. updates and bug fixes ( including at least one release of Android 11 or unlocked bootloader after sw support period )....asking 650€ for a "middle tier" phone with absolute garbage of a software support is a joke....I can get Xiaomi Note pro 9 for less with so much better specs.

  • What about that Apple Watch ? How do you not have an iPhone ????

  • 600 US$ WTF i was expecting something like 450

  • Anyone saw the movie My Favorite Martian? ..just remembered.. no connection/s ofc..

  • Y are u still using note 9 I too have......

  • I feel proud on my Note 9.... 🥰😜

  • why are there so many dislikes

  • I love my LG V50

  • Hey linus you need to do a best wish computer build battle under $1000. and maybe ebaY.

  • Does anyone know if this is compatible with dji fly?

  • Me looking at linus loose hair the whole time.

  • I have a Note 9 as well and have been looking at the V60 and the Velvet after not being too impressed with the early vids of the MS Duo.

  • note 9s still in good condition going for $350 though. Unlocked, good for googlefi

  • My phone is a LG V20. I bought it AGAIN this year when in broke my last one.It's INVALUABLE when I want to turn down a loud tv in a public place. Plus, I can remove the back and put in the battery from my old one.

  • xiaomi mi note 10 is better for me because of this camera of 108Mpx and this baterrie of 5260Mha

  • Actually, i think EMMC and UFS is the major factor in the slowness rather than the SOC. Just see the number of mid range phones still using EMMC in 2020

  • Review the note 20 ultra

  • 4:00 what's a flashy vid..

  • Linus: it has a jack stick! Me: *sold*

  • It's true, a lot of users don't need that high performance that the Snapdragon 865 has. A 765G would do perfectly fine, plus be more power efficient, so it would be perfect for the average user. People buying phones with Snapdragon 865's (and even the older chips from a couple generations back) just to use it for social media and media consumption is a waste. However something like the Xiaomi Mi 10 puts this phone to shame. Snapdragon 865, 8GB of ram, 128 of fast UFS 3.0 storage, an amoled display with a punch hole camera, a 108 MP camera sensor, wireless charging, water resistance, and a 4700 mah battery. It has no draw backs and it's less than 600 bucks, it can even compete with stuff like the Note 20 Ultra, which is over double the price of this phone.

  • anyone getting those white ads with no content and a skip button(without a 5 second delay) just me....okay

  • Question: Is there a way to measure the FPS of MS Words and Excel running on PC?

  • Hey Linus, I've checked like you said and it sucks.

  • Why can't I watch ur vids on 1440p anymore

  • This type of content is really starting to get sketchy. It really seems like you're doing a kind of review, rather than a commercial for a product

  • Ooh, a decent looking phone, I just might pick that u-- Oh god. It's made by LG... Nevermind.

  • Still using my LG V35. Most likely, I won't be getting a new phone for at least a year.

  • Glad I'm not the only one. I still use the S9 from years ago, I just haven't seen a phone that makes me want to change, plus they're all so big trying to get them in and out of my jeans pocket I'm glad he's doing this video because I was wondering the same thing about the snapdragon 765 after seeing it in the oneplus nord.

  • You know you watch too much LTT when you notice missed opportunities for plugs. 6:23 would have been perfect to drop a "or shopping online at". Come on, Linus, this isn't how customer advertising is supposed to work.

  • Dual-screen foldable phones are so boring. I prefer the one large screen philosophy. I remember when the ZTE Axon M came out and people acted like it was something unique. Stuff like Samsung’s Z Flip is more exciting.

  • Basically all the new phone with Snapdragon 765G are reviewed cause of this.

  • Or just get a like-new LG G8 for under $300 USD and get everything the Velvet has minus 5G but with a better 855 SoC, 1440p OLED, a Sabre ESS quad DAC, and true face unlock.

  • One word: Xiaomi.

  • Do you need the latest and greatest? No. But what if LG updates your G7 to Android 10 and is now slower, full of bugs and a pain to use? What do you do when the manufacturer pulls the brakes your still powerful phone, making it slow and sluggish? Well, you never buy LG again and go elsewhere!

  • Been using the LG V30 for a few years and I don't regret it for a second. It's a great phone. I had my last phone for 6,5 years and I expect somewhat the same out of this. I am happy that I went that phone as well, because it didn't have a notch, but rather a small bezel. I'd take a 3mm bezel over a 5mm notch any day.

  • I'm still rocking LG G7+ Not gonna change it till 5G become mainstream

  • Or you can buy the S10 for around $500

  • Stupid curved screens!!! Trend needs to stop. Also Microsoft yourphone is soooo good on samsung phones!

  • Linus is trying to understand if the surface duo will be worth a try despite the specs

  • Is that a theme with lg now? Throw in a dual screen case?

  • Wait, Linus reviewed an LG phone? I wasn't sure he knew they existed. They must've have told him it was a monitor.

  • Holy shit this is just an advertisement.

  • Lg paid you to talk about the Velvet, you talked about the sick differences, what about the phone?!

  • How many sponsored lg videos are you gonna do

  • Galaxy S8 doing okay here!

  • Skip the velvet get a lg v60 it comes with Snapdragon 865

  • Why this video not play?

  • For 600 $ i can get a note 10 +

  • samsung only sells samsung exynos phones in singapore...=( get the snapdragons models we can only order online form overseas...

  • No thanks. LG is the best to not updates their phones. So obsolete at lauch!

  • You don't need a good CPU in your PC either if all you do is office work. You can still have a phenom and ddr2
