This is By Far the Worst Named-Phone of MWC.

It’s safe to say that LG has won the award for the worst-named product of MWC 2018 with the V30S ThinkQ.

The name aside, the LG V30S ThinkQ is a slightly improved version of the LG V30, slightly because, you are getting an increased RAM/ROM and AI capabilities.

In other words, S represents the increased storage/RAM and the ThinkQ part represents LG’s new AI that will be integrated into their phones moving forward (hopefully). So with ThinkQ, you have an AI Camera which recognizes the subjects in the frame – be it your cat or a bowl of chips – and adjust the camera’s settings accordingly. Then there is QLens, which can attempt to recognize specific objects for the purposes of shopping, price, and image searching online, more like what Google lens and Samsung’s Bixby can do.

The QLens can also…er… read QR codes :

…And communicate with all your existing and future IoT, smart appliances. Form-wise, the V30s ThinkQ is identical to its predecessor, there are new color options, though. It also packs the same specs as the LG V30, but like I said, the 2018 model has bigger RAM and storage— from 4GB to 6GB RAM and from 128Gb to 256GB ROM.

Honestly, the LG V30 ThinkQ isn’t exciting, and I wonder why LG had to make a brand new version of the V30 to integrate these AI features.
So, ThankQ LG, but no thanks!

    Maybe they are trying to tell us to THINK.

      Lol, what about people who don’t want to THINK?

  2. They could have just called it v30s…no need for the thinkQ or just give it a new name.

    1. Tobi Ayeni says:

      Or just do away with this device altogether and just update previous phones with AI lenses.

    I think Samsung Mobile got one babalawo somewhere to put a curse on LG Mobile 😊. Over the past 6 years LG have fallen from being a competitor to being one of the laughing stock of the mobile community.

    I wanted to ‘Like’ some comments in here, unfortunately, there was no option to so that.
    Concerning LG V30S ThinkQ, the company could have asked for suggestions from the public instead of making themselves look ridiculous.

    ThankQ miss techy… Lol.. But I feel LG is right and on track with the new v30s.. Considering how well theoriginal v30 was. LG made it kinda like a mid-cycle refresh.. Refining the original.. They could have added the addition ram and storage and touted it as a brand new model that has blah blah percent more ram than its predecessor and so and so new colors (as some manufacturers do) .. . This will make the New model a true upgrade To the original..
    Yours sincerely,
    LG fanboy.

  8. The LG V30S ThinQ has ThinQ AI features that increases the brightness of photos. I think that’s where the name is been derived from. Anyways. This phone is just like the Samsung Galaxy S9 because it’s water and dust resistant and it also has wireless charging technology.
