The good: The water-resistant LG V50 has a big, sharp display, five cameras that take different kinds of photos, a headphone jack and 5G connectivity.
The bad: The phone is expensive if you don’t use much 5G and it lacks compelling software extras.
CNET rating: 4.0 stars out of 5 (Excellent)
The cost: $999.99
The bottom line: Though the LG V50 is a solid phone and one of the first to have 5G, it’s not a worthwhile investment. Its high price can’t compete with the OnePlus 7 Pro and national 5G coverage is sparse.
