The older generation of handset makers is falling, and LG announced on April 5, 2021, that it was pulling out of the handset market and selling the unreleased Qualcomm 888 flagship Velvet 2 Pro to 3,000 employees at an internal price of 199,100 won. At this point, the mobile phone industry lost a soul player, consumers lost a very imaginative mobile phone manufacturers, electronic waste pickers can no longer pick up cost-effective foreign garbage.

In addition to the 3,000 units LG sold to internal employees, dozens of engineering machines flowed out of the Vietnamese plant. Therefore, the author how to smash 5000 Ocean in the domestic seafood market to buy a dual-card version of Velvet 2 Pro. As for the official version of the internal staff machine, in South Korea second-hand market price of 650 dollars (single card).

why spend so much money on a non-mainstream phone? because of the feelings. but today, let's take a look at what makes this last flagship unique.

appearance

The LG Velvet 2 Pro inherited the original LG Velvet design on the overall body design, especially the water drop camera module on the back, but was rated V700N on the internal model, so this Vevlet is actually the V70.

When first quite started, the Velvet 2 Pro was very lightweight. The 6.8-inch screen, with a 165x75x7.5mm three-ring, weighs about 175g and is probably the lightest and thinnest of the Android 888 models. The front micro-curved and curved edges are designed to hold hands and have a feeling of crying: too comfortable. It is precisely because of thin, fat people such as my mobile phone pants pocket is not at all tight.

in addition, the minimalist design on the back is as simple and distinctive as ever. it just still can't escape the fate of the fingerprint collector.

The velvet 2 Pro's extremely narrow border, with the curvature on both sides of the border, is also a guarantee of the machine's excellent feel. It's worth noting that velvet 2 Pro ditches the solid volume keys and replaces them with HTC-like press-sense buttons, with split volume plus-lock screen keys. Pressing the button takes time to get used to, and you won't be sure to press it at first.

FOR A VERY NARROW BORDER, LG MOVES THE POWER BUTTON AND THE CARD SLOT TO THE TOP OF THE FUSELAGE, WHICH IS A LESS-ACCUSTOMED PLACE IN A SITUATION WHERE ALMOST ALL OF THE PHONE'S POWER KEYS ARE ON THE SIDE, BUT IT DOESN'T HURT.

At the bottom of the phone, the speaker, type C-microphone, and the ancestral 3.5mm headphone hole didn't survive.

LG Velvet 2 Pro uses a 6.8-inch 120Hz center punchED screen, PPI is a bit pathetic, especially in this year's domestic mobile phone start 2K resolution, LG has lost the ancestral 2K screen, the reason behind the humour. In addition to the resolution factor, this screen microstropes, upper and lower width ultra narrow border, but also added dual speaker design, screen and border is too natural, the feel of the grip is excellent, overall there is no big problem.

IF LG COULD HAVE MADE A PHONE THAT FITS THE POPULAR AESTHETIC AND THE HARDWARE IS NOT OUT OF DATE IN THE EARLY YEARS, IT SHOULD NOT BE ABLE TO EXIT THE MOBILE PHONE MARKET.

screen

As mentioned earlier, the LG Velvet 2 Pro features a 6.8-inch 120Hz center punchED screen with a resolution of 2400x1080 and a PPI of 388. Now the domestic flagship mostly equipped with 2K 120Hz LTPO material AMOLED screen.

Starting with the G7 in 2018, LG's screen is moving into the era of heavy makeup, in which the color of the screen flatters the eye, but it's not the MSG flavor of labush saturation. But from the V60-Velvet-Wing generation, LG has converged its unbridled on-screen typing and become more stable: the screen has changed color.

IN ADDITION TO THE PRESET NATURAL-REALISTIC-MOVIE THREE SCREEN COLOR MODES, LG CAN ALSO ADJUST ITS OWN COLOR TEMPERATURE, RGB, SATURATION, TONE AND SHARPNESS, ALWAYS BRINGING OUT RESULTS THAT SATISFY YOUR EYES. BUT IF YOU'RE LIKE A LAZY PERSON LIKE ME, JUST USE THE NATURAL MODE.

The Velvet 2 Pro has a warmer default color temperature than the X60 Pro Plus, with both phones turning to maximum brightness and LG brighter.

Using some of the photos you took as footage, such as the one above, you'll find the X60 Pro Plus red overflow, while the Velvet 2 Pro is stable here. What was once thought to be a camera problem (X50 Pro-Plus shooting) is now known to be a problem with the vivo screen.

Apart from red, the two express blue differently. LG and vivo one more "tender" the other is deeper, even blocky.

All in all, the Velvet 2 Pro screen has nothing wrong with anything other than poor resolution. The Velvet 2 Pro is available in 4K 120Hz and is expected to be available at the seafood market one day, according to the tip.

quality

Unfortunately, the V60 ThinQ is the pinnacle of LG's mobile phones. The Velvet 2 Pro not only cut off the 3.5mm headphones, but also the HiFi chip, really brought fans to tears. In addition, the boombox features that started with the G7 have disappeared, replaced by dual speakers. Just to say, Velvet is not as good inside and out as it used to be, but compared to the average phone (especially my vivo X60 Pro Plus), the outplay is OK.

performance

The Velvet 2 Pro, paired with Qualcomm 888, has a hands-on version of the 8-128GB Beggars version, which is stored with the flagship mainstream UFOS 3.1 and is STILL OK in performance.

Geekbench 5 CPU test results, Velvet 2 Pro single-core run points and X60 Pro Plus are similar, multicore results are not equal.

Geekbench 5 OpenCL test results Velvet 2 Pro run score of 4647 points, X60 Pro plus 4725 points, the two scores are similar.

PC Mark Wild Life's results reversed, with the Velvet 2 Pro winning by a score of 5726.

As for the Android run results are to be expected, after all, the Velvet 2 Pro is 128G, while the X60 Pro plus 256G, running score is not winning is normal.

as for the rabbit, the gap between the two runs is very large, it is worth thinking about.

LG mobile phones have always had strict temperature control walls, soc temperature as high as the frequency drop. In the machine circle, enthusiasts will remove the temperature control files, use the yc scheduling with Scene to improve energy efficiency ratio, reduce power consumption expenditure. Anyway, it's Qualcomm 888, and there's really no problem with performance.

internet

Authentic Korean version of Velvet 2 Pro only supports mobile Unicom 4G, Unicom Telecom 5G, and I have this engineering machine with ROOT, change a code can support three networks 4G, Unicom Telecom 5G, and mobile 5G because of band reasons do not support, but if you know the RF this piece, magic can also be supported.

MEASURE THE SPEED AT HAND, MOVE 4G AT THIS SPEED.

battery

The Velvet 2 Pro is lightweight but also comes with a 4500mAh battery, so it's okay to use it lightly for a day. The charge supports 25w fast charging, a number that is fairly conservative in 2021. Wireless charging does not have the appropriate tools and cannot be tested.

photograph

here first a simple mention of taking photos, followed by the photo experience will be dedicated to the period assessment.

The Velvet 2 Pro's 0.5x-1x-3x focal segment solution is practical but not exciting enough. Main camera 1x is 64 megapixels, f/1.8 aperture, 0.8 sm per pixel area, CMOS is most likely imx686, ultra-wide 0.5x for 12 megapixels, f/2.2 aperture, 1.4 m per pixel area, CMOS is imx363? This also means that the Velvet 2 Pro is actually a dual master design. In addition, the telephoto 3x is 8 megapixels, barely able to use. There is no potential.

Velvet 2 Pro inherits the stabilizer mode from the rotary screen Ring, based on the ultra-wide CMOS redundant design plus comes with stabilization.

In addition, velvet 2 Pro supports 3D shooting, 360-degree panoramic, and more, with high camera playability.

put a few photo samples:

other features

外观篇提到的超声波压感按键功能是Velvet 2 Pro的特色功能之一。LG内置了三种样式,可以设置按压敏感度,也可以选择显示与否,有些新鲜,使用起来不如实体按键方便,需要花时间去习惯。

standby clock can turn on the quick tool and music player, this screen overview function is very practical, but also the author actually use the medium and high frequency use of a function.

THE 3D SOUND ENGINE FUNCTION IS ALSO INHERITED AND THE SPEAKER MODE WORKS.

But LG cut off the biggest feature of HiFi features, cut off the knock unlock, cut off the LG file sharing...

On the system side, the Velvet 2 Pro is equipped with the latest LG UX10, based on Android 11, and is actually a native system with dot LG features similar to Samsung OneUI, with no ads, no fancy features, only Google Eco. But this time LG took a little care in the animation: bring your own APP back to the desktop when the icon will move, very cute, not tired of looking.

summary

In 2005, chocolate phones captured the hearts of many young people in the era of feature machines, and then with the peak of the G2 into the Android camp, to the once series of ambitions of the flexible screen G Flex, G5 modularity, V20 open Hi-Fi, random dual-screen accessories Dual Screen, rotary screen WING, and even the reel screen Rablel in the stillborn belly, there has not been a 2K screen camera machine ... These stories are enough to prove that LG is a brand that has never been willing to be mediocre, and that LG's sword-wielding approach to mobile phone business is, at least, really something different to the world.

As the last flagship Velvet 2 Pro is not perfect, but also gave me a lot of surprises, as a mobile phone, Velvet 2 Pro has the ultimate feel, performance camera screen speakers and other aspects closely related to daily use are in the first step level, then HiFi and 3.5mm headphones and other old traditions are acceptable. Unfortunately, LG is out of the mobile phone market, so say goodbye.

Life was good.
