Otherwise, buyers can pay from $35 a month on an installment plan, or from $11.67 if they have a phone to trade-in.

Reviewing the LG Wing, Alex Dobie found it to be a “fun science experiment” with mixed utility:
The LG Wing is fun to play with, but the reality is that this quirky science experiment mostly fails to make the transition to a compelling consumer product. For $1000, the Wing is missing table-stakes features like a faster refresh rate and a telephoto zoom camera, to say nothing of the mediocre performance in general. Meanwhile, LG’s software, while inoffensive enough, struggles to keep up with the multitasking demands of a dual-screen handset, and the company’s poor upgrade track record casts doubts on when users will be able to expect an update to Android 11.
The Wing is a weird phone with its big, flippy screen, and it’s also a really expensive one. There’s an audience for a more refined version of this phone, it’s just not clear whether that audience should invest in this version of the Wing before the more refined model appears.
