Ryan, 31 Aug 2017No FM radio, No replacable battery, Not worth my money. On how many flagships have you seen lately a radio module? 2-3?
On how many flagships have you seen lately a removable battery?
Nowadays it is more important to have IP68 standard than a removable battery. The newer processors can keep the lights on 2-3 days now and also have fast charging capabilities..why would you need a removable battery?
I dont know how and why people think like this. What do you want to do by numbers written on paper. What about real world performance.?
Someone wants a battery bigger than 3300 mah. Why cant we think other way round that my battery should be 2000 mah but it should last me a day or more. Which also points towards light Interface and lag free experience. Some one wants more mega pixels. What if you are able to produce far better quality pics at a lower megapixel count. I dont even know if you people are getting my point but there are companies which were thinking like that earlier and those companies have also lost their way because market demands specs on paper rather than real performance.
apple always has followed this strategy but they also branded and advertised their products in right ways. Motorola was one which had all that going in right direction when they were up with moto x series and then advent of lenovo spoiled it all.
Rather looking for best specs on paper look into real world of needs. This is how it should be looked at -
I need a phone that fits in hand big screen small dimensions
(i phone 8, essential ph1, s8, mi mix, q6, g6, v30 )
but i want lag free experience - lg q6 out of the list now
my preference is android -
i phone 8 out of the list
not too huge in my average hand
mi mix out of the list
features are important but not as important as lagfree and butter smooth experience
(all left are capable but samsung will definitely be slowest in the lot because of heavy features)
v30, essential, g6 (why to go for sd 820 now)
so v30 vs essential
essential makes it further future proof by providing possibility of mods as well just like moto z series so makes highest level of sense.
now consider the probs with this phone and decide whether to go for it or not.
All i mean to say is spec sheet on paper is only for fooling people. I am myself a product designer and i work in the field of gadgets itself. So i suggest to think ahead of what they are showing you.
People will sleep on the V-30 because of the iPhone 8 and Note 8 but this is without a doubt king of all flagships of 2017
Is it announced when lgv30+ will be released.... or its just a rumor
Quick question? Does it really still have an IR blaster? live videos show a headphone jack hole and another dot which could be another mic. The LG V30 is awesome and it has everything that most people want now! The "GOPro" features are awesome!

comparable whit note 8. this one really nice: Weight 158 g (5.57 oz) and general dimensions good to. Use gsmarena tool to compare V30 - Note 8
Launching A Flagship phone in almost late 2017 with 4GB of RAM is really a disappointment...
Even Brand like Samsung has started giving 6GB of RAM ( in S8+ and Note 8).
LG is thinking that with the help of its f/1.6 Camera it can beat Sales of Galaxy Note8 and Iphone 8 .

The v30 looks very well rounded! Too big for me but a very nice phone. Not too tall, wide, thick or heavy but ticks all the boxes a phablet should IMHO. I still think 18:9 screens are a little too tall, but for a phone than can only be used two handed it doesn't matter as much. It's the S8's and G6's where the super tall aspects are a problem.
3300mAh battery for a 6 inch screen!! Lg is mad ?? v30's battery sucks. I will have maximum 3 hours of battery life.
After the lg v20 come with android 7 all the now smartphone followed not even samsung had a new software...all other makers (android) are behinde LG
As the user of G4, i can say this is not much an option to buy a v30.
Display: perfect. But we are used to 16:9 screen.
Sound: by far the best. I am not a music composer.
Battery: the tech of four years ago with no remarkable change at all.
Taxes: 56% in my country.
CONCLUSION: MAYBE NEXT YEAR.
This is a very nice phone, I like it better than the latest Samsung's phones, but I would have preferred 1 - 1.5 mm more in thikness, with a larger battery. My very inexpensive xiaomi 4x has a 4100mah battery, in a still compact body, and these suoerphones only 3300...there is something odd here...
