I bought LG V20, because it has removable battery, dual sim card + dedicated microSD card slot.
I will ditch LG if they seal the battery inside the phone.
Hamburger, 09 Jul 2017V30 is bigger than V20 but now no more radio? No more removable battery? Hmm.....I think they had to move to fixed design due to bootloop issues in the V20 and some earlier models. I want an easily replaceable battery, but it is possible the design changes necessary to maintain replacability were within reach yet.
If this phone will be water resistant and allow me to use 2 sim cards and a memory card at the same time, I'll definitely buy it.
Fuuuuuu LG, 08 Jul 2017LG, you have no shame to copy 1 to 1 the samsung galaxy S8! Shame!!!I don't agree with you
This doesn't look like s8
Also lg g6 was released in march and galaxy s8 was released in april so lg did this shape first

My 2 Cents, 05 Jul 2017Android cant handle 2 SD Ports, in fact the original idea was remove SD Cards dupport from And... moreExplain how it connected USB drives work fine then Android is based off Linux the only reason it can't handle multiple storage spaces is if Google or the hardware maker specifically does not allow such use... To prove to Google such demand exists would be what gets them to actually support the feature. As it stands right now sealing the phone to prevent battery replacement and SD cards is something to drive accessories and initial sale of higher capacity phones. Bottom line if my phone does not have SD card support I'm not buying it and my next one will have a removable battery. My Moto x doesn't and I am pissed off because the battery seems to be falling off a cliff and I have no option to fix it...
Just an opinion, 28 Jun 2017Dual SD slot, plz!Android cant handle 2 SD Ports, in fact the original idea was remove SD Cards dupport from Android OS, not provide more support for it...
Alvin MuJi, 29 Jun 2017The 13 MP Camera from 16 of the V20, why???? Megapixels dont make a good camera, sensors yes....dont matter if you have 24 Mpx if your sensors are crappy.
I really hope LG dont toss Second Display, Superb Sound, FM Radio and IR Blaster, also removable battery, those are little things that make V Series a real flagship phones.
LG's 'V' series (only two, so far) is a Multimedia / Content Creating Champion (in my opinion). These two aspects are what makes this series so awesome. Any changes made to the LG V30 should only strengthen and enhance it's Multimedia prowess and Content Creating arsenal. Having (keeping) a removable battery and expandable storage should be a standard feature in such devices. IR Transmitter, FM Radio, Quad DAC ....and maybe even a stylus (one day) will keep the 'V' line of LG my first option when I'm planning to buy my next smartphone. LG knows it's V series is a super smartphone.... my concern is : Are they smart enough to keep it that way ?
Amoled screen 128 internal bezeless design, Main changes just think only last year bought V20 DS for 500$and now buy again for specs, on screen only, main purpose same, but itch in the ass, to change, even sell previous at half price and buy on full price is obnoxious! Just think how many of end consumers ultimately bear loss and problems risks of Brick Phone, for A piece of toy to listen talk, enough is enough!
Dual sim + SD card slot, bluetooth 5.0, big battery, latest specs, I will buy it, but if they F-up like oneplus 5 I'll pass.

NO, IP68 dust/water resistance is far from a gimmick. It really works. And now it's becoming standard with top tier manufacturers, so LG has to compete with that feature.
Maybe you are thinking of years past and with lower IP ratings?
i personally am an lg user but think lg should improve on the batteries of their phones and maybe also the heating issue of most lg phones
