Yes the V30 is technically smaller than the Note8. But the V30 is by no means a small device. It is still a larger, heavy all glass device.
And most of the quality is known. Talking about things like ram, front camera, back camera, maybe with display though that could be an early batch thing. And for the average person might not be as bad as made out to be. But still would show the difference of time and cost between the two.
I'm liking the V30 a lot, but... Does it bother anyone else that the V30 has no side power button? Do we really have to give a "reach-around" on the fingerprint scanner to unlock and lock the screen? Not sure if that's a deal breaker but it does seem inconvenient. I wonder if there's a virtual home button to wake it at least? Or a long press to a volume button?
This phone really is a looker, wow. :o Definitely waiting for the full review.

(And forget comparisons for a minute, personally I think the Note 8's size and weight are a liability, that heavy, large, fragile thing is going to get dropped by lots of people.)

Note 8 is curved but that doesn't distort. But it's also higher quality and bigger for viewing.
V30 may be cheaper but there is good reason. It's cheaper. It cuts more corners and and costs less to make. It's actually more over priced even though it's cheaper.
The fingerprint is better placed but still not perfect
Mehran, 02 Sep 2017Why should I buy it instead of the note 8?!1. It's lighter and shorter than the Note 8, so it can be used with one hand.
2. No curved OLED to distort video.
3. It's cheaper.
4. Accessible fingerprint reader.

I came here to read about the display and found nothing interesting hopefully it will be covered in detail in full review?
JIO sim in india, requires LTE band 3, 5, 40. This phone lacks LTE band 40, because of which, JIO sim will NOT operate smoothly.
BEWARE, JIO sim lovers.
I have seen a debate going on about lcd and amoled. My honest opinion is amoled looks more vibrant and pleasing to eyes than lcd.But after 3years my galaxy s3 has a permanent screen burn in, on top of the display. I have a sony device which i used 3 years but couldn't see in deterioration on display. I have a lg g4(which is already bootlooped), it was the worst lcd i ever seen, which suffered from image retention issue also g5, v20 also with same issue. So lg has worst lcd, but it looks like lcd is more durable than amoled
every thing is good but for sound i wish it has stereo speakers not one Loudspeaker
and the ram should be 6 GB

Lol. You can cry all you want but it won't change it. And lg actually makes good displays.
Show me any lcd out performing the note 8 then lol. I'm be waiting.... maybe in ten years of there is a tech breakthrough you might be able to send me a link
I get that everyone is putting down their SLR cameras but I hardly ever buy a phone just for the camera.In fact,that is the last selling point for me.

LG has the worst quality LCD screens. All other brand's LCD screens are better.
