Arccosinus, 31 Aug 2017G 6 has a 1.12 pixel size sensor while lg V30 has only 1.0 nm pixels largeThe difference is too small and V30 has 16mp camera so it should balance out
Has a F1.69 Aperture but markets as F1.6 what kinda rounding off is that ! , POLED is a Welcome change and everything else is fine unless it doesn't bootloop. I'd choose a OP5, NOKIA 8 or a Galaxy S8 over this anyday..
The main cameras' picture quality is terrible. Oversharpened and if you look closely as details such as trees, etc, it looks as if there was a Photoshop filter applied to save some details but it just looks bad. I hope this isn't final software, this is quite disappointing right now.

I told you even 1 year ago that because of the low sales, LG will copy Samsung. But the reason why LG have low sales is that they have poor build quality, poor quality of G5 module contact (gap, wears out quickly), bad reputation due to bootloops, shattergate (fragile camera glass), ugly design (the back of G5, V20, G6), weak GPS, poor quality screen (image retention). And LG still don't understand why the low sales. They still don't understand what did they wrong. Therefore they misunderstand the failure of G5 and started copying Samsung with glass unibody, non-removable battery, small bezels and curved screen.
I hope LG V30 will be a big flop and profit loss, in hope that they will learn their lessons and will go back to the G4 and V10 design (removable battery, FM Radio, IR blaster, flat screen, LCD screen) for their future phones (and fix the bootloop and shattergate (fragile camera glass) once and for all).
LCD is better than AMOLED. But unfortunately LG used the same poor quality LCD screen since G4. That's why they have image retention and other problems. All other brand's LCD screens are flawless.
Pity really I have always admired LG ever since its G3 even though I like my Notes but sadly it's always lacking that essential something to win me over.
It's a shame it couldn't incorporate it's latest 4k HDR TV tech into its screens. I have an LG TV and it's 10 years old and still as good as the day I bought it. I shall be buying one of the LG Tvs soon and still keep the old one.

I personally hated viewing content on the S8's curved screen, and the fingerprint scanner is better placed on the V30, though I don't even use it so it's a moot point. I would agree that the next Pixel XL may be better, no headphone jack on that one so that's also lame.
This phone is lame, it tries too hard to copy Samsung S8 series. I think I will wait for the Pixel 2 series to come out, even tho it's probably going to be made by LG.

it's so funny
oneplus 5 selfie camera sensor (imx371) is very similar to lg v30 main camera sensor (imx351). what a shame for lg.
jackpistolaru, 31 Aug 2017It doesn't matter how many megapixels you have!What does matter it's the size of the pixel...t... moreNo, the selfie camera has only 5 megapixels because they use a very small sensor (probably ≈ 1/5" sensor). Small sensor => bad image quality
Curved screen edges, I'm out. Seriously, what marketing research indicated we wanted fragile construction for a feature with an indiscernible benefit? Market research should show how many people put cases on their phones to protect their investment...
I suppose they are the same consultants that told these companies that we didn't want 3.5mm headphone jack, either
Anonymous, 31 Aug 2017It's 1.69? Are you sure? What terrible marketing lies if true. And still inky 1um? And only 5m... moreThe exif data state f/1.69 , but maybe it's a mistake from them. Also the exif data for the ultra wide angle camera states f/1.99 instead of f/1.9
Anonymous, 31 Aug 2017It's 1.69? Are you sure? What terrible marketing lies if true. And still inky 1um? And only 5m... moreMe too, me too. I was so excited when I read specs sheet at first. But after I dug into the underline part of the specs I WAS that disappointed! I was literally mad. It seems now that their chief literally tipped onto such tricks when said that they used smaller components to make the phone smaller. Whith that being said and those peculiarities became known as can understand what did he mean. They try to save money during less quality components such as camera sensors. They used 1/2,6 sized sensor in V20, then shifted onto 1/3 in the G6 and now are during the same size sensor with bigger MP count. What a stupid marketing things from LG. Their imaging engineers are working so hard to get the max perf out of those tiny sensors and they make things even worse for them. LG's imaging engineers, I appreciate what you are doing and just wonder what would you done having you such hardware as S7 or S8 have. It would have been rx100 picture quality if not even better)
LG superfan, 31 Aug 2017G6 has the same sensor but still produces image which can compete with s8 and u11G 6 has a 1.12 pixel size sensor while lg V30 has only 1.0 nm pixels large

You can find same results from people of any brand. People say the same thing with carriers and other aspects.
But the end result is always the same thing. All companies suck and someone will have a bad experience with said company no matter how good someone else's is.
