Eager to see how the screen s... morewide-angle camera as default is not really practical in daily usage and it is easier to get image distortion on wide angle lens. Quality wise usually wider lens is less sharp than normal lens.
Anonymous, 31 Aug 2017OMG this rage!
This is totally false!
I have an LG V10 since last summer and didn't have any... moreI'm afraid the latter comment is accurate. I had a V10 bootlooped in 9 months taking some data with it. My first and last LG. Got my warranty refurb unit and sold it for a Huawei. That, for me has more bang for the buck. And the P9 has waaaay better camera then the v10 yet is much cheaper.
My mom had a G4. bootlooped in 11 months also taking all her pictures. Swore never to buy LG again. She has a Samsung now.
My wife had a G4. bootlooped in 14 months. Again taking all her data with it. Bought a samsung never to buy an LG again.
A while back, my sister had a G2. bootlooped in god knows how many months (less than 24). Never bought an LG ever again.
My officemate had a G5 this year. With not too much effort, cracked the screen (known issue), and swore never to buy an LG ever again.
I can go on... but you get the picture.
I loved my v10. I really did. But this bootloop fraud has got to stop. Its a QC thing... And do google the class action lawsuit for G4 and v10 users, to learn more.
Wow V30 specs seem good! Waiting for India launch and prices too. Maybe in Dec 2017 like the V20 launched last winter. That will give me reason to trade in my V20 for this newest beast from LG. Hope this one does well commercially unlike previous LG flagships. On the flip side hoping that it doesn't so that I can pick it up at very reasonable rates within a few months of launch unlike the S series or Iphones which manage to hold on to its pricing for longer periods!!!
Only bummer seems to be low battery capacity for such a big screen since even my V20 was grossly under powered on that front and needed to be charged at least twice a day considering my heavy usage.

This is totally false!
I have an LG V10 since last summer and didn't have any issues with it.
Plus it didn't cost me my skin to buy it, as it would cost you if you buy a Samsung or an Iphone.
And on top of all, they don't even bother to deliver the best user experience, even though the price tag means that they should, and even more...
It is better to have an exclusive phone like LG, than to have a Samsung or an Apple.
Trust me, you don't know what you are talking about!
Rafe Firmani, 31 Aug 2017LG V30 may have f/1.6 but..... Camera sensor only 1/3" vs 1/2.5" HTC U11 Pixel size is just ... moreWhy do you think they used a 16 mp 1/3 sensor? They used to upply 1/2.6 on the LG V20. And I hope they keep useing sensor that large on the V30 as well
Rafe Firmani, 31 Aug 2017LG V30 may have f/1.6 but.....
Camera sensor only 1/3" vs 1/2.5" HTC U11
Pixel size is just ... moreFYI : LG V30 use SONY IMX 398 (Upgrade of SONY IMX 298) with extra Dual Pixel PDAF. Same as OPPO F3 Plus (The first) and OnePlus 5.
Not sure about image quality of V30...
ZloiYuri, 31 Aug 2017For those who never owned lg g2, g3, g4, g5, g6, v10, v20 - don't you think it's strange peopl... moreWow. You're actually telling the truth (to me atleast). Your points are spot on. Owned the LG G4. Never returning to LG ever again.
DON'T BUY THE LG V30 AT LAUNCH.
The price will drop drastically in the first couple months. You will thank me later :)
Rafe Firmani, 31 Aug 2017Can we have a phone with front screen of V30 and HTC u11 liquid glass back..?It won't have mil STD rating then. Way too fragile device
Rafe Firmani, 31 Aug 2017LG V30 may have f/1.6 but..... Camera sensor only 1/3" vs 1/2.5" HTC U11 Pixel size is just ... moreG6 has the same sensor but still produces image which can compete with s8 and u11
Rafe Firmani, 31 Aug 2017LG V30 may have f/1.6 but..... Camera sensor only 1/3" vs 1/2.5" HTC U11 Pixel size is just ... moreWell apple use 1/3" like aperture and fans go happy. Point is its great to have bigger one, at least some improvement unlike someone else. But f1.9 for super wide is fantastic news, its like having 2 main cameras already, colors pop out.
Gsmarena you could have atleast showed us floating bar in action and AOD too
5 Mp front camera ?!?! WTF LG !!! Are you guys crazy or what ??? So disapointed and mad, this is beyond my understanding, a powerhouse, the most important flagship in the history of LG and they put an outdated mediocre 5 Mp FFC, I was waiting V30 launching to replace my old Galaxy Note 3, but this is so frustrating, I'll not buy anymore, sadly my second choice is Galaxy S8 !
They should make the wide angle camera default on such a set up. Eager to see how the screen stands up to Samsung, i think this is the first non samsung 2k oled?
Great phone by the looks of it. If I was in the market for a phablet this is what I'd be buying. It's only as wide as a 5.5" 16:9 screen, but for me that's a positive.
For those who never owned lg g2, g3, g4, g5, g6, v10, v20 - don't you think it's strange people who owned these phones mostly didn't bought next lg phone? LG acting good just in sheets, spect, review. But in real life it's a average second class phones manufacturer. They never fixing bugs, never updating apps or UI to next generation. If you have any bug in app - you will have to look for other app to replace it because lg ignoring bugs in own apps. They can update Android version, but never update UI or even fix any annoying bug in it. You can ask any who owns LG phone - how many real updated in phone life they received and what were improved. Few and nothing. LG is only for very undemanding people.
