V30+DS variant has not received Oreo, nor expected, maybe by may, could take a month. Rest is history! Every new variant when launched was worth 850$ then 6gb ram came now, 256 Rom with 6gb Ram. All this gimmickery to finish their 835SD processors! Silly Timid move from LG!
Ajaam, 19 Apr 2018Lg v30+ or samsung s8 Tomorrow i want to buy one of itSold my s8 bought the lgv30... Its a better phone... Buy some sound magic e50c or e80c and be prepared to be blown away by the audio
Coops, 11 hours agoAre you UK. IÂ’m checking everyday for the update but nothing I'm in the UK.... Carphone warehouse UK model lgv30.... Maybe Google lg Bridge and try that method of updating

crazyboys.tp, 19 Apr 2018Absolutely true. Battery life is great and everything else except Software update part. What i... morei received android 8.0 , maybe we will get 8.1 , i wont hold my breath , the updates can be a little disappointing , but the way i see it is my lgv30 running android 8.0 can still do more then vanilla android running 8.1 .
tap to wake is a killer feature , tap to close is great , split screen works well , battery life is immense , we have all the features from the new operating system already
coming from samsung , they are also pretty poor on updates , everyone is apart from nokia and google really .
what new features are you going to miss from 8.1 or the next version of android?
who knows maybe because lg have so many variants of the lgv30 running the same chipsets etc they will keep them more updated
it would be nice to have the latest but to be honest id rather have the quad dac ;-)
i had to LG G6 but lost it last week so ordered the V30 had it for 2 days but it is a great phone also got the oreo update yesterday.
only slight issue is the blue tint but i am getting used to it.

I own V30+ model and no news of update yet. Its such a disappointment to have a flagship device with an old android version and see people having other mid range device with the latest OS. Huawei even had started testing Android P on the Mate 10 Pro. I hope we get the Oreo 8.1 at least. No hopes of android 'P' for V30+ . Keeping my finger crossed and hoping to get the global roll out by next week.....

Just got the oreo update in the UK on the original 64gb model that was first released
The update included all the ai features from the newer models... Something Samsung never would have done
The phone has been a pleasure to use since November, I'm still not missing my s8 at all.
7 hours screen on time is a regular occurrence, the phone is fast, it runs smooth, the screen is gorgeous, the audio is the best I've ever heard in a phone
The people hating on the lgv30 don't even own it, the people who do absolutely love it and have dumped other high end phones to item one
I paid 600 for mine but you can get the 128gb model from wonda mobile for 483 pounds. That's an absolute bargain for what you get
I'm looking forwards to the lgv40, I hope they improve the front facing camera and the main cameras but there really isn't much more to improve on this already awesome phone
Why arenÂ’t they picking up signals from public feed back! Now a dud G7 revealed which too will be dead lock! Either they get out of mobile business, or copy one plus model! Their 6 model is already hot! My deal wud be to ignore, maybe then listen!

For you the simple solution,since i see you love the V10 so much,keep it.But do leave the V30 alone cause just because it isn't your cup of tea it dose not mean it is not a great phone.

LG ruined everything with the G6 and V30 by following the stupid fashionphone trend. G7 and V40 will be even worse, because they will have notch and no bezels.
V30 is the best Smartphone I Have ever used...LGÂ’s mistake no promotion, no any advertising...All around the world in the various airports you will found Samsung both with testers of S9 and all othe flagships...LG V30 only in the box....If someone never tried an LG phone or never travelled in Asia, mostly Korea and Hong Kong, practically has no chance to see it alive ..but only in YouTube and from various sites which leading the market as they like or as their interest order.....
V30 is an excellent phone and sometimes I am wondering...why LG made this phone since they don want to promote it to the market!
If V30 was made by Samsung will be the Best seller ever....
Does anyone know about the battery life? I know it's 3300 mAh but it's not all about the capacity is it? I want realistic day to day usage data. How long does it take to drain from max to zero?
