Else enjoy and focus on good part of phone, also s8 screen replacement costs 50% of phone price, and glass phone can get damages for small drops, also for s8 cant buy proper screen guard

LG is not known for quick updates. In fact they may be a bit more slower than Samsung. I would gladly choose Samsung Experience UX than an LG UX updated slowly.

V30 is a good phone no doubt, I think your concern about the front cam might be over with an update. On the other hand the S8 has a really good front cam which I'm really pleased with even in low light conditions. As far as the upates are concerned yes they make some or the other changes to your phone, for example I updated my S8 to the October security patch and got the "super slow motion" & "AR emoji" which is really handy. Don't worry I think the future updates might fix the minor issues on the V30. Hope you enjoy your new phone :-)

The videos I've seen so far doesn't match up with my current Moto X4 or my old Xperia XZ. And the slow motion video looks 480p quality which is really bad.

But I am not sure and I want to find out if there has been any enhancements to the camera since release i.e. overall quality, sharpness, dynamic range, sharpness, clarity & detail especially the selfie camera as I think the 5MP is just not enough for those all-important selfies.
What do you think?

And s8 is compact power house, No need to worry as you bought lg v30, both are good phones, in my view better than Chinese phones, and I think better than iPhone 7. You just bought v30, and enjoy, forget about rest, I saw your post on s8 page too

For photo and daily use Samsung would do better. However people say LG wins in battery/design perspective. It's also cheaper.
I did something that I feel I may either regret or felt it was a good deal. I bought a brand-new LG V30 for only £450. I got frustrated waiting and looking for a good S8/S8+ deals online (mainly on ebay) but it just fizzled out.
Any thoughts about the V30 vs the S8+? Do you guys think I made the right choice?
Anonymous, 18 Oct 2018Which is better - LG V30, Samsung S8, OnePlus6 or Huawei Mate 10 pro? Any advice would be much... moreWhen I was considering and looking for options, I had a budget for Galaxy S9+. I still went with V30, reason being this is the best thing you can get for lower price range.
I used G4, G5 and was thinking to go out and buy some other device apart from LG but frankly speaking, I compared and came back to V30 :)
LG doesn't market their product, I don't know what's their policy but their phones are too good with minimum bloatware. Use it and you will experience it. I'm not a LG fanboy it's just my opinion.
Moreover, I would recommend you to do some research and go with what you feel is good.
Which is better - LG V30, Samsung S8, OnePlus6 or Huawei Mate 10 pro? Any advice would be much appreciated
Hello V30 users,
I have a question if anybody experienced this.
I tried capturing starry nights via manual settings with f1.6 camera(not wide angle one) and settings were 25 seconds shutter speed, 1200 iso, manual focus, voice navigated shutter click(Cheese, so as to avoid shakiness). I found results were not satisfactory. Stars were always in the shape of what an image of a sperm looks like :D
I tried turning off stabilisation, decreasing the shutter speed to 20, 15, 30 seconds, changing manual/automatic focus, iso etc but results were never right.
But, results came out good with wide angle lens. I never faced this problem with my LG G5 too.
And I always used Cheese shutter mode to avoid touching the phone.
Can someone please test this and let me know if the issue is common to all?
Else I'll get my phone replaced. Thanks.

Hi LG fans,
do you have idea when the Android Oreo will be available for LG v30+ for Philippines and Egypt aswell,Im still stuck at Android 7..please advice
WHY I SOLD MY LG V30? - Warning to buyers
I used this phone for almost 4-5 months. Coming straight to point - OLED Display of this phone is hit and miss, if you are lucky you get good one, if not you get one with uneven brightness sometimes on upper side, sometimes lowerside of display.
Service Center and company official communication states that they DONT consider this as a defect and it is a characteristic of OLED display.
Apart from the above reason, LG V30 is THE BEST phone in the market. Unfortunate that display was a deal breaker.

It is free in Google play store.
Im looking for a news and stories app like google now for LG V30 +. i previously had huawei mate 10 and loved the google now app, i mean i didnt need to open the app for reading news. just a left scroll on my home screen and there i had it, very convenient indeed.
but it doesnt work like that for LG. they just have the google search bar. can u recommend a way of getting google now on homescree(no widget), or else is there any other worthwhile news app?
Best phone I ever had. This is my first LG phone. I had Samsung, iPhone, and BlackBerry before and this is by far the best. Long battery life, great pictures, great pho e overall.
I recorded songs in a concert and I just could not believe the quality ... It's just beautiful especially when I turned the QDAC on.
