I turned my LG V30+ into Pixel 2 xl and got the best of two worlds.
Installed all google apps (dialer, calendar, messaging, etc...).
Disabled all LG bloatware and applications using package disabler pro.
Installed Edge Gestures to replace the navigation buttons.
You cannot imagine the impact on speed, battery, performance and smoothness of the phone. ItÂ’s the best ever by now. Nothing can beat its camera wide angle and video recording. Light weight, battery life, no stupid notch, just amazing.

And after upgrading I don't see any Amazon bloatware too. Is it some region specific, don't know. Mine is Asian variant.
I'm not a LG fan boy rather I use phone for my profession.
What I like is almost no bloatware in their phones. And the softwares which are present, they are helpful for day to day activities. And when I switch from one LG to another LG model it is breeze to setup.
I first purchased LG G4, loved the phone but it gave up on me due to bootloop. Again I went with another one this time LG G5, it went down due to bootloop, got it replaced and still serving(but fear is there always in my mind that it might bootloop again :) ).
Now, I got V30 and I'm happy for my decision because of these:
1) OLED Screen: I have sensitive eyes and I use to feel pain while I used G5, but I never experienced with V30. Moreover, screen looks beautiful, in always on display too and since it is OLED only the clock part of LEDs gets activated, thus saving the battery. Moreover, I like the comfort view, wherein the screen can be turned into black and white and minimizes blue light radiation.
2) Battery: It is good and stays strong after heavy use, reason I guess is due to Li-Po. But I miss G5 like design wherein I can swap batteries.
3) Camera: I'm into outdoor activities and the thing I needed always is the wide angle camera and we have some beautiful hardware on this. I use my mirrorless for other shots and for wide angle I get some amazing pics from this. I was considering Huawei P20 Pro but rejected as wide angle was the deal breaker for me.
4) Sound: Again they put some good hardware in it. Sound quality is amazing too.
5) Radiation level: They have least radiation levels in their phone.
6) And finally no more BootLoop issues after G5.
7) We can disable in built softwares
I'll update with any demerits or merits as I experience.
I am wondering if anyone has seen any deal breaker issues on v30 that are worth mentioning? Any repeat issues from LG's past such as moisture detected in charge port as in G6? Also saw back a bit in the posts about Amazon bloatware after updating to Oreo? I am genuinely curious for honest opinions. Phone seems like a beast, am considering purchasing unlocked US model. Thanks everyone.
Don't know the limit, but I'm connecting with my smartwatch and Bluetooth audio speakers simultaneously.

I agree that HTC Sense is the best User Interface. Compared to other Brands, LG is better. See yourself Samsung TouchWiz, Xiami MIUI, Huawei EMUI, Oneplus Oxygen, etc.
Hello... How many bluetooth devices can be connected at same time?
For example smartwatch + headphones...
Shift from LG G6 to this V30+, Best phone ever, with nice big screen, great battery life, Quality camera, better than G6. Recommended to all user.
I don't like this phone. Using it on T-mobile network. I have been using it for the past 8 months. Compared to prior HTC models, the user experience with the LG V30 is limited.
Unfortunately, the HTC U11+ was not working well on T-mo. So, I changed it for this LG V30. The only good thing about this phone is that it works. And that is not good enough in a world of user experience.

I update my lg v30plus with android oreo yesterday, latest version runs mobile very smooth, excellent battery, add new features, boot on mobile screen shows LG V30 + THINQ
Dear Spammer of whichever company you are, LG V30 OREO update is now rolling out. Most users have received the notification. With this, LG has rolled out Oreo to ALL VARIANTS across the globe. Samsung, Huawei and others are yet to do the same. So let's stop this nonsense bickering on V30. You can't really beat 8+ hours of screen on time and performance iwth any other phone with same flagship features (OnePlus is not the same in terms of features).
And before you say bootloop, get lost. 'Cause it hasn't happened in last two generations of LG products.
