DP19, 30 Nov 2017This phone is excellent.
If you have concerns with the Front-Facing Camera, adjust the lig... moremY htc u11 sot is 5 hours consistently.
One thing I dislike beside front camera is navigation buttons. It's too plain, too big and ugly.
Why can't they make it look like samsung or HTC U11+ navigation buttons
The STBR is the best I've seen on android phone and the DAC is excellent addition!
This phone is excellent.
If you have concerns with the Front-Facing Camera, adjust the light and skin tone settings and use the flash every time. It makes your face look far better when you're not in direct natural light.
As for the Skin, I don't think people give LG enough credit. Their bundled widgets look really good and integrate well with Google Accounts such as calendar. I made a massive improvement to the look by installing Black Pixel theme. It is white text and icons on a black background, with blue accents. It looks really good (and a bit better than the orange accents in the high contrast theme, but if you prefer orange then it does work well - it just wasn't to my tastes.)
The battery life is hard to comment on, because I live in an area of outer Sydney with acceptable reception but varying cell signal strength, which does impact on battery life. However, I noticed over an hour more screen on time compared to my HTC 10 with similar usage but all of the following extras: a bluetooth device connected at all times (either a Xiaomi Mi Band 2 or an LG Watch Urbane 1st Gen (no LTE). I also leave location services and history on, as well as wifi and bluetooth scanning. I didn't do these things with the HTC 10. My usage does involve regular web browsing, social media usage (facebook, twitter, instagram, snapchat), lots of music playback, and I am please with battery life and manage 3.5-4 hours screen on time to a charge.
This phone is 600usd in Hong Kong now. Except mediocre battery life and front camera, phone looks ok..
Front Selfie Cam is a Rut, why I understand started from V20 G6 till this. See price is abnormal, no other model in line, still no adverts nor sales available, all in limbo. This standard is not called for.
This is a nice phone. Good features. The only problems are the trashy 5 MP front camera and the boring User Interface from LG. LG has been pushing their luck with the same old school and low clarity 5 MP front camera since G6, V20 and now even the G6 Plus and the V30 as well. It is also not a decent 5 MP at that, images are a little blurry or hazy. LG needs to step up their game or lose ground. The UI from LG is simple and clutter free but very boring, icons look outdated. If these don't matter to you, then it is a great phone at a good price.
they took the dual sim + dedicated sd slot out of v30. i hoped the v30+ got it back.....but it didn't. although the v20 has a fair bit on screen issues. its 2 sim + sd slots benefits people who are frequent traveler. the video orientated camera would be great, it is perhaps one of the few that has that feature.
I believe that it could be a trend setter if it did not take away whats impressive and rare in the first place. (after all, this is a phone to start with).
Finally, after 3 months of waiting (i am actually waiting for this phone for a lot longer, like from June when first rumors started coming out), it will be available in my country (not officially) for 750 euro, and that is LG V30+. I guess that V30 will be around 700 when it becomes available. I will come back in few days to update this.
It is obvious something abnormal must have happened, V30 was never officially launched anywhere in the world, only south Korea homeland. Now it's worthless to buy above 500$ Mystery is still unresolved, only speculations!
Nikhilesh, 28 Nov 2017When it will be launching in India?Dec 1st week 49990 price
We do not want bootloader or updates to oreo, pls release it in december, my money is waiting for lg v30....
i have already s8 plus 128 gb black .i think v30 same as s8 plus.
IÂ’m waiting for V30. I see adds for the V30 on tv saying available soon. ItÂ’s almost December and I still canÂ’t buy it anywhere.
Lg V30 is the best looking smartphone.It has everything as the other smartphones have. However,ithe camera is NOT good in comparison. DO NOT get this one- LG V30 - unless you DO like it . Period.
Lutfi, 20 Oct 2017Deville I don't know if u have ,but u can actually get a hold of a v30 in Dubai , the other da... moreYou know what? I went to LG in Dubai Mall this weekend and asked them and they have NO DEMO UNIT! I even asked if they have a unit shown on special request or if they had one in past as a friend said he saw it and the lady said no...so I don't know how you managed to see this V30! She said phone will be launched in Dec and in 2nd week they'll have demo unit
My patience is over and I've decided that after seeing G6, S8 twins, Note8, Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro (yep that's in store too on pre-order), the best phone for me is Note8...even the price has reduced now-$740 without freebies. Will buy it in next 2 weeks. I won't go for the Mix2 or Pixel 2 XL even if they launch here and the LG screen issues seem like a big gamble to take with the V30
News reports finally saying that India launch is sometime in Dec. No details on whether v30 plus will be simultaneously launched. About time.
