Using V30+(dual sim variant) for around a month. HereÂ’s my experience:
Display: Vibrant color, screen is not so bright under sunlight and the Â“blue screenÂ” is actually not so obvious as you will get use to it too
Phone signal: Excellent, call quality is amazing
Battery: Ard 6hrs of screen on time, at least 4hrs with intensive gaming(vainglory) and also at least 3.5hours screen on time if I use from 6am to 11pm due to work/school
Design: Pretty amazing, one of the thinnest and lightest flagship made in 2017 while maintaining all necessary hardwares
Camera: DidnÂ’t really Â‘wowÂ’ me but wide angle lens is the only one that attracts me to use the camera more. Manual mode is amazing, lots of options to tune
Charging: Pretty quick and has a bonus of wireless charging
Software experience: Really love some of the extra settings that LG provides but the home launcher was a turn off for me(personal preference)
Speakers: Just average

How is the phone after the update from tmobile usa? Any problems? Thanks
Loving my LG V30+. It just feels so good in my hand with it's form factor & light weight.
Screen is gorgeous apart from it's minimal blue shift. (which doesn't bother me)
Battery life is the main surprise for me. Running at dark theme, I'm in no urgency to charge the device during my day. 6 hours SOT++ consistently with around 20% battery left.

All the reviews I have seen to date pitting Snapdragon against Exynos, the latter always beats the former. Exynos (minutely) lags behind in the graphics department but not in any noticeable way. Otherwise I would go for Exynos over Snapdragon anytime. You should consider it too. Oh one more thing, Snapdragon gets excessively a warmer than Exynos on the same scale. Put that in mind as well. Pick your Note bro 😁😁. Fret not.

You will buy Mate10 Pro or you already have it and it wins over V30.
Many thanks !

I have been using this phone for about one month. It has been a great experience so far for me. The battery life is pretty amazing on this phone. Only one small issue with the messaging notification. It pops up repeatly. Anyone please advise how to stop the repeated notifications.

I would say that the LG V30 is arguably the best all-rounded smartphone on the market! What more should you expect from a smartphone? Sadly, I haven't had the chance yet to buy it, but I badly want one in the near future to come. Currently, I am using an LG G5 which is also a pretty awesome smartphone, keeping in mind that if the G5 is one of the best for its time, now the V30 is even more improved and simply the best. As an LG and HTC fan, I would say that Samsung, Huawei, Apple and all the other brands are just merely trying to catch up with this masterpiece but the truth is that there's still a long way to go! :)

And of course with IR blaster.
External sd card was reason to buy it (over Mate 10) as it's easy to salvage photos if phone dies, this is where Mate 10 really disappoints me.
Summary: not bad phone, but all these 3-4 top hones, Mate, Note, V30+, Apple X should be cheaper. We are still paying too much for features that are normal to expect, none of them is clear winner. None of them has some specific brilliant feature that would make you say, camera on xy phone is 100% better, and i just went for it... Some old Sonny phones have clearer night shots, old Butterfly 3 has 20MP camera and all features as these new ones, old Galaxy S could easily join this gang as well and these older ones have acceptable prices and are just bit lower quality in details. I really expected bigger difference between old and new generation of phones.
PS: the reason why I didn't take Note8 into consideration to buy is that phone for EU market isn't snapdragon based - all reviews I have seen are based on snapdragon, so what I read on web is not what I will get if I buy it here in EU.
I just got V30+ and I expected more from the camera. Some photos have pale colors, even my cheap old phone had better saturation. Regarding details, 16 MP catches details well, but not spectacular. Regarding wide angle, it's awesome. When doing camera shots where sun is behind the subject - shots are surprisingly good and exposure compensation is surprising good (I don't understand how they managed to achieve this - impressive). Regarding sound quality and quad DAC, it's nothing spectacular, any good media player has equalizer that does the same thing as quad DAC. Sound strength is not strong enough (considering quad DAC), looks like amplifier inside isn't strong enough to cover the noise of the airplane (if you are frequent flyer noise cancellation isn't really good, actually no noise cancellation while using headphones to listen music). Battery life is just for one day with normal use. Night videos if people are moving/dancing can get blurry. Phone comes with no bloatware, so no need to root it and remove crap; my respect for this as well. Back button to turn off the phone is bit inconvenient, side button would be better (reason, when you push back button to turn it on/off, you need to apply counter-force with finger on the screen to keep the phone in your hand, otherwise it will pop-out from your palm). Finger recognition is 100% working all the time. GPS receiver was more sensitive with my old HTC Butterfly 3 (e.g. in the airplane GPS would work on HTC, but here you need to move phone next to the airplane window - metalic body penalty, htc butterfly was all plastic). Summary: I will buy Mate 10 pro, compare it and sell one I like less on the ebay. I love Mate 10 pro IR blaster to control airco and light from my bed.
