I think LG is sleeping or forget to prepare firmware updates for LG V30 plus for last 5 months. I am saying truthfully and after serious thought that I will never buy anything from LG electronics in the future. Because all they do is dump their unsold LG v30 phones in India and never care about after sale operations.
Apart from dull display colour issues it is a very good smartphone or better than Samsung galaxy phones. After last update it's battery life has taken a big hit and since then its 2/3 of earlier screen times.
its been 5 months since i received my last security update for my lg v30+ indian version.
2019, finally i bought one, love it so far got solid build, front camera not really that good, but still usable, main camera and superwide angle good for me you can use Gcam to improve the image quality and add more features...

I would go with V30 plus as it has:
1) P-OLED screen (better to my eyes) as IPS LCD used to give me a headache if I use it for longer time.
2) More wider and less longer comparing to G7 so watching videos and other stuff looks better(personal choice). Some people like different screen ratio.
3) Battery capacity is little better.
Rest upto your requirement.

Budlife182, 31 Dec 2018Why is GSM Arena discriminatory towards LG Phones? I see that V30 has 1144 fans but it is not ... moreRight. I also saw that and casually put up a query asking about the reason. But these guys didn't reply.
James, 21 Dec 2018Is this phone still worth it at 2018? I'm thinking to buy it but scared to face issues like the G6Yes V30 or V30+ are still worthed and cheaper in 2019. Good value for money.
Why is GSM Arena discriminatory towards LG Phones? I see that V30 has 1144 fans but it is not listed on the Top Phone by Fan list. Why such a bias?
Excellent smartphone. Best audio quality and camera perfomance.Previously used lg v20. Only one things lg are bad in os update. I never found any upade in my lg v20 let see lg v20.
Is the quad dac on v30 enabled or disabled for european (East Europe) market? Because I've read that the quad dac on g6 are enabled by default only for korean market.
I was a Samsung fan boy for many years. Lately I switched from s8 plus to LG v30 plus. It was like magic. The sound output from quad hifi dac is jaw dropping. Battery life is awesome compared to my Samsung s8 plus. Extremely satisfied. Only draw back is the LG GUI looks half baked compared to samaung.
James, 21 Dec 2018Is this phone still worth it at 2018? I'm thinking to buy it but scared to face issues like the G6If you plan to buy this now, there's nothing to be scared of, really. In fact, you'll be amazed of its price to performance ratio. But if you're the type of person whose priority is to take selfies almost everyday and is particular with the quality of the front cam than the rear, then you may skip this. Front cam is subpar compared to other brands' previous and current flaghship smartphones. I didn't own a G6 so I don't know what issues you're worried about. I am currently using a V30+. So far, there are only two (2) issues I have able to experience: First, the blue shift, which can be obviously seen if you tilt the screen. This is tolerable if you ask me. Screen color can be calibrated or tweaked in an instant to your liking in the settings. And lastly, the grainy effect with a noisy or dirty texture right in the screen and can be easily seen if you look closely. I assume this is just a software issue. I hope this will subside in the next update. Keep in mind that the resell value of the LG smartphones are so low that for example, you can buy a used V30+ or a G7 now for roughly $340 and $357 respectively.
