The Note 4 duos had removable battery, dual sim with dedicated sd card slot, IR blaster. Samsung realized phone owners will hold on longer to their phones if they can replace worn out batteries or expand memory without sacrificing the 2nd sd card slot. They realized it's not good for long term sales and so henceforth, started removing useful, future proof features for short term glamorous but utterly useless features - wireless charging and waterproofing in exchange for removable batteries, and curved shampoo bottle shaped 18:9 screens to make your 16:9 screen phone look old like 4:3 CRT tv's of the past. Being the Android leader, all the rest had to follow. That includes LG.
Affordability and Features. This is the apparent 'Reasoning to their Madness'. Headphone jack, Removable batteries, IR Transmitter, Physical keyboards, FM Radio, Lanyard ties, Device 'reliability ' ....all seemingly disappearing while smartphone prices increase. OS updates, Constant Bug fix updates, Carrier compatibility issues, seasonal changes in cable and charging req'mts, lack of or poor product support and last but not least.... 'Do I need a new smartphone or should I buy 4 new tires or replace my old refrigerator ?' issue .....are amoung the frustrating dramas consumers today have to deal with. If smartphones sales are on a decline, maybe looking back might shed some light. Maybe it's better to have a new phone every year but that's only feasible if prices fall under $200.00 per device. Maybe if flagship-tier smartphones were more reliable and lasted 5 years, they would have better resale value so those people could upgrade every year. I'm just a stupid consumer with a chicken-like brain. Just throw the feed out and see if I come running but who's responsible for that kind of marketing strategy ?
LG... your V10 and V20 phones are Awesome Outstanding Smartphones that 'check all the boxes' ....for me, that is. IP68, Wireless charging, Glass Backs and loud stereo speakers have never been a selling point for me. Can anyone recommended a V10/V20-like phone for me in 2018 ? ? Please tell me what phones I can buy that have those features. Battery capacity is important, sure.... but for me .....changing an old dying battery myself is more important than capacity. It can mean not having to fork out more money to repair shops and a phone that could potentially last another year or two longer by having a multiple battery swap out system.
pritomhalder, 06 May 2018what should i buy ?? lg v30 or huawei mate 10 pro ?? thanks in advance.. it will be a real ... morei would go with V30,had p10 plus,mate 9,mate 10, good phones, but a black and white camera is nowhere near as useful as a wide angle one.and the battery,although smaller on the lg, will get you about the same sot, cause i don't why but huawei devices seem to drain more battery when talking, i observed this on all their phones i had.
If I was wealthy or money was no problem, I would buy all LG's flagship phones in a heartbeat but would still hope LG would be re-inspired by the V10 and V20. Reviews by techies do matter some but based on real life long freakin term experience.... LG has the Qrown. No one needs to tell me that. And no one (except LG) can change my opinion.
what should i buy ??
lg v30 or huawei mate 10 pro ??
thanks in advance..
it will be a real help if u guys give ur opinion
xXOUSx, 01 May 2018what is your current version and security patch ?If u need decent camera and almost same quality but punctual in updates then surely go for htc u11,IÂ’m sure u wonÂ’t regret,
ItÂ’s bit old design like 2016 models but Htc U11 UI is very close to stock android.
Lg is very weak in providing updates and even they donÂ’t care for monthly security patches but this isnÂ’t the case with Htc U11 ,Htc will provide security patches at least faster then lg.
Design and look wise lg V30 is way better but Htc U11 isnÂ’t too bad either.
Performance wise both are ok.
Camera both are almost same in auto mode but in manual mode no one can beat lg, now u can shoot videos also in manual mode as well.
Updates wise u11 is way better.
Another Blunder of V35 in USA, processors 835 have not been exhausted. Nothing new! Need Renders of V40, what's new!
AnonD-756203, 01 May 2018Which one to buy LG v30+ or HTC u 11? And whygo for v30 bcoz u11 does not have 3.5mm headphone jack

It's the Rat Race which determines the Trend in small Gimmicks. All phones have same Rom & Ram but it's refinement is major issues by companies! Sammy software is much refined than Vivo!
AnonD-440348, 02 May 2018Have you got oreo update? I am from india. Thinking to buy this. Can you share your views on t... moreNo Oreo update till date. Custom roms are available in plenty at xda site. Multitasking is decent enough. No majore bugs that I have noticed till date and battery is pretty good. On a normal day will get around 6 hours of SOT. If you don't mind voiding the warranty and root the device then go for it. If not then look into other options.

Have you got oreo update? I am from india. Thinking to buy this. Can you share your views on the v30+.
My concerns are:
1. I install very huge number of apps. So i need fast multitasking and battery life.
2. Do this phone have bug less usable custom roms? at least can we root?

All V30+ owners are being ripped off, 256 and 6gb are available at same rates, why why LG same year old model just finishing your 835 stock under Think Q banner! Update to Oreo is fairytale. Just good cool pad 2 , 200$ perfect for everything, without going in perfection! I will change every month Cheap Chinese Mobiles, after sixth month start selling them first cum first served basis. No need for Status 1000 $ mobiles
harshzzptl, 06 Apr 2018Did you get an Oreo Update? And are there any issues with the screen. I am planning to buy one... morethere is a commitment to push the update by may. I am trying to get an update on the status of oreo. As a device it is near perfect. I dont see any issues. The OP6 will for sure be a newer device with a better processor and more RAM. But i will need to wait to see the screen quality, Camera quality and the AUdio performance, in comparison to V30+. OP is for sure very good with updates though.

Where LG V30 takes the cake is in the secondary wide angle lens which is awesome. And for using Video in manual mode.
If you disagree then please compare them and see for yourself.
