FeederEater, 23 Oct 2017Last year, Samsung spent $10 billion for advertising while LG spent $1 billion. Even though LG... moreDamn $10 billion just for advertisement alone?? Samsung could have just put that money to a really great product like making more great phones in mid range level but has tha flagship performance.. But we all know it wont happen basically if you put a high-end hardware specs to a midrange phone it becomes a flagship even if its all made of plastic. Then on the opposite side great quality build but hardware sucks. I like samsung and lg's phones and so as other android phones but the one I really love is sony xperia on a personal thought. Sony's flagship phones are great but the problem is the design. We all known design has a big impact to sell out accordingly secpnd is features and then hardware and build quality. Lg did a great job on the V30 its just expensive.. Even though its cheaper than any other phone that is priced over $1000.

I was replying to Alien's comment (about fragile edges) or to some other comm... moreI think I may be able to help you on your dilemma. Most premium phones nowadays are using glass as a basis for the design, but there are a few phones that stick to the traditional materials of phones. Namely One Plus 5, Nokia 8, and Google Pixel 2/2 XL. I'll be excluding ceramic builds because they are actually more fragile than glass, albeit they can resist scratches like a champ.
One Plus 5 is an amazing phone with a fairly reasonable price. All metal design with Gorilla Glass 5 for the screen, packing the latest hardware sets for optimal performance, and an operating system that beats stock Android in customization. Design-wise it isn't the most amazing phone, as it looks near identical to the iPhone 7. Meaning large bezel with a generic design that screams Chinese ripoff. To add insult to injury, One Plus recently was exposed for collecting user data in secret. They're trying to fix the problem but I doubt it will regain the trust of some users. Otherwise the phone is great aside from the lack of certain 2017 flagship features.
Nokia has a history of crazy memes flaunting its nuke-grade durability. And Nokia continues the tradition with their latest flagship, the Nokia 8. It sports an all metal design with Gorilla Glass 5 as the screen, a dual camera system in partnership with Zeiss, and a full stock Android experience. The design is unique but feels dated due to the new display standards other companies started in 2017 with an all screen design. Nokia 8 lacks that and still continues a large bezel screen in 2017. But if you prefer this design then go for it. The camera is decent with great performance in light and decent performance in low light. The "bothie" feature is still questionable in my opinion. And about the nuke-grade durability, check out JerryRigsEverything's video about the Nokia 8 durability. The phone is built like a tank. The Nokia 8 is a full package but feels bland for a 2017 phone.
Google Pixel 2 is my last recommendation for a metal nobody phone. Do note while it feels like plastic and glass, underneath the plastic-like coating, there is a sheet of aluminum. Pixel had a pretty mixed history of excellence and short comings that makes it a hard buy. In fact, I would make this my least recommended out of the 3 phones I offered due to build quality. The software, camera, and OS is all great, as expected of the Pixel line but the phone had severe problems. For starters, the Pixel 2 just looks ugly in my opinion with all that bezel, albeit the dual stereo-speakers does make up for it. The phone is easily bendable as well due to Google's design flaws (antenna line on the side where the glass and metal is separated snaps with low effort). And the Pixel 2 XL is suffering from severe screen-burn-in problems with the display. Honestly I think the original Pixel is a better choice over this one. But that is up for you to decide.
I do apologize for the not very brief descriptions of each phone, as I don't have any of them to judge clearly. I'd recommend you do research about these choices on your own time if you are interested. Any who, Cheers!

I was replying to Alien's comment (about fragile edges) or to some other comment but I don't know why it doesn't show.
However, I am looking for a phone and I hate these glass phones. I like the quality of S8 but I read it breaks easily and I really don't want to take that risk.

Like the G6, the V30 is surrounded by Gorilla Glass 5 with an aluminum frame on the sides. The glass is pretty shatter resistant, as claimed by the company that made it, but will still shatter like any normal piece of glass.
I personally do not have a V30 to test out the camera quality but based on the pictures taken by other consumers with a V30, the camera is great in well lit situations. Color brightness is vibrant and seems snappy and the wide angled lens seems much more controlled (no fish eye effect of the G6). It performs less in low light but I don't really think it is a problem. Front camera is horrid, like with every other LG device.

Hi i want to ask you for V30 , in Single SIM (Nano-SIM) or Dual SIM (Nano-SIM, dual stand-by) if understand if i install 2 SIM one of them is working as Stand-by , is it a way to do the 2 sims work simultaneously ?
Anonymous, 22 Oct 2017Anybody there ! Can you compare the Lg V30 with the Galaxy S8 , please ? Lg V30 is cost too much .I believe your missing out the point? LG V30 is cheaper than Samsung S8+ and Note 8, same price level of the Galaxy S8. check your carriers pricing again, unless your network provider is having a price drop of the S8/S8+/Note 8 then the V30 is not on sale or any other promotion? that would be the only time it`s costly than S8`s. for some reason LG`s phone price drops faster than Samsung, for the reason Samsung is more well known than LG, LG are known for appliances not smart phones. Overtime Samsung produces great phones especially the Galaxy line ups. The G series of LG`s are great at the same time but nothing compare to the Galaxy line up and Samsung`s phone are well marketed than LG`s and we all know that Samsung try`s to compete with Apple. While LG is trying to compete with Samsung. Of course people will choose the well known product such as those 2 (Apple and Samsung). If your on the Android side and choose Samsung not LG because you said that the LG V30 is expensive than Samsung I`m not surprise.
if your on iOS and you choose iPhone 8 then I`m not definitely surprise at all. do check the price again. I know the V30 is $1000 CAD not US. so in US it must be $899.
... the good v10 , the better v20 and stopped at v30.
looking for 2018 ... v40 !!!!

May I ask why it is so fragile? And could you share some night photos with both cameras (front and rear) just to see how they are?
I purchased my black LG V30+ yesterday and I can't put it down. This is a slick phone. Great response and the fingerprint scanner works flawlessly. The camera is amazingly sharp and has several built in features. The display on this bad boy is so vivid. I was fortunate enough to get a great deal at Sprint. I bought one and got another free for my girl. We were the first to buy one as they just got them in. We took the only 2 they had. Also got a free $99.99 Google Daydream VR headset through a Google/LG promotion they have going on now. Since I got a total of 5 lines I was able to get in on the 5 lines of unlimited for $100 deal. They even dropped the activation cost on the 3 starter phones for the kids and gave me 2 wireless Samsung chargers instead.
Amazing phone but don't even think of not getting a protective case. One drop and this baby's done. I had the Samsung Note4 for over 4 years without a case and finally after 4 years I cracked my screen thus I'm now writing this review of my experience. I highly recommend this phone to any Sumsung die hards on the fence.
Still patiently waiting for this device to become available here. It takes so long.
