Rimac , 03 Feb 2018The V20 sole inconvenience is the small original battery. Easily solved by extended batteries. Thanks! I've been using the Moto X style/pure for nearly 3 years and the battery life is terrible.. I'm lucky to get 2.5-3 hours screen on time using a custom ROM. Moto's own firmware will only give me about 2 SOT
I feel so very happy that the price of this great phone has come down very much. now we can buy some. I will go to the 2 most popular stores in my country to get one. I really need one for great camera and greatest audio experience. The only flagship phone that has radio. Amazing! Well done LG.

I'm considering buying the V20 and wondered what the battery life is like and if it's worth still purchasing? I'm not a fan of the 18.9 displays...
V30 has broken everybody's heart from dually chain to availability to price and only black or steel scarcely available. Selfie & auto rear cam are bullshit, no after sales service nor repair shop nor parts available. Not Dubai and HK selling with HP laptops with it. Failure in Toto!
Had V20. Upgraded to V30+. Dissapointed - bluetooth audio quality worse comparing to V20! Same equipment, same apps installed in phone and wtf... Does anyone else can confirm same experience?

Anonymous, 23 Jan 2018V30 is cheaper? Actually V30 plus more expensive than note 8 "+" and not "+" version have the same price in the Europe. It seems that these independent sellers who import "+" version from HongKong have better price than LG therefore both prices are actually identical. From lessons learned, I would not buy phone from another region (mainly service issues).
After 7 days of use my V30 plus fails to play music on headphones, right channel has no sound. Problem with audio jack. LG Europe official support service refuses to fix it as V30+ is not sold in EU by LG but only by independent importers. I have to send it to HongKong. They claim that no service exists in Germany, BeNeLux. Scarry.
It's already set to be last, of V series as Confirmed by LG, due to poor supply chain and availability. Now LG has delayed G7 whenever they fit to Launch. Like wise V40 is now a dream come True. Frankly LG should wind up mobile division to concentrate on home applications. One model launch in Sept has yet to reach market freely. No demand as such, Chinese are more better in all respects, only phobia to be removed.
Well I got the V30+ in India on 20th thinking of selling my HTC U11. Here are my review comparing them along with S7 edge (my wife's mobile).
Few clarification about my LG V30+ unit compared to comments from others.
My device have a display with uniform brightness. No light bleed issue or screen burn issue nor blurry screen at grey or low bright nor extreme color shift issue (Slight blue shit is there but its minor). No gaps in between glass sandwich design also.
Pros of LG V30+ over HTC U11.
1. Even though V30 is lighter than U11 it feels sturdy in hand.
2. The 18:9 display is very good and you will feel it once you start using it.
3. Primary camera performs great in manual mode but in auto mode its far from U11's stellar camera. Wide angle camera is great though.
5. Battery life is great on Both devices.
6. Inky black display on OLED display is always great.
7. Headphone jack is there with quad dac amp which shows its might.
8. V30 simply shines at video mode and no second thought at it.
Pros of HTC U11 over LG V30+
1. HTC has 2 more GB of RAM (Indian Unit) which clearly reflects on multitasking.
2. U11's and even S7 edge's rear camera simply are great in auto mode with ample detail and great dynamic range compared to V30.
3. Selfi Camera on HTC is miles ahead of mediocre one on LG. LG's front cam really SUCKS!!!
3. Boom Sound HTC Speaker output is simply awesome. Even though LG's speaker is loud, its output is simply flat.
4. HTC's UI is simple and almost near stock android. V30's optimization is good but is still lacks refinement.
Some common things:
1. Both have 128gb of internal memory with dual hybrid sim slots.
2. Network reception are great in both devices.
3. Battery life is great on both handsets.
4. Display saturation is also great in both devices.
Well guys you woun't be disappointed with either devices. But Kudos to LG for providing a great device after a long time.
FancyCake, 19 Jan 2018Hello guys!
Today i got my V30+ that i bought new from a Ebay seller, and it has a screen pro... moreSadly i think its not a gap/factory problem either. I think the same and claimed it to the shop. It tooks almost one month of check with going back and forth until they finally send it to lg service for check. Result? A waste of month with my phone declared not faulty and returned
Seriously, please dont make such a faulty device lg!

Jopps, 18 Jan 2018Hi guys, does LG V30 has face recognition unlock or iris scenner unlock? Thanksyes it does and its good.. tried it in a low light condition
collateral, 22 Jan 2018V20 was 550$ when launched, now if you trade paying extra 400 comes to 950. Its no use V30+ us... morehere is a link for that v30+ offer (which should be finished by today)
also i believe that the v20 launch price was 640$ where i live, thankfully i didnt get it at launch.
to each his own needs, i really need that powerfull headphone jack.
abdullah, 19 Jan 2018in my saudi arabia theres is an offer to exchange your old LG V20 or LG G6 for 50% discount. ... moreV20 was 550$ when launched, now if you trade paying extra 400 comes to 950. Its no use V30+ us just Jab in our eyes, no resale plus selfie horrible, plus after 8 months released an double internal, where as card 20$ would suffice. Rest LG have themselves excepted no need for regular upgrades, but substantial leap of technology. Meaning V50 could Cope!

i would recommend returning your unit.
The camera on this phone is total B.S. . IF your subject is anything more than 15ft, the entire picture will blur and Pixelate. This happens with both cameras!!! Do not buy this phone!!! I am very disappointed with LG for scamming people with this phone and I am also disappointed with GSMARENA for not mentioning this OBVIOUS problem with this phone!
