I am going to buy the V30 or the upcoming Pixel XL2 to replace my Nexus 6
Looks like S8 without edges, with dual rare camera and with finger sensor at more better position 300$ more expensive could not spot any other major difference.
Aadrian, 11 Sep 2017Yes it has built in FM radio.explained in this link
3.5mm jack: yes. Good on you LG for having a refreshingly not new 3.5mm jack! Immediate leg up on the Pixel 2
Sams, 11 Sep 2017Does it have an FM radio?Yes it has built in FM radio.
Mattew, 11 Sep 2017What does P-Oled mean? Plastic OLED, instead of glass LG Display used plastic for this OLED screen.
Friend of mine from US told me about the V20,that US version didn`t have QuadDAC built in,and no B&O earphones in the retail box.Is that true?I`ve read that those things were almost exclusively for Korea..earphones I won`t miss so much,but DACs...?
Well,LG will it be the same with V30?If I buy one in EU,and pay silly price for it(1000$+!!) will I get those goodies or not?I`m an Hi-FI audiophile and I believe those things are defining characteristics of that phone (for a few of us who think similar) along with new display and camera,and both seems to be great..
AnonD-293392, 10 Sep 2017Here's my beef with this... they list this phone as having a much larger screen than the V20. ... morehave you consider the screen aspect ratio?
V20 is 16:9 while V30 is 18:9
and dont forget the size of those bezels on V20
thats why even though having 6 inch display the V30 size is smaller.
S8 is slightly smaller at 18.5 : 9 aspect ratio
Yes, the screen size is quite ridiculous, as claimed. How it can be smaller than the V30's main screen, yet quoted as larger, is beyond me. I really should have taken a picture of this phone next to the 5.9" screen of my GPro2. The lit screen portion of the phone absolutely dwarfs the V30's screen, yet the V30 is claimed larger. Ignore screen sizes claimed on these phones, and compare them in the store, vs. what you already have, and vs. other phones for sale. There seem to be a lot of creative statistics floating around.

Phones with removable battery are dying, phablets are becoming the reference...
I will stick with my LG G4 forever apparently...
I envy these newer LG phones, especially with the V30 having the OLED display. Makes me wonder why I bought the G5 a year back. This is what a real competitor to the Note series look like!
Here's my beef with this... they list this phone as having a much larger screen than the V20. In fact, holding them side-by-side, the V20 screen is physically larger (and I'm not including the 2nd screen on the V20). What needs to be done is to have a "surface area" measurement of some kind that gets the mention. The V30's usable area is less than that of the V20, and considerably smaller in all usable area than the old GPro2 that I wanted to replace this phone with. The V30 looks and feels a lot smaller than the Note8. In fact, the V30 is likely smaller than the Galaxy 8, when you actually hold them side-by-side, comparing the screen real-estate. I honestly don't know how they are considering new to old measurements even comparable? This phone's usable screen is just tiny, compared to my GPro2... and yes... I'm even counting the area with the on-screen buttons as screen real estate. Disappointed.
