It's great to see a smartphone that is packing NFC, IR blaster, f/1.6 dual 13MP camera with glass lens, P-OLED full-vision display, Refined Quad DAC, 6" display 80%+ screen to body ratio. Its my dream phone!!
But since its said to have IP68 there is less possibility of a removable back. Even then i wish it packs a bigger battery preferably above 3500 mah and Quick charge 4+. And I dont think LG will do away with external storage.
LG is trying hard to push Nougat updates to several of its devices. Even LG G4(2014) recieved Nougat as promised, even though it took a lot longer. Maybe the V30 might just come with Android O 8.0. Waiting desperately for the release on August 31.
Anonymous, 10 Aug 2017That's what I do. But it won't be an option in the future. The high-end smartphones are sup... moreIts more like an urban concept phone. They probably imagine most users as super busy city folks who got no time to listen to fm radio. That is most probably the main target market. It is definitely not for all type of people phone.
Maeguk, 10 Aug 2017Why should it have radio? 2 from 100 people want radio in a smartphone.These are not final specifications,. FM radio will have it safe.

Luxor, 10 Aug 2017Then go buy a phone with fm radio. No need to buy this LG V30. That's what I do. But it won't be an option in the future.
The high-end smartphones are supposed to be all-in-one high tech devices. Not these dumbed down, shiny fashion accessories like iPhones, Samsung phones since S6 and LG phones since G6.
I agree. I bought a V20 because Samsung started sealing in their batteries. I won't buy a V30 with a sealed battery. I will buy another V20 to have an extra. They should market the unsealed battery and they would sell more. I don't understand why anyone would want a sealed battery after the Note 7 fiasco. Not me. No thanks.

jan V30, 04 Aug 2017Lastly,after these amazing features.i hope 6/128gb version with IR blaster... For the last ti... moreSecond that!!! The IR blaster is one of the things I often use the most. I don't care for a radio since you can stream most radio stations using TuneIn or other apps. Yet the IR blaster is a must keep because it's essential when you misplace the remote or when it breaks. It's one item that has kept me purchasing LG phones, well that and the removable battery (godsend on any long day trip) so I can keep taking video/pictures just by swapping out the battery when it dies, I have always carry a spare. I really feel that LGs camera and video would not be as useful if you can't swap a battery. Keep those quality items in your phone and just update the components and you have the best device out there. My computer I just swap out newer/faster components for the old ones but I still keep DVD or floppy drive for when I might need it.
I HOPE this time lg do 2 version for all world withe :
wireless charging / IR command / FM RADIO / and stop version 32 64 gb
NOT Korea have wireless charging and others not have ?? thats crazy
and the 2 version one have one sim card and other have 2 sim card
not like G6 they prodect 15 version ..and no one of theme have all options in one phone
Luxor, 08 Aug 2017Buy a radio and put it at home. No need to buy fancy smartphone.The phone should have radio. Phones should replace separate devices.
grissom0925, 12 Jul 2017I bought LG V20, because it has removable battery, dual sim card + dedicated microSD card slot... moreYep I agree
the V20 is too big LG launch LG Q8 sealed in battery
V30 looks like another mini version you bet sealed in battery
LG cannot compete with Samsung if it offers the same as Samsung sealed in battery
It will pull customers who don't want a sealed in battery
FYI if the Note 7 had a removable battery Samsung would not have had to pull the Note 7 and made note 7 users mad
Pakalini, 05 Aug 2017FM is a must if you want hear local newsBuy a radio and put it at home. No need to buy fancy smartphone.
Add a notification LED please! I've seen people complaint about the G6 not having one and I understand why. I realise that the always on mode will be even better with amoled, but at night, even that might be too much light. With only one LED you can see if for example your phone is charging or not.
Vi, 31 Jul 2017LG, Please 6.2'' is just too LONG for a phone. Try and make LG V30, 5.2'' or 5.7'' maxOn the contrary I would like the phone to be 6". 5.2 is small.
WarEagle2010, 04 Aug 2017Poor LG...just like 90% of the smartphone makers just don't understand the importance of havin... moreI have never listened to radio free-willingly. It's just garbage coming from there. Have not heard people complaining about the missing fm radio in a phone in my whole life.
Anonymous, 05 Aug 2017FM Radio is very necessary even more than nightly bread FM is a must if you want hear local news
Poor LG...just like 90% of the smartphone makers just don't understand the importance of having a built-in FM radio. Samsung S8 has one but they don't even advertise it!
One day battery life will allow streaming over 4G for a long time but with FM radio it really helps with battery life all day.
