It was just released in my country (not officially) and it is available for 715Â€ for LG V30+ Dual in Lavender Violet (normal V30 is not available). There is only one seller that offers Aurora Black V30 for 790Â€ and Moroccan Blue for 735Â€ (the prices are so different bcs there are only 5 sellers in total). I really wanted the blue one, but i think it is not worth an extra money and i just disliked Silver and Black V30s as they kinda look as every other phone, boring imo. I really wanted the blue one but now i see that even violet looks amazing, so i will probably get that one.
This is one of the best all around phones that you can get right now. I upgraded from LG G4, with no regrets. The screen is gorgeous. Yes you can see the blue shift if you look at it from certain angle, but on day to day use, you do not see it. The camera set up is awesome. You will find the set up of wide angle and normal trumps normal and telephoto or black and white. It just that much more usable. The DAC is unbelievable. It makes listening to music much more enjoyable. And yes, it has a headphone jack. I will never buy a smartphone with out the headphone jack. The battery life is awesome compared to my G4. I get at least a day out of it without worrying.
My last comment is against all the pundits that complain about the bloatware and LG skin. I got my phone through Telus in Canada. The only extra app that is installed on my phone is my Telus App for my account - that is it!! The expert reviewers that complain about carrier provider bloatware should leave their complaints to the carrier not LG. I like the LG skin for it apps and customization. Some apps are useful and some are not. LG allows you to customize your phone like no other phone. I have tried Samsung and Apple and they pale in comparison to what you can do with your smartphone with LG.
Overall I think this is probably one of the most complete smartphone that is currently available.
Bought mine on 1st Dec. One day earlier than the official launch in Singapore.
Only started using it on 6th Dec after i got my tempered glass and protective case.
I tested the screen. No defect for me. So glad that i get it. The battery is good. Can last me from 8AM to 10PM with two hours of music listening, a few photo shoots, a few videos watching and lots of FB and internet browsing and YouTubing.
Still getting used with the UI. UI is pretty but a bit weird especially with the gallery. User problem i guess.
Love the camera especially the wide angle camera.
The front facing camera is not the best but is better than my expectation.
I do not need the front camera to be super clear for selfie. Too much details of my skin is not a good idea.
Love the Moroccan Blue color. The phone was out of stock on the actual launch day itself.
The only complain i have is LG marketing. Hope they improve in this.
It's finally available in at least 1 webshop in the Netherlands, 899 with 75 euro cashback, which makes it 824 euro. Only the blue variant is available as the silver color is temporarily sold out.

Great phone! Been using it for just over a week and its a nice upgrade from my 2 year old Nexus 6P. For the Reviewers/ Consumers that say the display is "Terrible", It's either they are too nitpicky or they got V30s with some screen defect. Yes it does have a blue color at off angles but during normal usage I barely notice it. Mine was made in November 2017 so maybe the displays got a bit better compared to the ones released earlier. I like the auto-brightness feature, it works really well for me. I like pure android but I don't mind LG's UI at the moment since there are lots of customization options. Good camera(i hope an update will fix some minor issues), great design, great display, battery lasts for a full day and The Best Audio on a smartphone in 2017 :)
2 month from now and v30 price will drop like crazy since the Htc u11 6GB, 128GB variant Same chipset yeah desgin might be not as good as v30, but camera front and back sound quilaty on both speakers and ear bud and overall performance still way better than v30.
Its best mobile of 2017.. but 2017 going to end.. but still not available in India
Many people brought oneplus 5T instead of V30. due large waiting time.
Lg have to focus on availability like Samsung note 8, pixel 2, oneplus 5T, etc...
Given how quickly LG phones drastically drop in price, I'll definitely be eyeing the V30 come this time next year. My mom picked up a V20 for only $320, and that was 3 months ago.
Still people are spending 800+$ it's stupid, with only one model released in September till today availability is no where to be seen. Resale and Discounts are imminent. Front Selfie Camera said tobe poorest. Never ever buy at this time when Nokia, Samsung and iPhone X are available abundance.
Master JAM, 05 Dec 2017What about high temperature during operations?Never heard of V30 over heating
Viktorir, 04 Dec 2017I actually meant the non-pro, the high resolution display drains like crazy.Non pro has bad battery life because of LCD if it had OLED its battery life would be better
Master JAM, 05 Dec 2017What about high temperature during operations?Don't worry about that
