The LG V30 marks two important firsts for fun and usability Ė itís the companyís first Daydream-compatible phone and itís the first device to support T-Mobileís new 600MHz band. (Note: the Galaxy Note8 was rumored to also support 600MHz, but it lacks the crucial Band 71).
The V30 is LGís first OLED-packing phone in a while Ė P-OLED specifically, which LG tells us is a kind of AMOLED. And itís HDR-enabled meaning it can better handle the advanced lighting of modern games. Anyway, itís large, high-resolution display in a fairly compact body. And thereís Snapdragon 835ís Adreno 540 GPU to push VR graphics. By the way, the Google Daydream View headset is $75 on Amazon.
As for the new LTE band, T-Mobile got the drop on its US competition and the new 600MHz network is already in one location Ė Cheyenne, Wyoming Ė launched a week ago. The lower frequency will allow cell towers to cover more territory and reception in-doors is much better.
