I just bought the 254 GB / 6 GB version second hand with mint condition for USD 230. It has:
+ Hi Fi Quad DAC Sound
+ 32-bit/192kHz audio

This phone has almost everything on it and still rocks even in 2019. I sold my Galaxy Note 9 today.

Tanjung perak, 30 Jun 2018Battery life review???? Come on gsmarena......same goes to v35 please make the reviewstill no tests unfortunately :(
Macbeth, 20 Jul 2018Will it be getting Android P update?I am no longer counting on getting Pie. LG just got around to patching the phone to March 1, 2018; that's a full 6 months behind the current Android patch level for Oreo. Maybe we'll get 9.0 when 10 finally comes to other phones. 8.0.2 works well enough on this phone; I'm more concerned about security. There are lots of great features on the V30S for the price, but LG service/support is disappointing.
Anonymous, 08 May 2018Does anyone know which US carrier supports this phone and which models each does support and w... moreIf you can afford to pay all at once, consider purchasing off contract through B&H or another online reseller. The unlocked version will work with the big 4 and most smaller carriers. I got mine for $279 cheaper than what my carrier sell it for. Add in optional drop/spill insurance for half what I'd have paid and it's a real bargain. B&H also has the exclusive matte Moroccan Blue finish; granted color is not a reason to purchase a phone, but it is nice.
I recently got the V30S to replace an aging ZTE Axon 7 as it is getting a little temperamental and has accumulated too many security issues. Speaking of issues, FedEx royally screwed up the express delivery and was completely apathetic about it. ...but I digress. The LG phone is only slightly wider and taller than the Axon but has a much bigger screen and is notably lighter. The camera is far superior as well.
-Longer battery life. The battery is at 50-75% when I go to bed compared to 30-60% with the Axon 7
-Brighter, easy to read the screen with balanced color
-Excellent cameras, though LG's native camera app isn't that great IMO
-Fantastic sound! FLAWLESS with wired headphones
-T-Mobile bands 66 AND 71
-6GB RAM makes it very responsive
-128GB internal storage plus SD card is very welcome (I own a TONS of music and take lots of pictures)
-Cellular, WiFi, and Bluetooth radios work great
-2 years warranty total (see CONS)
-Screen edges are comfortably curved but there is no phantom touch like on Samsung S8 and S9
-The screen can natively be custom color corrected (I'm a photographer, I care!)
-The fingerprint sensor is responsive and well placed
-Charges fast either wired or wirelessly
-Apps are well behaved (Except Engadget, but it crashes on all my Androids)
-I love the Moroccan Blue finish!
-Fewer security risks than Chinese made phones like ZTE or Huawei
-After a week emailing back and forth, LG has still has not updated the database that will allow me to register my phone with them! They did admit it was a clerical error on their part, but don't seem to be in a hurry to correct it.
-Glass backs make me nervous even with a case
-No power button on the side (fingerprint sensor or Knock Knock)
-No Stereo speakers
-LG's skin is mediocre and Nova Launcher doesn't work properly

Does anyone know which US carrier supports this phone and which models each does support and where to buy one (again, in the US preferably) ? ? ?
I've had 2 LG's and I loved both of them and am shopping for a new one now. They weren't perfect but I don't think I've ever had a phone for as long as 2 years without having some sort of issue. Do they even exist? I'm thinking probably not many - so I'm sticking with what I know for now.
Thanks for this gathering of phone data. It's amazing and sooo helpful!
ex LG, 05 May 2018Bootlooping + no customer support = LG never againYou do realize that's the past right? No phone's from LG have Boot looping issues anymore.
