Is this device even going to make it to the market???? Might be a nice grab at $499 if it does but other than that... :(
Anonymous, 13 Apr 2018Now V35 nuisance, what is LG doing with its 835 chipsets so many ch over ordered. Whining mont... moreWhat are you taking about?? Clearly your comment doesn't have a proper meaning.
No IR Blaster, Snapdragon 835,Still Same 3300 mAh Li-Po battery and still Android 7.1.2...
Seriously LG what are you doing...
LG is keep using back power button..
it is so uncomfortable.
why LG is not listening to consumer.
Now V35 nuisance, what is LG doing with its 835 chipsets so many ch over ordered. Whining month three , same models versions launched! It shows LGs frustration and Silly ness? No way to sell them @850 a piece! Maybe buy one get one free wide do!
I have not seen a single post on V30S, sharing experience, nor will be Any! All generalized talk. Nobody will buy 835 year old, at 850$ Nuts! Why not sell balance Processor's 835 to others, rather than G7!
LG ...if you're listening ....here's what I think made your 'V-series' great : Removable battery, Secondary screen, HiFi Quad-DAC, Manual Mode Camera(s), QHD Screen, LG UX+, Quick Remote. I (personally) don't care about : Wireless charging, Glass Sandwiches, Waterproofing, Boom Speakers, Selfie Camera(s) = 5 MP is fine for selfies, OLED screens = IPS LCD is great too. C'mon LG.... you're V10 and V20 are still awesome phones... even in 2018 ! !
L.G. removed I.R.blaster after v20 for no reason. L.G. g3 was a tremendous mobile they bought in the market. Almost perfect. From there they starts loosing. Coz L.G. was the only phone in the market with IR blaster & FM at the same time. Expecting them to bring it back
I always had high expectations for LG and in many ways, I still do. I believe them to be the Korean underdog when compared to Samsung. I simply do not get the impression that they are thriving in the smartphone market. A few thoughts that come to mind with this "new" release......
SD835 chip in the V30S?
-Have to believe anticipated sales figures for original V30 were low and LG had already committed to buying x amount of 835 chips with no other high end devices to put them in. This is by no means a knock on the SD835, still an excellent chipset in 2018.
Same physical phone as V30
-Essentially goes back to the same reasoning previously stated above...plenty of components/units remaining due to lackluster sales of the V30 globally.
Increase in RAM
-Addition of RAM is cheap and despite not too many devices actually needing 6GB of RAM to get through today's games /apps, I suppose this will look better on the spec sheet over the V30.
If LG can manage to resolve the P-OLED issues, the V30S will be an excellent option in 2018 despite the older SD835. I believe the key is to launch this device at a reasonable price point and have a good sell through in order to get LG relevant again. If the V30S (regardless of memory options)hits the market with a similar price point to flagship phones that are arriving with the SD845 and updates to their external appearance, LG will not fair well.
With the advent of : Non-removable batteries, No dedicated headphone port, 5G telecommunication bands, Ai implementation in all devices requiring electricity to function, High tech biometrics security... gosh, I'm confused. Bigger screens on smaller bodies, higher prices for less hardware specs, batteries relatively not changing in capacity but providing more power to high end processors, ....yah, I'm confused. Or maybe I can see the game being played in the smartphone world and consumers don't know the rules.
LG! One day the notch, the next day LCD panel still, whats next? Stop destroying yourself. You see Samsung doesn't recognizes you anymore as a competitor! Don't go downhill! The V30 was good, the only thing you did wrong was promotions and supply and a bit on specs. And BTW change the FRONT CAM!!! its hideous!! I'm thinking of changing to Samsung now; unless if you have something AMAZING in store for us. Fingers Crossed!
LG please make yourself unique again.
Since LG decided to do away with its two unique features they fell in line with the everyday blah-blah-blah boring flagships. Unfortunately LG has both lost interest in its uniqueness and chose to followed the heard to be a common touch screen phone.
- Removal Battery
- IR for TV remote
LG seems to barely hold on to the headphone jack, "thankfully". But I wonder when they will follow the crowd and also let that feature go.
Come back LG.
