hsh, 11 Mar 2019v30 and v35 is the best design as it gets. Not too small and not too big!!!! It's just perfect... moreIt's difficult to find a rival of LG V30 or V35 with the same price in 2019, it's almost impossible I think. All variants of LGV30 and V35 are cheap phones right now, but they are the real Flagship and High End phones that destroy many competitors because V30 & V35 series has complete specs and features that are absence in other brands. Excellent Quad Dac Sound, Great Video Features, Ultrawide Camera, 3,5mm Jack, IP68 Waterproof, Gorilla Glass 5, Always ON Display, Oled Screen, NFC, Stereo FM Radio with RDS, Snapdragon 835/845, and Acceptable battery life. Although the Front Camera is only avarage, I believe that all variants of LG V30 & V35 are still the best phone money can buy in 2019 (because they are cheap now, especially if you can get the second hand with mint condtion)
PapaRafe, 21 Jun 2019How do you notice the battery life after PIE update? I hope it wouldn't get worse.just installed it lastnight. So far, it feels heavier and slower than Oreo. Kinda wish I could go back, though the standby battery drain seems improved.
Pixel is the new HTC, 21 Jun 2019How to update to PIE if I don't have AT&T simcard and live outside US? Go to XDA developers for the ROM and instructions, it's a great community with lots of support.

Anonymous, 16 Apr 2019This phone is superb, best phone I used so far coming from the Note5, LG G6, and iPhone 7. I'... moreFlash the phone with the Google FI ROM to get around the lack of update ability.
Loved this phone for the day and a half that i owned it until I found a dot visibly brighter than the rest of the screen. I dunno if that's just terrible luck or part of a bigger issue but I did not keep it to find out.
So buyer beware, LG p-oled screens can be iffy.

Brand new sealed unit, AT&T unlocked. Battery life was amazing even with the AT&T ROM with QHD resolution, 30% brightness (non-Auto) and AOD disabled. 30Hrs off the charger and I had 5hrs and 30mins of SoT, with 16% left. For that kind of usage I would only make it to ~4hrs of SoT over 9hrs on the OnePlus One running lineage OS 16 with say 10% left in the battery. The Note 4 I had revived gave pretty much the same thing, maybe 4hrs and 30mins at the lowest brightness but not with auto-brightness.
I am sure I can get even 7-8 hrs of SoT when traveling as usage will be over 14-17hrs instead of 30hrs.
I've loaded the Project Fi ROM. Now gotta see how the project Fi ROM handles the same type of usage. Over all I am mighty impressed for a phone that cost just 350USD.
This is my first glass sandwich/OLED phone, coming from the LG V20 which I love. But who understands LG? Now they have two identical lines of phones with little to distinguish them from each other and the competition. And all those revolutionary LG ideas are gone too. The LG V35 of course is a phone that shouldn't exist as is, it's a strange in-between of specs. It improves on the V30 with the electronics but has worse cameras and speaker than the V20.
It's a lovely phone though, curvy, slippery, good size (not sure what the trend to taller and narrower phones is all about in the next Vs and Gs), it's light without feeling unsubstantial, the OLED screen is a big but imperfect improvement on LCD screen, but battery life is outstanding.
With the Snapdragon 845/Adreno 630 we finally have the right combo that makes for snappy, responsive, no-lag phones. The contrast of OLED screens is lovely, but something is off on this one when it comes to colors. Also if you look at the screen while off and at a certain angle, it glass isn't smooth but uneven and textured. That combined with inferior camera apertures and sensor sizes makes for off pictures at times, especially in wide-angle. Also a huge disappointment is the speaker. But it could be an issue with this glass construction as well, who knows. The speaker on the V20 was fantastic. You could listen to music and it sounded great. But on the V35 the speaker sound is awful, plasticky, canned.
But as always with LG phones, it's the price that makes the V35 more than competitive. Why pay more than twice for similar hardware.
This phone is superb, best phone I used so far coming from the Note5, LG G6, and iPhone 7. I've never experienced a phone with better sounding headphone jack output, especially if to turn on quad DAC and DTS:X Surround + HDR video effect while watching movie. It's really hard for me to give this up now if I switch to another brand.
The screen is much better than reviewers made it out to be, it only slightly shift to blue a little if to look at it from an angle, but really it's no problem. The black is very dark.
LG software will be bloated and slow until you tweak the phone and install third party launcher and theme/icons.
Main downside is the screen is only slightly curved, so I had to use a wet applied screen protector instead of glass.
Another problem is with the AT&T version you can't update the software without a valid AT&T sim card. Cheapest way is to get a prepaid AT&T sim.
