Great! It always seem weird that LG touts the benefits of OLED display for it's TV and yet uses LCD for it's flagship.
Finally, I'm happy that the V30 will have an OLED screen. Hope it will also have a large 4000+ mAh battery, FM Radio, IP68 rating, MicroSD Card slot and the 3.5mm headphone jack. As for the removable battery, as much I want it to be there, I know LG will just follow the trend and use a sealed back like the G6.
Anonymous, 18 May 2017The V series has been the true flagship since the first one, the V10, appeared in late 2015. B... moreIn Europe we don't get the choice to buy the V series. Then they have the nerve to complain about low profits. Simple logic. Them that don't sell things don't make profits.
AnonD-666047, 18 May 2017What is really LG's flagship?! V?! or G?!The V series has been the true flagship since the first one, the V10, appeared in late 2015. But LG didn't step up and say "Hey, guys: This is where it is at now". So we are just now starting to figure it out on our own.
The G series is the fashion phone. And LG will never say "Hey, fashionista, you are not buying our best stuff".
AnonD-666047, 18 May 2017What is really LG's flagship?! V?! or G?!Well the g line is basilly your average flagship while the v line is more aimed at professionels (like the v20) and has some extra features and experimental ones, its a bit similiar to the note line of samsung
I don't understand this explanation. In the PC world LCDs are used in ultra fast response gaming monitors (144Hz). Meanwhile the AMOLED in my GS7 has very noticeable ghosting when displaying rapid motion, particularly on a dark background.
So they've decided to discontinue the G Flex line. They could always spawn a new line of models, say, to the tune of V Flex? Curvy G Flex with the ticker and then some...
I hope it's not true. I hope they won't use the inferior OLED. If they want to use it in the future, then LG should make at least one more and a final device with removable battery, LCD screen, flat screen and non-glass back. Then sell this V30 in Europe too. Then they can mess up the future of phones with useless fashion design (non-removable battery, glass back, etc.). But give us the final, ultimate phone with removable battery that I would use forever.
Otherwise LG G5 or V20 remains the final, the last good, the ultimate phone in the world forever.
I absolutely agree 100%, "why the phones didn't just launch with that built-in from day one". But at least let's say that better late than ever.
Lazy Lg they should keep on used oled long time ago.lg g flex one and only their flagship have a good battery life.i bet battery optimisation on oled is better than ips
It's all in fantasy land, imagination! Things might be even better!
And of course they would kill its replaceable battery as they're at it ... Because who wants it?
I mean who needs instant 100% charging, the capacity to double your phone's autonomy by carrying a tiny accessory and the capacity to replace batteries with dying cells for cheap?
We need slow charging that takes up to an hour and a half, we need bulky mobile charger with cables sticking out taking other hour and a half to charge our phones (if we are lucky). We also need to pay $100 to repair our dying battery instead of $10 to replace it on our own.
I mean it all makes sense. Let's kill the replaceable battery. Thankfully G6 made the beginning.
