BigDaddy99, 10 Sep 2017Yeah but it will still be a lot better than XZ premium.Really? A lot better? Do you mind mentioning what makes it better besides the smaller bezels it has?

Alessa, 10 Sep 2017this phone is impossible to repair if it gets damaged physicaly so for those who will buy this... moreThe phone is build like a tank, that is the reason it is hard to take apart, have you thought of that for one minute.
ArchitectofInvention, 10 Sep 2017What about the 360 Camera?The 360 camera is neat, when you take a picture with it, it takes a 360 degree image, when you check out the picture in your gallery it hovers around the entire image.
pika2000, 10 Sep 2017$700 for a laggy phone that is slower than the OnePlus? No thanks.Says the guy who never used this fantastic device, laggy really, LMAO, this phone is buttery smooth and fast, 175K in AnTuTu, with a premium build like no other phone on the market, with a 5.7 inch edge to edge screen "which is tack sharp" in a small form factor.

Im in love with lg v30. Bring camera review of the essential and maybe(maybe) I will re-think my choice. It must perform better than s8 and lg u11 to make me re-think over the brilliant v30
For the updates, okay it's better at least. And for the price of about 580, it's quite debatable, considering the competition of quite similar prices (more or less). Such as the Nokia 8, maybe OP5 and maybe the G6 as well, etc. Apart some considerable critics too.
