Buxz777 , 11 Feb 2018Best phone released in 2017 and I bet it is still one of the best in late 2018...lg made a win... moreAgreed. This is my first LG phone and I just wish I'd tried them before. I got really lucky I think and pick a brand new one up in Vietnam for $250, it's legitimate to, so I was really chuffed. I think. Any idea what these are worth in the UK or the states?
Anyway the phone is amazing. Especially the sound, as a sound engineer it's a double bonus for me. I haven't ever found a device to match it. Unfairly underrated.
Best phone released in 2017 and I bet it is still one of the best in late 2018...lg made a winner here it's just a shame they don't market them like Samsung do
I sold my s8 and bought the LG v30 it has a better camera set up for stills... Better video recording.... Better military grade materials.... Better audio recording... Better battery life.... Awesome screen... The audio output is literally like 20x better than the s8
Why people buy the s8 over the LG is beyond me... Best phone I've ever owned
Well, the phone looks great with cool specs. In general, the LG phones are good. But, their after sales service is something which leaves you wanting more. look at how LG handled the issue of "Bootloop" that affected many of their phones including the Google - LG Nexus 5X. Inspite of acknowledging that it is a defect in the phone, LG is charging for the motherboard replacement cost from customers to fix this issue. The lame excuse they give is that the phone is out of warranty so the customer have to pay up for the motherboard replacement cost. This is just not expected from a company like LG.
Battery endurance improbed significantly currently the best battery life by LG
GSMARENA Can you add music playback time for this phone? I want to compare it to other android music DAP. Thanks.
Finish you review with a retailed V30 GSM Arena. This phone is already released for sale!
Talk time and video playback time are awesome. Bad web browsing time though. Please make the video playback time better with update and İ will buy it without any hesitation
Does the battery test use the default screen resolution(4K)? If that so can you test it with 1080p when you get the retail unit? I think this should be the default resolution and use the superior resolution only for VR or maybe movies.
Anonymous, 11 Oct 2017 And the point was they cut corners enough and a number of their parts cost less to the point ... moreI am sorry that I offended you. Let me tell you a factual thing. 200 dollars cheaper, according to you that is the price to pay to get lesser specs. Do people care? Some yes, most not. For them who don't care (I am one of those) this flagship (it is, cause LG don't offer any better than this) is worth the so called cutting corners, although the majority of people won't experience it at all. Telephoto lens ir wide angle? It's whatever one prefers. I used telephoto on the Iphone 7 Plus, now I am more inclined to see what the wide angle lens does. And as far I read, it's nice.I have nothing more to say.

They cut corners. It's a fact. Stop getting so hurt and defensive over it and trying to make this into something it's not. I didn't bash lg or the v30 or say anything not factual. The v30 cut too many corners and it left the note 8 superior in the majority of ways. Plain and simple. Nothing more. Nothing less. It doesn't mean v30 sucks, people shouldn't get it, that it doesn't gave advantages, and so on.
All you fanboys on these pages need to start growing up and being able to see things objectively. And not take every negative to heart and get defensive over things. Especially factual things.
And if you are going to reply to someone you should read it or get over yourself. Especially when you tell someone things they specifically said just because you were too lazy or bias to get through it.
Like where I specifically said that everyone likes what they like and get what they want. I don't care who likes what and prefers what. Yada yada etc.
jjfz, 01 Oct 2017LG time to market is very poor ever since Not only LG, remember HMD with the Nokia 6... or in the past, Sony Ericcson. I remember I waited for more than half a year to get my Xperia X1. Announced at MWC -february I think-and got it in November.
Anonymous, 11 Oct 2017Your reply just makes you look like a fanboy that was itching to reply. Nothing you said disc... moreI don't get your point. You're accusing him look like a fan boy, yet you try to convince people how much of a not flagship the V30 is and how good the Note8 is compared to the V30. I have news for you, this is the V30 opinion section so you can expect such opinions. Only if you think LG cut corners doesn't mean other share that same opinion. We can choose whatever phone we want. A budget phone can be a flagship for someone who is not willing or who cannot afford high priced phones. It doesn't necessarily means it's a lesser phone, as long as one is happy with it. The V30 is not for you, but it is for others. Reviews are positive about this phone, might be hard for you to see that. Besides many would gladly pay 200 dollars less for a phone that is barely performing worse with those so called cutting corner stuff you mentioned. It's smaller too, many people like that. 200 dollars can be a lot of money. Soa according to you LG cut corners for profit. Well, Samsung made it's phone overpriced to reduce losses on the Note7.
