OP5 as an alternative? Try to record video o take good photos at low conditions with the OP5 and compare with the rest mentioned. You'll hate it. In any case, it is comparable in SoC performance. Take a little extra care when recommending alternative products including the use of cameras.
After all the bootloops & sh*t from LG, i'm no longer interested in their products.
Finally a decent enough battery life for an lg flagship, but on second glance, web browsing seems to be a joke. Lg continues to disappoint in the battery front.
GSM said "Curved screen glass makes it look a little too Samsung-like"
But yet they don't care about that Oppo and Vivo looking iPhone.
Anonymous, 14 Sep 2017Mate has a WAY better web browsing -result, though. It has 14:17 h over V30's 8 hours. They told you it's not a final software so please get some brain ...
Stills are more crisp than XA1(surely thx to 16mp too), more contrasty and colorful than any other phone(truly than any, even in low light). Missing big sensor size is visible mainly in low light, but somehow it still performs without noise, with good colors.
Most visible downside besides less true colors than XZP is just 4K sharpness, by that I mean its just worse than U11/Pixel, which are however best in that.
Simply, stills sharper than anything and everything's colorful. Its camera beast.

Really nice phone. If I was to upgrade my phone now, this would probably be my choice. Nice audio quality with headphones.

Also they can't bypass the Q-DAC but the option in V30 enables the filters and DSP/EQ which can result in sound quality degradation in some cases.

Big shame its not infinite contrast, pitch black is awesome, also that means it suck some battery then, would need someone to test difference though.
Congrats, that OLED is what it takes to give LG a way of increasing the battery life of their phones.
But Sony's still to be beaten in battery management - XZ1's Oreo OS, SD835, 5.2" IPS LCD HDR screen, and 2700mAh gets such incredible battery life at 82h.
XZ1 Compact will blow it away again for sure.
Average Joe, 14 Sep 2017Hi Jon, DACs does not naturally mean better sound quality, it is mostly used to drive higher i... moreYour consent of DAC is completely wrong, and headphone impedance has nothing to do with DAC. And good headphone does not required high impedance.
DAC is to convert digital ( not perfect signal with many issue ) to analog ( perfect form )
A good DAC will fix the signal with filters and complex algorithm to restore an analog signal then amplify it.
So we need a powerful DAC with advance capabilities.
And the amplifier section is responsible to drive headphone with different loads.
Great review. Battery performance is excellent. Sadly they reviewed the pre production V30. I think the final product in terms of firmware will be better ;)
Are you guys planning to review the final product??
I expected it to has a better main camera. Kind of disappointed. The sharpness of daylight photos isn't actially on pair with the G6' ones. And where are LL photo samples, GSM arena. But as always you are the best resorce for those who looking for complete handset reviews. Thank you for its cxompletness and HQ
Gosh, no AOD review, it is one of the most exciting features of the V30, I believe user can interact with the AOD straight from the screen.
