Nothing you said discredited my factual points.
Just because LG did well with the camera and you might even prefer it does not mean they could not have cut corners. Nor does you liking it mean it's better. Objectively it's not.
And they did. In all three in fact. It's not a flagship grade sensor. It's got tiny pixels and is cheaper than what you would find in most mid range phones and others that cost hundreds less. Even some lower end ones. And that's just the main sensor.
Luckily they have good processing and a bright lens.
That does change the facts. And since it's weaker it heavily relies on that processing and lens rather than all complimenting each others.
Stop being blind. You think the camera is great anyway? Then use your brain. If you like the results now then accept that they cut corners and realize that means had they used a real flagship grade sensor with either larger and/or more pixels faster focus and all the good stuff.. Then they could have done even better. Maybe even actually beat the competition.
But they settled for cutting corners and just doing good.
And if you even begin to claim the front camera is not pretty terrible even for a 5mp then don't even bother replying. So not only is it a $750 phone supposed flagship of 2017 that lacked in front cam, but used a 5mp...And not just 5mp, but a crappy one at that.
low budget devices can do better.
And the wide angle one misses out on a number of possibilities in focus, pixels size, resolution, aperture, ois, and so on.
Samsung's secondary sensor has dual pixel focus, OIS, and 2x optical zoom. And is almost the same size as LG's main camera sensor.
Again. They cut corners on all three. And it didn't go to anywhere else except their pockets.
And how do you figure the Note is only eh? It's at least decent in audio. And the Exynos with Wolfson DAC is definitely a cut above. Yes LG has quad DAC and louder speaker.
They had to have a couple advantages somewhere.
Again. Expensive flagship late 2017 and still only 4GB ram. Where as just about any mid to higher has moved to at least 6GB. Some even 8GB. And some of those cheaper options had 6GB more than a year ago.
And LG was practically last to bring the S835. More corners cut that didn't go anywhere except their pocket.
You don't have to want everything it offers. But denying the corners that have been cut or not realizing that cost ratio of what is offered makes the $200 cheaper LG actually more over priced is just foolish and blind.
It's not a bad phone. But it's lacking a lot in comparison to the competition. And falls short of Note8 on many aspects.
And unless you are paying for either up front or the slightly louder speaker is your main goal it's a better deal to get the Note8.
If you have to save that like $5 a month and don't care about anything except that its' cheaper and still good enough then have it.
I don't care who prefers what or who gets what or think it's bad. Just facts are facts. LG cut corners for profit.

Not to m... moreI don't think LG cut corners in camera, in fact of what I see I prefer LG camera. Besides Note 8 audio is average, not bad not good. The V30 audio is much better. Yes it has 2 gigs less of ram. I wouldn't even mind paying much less for the V30 compared to Note 8.
Personally i don't need an s-pen, i just look for a phablet sized phone with good build gquality and good cam and audio. So why would i go for note 8 and not V30 and save money?

Not to mention the more complete software and abilities.
You can disagree all you like. It won't change facts.

ycu , 24 Sep 2017Which hi end phone isn't nowadays? Sadly enough. Not directly related to the point. Yes they are all over priced though. The problem was that despite being $200 cheaper the V30 is still more over priced compared to the Note8
I also like the 5mp front camera with wide angle view so i can fit all my intergalactic friends with me on it than having 8 to 16 mp front camera which i can only fit 2 earthlings with me. May the force be with us all.
Earthlings, I travelled so far and I am amazed with this device, this is so good to be true, where can I get this?

I don't even heard this phone everywhere or any other LG phones out there until I visit GSMarena myself. The truth is, most of folks (not all at least) think that LG mobile is still exist entirely at all and that's reality. No matter how good they are at making things doesn't mean the majority will needed it, most folks this days are just following hype or bandwagon like in a american idols.
xXtrashboatXx, 24 Sep 2017The thing that annoys me most about LG is how they add or ommit features because of region dep... moreI think with the V30 LG decided to just have all features in every region so there is no difference now.
Side by side compared with note8 this phone appeals more to me but I will wait till it gets cheaper maybe during the holiday season in december with some good deals.
Besides this phone is not only a beast as all V series of LG it's also more focused towards a certain group of people who like to have good audio and video. The note is the only one with a s oen or stylus with such dedicated software for it that it's not comparable with V30 and other phablets. Don't need s pen, so V30 suits better for me, and the majority of people.
