They just need to work on their camera software. The hardware is there but the software is slow in auto and I miss a lot of shots. The battery life is great, it blows the note 8 and s8 away in that regard. The phone does run smoother than Samsung's for sure.
LG V30 plus just launched here in India(128GB version) coming with a free wireless charger and one time free screen replacement for launch offer
Not to mention the best thing : price
LG V30+ is 700$
Galaxy s8 is 840$
Galaxy s8+ is 920$
Note 8 is 1040$
iPhone x is 1380$
It's ridiculous how criminally underrated V30 is. Half price than that of iPhone x.
I was thinking of going for the s8 but I thing I'll go for the V30+, too irresistible at that price.
It does not need more than 4gigs of RAM. Does a fantastic job with all that it has!! This phone is another huge win by LG. Great hardware that puts others to shame. The minuses i dont like are that you cant swap batteries, no more IR blaster!!!!(hangs on to useless NFC), and no more tiny extra screen which some found "gimmicky". Loved that screen. I wished they would have added even more funtionality to it. That floating bar thing defeats the whole purpose. Sound playback and recording are fantastic. Video and picture taking better than most devices in my oppinion. POLED screen is a meh for me. I could care less how vivid a screen is, and more about its lifespan.
Bo Io eye Using the phone with one game parked in the background and a couple of social networks on the go, the OnePlus 3’s RAM usage hovers at around 3-3.3GB. It’s a healthy amount, and more than the vast majority of phones have. But it’s not 6GB.
Loading up a bunch more apps and games, I got the OnePlus 3 to use 4.3GB RAM.
However, the OnePlus 3 seems very keen to start ditching apps as soon as it gets over the 4GB mark. This may be down to the sheer number of apps I had open rather than the amount of RAM used, but it does seem the last 2GB of RAM ends up as ‘emergency spare’ memory most of the time.
It also helps to explain why a phone like the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has 4GB RAM. Samsung thinks that amount is fine, and it actually makes a lot of the LPDDR4 you’ll see in top-end phones (including the OnePlus 3).
It’s important to remember that RAM isn’t like regular storage. As long as memory management is effective, we really want as much RAM as possible to be used. Otherwise it’s just sitting there, an idle worker.
Big users of a whole handful of social networks are likely too appreciate as much RAM as possible, though. Facebook, Snapchat and co are serious memory hogs, as I’ve already mentioned.
Got this from a report and helps explain why new gaming phones like the Razer phone are coming with more Ram
This phone have one of the best camera on market and you are not impressed? You don't talk about processor and overall performance but spend half of video talking about useless information. Idiotic review, but nice thing that you have sponsors in video, debil.
The Asian market models are a bit weird, though. While most of the paper specs (Snapdragon 835, range of shell colours, camera spec, etc.) are there, there is significantly less RAM, the Quad-DAC sounds awful and the V30+ (where available) does not even ship with headphones. The launchers also look different. Log-mode shooting also does not allow any zooming or stabilisation whatsoever in 4K. The overall user experience just feels largely nerfed and a major letdown after reading/watching all the positive reviews coming from the US and Europe, to be honest.
Switched to iPhone years ago for company email. Could not resist trying the V30 for audio and gigabit speed. Wow! This phone is wicked! My iPhone X still has no headphone jack and no gigabit speed :( So V30 will still have a place in my arsenal.
I'm not going to consider this for my next phone because of boot loop issues, boot loop issues happen to almost every LG phone, and my friends who have LG phones have had at least one boot loop and had to get it repaired for a high price. Not dealing with this BS until LG finally fixes it.
Walked into the TMobile store last week to buy an S8+ (I still love that phone). However, I walked out with a V30 and I'm very happy with it. The Quad DAC wired headphones weren't even on my radar when I bought it, but I've fallen in love with the audio quality. Beautiful looking, beautiful sounding, powerhouse of a phone. What's not to like.
Im going to buy this phone... it brings you the best combination of features you can get on a smartphone rigtht now... giantic display, enhanced audio quality, great cameras, nice design and top performance.... only the price is with 900€ a bit high so im going to wait till it drops down to 700 or so
Selfie camera shouldn't be a deal breaker, I think getting rid of the phone jack is more of a deal breaker to me but I'm not obsessed with selfies so I guess this is my own opinion. Ive had a zte axon for a while which has served me well, the camera sucks balls, but the audio and video are all solid. Might need to upgrade though and just use my axon as an ipod.
Who cares about LG phones now? LG should learn from Samsung on how to take care their customers on the bootloop problem of LG G4 and V10. They have been silent and taking no responsibility on their own bugs with these phones. Believe me, even though V30 is a good phone, people will have second thought on buying another LG phone. I am one of them!
Just counted at least 5 .Switching from Iphone to this LG V30 . Count me in as well. Iphone 6 to this. Main reason is size of the phone, along with other reason of course. I think you will see the switch from many IPhone users to this model.
