LG = UNDERRATED!
This company needs to do a better job marketing, they produce underrated beasts! I'm currently using the V20 and I LOVE this phone. The only gripe I have is I wish it had the POLED screen. I will wait to see LG does with the V40 before I replace it. But the V30 is an awesome phone!
Awesome review! I have been looking for a new phone for a few months but decided I didn't want an iPhone or Samsung (which is what I have now) because I wanted to try something different. Just purchase the LG V30 and am so excited to start playing with it!!!
Does the V30 no longer have issues? I've had LG G4 and LG V10 and they both went out on me (both loop boot issue just after a few months) and after experiencing that, I have a fear in buying LG again, since they're not really cheap in our country and service centers didn't even want to recognize the warranty. When V20 came out, I really wanna buy again, but is afraid I'll experience the same thing. But now with V30, I really want it but am afraid to experience losing phone and files again.
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.
