It looks like the phone carries the LTE bands for Verizon. Has anyone tried to use the V30S on the Verizon network?

Really disappointed in LG, THIS device is what the original V30 should have been to begin with but more importantly they didn't even fix it's shortcomings. From a V30 owner let me tell you: When you record for a long time, it in 1080p@60fps it freezes and takes a while to save and if you do not let it sit and finish, you're gonna get a corrupted file. The front camera straight sucks when compared to the S8+ and doesn't even have OIS. Speakers- They suck, when I compared it to my dad's S8+ they sounded teeny! The screen, not great, in sunlight I have to max the brightness in order to see the screen whereas on the S8+ it didn't even need to be close to max to view it. The next one might be because of the 4gb of RAM but the phone seems to lag when I open the app tray. The apps get distorted like low res for a couple seconds then it clears up and goes back to normal. LG really needs to get their crap together! They shouldn't be doing these incremental upgrades without even addressing the shortcomings.

-.- still the same front facing camera

From the start LG should have sold this phone in the different colors with RAM and storage options. People questioning why no 845 chip are seeing this phone was an after thought. Just another case of LGs piss poor planning!

LG has serious quality control issue. G4,G5,V10,V20, G6 all has image retention issue. Now V30 🤪 has some other serious display problem.
Tommy Lau (3 months ago)
i am a LG V30+ owner. seriously very disappointed with LG. Why not just come out with 6gb and 256gb from the start???

Go away LG...

Not the latest processor and battery is still less than 3500mah.. improve these areas and you have money..
Kattz (3 months ago)
This is a gorgeous phone. It's what the LG V30 should have been. The fact that is almost the same as the old version isn't a bad thing. I like that both LG and Samsung have improved the previous models instead of completely redesigning them. We will get better phones this way.

Still Waiting for the oreo update on my "normal v30"....
itisthefear (3 months ago)
Its so sad that they dont realise that the front camera is ruining such a beautiful phone... same happened with the g6... i have the g5 and i have a superior front camera from both g6 and v30
ShanghaiWall (3 months ago)
Neither Android Authority, Engadget and the Verge didn't address the main drawbacks of V30: screen issues and subpar frontal camera. Makes me think its paid "hands-on".
Clous von (3 months ago)
I'm guessing they didn't want to get overshadowed by Samsung at mwc

LG needs to thinQ about that 12th year of straight losses with their mobile division that stupid choices like this, is going to bring them!
Jeff Rebuzora (3 months ago)
It should be pronounced as think (thinkQ) since it has the new AI machine learning system. Makes sense right?...... Your welcome.
TheFlacker99 (Flak) (3 months ago)
I know they probably won't but an upgraded V20 would be good. I love my V20.
TheFlacker99 (Flak) (3 months ago)
But what about a v20 ThinQ.
J (3 months ago)
TheFlacker99 (Flak) they have one its called the v30
Feroz Muhammed (3 months ago)
If this phone is priced right then yes I was waiting for this updated LG v30 S thinq. The v30 just lacked that extra ram and storage.
Funny-Bunny (3 months ago)
But does it bootloop ? That's the golden question. However, I suppose time will tell, so basically you have to pay in order to get fucked at a later time/when you're not expecting.
Gal (3 months ago)
Nah... G6 was great, V30 is great.. not issues anymore with it.

Samsung Galaxy S9+ > LG V30S > iPhone X
J (3 months ago)
Secular Guy LG v30 is better automatically because of its video recording features and hifi DAC. This new one isn't worth the upgrade unless you never had one. Very underrated phone.

I've been an LG user since the LG G3, this time around I will be dropping LG for Samsung. LG has disappointed me with the LG G5 and G6 (which I currently own). When LG decided to drop the IR blaster on the G6 it was a let down and it also lacked the LED notification. Albeit, I could have used the "Always On" screen display to show notifications, it never worked that great and it drain the battery fast. The cameras on the LG phones have never been that great either, specially on low light conditions compare to its competitors. Lately, my G6 has been giving issues when making phone calls and receiving text messages. I have also notice that my G6 battery drains too quickly on standby, randomly freezes, and I find myself rebooting the device at least 4 times a week. Another thing that really bothers me about LG, is their lack of commitment to update their phones to the latest Android OS. Samsung on the other hand, have been doing pretty good with their phones so far, specially with the new S9. I can't wait to get it!

Isn't ThinQ pronounced "THINK"? That's how I hear other reviews pronouncing it...and would believe its how LG branded it... Let's see..

Harlock2day (3 months ago)
nice iq but is just copying the Huawei Mate 10 Pro, which is already on the market. Odd that this journalist forgot to mention that. Still it looks like a beautiful phone and LG is a top company.
Ashish Kalam (3 months ago)
basically V30 was 4/64 and V30+ was 6/128 now V30s is 6/128 and V30s+ was 6/256 and new colors
HaxorTech (3 months ago)
Ashish Kalam the V30+ still only came with 4 GB RAM
TechnologyGoat (3 months ago)
I like the new Blue color! :)

Is Thinq purely software? Than they should update the older v30s.

RUS (3 months ago)
They could have Improved the front facing camera.
Gal (3 months ago)
let me help you here, download the Google Cam Port for the V30 (by cstark27 on XDA). Trust me, you will get a whole new camera experience! Hard to imagine, but you will have a new, good, selfie camera! (and even portrait modes for both rear and front cameras).
SuperJuvexxx (3 months ago)

Thanks for upgrading the v30 for something kinda useless camera feature, this would still help drop the price of the v30 and v20. Waiting for the price drop then its time to switch from the v10

After about a year with iPhone, I really want to come home. Can someone tell me if Android/Google has an dedicated video editor kind of like iOS iMovie. No a third party app from the App Store isn’t an option for me, and yes there is more reason about both operating systems that has me sticking with iOS atm.
Mark Teuteberg (3 months ago)
Why not update everyone's camera app to support the new tech? It's just a software update... Frustrates me beyond belief xD
Mark Teuteberg (3 months ago)
Yeah and i see the software is comming to the G6 as well so I am happy now xD
Gal (3 months ago)
V30 will get the new features in software update. The new phone is an addition of 2GB RAM and 256GB storage.

Another missed opportunity. Should've upgraded the front camera. The only thing the V30 lacked.

damn Sammy should learn making design
Eusebio Escelante (3 months ago)
All of these could have been achieved via software update. When did LG started following Apple by renaming the same LG V30+ and re releasing at MWC?
Yashaswi Narayana (3 months ago)
They should have added OIS for wide angle lens
Mario Bartos (3 months ago)
Nah, it would be waste. That camera doesn't have autofocus and its general use for landscape so no real important.Maybe for video but still... Better sensor> OIS

It seems like if you aren't Google or Samsung, accessory companies ignore your phone.

Dragan Zrilić (3 months ago)
Sorry but after the LG G6 camera (which you gave an 8.9 rating or so) any LG phone in the near feature is a no-go for me. If you want a phone with a decent camera you should buy a(n) Iphone/Pixel/Galaxy/Note/Mate phone. Everything else isn't an option.
Chris Clark (3 months ago)
I have a V30 and 6GB of RAM would have been nice. 4GB is a bit laggy. They better give existing owners a software update with some of these camera improvements. But I won't hold my breath. I haven't even received an Oreo upgrade yet.

V30 was the best phone last year. Samsung shit the bed with their built in Bixby button and shitty fingerprint placement. Traded my s8+ in for a v30 and never looked back.

Tanmey Saraiya (3 months ago)
They should first give Oreo update to the og V30.
Jared Hoats (3 months ago)
LG just ensured that they get a 13th straight quarterly loss. This company needs to be gutted and they need to reevaluate their target market and price point. Edit: I own a V30 and love it, but they'll never break Samsung and Apple's grip on the US market with their bad ad campaigns and skeletons in their closet (bootloop)

my sony has this feature long time ago

LG should have added o.i.s on the wide angle camera.
