Thank you for the detailed review I found it incredibly helpful. A quick question, I have always been Apple and want to move to Android. Do you think this is the best starting point for me, or should I go the whole way and just start on Google Pixel 2 or iPhone X. Would rather play it safe to start out. Thank you, Rhys.
P.S. In awe of the level of detail and education that you provide!
Lots of complaints about the front camera. I’m trying to upgrade from my Iphone 6 which has a 1.2 MP front cam but I know MP don’t always mean it’s a good camera. Should I be concerned about v30s front cam coming from Iphone 6?
Ive had both the V10 and V20 since leaving the Galaxy series. I was anxious to upgrade to the V30 for the new camera and wireless charging, which I miss from my old Galaxy, but losing the 2nd screen is a deal breaker for me. Since moving to the LG V series I have learned to love that feature above all else. Between Ok Google and my LG 2nd Screen I barely actually unlock my phone unless I'm obsessively photographing my dogs or watching YouTube while browsing Pinterest. Another favorite feature of mine is the multitasking double windows, of course.
Had my rental car stolen at gunpoint and my LG V20 was I. The car. Luckily I had insurance because they're sending me a V30 now ! Karma is a bitch, I got a better phone and the idiot that held a gun to my head got caught.
I own a v30...the rear cameras are hit or miss in my opinion. It's not consistent. Taking pictures of objects is fine but it's hit or miss with people. The video quality is great though.
The front camera is only decent with lots and lots of light.
So no second screen, no removable battery. Why would they ditch these killer features in order to be a Samsung clone with a worse camerea. Absolutely no reason to buy this phone over the v20, which I have and have absolutely love.
I really hate it when Marques only makes these mini reviews to phones like this, who are just amazing compare to what the iPhone X and the Note8 have to offer. He did just the same with the LG G6 and the OnePlus 5T (I get why the OP 5T is treated similarly due to the similarities to the OP 5).
I have one now and ive realized why Samsung put the fingerprint scanner higher. I often hold my phone with my left hand and my index finger is on the side where an iPhone power/sleep button would be. Holding it like that gives the location of the scanner merit.
I need ur help bro, I’m choosing out of the s8 plus and v30. I watch a lot YouTube and Netflix so I need amazing display/screen quality. Which do u recommend. In the UK we only have silver and dark blue for the v30. I wanted black haha. The v30 just came out in the uk and is only available at one carrier 😂
top 5 features fuck heads will over look.......sorry had to say it, most consumer nations that buy up these products esp LG considering their "service stipulations".....are mostly countries inundated with ignorance and xenophobia being the driving force for the majority or purchases for the typical consumer. Most consumers lack the basic logic of rudimentary need....1.Why do i have it, need, it buy it. 2.Are these needs being achieved.....3.Are there other "options" lmfao...........no to all 3 is the avg consumer and logic for these people.....bc unilateral logic via xenophobia lmfao. SOO sad too Huge Fan of the LG v phones and what they present in the modern market with their capabilities expandability they truly are more of a tool that each user defines the value of. Not many phones even present this type of notion......other than the shite notion "its a life style" being what they get when they buy into what they think theyre getting and the spiral of lies they tell themselves among other parts of their life its all part by part and contingent. With the fabric of reality and our capitalist system favoring style over substance and art dept/ad dept being heavily vested into vs actual product and market research and putting out a solid product that is unmatched lmfao actual logic and ethics that should be considered in which product/company to back as a consumer lmfao o wait i forgot "basic human law" free will and etc bc other "basic human law" and logic of that sort is also widely considered by these people....lmfao
As much as I want this new v30, my v20 is still the KING with the quick independent menu on the top and removable battery. I've dropped it on concrete many times expecting the worst, and my simple Ballistic case has worked like a charm... I've never had a better more effective rubber case. (Watch my phone cracks now) Basically, if you don't have a removable battery then you're basically giving a much shorter shelf life to your investment. Read about how lithium ion batteries work...they all start to fail over time.
