LG V30

 

LG V30 review, features, price and specs: With dual-camera, quad-DAC, a wide aperture and a lovely design, can LG finally make a great phone?

Loads of features ; Stunning audio ; The nicest looking LG phone yet

Screen isn't great ; Stuck on Android 7 ; LG's software is still ugly

For the first time in the series, the 3300mAh cell inside the LG V30 isn’t user-replaceable. This will disappoint some – but, realistically, it would be impossible to create such a good-looking device that still let you rip off the back.

LG V30 review

 

We have some issues with its screen, but this is a great-sounding smartphone.

Lovely sound ; Adaptable dual-lens camera ; Premium design ; Skinny screen bezel

HDR video quality not up to snuff ; Camera doesn’t rival the competition

On-the-go listening from a smartphone doesn’t get much better than this, but the V30 doesn’t have the image quality to back up its sound

Hands on LG V30 review: the most desirable LG phone ever?

 

The 6-inch behemoth from LG hoping to win your heart

Lightweight ; LG's best design, ever ; Audio

UI still isn't A1

LG V30 review

 

Scraps the dual-screen gimmicks for a Hi-Fi focus

Phenomenal sound quality ; Gorgeous design ; Versatile dual-lens camera

One of the weakest OLED screens around ; Camera quality still not up there with the best

The best-sounding smartphone around, but display inconsistencies really let the side down

LG V30 review

 

LG's new flagship is a tempting, high-powered package

Streamlined design ; Bursting with features ; Interesting camera improvements ; Gorgeous OLED display

Doesn’t launch with Android Oreo ; Quite expensive ; Selfies and low-light photography aren’t industry-leading

The LG V30 is a confident step forward, not just for LG’s experimental smartphone branch, but for its flagship devices in general. Simply put, this is LG’s best in recent memory and as a result, it’s also one of 2017’s best smartphones.

LG V30 hands-on: Now replaced by the LG V30S ThinQ

 

LG is back with the V30, but is it doomed to make the same mistakes as this year's LG G6?

Regardless, the V30 seems to be a top-rate flagship smartphone. Its 18:9 display continues to impress, it’s packed with Qualcomm’s latest processor, and its camera is above and beyond. However, with a steep price tag that makes it more expensive than...

LG V30 review

 

I just want a phone that does everything. Is that too much to ask?

The LG V30 almost has it all: a great camera, speedy processor, huge OLED screen, excellent battery life, waterproofing, wireless charging, microSD storage and the best headphone jack on a phone.

Ergonomic quirks can make the V30 awkward to hold. You may miss some shots due to slow camera autofocus. Carrier-specific versions come with annoying bloatware and logos.

The LG V30 is a rock-solid alternative to Samsung’s Galaxy S8 Plus and the Google Pixel 2 XL. If it fits your hands and your photographic needs, you won't be disappointed.

LG V30

 

LG has reinvented its V-series phone and the V30 effectively an upgraded G6. With no G7 coming any time soon, the LG V30 remains a solid choice for a new smartphone - especially with new AI enhancements coming soon.

LG V30 has some cool camera stuff for the YouTube generation

 

Packed with cool camera tools, the V30 is gunning for Samsung.
