Techradar Recommended 2017

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.

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

 

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 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

 

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 v Samsung Galaxy Note 8

 

A comparison of two of the latest high-end Android phablets for which you'll need large (and deep) pockets. We see how the LG V30 and Samsung Note 8 compare.

The Samsung Note range pretty much invented the phablet market, and it still makes the best use of the form factor. The S-Pen remains a standout feature which helps differentiate Notes from their rivals, and the addition of a DeX dock can literally...

LG V30 review: LG’s latest flagship needs more polish

 

LG devices often get overshadowed by its bigger rivals, but its new V30 insists you pay attention to it. It's an elegant, well-built device with powerful performance and some of the best audio quality we've ever heard out of a smartphone. It's...

Excellent, water-resistant design ; Strong performance ; Flexible, powerful video features ; It sounds fantastic!

Screen appears gritty at low brightness ; Low-light camera performance could be better ; Middling battery life

LG V30 review: Stunning hardware optimized for media creators and audio lovers

 

I've been using a LG V30 for a couple months, check out my first impressions , and last week a T-Mobile retail version arrived while the V30 finally hit store shelves. If you use your phone for video creation and you still enjoy music through a...

Elegant design and superb feel in hand ; Fun and creative video tools ; High quality dual rear cameras ; 3.5 mm headset jack with Quad DAC ; Long battery life ; Future proof on T-Mobile with 600 MHz support

Auto-brightness is wonky ; Price is about $100 too high ; Doesn't launch with Android 8.0 Oreo

LG V30 review

 

A strong competitor for 2017's best Android phone.

OLED screen ; Highly creative video mode ; Wide-angle camera ; Superb audio ; Great battery life

Lacking video and photo editing features ; Screen edges very sensitive ; No unlocked version yet

The LG V30 is the best phone LG has made yet, and it can compete with the best from other major manufacturers in 2017. The V30 is an excellent choice if you’re excited about shooting great video, and want a camera that doesn’t just repeat the same old...
