Reviews for the LG V30

LG V30 Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
First Impression. With the LG V30, the Koreans now show a real high-end smartphone, which offers strong video features and an improved dual camera. LG has taken the complaints about the G6 for the German market to heart and also offers the device with wireless charging and quad-DAC audio here as well.
LG V30 review: LG’s latest flagship needs more polish
Source: Engadget English
When I first took the V30 for a spin, I was surprised by my own optimism. At last, LG had made a phone that seemed to tick all the right boxes. After more prolonged testing, I'm not quite as enamored -- thanks mostly to its questionable screen. Still, I'm impressed with what LG has managed to accomplish. The V30's design and build quality are first rate, performance is up to snuff for a flagship, and I'm in love with the way this thing sounds. Hopefully, LG irons out these sketchy screen issues, because otherwise the V30 is a worthy phone in danger of being overshadowed.

LG V30 Review: Setting The Record Straight For A Great Smartphone
Source: Hot Hardware English
We'll cut to the chase now because you're probably getting the gist at this point. LG's V30 is an easy HotHardware Editor's choice and our pick as one of our favorite Android phones of 2017. It's pricey at about $800 off contract, but not out of line competitively these days versus so many other premium smartphones. The bottom line is, we'd say that if you pick up an LG V30, you're not going to want to put it down.

Source: Zdnet.com English
The LG V30 appears to be well liked by those who have reviewed the pre-production and retail units over the last couple of months, but the Android smartphone market is crowded at the high end. LG does distinguish itself with the quad-DAC and advanced video creation and editing features so creators are such to love it.

LG V30 – More Powerful, More Sophisticated, Less Screens [Review]
Source: G Style Magazine English
2017 has been a pretty exciting year when it comes to new phones. Samsung, HTC, Apple, and others have either come out or announced some amazing looking flagships and LG has done the same with the LG V30. While it might not be quite as flashy as something like the Galaxy Note 8 or as squeezable as the HTC U11, the LG V30 is a solid device that takes the V-series into proper flagship territory.

The LG V30 is the best Android phone I have ever used. Full stop. This review comes before I’ve had time with the new Pixel 2, but I’m confident the V30 is every bit as good. There are very few things that I don’t love about this device. The display definitely has some quirks, but they’re not dealbreakers to me. I have used this phone every day for over a month and I still love it.

70% LG V30 Review: Groundbreaking Phone With A Deal-Breaking Flaw
Source: The Verge English
The V30 arrives half a year after the G6 and, at first blush, appears to rectify everything that ailed LG’s devices of the past. But LG rushed to put an imperfect OLED screen in its flagship phone, preferring to have the highlight spec over the superior user experience, and I can’t condone either the choice or the eventual product. This is a phone that has given me goosebumps with the astonishing quality of its headphone audio, and if I was reviewing it on the strength of music playback alone, I would say it’s one of the best media players on the market. But this is supposed to be a smartphone. And as a smartphone, the LG V30 fails to validate its high price and flagship status.

Faithful Android users won't like the liberties LG has taken with Google's dependable OS. And of course, there's the short battery life, which remains an issue on our test unit. But ultimately, the V30 does enough to differentiate itself in the crowded arena of flagship smartphones, and that makes it worth your attention.

LG V30 Review – The Ultimate Creativity Tool
Source: Android Headlines English
The laundry list of positives on the V30 are absolutely staggering to say the least, and the V30 offers more bang for your buck in more areas than most smartphones can claim. It’s not the cheapest phone available, but it’s also not the most expensive flagship out there either, all while not sacrificing any of the important parts that we expect from a 2017 flagship phone. Near zero bezels, killer performance, a screen that’s more capable than others, incredible high quality audio output and a camera that’s worthy of the title “The Content Creator’s Phone” are what make up the V30, and there’s so much more than that too. It’s not just one of the greatest smartphones ever made, it’s also the ultimate creativity tool.

LG’s new handset is equipped with Google Assistant, but with some unique capabilities specific to the V30. You can "Okay, Google" a range of V30-only selfie and video options, plus commands for getting the phone talking to LG’s connected home tech. The V30’s advanced signal processing will hear commands even if the phone’s blasting music.

On first impressions the LG V30 acquits itself well. Some questioned LG's early jump with the LG G6, choosing to launch at MWC 2017 in February with older hardware, but that only makes the LG V30 feel like the flagship LG phone that we really wanted. It surpasses the G6 in a number of ways, making this a big flagship with stacks of appeal.

LG V30 initial review: The no-BS flagship
Source: Android Central English
The LG V30 may seem like a conservative flagship, but it gets an awful lot right. There's undeniably a whiff of Samsung about the phone's design — nevertheless, the V30 continues the no-nonsense trend of the G6, with better build quality than ever. The display, despite some low-light issues, is a step beyond any previous LG phone in terms of quality and daylight legibility. The size is near perfect for me, providing an expansive display in a more ergonomic handset than Samsung can currently offer. And the camera builds on everything I loved about the G6, with better low-light performance, superior processing and new video tricks that I might not use all that often, but which are nice to have all the same.

The LG V30 could have easily been a G6s or something - it's that close to an incremental upgrade to the G6 and that far away from the original V-series concept. But hey, it's LG regrouping at its best and the V30 has turned out so remarkably well. It's got the most important boxes checked (one of them double-checked in a unique way) and we can see people running to the stores. Maybe come Christmas though, if the launch price sounds steep.

The LG V30 is the perfect smartphone for vlogging
Source: Engadget English
When LG took the wraps off of the LG V30 at IFA last week, it spent nearly 20 minutes of its 50-minute presentation talking about the phone's dual-camera system. Juno Cho, president of mobile communications, rattled off statistics like "almost 80 percent of smartphone users use their smartphone at least once a week to shoot videos." He also said that "we are literally on the verge of transitioning from storytelling to story-showing," which is almost as crazy as Samsung's new catchphrase: "Your New Normal." I digress.

If LG does bring in the V30 into Malaysia within this year – at the very least – and price it right, I reckon it will give other flagship smartphones in our market a good run for their money. Hopefully, the V30 will officially be available here in the near future. After all, even the LG G6 and LG V20 made it here, though they weren’t exactly launched in a timely manner.

Our first impressions of the LG V30 are extremely positive. It's like LG has taken the G6 and upgraded it in key areas and even refined the already sleek design. The price is tipped to be reasonable too so we can't really find fault. Perhaps we will once we get a final sample.

The LG V30 has a lot of great things going for it, and it’s going to be available on all of the carriers in the US, so everyone will be able to pick one up. LG has essentially taken all of the good from the G6 and made it even better with the V30. It’s pretty tough to find something to dislike about the LG V30 here, but there will likely be some other things that we’ll find when we do start the review.

LG V30
Source: PC Mag English
The LG V30 sets itself apart two ways: with its ultra-wide, fish-eye lens, and with (likely) support for T-Mobile's new wide-area network. Otherwise, it's pretty similar to a Galaxy S8+ with a better-placed fingerprint sensor, at least at first glance. The phone will be available this fall on all the major US carriers, and we're also expecting an unlocked version will come out at some point, although details on dates and pricing aren't yet available. I'm looking forward to putting the phone through its paces for a full review—maybe with a road trip to one of those new T-Mobile cities—so check back to see what I find.

LG V30 first impressions: Gorgeous dual camera phone built for creators

Over the last couple of years, the LG G series has been focused on the general consumer, much like the Samsung Galaxy S models. The LG V series always offered a bit more than the G series, similar to Samsung's Note line, with an emphasis on high-end video creation, high-fidelity audio, and dual camera experiences. We have seen the G series start to incorporate some of these features, but the V series still stands out as the high end model.

R.I.P LG’s G6. Seriously, what does anyone need it for at this point? The V30 is a more stylish device that improves on every aspect of the G6 and V20, and in doing so it has become a more mainstream hybrid of the two. Gone is the secondary display of the V20, replaced with a functional software version, and improved is the wide-angle camera, which now captures very little distortion. Throw in a Snapdragon 835 with 4 gigs of RAM, LG’s potent and smooth UI, a gorgeous infinity display, and sprinkle some extra camera and video goodies on top, and you have the makings for a flagship device, which stands on its own.

Source: AnandTech English
The LG V30 comes with a single USB Type-C port (no word if it is USB 2.0 or USB 3.0), and the power button is now part of the rear fingerprint sensor. Moving the power button from the side confused me for a strong minute, as the only other buttons on the device were the volume buttons on the left. The fingerprint sensor being on the rear is more suitable than one off to the side, and personally I'm not used to fingerprint buttons on the front. But in anecdotal testing the sensor recognition is a shade slower than my Mate 9, but not noticeably so unless you are concentrating hard.

In comparison with Samsung’s redemption Note 8, which seemed to play it relatively safe this year, the V30’s distinguishing elements offer a more enticing overall package. It even looks and feels sleeker.

Qualcomm Adreno 540: Integrated graphics card in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC. Slighly optimized architecture compared to the Adreno 530 but with higher clock speed due to the new 10 nm process. In the beginning of 2017 one of the fastest graphics cards for Android based smartphones.
