Everything you need to know before buying LG V30
LG V30 is a way better phone LG has ever produced and it is so very 2017. It’s kind of funny, its basically the opposite of the essential phones like in every imaginable way. It’s kind of impressive. One is sort of a minimal bare-bones small stock phone from a new company while the other is a big feature packed richly enhanced Android flagship from a well-established company who has done this before. So these are the Top 5 features you should know about before buying this phone.
No. 5 goes to check boxes. All the attention to details in this phone and I think a lot of us can come from a fact that LG has had a lot to learn from the v20 and the G6 and the G5 but some it is just knowing what people want and this phone pretty much checks all of the boxes imaginable.
- It has expandable storage via Micro SD for those who like it.
- It has wireless charging.
- It has fast charging.
- It has USB type-C.
- It has IP certified waterproofing.
- It has a headphone jack that backs it up a 32-bit quad act that audio enthusiast will really like.
- The removable battery might be gone but 3300 mA battery on board is pretty promising if not standard for this size.
- The fingerprint reader they put it right in the middle of the rear case.
I’m not the biggest Android skin fan so it takes a lot for me to say this about this phone but I really don’t mind this skin and I think the big part of that for me is how many features LG’s added which is exactly the opposite of any other essential phones out there in the market. It doesn’t feel cartoonish or weird. The performance is not smooth but fluid. This one doesn’t have the second screen feature like v10 or v20 but they do have this optional floating bar so you can bring it in from the edge and keep some apps shortcuts there. You can also rearrange the buttons at the bottom of the screen the way you see fit.
The design honestly is pretty dope. This is one of those phones that now looks very 2017. It’s huge display up front, the 82% screen to body ratio that kind of curves over to the edges, it makes it look like a glass-sandwich design. It’s not something we haven’t seen before, in fact, if you didn’t know any better, it looks a lot more like Galaxy Note 8 because of sides kind of round of smoothly. You’ve got the antenna band matching pretty well. A really thin and a lightweight design in the hand. IP certified water resistant again. It makes the design looks really complete. The camera bump at the back is the tiniest of bumps so no big deal, it doesn’t rock the phone or anything when it’s down. My only complaint with the phone is I’d wish they put a headphone jack at the bottom.
This new screen is incredibly good. It’ 6 inches 2880 x 1440p OLED display and it gets crazy bright outdoors, much more visible than most of the phones. Since it’s 2880 x 1440 aspect ratio, so If you’re watching a video or playing certain games, you’ll get these black bars on either side of the display. But again, it’s not that big of a deal since its OLED and black parts of the screen go completely blank. The viewing angles are pretty good, the curved angles are pretty accurate. This is all-around the great display.
This phone supports dual cameras like all its older devices. On the back, its 16-megapixel F-1.6 main camera with OIS and secondary super wide angle 13-megapixel F 1.9 camera. They have done these dual cameras before with the wide-angle secondary, this time pretty much the same thing with everything around them pretty much improved. So, the main camera looks better, takes top-notch photos, and of course, F 1.6 aperture means it will get pretty close to the subject and the background will fade away to a decent Boca which is cool. The super wide-angle camera has less distortion than before so less fish-eyed go pro look and more of a wide angle rectilinear perspective which is awesome.
