I got the G6 & it's fine for what I need, plus the price is reasonable. There's a few differences between the 2 phones but not by much it seems. December 10, 2017 Reply weltvonalex Hey did they fix the Camera Software? I had a G6 and i have send it back, the Camera App was to terrible, everything looked blurry or like it was painted with oil. With Gcam it was OK but not amazing, far from amazing. December 11, 2017 Reply Acey Lacson That camera looks like Wall-E December 12, 2017 Reply disadadi I'd like to see a phone without selfie camera. More space for display and no need for such camera anyways. December 12, 2017 Reply Man man you need to have your own tv show December 12, 2017 Reply Young Alwyn . . .

December 15, 2017 Reply buntyji11 Phone of the year December 20, 2017 Reply Karthy Zinger Nice review man I really enjoyed it December 20, 2017 Reply Aditya Singh Bhadoriya Hi, buddy. . My priorities are vIDEO, Vlogging, Blogging, Still photography, Reading and writing on my device, Watching movies and videos, social media. is there any serious issue concerning the display quality and screen of LGV30. I was reading somewhere that colour accuracy is inconsistent on V30. whites do not look white enough, greys do not look grey enough, So on and so forth. Plz, say something about it. and is there any dedicated reading mode on LGv30? I do a lot of reading on the mobile device. does LGV30 offer comfort and care for the eye while reading? December 21, 2017 Reply aamil Khan Good for gaming ? December 21, 2017 Reply CoilHeadFred Michael. I am having a baby in May. And I want to take a lot of video. What do you think takes better video, v30 or iPhone 8 Plus? (Or if there is another device instead). December 21, 2017 Reply Tikitackfouls The USB charger that comes with this phone is abysmal!

January 2, 2018 Reply Wyatt's lawn service I really want the V30 as my next daily driver! However, for the price LG should have really added a better front facing camera. I'll just wait until it's refurbished on eBay for about $300 in a few months 😂👍 January 6, 2018 Reply Jiheem Vohor I don't get it and it has all the resolution and, it has The Punchy amulet colors just as the Note 8 does so how is the Note 8 better. Well how does it have a better screen January 12, 2018 Reply anishglx NoHype OF 5m subs just TO THE POINT Reviews..stay mobile my friends!!! The anytime hands down classic channel. January 15, 2018 Reply Vera Platt I am so much happier with this camera than my previous Xperia Z, HTC Desire Eye, HTC 10 or Xperia Z5 Premium. The internal software is right on the button. The hardware could've been better but as I said, I am still happy.I also don't mind the LG skin either. It's less contrived than the Samsung but more unique than stock without pushing to far.The screen even at 1080p is actually better than my Xperia Z5 Premium at 4K… Contrast, clarity and brightness.

What did you do can you please tell? I also want my phone to look like yours. February 5, 2018 Reply Michael RS WONKY SOFTWARE? I've heard rumors that the overall software is wonky and many v30s are being returned and exchanged for a Samsung 8 or even a G6. Do you have any information on this or is that just something that's "out there"?

March 11, 2018 Reply Raian Levy Ok, so after a week of ownership, I'm having to return my V30, noticed the dreadful faint line in the screen. Want to get a V30 replacement but they don't have one on the whole of Manhattan. Might have to get a Pixel 2XL. I love my phone 🙁 Update: just finished setting up the Pixel. It's a great phone, I'm gonna miss the v30 though. March 13, 2018 Reply Techbird 64 RIP LG V30 2017-2017/18Water killed it. March 14, 2018 Reply Seamus McKenzie. I didn't buy it for the camera .. Me… OLED screen, storage and my music .. I bought the v30+ and my wife the G6+ … Great phones .. March 18, 2018 Reply G Cart Still lovin my G6. March 25, 2018 Reply Arnamo LG made the mistake not to bring the V30 in its entirety to the global market. In Europe you'll pay the full price but you won't get the DAC or wireless charging for example… Which is a nogo for me! March 26, 2018 Reply Ian Kincaid Great video! March 31, 2018 Reply PureAwkwardness V10 was the best phone March 31, 2018 Reply Shawn Cypret I'm waiting for when they make it to where you could take advantage of the full 16 megapixel at 16 by 9 or 18 by 9 instead of 4.3 April 1, 2018 Reply Brad Garrison Love this phone!

What a great review!!!I am unsure if your giveaway is still ongoing but I hope I win!!! – Kris (PH) April 24, 2018 Reply TheGreekGeeks I love this phone but it is too expensive for me so i guess i'm going for the G6. Except the cine-zoom and other stuff like this, i wonder: Is the quality of the footage the same? April 28, 2018 Reply Gsauce 29 One of my dream phones May 3, 2018 Reply Francisco Guevarra Was thinking of getting a brand new LG G6 for 349€ but luckily I found a barely used V30 for only 400€ 🙂 Who still takes selfie 2018 anyway? This phone is a beast! May 5, 2018 Reply damien sullivan My biggest questions is how do you transfer your wide angle video to your computer? I just kept getting an "in use" error.

June 17, 2018 Reply OSTeez Don't forget that this phone is proposing Micro SD support and a headphone jack, it's pretty rare on phones nowadays… July 1, 2018 Reply Teck Fatt Yap Mr Mobile is one of the very few phone reviewer that still talks about call quality. I respect that. July 4, 2018 Reply vishal bharadwaj Glad i made a right choice by buying lg v30 by checking your and android central review . It is so amazing and particularly if you neglect the selfie cam performance , it is one of the best out there in the market. P.s : True beauty of this camera is, it helps us learn how to take perfect shots with it's graphy assistant and editing videos or photos on the fly is so good with its inbuilt video and photo editors . Thanks for the review July 18, 2018 Reply Sri Vikas Wouldnt a google camera mod be enough to cover up the front camera's flaws??? July 27, 2018 Reply LIQUID SNAKE so HDR is disappointing? July 30, 2018 Reply LIQUID SNAKE what about now? The HDR? July 30, 2018 Reply Jae Veal Finally ordered mine today, hope it comes soon! August 1, 2018 Reply Garvežiukas Tomas It's still a great phone in mid 2018! Got it few weeks ago and couldn't be happier. The only drawback I've found on this phone is a front camera which is not terrible but a noticable step back from competitors. Of course, you can use your back camera for selfies, since you kinda see yourself on the back glass but that's compromising. Other than that, it's brilliant, definitely recommended for everyone that like taking photos and listening music a lot on their phone. August 18, 2018 Reply GenAndrei I have the V10 for almost 2 years now and I'd expect atleast 3 years of good work from a flag man. The battery went to shit first, I bought a new one and it's bad too. The phone is slow after about a year so I had to factory reset it, lots of glitches now too… Not getting LG again. August 24, 2018 Reply Glass Man Mr mobile can u do a review of the LG v35 thinq cant seem to find much at all on this phone August 26, 2018 Reply venomtail1 The hifi headphone jack was the determining factor for getting the lg v30 September 14, 2018 Reply mrjinkorea The wide angle camera is amazing. 120 degree field of view, 13MP, 1.8f stop lens so you can actually get decent night shots with the wide angle lens.

November 13, 2018 Reply S G Damn sir big fish you spent a crazy amount of time on the camera November 14, 2018 Reply Adam Cwalina I love my v30 . November 17, 2018 Reply calangel Turn the beauty mode and lighting settings to zero, make sure the resolution is at maximum, and turn HDR to either on or off, NOT on auto.
