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: 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...

LG V30

 

LG's big-screen V30 lets you roam farther and capture wider images than other smartphones.

Dual cameras, one ultra-wide angle. Gigabit LTE. First phone for T-Mobile's new 600MHz network. Well-placed fingerprint sensor.

Applies too much noise reduction in low-light photos. Battery life isn't great.

LG's V30 is a phone for a wide, wide world. As the first Band 71 phone, it's the one T-Mobile subscribers who aren't thrilled with their current coverage should grab. As a wide-angle camera phone, it's one that anyone with a big family or a wild group...

The LG V30 is a surprisingly good choice for cash-strapped YouTubers

 

Want to vlog but don't have the cash for a DSLR? Check out the V30.

Review: LG V30

 

The LG V30 is a flagship handset that tries to move the needle forward with a stylish design, 18:9 display, and powerful camera features. This metal-and-glass Android slab is a gorgeous piece of hardware that has lots going for it. Unfortunately,...

The V30 comes so close to being a perfect smartphone, but it falls short in a few categories that ultimately hold it back a bit.

LG V30 Review: A Near Masterpiece for Media Producers

 

There's so much to like about the LG V30. And while it doesn't necessarily eclipse the best hardware from Apple, Google or Samsung, it provides an excellent alternative if those other flagship phones fail to grab you.

Slim, light design ; Delightful wide-angle camera ; Immersive display ; Excellent audio from the Quad DAC ; Headphone jack

Mono bottom-firing speaker ; LG software learning curve ; Poor battery life

The LG V30 stands out from the competition with a fun wide-angle camera, killer audio and video-creation features professionals are sure to love, but the battery life is short.
