Design and display

Seeing the big picture

The 6-inch display dominates the face of the smartphone, leaving just two slim bezels at the top and bottom. The OLED screen is 18:9 ratio, instead of the more conventional 16:9 ratio, giving you a larger picture, without a larger smartphone. At Quad HD resolution, everything looks pin-sharp, and the HDR10 inclusion tunes up all the colours too. 

Slim and strong

The V30 features a subtle curve on the rear, and measures just 7.4mm in thickness. It feels really comfortable to hold, and it’s really strong, too - protected against water and dust, to a depth of 1.5 meters with IP68 certification. 

Camera

More light for better shots

The dual lens rear camera has a super-wide aperture of f/1.6. This means that LG’s Crystal Clear lens can open really wide to suck in loads of light, for brighter more true-to-life colours. 

 

When using the camera’s Cine Video mode, you can take advantage of one of LG’s most exciting new features, called Point Zoom. As well as the impressive optical image stabilisation (OIS), you can smoothly pan into any point on the screen by giving it a quick tap. This adds a professional-looking element to your videos, and gives you more creative control. 

Hi-Fi audio video recording

With thanks to the B&O Play integration, you can record superior sound in your videos. You only record the bits you want – so, if you’re at a gig, and you want to dampen the audience noise, just set the directional receiver to the act and come home with a balanced and accurate recording. 

Under the hood

Bags of power

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor is running the show, backed up by 4GB RAM. You’ll never be slowed down when using your favourite apps, and with all that power, you’re all set up to use Google’s Daydream View VR headset. Simply download the app from the Google Play Store, and then slot the V30 into the headset for immersive virtual reality experiences. 

Giant battery

The 3,300mAh battery cell will comfortably see you through the whole day. And you’ll be able to power up 50% in just 36 minutes using the latest in charging technology, USB Type-C. Alternatively, you go wirelessly by placing the phone on top of a charging mat, and forget about leads and cables all together.

Accessories

LG V30 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best smartphones of the year. I have used a lot of smartphones over the years, and many LG phones. From the first wave of Android phones with Android Donut 1.6 on the LG GT540, the LG Optimus 3D, the LG G2 and LG G4. Along other phones as well including some very groundbreaking phones such as the Xiaomi Mi Mix. The one winning point for me is the Quad DAC setup on the LG V30, yes it was difficult to use at launch as only the default music player worked but as of now with Tidal fully supporting MQA format on their android app and with the app making use of the SABRE DAC in the LG V30 it sounds amazing, no other phone can compare. The screen is sharp, bright, colours are great and the so called "colour leaking" and blue tint I really do not see, the only time you notice any lines is if you stare at a pure white screen for several seconds but you will never do this unless you love the colour white (a lot). The build is premium with high quality glass and metal (LG has finally ditched plastic in it's phones.) Button layouts are great with power being exactly where you need it on the back, and volume buttons on the side. It's comfortable and super light for a 6 inch display. 64GB may not seem like enough today but I have yet to fill it with my MQA Hi-Res audio. It does support expandable memory so it will always have room for more. The camera is also amazing, many people seem to bash it (I've noticed mainly Google Pixel fans and carphone warehouse employee's who sadly are not informed enough on the more gritty and technical side of smartphones) but it really is great, the issues with the camera are on a software level which LG should hopefully address after the Oreo update. Installing the Google Camera app via APK enabled some truly amazing photo's although unable to switch between both lenses as the google app does not support dual lense. Wireless charing, USB Type C, Quick Charge 3, Headphone Jack and every sensor and feature you can expect in a flagship phone. Add daydream support and you have a phone that does it all. I would recommend this phone over any other out right now, if you are a user who relies heavily on the software of a phone and doesn't like to go into the Play Store to get third party apps then maybe give it a try first, LG has some catch up to do software wise. Most works, and you get many apps other brands do not bother to do. Like an FM Radio natively among other useful features that LG did first. If you don't mind getting third party apps for some functions then the LG V30 is a great phone with expandable memory.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best phone to date and a great price I have had LG phones in the past and as much as ive liked them, the have always been issues. This phone is something else. LG have done everything right. Great screen, amazing camera and a battery that lasts well over a day with fairly heavy use. If i was to pick fault, it would be the fact that the cameras native ratio is 4:3 having to dowscale to 12mp to get a 16:9 image but these images are still great quality. Best phone available to date and a great price

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best I purchased a Google Pixel 2 but was very disappointed with it so I sold it and got myself an LG V30. I’m very pleased with every aspect of the phone. It’s fast has a great camera and fits really nicely in the hand. The buttons aren’t fiddly at all and the on/off/fingerprint button and reader at the back is a great idea. I do own an LG V20 so I was used to this anyway. If your looking for a top of the range Android phone at a reasonable price you won’t go far wrong with this one. Great battery life too and wireless charging is a real bonus.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best phone camera ever I've had my V30 about a month now and its a wonderful device with great battery life & has the best camera i've ever had on a phone, way better results than i was getting with my S7 edge. I read all the reviews etc before i bought it & have no idea what all the complaint were about the screen as i've had no problem with it, in fact it is really bright & clear
