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 4.2 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor front facing camera Generally speaking the phone has good specification that will rival better known mobile devices. However, LG have let the phone down in my opinion by providing a substandard front facing camera. Its extremely pixelated in low light, and in good light it leaves the image looking waxy. I have not experienced much lag, however the autocorrect function is slow and cumbersome which means you need to pause after every word for any mistakes to be corrected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning Phone I rarely write reviews but based on how confused I was before buying this phone I thought I would share my views on this phone. I deliberated for a long time between the Samsung S8, Pixel 2 XL and the V30. Any concerns I had about the V30 before buying it due to reviews I'd read about the screen, battery life and camera completely went away after using this phone. I've owned this phone now for a week and it's brilliant, screen is stunning and crystal clear, camera is a step up from my old Samsung S6 (all I compare against), the battery is normally at 50% at the end of a day after watching a film on the train to/from work (1.5 hrs) listening to music and moderate internet usage. The double tap to open the phone is a great feature but you then need to use your finger on the back of the phone to access it which is ok whilst it's in your hand but not whilst it's sat on your desk. Small gripe, some of the apps aren't optimised for a screen of this size so the clock and weather widgets look small and silly. Finally, if you love music/films then the Quad DAC is mind blowing!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Phone Excellent phone, can't fault it anywhere. So glad I opted for this over the Pixel 2 XL. Using it with Nova launcher, sidekick Google now and Pixel icon pack, quite simply the best phone I've ever owned. Deep rich vibrant colours, no lag, outstanding battery life. Well done LG.
