LG V30 Review

Score: 79.1 / 100

LG V30 is a high-end device released many years ago, packing a high-tech Octa-Core processor running at 2450 megahertz, a huge 6-inches screen, and two cameras, a 16 mega-pixels back side camera and a 5 megapixels front-facing camera. Let's take a better look at what this phone can do.

LG decided to power this cellphone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 MSM8998 system chip, backed up by a high speed 2450 megahertz Octa-Core processor with a big 4 GB RAM memory. A key feature of the LG V30 is its large 64 GB internal storage memory and an SD card slot, allowing the user to install hundreds of applications and even the largest games currently available without worrying about filling it.

LG offers this device in a wide range of color variations, black, blue, purple and silver. Regarding its aspect, the LG V30 is mainly built with Glass (Corning Gorilla Glass 5) and Aluminum . LG did a really good job making this phone weight only 5.57 ounces. Whereas this phone is just 5.97" long and 2.97" wide, it is able to fit a a 6" screen. This phone has a beautiful design, with a thickness of just 0.29 inches.

This phone has an amazing 1440 x 2880 6-inches screen, which makes everything look beautiful and brightful.

The LG V30 is equipped with two cameras, a 16 mega-pixels back camera and a 5 mega-pixels front-facing camera. Though it's 16 mega-pixels may sound great the back camera sensor size is quite small which makes pictures have less details and worse lighting than you would expect. This device also captures 4K 3840x2160 videos at 30 frames per second, and 1920x1080 Full HD slow motion videos up to 240 frames per second. This device also counts with time lapse video and auto-focus.

This cellphone provides WiFi capability (which can be provided to other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), 4G LTE-A super quick data connection and also HSPA+ internet connection (which is a bit slower 4G type) and fast 3G data connection, over HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This phone uses a Nano SIM card for GSM networks.

This cellphone packs a 3300 mAh great Li - Polymer non-removable battery providing this phone a marvelous battery duration. An issue to take into account is that this phone's battery is not replaceable so you can't change it when it starts to lose its charge, whereas with this big battery you will probably buy a new phone before that becomes a real problem.

This device also comes with many great characteristics such as Fingerprint ID, Face ID, Wireless charging compatibility, NFC, Bluetooth (5.0 ) and GPS Geolocation, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

LG is selling the LG V30 for 307 dollars, which is not so cheap for comparing with other similar phones. No matter if you are a photography fan, will use it as a work phone, want this phone to play games or want it mostly for internet broswing and social networks, you will definitely be very happy with it.
