LG V30S ThinQ Review

Score: 10.36/10

LG V30S ThinQ is a wonderful phone launched a few years ago, counting with a high-tech 2.45 GHz Octa-Core CPU, a large 6-inches screen, a 16 megapixels back facing camera and a 5 mega-pixels front side camera. But it's time to get into a bit more detail.

The LG V30S ThinQ is available just in 16 777 216 color. This phone construction combines Glass (Corning Gorilla Glass 5) and Aluminum . The LG V30S ThinQ only has 5.97" long, but it still manages to hold a 6 inches display. This phone is just 0.29 inches thick, making its way into the thinnest devices podium. LG made a great design job making the LG V30S ThinQ as lightweight as 5.57 ounces.

LG packed this cellphone with a beautiful 6-inches screen, and a resolution of 1440 x 2880 , making everything look absolutely perfect.

LG sells this phone with a high performance 2450 MHz Octa-Core CPU, included in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 MSM8998 chip with a great 6 GB of RAM memory. This cellphone counts with an excellent 128 GB internal storage memory and an external memory slot, which allows the user to install hundreds of applications without worrying about how much storage capacity is left.

This cellphone has two cameras, a 16 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 5 MP front camera. Though it's 16 mega-pixels may appear incredible the back facing camera has a small 0.323625-inches sensor which makes photos be less detailed and darker than they should. This cellphone can also shoot 4K 3840x2160 videos at 30 fps, and 1280x720 HD slow-motion videos up to 240 frames per second. Additionally, the camera includes auto-focus and time lapse video.

This cellphone has WiFi connection (which can be provided to other devices as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A (4G) ultra fast internet connection and also HSPA+ connection type (a bit slower 4G type) and the fastest 3G connectivity, over HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This phone works with a Nano SIM card for GSM connection.

This device also comes with a wide variety of interesting characteristics as Fingerprint Sensor, Facial recognition to unlock, Wireless charging compatibility, NFC, Bluetooth (5.0 ) and GPS (Global Positioning System), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This cellphone counts with an awesome 3300 mAh Li - Polymer non-removable battery that can keep this cellphone running for several hours, although you may need to charge it if you use it heavily. An issue to consider is that this cellphone's battery is non-replaceable so you won't be able to replace it when it begins to lose capacity, although having 3300 mAh you will probably buy a new cellphone before it happens.

The LG V30S ThinQ is not a very good choice considering it is offerred for 930 dollars, while other similar devices are being sold for much less than that. No matter whether you want this device to take tons of photographs, want a phone for work, want a gamer cellphone or are looking for a social phone, you will probably be very satisfied with it. If you buy the LG V30S ThinQ you also get Headphones, USB Type-C Cable, Quick Charge 3.0 Charger and SIM removal tool .
