Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro The camera is capable of capturing excellent images, especially in low-light conditions
The 16MP primary camera offers an impressive f/1.6 aperture that on paper and somewhat in reality puts this phone's camera above most of the competition for pictures in low-lighting conditions. However, it does not provide the best results in low-light conditions, that title belongs to the S8 and Pixel phones.
Where V30's camera truly shines though, is providing the correct balance for lighting and contrast for dim shots, like for example taking pictures at dusk.
Pro Offers excellent music listening experience
The V30 comes with a great QuadDAC connected to its 3.5mm headphone jack and with some clever software to bring the most out of it. Most of the time the built-in software intelligently deciphers the kind of headphones you are using in order to deliver the best sound possible to you, but if you want to, you can manually configure the sound settings in the software yourself as well.
Pro Excellent performance
The 4GB of RAM paired with the Snapdragon 835 offer an excellent performance. There's virtually zero lag when switching apps or when playing games or doing any other heavy activities.
Pro Battery life can easily go for more than a day on a single charge with heavy use
The 3300mAh battery performs excellently. Watching a 90-minute HD movie only makes the battery drop to 87% (other smartphones drop by at least 20%). By the end a typical day you can expect the phone to have 40%-50% battery left.
Pro Great for watching videos or looking at pictures
The V30 has a gorgeous 6-inch OLED with a 1440p resolution. It displays rich, lifelike colours and the overall contrast offers a great degree of depth to the images displayed on the screen.
Pro Phablet-sized display while still being small enough to be comfortable to use
LG have managed to increase the size of the screen by half an inch compared to the V20 without changing the overall size of the phone. They managed to do this by decreasing the size of the margins like so many other flagships nowadays.
Con Some bloatware is loaded out of the box
The V30 comes with some pre-installed LG apps such as G Health, an FM radio application, QuickMemo+, and some other small additions.
Con One of the most expensive Android smartphones on the market
At $829 it's one of the most expensive Android flagships on the market.
