LG has gone on to officially unveil the new V30. The new handset from the company ditches the gimmicky secondary screen in favor of much better 6-inch P-OLED screen and a dual-camera setup. Regardless of those features, we have to say that the V30 is a smartphone to be craved for, thanks to its uniquely built glass body that bears resemblance to LG G6.
Let’s talk about the crowned jewel of the device; the dual-camera. The phone boasts a dual 16MP and 13MP setup at the rear — the first one carries an aperture of f/1.6, while the latter comes with a wide-angle sensor with 120-degree wide angle view. Though, up front, there’s only a 5MP camera for selfies. Nonetheless, the camera will still shine in most of the situation. Fortunately, the phone still focuses on video capturing, the result is its point zoom feature, allowing users to zoom the selected(pointed) area.
The LG V30 is the phone to put the company on the right track.
Shifting the focus, the LG V30 has routed to — as mentioned — a beautiful 6-inch P-OLED QHD screen slightly curved around the body. However, the company has axed the secondary screen filling the void with a Floating Bar and Always On display. On top of that, the combination of 18:9 screen and HDR10 support makes the device suitable for an entertainment junkie.
As for the hardware, the V30 improves upon the G6’s offering. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 as opposed to G6’s 821. The RAM, however, stays the same at 4GB, accompanied by 64GB of base internal storage, although, you can get the 128GB one. And yes, the storage is still expandable via microSD card.
The bad news here is that the V30 comes with a non-removable 3300mAh battery, which to me seems like a downgrade to last year’s V20 with a removable battery. However, the phone still stays true to the ground, meaning it is still durable like the two V-series phone. The seemingly pleasing aesthetic of the phone is coupled up with IP68 certification and MIL-STD compliance, preventing the phone from minor drops, water, and dust damages. And thankfully, there’s still a 3.5mm headphone jack with QuadDAC.
