The South Korean giant, the LG electronics is bringing its second flagship ‘V’ series V 30 smart phone to India. Announced in month of August 2017, the company plans to roll out the phone in late September or earlier if the rumours suggest the date of 12th September against the highly awaited Apple’s Iphone 8.
The LG V30 is a bezel less phone with numerous additions. The company’s main focus is on audio and videography in addition to the basic features in a smart phone. LG V30 is so beautiful that it could easily surpass any other phones and become the year’s best.
Design & Display: LG V30 is the slickest phone to date. With the G6 model, LG had started to care about phone’s LOOKS, and the V30 takes that to the next higher level.
Like the Samsung S8, the LG V30 says ‘ welcome’ to bezel free design and a huge OLED 6 inch (2880 x 1440 ‘Full Vision’ HDR 10 panel) screen taking up much of the front. It boasts the same 18:9 aspect ratio and QHD+ resolution, but visually it appears much more colourful.
The sides of the screen curve ever so slightly and so does the rear, making it super-comfortable to hold just as light at 158 grams. Gorilla Glass 5 covers both the front and back, a fingerprint sensor is found on the back and acts as a lock too.
Colour options available will be a Premium black, bluish tinged silver, darker blue, and an odd lovely deep purple.
Hardware and Software: LG alo has used the latest components inside the V30. There have been no compromises here too with throwing the latest Snapdragon 835 SoC, 4GB of RAM and either 64GB or 128GB internal storage.
LG V 30 runs on a skin UI built over Android Nougat 7.1.2. The LG’s UI is not overly offensive, but it isn’t as good-looking as vanilla Android on a Google Pixel 2, for example.
Camera: The camera on the LG V30 is absolutely stacked with features, making it an exciting buying option within high ranged mobiles. The phone is a dual rear camera phone with ‘main’ camera of 16MP with OIS and a wide f/1.6 aperture that should help low-light photography. Secondary camera lacks optical image stabilisation.The front-facing sensor is a very less 5 MP with LG basically admitting that it’s sacrificed the selfie-taking skills of this phone to rid the bezel.
Battery life: A humble 3300mAh Li polymer battery will keep the LG V30 alive, which is the same size unit included in the smaller LG G6. It’s far too early to comment on the battery capabilities of this phone, but hopefully the more efficient CPU will help it perform better. It charges via USB- type C and supports fast charging as well as wireless charging.
Audio & Sound: While the iPhone 8 and Moto Z2 Force are not giving the headphone jack, LG is actively improving and championing the port. The main cherry on cake is that LG is not only giving a nice pair of Bang & Olufsen (B&O) ear buds in the box, but there’s a quad-DAC inside the phone that seriously improves audio quality and sound which will interest many audiophiles out there.
Personally being an audiophile and affinity for crisp and clear sound capabilities, I’m excited by the LG V30.
Reasons being that it looks gorgeous and focuses on areas that other phones just don’t. The quad-DAC sounds exceptional and the included B&O ear buds are better than any other boxed headphones in high ranged phones out there in market with pricing of above Rs 60,000.
The camera specially the rear ones are great too with size 1.6 apertures.
Thus, the LG V30 could be an Android smart phone that sets all the important specs on fire and the one that really takes on the limelight away from an Apple iPhone and Samsung Note 8.
