T-Mobile intros the LG V30+, 128 GB of storage space and premium headsets included


Previously sold only by Sprint and US Cellular, the LG V30+(or V30 Plus) is now ready to be released on T-Mobile - which, of course, isalready offering the regular LG V30.



 



T-Mobile will officially launch the LG V30+ on November 17- that's also the day when the carrier starts selling the rugged Samsung GalaxyS8 Active. According to T-Mobile, the V30+ will be available in limitedquantities, costing $850 outright, or $130 down and $30 per month over 24months. This makes the new handset $50 more expensive than the regular V30.



 



There are only two differences between the LG V30+ and thenon-plus version of the smartphone. The V30+ offers 128 GB of storage space (insteadof 64 GB), and comes with premium headsets in the box (while the retail box ofthe regular V30 doesn't include any headsets).



 



We'd say that the upgraded storage capacity alone is worththe extra $50 for the LG V30+. Then again, the magenta carrier is offering various otherattractive high-end handsets at over $800 (including Apple's iPhone X), so it may not be that easy to choose anew smartphone. Well, at least you'll have more options to consider come November 17.

I literally took delivery of my V30 yesterday. So, no I am not too happy. But it is not worth the effort to return the phone. It takes Tmobile so long to process a return by mail.

I wanna thank LG for not releasing the phone in The Netherlands, After 3 months of waiting there still isnt a release date. (Probably gonna be first week of December) Its great seeing different phone versions getting released in the US while we still have to wait. Best customer service ever. Not even giving us a release date. Thank you for making sure I wont ever buy an LG phone in my life.

My G4 started bootlooping and LG refused to fix it even though it was a manufacturer error. I get what you said about best customer service ever. I totally agree. I also want to thank LG for showing me what product company not to buy from ever again. Thanks!

LG has a very good customer service here. They gave G5 over g4 , G6 over V20 to some people that had bootloop. You are unlucky

Things I wanted from the V30+: -Stereo speakers -6GB RAM -Bigger screen, maybe 6.2 inches -Dual curved screen, bumping up the Screen-to-Body ratio -Bigger battery -Higher-res display to go along with the bigger screen size -Improved 16-megapixel main camera like on the G4 (such amazing detail in those pictures!) What I got from the V30+: -More storage and headphones. Expected much more from LG

Im surprised that T-Mobile will have the V30+........and this bit of news makes it harder for me to decide between this phone and the Note 8

Strange to see T-Mobile getting two variants and I'm guessing this one comes in black since its the color option they show in the announcement. Nice to finally get some options.
