LG V30 will have a 2-year warranty in the US


Update: LG and US carriers have announced that the V30 is coming to the US on October 5. Moreover, an LG V30 Promise website - with information about the extra warranty period - is now online and you can access it here.

AT&T released a promo video showcasing the highlight features of the upcoming LG V30, including its cameras, its 6-inch FullVision display, and its water-resistant body - but we already knew about all these. A new thing that AT&T's video - embedded below - is revealing is related to the US warranty of the V30.

Normally, in the US, smartphones come with 1 year limited warranty. Some months back, LG changed this with its G6 smartphone, offering another year of extra warranty for free. As it turns out, the company is doing the same thing with the V30.

As AT&T's video is showing (at 0:53), the V30 will come with LG's "second year promise", which basically extends the phone's warranty from 1 year to 2 years - for free. To take advantage of this offer, you will have to register your V30 with LG within 90 days from purchase.

Right now, we don't know exactly when the LG V30 will be launched by AT&T, or other US carriers. However, as reported a few days back, when the handset was released in South Korea, the V30 should be widely available stateside starting October. As soon as the phone launches, we'll let you know.

That’s all fine and dandy! Really that’s awesome! But I would really appreciate it if LG gives us a Release Date already that way we know when to expect it’s availability instead of keeping us in the dark. They are losing alot of people’s interest, I’ve been following their Twitter Account and been reading on Reddit, LG is really shooting themselves in the foot. Folks are jumping on either the iPhone or the Note 8, not a pretty picture for LG, and it sucks, because this Device has a lot of potential but LG is squandering their own Product to be successful.

Yeah, same here. I jumped on the iphone 8 plus because I lost interest in the V30 but ended up cancelling my iphone 8 plus order....... I need that oled screen, minimal bezels, quaddac and wide angle camera, so now im patiently waiting. (Ok not patiently, i keep screaming at lg (i mean my pc screen) But that iphone camera though :o especially the video image stabilization :o Maybe i should get the iphone :p Basically everyday is now like this in my head: Get the iphone 8 plus!! Awesome camera! 4k 60fps! Great ois! And ios is better than android!!! Nooo I need an oled screen, good audio and a wide angle camera! Noooo get the iphoneeee

Just watched SuperSaf camera comparison of iPhone 8 Plus vs Note 8. Note 8 blows it out of the park including the selfie cam, Telephoto, and OIS. 4K at 60fps is not on Note 8 but I heard it is coming via an update... I like the design of V30 better.

Same boat man, I want to upgrade from an SE but, LG is taking too long and the 8 is a great upgrade in my situation. LG is messing up, all I need is a release window and reasonable price and I'm in. I'll give them one week.

I think in europe by law, things have warranty for 2 years. a few years back apple had an issue with the eu org regarding not offering 2 years. good for lg for showing they believe in their products.

nope its 2 years. 2 years at the seller but the first year you can also bring/send it to apple. If you buy it directly from apple its 2 years.

That's fine but having no removable battery is still a deal breaker for me. Having a removable battery is what separated the V10 and V20 from everything else IMO. Looks like V20 is as far as I go.

I just want this device already. Just hoping that our perseverance will pay off in the form of a purchase incentive.
