LG V30: all new features

The cat is out of the bag: the LG V30 has gone official and it is just what rumors and leaks painted it to be. The 6-inch flagship phone by LG is a powerhours that does not skip on features: it has got top-tier hardware, sleek design and a few extra tricks in the audio and photo departments to make it stand out.

It also does away with the secondary display concept that was one of the hallmark feature of the LG V series. Instead, the V30 comes with a virtual "floating bar" that serves as a kind of a replacement. The bar is actually a translucent half-circle that reminds us a bit of the Samsung Edge functionality: it sits near the edge of a phone and you tap it to bring up a menu of shortcuts and other time-savers.

So what are all the notable new features in the LG V30, you might wonder? We round them up right below.

I hear you. The features combined with a good price sets this phone apart from the higher end Galaxy handsets

It seems to be a great phone with lots of features. However, the only reason that I will not purchase this phone is due to only having 4GB of RAM. I have owned the Pixel XL, currently have the LG V20, Iphone 7 Plus and Asus Zenfone AR and the thing I find lacking in both LG and Iphone is the lack of RAM. Aside from the cool gimmick AR in the ASUS, I am really enjoying the 6GB of RAM. There is a huge, noticeable difference between the phones whenever I use them.

I can't believe that it won't have FM radio! Please tell me this is not true!
