LG V30 and its intriguing rear camera unit get torn down on video
by Peter Kostadinov / Sep 20, 2017, 3:53 AM
As we told you earlier today, the LG V30 is about to begin shipping next week to eager early adopters in North America and Europe though pricing is still a mirage and that's quite probably hurting potential sales of the device.
Anyway, with the global release of the anticipated handset nearing, it's quite natural to notice increased media presence for the V30, with one of the latest and more interesting ones being a video by popular YouTuber JerryRigEverything. This time, however, he doesn't exert his usual body-bending and display-scratching tortures on the phone, but disassembles it on camera with the goal of showing us what makes the rear camera of the V30 interesting.
Surprisingly, it turns out that the insides of the phone are beautifully packed thanks to LG employing a semi-modular hardware assembly, which should make repairs and faulty hardware replacements that much easier.
Of course, with the camera being the main star of the show, it gets a lot of airtime having its 10-bit sensor and ultra-fast, F/1.6 glass camera lens. We wouldn't want to spoil the video for you, though, so make sure to check it out right below.
- Display 6.0" 1440 x 2880 pixels
- Camera 16 MP / 5 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, Octa-core, 2450 MHz
- Storage 64 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3300 mAh(16.5h talk time)

Already watched the video.Its a sponsered video by LG.Although it shows the camera modules and also looks like Lg V30 is easily repairable.

Not sure if I've ever seen a phone look as nicely packed on the inside as the V30. Also had the chance to play with one, courtesy of a friend who works for LG. I kinda love it and am looking forward to owning one.

I am kind of confused between this & Note 8 camera. I know V30's 1.6 aperture lens lets in little more light than Note 8's 1.7 aperture. But V30 has very tiny pixel size of only 1.0 UM and Note 8 has considerably bigger 1.4 UM which should technically let in much more light than V30. So it is 1.0 UM vs 1.4 UM & 1.6 vs 1.7 aperture. MKBHD & SuperSaf please pit them against each other, I need a conclusion for this :)

actually wider aperture means nothing if you have smaller sensor I read somewhere that the V30's camera couldn't let in more light than the Note 8's because it has smaller sensor and smaller lens system. The same thing apply on the bigger scale. A DSLR with a f4 lens can clearly let in more light than a smartphone with a f/1.7 lens. so technically, the f number means pretty much nothing

Best cell phone camera hardware? Really? The F1.6 lens is amazing, but don't forget the cheap 1/3.1" sensor with tiny 1 micron pixels... Videos are still that shaky that they become alsmost useless. They should add better video stabalization like Sony and Samsung.

I am definitely more impressed with the Note 8/iPhone 8 camera and Pixel over the V30 camera TBH And don't even let me get started on V30 front facing camera, it's pretty awful...I never really take selfies ever but it's still very abysmal, looks a few years behind compared to Pixel/iPhone/Samsung front camera
