Is LG taking jabs at the Galaxy Note 8 with these new V30 teasers?


LG and Samsung are both getting ready to release brand new high-end smartphones with large screens: the V30 and the Galaxy Note 8, respectively. While the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will come with an S Pen stylus (which may be seen by some as an essential feature), the V30 doesn't have any pen. Nevertheless, LG doesn't seem to be impressed by the Note 8 and its S Pen, as it released two V30 teaser videos that appear to be taking jabs at Samsung's upcoming handset.

The first video teaser shows someone breaking a pen and making a V out of it. The second video also features a pen, but this time it's used to write in a notebook, in Korean: "There's a reason to break up with you." After that, the written page is torn, and the notebook is hastily thrown away. It kind of looks like LG is suggesting that the V30 will make customers want to pick up a V30 instead of a new Note, doesn't it?

The LG V30 will be officially announced on August 31, while the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is going to be unveiled tomorrow, August 23. However, both handsets will probably be released starting September. 

We're obviously looking forward to comparing the two new smartphones once we get our hands on them. Meanwhile, you should check out our preliminary LG V30 vs. Galaxy Note 8 comparison to see how the two devices will likely differ.

LG honestly doesn't really stand a chance in front of the Note 8.

More like daydreaming.

I saw someone today who wasn't happy with their bootlooping G5 although I don't really see much of what that has to do with this article.

Verifiable sources regarding the S8 lag can be provided unless you want to stop while you still can.

Verifiable sources regarding the G5, G4, G3, & V10 bootloops can be provided as well, but once again, I don't see what that has to do with this article. Keep your godd*mned posturing to yourself because I have no desire to banter with someone as idiotic as you. You love responding to my posts, but you need to get off my d*ck because I'm far from interested.

Says someone who constantly replies to darkk even when he's not even talking about anything that related to you. Also, would you like some ice for that BURN that g2a5b0e gave you? Looks pretty darn severe.

Lol, look the fake one has returned to d*ckride Samsung's coattails. I'm pretty sure making d*ck jokes isn't a burn, but you don't care as long as you get your fill of them.

LOL look who's triggered, and as usual, you're just throwing child-level nonsense without even properly countering our claims, very pitiful indeed :(

Of course you don't. You and the rest of the Samsung flock love to stick your heads in the sand whenever it comes to anything that makes them look bad. Call it pointing out the hypocrisy. Why don't you make me. Don't post stupid stuff, or do something even better, don't post at all. I'm not interested in you trying to come out of the closet. That's something you can do with Darkkmite.

As one with an S8+ I will concur with that individual. I get hangs on the home Page A LOT. It really is concerning that a device with so much ram is getting stuck on the homepage. I Want the Note 8 with the hopes that the additional ram will sort out this issue... BUT my better sense is saying Wait young fella, their is a new and Exciting pixel forthcoming that will be well worth it. I can only be of these three beast: V30 always nice hardware with outdated software Note 8 Great hardware, but don't know what you going to get with the software after a few months (sometimes 30-45 days) Pixel XL 2 MAybe not as great hardware with a TOP NOTCH software and performance experience. Which do I dump my S8+ for??

Sounds like a rogue app. 1 S8 and 3 S8 + phones in the family here, no hangs on the home screen.

I read a ton of reviews today, they all called the S8+ the best phone there is. Maybe your friend caught tarditis from you.

You can only remain in denial for so long, tedkord.

He is like others, full of s**t, lol Maybe his friend need to stay off the porn sites. I won't say my s8+ never lags , it does very seldom. This phone is great and most of them know it, they just won't admit it. I have never had it hang on the home screen. Now bring me my note 8 Samsung. Just a few more hours.

Same here. The thing literally lagged while I was checking it out in store a few months ago.

What's that have to do with the phones in the title of this article?

In terms of sales? Obviously not. In terms of producing a quality device? I think they do.

I do agree I like LG and HTC they just don't give me what I want.

The only difference might be the screen size and the pen.

64. sissy246

More features and yes, the pen and the pen features. I used it a lot with my note 5 and really mess it now. S8+ is awesome but I want my pen, lol
