LG highlights V30's video capabilities in 6 original short films

Released in the US earlier this month, the LG V30is one of this year's top extra-large Android smartphones, up there with thelikes of Samsung Galaxy S8+ and Galaxy Note 8, or the Google Pixel 2 XL. One of themain features of the LG V30 is its dual rear camera - thanks to a Cine Videomode and high-quality components, this camera is quite good atshooting video.   


To illustrate what can be done with a V30, LG has partnered withsix emerging filmmakers who used the smartphone to create short films. Allthe films were shot exclusively on the LG V30, being screened during the55th edition of New York Film Festival.  


As you can see below, all six films are quite well made. Ofcourse, while watching these movie shorts, it's often clear that they were not created using professionalcameras - there's obvious lack of sharpness here and there, some jelly effect, visiblenoise in challenging light conditions, and so on. Still, the films look good enough, thoughwe're certain that pretty similar results could have been achieved with deviceslike the iPhone 8 Plus, or the Samsung and Google phones mentioned at thebeginning of this article.

The High Stakes one was my favorite but I didn't really care for these videos too much and I'm a huge supporter of LG. I just felt like they could've done better. But that low light city scene with the one girl saying her poetry piece was on point.

The camera capabilities of this fine piece of machinery is truly astounding, but I feel LG should tell Consumers more about their Device than just it’s Camera Len(s). True that this is a VideoCentric Device catering to those who are interested in Content creation, but I feel they can go beyond that in their marketing and they’re sadly not doing it. HITRECORD is not going to make this Device fly off the shelves, Samsung/Apple Level Marketing will do that.

Right.. They should make short ad highlighting each of their feature (like moto or samsung short TV ad) Costumers need to know that V30 got these features: - Wide angle lens - Dolby Vision and HDR 10 - IP68 and MIL-STD - Face recognition and knock code - Always on screen - Quad-DAC - Cine Video Mode - P-OLED screen (with ~150% sRGB color gamut)

I was on the fence about trading in my note 8 for it. Is the screen issues really noticable?

Same here. But I decided to keep it unless I can get my hands on a Pixel 2 XL.

I think its only noticable on low brightness. I never put my brightness below 60% anyways, its almost always on max, so I'm not bothered by it.

No problem whatsoever on my V30, even on 0% brightness, all rumors, the screen is just beyond what I would call beautiful.

Not that impressive from what I can see. Could likely have done better.

The front facing camera is horrible. And lets not get on how bad snapchat runs on there.
