Yes. If it were my time and I didn't already have the G6, I'd be on board.

Pay attention, Samsung. That's the proper (and better looking) setup for dual camera and rear fingerprint sensor. So common sense. Looks really nice,too.

Fingerprint is a non-issue for me, but that doesn't mean it works for everyone else. But yeah, I completely agree with the camera part, super wide angle lens is the best setup, and now since the V30 has an OLED panel, I know for sure that I am getting this bad boy to replace my S8.

I was just talking layout. I see no real advantage to any of the dual camera setups so far. The FPS positioning is just light years better on the V30, and the back looks better, too.

Super wide angle lens is the only dual camera setup that I care about. I skipped over the G6 because it didn't have an OLED screen, and I'm definitely getting the V30 since it has almost everything I want in a phone.

So you're getting the V30? Nice! I'd love to hear your thoughts about it compared to the S8. I'd love to get one myself as the V30 has everything I wished for in my G6 (except for the battery), but I'm still not sure if I should purchase two phones in one year as a poor student.

Will do if they didn't price it as stupidly expensive as Samsung did with the Note 8 here. But it's so tempting, I love almost everything about it.

And Samsung's excuse is to have room for "bigger battery" yet V30 has the same capacity and similar footprint and finely executed the implementation.

Yeah, because the S-pen, Iris scanner, OIS on both cameras, doesn't take any extra space. I didn't see you crying about the tiny battery Sony put on the XZ1.

Fine, so now how about S8 and S8+'s excuse?

Does the V30 have an S-Pen?

You mean the wasted space ? No.

No...actually I mean the best stylus on the market. The one that buries the Apple Pencil. Hate all you want, but the V30 is a Note/S8 ripoff, from the look down to features. Now NO that b!tch.

Does note 8 have such awesome audio features

The audio features are only relevant if you have high quality headphones

Spen is only relevant if you use all its features

Love it! Now only want to know the software optimization is great as well!

I am interested in buying this phone. My only concern is how often LG phones receive software updates? is there any lag with time? Currently I am using Nexus 6P and after 1.5 years, occasionally my phone shows the signs of lagging. Any LG flagship owners give your feedback in this regard. Thanks Naveen

Same, update and lag

As for my experience, they get the first update sooner but they fall behind in the later updates.... As for the lag... I prefer EMUI from Huawei... they offer the best software optimizations and doesn't lag even after a year of usage... Telling this from my experience with the Honor 8...The phone is still as fast as it was when I first bought it... The only complaint that I have is the camera quality... but for $400 it still provides a great camera experience..

hi i have some exprerience with LG, i owned a LG G2 and a LG G4 soft updates will never be as good as a nexus or pixel phone.. never but it receives the updates before samsung at least, still a couple of moths usually around 4 months, on a side note i will NEVER BUY another LG smartphone again, i love LG smartphones (mustly because of the camera and usually more affordable price with great specs) but both of those phones died on me within moths of purshase, the bootloop issue which was caused for faulty manufacturing process, i heard it got slighly better with the G6 but still have a prevalent issue, the tricky thing about this issue is that it doesn't show itself until moths later, if i were you i'll wait for the Pixel 2 or maybe go for the Iphone 8 or Note 8.

My mom still using G2 that was purchased in the first day it was went on sale in my country. And my sister also holding her G3 that was also purchased in the first day on sale from South Korea. And me also having G5/G6 as a backup phone, it was purchased in the first week when it went on sale in South Korea, too So, I've found that bootloop problems with G5,V20,G6 to be an isolated case that weren't related to each other.

Hi Naveen, as someone who has purchased numerous prior year LG flagship phones (LG G2, LG G3, LG G4), my experience is that LG is one of the best Android OEMs at updating their phones to the latest Android version. In June last year, for example, I purchased a couple of LG G3 phones for use and resale overseas, since I didn't want to take chances on my S7 edge getting stolen. To my surprise, though the G3 was released in May 2014, they immediately updated to the latest Android version available at the time (Android 6.0 released in October 2015). Additionally, I haven't experienced any lag with them, and the displays and cameras are have been very good, which were big reasons why I bought them as alternatives to my daily driver.

LG V series is now following the failure of G Pro series. Original V10 was durable and has dual screen. V20 losing durability, but kept dual screen. Now V30 lose everything, following others for dual camera set up. The LG G Pro was very impressive, then there was G Pro2 and died. This is the same thing, losing all focus and died. No more LG.
