Brand-new LG V30+ with 1-year warranty hits crazy low $350 price at Newegg

Brand-new LG V30+ with 1-year warranty hits crazy low $350 price at Newegg
As LG is reportedly gearing up to unveil not one, but two new high-end smartphones at the 2019 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, bargain hunters willing to settle for an older flagship model from the long-struggling brand should be happy to see the V30+ discounted to a lower than ever price.

We’re talking about brand-new, unused, untouched, and unlocked units here, so naturally, you’re looking at spending a little more than 250 bucks. But only a little. Namely, $349.95 over at NeweggFlash, the flash sale-dedicated website set to run this deal until end of day Saturday.

The LG V30+ is not very different from the “standard” variant, merely doubling down on the entry-level 64GB storage space while retaining the decent 4 gigs of RAM and Snapdragon 835 processor.

You can activate the handsets on special offer today and tomorrow with your favorite GSM or CDMA network, be it AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, or Verizon, and just like with most new mobile devices officially sold in the US, you’ll get a one-year limited warranty for parts and labor.

The lone color option available at 350 bucks is the “Aurora Black”, although the best part about this premium design is valid regardless of its paint job. “Engineered for the unexpected”, the LG V30+ can withstand water and dust interaction, as well as drops and various (moderate) shocks, with both IP68 and MIL-STD 810G certification.

If you’re wondering, no, you probably can’t do better than this OLED-sporting, thin-bezeled 6-incher with dual 16 + 13MP rear-facing cameras in the sub-$400 bracket. The Galaxy Note 8 is still significantly pricier unlocked, while the Moto Z3 Play packs a newer but substantially slower Snapdragon 636 SoC.

No notch, no hole hole punch. Excellent audio experience through the HiFi DAC. Still better batter life than 90 of the flagships that came out in 2018 and a beast of a camera still. $350 is a steal. Can you guess which phone I'm using? :D

thats a good deal and good phone too bad LG didn't include band 71 and 66 on unlocked model

I ended grabbing the T-Mobile model for this very reason. That 600mhz band worked wonders up in Maine

Does it come with a box of Bootloops? I don't trust LG as an OEM when it comes to smartphones.

I've been plagued with issues recently with my LG devices and I cannot trust buying their devices anymore. Bought my third Nexus 5x a month ago (first time was water damaged was my own doing, and second one fried itself when charging) and it started bootlooping less than a week ago. My LG tablet has been glitchy as f**k lately and reboots a few times I know the V series are incredible phones and you get a lot of bang for your buck, but I just have a feeling something will happen and I can't do it.

3rd one is kind of your fault, you bought a 4 year old phone known to have boot loop issues alongside the G4.

The other two I had never had this issue. The third one's bootloader was unlocked which the other two weren't.

Oh Venom with your pessimism and outdated issues. Those were the old days. LG fixed that problem since the V20. I see you being negative about any phone you don't particularly care just for the sake of it.lol

Can't let the old bootloop issue go huh. Every time LG makes a new phone, someone brings it up. That issue is well in the past. Just let it go, already. I currently own the LG V30+ and after a year, the experience is still great. It's a solid phone, worth more than what they're charging for it.

Why should people let it go? That's just the one out of many mishaps that LG is guilty of. Don't get me wrong, LG has made some great phones before like the V20. Today they seem to have lost their focus because they just can't seem to get it together. I'm not going to cry anecdotal evidence like some people will do.

You have more LG V30+ owners mentioning that the experience is great. You don’t want to accept it because you don’t like LG and want to troll its users, like you’re doing now.

I'm guessing you are using an outdated phone.

That "beast" of a camera compared poorly to 2016 flagships, it's one of the phones weakest links. Otherwise it was a great device when new, still good at this price.

Yep and I would wager it was compared in auto mode which is LG's weakest link. So I use manual 95% of the time and when uploading to social media where you can't pick apart the quality of the photo, it's an even playing field. On top of that, Google camera is amazing on the V30.

So a phone that's supposed to be a camera powerhouse is severely lacking and has to rely on a side loaded apk to take decent pictures?

61. rsiders

Posts: 1886; Member since: Nov 17, 2011

I didn't say it had to rely on a side loaded app to take decent pictures. It already takes more than decent pictures especially in manual mode but software processing is not LG's strength. Nice try though. From the stock camera the quality looks just fine to me.https://youtu.be/nAth8g05tfs

Isn't that more a bang for your buck phone than the one plus? I'd get this in a heart beat if its available in my area.

No worth it (LG V30+ owner here).

Why not? Runs smooth. Handles multitasking like a champ. Great camera and even better with Google camera. Excellent battery life and for only $350. What am I missing here? Not to mention one of the best audio experiences in terms of listening and recording available.

Software is buggy as hell, no support, camera is medioce - even with cstark. Good phone but not good enough in 2019 and 350$ price tag.

Funny thing is that I just watched a YouTube video and the guy mentioned how his never updated nor would it updated leaving to a pretty meh user experience. If it was $100 less it would probably be a good buy.

Camera with cstark is on par with Pixel 2 in terms of quality if you're being honest. The software may be slow and buggy with processing but the quality is there. As far as software goes, my V30 hasn't slowed down at all. Oreo takes care of everything for me. And MKBHD already proved that having the "best" camera doesn't always mean what you think.https://youtu.be/_5-bo8a4zU0

one update for a life time. enjoy with your your software bugs. a whole life.

Funny I haven't had any software bugs on my V30. I'm fine with Oreo for life as well. The lack of upgrades doesn't bother me one bit if the OS already does what I need it to.

I actually got rid of the G7 for the V30. The design is so much better. The blacks looked grey and the notch impeded far to much.

Or you can spend a hundred more dollars and get the OnePlus 6T.

38. Venom

Yup, the best of the best. Even if you don't want to spend that much, the 5T is still available at pretty good prices on the secondhand market.

The LG V35 is a beautiful phone. I own it and do enjoy it. At 350 not a bad buy at all. Personally I don't care about updates. I prefer my phone as I bought it.

That Dac and Wide Angle, not to mention IP68 kills that for ke
