LG V30 Review

The V30 is a radical departure from the V10 and V20. Is the V30 really so compelling that shoppers won't miss what didn't make it over from the V20?

With that display? No. No it most certainly does not. The score it has is already way too high.

No, I'm saying that defects in the display should be carefully considered in a review.

Then just tell me why Note 7 deserves a 8.7 an not a zero??? And if you read all the reviews about it you will think that this is the perfect phone because they forget to say what happened

Lol you didnt even buy V30 and you say V30's display is bad.

I'm going by the content of the review here (as well as other reviews). If there is an issue with the display, it needs to be reported and carefully considered. It's that simple.

You need to look at user reviews, this is a apple fan web site.

https://www.theverge.com/2017/10/16/16457544/lg-v30-review-design The verge rate it 7 only. Really like the V30 espically the desgin and lighter weight than any smart phone in the market. But display kills it :(

Don't believe everything you read. The display on my Verizon V30 is flawless. If you are seriously interested I'd go to the store and check one out.

Pixel XL got higher score... LG is better

Well, I can't see no similarities between the V30 and Pixel 2 XL, and this includes the screen. V30 is just vastly superior.

Yeah, It got better design, better screen (but still far from best), cheaper, and have ultra-wide lens.. But pixel 2 still have some advantage too, like better camera, and free cloud

Don't forget the head phone jack which is missing on the pixel 2. This makes the Galaxy phones and this v30 immediately take a spot above the pixel and iPhone. The pixel and iPhone also look super ugly. Specifically the iPhone with the notch on the top of the X. At this point it's between the s8 or the v30 for me and Ill wait until next year to see which one drops the most in price(usually the LG phones lol).

Could you guys like be more artistic when shooting videos? Cine Effect shooting only fences? That doesn't do justice to the feature. This review is haldbaked then come up with a conclusion of "None of this feels like a huge selling point for the V30" WTH Watch this videohttps://youtu.be/nAth8g05tfs

The display is everything but horrendous.

The Verge, Ars Technica, and multiple forums (Android Central,XDA,Reddit) mention how bad the v30 display is. Keep in mind, this was the phone I thought would be phone of the year.

The personal eyeball test is much better than any review for me. Or maybe because I wasn't looking at some blank, static screen or something but in just normal usage with media on the screen I didn't get a ugh look at this terrible display feeling.

You'll never get this kind of honest level talk from The Verge but LG has a problem with display inconsistencies and that's the real issue. Some displays are just fine. https://youtu.be/Pza632ry5sg

LOL it can be better then S8 in dreams only.

Please say , why S8 is better than V30 ? Do you have reason? Are you just a Samsung fanboy ? Or LG hater?

Why have iphonearena not reported on the news that Apple have reduced the accuracy of face id so that the components can be made quicker they made this decision AFTER the unveiling of the iPhone X ? http://www.reuters.com/article/us-apple-iphone/apple-reduced-face-id-accuracy-to-ease-production-bloomberg-idUSKBN1CU1AV

He didn't ask why they didn't mention it in this article, ha asked why they haven't mentioned it at all.
