LG V30 Review

LG has launched a new phone under the V-Series and the V30 is an upgrade to the LG G6. With no updates on the launch of LG G7, V30 remains the solid choice for LG fans looking for a flagship smartphone. The phone was launched at IFA 2017 in Berlin. LG is known to keep its devices a secret until the launch. Likewise, the company not only revealed the name but also the specs and features during the launch.

The LG V30 was launched for a mighty price of £799 during the launch which was one of the most expensive smartphones at that time. But as usual, LG has cut the price and made it affordable as it is now sold for £599. It is now much cheaper than the rivals HTC U11 and Galaxy Note 8 which are approximately £100 more than the LG V30.

The V30 has a metal frame and the rear cover is made of glass which is decked with the dual camera, power button and LG branding. It also comes with an IP68 rating which means the phone is completely waterproof and can be used under 1.5 meters of water for 30 minutes without water clogging it.

The V30 has a variety of colors to choose. You can choose between Aurora Black, Cloud Silver, Moroccan Blue and Lavender Violet.

The LG V30 sure has a lot of things to brag about. We feel that LG has taken the G6 and upgraded in all the right areas and refined its already sleek body to make the V30. After the price cut, and cleverly pricing it at a reasonable price of £599, it is an excellent phone offering great design, cameras, screen and audio.
