Hello, Friends! Welcome back and today I’m going to take a look at LG V30 First Impression Review. LG has just announced their brand new V30 device and if you look at the total package, we start to wonder, what do we need the LG G6 for now embracing the curved bezel is designed? LG V30 priced at around 749 dollars. The V30 is much sleeker than the LG G6.
It was matured version of the LG G6. The V30 is a bezel-less phone with countless intelligent additions. The attention is on sound and video quality, but LG isn’t neglecting about smartphone basics. This is a good-looking sturdy phone that could well be one of the year’s best. So, let’s get started-
The LG V30 has a new elegant design, but a dissimilar thought as well. The native LG V10 was constructed as a very powerful handset with a removable battery. The LG V20 pushed the idea further by integrating heftiness with a business look.
This year’s LG takes a new step, and while it is very stylish and business-like, it is no longer designed with heftiness as a priority feature.
The LG V30 has a sealed (non-detachable) battery and a glass or metal rear panel like the LG G6. The metal stuff has a macro texture that looks awfully polished. The sides of the screen curve ever so moderately and so do the back panel, making it very comfortable to hold. Considering the LG V30 has a 6-inch screen panel, it feels almost incredibly compact and ever so light at just 158 grams.
On the front of the LG V30, there are tiny edges on the top, bottom and sides of the device. The screen’s corners are rounded, as are the phone’s frame. At the top front, we have front-facing camera and earpiece. On the bottom side, we have a USB Type-C and a single speaker grill. On the right side, we have a SIM card slot and on the left side, we have the volume rocker. On the rear panel, we have dual camera setup and fingerprint sensor sits below the camera unit.
The LG V30 is certified with IP68 for water and dust resistant. It also meets military specification standards, means it’s very enduring.
The LG V30 has P-OLED 6-inch display at 1440 x 2880p QHD+ resolution with Pixel Density 537 PPI. It has an 18:9 aspect ratio. The P-OLED display allows you to see deep blacks, inky because the pixels are turned down when they are not required. P-OLED display panel offers more vivid colours, deep blacks and generally, screen panel more punch than the LCD counterparts. Visually it appears much more colourful.
The LG V30 won’t get as vivid as an LED or LCD display, but we were satisfied with it in heavy sunlight. The display panel is easy to see in all viewing angles and the colours aren’t excessively saturated but still vibrant. One of the good things of the P-OLED display panel is virtual reality.
The LG V30 is now a fantasy device, meaning you can use it to submerge yourself in Google’s mobile VR platform, give you have the fantasy view VR headset already.
I loaded up The Protectors in HDR on Netflix and the experience didn’t at all appear like I was watching it on my smartphone, it drags me in with its vibrancy. LG has added a new mode that’s called Enhanced Colour Mode which gives non-HDR content a faux-HDR look.
The LG V30 has Dual rear camera setup, the rear camera is 16-megapixels with OIS and an impressive wide F/1.6 aperture that should help Night-Mode photography. Next, to that locates a wide-angle camera that captures photos with a 120-degree field of view. Additionally, this lens is covered is glass, not plastic, which LG claims that it increases the transmittance of light and details. The other lens takes care of the wide-angle shots and is improved to 13-megapixels and a f/1.9 aperture lens. The front-facing camera lacks optical image stabilization, but it still has a wide f/1.9 aperture lens.
Honestly, for me, this is a great combination of cameras. You might not get the ability to losslessly zoom or enter a bokeh increasing Portrait Mode. A feature LG simple calls artificial and would be reserved for cheaper phones, but the variation of shots obtainable with that wide camera is far more useful.
I took some images sample in a dark room and the results were good, but I’ll require to use it at better length to really get an idea of just how nice this camera is.
Let’s take a look at the video, with the LG V30 bragging a number of recording options that I haven’t seen before. The largest of these is a new file format called LG Cine Log which virtually allows you to colour grade your footage with a number of precast filters. These limit from Blockbuster to Noir, and in my short time with the device, they look nice. LG will ship 15 filters with the LG V30.
Another feature is Point Zoom, which lets you lock onto a target when you are film-making and pulpy zoom directly on the object. This is the only part of the camera unit that hasn’t been upgraded is the selfie-shooter sensor. It remains a 5-megapixel with LG basically accepting that it’s disclaimed the selfie image taking skills of this device to rid the bezel.
Performance & Memory: –
The LG V30 powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC which clocked at Octa-Core 2.45GHz and coupled with 4 gigabytes of RAM. You get the option to choose between 64 gigabytes or 128 gigabytes internal storage and an added microSD card allows you to increase it up to 256 gigabytes. The Snapdragon 835 is a great processor and we’ve yet to run into any problems with performance on the LG V30. Our time so far with the LG V30 has seen nary a falter while switching between apps, even when loading up compact games or the camera app’s comical and new abilities.
This is really very nice and smooth. LG has the smooth scrolling down on this device. I really hope that this nice and smooth performance will hold up over time especially once we get retail units. The main is this thing currently zippy and very responsive.
Now, like I mentioned to you guys this is a first look unit, so, I don’t want to make any definitive conclusions here. I just wanted to take a little bit of a look under the hood and I saw the gaming performance is very smooth and this device does not have any overheating issues.
Adding the latest tech with a pixel-dense P-OLED display panel was the right move new for LG V30. Not only does it put the LG V30 in the queue with the contest.
LG V30 comes with Android 7.1.2 Nougat out of the box and it retains many typical features. LG told us that it fully purpose to upgrade the phone to Android 8.0 Oreo as soon as possible. So for now, you’ll be able to enjoy split-window multitasking, but not the picture-in-picture mode that comes with the latest software upgrade.
Comical to the V experience, up until now at least, was the second screen display panel. The LG V30 changes that staple hardware characteristic into a software touch called Floating Bar. The 2nd screen panel might be gone, but it’s still here in spirit. On our review unit, the characteristic was rummily not turned on by default, but when enabled, it’s tucked away into the side of the display panel. A simple tap opens the Bar and holding on the app’s icon lets you move it wherever you want.
In addition to let out, you customize what kind of app or command goes into the bar slots, the feature also focuses on surfacing some of the smartphone’s more covered abilities, like QuickMemo note-taking and capturing image or GIF of the display panel. We’re looking further to testing this comical feature in-detailed, especially since it has more in similar with Samsung’s Edge feature than it already did.
LG also added a little something for the audio files out there implementing a Hi-Fi Quad DAC. The LG has put some serious value into your most expensive headphones. The base was rumbly and loud. The instruments were clear and distinct, disabling a Hi-Fi still gave a pleasing and balanced.
The LG V30 has a 3300 mAh battery capacity, so the V30 lands into the big battery size category. Interestingly, the V30 industrial design offers a great 640 milliamp-hour of battery per cubic inch. This is more than the Samsung Galaxy S8, S8+ or Note 8. It supports fast charging as well as wireless charging and charges via USB Type-C port.
Based on the first impression, The LG V30 is a smartphone with hefty attributes that define a high-end phone. It appears gorgeous and focuses on areas that other devices just don’t. The Quad-DAC sounds extraordinary and the added B&O earbuds are better than any other earphones I’ve seen. The camera unit, with its f/1.6 aperture, sounds good too. I’m slightly interested in its photography than video footage, but the new Cine Log recording and colour grading feature that goes along with it, that’s also great.
