This week, during the IFA 2017 show in Berlin, South Korean manufacturer LG finally announced one of the most expected smartphone of the fall, ready to compete with the likes of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and the upcoming iPhone 7s Plus. The LG V30 is a stunning handset, following the same infinity display trend a lot of manufacturers adopted, and rocking a dual camera setup on the back. But is it actually worth your money?
At a first look, it looks incredibly good, but, if you ask us, there’s something missing to put it in the same league with Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8, in terms of design. But don’t worry, since there are some aspects in which this phone can compensate!
A top notch camera on a big phone
There’s no doubt that one of the LG V30’s biggest pluses is the camera. The dual setup on the back combines a 16MP sensor, with OIS, with a 13MP wide-angle sensor, bringing a couple of very interesting gimmicks.
Specifically, we’re talking about the Cine Video mode, which allows you to zoom in on any subject in your frame and apply one of the 15 filters to the footage.
Moving on, the phone also comes with a huge, 6.0″ FullVision OLED display, covering most of the front and featuring a QHD+ resolution of 2880 x 1440 pixels.
Finally, according to The Independent, the audio part wasn’t ignored either, as the phone has a Hi-Fi Quad DAC, powered by B&O Play.
Finally, an LG with the latest processor!
Under the hood, the LG V30 features a high-end Snapdragon 835 chip, paired with 4GB of RAM, as well as 64 or 128 gigs of internal storage.
The spec sheet is completed by IP68 certification, making the phone water and dust resistant, a fingerprint scanner on the back and face and voice recognition technology.
The LG V30 is available in four different colors – black, silver, blue and purple – and it will be available in South Korea starting with September 21. And to answer our question: we can’t say if it’s worth the money, since the price is unknown. But it the price tag is decent, it’s definitely a handset worth investing in!
