  • Looks great, but that same horrible front shooter makes it's away to this phone as well?
  • Looks that way - seriously, what was LG thinking?
  • Yep. It turns out the S is for stupid. A couple of features that no one asked for or may not even really use. LG sending me a farewell over to Samsung.
  • S is for stupid aptly said!!!!! I am not sure what was the point of releasing this phone when all the features they could have released in a software update. Poor from LG. I was hoping they would bump up the front camera and add portrait mode. But LG ****** up bad!! Samsung and other companies are going to steamroll them.
  • So it's just software differences, that will be eventually pushed to the original? Odd choice.
  • Did they fix the PeeOLED display?
  • I'm thoroughly unimpressed by this, despite the 6/128 configuration. Same processor, same battery capacity, with even more (buggy and slow) software to push. The same color-shifting screen. Pointless, LG. If you were thinking that you'd steal some of Samsung's thunder before tomorrow, you failed.
  • No price listed? I sure hope LG isn't shooting blanks again. I wonder how V30 owners feel about this phone. 6 months too late? Yikes!
  • If I'm a V30 owner already, I wouldn't bother with this phone at all.
  • They need better front least 8mp
  • Yes they do I agree 💯
  • I'm figuring out why LG is making many different models of the V30. I still have no desire to own one.
  • Why LG, why?
  • Damn Lg, good luck. 😂
  • LG is one lost company. They may as well quit mobile at this point. they are done.
  • Definitely following in HTC footsteps which is definitely not a good thing by LG
  • Uhhhhmm, am looking at the spec sheet like😏
  • Should've upgraded the soc, front camera and add dual front speakers.
  • Most people who would buy a V30 have already bought one.
  • Wow LG didn't even try with this iterative update on the V30 and it goes a long way to seeing just why LG are a spent force in the Android world.
