    Post Meet the LG V30

    Headphone jack present and accounted for!

    LG just pulled back the curtain on its other 2017 flagship at IFA in Berlin. Android Police is already calling it the most refined phone that the company has ever built. Gone is the gimmicky second screen from the V20, but LG's unique dual-camera setup—standard and wide angle lenses instead of standard and telephoto—remains. This is also LG's first phone in a while with an OLED screen.

    Make no mistake here: with the V30, LG has its crosshairs on the Galaxy S8. And by first accounts they appear to have done a pretty good job. Here's a quick rundown of notable specs:

    Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 835
    Display: 6 inch P-OLED QHD, 18:9 aspect ratio
    RAM / Storage: 4 GB / 64 or 128 GB + microSD
    Battery: 3,300 mAh
    Rear Cameras: 16 MP OIS / 13 MP wide angle EIS
    Front Camera: 5 MP
    Other: IP68 water and dust resistance, wireless charging
    Colours: Aurora Black, Cloud Silver, Moroccan Blue, Lavender Violet
    OS: Android 7.1.2

    No word yet on pricing or availability, but I'll see if I can find a video hands-on and post it to the news round-up this afternoon...

    Probably useless to most people here, but as an audiophile, I am excited to learn that V30 supports MQA playback.

    The only thing bad so far looks to be the weak and non-removable battery.

    Kudos to LG for another decently sized phone.

    Can be pretty sure that T-Mobile will carry it - as this will be the first device with band 71 (600MHz) that T-Mobile just purchased.

    Nice phone, but I'll stick with my much cheaper G6 thank you very much. Just not enough difference for me to make the jump.

    For comparisons sake, here's the difference between the two:

    1- The V30 has a slightly larger OLED screen vs. the LCD screen on the G6. That doesn't mean it's better, just different. The LCD screen on the G6 is awesome, with excellent color reproduction and no chance of burn in, a possibility on the V30.

    2- The obvious one: 835 vs. the 821 processor on the G6. Real world, you're not gonna tell any real difference as the 835 is better optimized for power efficiency, not staggering power gains. Yes the battery life may be improved, but the V30's got the same sized battery as the G6 with a larger screen, I'm calling it a wash on the battery life because of this. My partner has an S8+, and we can't tell the difference in power playing all of the same games. Seriously, there's no difference. As for audio, the improved DAC on the V30 is a welcome addition, but for those of us who use bluetooth headphones, it wont make any difference.

    3- As is always the case, the V series phones are the video champs in LG's lineup, while the G series is for photo nuts like myself. The software and hardware on both are head and shoulders above any other flagships on the market, so depending on which way you lean, you're gonna be a winner here.

    4- The real reason the G6 is my and I'm sure many others champ here is of course price. The V30 will be hundreds of dollars more expensive than the G6 which just keeps on dropping in price, and that gap, even after a few months, will still be large enough that the G6 will keep it's crown as the real flagship killer of 2017(yes, I know it's a flagship itself, that's what makes it so great!).

    5- One last not so little thing: glass screen protectors. Curved edge screens simply have none, ask any Samsung Edge/S8/S8+/Note 8 user...that makes for less real world protection available to you. The flat screened G6 has no such issue, I just bought a three pack of said protectors for under 8 bucks on Amazon, easy peasy. For those of us with butter fingers this is a no brainer folks.

    All told you really can't go wrong with either phone especially if you can pay either one off over time. You go LG, coming back like a champ for 2017!!

    The V30 uses Qnovo tech, extending both battery life and total lifetime charge cycles. Works with the PMIC of the 835. There's also the Quick Charge 3.0.

    For the lack of removable battery we get an IP68 waterproof phone.

    V20 was the best looking phone in 2016. Note 8 Best looking phone in 2017 IMO.

    The V30, I would put it second after the Note 8 in 2017.

    Don't get me started on the iphones....
