LG V30 Plus Brief Review and Pros Cons:

LG launched Its flagship of the year, LG V30+ in August 2017. Reinforcing the trend of bezel-less displays, V30+ ditches bezels, and is packed in a beautiful design that never fails to impress. On the top and bottom, you do get some bezels, for housing the camera and speakers.

The smartphone flaunts a 6.0-inch P-OLED by LG, similar to one found on Google Pixel 2 XL, but with no widespread controversies to go along with it. The edge to edge screen, at an aspect ratio of 18:9, with a resolution of 1440 x 2880, packs an enormous pixel density of ~537 PPI. The screen justifies the praise with Its colors, crispness, and vibrancy. It handles contrast quite well too. With mercy on your eyes as the colors are not Samsung level saturated but still not the most natural and accurate like iPhone X.

The LG V30 Plus display has a protection of Corning Gorilla Glass 5, to give you some assurance with your careless handling. Nonetheless, the display is really impressive and tops everything else from LG, right now. It's not in the league of Samsung and Apple, but LG is doing pretty well.

The LG V30 Plus has a Snapdragon 835 at its core, much like every other flagship of 2017. The performance is undoubtedly blazing fast. The SoC is supported by 4GB of RAM, which might seem less on a flagship level to you compared with others like the OnePlus and Samsung Note 8, It still is a lot more than you would require for your multitasking dreams.

On the graphics front, we have Adreno 540 packed inside the Snapdragon 835, that makes the heaviest of games, quite smooth on this device. The performance as expected is flagship grade, with smoothness and fluidity in all the workloads, no hiccups on stutter whatsoever.

That’s what you expect from a flagship and LG promises that with V30 Plus. When comparing with other flagships of 2017, do expect a little less on benchmarking numbers compared to others with more RAM or better system optimisations, in real life, It really doesn’t matter much. On AnTuTu benchmark, the V30+ scores a bit higher than the Samsung Galaxy S8+ at 174456 points. On the GeekBench, It scores 1903 in single core, less than the Samsung Galaxy S8+’s 2006. On multi-core tests, LG V30+ scores 6495.

LG V30+ is LG’s flagship of the year 2017, and It clearly shows in the camera performance as well. There’s a dual camera organization with a 16MP sensor (f/1.6, OIS, PDAF) + 13MP (f/1.9), on paper this is probably the best camera setup of the year in all flagships, the performance doesn’t justify those numbers fully, though. It doesn’t match up or even put up an edge to edge competition with other contemporaries like Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 or the HTC U11 or Apple iPhone X. Google’s Pixel 2 is in another league. The smartphone does good with low-light photos, all thanks to those wide aperture lenses. LG’s Image processing is to blame here, and certainly, It can get better with updates to software, which isn’t the case here.

The video prowess of LG V30+ is also supreme, LG’s camera software is great with tons of configuration options, inside the camera app itself. If you are into raw videography and editing, you’ll fall in love for sure. Again, the numbers don’t match up with the performance but It is not that bad either. Pro Tip: Don’t compare it with the likes of Pixel 2, iPhone X, Galaxy Note 8 and you’ll be at peace.

On the front, you get a 5MP sensor, which is again decent but not the best of the lot. The low-light selfie lovers aren’t going to be much pleased with a f/2.2 aperture on the front shooter.

LG V30+ is powered by Android 7.1.2 (Nougat) out of the box, with no solid promises from LG regarding the coveted Oreo update. Android Nougat no doubt is good, but It is a 2-year old software, Oreo is considerably better and brings a lot more to the device, sadly V30+ doesn’t have that update in sight.

The LG V30 Plus comes with an average 3300 mAH battery, which works fine and will pull you through the day, but If you are a heavy user, the battery might not last for a full day. The smartphone is also enabled with Wireless charging if you are into it.

Also into the mix is QuickCharge 3.0, with 50% of battery in just 36min of charge. Let's talk about the IP Rating now, the V30+ is IP68 certified, so totally dust and water resistant, Peace of Mind.

The LG V30+ comes in at a price of Rs.44,990 in India and can be bought from  Amazon. The pricing is certainly aggressive but doesn’t match up against the likes of OnePlus 5T. If you need great performance and stunning design then go for it.
