LG US998 reviews

LG V30 US998 64GB Smartphone (Cloud Silver) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from 1st batch product I got this in May 2018 but unfortunately they sent me the unit likely from the first batch of production "popular" with various issues like- bluish screen. even at a slight movement while browsing, you could notice that the upper half & the lower half of the screen got two different color tones!, then there is a white/amber pixel lit in any deep black background which is not easily identifiable and so on.... I live in a country where I have to import electronics from abroad like US or UK and thus unable to claim any sort of warranty /refund. not that I needed them anyway. bhphoto has long been one of a trusted names to me..... until this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Small Business Phone - on Verizon We've used many different phones including Moto, LG & Samsung. I switched my personal phone after 5 years with Samsung Note II and IV. I appreciate the flat no-nonsense screen on the V30 vs all the useless curved glass on the Note 8 'monster' phone. As far as I'm concerned the Note 4 was the last no-nonsense phone from Samsung. No problems activating on Verizon. Just make sure they can scan the bar codes on your box and this model instantly registers in their system. I installed the MOKO tempered glass screen protector and a Speck Presidio Grip case. The V30 I purchased here was manufactured Jan 2018 - no screen issues. No other issues in the 2 weeks I've had this wonderful phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For Those Where Music Quality Matters The V30 is smooth and quick running (no stutters scrolling, ever), has a great feel and balance to it physically, has a very nice display, a good main camera (not so good selfie cam), and a fantastic Hi-Fi music capability. This is by far my favorite Android phone--and its the first to feel as integrated and smooth as my Apple phones did in the past.� Overall, as a phone, I'm very happy. I'm more than happy, however, at the ability to plug in a set of great headphones, or an AUX into my car, and to be able to play much higher quality sound via the Hi-Fi DAC that is available. I didn't think it was going to make much of a difference, but is really does.� If quality music is your thing, get this phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Of The Best Smartphones Ever I have the T-Mobile version and will get an unlocked as well. This is a smartphone that does everything really well. It looks and feels great, lightweight but solid quality build. Great P-OLED screen with great color. Quad DAC for the headphone jack provides excellent sound. The only phone in the U.S. that hooks into T-MOBILE's super fast 600mhz band (faster than gigabit). 4k video capabilities. Best Smartphone Ive owned after 20 sine myPalm Treo 600 days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible phone with minor annoyances I upgraded to this phone from the LG V10 and overall the upgrade has been fantastic. The phone is fast, sleek, and feature-packed. The biggest upgrade is definitely the OLED screen - it's absolutely stunning. Even next to a brand new iPhone X, the LG's screen is an obvious winner (see the image showing the same exact picture on both phones. The LG is on the left). My unit also shows no banding at low brightness, although whites do appear a bit dirty/gray. One of the primary standout features is IP68 water resistance. The SD slot is also a feature rapidly disappearing from today's flagship devices. Unfortunately, in order to permit wireless charging and to provide a more sleek look, LG has ditched the removable battery. The battery appears to hold a long charge and has performed well for me so far, much better than my old V10's were performing, even with 3 different batteries I was swapping between. However, we all know that the battery will lose capacity over time and now replacing it with a freshly purchased one is a much bigger endeavor. Additionally, I have had to use the battery-pull reset method on my LG V10 many times, and I'm worried that the button reset will not be as powerful for resetting purposes as pulling a battery. The phone is very sleek and beautiful; it feels as nice as the iPhone X and Galaxy S8+ do. Unfortunately, it loses the rugged durability of the V10, which means that 95% of us are going to wrap that sleek body in a clunky case anyways - so I don't give LG too many points for the beauty of the device itself, as we won't get to appreciate that during normal use. This unlocked variant is definitely the way to go - the device came� almost entirely bloatware-free, with only a few LG apps that aren't too frustrating anyways. The ability to hop between carriers is also fantastic. One thing to note here - this variant does not come with the extra cord and USB-C wall plug that ship with Verizon's variant. So if you want to use USB-C charging speeds, you'll have to buy a type C-C cord and type C wall plug. The software features feel fast and powerful, and there are little useful things left and right. Go watch a YouTube video of V30 software features and you'll see what I mean. One-handed support, fast camera launch, almost everything can be customized, the floating bar is nice, etc. Using the device is very enjoyable. The primary annoyances I have discovered so far are: loss of removable battery, volume buttons moved to the side from the back (can be more easily bumped in pocket, etc.), headphone jack moved from the bottom of the device to the top (less convenient for when in pocket, but at least there still IS a jack), wide angle mode for selfie camera is terrible, selfie camera itself is not great, and whites look a bit dirty with brightness turned all of the way down. That said, the upgrades are impressive and well worth those losses. I highly recommend this phone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An LG phone that shouldn't be overlooked! The unlocked LG V30 is everything I had hoped for in a flagship phone. With the lowered price, it was difficult to pass up and I'm glad I did not. I'm using this on T-Mobile with HD quality calls and WIFI calling when I choose without any problems. LG has installed minimal bloatware which is another plus.�All of the many software features work well. Just received an update from LG. Thought it was the Oreo update, but only security. Now running 7.1.2. �Very pleased with my purchase and customer service at B&H PhotoVideo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG LG V30 US998 64GB Smartphone (Cloud Silver) LG LG V30 US998 64GB Smartphone (Cloud Silver) this is the most under rated phone on the market, the OLED display beats Samsung and Apple, the picture quality is 4K and knocks out the competition when you add in the Sony sound system adjustability, with presets ahead of recording and also adjustability afterwards, it is slim it is small feeling but a VERY LARGE phone indeed.
