Despite its 6-inch, 18:9-ratio, QHD+ display, the LG V30+ weighs less than 160g and is only 7.3mm thick—that's both lighter and thinner than its predecessor, while still boasting a screen 5% bigger. Behind the V30+'s crisp, 2880 x 1440 FullVision display is a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, which features a big.LITTLE configuration.

The V30+'s camera setup includes a pair of rear lenses: a 16MP standard field-of-view sensor and a 13MP wide-angle lens. This dual-camera setup allows you to take advantage of the V30+'s many advanced photo- and video-capturing features and effects, including Pop-Out Picture Mode, Film Effect, and much more. A 5MP selfie camera is also onboard and comes with its own set of unique features, including Gesture Shot, Selfie Light, and Beauty Shot— to name a few.

LG US998U Reviews

LG V30+ US998U 128GB Smartphone (Aurora Black) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's the Music, Stupid It all began with giving myself over to streaming instead of (primarily) the 1,000+ CDs in my closet. Added a Dragonfly Red DAC to my Google Pixel (a very capable phone.)? Result was music close-enough to CD quality on home stereo at least for casual listening. Quality nearly indistinguishable on Bose QC 35.? But Pixel was constrained by 32gb storage--no card slot, and downloading from Tidal filled that up.? The combo of LGV30+ 128 storage (expandable) and the LG DAC have made streamed music viable for me. Also returned the $200 Dragonfly (highly recommended for other phones.)? I have little use for the other features (photo, mostly) on the phone. Can't understand why LG marketing doesn't promote high quality music more than it does.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Phone is amazing with incredible cameras! I've been long time Samsung user and though I've enjoyed Samsung this Phone blows them away. The battery life is simply amazing. I can use this phone almost non-stop all day and still have more than 50% at the end of the day. It seems to run really like without a lot of background processes like the Samsung phones. Can't say enough about the image quality, ease of use, and the photography specs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Im happy with my purchase but there are some things i would change This phone is very good at resource management, generally speaking you dont get apps that just stay open forever, its very responsive, i personallly like the display too. Now for the bad.... The stock camera on auto( without taking ~3minutes to compose a shot in manual mode) is not good. I used the apk "MGCB_7.0H_C2API_Min_v.1.4" google camera + hdr mod to get decent results however. It kinda makes me mad with all this great audio oriented hype, they totaly removed the equalizer, you just get a couple high pass filter options only when a headphone is plugged in. Think DAC, they plug that thing in there and whatever clear sound comes out is what your stuck with. I think the lg v30 sounds fine but i wish i had the option th adjust the eq my self. The fast charging usb c is nice, the wireless charging is more of a pain than its really worth, im buying one of those magnetic usb c pogo adaptors for this device to charge it when at work. I use wireless charging over night. I might add that the finger print reader works first time every time... Its my first device to have that feature so im kinda happy about that. This concludes my review after spending about a 3weeks with my lg v30+

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Production Cinema Camera Phone B-Roll Camera Phone? I needed a solution for B-Roll. Dragging out my big guns was time consuming and heavy. So I decided after much research to purchase LG-V30 Plus concerned mostly with its ability to shoot 4k Cinema Quality Video with Manual Controls including 10bit. There are no other phones that can shoot video like this Phone. So I married the phone to a IKAN DS-2-A Beholder gimble along with IKAN Flex handle stabilizer kit and a Ikan Monopod and Mini Tripod. This camera in this phone can rival my GH-5 Footage. You can also save to the SIMS Card and in RAW Format or even in V-Log format for greater flex in Premiere and Resolve. LG has decided to give the Film and Video Professional a "Production Phone" I will post video and pics soon. So far the phone does anything I want it to. 128 gigs of internal storage is very refreshing and up to 3 terabytes SIMS Card possible. This phone is fast and once you set the security for all your apps up (took me 4 hours) then you have a usable camera phone that will meet in my case B-Roll needs. I don't plan on using any audio for any Pro Video I shoot as B-Roll just to note. Speaking of, the audio has been greatly improved with manual controls for equalization, DB levels, surround settings and more. All this with the built in LG apps. Less to say, this is a game changer phone. A flagship of flagships. Its not for everyone especially on a budget for a cheap phone. Its complex and feels like a Professional Product all around. Its lighter and thinner than my G-4 and much bigger with a whopping 6 inch oled screen. So get ready to buy all new accessories such as cases etc. This is the best phone I can find to shoot 4K Video Broadcast Quality B-Roll with very little Editing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best phone I've had yet--! Excellent sound quality. Takes great pictures. Holds a charge well (all day plus). Easy to use. Wonderful clear screen. I deliberately waited a full month before writing this review, thinking I could give a better critique after using the phone. It's everything I'd hoped it would be. Highly recomended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Near Perfect I bought this phone for the storage capacity, the music reproduction, the headphone jack, the IP68 and the MIL-STD-810g rating. Most other features work as advertised. However, the selfie camera needs development. My previous Samsung S6 took better selfies. I'm hoping a software update will improve it. Also, the network configuration works with Telus in Canada. I would give this phone a 5-star rating if the selfie camera and the color profile were improved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As described After a problem with another retailer who falsely claimed that their device would work on my network I turned to B&H who answered all my questions before purchase and quickly shipped the item which worked out with zero issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plenty of Storage Functions great. Android 8.0. LGs 2nd year promise was also approved.
