  • 1Description

With the V30S ThinQ 128GB Smartphone from LG, you can take photos and video with cinematic results. They support still photo resolutions up to 4656 x 3492, up to 4K video, and 10-bit HDR, for improved color accuracy and contrast. The 16MP standard angle camera also features a glass lens, which is designed to increase sharpness and color. The 13MP camera features a 120-degree, wide angle lens that captures more of the world around you.

The dual-rear cameras are joined by a 5MP front-facing camera. You can use it to capture selfie pics or 1080p videos. Switch from the 80-degree standard field-of-view, to a 90-degree wide-angle, which lets more friends into the shot. Selfie Light makes sure that your pics are well-lit, and Beauty Shot softens your facial features to help you look your best.

The 6.0" QHD+ FullVision display features OLED and HDR10 technology for deep blacks and stunning contrast when viewing movies, TV shows, mobile games, or your own pictures and video creations. The display has a cinematic 18:9 aspect ratio, and the always-on mode lets you conveniently see the date, time, and notifications when the screen is sleeping. Further customize your display with a moveable/collapsible toolbar for app shortcuts and call notifications.

Running the Android 8.0 Oreo operating system, this phone is powered by an Octa-Core processor (4 x 2.45 GHz and 4 x 1.9 GHz Kryo) and 6GB of RAM. You can store your apps, 4K videos, and HDR10 snapshots on 128GB of built-in storage, which can be expanded via an (optional) microSD card up to 2TB in size.

Android 8.0 Oreo
The Android operating system integrates heavily with Google's services. Using the card-based Google Now, Android quickly surfaces information for you whenever you need it, powered by the same Knowledge Engine that runs Google's web search. It's a personalized and customizable OS, allowing you to add your favorite apps or widgets to your home screen. You can even download new themes using the Google Play Store, which offers access to millions of apps, games, books, music, movies, and more. Android 8.0 Oreo adds major productivity and security capabilities to the operating system. They've introduced Google Play Protect, which scans apps on your phone to detect harmful behavior. With the touch of the Home button, continue to work in apps while watching active videos in Picture-in-Picture mode. Other features include, faster boot speed, automatically turning on Wi-Fi when near saved networks, limiting background activity for little used apps, notification snoozing, smart text selection, and more.
GSM + CDMA / 4G LTE Wireless Connectivity

LTE is an advanced cellular network data protocol capable of data speeds so fast that they compete with wired broadband Internet providers. With an LTE connection, this phone should have no problem streaming HD video, downloading apps, uploading photos, or anything else that requires a high-speed data connection. The phone is also backwards compatible with 3G and 2G data for instances when you can't get LTE. In addition to cellular wireless, this phone also features Bluetooth, NFC, and Wi-Fi connectivity.

Note: Not compatible with all cellular networks. Please make sure your provider uses a frequency or band that this phone supports, and that they will allow you to used carrier unlocked phones. You can check which bands this phone works within the Specifications.

Durable Design
LG has constructed the V30S to be able to withstand the elements and survive the damage that can come from everyday use. The entire phone is IP68 rated for dust- and water-resistance, as well as passing MIL-STD-810G testing for shock-resistance. The sides of the phone are made from aluminum, and the front and back are encased in Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

Even the rear cameras and CPU have their own protection. The rear cameras are protected by Gorilla Glass 4, and the heat pipe on the CPU absorbs and expels heat to minimize overheating.

    LG US998R reviews

    V30S ThinQ 128GB Smartphone (Unlocked, Glossy Moroccan Blue) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great phone but Titan Blue Great phone, scores well on Geekbench4. The "ThinQ" part with the Computer Vision, identifying products or objects in camera view still seems very premature. It's often wrong or can't find anything. Also, B&H says Moroccan Blue, but what you get is called Titan Blue and it even looks fairly different shade than how it appears here.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not much that could make this better Despite last-gen CPU, this phone is quick, has 128GB of storage (expandable via MicroSD), 6GB or RAM, it's IP68 water-resistant (read: submerged down to 5ft for up to 30mins), has a great OLDED display, with plenty of brightness, and a mediocre camera (despite being able to put it into manual and other creative modes). The back color is brilliant. The speaker is fine for speakerphone, it doesn't hold up to music, obviously. I'm glad they put it on the bottom and didn't try to put stereo speakers on the front using up real estate. The phone just plain looks great with its screen slightly wrapping around the sides ("3D"). When using the headphone jack for music it switches to a dedicated DAC to give the music every possible chance of sounding good (sorry, most streaming services aren't going to do this justice). If you're looking for the latest processor or gimmick, this is not the phone for you, but if you need a solid performer that fits well in-hand, without much bloatware, step on up and grab this v30s.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice phone wirh wide camera The phone looks and feel realy good, a little slipery with out any cover. The camera works great realy nice to have option to taka such a wide photos. The haedphone works great, no B&O, but are nice built and sounds good. The battery last me now the whole day with out charging, and I use it a lot during the day. I have bluetooth headset and smartwach connected all day and still 20% left af battery when going to bed. This floating bar is a great feature, some thing U have to get used to.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stylist Is lightweight and the screen resolution is good. So far so good, I like it.
    Date published: 2018-06-07
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good phone/poor service from FedEx & LG I recently got the V30S to replace an aging ZTE Axon 7 as it is getting a little temperamental and has accumulated too many security issues. The LG phone is only slightly wider and taller than the Axon but has a much bigger screen and is notably lighter. The camera is far superior and I have had a chance to take some surprisingly detailed shots with highlights and shadows that had more information than expected. Movies look nice too. On the negative side, FedEx royally screwed up the express delivery and was completely apathetic about it. They lied several times and actually disconnected me on 4 calls. I will NEVER trust FedEx again! Almost as bad, it has taken 2 full weeks, 9 emails and 21 attempts to enter my info into LG's website to finally get my 2-year registration confirmation! Oh, and it had to be sent manually by a rep after yet another prompt from me. All because LG didn't enter the information into their system before shipping the phone. This sort of behavior simply does NOT instill confidence in LG, not that any of the reps who replied to me were rude or unhelpful; they are just hobbled by an inefficient company. Between the long delay in receiving the phone and LG's corporate incompetence, I have to knock 1.5 stars off for sheer frustration, making this a 3.25 purchase. PROS: -Good price to feature/build ratio -Long battery life. The battery is at 50-80% when I go to bed compared to 20-60% with the Axon 7 -Bright, easy to read the screen with balanced color -Excellent cameras, though LG's native camera app isn't that great IMO -Fantastic sound! FLAWLESS with wired headphones -IP68 certified -T-Mobile bands 66 AND 71 (pretty much every band in the US) -6GB RAM makes it very responsive -128GB internal storage plus SD card is very welcome (I own a TONS of music and take lots of pictures) -Cellular, WiFi, and Bluetooth radios work great -2 years warranty total (see CONS) -Screen edges are comfortably curved but there is no phantom touch like on Samsung S8 and S9 -The screen can be custom color corrected natively (I'm a photographer, I care!) -The fingerprint sensor is responsive and well placed -Charges fast either wired or wirelessly -Apps are well behaved (Except Engadget, but it crashes on all my Androids) -I love the Moroccan Blue finish! -Fewer security risks than Chinese made phones like ZTE or Huawei -I surprisingly like the always on screen and it doesn't seem to affect the battery life much -Second-year warranty is free (but does need to be registered) -I had no problem finding a case and screen protector that fit perfectly CONS: -Glass backs make me nervous even with a case -No power button on the side (fingerprint sensor or Knock Knock) -No Stereo speakers -LG's skin is mediocre and Nova Launcher doesn't work properly -Despite a bright screen, it's still difficult to read in direct sun -Warranty does not cover drops or spills. Yes that means that LG don't actually guarantee their IP68 rating
