A six-inch OLED display and face recognition are the advantages with which the Korean manufacturer promotes its latest design. The cherry on the cake is the price. The phone can be purchased for just over 2000 PLN. Is there a hook in this? You'll see in the following mini-review.
LG V30 smartphone displays made with P-OLED technology are a treat primarily for players and media fans. This image quality is simply impossible to fake. Until now, LG has been lagging behind Samsung and Sony, which have been investing in Super AMOLED and Triluminos Display technologies for years. The V30 has changed everything. The six-inch display has a screen area of almost 93 cm2 and can display graphics with a resolution of 1440 x 2880 pixels. Always-on display, a feature known from Samsung products, may appeal to those who like it when the clock on the screen never goes out. Associations with Samsung phones are inevitable when you consider the curved edges of the phone, which is made possible by P-OLED technology.
The LGV30, as befits a high-end phone, looks elegant. This is facilitated by the aluminium frame and glass panels used by the designers. This is not new on the market of flagship smartphones. It may be astonishing, however, that colour changes the character of the whole thing so much. Customers can choose from five colour variants: Aurora Black, Cloud Silver, Moroccan Blue, Lavender Violet and RaspberryRose. The first two are found in most of the competing brands, while blue, violet and - to a slightly lesser extent - pink give the impression of freshness of style.
Excellent smooth running
Android phones have it in common that they like to hang up - especially if the application has more than standard hardware requirements. In the case of the LG V30, however, we should not expect problems with the speed of the phone. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 is known for its reliability, and the eight cores that determine its power (4x2.45 GHz Kryo and 4x1.9 GHz Kryo) are a guarantee of liquidity. The 4 GB of memory used in this model is also enough for everyone.
Looking closely at this construction, it is difficult to point out its weaknesses. The dual rear (16 and 13 MP) and front (5MP) cameras are robust. The phone also has all the functions needed for everyday use: fingerprint reader (located at the back), gyroscope and handling of contactless payments. The only problem can be the price. Though it doesn't seem exotic compared to other flagers, it could always be lower. However, cheaper phones don't have all the things that LG offers us. The V30 is therefore a proposal for those who value classroom equipment but do not like to overpay.
