First of all, the smartphone looks absolutely gorgeous. The uses of Gorilla Glass 5 makes it scratch proof and gives it a premium feel. Glass also attracts fingerprint and we recommend a back case as the phone is bit slippery. Holding it in hands, the 158 grams V30+ is the lightest flagship smartphone available in the market. Though it is lightweight, the phone is tough as it has a military grade durability certification and a IP68 water and dust resistant.
The 6-inch 18:9 QHD P-OLED display is just as amazing as the Samsung’s AMOLED. The display is visible under direct sunlight and OLED display are good for power management. We observed colour shift issue, this exists on all P-OLED based display including Google Pixel 2 XL. Colour shift is not noticeable if you are not aware of it.
The V30+ runs on the Snapdragon 835 processor with 4GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. Using this device for a few weeks, we didn’t notice any lag and stutters even for a single time, but it does get warm while playing graphic intensive games like Asphalt 8 and Modern Combat 4. LG packs its own UI which doesn’t feel premium, but you can install 3rd party launcher as per your liking.
The main feature of LG V30+ is the Dual camera. The main sensor is a 16MP f1.6 lens with OIS, while the secondary sensor is a 13MP 120-degree wide angle lens. One of the best things about the main sensor is the capability to shoot RAW video. For their main sensor, LG used glass instead of plastic. This improves the overall quality of the pictures captured by the main sensor. The secondary lens can capture 120-degree wide field-ofview like the action camera. Coming to Front Camera, this is where LG disappoint all selfie lovers with its 5MP lens. It takes decent pictures in a bright environment but struggles in low light.

Verdict: LG has definitely made the best flagship phone that excel in camera department by being capable of capturing RAW videos and DAC support. Of course, it also has its own set of flaws including the average front camera. But, with the aggressive pricing, it is the definitely a great phone.
