The V30 is the latest flagship phone from LG, which has been struggling to compete, at least in sales, with its biggest Android rival Samsung. It is also the successor to 2016’s LG V20, which included a secondary 2.1-inch screen on top for showing app shortcuts, media controls, and more. The V30 does away with that secondary display, and instead has one nearly bezel-free 6-inch screen, using LG’s new Plastic-OLED (POLED) panel. LG offers a slide-out menu on the phone’s display (called the Floating Bar) that floats around the screen as a substitute (sort for) for folks who might miss the secondary display.
The LG V20 is still a solid choice from LG, offering a more traditional phablet display. Released in late 2016, the handset is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB RAM. Other specs include a 5.7-inch display with a unique secondary display, a 3,200 mAh battery, and dual 16/8MP rear camera setup.
The G6 is currently one of the king’s of the LG phones lineup. You get a beautiful metal and glass construction, an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance, wireless charging (in the US version only) and fast charging capabilities, an excellent dual camera setup, and gorgeous display with an unique 18:9 aspect ratio, rounded corners, and incredibly thin bezels along its sides. There is certainly some tough competition out there, but the LG G6 certainly holds its own in most departments, and is priced a touch more reasonably as well. It’s still one of the best LG phones you can buy.
