I don't see any better phones for that price. I have the V30+. I paid 399 at JBs. I got it for the DAC (and the space, 128GB) to use as a DAP. The screen on the V30+ is it's weak point - it's not a patch on my samsung note5, which i use as my daily phone, but i won't be buying another Note at current prices. I believe the screen, and camera, were improved over the V30+ in the V40. I didn't get the V40 only because it is a fair bit bigger than the V30+, if it where the same size, I would have paid for the V40.
