Lgv30+

Recommended Posts

    MSRP $799.00 Deal Price $399.00

LgV30+ $399 at jbhifi. Got one for myself at this price today to replace my current phone which is on its last legs. Great phone for $400.

Grabbed one early this week. It's the LG flagship. A mate of mine brokered the deal for LG to JB, swears by this phone.

Bought mine from JB about 9 months ago, also on special, mainly for the DAC.

I can 100% endorse this phone as I have had no issues and have sold my DAP in favour of this 'one stop shop'.

Buy with confidence.

Not sure where you can get covers as the shopping centre booths don't seem to carry them.

I have 'made do' without one.

A quick search on eBay showed 12000 results. Some of them will be garbage but you should find something to your taste on there

Any issues with the screen colours or the UI

I intended to buy this Whitestone Dome Glass screen protector

https://www.mobilezap.com.au/whitestone-dome-glass-lg-v30-full-cover-screen-protector-65728.

 

It was $58 last week. But now at $75 + $22 shipping, i think i'll pass!! A buddy has one for his Note 8 (also a curved screen) and it works as described.

I have a Spigen case for mine and it has worked well.

I've also tried a number of screen protector and none of them were satisfactory. So I have abandon the idea and go naked on the screen. It is a little dirty now, but I don't believe I have any significant scratches.

Yep thats what I got her - in fact I think they have another slightly more expensive one.

 

Funnily enough the reason we got this phone was not becuase of its audiophile rep, rather because she keeps dropping them (farm work). The LG seemed to have the best resistance of the non-rugged phones. Which are still miles off in functionality/reliability

Picked one up to as my iphone 7 is on the blink.

Powered up and It updated to Android 9.0 (Pie). I wasn't sure that might be available yet for this phone in Australia.

For those already with the LG V30 Plus, is it currently running Android 9 OS?

 

And is it confirmed to be getting an update to Android 10 at some point next year? Or no word yet?

 

Cheers

Bought it yesterday and it came with 7. Then updated to 8. Then straight after to 9.

Not sure it will go any higher as it is a 2017 phone. Possibly later?

10 is still very very new, but that’s good that it’s running 9.

Got my Tech21 case. It fits really well and looks great (on black phone).

 

I also installed USB Audio Player Pro. Playing music from Tidal through UAPP sounds, to my ears, better than the Tidal app.

Have been contemplating getting this phone for a while, just not sure I need it... Already have my iPhone 8+ which I use a NAOS DAC/AMP with at work for podcasts, a Sony NW-A45 & Plenue D.
