It’s possible you’ll not understand it, however 1 out of each 10 individuals you cross by on the road right now in all probability have a smartphone made by LG. Not like Samsung and Apple, LG is not any grasp at advertising and marketing. For one, I’ve by no means heard a great motive why LG named its cellphone the V30. It‘s an odd moniker that doesn’t precisely seize your consideration. However that’s simply the way it goes with LG—it may make the very best gadget on the earth, and fail to call it.

The V30 isn’t more likely to leap out at you on a crowded retailer shelf, nevertheless it’s secretly top-of-the-line Android telephones you should buy.

Two years in the past, LG’s V10 dared to look completely different. It had a rubber again and massive steel edges, designed to assist it stand up to drops like no one’s enterprise. It was cumbersome, however you didn’t want a case for it in any respect—a novel thought on this period of fragile telephones. The V30 is much extra desperate to mix in. It’s coated in glass on the back and front—glass with curved edges, which is simply so 2017—and a fantastic high-resolution (2,880 x 1,440 pixel) OLED display screen that covers most of its face.

I’d say that an edge-to-edge display screen is so 2017 too, besides LG was one of many first cellphone makers to shrink its bezels and put its dwelling button on the again. Shined up, anodized steel covers the perimeters, which is meant to assist the cellphone take a tumble, however with all this glass, pray you don’t drop it. Until you’re standing subsequent to a pool, as a result of it’s waterproof (IP68).
