About the Product
The Good The LG V30 almost has it all: a great camera, speedy processor, huge OLED screen, excellent battery life, waterproofing, wireless charging, microSD storage and the best headphone jack on a phone. The Bad Ergonomic quirks can make the V30 awkward to hold. You may miss some shots due to slow camera autofocus. Carrier-specific versions come with annoying bloatware and logos. The Bottom Line The LG V30 is a rock-solid alternative to Samsung’s Galaxy S8 Plus and the Google Pixel 2 XL. If it fits your hands and your photographic needs, you won't be disappointed.
The revolutionary design of the Galaxy S8 begins from the inside out. We rethought every part of the phone's layout to break through the confines of the smartphone screen. So all you see is pure content and no bezel. It's the biggest, most immersive screen on a Galaxy smartphone of this size. And it's easy to hold in one hand.

What customers say about "Display"
LG V30 H932 Dual Camera 4G LTE 64GB Silver
  • The images are by no means poor quality, especially if you know what you're doing and are comfortable using the fantastic manual mode, although the inclusion of the very useful wide angle lens does have a lot of added value as I find myself using it quite often.
  • Great smartphone - ultra light. OLED screen is awesome.
  • Great screen, fast processing, really this phone has it all.
  • The screen, whilst being OLED doesn't come close to those made by Samsung, but it still preferable to an LCD screen.
  • The screen is pretty nice but it doesn't look 100% like an OLED with blacks not being as "deep black" as Samsungs.
Samsung Galaxy S8 64GB Unlocked Phone - International Version (Midnight Black)
  • The S8 has the best display on the market. The phone is lightweight and powerful. Gaming and video playback are very smooth
  • Awesome display and smooth interface
  • I just bought a phone and first thing i liked was display with edge and sharp colors! Also when you watch videos on youtube, video will take full screen on phone and show you more view!
  • The edge to edge display further enhances the screen. Perhaps the best feature of the phone
  • Love the edge display and how it works very well with the phone both locked and unlocked.

What customers say about "Processor"
LG V30 H932 Dual Camera 4G LTE 64GB Silver
  • Very little bloatware, great performance. I'm writing this review after trying it for about 4 months and I still love it as much as I did on day 1.
  • Otherwise - excellent smartphone - better than the preceding flagships of both G and V series.
  • Got it last week and i test it by myself this phone is amazing peace of art the look the design the feel in the hand the performance gamings snaping listen to music this is the best phone i ever owned
Samsung Galaxy S8 64GB Unlocked Phone - International Version (Midnight Black)
  • Love processor speed, resolution and everything in general.
  • The graphic is amazing and processor of the phone is fast
  • It has fast ram that makes it efficient to run many apps at the same time. It also has enough memory to download several apps.
  • Zero lag due to 4gb Ram and QS835 processor. Definitely the best video quality in the market right now.
  • The processor is nice and fast, and I feel that the storage space is adequate. Should storage ever become an issue it's upgrade-able with Samsung bringing back the SD mini card holder again!

What customers say about "Camera"
LG V30 H932 Dual Camera 4G LTE 64GB Silver
  • The camera takes really nice pictures, especially with the ability to fit more things in the frame using the second camera.
  • There video capturing capabilities are some of the best in any phone out there, however the only possible the quality of photos, at least when it comes to competing with the latest flagships.
  • The camera hardware is good, the software, not so much. Installing the Pixel camera app improves photos markedly.
  • The camera is pretty impressive yet lacks low light quality, guess Samsung and HTC spoiled me with high quality low light pics.
  • I love the pro camera features, and over all, the size of the V30 is comparable to my previous Turbo 2 by Motorola.
Samsung Galaxy S8 64GB Unlocked Phone - International Version (Midnight Black)
  • There are so many jokes about an android Camera compared to an iPhone but with this invention the joke is over. Regardless what any specs or friend may suggest the Samsung s8 camera shows way more detail than the iPhone 7 and it has a way better flash
  • The camera is a lot better than s7 edge. It is a lot faster too.
  • Great camera with super class picture and nice design. Easy to handle , fast processing
  • Have the best camera ever. Pictures are stunning.
  • The S8 has an awesome camera, very easy to use. Screen is difficult to see in sunlight but picture quality is wonderful.

What customers say about "Features"
LG V30 H932 Dual Camera 4G LTE 64GB Silver
  • The software is nice and has good tips, although I wish they could be permanently dismissed. It also has a high quality audio DAC used when listening with headphones.
  • The LG V30 is a fantastic phone for anyone who wants a top knotch performer in every regard, unquestionably the best quality of sound, thanks to the built-in quad DAC.
  • The phone was not fully unlocked for cricket, yet the ad claimed it was. It was a nice phone and my husband wanted to keep it if it would have worked with our carrier.
  • The audio is super impressive and it is definitely a good selling point for this phone.
Samsung Galaxy S8 64GB Unlocked Phone - International Version (Midnight Black)
  • Great phone. Love the iris scanner. Not impressed by location of the finger print scanner and the curve of the phones edges.
  • Excellent smartphone, with ip68 protocol for water issues
  • Great Phone, Samsung has a lot of great features especially their Samsung pay feature.
  • I love the personal assistant "Bixby", the camera is fantastic, and the Samsung health feature lets me record my vitals and keep track of eating and sleeping habits.
  • I dont like how the speaker sounds. It´s a poor mono speaker.
  • It's a great phone, but wish Samsung would allow this phone to have the dual SIM card feature for their US version.

What customers say about "Power"
LG V30 H932 Dual Camera 4G LTE 64GB Silver
  • The battery life gets me 3.5 - 4 hours of screen on time. I don't worry about how much I have left.
  • Good phone. I have had no issues with it. I love the battery life!
  • Battery is the best out there....
  • Only the battery life is not that long. It's OK if one puts it on battery saver. Overall it's very good phone and as promised it was brand new. Thank you
Samsung Galaxy S8 64GB Unlocked Phone - International Version (Midnight Black)
  • This is my first Samsung phone. I love it. The display is crystal clear. One full charge of battery lasted for > 24hrs.
  • I particularly like the long battery life and the cordless charger.
  • The other things are perfect but my only issue is regarding to the battery performance and it's not as I saw from the reviews and some YouTubes
  • The only weakness I can find from S8 is the battery life. It cannot last for one whole day without charging. But the functionality is really much more powerful compared with iphone.
