LG V30 Review Results

The LG V30 is set to release October 20th in Canada. With the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone 8 being released and announced not too long ago, how will LG’s response stack up to the competition? The LG V30 boasts a 6-inch OLED display making for a nice a compact 18:9 FullVision display. No one likes straight edges, right? Right. The LG V30 has tempered glass front and back and curved edges for seamless transition. The all glass exterior allows for a sleek and polished look as well as reducing the phones mass.
