LG highlights V30's video capabilities in 6 original short films


Released in the US earlier this month, the LG V30
is one of this year’s top extra-large Android smartphones, up there with the
likes of Samsung Galaxy S8+ and Galaxy Note 8, or the Google Pixel 2 XL. One of the
main features of the LG V30 is its dual rear camera – thanks to a Cine Video
mode and high-quality components, this camera is quite good at
shooting video.   

 

To illustrate what can be done with a V30, LG has partnered with
six emerging filmmakers who used the smartphone to create short films. All
the films were shot exclusively on the LG V30, being screened during …


How turn on (and make sense of) the LG V30's Quad DAC

The LG V30 may be quite a departure from its predecessors (where’s my ticker screen?), but that doesn’t mean LG’s abandoned all of its more interesting ideas.

Take, for example, the Quad DAC — it’s a feature the masses will most probably never pay much attention to (or even know is there), but can be a godsend to those of us who have been burned by other phones’ poor audio quality. And thankfully, LG has once again included the feature in its V-series flagship — but this time it’s even better.
Unfortunately, this also …

How to customize LG V30's Floating bar and make the most out of it


One of the notable new features of the LG V30 in comparison with either the V20 and the V10 is… the lack of a dedicated ticker display sitting atop the regular screen.

Probably a minor setback for the die-hard fans of LG’s specc’d-out phone lineup, the absence of this former highlight of the V-series is set to make the V30 that much more mainstream and appealing to the regular customer.

In lieu of the ticker display LG has thrown in a so-called Floating Bar feature, that nothing more than a glorified shortcut hub and app launcher. It’s not as customizable as we’d like it to …

This is LG V30's new ticker "display"

With the V30 just around the corner, LG has given us the first official look at the phone’s refreshed user interface and the successor to V10 and V20’s ticker displays.

Turns out all the rumors were true, LG is dealing away with the ticker in favor of a larger main display. And good riddance! Hey don’t get us wrong, the ticker displays on the V10 and V20 were a fun gimmick, but why waste space when you can just emulate much of the same functionality on a single OLED display? Ah, we’re sure the dedicated ticker screens have their fans but it is what it is – the ticker …

Patent might be giving us a sneak peek at LG V30's design: secondary display with a twist

Note: The image on the left is our interpretation of the patent image.

Two days ago, during Google’s I/O 2017 keynote, it was announced that the Galaxy S8/S8+ and LG’s next flagship phone will eventually support Daydream later this year. 

This was news in more than one way: firstly, it single-handedly confirmed that an LG V30 is on the way, and secondly, it heavily hinted that this one will be donning an OLED display, which is one of the hardware requirements for Daydream support. 
And it seems that right after this high-level confirmation, …
