LG V30 Evaluation: OLED controversy is great but the phone class sound quality excellent

Posted on

In 2017, in addition to Apple’s 10 anniversary edition of the iphone x, LG V30 can be said to be another surprise for the handset market in the second half of this year. Looking back at last year’s poor performance, this year’s LG show signs of improvement. So, what is the performance of V30 in the market since its official release in Berlin, Germany?

LG V30 Evaluation: OLED controversy is great but the phone class sound quality excellent

Some people think that LG’s smartphone is always in some way to follow the footsteps of Samsung. As a direct competitor from the same country, LG is in the wrong track of development. Overall, Samsung’s OLED display, camera features are far ahead of LG. Competitiveness is not very strong compared to Samsung.
The Android Police platform, which specialises in Android news, is a disparaging comment for LG V30. While praising the advantages of its headphone and oversized aperture, it also points out some of LG’s flaws–oled screen, bloated software and medium battery life, and so on.
In fact, the tiniest borders of many phones look similar, but to some extent, V30 gets the closest look to the iphone x, and its symmetry and softness are good. It is even thought that V30 looks more appealing than a mobile phone like millet mi Mix 2.
As for the camera, I have to compliment LG for providing a very popular camera experience for its users. Not to mention, LG V30 also continues the dual-camera configuration, loaded with a 16 million megapixel standard lens, and has a F1.6 large aperture and 71 degrees view, this is the current smartphone the maximum aperture value!
The most controversial aspect of V30 is undoubtedly the screen. Although the recently produced V30 phones seem to have little or no problems with banded or black spots, it seems to me that LG does have a problem with OLED panel production. Of course, when it comes to LG V3 ‘s screen, we have to start with Google’s Pixel 2 XL. Both OLED screens have a large defect-the blue shift problem. This, LG V30 is worse than Google Pixel 2 xl.
In addition, LG V30 bloated software and general battery life is also very annoying.


In addition to the full screen there is also a highlight LG V30 hands-on experience

August 31, LG officially released a new V-series New machine–lg V30, with the news of the previous report, the machine with a comprehensive screen of the face of LG’s mobile phone products added a new flagship, may wish to experience it.
LG V30, as a brand new full screen flagship, canceled the design of a secondary screen on the previous product. With a 6-inch OLED screen, the resolution is 2880*1440 and the official data screen accounts for 82%. Slightly different from Samsung’s main push model, the V30DE screen has a height-width ratio of 18:9 and supports HDR10. When the screen is off, the power consumption is very low compared to the interest screen.

Because the frontal screen is relatively high, the machine uses the back-fingerprint identification, the back edge also has a smooth transition treatment. Rear 16 million pixel (F 1.6) + 13 million pixel (wide angle) dual camera combination. Front 5 million megapixel camera, compared to the current mainstream Android products in pixels lower. But V30 ‘s post-double shot is still lg enough to be proud of, and the results are excellent. The second biggest bright spot of the machine is to become the first f/1.6 large aperture mobile phone, Crystal clear lens glass than plastic in color, into the light ascend.
Configuration, V30 with snapdragon 835 mobile platform, supplemented by 4GB lpddr4x running memory. Equipped with 3300mAh battery, support fast charging and wireless charge, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC.


LG V30 Scratch Resistance test hardness yes, but fingerprint identification is affected

Posted on

After testing, LG V30 front and back of the Gorilla Glass scratch-resistant effect is good, basically will not leave too obvious traces. But after the fingerprint identification sensor on the back has been crossed, the ability to identify is beginning to be affected. But in daily life, we rarely face such rigorous tests directly. After all, no one will put a razor blade in a backpack, or be so “poisonous” to a cellphone.

V30 is the first time that LG has used OLED material panels instead of conventional LCD panels. Although OLED displays have many advantages in terms of effect, the screen leaves a permanent white area after burning with a lighter. But still that sentence, there should be no one who uses a lighter to the V30 screen roast, especially for 10 consecutive seconds of high-temperature burning, so V30 users do not worry too much, everything is just testing.
Finally, the bending test, any smartphone that uses a glass shell is “fragile”, but in a sense they are more durable than the metal-shell phones. At least from LG V30. The use of plastic fillers, whether glass or bottom metal, gives V30 a very good performance in bending tests.
From this test, LG V30 is more durable and reliable, similar to the previous generation of LG G6. Oddly enough, V30 ‘s fingerprint identification module seems to be different from everyone else’s. All of the models previously tested although the sensor surface was scratched, but did not affect the fingerprint identification of the certainty, but only V30 was affected by this. It seems that you really need to pay attention after you start V30.

Like its mobile name “aka”, LG AKA is itself a very special smartphone that “blinks”. In fact, “Blink” is a virtual “binocular” on its phone screen, as shown in the picture, is very special. Of course, in addition to its own visual effects, its two “eyes” also have the function of calling reminders and message notifications.

Also, as you can see, LG aka has a proprietary phone cover and is free to disassemble. However, when the phone covers the cover, aka can Achieve “blink” effect. Of course, this cover can also provide a certain amount of protection for LG AKA mobile phones.
In fact, LG aka has a total of four versions and is distinguished by color: yellow, white, black, and pink. Different versions of LG AKA are given different themes, as shown in the figure. It is worth mentioning that when the user wants to replace AKA’s theme, just replace the phone’s cover plate.

It is equipped with a 5.0-inch HD screen, 1.2GHz Four-core processors, and a 8 million megapixel main camera, and the hardware configuration belongs to the current low-end level. Of course, for ordinary users, especially women, child users, such a configuration can be sufficient to meet their day-to-day needs of many applications.

Appearance, LG G4 licensed version continued the simple design, the fuselage fillet radian smaller, and then make the whole line more hale, there is a certain degree of identification.
LG G4 Licensed version of the use of thin micro-bending design, the fuselage is slightly curved, and LG G Flex is somewhat similar, more special, coupled with the fuselage back arc over natural, greatly improving the comfort of the phone grip. In particular, this phone screen is also curved, and the screen border is higher than the screen on the arc surface, in the mobile phone in front of the fall can play a certain protection, embodies the practicality of the design.

This mobile phone is equipped with a 8 million megapixel front camera, compared to the previous LG G3 (note: 2.1 million pixel front) to enhance the obvious, making the phone’s self-portrait effect clearer.

In the case of LG Electronic hope in the domestic market, LG G4 global sales can reach 12 million units, I hold a wait-and-see attitude.

Of course, from the recent domestic conference, LG Electronics highlights the performance of LG G4 Photography. In fact, this mobile phone camera configuration excellent, reached the current high level, in the previous machine evaluation we also have introduced. Today, the author will pass a number of real proofs, so that we have more understanding of the imaging effect of LG G4.
As far as the parameters are concerned, LG G4 carries a 8 million-megapixel front-facing camera and a 16 million-megapixel main camera, with a significant increase in both front and rear dual cameras compared to LG G3 (Note: 2.1 million + 13 million), and also supports laser autofocus.

Xiaolong 808 processor + fingerprint identification, Nexus, 5X appreciation

Google launched a new Nexus mobile phone, and the two – Nexus, 6P and Nexus 5X. Among them, the former OEM by HUAWEI, the latter by Google Nexus mobile phone loyal partner LG electronic foundry, the machine is therefore called LG Nexus 5X.

Familiar with Google Nexus mobile phone friends are clear, in the past, Google will only launch a Nexus mobile phone every year, but this year it is two! Perhaps this is due to the influence of Samsung and apple. Like iPhone, 6S, Plus, and iPhone 6S, Google, Nexus, 6P, and Nexus 5X are also big, small, and theoretically able to meet the needs of different users.
In terms of design, Google Nexus 5X (LG Nexus 5X) overall design is relatively simple and routine, compared to last year’s Nexus 6 (Note: Motorola foundry), the appearance is not much bright spot. In fact, looking back at the foundry manufacturer – LG’s mobile phone, its design highlights itself is rather scarce. The results are not unexpected.As a small size of two Nexus in the mobile phone, the Google Nexus 5X (LG Nexus 5X) the screen size is only 5.2 inches, compared to before the Nexus 6 decreased, and the screen resolution is 1080p (1080 x 1920 pixels) level, so we can not see the location of the machine.
In terms of body material, the Google Nexus 5X (LG Nexus 5X) is the plastic body. On this point, the back of the fuselage is quite clear. Some might say, “why not adopt a mainstream metal body, even a metal border?” In my opinion, this is still related to the positioning and cost of LG Nexus 5X.
Of course, as you can see, the Google Nexus 5X (LG Nexus 5X) back is “double ring” shape, one for fingerprint identification module, and the other is the main camera. Its camera for the bulge design, like volcanic crater, people have to think of the classic model HTC One X. In the “not Jitu” tide, in the face of reverse design like this, I can only oh.
As for the concern of the processor configuration of all, Google Nexus 5X (LG Nexus 5X) equipped with a Qualcomm (Qualcomm Corp) 808 Xiaolong six processor, 6P slightly inferior compared to Nexus. At the same time, it is equipped with 2GB, RAM and 16GB/32GB body memory, with the year’s Nexus 5 in general, slightly outdated.
