LG V30 Vs. Galaxy S8 Plus: Battle Of Beasts!
The LG V30 is the successor to the LG V20, is less a follow-up than a top-to-bottom re-imagining. The V30 has powerful specifications that are on par with the leading flagship smartphones. However, the LG's V30 competes squarely with Samsung's Galaxy S8 Plus that shares roughly the same dimensions.
The LG V30 is coming with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 and the same octa-core processor that powers the Galaxy S8 Plus. However, the V30 is about 30 percent faster than its predecessor, the Snapdragon 821. Both LG V30 and Galaxy S8 Plus have the same amount of RAM (4GB) and the same 64GB of base storage, along with a MicroSD card slot for expandable space and Bluetooth 5, support NFC. However, the Galaxy S8 also has MST technology used for Samsung Pay, as reported by GSM Arena.
The LG V30 is similar to the Galaxy S8 Plus on the inside, but it's a different story on the outside. LG V30 and S8 Plus's screens aren't all that different from each other. The former's OLED screen has a Quad HD+ resolution of 2,880 x 1,440 pixels that falls somewhat short of the Galaxy S8 Plus's 2,960 x 1,440 pixels. At 6.2 inches, the S8 Plus's screen is a little larger than the V30's, but it's also less sharp with a pixel density of 529 ppi versus the V30's 537 ppi.
LG V30 and the Galaxy S8 Plus, both smartphones have glass on the rear and front side. Both the flagships are IP68 rated to withstand water up to 1.5 meters for 30 minutes, as reported by Digital Trends. On the battery side, the V30 has a 3,300mAh battery, slightly smaller than the Galaxy S8 Plus's 3,500mAh battery.
On the camera side, LG's dual camera trend continues with the V30. The rear shooter has one 16-megapixel sensor and second 13-megapixel sensor with a wider angle, with a f/1.6 aperture, a world's first in a smartphone. However, the Galaxy S8 Plus has a single 12-megapixel sensor that hasn't changed all that much from the Galaxy S7's camera and it has f/1.7 aperture shoot great low-light photos.
At the end, there's no doubt that the LG V30 is one of the best smartphones LG has ever released. It packs powerful specs. And if LG's claims about the V30's audio are accurate then it'll sound absolutely fantastic. However, the V30 isn't perfect. It doesn't feel as great in the hand as the Galaxy S8 Plus, and it lacks Samsung's software suite. So both the handsets are best on their part and it's a tie!
