lg’s v30 is another solid, camera-focused flagship


lg gets a fraction of the love of heavier hitters like samsung and apple, but it’s not for lack of trying. the company makes good — and in many cases envelope-pushing — phones. recall the company’s recent forays into dual-lenses and new aspect ratios. heck, the company even released a modular phone before it was cool — sure, it kind of stunk, but it was definitely interesting. maybe the company will have a little more luck this time out with the release of the v30. after all, it’s probably going to prove the biggest announcement out of ifa this year — a distinction that’s been up for grabs since samsung decided to go its own way with the galaxy note a few years back. and the v30 definitely goes a way to push smartphone imagery even beyond what many of its competitors have done in the past.
