LG V30 in hands-on: Slim 6-inch smartphone has no second display more

Thursday, August 31st, 2017 | Gadgets

The V30 has a 6 inch OLED display with a high resolution of 2,880 x 1,440 pixels and presents content accordingly sharp. The smartphone supports Google's Daydream. Despite the comparatively large 6-inch display, the device can be used comparatively well. Because the display has a 2: 1 ratio, so it is optimized to a narrow design.

LG has waived the V30 on the so far second display. We can do without this well, we could not win much in practice. Much more useful is the always-on function of the display. It displays status information and notifications without unlocking the smartphone. In addition, the music playback can also be paused.
Floating Bar as a replacement for second display
In addition, there is a so-called floating bar for the missing second display. This is a fade-out operating area. When the function is active, a dot appears on the display, which can be moved. The control bar opens with a wipe to the point to call up additional functions. At the first try the concept could not convince us, somehow the activation point was always disturbing in the way.

On the rear of the V30, there is a dual camera with a 16 megapixel lens with a comparatively wide aperture of f1.6 as well as a 13 megapixel lens for wide angle shooting with an aperture of f1.9. The wide angle camera should have less distortions at the edge of the picture than the camera in the V20, the predecessor model. Thanks to the large aperture openings, even good shooting conditions should be possible under adverse light conditions.

LG relies on glass lenses, which should not scratch and clear images promise. In the dual camera technology LG uses the previous concept from normal camera and special wide-angle camera. On the front is a 5-megapixel wide-angle camera.
Swing zoom in the camera app
With the V30, LG attaches particular importance to special video functions. Thus, the user can realize a swing zoom. To do this, the Cine mode must be active, then the PanZoom function can be activated. The user can tap on an image area, and a zoom control then zooms to this area. A very practical function.
We found it a pity, however, that the zoom control must always be held. It would be more practical, we could set the end zoom and everything else would be recorded accordingly. This increases the risk of the smartphone moving and causing jittery shots.
But also with other functions wants the V30 kinoreife recordings.
