Poll: What is LG's best device of the year: G6 or V30?

The LG V30 was just presented at IFA 2017. It's got a gorgeous design and very attractive specs, too. It's a huge improvement over the V20. It might even be better than the G6. It may just be the best smartphone of the year from LG. What do you think?

LG introduced a unique display ratio with the G6, plus it has a lot of positive attributes like wireless charging in the US, water resistance, a beautiful design with glass on the back. It had some drawbacks though, like just 32 GB of internal storage, no removable battery, no Quad DAC on the US version, and above all it came with a high end price tag in spite of using last year's processor.

These let downs from the G6 were mostly remedied with the LG V30, plus it's also a huge improvement over its predecessor, the V20. The LG V30 is a smartphone with amazing looks, an 18:9 display and compelling features. It has 64 GB internal storage, the latest Snapdragon 835 processor, and a Quad DAC for audiophiles worldwide. It does away with the second screen, replacing it with a Floating Bar, and the dual camera has two focal lengths for great photos.

    I'm going with the V30 here, it doesn't suffer from the same degree of geographical crippling as the G6, and I like what it has to offer better than the G6, anyway.

    Easily the V20 Dual SIM. Other than water resistance, lack of stylus/pkb, it checks almost every box. And the price is under $400! I have 2 Zerolemon batteries in rotation for constant battery...

    The V30 hits all the right buttons for me at this time. I'm over the removable battery since that's becoming a thing of the past. I carry portable battery power banks and don't see that as an issue, for me at least. I'm waiting for the reviews but can say I'm impressed with the hands on reviews I've seen so far. The V30 is on my short list along with the G6 (which my son got recently to replace his failing G3 & he loves it).

    Either one is fine as long as it doesn't bootloop like my old LG G4!

      I have one of those bootlooped G4's in the recycle box since it happened out of warranty (which included the 18 month extended warranty). But that's why LG is including a two year warranty on the G6 and I'm curious if they'll offer it on the V30.

    Neither the V20 is the best LG phone. All glass construction, and non removable battery the V30 is a downgrade

    The LG V series are probably going to be one of the best phone this year!
