The LG V30 is the latest flagship smartphone from LG. The device was launched late last year at the IFA conference in Berlin after a lot of teasers and rumours.

The LG V30 comes with high-end specs and features like the one of a kind OLED display, 4 GB of RAM, huge 3,300 mAh battery and badass dual camera quality. You can check the full specifications of the LG V30 smartphone in this post.

The LG V30 won’t go up for sale until September 21 but till then, we would be putting the device side by side with the Samsung flagship, the Galaxy Note 8. Let’s see if the specs and features of LG V30 can win an actual head-to-head battle.

But before you go on to the specs table, let me reveal it to you that the LG V30 is a worthy competitor to Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 flagship. The smartphone duo have quite a lot in common but going by the official specifications, the Galaxy Note 8 only trumps the LG V30 by having bigger screen, bigger RAM, better front camera and a S-Pen.

The LG V30 on the other hand has better display quality (higher pixel density), better rear camera, faster processor and even a bigger storage variant (with 128 GB ROM).

Apparently, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 may not be the best smartphone released in the month of August after all as the LG V30 stands as a stiff competitor.
