Hi there, I've very much been out of the loop over these last few years as I have run my HTC m8 from launch to now recent death.

 

Spending some time catching up again, I've become pretty interested in the LG V30+.  Great specs, official reviews, user feedback, etc.  However being bit of pleb I'm pretty confused about what's going on with LG and all the recent releases/soon to be namely LG G7, V35, Q7 and an upcoming V40?!

 

Would appreciate if someone had a few mins to explain what's what and help me get back in the game for the Nz market please so I can make an educated decision about what to do.

 

Cheers

LG has a similar tick-tock release cycle to Samsung and Huawei - the G-series and the V-series. These mirror the Galaxy S / Galaxy Note and Huawei P-series / Mate series in that the former is the slimmer fashion-forward mainstream flagship and the latter is the all-singing all-dancing big-screen powerhouse.

 

Notably LG uses 'Plus' to refer to storage rather than screen size which is a little odd.

 

The V30/V30+ is excellent and remains my favourite phone of the last 12 months for its advanced haptics, wide-angle camera, awesome battery life, and industrial design. Design has yet to be topped to my mind.

 

There are two variants of the V30 for different markets - the V30S, which is the V30 with more storage and RAM, and the V35 for AT&T/Google Fi in the US, which is the G7 in a V30 box. Neither of these are coming to AU or NZ and aren't intended for this part of the world.

 

The G7 will be launching in NZ soon. I'm daily driving one at the moment.

I am looking forward to the G7. What is the battery life like @NikT? I am a little concerned about the smallish battery size.

Thanks for that NikT, I got a little lost with the different market exclusivity.

 

I'll be keeping my eyes out on here for more G7 updates...I've seen some of your feedback on that 'G7 availability thread'  Perhaps once you've done the road test a fresh G7 thread would be ace please. 

 

Cheers
