It has one of the best aesthetics and symmetry on a phone. Secondly headphone audio is on another level on the phone, courtesy QuadDAC in this phone. It also has this rare capability for native DSD playback, so you can play DSD64, DSD128 files untouched in this phone.
I have a pair of LG V30+ and they are very close to my heart.
This phone is the king. Thin, lighter, perfect screen dimension, iper resolution, great battery. But it haven't a heir
main camera do 4K@60fps, 1080p with 120/240fps, 720 with 120/240fps, front cam can do up to 4K video
This phone is quite good for me with more ram,it also a gaming phone without getting hot.it just bad the LG have stopped making phones,I love this brand.

Anonymous, 15 Jan 2023Will you recommend to buy fearly used one in this 2023?Actually wait I changed my mind, no. Anyone considering this should just get the V35. It's this but with more RAM, an upgraded SoC, and better cameras. The price difference is negligible.
Lately my LG V30 is breezing cold, only getting warm when playing some games. I noticed increase of battery life during the day, and often ended my day with 30% of battery left. Sadly the screen is not very nice as it getting older.

Still a very good phone and fantastic music player in 2023.
I will try to keep it as long as possible and maybe bought one LG G8 just in case.

$200 is probably a lot, when you can get pretty decent brand new phones around the $250 price range, just that I bought mine for about $800 at the start of 2018. On second thought, I'd probrably not recommend it. Lack of RAM makes daily multitasking slow and old OS isn't safe nor that usable, too many new apps/updates just break.

If you are okay with using custom ROMs, then you can get updates for it. Lineage 20 (Based on Android 13) is available for it now on XDA. Performance in day to day tasks is acceptable. Camera quality is good, but if you're using custom ROMs, be ready to process images by yourself since the available camera apps can't match the processing of the stock app, and for the most part, don't have god features or processing. Display is great, the phone itself is very light, build is great, size is almost perfect but charging, by modern standards, is a bit slow.
A personal huge plus is that it has a headphone jack and a SD card reader, so no compromise in audio quality and storage.
The only major concern would be battery life. These phone were made a while ago, so their batteries have degraded. If you are willing to take that compromise, given a decent price, it might be a good value.
Anonymous, 15 Jan 2023Will you recommend to buy fearly used one in this 2023?No, since it hasn't been receiving any software updates long time already => security is compromised.
Anonymous, 15 Jan 2023Will you recommend to buy fearly used one in this 2023?Depends on the condition and price. Can't give you any advice without those two factors.

My front and back glass are also smashed to pieces but the display works just fine. I wonder if P-OLEDs are more durable. Camera isn't cracked and works fine. (underwhelming by today's standards but works fine)
Fingerprint sensor also stopped working on mine like probably 2 years ago. They should've recalled them if this was an issue.
The screen on mine has zero dead pixels or burn in. Not even at the top where notification icons are displayed. I thought P-OLEDs might just be immune to burn in but I guess your situation proves otherwise.
RAM is 100% not enough.
Battery for me isn't great but I get about 4 and a half hours of screen on time in a day. The phone dies at about 2% and only starts draining a tad bit quicker than normal at around 7%.
Volume buttons work fine for me, like new. Charging port and headphone jack need to be cleaned or something because they both suck.
I've got Android 9.0 on mine. Gets the job done.
Would not recommend at $200, that's a pretty terrible price. You can get them for under a hundred on eBay.
