Jumped to the sea with it in my pocket. It still survived few hours just enough for me to back up the data. Then the screen died out...Best phone, LG V30 you can rest now
joe nodden, 06 Nov 2023Scratch that, it lived. Got it to turn on after a couple days by holding down the volume down ... moreHilarious to read and I can relate :)
I dipped in a lake too once to try underground photography, the speaker sound got reduced and I switched it off and after 2 hours It was normal. 😃
And this might sound silly too, in Covid times someone infected touched my mobile and I washed it with soap and water and it was normal again 🤪

Got it to turn on after a couple days by holding down the volume down and power buttons. Screen didn't register touches at first, and then it turned back off again without me being able to turn it back on. But another day or so went by and I got it to turn on again. This time there were green lines to the left of the display but it registers touches and it hasn't died again.
Phone just refuses to die. I've dropped it probably literally hundreds of times onto asphalt already, (95% of those times being without a case) and I've ran it over with a golf cart.
I called the military grade rating a gimmick at first but I think it's proven otherwise. 😅

Took it out and it actually booted up right after. Booting it up probably wasn't the best decision because I checked again a few minutes later and it appeared to be dead. It's in rice right now, though I doubt that's gonna do anything.

hi. i have this phone as my 2nd phone, my younger brother gave it to me as it only has android 8, most apps he uses especially banking app require android 9+.
phone is docomo version, L-01K 4/128 and i cant find anywhere on how to upgrade it to official android 9. anyone can help me find the stock android 9 rom for L-01K?
I've had this phone since 2017 and couldn't be happier. I usually take it with me to the mountains and it has taken a lot of hits. I have never seen a better phone. Now I installed linageos to be able to have the latest android. I think I have a phone for a few more years.
This phone has been insane value for me, as I've used it and abused it for more than 6 years. It still works perfectly, except for the diminishing battery life of course. If it wasn't for the awful front cam (which I rarely use to be honest) and the dying battery, and some rare instances where I feel the amount of RAM is falling a bit on the short side, I think I'd use it for another 6 years.
I'd bought it for the awesome DAC in it back in the day, and I made good use of it for 3-4 years with some really high-end earphones and headphones. Now that I'm on the bandwagon of TWS earphones, the LDAC codec keeps serving me well too.
But the true surprise has been the screen itself. Imagine an OLED phone used for 6 years with at least 4-5 SOT every single day, and it's not even slightly burned-in.
PAB 65, 30 Jul 2023hi , thank you for youe valuable info as i am buy ,now in 2023 a lg30 instead of more common ... moreYou are correct. Above 50 ohms you get a lot of driving force from the QuadDAC. My LG V30+ are B&O tuned and has a very transparent see through sound signature. Whereas my LG G8X QuadDAC is tuned by Meridian audio and is a more lush sound signature. Both sounds incredible and shows different facets of the same music.

thank you for youe valuable info as i am buy ,now in 2023 a lg30 instead of more common v40 which ha better LCD but i really don't care as i have a Samsung S10 and ampflied with a powerful (which i recommend a lot as it is very powerful ,half size of the btr5 , no BT no controls but raw power and a great app for clock control ,filters ,not eq ,doesn' need it ,just stick on the back of my mobile's cover and connect though a small cable usb c ).
ALL is good ,quality (non MQA but not a problem ) but i want an LG so for 150$ i can get a refurb lg g7 or LG v30 and decided to go for L30 . Iuse good iems ,but i know the quad dac on LG activate over 50 OR 75 ohms (i have UAPP too) so i am buyng a dunu 75ohms adapter to trick the dac as it see an high impendeance headphone and release the quad dac current . Am i correct or am i dreaming?
I would appreciate a lot , CHEERS

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.

Which custom rom you installed and version?

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.
