aside from v30's bigger screen, better audio with h/phone jack, more storage, maybe better battery life, no it's not worth replacing a...

yes good call... tho i find it hugely irritating when plugged into my stereo setup and phone messages ping in. So you'll need to switch the...

Agreed, the camera is v.good if you use the manual mode, comparable to current iphone/samsung10 ...but not so much using the LG camera app...

more a sideways move, although it can be better in that you can have easily more memory than any iphone with a suitable microSD card in the...

not the same as v20, as the v30 has a hybrid slot - either microSD or SIM, not both

any of the LG phones with the great quad DAC like the V-series and recent Gs work well without need for another amp
20/06/2019 - 08:22
haven't heard the v30 but there are reviews like this... http://hifitrends.com/2018/01/13/lg-v30-the-ultimate-hi-fi-audiophile-review/

the 6.1 still better Snapdragon chip, double the built-in storage, more RAM, better screen - but no local warranty?

two best bets for sd slot and dual sim together are LG v20 (with bonus replaceable battery), and Moto G5+
