If you have read my blogs before you will know I need a good camera on my phone, since I am too lazy to carry around 2 devices.

One of the best things about the holiday season are the terrific deals that can be found on electronics. In the world of phones, it is also the time of year when companies roll out their flagship devices.

 

I have been fortunate this year to have tried several and I can say for sure that the LG V30+ has got to be one of the best devices I have tried. Beautiful design, water resistance, amazing camera and brilliant screen are just a few of my favorite features.

 

This is a hypercompetitive market to get your valued business for the manufactures and for the carriers which makes for a win-win for the consumers.

 

As of right now (November 2017), there is an amazing promotion from LG as an incentive. They are offering an up to $400 rebate reward if you purchase the V30 + from Sprint and then purchase another LG product.

Would you like $400 off a new LG TV? How about taking getting an amazing new refrigerator from LG and $400 back? Just buy any LG product, send in your proof of purchase and a few weeks later you will get a Visa gift card to pay you back. Now that is a wonderful deal and here are the details. Of course, there is responsibility on your part as you have to provide proof of purchase for the V30+, proof of purchase for your LG product and you have to send all of this information in. A bit of a hassle yes but still an amazing offer. You must hurry as this super deal ends very soon. Follow the LG link for specifics. 

 

Sprint, of course, has some love to throw in as well with a two for one device deal, clean slate promotion and free Hulu on the Unlimited Freedom plan.

 

These offers change frequently so be sure and check sprint.com for the most current best deal.

The LG X-Charge is a great phone, maintaining the quality LG is known for. Not all the bells and whistles of the more expensive LG lineup but most of them and a really great price point.

11-21-2017 12-11-44 PM.png

 

Let’s take a look at some of the basic features.

First this DOES NOT use a Type C USB cable. So if your last phone did, then you will want to make sure you get an extra cable to put in the car, briefcase, backpack and so on to replace the ones you have. You don’t want to get on the road for the holidays and suddenly realize the cable in your car doesn’t work with your new phone and have to pull over and dig one out of a suitcase or realize you left it plugged in at home and have to buy another one. Especially if you are using Google maps on your phone to get to where you are going.

Quick travel tip: I always take screenshots of the directions list when I start out, just in case I get into an area where there isn’t a signal anymore. Seems to always happen to me when I need to know where to turn. With the LGX Charge it is super easy. Power+Volume down. There are other ways but this is pretty easy to remember.  Make sure the screenshot is saved to your phone and not a cloud. Otherwise it didn’t do you any good if you don’t have a signal. Most save to the Gallery, Screenshots folder.  A quick way to get to screen shots is via your notifications dropdown.  

Dimensions: 6.09" (H) x 3.08" (W) x 0.33" (D); Weight- 5.79 oz. - Fits in the hand nicely and doesn’t feel cheap.

Screen Size: 5.5 inches – great size and HD clarity

Screen Resolution: 1,280 x 720 pixels

Battery Capacity: 4,500 mAh (non-removable) – I can go two days without charging. It does make the phone a little bit heavier than some but it’s worth it. DO NOT try to remove the battery! It does not come out.

Camera Resolution: 13 MP up to 4x zoom – The MPs compare to the more expensive phones and if you’re looking at something to take good pictures without all the extra cost, this is it. It features low light and has a Rear Camera Resolution of up to 4160 x 3120 pixels and shoots in HDR, Burst Shots and a way to share instantly on social media. That’s perfect if you are just taking casual pictures of life.

5 MP Front-Facing Camera with Front-Facing Flash low-light lens: Take all of the fabulous selfies you want with a flash/ selfie light to help out. Not to mention that you can soften those lovely like lines you have collected over the years.  Smiley Wink Front Camera Resolutions: Up to 2560 x 1920 pixel

Video Recording Resolution: Up to FHD at 30 FPS. Say what??? This is what that means. FHD stands for Full High Definition and FPS is Frames per Second. This means you will be happy with the result. This phone also has a way to snap photos of frames while recording and you can use Geotagging to tag your location for the video, unless you aren’t supposed to be there, then you can turn that off. Shhhh, parents this is a great feature for figuring out where the kiddos actually are. Smiley Wink
Just a bit of Trivia for you. The human eye cannot view more than 30 FPS, so anything above 30 is the same as looking at 30. There are some things out there advertised as 60 FPS, but it isn’t any better. Maybe give it a few years and they’ll figure out a contact lens that makes it possible, you never know.

Processor: MediaTek MT6750 1.5 GHz Octa-Core Processor – Fast!

Memory:  2 GB RAM

Storage 16 GB: (8.26 GB usable) - expandable via microSD™ card (sold separately) – If you plan on taking a lot of video or pictures (using that amazing resolution), may want to invest in a micro SD because 16 GBs will go fast!

I only highlighted a few of the features. To see the complete list, accessories and some great visuals go to http://www.lg.com/us/cell-phones/lg-SP320-Sprint-lg-x-charge

 

I hope this was helpful to you. Look for more soon.

Thanks for reading!

My boss won't like to hear this, but I like to have the TV on in the background when I work. And the LG G Pad F2 8.0 makes that easier.

Tah Dah!!!! It's here!11-17-2017 5-29-48 PM.png

 

 

 

As a previous LG owner, (several over the years), I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the LG V30+. So far I haven’t been surprised at the quality but only because I know if it’s an LG you get quality. It is an amazing phone right out of the box. It is light weight which is surprising given the battery capacity and size.

I ordered a Spigen case for it via Amazon.com. I wanted to make sure it was protected. But as fate would have it I dropped on the tile floor, kicked it across the room, dropped it on the ground off of my lap getting out of the car, and it fell off the back of the couch, all before I could get the case on it. Well I can honestly say that this is one heck of a durable phone! I have one little scratch on the corner but everything is still intact and working great! I have my case on it now. Just because you can do something, doesn’t mean that you should - I am not taking a chance again.  

 

Now for the specs.

  • Size: 97" (H) x 2.97" (W) x 0.29" (D)     Weight  5.57 oz.
  • Screen Size: 6.0 inches
  • Screen Resolution: 18:9 Aspect Ratio (2880 x 1440), 81.2% screen-to-body ratio and up to 4656 x 3492 pixels (default); 1.0 μm pixel size – Just know that the clarity is truly amazing.
  • Fingerprint-Resistant 3D Glass Back
  • Rear Key with Fingerprint ID
  • Premium Anodized Metal Sides
  • IP68 Dust and Water Resistant - Resistant not water proof so don't drop it in the pool just to see if it works.
  • Shock Resistant with MIL-STD-810G Testing
  • Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5 Protection on Front and Back Gorilla Glass 4 on Camera – that means it is tough. Check this out https://youtu.be/7pvZ7y6djKU
  • Heat Pipe Absorbs and moves heat away from the processor to further minimize the risk of overheating – This is a great feature especially on those hot summer days or when you forgot to unplug your phone. Nothing but the best incorporated into this phone.
  • Battery Capacity: 3,300 mAh – It lasts me about two days. Oh and keep in mind it is USB type C so if you had an older phone chances are your existing cables won’t fit but it comes with one.
  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon™ 835 2.45 GHz x 4 + 1.9 GHz x 4 Octa-Core MSM8998
  • Memory: 4 GB RAM
  • Storage: 128 GB – Can you believe that? But with the quality of photos, audio and video you can take with this it needs that much storage.

 

Key Features – Camera – Absolutely beautiful pictures and lots of feature available within the camera app without any additional downloads. Happy Camper!

  • 0" QHD+ OLED FullVision Display
  • Cine Effect - Choose from 16 different color grading presets to add a cinematic look. – It works! I love it!
  • F/1.6 Glass Camera Lens - Camera Resolution: 16MP
  • Point Zoom - Up to 8x (digital)! - Close and Clear! What more could you want?
  • Wide Angle Lenses - 13MP Wide Angle cameras (rear)
  • Hi-Fi Video Recording – It really is amazing - UHD 4K. Audio Recording using the built in HD

Audio recorder provides 24 bit 192MHZ. Both of these are adjustable and I recommend you take a look at the amount of room on your phone and/or SD Card before counting on using this high of quality. The higher the quality the more room it takes. You don’t want to be in the middle of the shoot and run out of room.

These are just a few of the features and specs for a complete list visit http://www.lg.com/us/cell-phones/lg-LS998U-lg-v30-plus

 

Look for my future posts, lots of exciting features with this one.
