You’d think LG’s latest smartphone would just wither away against Apple’s latest flagship, but that’s not the case at all. Not only does LG’s V30 hang tough, but it just may be 2017’s sleeper hit, thanks to its wonderful design and excellent dual camera system.
None of V30’s strengths will really matter, however, once Apple’s mighty marketing machine kicks into high gear this holiday season. You’ll see the iPhone X everywhere this holiday season, from TV commercials to freeway billboards. In that regard, the V30 doesn’t stand a chance.
But look at the two devices on paper, and the divide isn’t as big as you’d think.
