LG V30 vs LG G6: Display

LG V30 vs LG G6: Display

First things first, we want to talk about the display. It's one of the most important aspects of any smartphone purchase for many. 

The LG G6 has a beautiful 5.7-inch Quad-HD screen that covers almost the entire front of the phone. The black bar bezels on the top, bottom, and sides are all minimized. This is called an edge-to-edge display, or close. Many Samsung and LG users love it. 

However, the new LG V30 took that idea and ran with it. The V30 is LG's first OLED display in a flagship phone, so potentially comparable to Samsung displays. It comes in at 6-inches and has even smaller bezels than the LG G6. Meaning the front is almost all screen, and it looks great.  This is called a "Full Vision Quad HD P-OLED Display". 

The P in the name stands for plastic, as it's not made out of glass. This makes it more durable and less prone to cracks or breaking if you drop it. For added protection, there's still glass on top of it, and LG curved the edges similar to the Galaxy Note 8.

Here's what you need to decide. If you don't want a huge phone, get the LG G6. That said, the V30 has a bigger 6-inch screen but smaller bezels, so you're not dealing with an overly large phone that's too big to handle. It's a touch choice.
