    Who's seriously considering the V30?

    I'm not. My V20 has more features I care about. V30 has nothing I care about. Amazing. Not a single feature.

    That's fair... That's the way to make the best choice.... Buy what makes you happy.

    Still enjoying my Galaxy S8+, so not likely to get this phone. Though, if it did come out when the S8+ did, I might have back then.

    I'm a long time Samsung user. Can you please educate me as to the features the V20 has that the V30 doesn't?

    but with wireless charging and on the 600mhz band I think I may just get it.

    You probably like the new features better but what I miss in order of importance to me is ir blaster, 16/9 screen ratio, removable battery, and always on second screen. If they included LED notifications (not in either version) it may have swayed me to V30 despite missing the other features. I also don't know if the high quality DAC is in the new version but that alone wouldn't get me.

    Yes and water resistant, oled display, upgraded DAC upgraded camera. Aspect ratio is really personal choice but I like the 2/1

    Yeah there is a lot to like about the V20 still.

    I think the 600mhz band will be the V30's biggest selling point.

    Please note I warned the features I care about may not matter to others. The upgrades I've read about to the camera don't matter to me. I am strictly a point and shoot guy and I don't care about wide angle in either version. I like LCD (no burn in and easier on my eyes) but it isn't a key feature for me so I didn't include it. Aspect ratio is very important to me but like everything I listed I only said it is important to me not anyone else. The reason is virtually everything I watch in Netflix or Comcast Stream or NESNgo is 16/9.

    Water resistance, like improved DAC, are nice features but I listed my preferences in order of importance to me. Water resistance not key to me. Exchangeable battery WAY more important and I don't think it would be water resistant with that feature.

    I'm not trying to talk anybody out of the V30. It simply has removed all of the features that attracted me to V20

    I'm not interested, but that's because I've had a V20 less than a month.

    I'm curious yes. But I already ordered the note 8. And for the cheap price I got the note for its hard to justify purchasing the v30 over it as the v30 will likely cost more than the 525 I paid for the note.

    If I knew my area would get band 71 I would get it. Otherwise my G6 does just fine.

    Already got my Note 8 pre-ordered. For me, the V30 is too much of a departure from the previous V series phones. I bought both the V10 and V20 over the Note 5 and Note 7 because of things like removable battery, IR, expandable storage, a second screen, and a better audio experience with Quad-DAC. I also loved the build quality of the phones, especially the V10 which had the steel rails and all the buttons on the back of the phone. It was a truly unique phone.

    Now with the V30, it looks about the same as my S8+ and they removed most of the features that gave me a reason to choose the V series over the Note series previously. I'm sure it will be a great phone and I'm sure people will love the new OLED display and water resistance, I just feel the Note 8 is the better phone overall when you compare the two.

    Obviously this is personal choice, so I'm not here to dispute your preference, but I'm curious on what way you find LCD easier on your eyes? I've always had AMOLED (Moto) and find that the LCD on my G6 is always blowing out my retinas at night or early morning, just curious . . .

    Cause the Mate 9 exist, i've used this phone for half a year, and it offers phenomenal battery combined with big screen, lagfree performance and great rear n front cameras, it still something that missing with all new phones, oh and it got IR blaster and stereo speakers, for me it's important mainly the awesome battery.

    Would liie like to buy the v30, but it's too small, average battery, poor selfie, average speaker, no IR blaster which i use, and mainly the battery... Even though the DAC is temping to me, i have external DAC Fiio K1, which does the job

    I'm not. Because I feel the V30 is what the G6 should have been from the beginning. It's like if the S8 had the SD821, and then the note 8 came with the SD835.

    Having just bought the G6 3 months ago gonna stick it out for a bit, but if anything I'll jump ship to the Note 8. Less curved screen than S8, 6gb ram, 64 gb storage, and best display on the market, per independent testers

    Not a fan of 18x9, since 6" since too thin portrait mode for me.

    Wish LG went flat and 16x9 with thin bezel.
