    Cant help but be disappointed in the Note 8. Sure it has 6gb instead of 4gb and an S Pen compared to the s8+, but im underwhelmed. At least as an S8+ owner. The smaller battery is also a turn off. I ordered on JOD anyway since its $0 down but im more hyped for the v30. First OLED phone display, great design, quad dac, dual screen. Anyone else killing time?

    Nope. Will never own another LG phone after all the issues I had with several G4's.

    It's not dual screen and until LG gets their camera issues fixed, they will never get my business again.

    Well the camera is the first with 1.6 aperture on a smartphone so it should be great. Also it is dual screen in the sense that the second display can be pulled out from underneath the status bar. lg g4 was a long time ago, the g6, v10, and v20 were all great phones.

    Apperture means nothing to me if it can't take a picture with motion in the frame without blur. The V20 and G6 were horrible with motion blur.

    Just played with it at best buy during my lunch break. Man its tall, tooooo tall. Defintely wont be a phone a women with small or regular sized hands can use comfortably. Im 5'11 with pretty big hands and it felt uncomfortable. Harder to reach the fingerprint sensor than the already tough s8+ and almost impossible to pull down notification shade without sliding your hands up on the back of the device. Definitely will only keep it until the v30 arrives, was hoping seeing it in person would change my mind.

    I just can't with LG, have never had good experiences with them. My last with LG was the V20 last summer post N7 drama. I also have a Samsung TV so I like the seamless transition between phone and tv.

    I have no idea why anyone would think the V30 is going to be better than the Note 8. There is no evidence that the V30 will have a quad DAC in the US. That floating bar they talk about is just a widget that a bazillion phones have already came with in the past. The previous P-OLED screens LG made had burn-in problems. The V30 battery is only 3000mAH. LG quality is poor. So on and so forth. Maybe it will end up surpassing expectations, but your expectations should be lower with the V30 than the Note 8, not higher.

    Yup. I have an LG G6 and LOVE the wide angle camera. But I got the Note 8 just to maximize the $425 trade in value. I plan to sell it when the LG V30 and Pixel come out.

    Same here, would be dumb to not take advantage of the $425 trade in. I had to endure the note 7 so this is the least they could do. I don't know why the guy above is laughing. Im the one laughing all the way to the bank. Ordered my tmobile JOD free, $0 down and will get a free $229 360 camera. Also ordered from Samsung and traded in a $70 iPhone 5 so got the Note 8 unlocked from them for essentially $610. Also comes with a free 360 camera. Can sell both cameras for about 300-350 combined. That leaves me with a brand new note 8 for less than $300. When the v30 comes out ill jump to that on tmobile and sell the unlocked Note 8 for $800 easy. that's a $500 profit for me when its all said and done.

    Nope. Lol. I had got the LG V20 due to the note7 mess. Don't get me wrong, it's a good phone. But I'm so used to Samsung and I love the note series. So I went back to my note 5 til the note 8 ships. Gave the v20 to my fiance. I'm just another loyal note fan.

    While I'm pretty sure the V30 will be better in some areas than the Note 8, I personally don't think its a better overall phone than the Note 8. The V30 will have most likely have the better camera and sound(Quad-DAC)....oh and better placement of the fingerprint scanner and that's pretty much it. In terms of performance, display, battery life, functionality with the S-Pen, security, and features such as Samsung Pay, the Note 8 wins.

    V30 will have the better display. First phone with an OLED display. Also how does the note 8 win on performance when its gonna have identical specs to the v30 and LG uses a lighter android skin. Battery life? you mean the smaller 3300 MAH battery in a 6.3 inch screen? v30 will have the same 3300mah in a 6 inch screen.
