LG is one of those companies who were renowned for launching exclusive budget smartphones for the users. In this ever-growing competitive mobile business world, they have lost their path a little bit. But recently they have tried to come back with three new smartphones LG W10, W30 & W30 pro.
Good Looking Design
In spite of having a plastic body, the LG W30 has a gorgeous design which gives it a premium look. The device comes in two different color variants: Platinum grey and Thunder blue version.
It has got a premium look because of its’ chrome-plated sides and a brushed aluminum pattern on the back covered with 2.5D curved plastic. The front glass and the sides have rounded edges which makes the LG W30 very comfortable to hold.
The plastics used in W30 are good enough to resist any scuff marks or scratches on the laminated back. On the left of the phone, there is a hybrid dual-SIM tray which supports two 4G Nano-SIMs with VoLTE and ViLTE. At its down, microSD card slot has been provided for internal storage.

The headphone socket is placed on the top, while the speaker and Micro-USB port are at the bottom. At such a price range, USB type C port was expected to provide but LG didn’t feel the necessity of it.
Customizable Notch Display
LG W30 has a pretty large 6.26-inch LCD display of HD+ resolution with 18.9:9 aspect ratio. The display quality is very satisfactory. It has a notched display with thick borders on all sides of the phone. One of the most interesting thing about the smartphone’s display is the availability of customizable option for the notch. You can choose between the water drop, V-notch or a full bezel on the top for the smartphone. There is an option available too to disable the notch if you don’t prefer it but that might reduce the display size by disabling the screen area around the notch.

Versatile Camera Section
The LG W30 has three excellent rear cameras. The main 12-megapixel camera is featured with an aperture of f/2.0, a 13-megapixel wide-angle fixed-focus camera with a f/2.2 aperture, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. Sony IMX486 sensor has been used in the main camera. In daylight, image quality is decent enough to satisfy the user. They are sharp, the colors look vivid too. Sometimes photos captured in landscape mood lack good detail. The autofocus system in the camera section is slightly dull which needs to get improved soon.

The W30 has a dedicated night mode option for capturing photos in low light, but the rear camera finds it difficult to capture photos with details and the photos come out grainy in the mode. The selfie camera works good in sufficient light, but the photos often become slightly overexposed at times.
There are different modes in the camera section to capture photos like Panorama, Video, Photo, Bokeh, Beauty, Night, Time Lapse and Slow Motion.
Moderate Software & Hardware
LG W30 is powered by a MediaTek Helio P22 processor along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage facilities. The memory can be expanded by inserting a microSD card. The chipset given in the phone is basically used in entry level smartphones so it might be difficult for W30 to withstand in the competition with other smartphones like Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2, Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro and Realme 3 Pro which offer better specifications and features.
Coming to the software, the LG W30 runs on Android 9 Pie. The default Android 9 navigation style uses a swipe-able Home button to switch between apps, just like on Google Pixel phones, but you can switch to the more common three-button scheme. Digital Wellbeing is also present in the phone. The user interface is lightweight and quite smooth to use.
One of the most amazing thing of the phone is weight in the device. In spite of having a powerful 4,000 mAh battery, the LG W30 is pretty light in weight.

Heavy use of the cameras and even moderate gaming don’t put pressure on its’ battery life, which is one of the impressive sides of LG W30. It can easily last for about a day and a half (if not more) on a single charge by moderate usage. The phone ships with a 10W adapter, which can charge the battery upto 100% within two & half hours. It has only one 3/32 GB variant which costs RS 9,999.
LG W30 is one of the budget phones introduced by LG. There are so many competitors of the phone in a similar price range. But if you consider its’ impressive built quality, attractive looks & its’ vivid display, you can surely choose this phone.
