The LG V30 marks two important firsts for fun and usability its the companys first Daydream-compatible phone and its the first device to support T-Mobiles new 600MHz band. (Note: the Galaxy Note8 was rumored to also support 600MHz, but it lacks the crucial Band 71).
The V30 is LGs first OLED-packing phone in a while P-OLED specifically, which LG tells us is a kind of AMOLED. And its HDR-enabled meaning it can better handle the advanced lighting of modern games. Anyway, its large, high-resolution display in a fairly compact body. And theres Snapdragon 835s Adreno 540 GPU to push VR graphics. By the way, the Google Daydream View headset is $75 on Amazon.
