Help me between 2 Lg Phones

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am hoping that some can help me decide between buying a new LG g6, or a used LG v30.

The upside of a new g6 is that I won't have any problems with a new device so that's the inherent upside.

 

The upside of the lgv30 is the massive 128GB storage,  faster cpu,  better camera,  bettery battery.

 

The downside of getting a used one is it can have screen burn in,  potentially a pretty degraded battery,  and other unforseen problems,  and it costs more a little bit more.  The seller gives it a 9/10 and 30 day refund though.  People have said it is really a sprint variant called: ls 998 that has been converted to a us 998, is that fine for carriers like T-Mobile and Att? Will I be able to root it?


Here is g6 it is T-Mobile factory unlocked for $140 new. Is T-Mobile the best variant for Usa?

Here is lt v30 (I'm assuming it's the v30+?) It is us 998 unlocked for $160 used.

I've owned the G6 and liked it a lot; it was a perfect size and it's overall design was very appealing. I guess this'll come down to which device will suit your needs best, so what are you looking for to do with the phone? Also, if you're worried about issues with the phone get a Squaretrade warranty on it, that way you're at least covered should something come up (I'd do this for either phone honestly).

 

Idk anything about rooting so I can't comment on that.

I just wanted a phone with a more modern design and both of these phones look visually appealing.

 

I am a power user,  and want to be able to take many good quality pictures,  I heard that both phones have good camera,  the v30 beeing a bit better,  in your experience how Is it the camera on the g6?  Can it compare to a IPhone 7,8 or Samsung galaxy s6, s7?

 

In my previous phone it was 32Gb and I ran out of space in not too much time and 128 is just very appealing, I think the g6 has a expansion SD card slot,  but it's not the same as internal storage,  not as capable.

 

Also the better battery of the v30 is appealing because I am a power user,  but I did see people say it was pretty good on the g6.

If you want to root, be on a GSM carrier and get an an international version of phone, not a carrier model...


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.

Both are a good deal, but if you want the cheapest and safest option, go with the G6. You can always expand the storage with a micro-SD card.

As far as  I am aware you can't store most apps on a Micro-SD card,  mostly just music and photos?

It seemed to be that way on my Samsung android tablet.
