LG took the wraps off its newest flagship this week, the LG V30. We’ve got the usual high-end smartphone specs: a Snapdragon 835 SoC, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a 3300mAh battery, and an old version of Android—7.1 Nougat. What’s interesting are the display and the camera.

The display is the first LG-made OLED display we’ve seen in some time, and the camera hits a new high with an f1.6 aperture.
We recently got to spend some time with the device, and the first thing that stands out is the aesthetic.

The design is great; it’s a clear evolution-of and improvement-on the LG G6. The G6 was LG’s first phone with super-slim bezels, and on the V30 the bezels are even smaller.

The ugly “LG” logo is gone from the bottom of the phone and the front glass is nicely curved to meet the sides, instead of the flat slab of glass used on the G6. Like the G6, the corners of the display are round, but again things are improved over the G6.

The G6 did a clunky job of transitioning the screen corners into the rest of the display, but on the V30, the corners are a lot smoother and form a more natural, pleasing shape.
