LG V30 was announced about two months back sporting quite a number of scintillating features including a f/1.6 aperture camera which should be one of the best we are seeing in a smartphone camera. The device also features a Full Vision display with a nearly bezel-less design. The V30 has proven to be a lot different from other flagships in many aspects and that has again been reaffirmed by the latest Scratch, burn and bed test carried out on the V30 by JerryRigsEverything (Zacks Jerry).
We recently saw the teardown of the V30 which indicated a well thought-out internal design and hardware. The latest scratch, bend and burn test saw the V30 performing extremely well under tough conditions. The device was first subjected to a scratch test where the display is scratched with a scratch pen and the device was able to withstand up to level 6 on the Mohs scale. That is because the display is protected by a Gorilla Glass 5 protection. The scratch test was also carried out on the rest of the body and that shows the body is entirely made of metal which doesn’t scratch easily.
The V30 was next subjected to a burn test and the burn test revealed that after 10 seconds the screen started to show damage to the pixels. Since it is OLED display, the damage is irreversible but then, who exposes direct fire to a flagship’s display for up to 10 seconds? Lastly, the bend test was carried out and the V30 comes out victorious. Zacks Jerry noted that the LG V30 is a “solid, premium-feeling phone.”
To refresh our memories, the LG V30 features a 6-inch OLED display with a 1440 x 2880 resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio. It has 4GB of RAM that is paired with a Snapdragon 835 SoC. A 16MP f/1.6 sensor paired with a 13MP f/1.9 lens grace its back. Up in front is a 5MP f/2.2 sensor. The V30 also comes with an IP68 rating, packs a 3300mAh battery and runs Android 7.1.2 Nougat out of the box. HEre is the Scratch, Burn and Bend test video.
