LG V30+ now available at US Cellular, no longer a Sprint exclusive

The LG V30 has been unveiled as the standard smartphone of the two LG unveiled at the end of August. But the LG V30 Plus (known formally as the LG V30+) was considered to be the more exciting of the two V30 models.

There’s only one major difference between the two LG V30 models in terms of specs. The LG V30+ has 128GB of storage while the LG V30 has 64GB of storage. One minor difference between the two phones, specs aside: the LG V30 was available at all carriers while it appeared as though the LG V30+ would be a Sprint exclusive here in the US. All four major US carriers (Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint) have already started selling the LG V30, but Sprint was the only carrier with the LG V30+ in its clutches – that is, until now.

Fifth-ranked wireless carrier US Cellular now has the LG V30+ available for sale at its website and in stores. The LG V30+ is available in Aurora Black and brings the same specs you’ve loved about the LG V30: a 6-inch, Full Vision POLED display with a Quad HD+ resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio, Qualcomm’s octa-core Snapdragon 835 SoC, 4GB of RAM, microSD expansion, 5MP front-facing camera, 16MP (f/1.6) and 13MP (f/1.9) dual rear camera combo, USB Type-C charging, and a 3,300mAh battery running Android 7.1.2 Nougat. Though it hasn’t arrived yet, the LG V30+ will be eligible for Android 8.0 Oreo

The LG V30+, like the LG V30, has received HDR support from Netflix, allowing you to watch movies and TV shows with incredible detail. The LG V30 camera app has been ported over to rooted LG G6 models, so you can test out what the V30 camera experience has in store if you own LG’s earlier smartphone from this year. US Cellular customers can expect to pay $30.20 per month for 30 months on an installment plan, or $849 outright. LG has created a Second Year Warranty Program for its LG G6, and we expect the LG V30 and LG V30+ to carry the same 2-year protection. 

The LG V30+ was inspired by LG’s G6+ announced this summer. The LG V30 is considered to be LG’s best smartphone ever, and the expansion of the LG V30+ to carriers beyond Sprint is good news for US customers.
