    There was a bit of controversy surrounding images taken with the pre-release LG V30 review units. The meta data in the images indicated that the actual aperture on the main shooter of the device was f/1.69. This caused a bit of heartache when LG announced the V30 had an f/1.6 aperture main shooter. It seemed as though LG was being a bit misleading.

    Photos taken with later units were showing the aperture to be f/1.6. So why did the pre-release units say the images were f/1.69? According to LG they were disguising the aperture so the announcement would be a surprise. Here is what LG had to say about the entire situation.

    There was a definite difference between the images taken with the LG V30 and images taken with devices featuring an f/1.7 aperture camera. The low light performance is obviously better on the V30 in most situations than a device like the Galaxy S8.

    don't blame them for hiding the newer tech. don't want others to copy it and release it before they do. and if it did not work that well, then nobody will know :)

    Now if they can just get the screen to show solid colors evenly without the banding and blooming. If they fix that, this is my next phone....
