Is LG V30 the Smartphone with Premium Cinematography Capabilities?

I realized that I have not mentioned anything about the LG V30 which debuts in IFA 2017. Going through the specs, I really think that this might be the phone that can take cinematography quality videos.

Let’s take a look at some of the specs. Basically, it has all the things that flagship phones should have (Wireless Charger, Fast Charging, Water/dust resistant, big almost bezel-less screen, fast chip, external storage and awesome cameras (dual rear cameras)).

LG V30 has more to offer. Apart from having an OLED FullVision display and high-quality audio capability, it is also capable of recording in Cine Mode (which is recording in flat log format). With this mode, you can easily tweak the color profile of the video when you transfer it to the computer. Most movies are color graded to give that “feel” about them.

This, in my opinion, is really interesting for those who wish to make movies using smartphones. If you want to see how awesome the video by the LG V30 is, click on this LINK. The video is made by David Franco, director of cinematography for Game of Thrones, Westworld and Minority Report on the LG V30.

Awesome, right? After looking at so many phones in the market, I am really impressed with this one. Check out the product video.
