As we swap out our 2018 calendars for 2019, it may seem odd to look at the LG V30. Lest we forget, though, it’s equipped with a spacious 6-inch POLED screen, an excellent Quad-Dac and headphone jack combination for optimal audio, and a stand-out camera array.
While the phone itself stands as an excellent value, there are a few accessories worth investigating to get the most out of your V30. Rather than running you on a wild goose chase, we’ve compiled a list of the best LG V30 accessories.
1More Triple-Driver In-Ear
For better or worse, one of the main selling points of LG phones is their retention of the headphone jack. Although Bluetooth audio is convenient, it’s quality can’t compete with wired listening. As long as you’re spending the money on an audio-oriented phone, you might as well get the most out of it with the 1More Triple Driver In-Ear.
As the name implies, these earbuds feature two balanced armature drivers and one dynamic driver per earbud to mitigate distortion. Aside from sounding good, these earbuds are engineered to be comfortable for long listening sessions thanks to the angled nozzles and lightweight form factor. What’s more, the Kevlar fiber-reinforced cable is durable and resists fraying. If you happen to receive a call, just use the in-line mic and remote to answer it. For just $75, these earbuds are a great option according to our audio sister site SoundGuys. 1More also caters to those who prefer over-ear headphones.
Samsung Evo Select 128GB microSD card
Expandable storage is a must-have for many, LG users in particular since it’s intended for power users and content creators. Although you can opt for 128GB of internal storage, that may not be enough for some. In which case, spending a few extra bucks for a reliable microSD seems a no-brainer. With this, you don’t have to think twice about downloading that new album from Spotify or binge-worthy podcast series.
Spigen Liquid LG V30 case
Your phone has your back on a regular basis what with looking up irrelevant facts, checking Instagram likes, and giving obligatory responses to low-priority emails, so you should have its back by investing in a case. The Spigen Liquid LG V30 case is affordable and features an inoffensive, transparent design. TPU allows the case to be lightweight and gives the LG V30 a bit more grip than its metallic slippery body allows for.
Tempered glass screen protector (2 pack)
The LG V30 POLED screen isn’t much good if it’s covered in unsightly scrapes and scratches. It’s worth abstaining from that venti Starbucks specialty drink for one week if it means you no longer have to baby your phone’s screen. These tempered glass screen protectors are easy to install and remove if one becomes damaged.
Anker Qi-certified wireless charger
Anker has had a few successful forays into audio, most recently with its true wireless earbuds; ultimately, though, the company is recognized for its portable power banks. This Qi-certified wireless charger stands your LG V30 up at an angle for easy viewing of incoming notifications. Additionally, users don’t have to worry about overheating as this is designed to combat overvoltage and temperature issues. If something does happen to go awry, Anker has you covered with its 18-month warranty.
