One of the things I consider when it comes to reviewing new smartphones is whether it could comfortably replace whatever device I'm currently using.

When I reviewed Google's Pixel 2 XL, it made me want to switch from my iPhone 6s Plus, and I've been using the Pixel 2 XL ever since. The $800+ LG V30, on the other hand, has not made me want to switch.

To be clear, that's not to say that the LG V30 is a bad phone. Samsung's mighty Galaxy phones haven't made me want to switch, either, and the Galaxy phones' success is a clear sign that people love those phones.

In fact, there's little that differentiates the LG V30 from those other high-end Android smartphones - but it's those little differences that make the biggest impact.
