The LG V30 is one of the best smartphones out in the market at the moment, and if you're wondering how it did in a series of drop tests, well, read on. A YouTube channel called 'GizmoSlip' actually decided to drop test the LG V30, in order to give you a better idea as to how durable it is. The device was dropped 10 times from various angles, and they were dropped from about 1.5m, elbow height. GizmoSlip actually refers to this drop test as the 'Ultimate Drop Test', and the source actually drop-tested both the Galaxy Note 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus in the past, but we'll talk about that a bit later.

These drop tests were supposed to hit the following sides of each of the LG V30: bottom left, bottom right, bottom side, top right, top left, top side, left side, right side, back and front. Having said that, all of these tests have been filmed, of course, and the video is embedded down below for you to check out. Spoiler alert, the LG V30 actually managed to survive all drop tests, though it got banged up a bit, which was to be expected. Now, the Galaxy Note 8 actually offered the same outcome back when it was tested by the source, it managed to survive all 10 drops, while the iPhone 8 Plus did not do as good, it survived 9 out of 10 drops. All of these phones are actually made out of metal and glass, as most of you probably already know, so it's nice to see that they did this well in a series of drop tests, especially considering that most of you probably won't drop them from a height greater than this.

Having said that, the LG V30 was announced back in August, and we've actually already reviewed the phone, just in case you're interested in finding out more about it. As already mentioned, the LG V30 is made out of metal and glass, and it actually has really thin bezels, which certainly don't help with drops, but the phone did manage to do just fine despite that. The LG V30 is fueled by the Snapdragon 835 64-bit octa-core processor, while it sports a 6-inch QHD+ P-OLED display, 4GB of RAM and 64GB / 128GB of internal storage. It is worth noting that the LG V30 is MIL-STD-810G compliant, which was hard to believe considering what the phone looks like, but it just proved that it's able to take some beating, that's for sure.
