Most carriers donâ€™t do their own unboxings, but T-Mobile does and often creates a unique way to showcase new flagships. T-Mobileâ€™s have involved swimming with sharks, skydiving, and other extreme stunts. The latest, however, is pretty tame. Itâ€™s just product expert Des Smith filming his LG V30 unboxing with another V30.
The entire video was shot on a V30. Smith starts by taking the phone through Seattle, proving how crisp and clear video recording on the V30 is. Then he brings in into the office for a regular unboxing but uses a second V30 to continue filming. Throughout the unboxing, Smith breaks away to other clips that highlight important features.
If youâ€™re interested in the V30, itâ€™ll be released by the major U.S. carriers next week. T-Mobile will start take pre-orders on October 5, and then the V30 will be released on the magenta-colored network on October 13. Customers can get the phone for $30/mo for 24 months with $80 down. Another option is to pay the full retail price, which is set at $800 for the V30. So itâ€™s a very expensive phone, but the LG V30 does appear to be worth every penny.
Stay tuned for our full review of the LG V30 in the coming weeks.
