    According to LG Australia's website, JB Hifi will start selling on the 16th November or so.

    Is it only JB hifi? Seems like a strange choice if it is.

    Putting the jack up top is such a monged idea.

    Something I've always wondered, aside from being more convenient when taking the phone in and out of your pocket (I always put my phone in top side down), is there any other real benefit to a bottom mounted headphone jack?

    I see it as consolidating cables at the bottom of the phone to help with clutter. I too also have my phone top side down when in my pocket.

    It could be due to motherboard layout that they decided to place the headphone port at the top, who knows though.

    Jb being the pricks they are have jacked the V30+'s price back up to $1199. I wouldn't risk getting a phone like LG from a grey source

    jb are the new hardly normals. you'd get a better price at myer if they stocked them
    i waited for the price drops on v20 to AUD430 (iirc) before i bought grey import.
    LG quality will always be questionable now, but the only bad thing about grey is the dumb adapter for the charger
    certainly not a deal breaker for me

    It's been mentioned that the camera is a flake especially in low light. The V30+ will eventually have the V30s firmware but will the camera be a polished turd?
