LG G7 and V30
LG is a brand that has accustomed us to lower the price of its flagships within a few months of launch. At that time, LG's flagships are very easy to recommend, being terminal very complete and with few mistakes.
Both the LG G7 and the V30 are two phones that are worthwhile, and share position on this list. The G7 is the best of both, but also slightly more expensive and with notch, a screen style that although some like, others prefer a more traditional format.
What we like about LG is its commitment to sound, since they include a DAC that improves the sound if you use headphones for jack output. We also love his second camera with wide angle. For the rest, two mobiles with hardly any shortcomings and with features such as water resistance.
