LG G7

 

LG G7 review: LG has just unveiled the G7 – or LG G7 ThinQ – but can the Korean giant finally make a flagship you'll actually care about?

Google Assistant button is surprisingly useful ; Narrow dimensions make it easy to grip ; Fantastic audio through the headphone jack ; Proves that OLED isn’t always better than LCD

LG’s Android skin is ugly in so many areas ; Unreliable biometric unlocking ; Poor AI features ; Below-average battery life

The spec that stood out the most on the G7’s unveiling was its battery size. A 3000mAh cell in a phone with a 1000-nit, quad-HD+ 6.1-inch display was never going to end well. Well, it actually fared better than I’d anticipated – but remains...

LG G7 ThinQ review: A worthy S9 rival with a notch

 

LG has made notable improvements with the G7 ThinQ, and it might very well be the company's best phone yet. Not only does it has great looks and a gorgeous display, it also boasts unique features like a super-bright screen for outdoor use, a crazy-loud...

Beautiful display with 1000-nit brightness boost ; Dedicated Google Assistant button ; 3.5-mm headset jack for old-school audiophiles ; Super-loud speaker ; Decent photo quality

AI camera is hit or miss ; Notch is not for everyone ; Mediocre battery life

LG G7 ThinQ review

 

The LG G7 ThinQ checks off all the boxes on the list, but it isn't exciting.

Brilliant-sounding speakers ; Speedy software ; Solid battery life ; Versatile camera ; Useful Super Bright Display

Dull design ; AI Cam needs work ; Camera suffers in low light

The LG G7 ThinQ is a very good phone, but it will fly under the radar because it doesn’t have any standout feature. Our biggest problems are with the G7’s mediocre low-light cameras, which can’t hold a candle to the competition, and its dull design.

LG G7 ThinQ review: impressive audio and screen credentials elevate this AI-packed Android phone

 

LG's latest smartphone, the G7 ThinQ, hits hard in some key feature areas

Super bright screen ; Competitive internal hardware suite ; Fast UI navigation and app performance ; Excellent high-level audio features ; IP68 waterproof rating ; AI-packed camera system ; It's got a notch!

Only 3,000 mAh battery ; Image processing could be better ; Few unique, standout features ; It's got a notch!

LG G7 review: Does everything right except excite you

 

The G7's speedy processor, great camera and water resistance are as dependable as any premium phone. But there's nothing special to put it over the top.

The waterproof LG G7 ThinQ has an AI camera that gives your photos a boost before you snap them. The phone has a secondary wide-angle rear camera and a headphone jack.

The phone has a familiar design, its Google Assistant button isn't reprogrammable and battery life is unimpressive.

The LG G7 ThinQ is a really good phone, but one that fails to distinguish itself from more compelling offerings from Samsung, OnePlus and Google.

LG G7 ThinQ review

 

LG's G7 ThinQ is a decent smartphone, but ahead of its time.

Headphone jack ; Good build ; Sound quality is better than most ; Bright screen

Lots of bloatware ; Camera could be better ; AI-smarts aren’t smart enough

LG’s latest flagship indicates the shape of the brand’s smartphones yet to come – but it isn't quite there just yet

LG G7 ThinQ review: Big brains, bigger yawns

 

With a Snapdragon 845 processor, Boombox speaker, and an AI camera, the LG G7 ThinQ isn't a bad phone by any stretch. But it's not a particularly memorable phone either.

Good looking screen with a disappearing notch. ; Fantastic sound through the speaker or headphones.

Battery is just OK and performance suffers under the weight of its OS. ; Camera is a step backward, even with its AI-powered eye. ; Joins a lineup of too many similar phones from LG.

The G7 is a prime example of an in-between phone, but it’s dificult to say what LG is waiting for. It’s a clear improvement over the G6 and the V30, but the G7 isn’t strong enough to stand or excite on its own. And there are just too many LG phones to...

LG G7 ThinQ review: a big price for small improvements

 

LG's new G7 ThinQ has a truly awful name, but it's got a good design, terrific-sounding headphone jack, and a camera that opens many creative possibilities. Unfortunately, it's also way too expensive.

Good, very bright IPS LCD display ; Stellar headphone audio ; Super-wide camera offers creative flexibility ; Better touch haptics than other Android smartphones

Boom Box speaker is incredibly loud, but mono and easy to cover ; LG is putting no effort into software ; Mediocre battery life ; Too expensive on some carriers

LG G7 ThinQ

 

The G7 ThinQ hits the latest phone trends and includes signature LG features like a wide-angle camera and audiophile-quality sound for a solid alternative to flagships from Apple and Samsung.

Audiophile-friendly sound. Sharp, bright display. Solid low-light camera mode and AI image tweaking. Latest processor and modem.

AI camera processing can be slow. No real blockbuster new features.

The next few years are going to be big ones for smartphones. 5G will launch in 2019, enabling new applications and new form factors. We might see foldable phones, or AR- and VR-focused devices. But for now, we have phones like the Samsung Galaxy S9 and...

The LG G7 Review: A Rushed Attempt?

 

This year was a change in pace for LG. The company's "mainline" flagship device, the LG G7, was released a couple of months later later than in years prior, hitting the market in the early summer rather than the more traditional spring.

Lastly, the new “Boombox” speaker promised some big improvements in sound quality. Sure, if you’re the type to put your phone down and listen to music, then the G7 does compete quite well. Unfortunately a handheld device is, well, most often held in...
