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: 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 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: A solid flagship competitor

 

In many ways the LG G7 is every bit the equal of its flagship rivals. There's power, a solid build, waterproofing and a great display. What LG offers

Solid design ; Good display ; Plenty of power ; Unique wide-angle camera ; 3.5mm headphone socket ; Price is less than flagship elite

Limited battery life compared to competition ; Artificial intelligence of camera is a bit hit and miss ; LG's software tweaks are unnecessary

LG G7 ThinQ review

 

A thoroughly different flagship phone, with unique extras that go beyond the gimmicky

Lots of power ; Useful wide angle camera ; Neat audio features ; Super-bright screen

Camera blows out shots ; LG software is a bit drab

Packed with quirks that work, the LG G7 ThinQ is a lovable oddball that offers something different at the right price

LG G7 ThinQ review

 

A reasonable, not revolutionary, smartphone upgrade

Large display can get very bright ; Camera takes wide-angle photos ; Boombox speaker gets loud

Far too expensive in the US ; Smaller battery capacity ; Few revolutionary features

The LG G7 ThinQ is a completely unsurprising, risk-averse smartphone that's meant to be smart, not flashy. It has an AI-powered camera, loud 'Boombox' speaker, and a bright 6.1-inch display. It's a reasonable, but not monumental upgrade over the LG G6.

LG G7 ThinQ review: Excellent value, but falls marginally short of greatness

 

A return to form, the LG G7 offers excellent all-around performance at a reasonable price

Bright screen ; Excellent build quality ; Dedicated wide-angle lens

Average battery life ; Camera AI mode needs work

With OnePlus’ latest “flagship killer” costing only £479, it’s difficult to wholeheartedly recommend the LG G7 until it comes down in price in a bit, which it inevitably will do – you only need to look at the pattern with LG’s previous flagships,...

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.
