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 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 initial review: A solid flagship competitor

 

The LG G6 had a chequered life. It celebrated a new aspect display - one of the first phones to offer this breakthrough - but launching in early 2017 it

The LG G7 ThinQ tells a flagship story on the spec sheet, hitting a few unique points with an enhanced audio offering, that wide-angle camera and a good level of design and build. There's even a 3.5mm headphone socket.

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 ThinQ review (hands on): LG's new flagship is here and it's a blinder

 

Powerful internals, an incredibly bright screen and an impressive-looking camera – the LG G7 ThinQ looks a very good smartphone indeed

So, what to make of the LG G7 ThinQ? It certainly looks as if it’s a big improvement over the LG G6, and that’s a good thing. While the LG G6 initially looked like it would be one of the phones of 2017, it was swiftly overtaken by the rest of the market.

LG G7 ThinQ

 

The latest offering from LG feels like every other new Android flagship on the market, and as such cannot distinguish itself from the competition.

Lightweight design; Powerful processor; Clean UI; Well priced

No standout feature

After a few weeks with the G7 ThinQ, it has proved a confusing phone. The design is not special by any degree, but its weight made it great to use. The processor setup is similar to a few phones out there, but it's scored the best while benchmarking....

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
