DxOMark gives the LG G7 ThinQ just a touch better score than the LG V30

18 October 2018
The G7 ThinQ drags behind the competition when it comes to camera quality.

Sort by:

DxOMark is just a reference - a good one, but not quite comprehensive. You have to go deep into the detailed review to see which part drags down the score. Some of the categories might not be essential to you. Some people don't care about bokeh, but it is an important part of the overall evaluation of the camera, and the super wide angle feature is not considered in the test, which is a major selling point of LG.
My biggest concern is that the video test is only in 1080P 30FPS, which I rarely use. Huawei P20Pro has the best video score of 98, but if you put 4K or 1080P 60FPS into evaluation, it would be beaten by iPhone Xs Max.

Morfy, 19 Oct 2018LG G4 has almost same score 83 ... (2015 y.). https://www... morelg g5 had 86 points due to it has a bigger sensor 1/3 from g6 to newer devices and g4,g5,v10,v20 had 1/2.6 and f/1.8 which for me is balanced for daylight and low light .... I expect v40 to get a better score still g7 is not just a camera but a good phone overall ...ill keep my g5 until it dies performance is ok and adreno 530 is the base on games performance , camera is superb , easy to fix , battery I can replace .. nothing to worry about.. I think any one who has a sd820 phone got a superb phone already s7 for example

Mapantz, 18 Oct 2018What? The G7 is taller, thicker and heavier than the V30..Guys, what are you talking about? DxOMark is testing only camera capabilities, not whole smartphone...

Anonymous, 19 Oct 2018Why does gsm keep posting DxOMark's... we all know its bias... moreI can't agree with you. LG V30 as well as LG G7 have horrible cameras. Of course, in daylight they are quite good (but nowadays probably every smartphone can take nice photos in the day), but low-light shots are extremaly poor. It is because they use too small camera sensors. Fortunately V40's main camera has a bigger sensor and I am sure it will get visibly better score in DxOMark review.

This review is heavily biased. I have used both OnePlus 6 and LG g7 thinq, for me in every scenario LG G7 leads OnePlus 6(except fast autofocus).
Don't trust company scores. Who ever pays more; get more scores.
If you want to see original camera performance just see GsmArena's review section or look at dpreview detailed review

Many p... moreccompletely agree, if they trying to claim that they are testing without bias then they cannot include features that give a select few an advantage due to their features yet exclude features of other phones. LGs focus was to include the Wide angle and not a zoom but apparently that's not the kind of set up they want in a phone. Personally I love the LGs for their manual features that many phone don't have out of the box but this will never be reflected in these tests. It is also interesting that the sample photos seem to change from one phone to another which makes comparisons much harder for readers.

Who ever trying to take out the boot-loop issue of lg's, tell their brand name and I can dig their atrocities up for you. Every brand out there had gone through the rough equally, you only expect them to be better and appreciate it when it gets better that's all. Lg's 2018 phones deserve the attention and appreciation.

They reviewed it now when will they review V40 when G8 launches
