LG G7 ThinQ review

03 July 2018
LG is finally releasing a G-series phone with the latest Snapdragon - yay! Regardless whether we have some supply chain optimization or LG's product planning to thank, the fact of the matter is the G7 ThinQ is now available internationally and it's a proper high-end device.

The SD835 GPU is still good in 2019 for gaming and other tasks. The OLED screen is the same on the more expensive Pixel 2XL, but the screen on the A50 is a little bit better in terms of punchy colours. It has Quad Dac for good sounding music through wired headphones. The wide angle camera is very useful too. Weaknesses: Poor front camera, average battery (around 5.5 hours SOT heavy usage), maybe more expensive than others

Does the battery improve if resolution is lowered to 1080 or less?

Android Pie update brings this feature(hdmi out via USB C using suitable adapter)to LG G7 . Just got the update today and tested this function. Soon after connecting, get black bars on all 4 sides. Just pinch out, you get a normal display on TV. Nice

Hi,

After having recently quit LG Tech Support Div. G7 is probably the worst release of the co. in recent years. Several data security test have been neglexted to keep deadline push, also mismanaged chip set purchase decisions have caught global tech rumours. If you buy this, you buy the biggest risk of your life. The last thing I would spend money on is a g7 beleive me.

Is this phone still worth buying in 2019? The price and the specs are amazing! I am waiting for some opinions.

I recently moved from Ontario to Nova Scotia. Where I live my phone service is terrible. I noticed my phone has Wi-Fi calling feature which I have tried to setup but it keeps disconnecting on me. I called Rogers(who is my provider) and they told me my phone does not have this feature. Has anyone had this problem? Please help

I am having problems with Wi-Fi calling. I moved from Ontario to Nova Scotia and my provider is Rogers. I am unable to connect to Wi-Fi calling and I am unable to make or receive calls at my house. I have called Rogers and they told me this feature is not on my phone which I find hard to believe because it shows on my phone. Does anyone use this feature and how did you get it to work?

Purchased LG7 in December, had issues with freezing in January, reset, freezing in February, OS up to date; camera quality not as good as LG5 I previously owned; contacted LG - sent in phone for repairs and phone was returned with scratches from mechanical repair; waiting and waiting to hear what they will do about a substandard product, shoddy repair, and poor customer service.

So...the camera I'd say is on par with an iPhone but not as good as a SGS8/9/note etc. But the LG G7thinQ is blazing fast and battery life is better than any Samsung phone I have ever owned. The wireless charging is quick and cable charging is 1 of the fastest on the market to date.
I've been using mine since I got it in june 2018 and it has been excellent, absolutely no lagging and crashing issues whatsoever,
it runs a lot smoother than my previous SGS notes & 7/8/9's.
The screen is just stunning and the sound from the hi-fi quad DAC and DTS:X 3D surround is awesome.

  • @GSMArena

have you testes the audio jack with high impedance headphones and activated HIFI DAC?

"Plugging in the headphones brought the volume down significantly - the G7 ThinQ was actually below average in this case which was surprising and means bigger headphones might not be as loud as we would like."
