LG G7 Plus ThinQ Review



Hellow guys, today we gonna talk about LG G7 Plus ThinQ. The LG G series is a line of high-end Android devices produced by LG Electronics. The "G" designation was first introduced in 2012 as a branch of the LG Optimus series for flagship devices, but LG announced in July 2013 that the "Optimus" name would be discontinued for future flagships in favor of maintaining "G" and "Vu" as distinct brands. The first purely G-branded phone, the LG G2, was unveiled in August 2013. Well, now we gotta see LG G7, let's go.

Design

Honestly, It's design are quite simple, non-flashy, unibody glass design - looks fairly good in most colors, but this is not a phone that will stand-out, also narrow dimensions make it easy to grip. There’s a dedicated AI button on the left side of the phone - a single press launches Google Assistant, a double press launches you straight into Google Lens, and a long press on the key takes you straight into voice commands with Assistant, well it’s a pretty intuitive system, and one that you are likely to quickly start using, and this smarthphone have  IP68 water-resistance. One thing that make me feel quite annoying are, it's face unlock is a little on the sluggish side.

Software

LG's custom UI over Android is decent, and runs butter smooth given the hardware


Camera

Very good AI powered cameras on the rear and the front. The rear dual camera system takes wide-angle photos, recognises low-light situations to employ a 'Super Bright' mode to make photos and video four times as bright albeit at a reduced resolution, the bokeh shots come out well too - overall, the camera is not too far behind the best of the lot like the Google Pixel 2, Google Pixel 2 XL, or Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus. The 8MP front facing camera is pretty good too, it provides a crisp enough and adequately wide enough selfie shooter. When there is enough light, the detail is on par with the Samsung Galaxy S9 front facing camera. Video recording is done well too, and the 'Super Bright' Mode is present here too

Display

Bright, modern, tall 6.1-inch display - the brightness maxes out at 1, 000 nits - making it ideal for outdoor use when a normal smartphone peaks at 500 or maybe 600 nits - the only comparable flagship phone is the Galaxy S9 Plus, which can reach similar brightness levels.

Performance

The performance all round is top notch, given the Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 that rests inside, it compares closely to other flagship devices.

Battery

Supports fast charging, and wireless charging, just battery capacity is decent (will last the day with moderate use), but could have been better, considering the competition.

Audio

Another highlight is the loud 'Boombox' speaker - it’s plenty loud, and uses the entire phone to pump out rich bass - it's arguably the best speaker implementation on a flagship phone. The phone is also filled with some of the best audio specs, including DTS : X 3D Sound through any wired headphones, and a 32-bit HiFi Quad DAC with 50% reduced noise, you’re going to be able to hear the difference if you’re an audiophile.

Conclusion

Lastly, on the whole, the LG G7 ThinQ is a largely risk-averse flagship smartphone that's meant to be smart, not flashy, to that, it's able to do justice, and is arguably LG's best phone in years. It will likely compete well in the market as a cheaper flagship alternative to the Galaxy S9 series, being one step behind it only in the camera department, although it will also face tough competition on the other end from even cheaper flagships like the OnePlus 6.
