Only 32 GB Hybrid style slot meant it wasn't future proof though excellent still (wife using one). S8 is better than S9 at least for Exynos. Snapdragon never reached our shores. G7 + ThinQ I am using has difficulty with holding on to GPS (discovered now) which is fixed in July security patch update but not available in India. LG's consistency with bootloop earned them a tag which will take time. Samsung though good have their own issue of UI lag that will take some time but is the most feature rich and stable.
Why the hell did they feature a 3,000 mAh battery? That is not sufficient for a screen in this size. So disappointed with LG.
iam using lg g6 and it is almost one year old my g6 is amazing not a single problem and after updat to oreo it much faster and battery life is also extended. so iam thinking for upgrade to lg thinku

I will never go back to LG.
I have two Lg G7 phones and my biggest concern is the difference in display on the two devices. One phone has a pinkish screen and the other has warm yellowish screen. The difference is huge and you can easily tell that. The color settings on both the phones are set to auto. Its either because of two different kind of displays being used in the phone or its a factory display calibration problem. Has anyone else noticed this? Didn't expect this on a flagship device.
This is turning out to be a fantastic purchase so far. Used S7 and upgraded to S9. Was the biggest mistake as the Exynos variant is pretty bad. Sold it after 2 months as was not practical to format every month to fix the battery drain and over heating. S8 is far better in this regard. Next was Pixel 2. Solid device but Stock Android is too vanilla. Upgrade to Pie was nice and smooth but the GPS bug while using Maps remains and was reliant on 3rd party apps for features. Now, G7. It is the best allrounder. Still on June security patch but I need my phone to just work with DUAL SIM functionality. RAM and ROM are perfect. Updates can wait if the device can work this awesome.
Bought G7 .... amazingly bright screen easily visible in bright sunlight. The LCD has 4 pixels Red Green Blue and White. This screen uses very little power when compared with my previous phones when brightest screen is used. I ride a bike a lot outdoors and the G7 is simply terrific. Highly recommend this phone. We bought from T-mobile on a two for price of one deal.
My g5 died in the swimming pool so I've bought the g7 TinQ.
I prefer my old G5 for the reasons below:
- Wider camera
- Removable battery
- Size. G7 is too long and falls from my pocket.
- And a very important one to me: HDMI output
G7 over the G5:
- Better screen
- Water proof
- Sighltly better performance.
There is not a big difference in performance.
Camera in the g7 is better, but on the g5 you can install Google Cam Mod, and in can't find any mod working on the g7.
In my opinion is not worth update from the G5 to the G7
Anonymous, 28 Jul 2018There have not been any problems on lg phones regarding bootloops since the g6 came out. V30, ... morebootloop and motherboard are big, unprecedented problems on LG phones ... g3, g4, v10, pro lite d686 ... Problems occur after 12 - 18 months after the purchase (immediately after the warranty period) ... The most convenient is a review after 18 months and not after 1 month.
i want to purchase lg g 7 think, can i purchase this mobile, any body suggest me, it is ok to invest on this model of lg???
jrlatorre2, 10 Aug 2018would have been perfect (FOR ME) if it had a bigger battery... 3500mAh would be great. - MIL-S... moreIt last me a full day of streaming with less than an hour to full charge, its still new so that could get worse over time, but I'm really enjoying it atm :)
G series r their best in the line up. The models upto g5 was absolute failure. But from g6 onwards they made a great come back !!!!
jrlatorre2, 10 Aug 2018would have been perfect (FOR ME) if it had a bigger battery... 3500mAh would be great. - MIL-S... moreThe real life battery usage of my G6 is very impressive, usually by 6 pm I am still left with 40%, unless I play heavy games. I compared with my friends s8 while traveling together using GPS, the g6 won by a wide margin.
I am certain LG has really optimized the LGG7 battery life really well but do not understand why the fact is not well reflected with bloggers and websites tests.
MonopodMermaid, 24 Jun 2018Got it yesterday.... you won't be disappointed, I guarantee you!I wasn't disappointed ;) haha
would have been perfect (FOR ME) if it had a bigger battery... 3500mAh would be great. - MIL-STD-810G compliant is above everybody else.
