Eh. Kudos to LG for having the 3.5mm jack. That's all I got. Everything else here is a fail.
So they asked people about the notch on Reddit, got props for asking and an ovetwhelming, utter hate of the concept of notches by the users, and LG deleted their question, to the confusion of everyone participating. A week later their device WITH a notch leaks. Lol.
FeederEater, 02 Apr 2018Well, you will probably need to wait for some new tech that will hide camera under the screen ... moreNo, Apple was not first to use the notch. It was the Essential PH-1, released 6 months ahead of the iPhone X.
MG7, 02 Apr 2018I hate the bottom chin more than the notch itself.It's the smallest chin of any Android phone.
why all phones have a notch this days ? i jusst hate it.. guess i`ll be stuck with my s8 for a long time now

Notch is something experimental and its good that Apple was first to use it. If LG was the first one, people would have definitely said a lot worse things then now. Notch is the only way for now (to make bezels smaller and screen bigger) and i am not expecting it to last long, about 2 years at max is my estimation. You must take in account that they do realise that we dont like notch, but there are only 2 ways. To use normal display or use notched displays until they invent something better. So you can either use notch and get comments like "Ugly" etc, or use normal displays and still get called by some, "Old" etc
I believe the phone looks great lets see how good the screen will be.
Anonymous, 02 Apr 2018I donÂ’t think there is any phone even now other than iPhone X that has no chinthere isn't any phone even now that has no chin, even the iphoneX. It's because of the display connector at the bottom. iphoneX's chin looks better because the side bezels are as thick as the chin.
won't they learn anything form other's mistakes?!!
No AI button!(bixby fail)!
Innovate with things that make sense and that people use, like Huawai 3 camera set up. Oled screens, bigger batteries, dual speakers.
I won't buy a phone with a notch. OEMs should start readling the mobile review websites and peoples comments. Nobody likes notches!

New panels in development incorporate efficiency improvements, while older variants are usually just punched out for profit without the R&D expense of a redesign.
Their RGBW smart TVs are horrible. They lack contrast and clarity and look washed out as f*ck. If this thing has RGBW, I will not switch from AMOLED (S7) to this crap.
I get the notch. You simply need space for camera, sensors and so on. But why on earth does it need to have that chin at the bottom?

Although I hate the notch, we'll have to accept it guys. Unfortunately, the notch has come here to stay for some time.
The G7 looks a great all-arounder.
if this thing launches with a notch that will officially be the end of LG for me
