LG has been making satisfying phone since 2017. G6 was good, so was V30, and now G7 looks pretty good as well. Yeah it has a notch, but that notch carries a proper selfie camera (which is a first time for LG). I'm cool with it.

Does the dual sim model have a separate slot for the memory card ? or hybrid like many others ?
antifanboyism, 02 May 2018the camera interface is oddly similar to samsung's ... All smartphone's camera interface are just like iOS though...
Not a bad phone but very uninspiring. Very boring. Faceless. Will sell much worse than G6 unless LG drops price very significantly.

LG is still not improving, instead they are falling a lot these days. My friend has a G6. He said the bootloop cannot be fixed because the whole software is dead. It needs to be replaced, but LG didn't respond to his problem yet. >:<
The last LG phone I owned was the G3. I really loved that phone, except for the modest battery life. That's what's kept me from buying any LG phones ever since. Fast battery charging, for me, is no substitute for a battery that can last a minimum of 1.5 days. My preferred OEM these days is Xiaomi, precisely because of the longer battery life. It's not a massive inconvenience to charge a phone every day. It's the principle of the thing. Why should I have to bother with that when other phones last more than a day and some 2 days?
They already disappointed me with 1/3" mid range camera quality sensor, and they're doing it again this year.
I remember the LG G4 when released. Its camera was way ahead of its time, even the Galaxy S6 series and Note 5 failed to be known as great camera smartphones.
Now what? Oh yeah they're going back. They fixed bootlooped, but introduced newer problems as well.
LG then : We will not use G7 as our next flagship name.
LG today : introducing LG G7 ThinQ
As expected no information about the size of the sensors... one of the most important data in the camera... Interesting know that the new panel has more leds for drain energy from the battery. And again, no information about the duration of the battery... I'll be funny watch how many months they'll need to release Android P on these phone. The Oreo update of the G6 started these week 9 MONTHS after being released.
For a flagship this phone is really bad !
- very small LCD display with notch . (I only care about the 5.2 16/9 equivalent since that is what I'll watch videos on)
- very small battery . Like for real , 3000 mAh ?
Please tell me they at least got the price right.
Gone are the days fo the Nexus devices, LG is getting way behind the competion. I mean, Why would I choose an LG over an Asus ? Or even a Xiaomi?
i know with Samsung i paid more but i have top notch sepcs, or less with one Plus or even Xiaomi. If I value camera and UX, I choose Huawei, video i´d go for a Sony.
The 2018 question for me is, why would I choose an LG? Even the new upcoming Nokias would sell the same for probably much less than LG.

I'll be following this as it potentially checks some of the boxes that Sony, Samsung, Pixel and HTC have not. For starters, 16mp cameras instead of the disappointing 12 on the S9+. Yes, you read that right; I bout and returned an S9+ mostly because the camera had less detail than a 3+ year old Note 4. Second, the bright display and loud stereo speakers. I'd love to not have to pack an extra speaker when traveling on short trips. Then there's the expanded audio on any headphones. I also like the general design and sturdiness. And last point is that LG didn't give into dumping the SD card slot or the jack. There's no real reason a modern phone can't include these other than manufacturer greed; trying to force you to purchase their unnecessary accessories.
Of course there might be deal killers lurking behind the headlines. I'm not a huge fan of the notch, but at least it can be hidden. Price might be a factor too. Likewise, getting saddled with only 4gb on the US version or cameras that don't really live up to their specs. I guess I'll just have to wait for the reviews once it actually goes on sell.

The only thing if it was a bit smaller, even with the full screen usage ratio is still hard to handle with one hand...
Unfortunately, it's already out of steam...They delayed all this while for nothing... No wow factor... A plain old V30 is more enticing.
as usual, I like your video. The phone looks very promising with very good specs. I had the G6 and the V30 and can say that they were both very good phones. The notch is not an issue as it can be hidden. Time and tests will tell what impact the new type of screen will have on the battery. Somehow, I feel a bit sceptical when I read only 3000 mAh. The name ThinQ sounds very strange to me and I wish LG had come out with a BETTER name.
