LG G7 ThinQ is proper high-end device indeed. But I think its brother, the LG V35 ThinQ seem more like a premium version of G7. More expensive too.
Anonymous, 06 Jul 2018its the same price as a much superior S9. What is LG thinking ?"superior S9"
It's just your opinion ffs.
Of course you will be biased since you think that way. Looking in general, both are great in their own ways, and it's not like the G7 ThinQ doesn't deserve its price, considering it also have some good things that your so-called "superior S9" doesn't.
Anonymous, 05 Jul 20183,000 mAH battery + no stereo speakers = forget it.Battery can be two things; small but well-optimized to last long or big but unoptimized for the phone
Speaker can be two things: single mono but loud and great-sounding or dual stereo but quiet and not that good quality for such a setup
Sadly, this phone gets the two latters
Nick Tagataka, 06 Jul 2018The difference is that your Mi A1 sounds like a crap, and this one doesn't. I tested G7 out in... moreExcept you're wrong in that aspect of saying the Mi A1 sounds crap.
I approve this for my dad has one, and it has an incredible speaker that definitely sounds good, not only for its price, but basically as a smartphone speaker.
Compared to my Redmi 5 Plus, it sounds nearly identical, maybe my phone is slightly clearer but slightly quieter, and my phone already competes well with a flagship speaker, specifically the Galaxy S8 (TechUtopia, if I remember, compared the S8's speaker to the Redmi 5 Plus, and maybe even to the Mi A1).
As for the G7 ThinQ, I don't doubt that it sounds really great. It's a flagship phone after all, and such quality is just right to be expected. My sister had a G4 in the past and its speaker was also loud and great-sounding, but since then they never really did much better until this G7 ThinQ.
Mar19, 06 Jul 2018This is your average flagship. No new innovation's whatsoever. LG7 plain jane, yikes! Not ever... morenowadays camera doesnt matter, any flagship has good camera. not everyone is photographer tho
Don't forget bootloop insurance :)
Wish I got that with my g5...
stil happy with my v30 which i find better in many ways honestly.
Sam, 04 Jul 2018My MI A1 loudspeaker can go upto 90db as gsmarena showed in review without any fancy marketing... moreThe difference is that your Mi A1 sounds like a crap, and this one doesn't. I tested G7 out in the store and holy cow, this phone has easily the best speaker I've ever heard. Too bad that the Boombox becomes only active when it is placed on a flat surface, otherwise it sounds quite a lot worse or even tinnier than any other flagships with a normal speaker (I was surprised to find out that it's actually worse than Galaxy S8 when you're holding it in your hand). But still, even in that state, it would be better than your Mi for sure.
"but when it comes to the camera - the P20 Pro is a king in what it does."
No. Just no. The P20 Pro IS indeed a very good camera phone, it has some nice features like the 3x/5x zoom, but by no means is it that much better than the competition as to be worthy of the title of "king". NO.
"....Needless to say, many opinions were expressed against the controversial notch, only for LG to release the notched phone anyway."
For that alone, I hope this phone fails. FU LG!
Dimitris766, 04 Jul 2018No one should buy phones with such lousy batteries.This is your average flagship. No new innovation's whatsoever. LG7 plain jane, yikes! Not everyone is an audiophile. Cameras should have been better!
This phone's "unmatched aspect" is a con, not a pro. 18:9 is better, and 16:9 (let alone 16:10) is much better.
Romie Lee, 05 Jul 2018Lol LG is using its own ideas like that so called "notch" from the iphone ? They are no longer... moreCompletly agree that perhaps they cannot say anything about being original when talking about display design. However, the display quality is great and best lcd i have seen so far. But what about the other things that stand out against the flow, like audio jack, great audio quality with quad dac, boombox implementation ( trust me you hear it), an ui that even if bad compared to stock android still moves as if it is not there (flow and snappiness) and sticking to what nearly all have named best camera combination on the market (2d super wide)? You don't like the notch..hide it.
