This could be the best device on the market and I would still go for a notchless phone like mi mix 2s or vivo or samsung or razer phone etc. I'm a 50/50 person. Im 50% in for the hardware, which is the same old guff usually, and 50% in for design. And this notchdesign is totally ruining the goold old slab of glass design. See the n900 is still one of my fav designs for a phone out there. No buttons, no bells, no whistles, everything hidden. I love the find x for tributing this design and, would go for it if it wasnt 1000€+. These notches dont make people buy this phone anyway, they mostly buy brands, not phones...stop this trend already.
yuromonomoto, 04 Jul 2018poor rewiev ..in other rewiev lg g7 speaker is over 110db loud , screen has over 1020 nits.. etc"Naturally, we've put the speaker through our loudspeaker test and we measured some quite high numbers. And mind you, we've excluded the occasional peaks which went beyond 90db", the word "beyond" already gave u a hint that it have a possibility of reaching 110dB, besides different smartphone reviewers have different source for testing, so results may differ. The display is just 80nits from their advertised 1000nits, so why complain that it is a poor review? U wouldn't even give a shit to that in real life because what u are getting is the brightest IPS LCD display, or should I say the brightest display in a smartphone, hmm?

Dimitris766, 04 Jul 2018No one should buy phones with such lousy batteries.Say that to HTC U12+
Everytime I read about the G7 ThinQ, I always say to myself that this phone is remarkably boring. It's just a run of the mill flagship among the rest. Let's not bother buying a G series and always look forward for the V series.
Rimas2, 04 Jul 2018Well, while camera performance looks disappointing at first, even more so in low light studio ... moreNot really... The thing is Super Bright Mode on G7 works in a completely different way as Huawei's Night Mode and thus they serve for different purposes. Super Bright Mode is simply for avoiding the underexposure at the expense of resolution, while Night Mode is more like a dynamic range enhancer + extreme low light mode depending on the scene, using multi-frame stacking to lower the noise.
Actually Super Bright Mode is more comparable to P20 Pro's regular 10MP auto mode since both uses pixel binning to lower the noise level... But in the end P20 Pro would perform better if you use right mode settings due to larger sensor size and better processing.
Well, while camera performance looks disappointing at first, even more so in low light studio setup, I'd argue that f.ex. low light Super Bright outdoor camera shots are very much comparable to Huawei P20 Pro's. LG's noise reduction algorithms work quite well, actually. Wide camera shots are way better than they were. All things considered, battery life is OK for an LCD too. That being said and considering the price I would go for a V30 instead at this point in time.
Geric.770, 04 Jul 2018The wide angle camera also doesn't have OIS until now even for 2 year old key feature.
It is ... moreYou don't really need OIS for the wide angle camera.
Its wideness is its own hardware stabilization.
Anonymous, 04 Jul 2018Where did you see XZ2p can do 4s?
Impossible without more dram. The imx380-derivated does no... moreI think I read somewhere that it can do it at a longer period of time, and I did believe it since it was a reliable source.
I forgot it already, but I guess it's not true after all, my mistake. Sorry for that hehe
Seems to be a good device, except for the battery life. With LG's track-record for updates and boot-looping devices, I wouldn't buy this is if I was looking for a new phone now.
No one should buy phones with such lousy batteries.

Lg is the worst manufacturer when it comes to after-sale-service, never again Lg.
HTC One Max had fps on the back before LG... GSMArena, you should know that...
Sinikad28, 04 Jul 2018Flagship phone with a headphone jack. That puts it on the short list automatically. Indeed ! Great to see
Geric.770, 04 Jul 2018The wide angle camera also doesn't have OIS until now even for 2 year old key feature. It is ... moreThe wide angle lens doesn't need OIS because you can do low shutter speeds without camera shake at such a short focal length.
I was tempted to buy this phone, for all honesty. ^^; however the endurance is a little dealbreaker
