LG G7 ThinQ review: Plans, pricing and specs

Last updated:  

The LG G7 ThinQ is a great upgrade to the LG G6, but against other flagships, it can't help but feel uninspiring.

  • Great audio features
  • Wide-angle lens opens up photographic possibilities
  • Snapdragon 845 performs well
  • Ordinary design
  • Low battery life for a premium handset
  • Low-light camera performance compares poorly

LG G7 ThinQ

LG's G series phones have long represented its flagship ambitions, but in 2018, the South Korean manufacturer took a bit of a pause in its ambitions. Instead of launching the LG G7 ThinQ at Mobile World Congress, it instead unveiled the ThinQ version of the LG V30. It took its time to release its true 2018 flagship, but while the results are undeniably premium, they're not as exciting or revolutionary as we might have hoped for.


Design

  • Includes a "notch" for the front camera.
  • Headphone jack is still thankfully present.

Camera

  • Wide angle lens makes it a good choice for landscape choices.
  • AI mode helps improve photo scenes, but overall performance doesn't exceed other models.

Performance

  • Snapdragon 845 impresses with great app performance.
  • Good audio for both headphones and as its own speaker.

Battery life

  • Lighter design means less battery space.
  • Supports fast charging, which you'll probably need.

Verdict

  • It's LG's best phone, but the rest of the premium pack is just that little bit better.
  • LG's moving in the right direction, but it needs its flagship phone to stand out more.
