The LG G7 ThinQ is the latest smartphone from LG Electronics, currently on pre-order but should be in stores by end of the May. It comes in Aurora Black and Platinum colors with a 64 GB internal storage capacity.
With a fierce competition for customer retention and growth among the smartphone segment, most mobile phone producers especially those running on the Android platform are making sure consumers get the best and more out of their devices. Even though, within this segment, Samsung is bent on maintaining the lead, LG, with its G7 ThinQ, seems to be telling competitors ranking higher than it to have a rethink on their positions as its still gaining grounds and aims to woo more consumers to its sides soonest.
The LG G7 tagged ThinQ, portrays a solid build with an appealing design, with novel features like a louder speaker, an extra powerful AI camera and possessing the brightest of displays across LG’s arsenal of mobile devices. The LG G7 also possesses a dedicated Google Assistant button like its predecessors, a unique feature on an android phone. The only downside consumers might find appalling would be the mediocre battery life and not-so-super AI cam.
A good look at the G7’s design portrays a shrill rectangle with rounded edges fitted with a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on the back and front (to help withstand an inadvertent thump) with a notch that allows the display of the 6.1in LCD screen to show from one edge to the other edge. There’s an easy-to-reach fingerprint sensor just beneath the cameras. The customary Lock/volume buttons as well as the unique Google Assistant key are mounted to the side of the phone with a 3.5mm headphone jack configured on the bottom of the device.
The Super Bright Display feature with a mammoth 1000 nits, has made the LG G7 to stand out tall amongst others and is really helpful while using your device outdoors on sunny days. Similar to the iPhone X and Huawei P20, the G7 also has a notch, centered at the top, which some argue it smears the beauty of the device, but there is an inherent feature that is called a New Second Screen which can serve as a way to hide the notch as it fills the area with a gradient or black colored bar and blends it into the background.. Just like in previous LG models, the second screen portrays phone indicators like the battery power level and signal strength as well as notification symbols.
The camera hardware features a dual-lens 16MP rear camera with an f/1.6 aperture normal lens, configured with an ultra-wide viewing angle (f/1.9 wide angle lens) and AI software that tends to study subjects, persons, animals etc. and adapt to settings to snap optimum photos. The front facing camera was improved to 8MP from previous models.
Another unique feature of the LG G7 is its Boombox speaker that can thrust out loud and reverberating rhythms. With audio specifications as a DTS 3X sound and 32-bit HiFi Quad DAC, you would be sure to experience a 3D surround sound.
The LG G7 got a good upgrade over the G6, running the latest Android Oreo and is fitted with the flagship Snapdragon 845 chipset; enhanced with a 4GB RAM ensuring optimal processing speed, 64GB internal storage and a microSD for expandable storage.
The battery power is a sheer 3000mAh, which can still offer an all-day longevity span, thanks to cutting-edge software artifices while spotting a QuickCharge 3.0 wired charging (giving speedy recharge capacity) and a wireless charging feature.
In all, the LG G7 offers the typical enhancements of top smartphones in its segment, with unique compelling features as the robust new fitted speaker capabilities, a dedicated Google Assistant button, and a screen display that can get exceedingly bright. Even though, we expected the battery capacity to be much larger than what it comes with, LG compensates for its complacency with innovative software that can allow you enjoy all-day endurance span of battery power. For now, the LG G7 might just be LG’s finest flagship smartphone in years.
