LG G7 ThinQ launched

    LG are today set to finally release the oft delayed, re-imagined, re-developed, re-leaked G7 phone, and they've added their ThinQ AI technology to the camera.

LG-G7-3.jpgThe "confirmed" features of the G7 ThinQ are:

  • 6.1 inch QHD+ "Full Vision Super Bright" display
  • Snapragon 845
  • 4GB / 6GB RAM
  • 64 / 128 GB ROM
  • Stereo speakers with Dolby DTS Surround Sound & "Boombox audio"
  • Quad-DAC
  • Wireless Charging
  • "not a hair wider" than the G6

With the launch now upon us, and the phone "official"; there's more of the little details coming out. It seems that LG have made a huge jump from where the G6 was to where the G7 is; and even compared to the V30 flagship from late last year, there's a reasonable upgrade of specs (it could be argued more than Samsung did with the S8 - S9 upgrade).

LG are making quite a thing of the new audio / speaker features in the G7, stating:

The LG G7 ThinQ has a “Boombox Speaker.” The phone uses its inner space as a resonance chamber to “amp up the bass and deliver a premium, loud and room-filling audio experience.”

The phone also has “Super Far-Field Voice Recognition.” According to LG, the G7 will be capable of hearing the user from a further distance, and it will pick up the user’s voice even in noisy places.

The LG G7 has a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC, making it the first G series device to have a Quad DAC*. It also has 7.1 channel DTS:X 3D Surround Sound.

User Feedback


3,000mAh non-removable battery. Major fail there.

Nobody cares about AI. Some but not many will buy because of the speaker and DAC, but many won't because of the notch.

Externally it's identical to the Huawei P20 (Pro)

Is someone having a fire sale on notched screens because everyone is using them?

The V35 ThinQ (which is due to be launched very soon) is essentially a non-notch version of the G7 ThinQ, albeit allegedly with a P-OLED screen.

It will be interesting to see how the battery (that's the same as the Samsung S8 / S9) copes in day to day use. From experience, my S8 can't cope with one day's use; yet my V30 (which has a 3300 mAh battery) rarely gets below 40%.
