LG has in the past years struggled in the smartphone scene and with the not too successful LG G6 last year, here is the year’s follow up. The LG G7 ThinQ is their new flagship with the latest tech and trends like a number of other flagship this year. While the ThinQ added might sound out of place, it signifies the presence of LG’s AI platform. Similar to some flagships recently launched, the phone has a notch on top and a peculiar premium glass build. Does it provide good competition against the likes of Samsung Galaxy S9, Huawei P20 Pro, Google Pixel 2 and iPhone X.

Design and Display

The LG G7 ThinQ is a flagship and it does look the part but that is about just what it does. Clasped by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on both sides that tapers into the curve of the corners, The dual cameras are arranged at the upper center half of the rear with the flash is vertically placed at the side in a similar way to the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the fingerprint reader below the camera. Facing you is a notch that can be hidden placing black bars around it and a chin at the bottom that is a bit too obvious sort of defeating the purpose of the notch. At the left side, there is a button that automatically launch Google Assistant and when pressed twice opens Google Lens.

Its display prowess is evident the moment the screen lights up with a perfect colour balance and an average maximum brightness of 500nits. However, there is a Super Bright feature that takes brightness up to a staggering 1000nits but only for 3 minutes. Size is also no issue as that of the smartphone extends up to 6.1-inch and resolution at 1440 x 3120 pixels.

Battery and Camera

On paper, the battery is somewhat on the low side and definitely doesn’t sound like much considering the display size and high resolution. However, the processor inside has proven to be a power efficient one and coupled with LG’s power conserving implementations you would be able to get enough time from the 3, 000mAh battery. There would also be Qi wireless charging on board and Quick Charge 3.0 too, although the latter is definitely faster than the former.

Not much change is seen in the camera structure on the smartphone with just about the same dual rear camera as before. Up in the notch, there is a single 8MP camera with an f/1,9 aperture and wide angle lens suitable for taking both selfies and wefies. On the other hand, you’ve got two 16MP cameras each having an f/1.9 and f/1.6 with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) alongside PDAF.. Artificial intelligence is the buzz word when it comes to photography nowadays and as a flagship it does have one come with an AI Cam that has 19 scene recognition. According to each scene, it applies some changes to the settings of the camera to soothe the scene being captured.

Hardware and Software

In the aspect of hardware, this is what really makes a flagship and the LG G7 ThinQ has the most powerful Qualcomm chipset available. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor keep things running smoothly no matter what you throw at the smartphone without any glitch at all. There’s also the ‘Boom box’ sound system where the whole phone resonates the sound rather than the mono speaker at the bottom only.

The rest of the picture includes a 4GB RAM and 64GB built-in storage model as well as a more premium 6GB RAM variant that has 128GB of storage space. Storage can be increased to 512GB and runs Android 8.0 Oreo on the two models.
