LG G7 ThinQ review: A hidden gem?

It seems LG has the knack of pushing out phones that end up with nothing more than the “underrated” title getting slapped on it. The G7 ThinQ is no exception. I purchased this phone myself, used it as my main phone for a couple weeks, and I genuinely believe it’s something worth checking out mainly because of its competitive feature set and recent price drops!

    does this guy even know that the setings menu in this phone can be changed from tabs to list view, also there is a home and appdroer  that comes in the phone. I say LG UX is way way better than stock, Samsung, all chiness garbage UI excluding 1+

    I was highly considering buying this phone but in my job I need a protective case. What I didn't realize was that the fingerprint reader is on the backside of the phone. Which is the dumbest thing I've ever heard of because, correct me if i'm wrong but, I can't use a case and use the reader at the same time. Super frustrating. Thanks for the review so I know now.

    Got this phone a month ago. Its ace. Some mention that battery is not massive, but I manage to get 2 days out of it with average use. The audio dac is awesome. The screen ratio makes it easier to use with one hand. It's ip rated. And I managed to get it for 300 British pounds in sales. Pocophone move over…

    I switched providers, and traded in my iPhone 6s Plus. I got the G7 for $75 with the trade in. I was nervous about going back to droid, and switching from the iPhone… But this phone is superior by far, so far. My iPhone never ran out of battery, but the light this puts out, and the POWER of the speaker are phenomenal.

    Hidden jem? Maybe except for two critical flaws. 1. NO removable battery. Yeah yeah everybody is doing it. That doesn't make it a good design enhancement. Only if you are an incompetent, clueless engineer. The G5 had one it was great. 2. Slippery as a blood sucking leech. Put it on your desk and it WILL magically slide 6" off the edge and onto the floor. Great. And you WILL drop it as it slides out of your hand unless you have tentacles with the accompanying suction cups. Of course you can get a protective cover but if the device needs one so badly for safe daily use in areas other than on a space walk if should effing come with one.

    Bought it for 350 Pounds (450 bucks) on sale, was looking for a phone than ticks all the boxes and competes with Chinese phones on a price… Very happy.

    The camera processing software isn't good in auto. Sometimes shots are out of focus. The noise reduction filter destroys all the detail in the image. Same hardware as the V30 but the software is different.

    I don't really think the speaker is that great but maybe is just my unit. Yes, it gets loud but it lacks clarity and base. The boom box feature does really work.

    The battery is good enough. I'm ok with it.

    Everything else is pretty solid.
