LG G7 ThinQ: revamped flagship
The tech-giant gave it their all on this device!
After the leaks and waiting, LG has finally released their flagship phone for this year!
Highlights of the LG G7 ThinQ
The rise of ThinQ--- a smarter phone. To start off let's talk about their AI cam mode that automatically adjusts to the best mode for the photo like the usual landscape and wide angle and even a pet mode. It’s also the first phone to have the Google Assistant Button. While it also has the Super Far Field Voice recognition so you can ask Google from up to 16 feet away.
For music or sound experience, they have the Boombox Speaker which amplifies sounds on the inside spaces of the phone. There’s still the 3.5mm headphone jack folks!
How are the initial reviews?
For AndroidAuthority, LG was dead serious about the super brightness mode. The 6.1-in IPS LCD display can go from 500 nits to 1000 nits real quick and does not disappoint with its 3,120x1,440 resolution. Keeping with the trend in other flagship phones, the LG G7 is powered by the ultra-fast Snapdragon 845 processor..
Although they lowered the power of the battery to 3,000mAh compared to the LG G6 battery (not to worry, we have chargers to help you out). For them the most striking feature is the camera’s bright mode which uses pixel binning to turn up the brightness in dark areas.
While Techradar goes into discussing the notch (yes folks, it’s here to stay). This was LG’s way of expanding the the screen ratio to 19.5:9 making way for space to status icons.
To make it more personalized, you can either hide it or choose from different colors to the side of the notch for more fun. It’s quite the mainstream familiar and pleasing smartphone of the year. The LG G7 ThinQ is also available in Raspberry Rose and Moroccan Blue colors they think looks better than the New Platinum Gray color.
While Digital Trends reviews the wide-angle mode of the camera which is very versatile to take 107-degree photos and makes the company one of the only manufacturers to give such spec.
For those in Canada, it just might be your lucky time to buy the phone! You can get a 43-inch 4K TV when you pre-order the device! This only runs until May 31 so Canadians can think twice or thrice of grabby the opportunity. (Still having our fingers crossed that they’d come up with this too for the US!!!)
The release date in the US and Canada is June 1 while preorders start as early as May 24 for some US carriers. Rumor has it, the price in the US may be at $740 with a floor price of $650 based on the LG G6.
I think I’m gonna give this phone a shot!
Excellent! Once the device is released, we’ll be ready to arm your device for the ultimate protection! For sure, we’ll be releasing our signature Ballistic Glass Screen Protector to cover that wide-range screen. And maybe a few more accessories to help you out ;)
