Our LG G7 ThinQ Review

Unwieldy name aside, the LG G7 ThinQ is a brilliant smartphone. LG might not have taken any big risks or included any particularly innovative features but it really excels in all of the major smartphone catergories. 

LG G7 ThinQ Display 

The ThinQ has an excellent 6.1-inch display which, save for a notch and a very slim bezel at the bottom, reaches all the way across its front. A 19:5:9 aspect ratio is able to take full advantage of the extra room while glossy HDR and a QHD+ resolution work to render everything in crisp, clear detail and LCD panelling ensures all colours appear lovely and bright.  

Although it’s not majorly intrusive, if you really don’t like the notch LG allows you to hide it by turning the space either side, known as the second screen, completely black. Left visible or customized with a lighter colour, the second screen handily houses notification icons for a variety of apps, the time and battery percentage.

Brightness in general for the ThinQ is surprisingly great and definitely above average, but activating Super Bright Mode temporarily ups it to hugely impressive levels so that everything is visible even in direct sunlight. 

LG G7 ThinQ Camera

The ThinQ’s camera setup is packed with plenty of clever software which works almost seamlessly with its two 16MP rear lenses and 8MP front selfie camera to capture really sharp, solid shots that appear nicely vibrant with hardly any background noise. 

Having the AI switch into whichever mode it thinks you need is a nice idea, but unfortunately it’s a bit hit-and-miss. The modes themselves however are all fantastic, particularly Super Bright mode which really helps to boost the quality of darker images and although Portrait mode doesn’t do anything unusual, it performs far better than average to really highlight all of the lovely details in your selfies.

The ability to apply the bokeh effect to whichever degree you like before taking the photo is also incredibly convenient and LG’s version of the wide-angle lens is one of the best yet, as unlike the ones on other high-end smartphones it doesn’t blur the edges of your photo.

LG G7 ThinQ Design

LG haven’t done a great deal to make the ThinQ stand out from the crowd but it’s still quite an attractive smartphone. It’s lightweight unibody is made entirely of Gorilla Glass 5 which affords it both a pleasingly glossy shine and a good amount of durability.

A responsive fingerprint sensor sits on the back of the device just under its dual-camera setup while the power button is back on the right-hand side opposite the two volume keys and the Google Assistant launcher, which intuitively allows you to switch between their different AI-focused features by pressing it down.

It's also IP68 water-resistant so will thankfully survive an accidental dunk in the bath and has a headphone jack and USB Type-C slot at the bottom. The other remarkable feature on the front of the device is a very powerful boombox speaker which produces a fantastically rich, bassy sound.

LG G7 ThinQ Performance 

Powering the ThinQ is a dynamic Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip and 4GB of RAM which might not be quite as much as what’s found in other premium smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus and OnePlus 6 both have 6GB for example, but it’s easily enough to run any graphically-intensive game without lag and make navigating around feel wonderfully smooth and slick. 

The ThinQ available with either 64GB or a sizeable 128GB of internal storage, but if you’re somebody who takes a lot of photos or has a huge music library this can be expanded out via the microSD card slot. 

LG have opted for the smaller 3,000mAh battery over the 3,330mAh found some of their devices in order to keep the ThinQ looking sleek and it’s pretty efficient allowing you to get the end of the day on a single charge. 

LG G7 ThinQ Features

Google has confirmed that the ThinQ will receive the new Android 9 Pie update at some point, but for now it’s still running Android 8.0 Oreo. It’s still a wonderfully fluid and intuitive OS and lots of neat little tricks like Picture-in-a-Picture, Doze and an Always On Display. 

LG’s decision to include their own collection of apps alongside Google’s vastly superior set does seem a bit pointless, although you can always hide them away in a folder to prevent adding unnecessary bloat to an otherwise pleasingly clean interface.

Two of the most convenient features are LG’s customizable Smart Bulletin, giving you access to all kinds of information like your calendar and step count by swiping left, and the next-generation SmartThinQ app which allows you to remotely control other LG appliances from your smartphone. 

How much is the LG G7 ThinQ?

The ThinQ will set you back around £600 so unless you’ve got quite a sizeable smartphone budget we recommend that you opt for a pay monthly contract.

LG G7 ThinQ Our Verdict

LG’s latest smartphone is a fantastically solid all-rounder. It’s not quite as flashy or cutting-edge as the top offerings from Samsung and Apple but still boasts some really excellent features like a beautifully vivid QHD+ display, an impressive level of brightness, a glossy 16MP dual camera setup with a wide angle lens and pleasingly fast performance.
