Arnolf Mendoza THIS!!!! G2 was amazing until the screen lottery issues popped up. G3 was amazing until the overheating and battery issues popped up (thank God it had removable battery). G4...now that's another story...wish it didn't have bootloop issues bc that was the phone that was supposed to be the Galaxy killer
Hey Lanh, Sorry to say but LG without doing a curved edge screen, or puts an Apple on the rear, is gonna be in the shadow of both. Not my opinion but there are just too many isheep and edge o files. I'm sure LG doesn't mind,, I can bet they're doing just fine in sales.
Saw tbe earpiece setup on another vid, and not impressed. As for the box reflect bottom speaker,, we've known for years if u put any phone in a bowl, the sound is amped. Guess id have to hear to believe,,,in person. Is the g7 plus a 5.9 display? Yes if it runs 650, that's not a bad initial price,,that will lower hopefully after 6 months or a year. I never buy a first run device. Not a notch fan at all,,. Having to squeeze everything to the notch area is crazy. But seems people are liking it enough. Could have done a bigger battery though, and eliminate the boom box chamber, and put in front facing stereo speakers,,,yes! But not LG. Been asking support for years why no stereo speakers,,, just never seems to happen. Thanks Lanh
I fell inlove and then the battery capacity broke my dam heart. A phone THIS POWERFUL in 2018 and you put a 3000mah NON REMOVABLE battery in it???? LG why you keep breaking my heart? You do something good and then you manage to mess it all up at the same time. I have the V20 and it has a 3200mah REMOVABLE battery which is much better. LG come on. Don't let me down with the V40. I BEG of you 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭
Trevor Howell my little sister had an LG like a year ago and also had it for a year anyways she always had it in a case she lost the case dropped it a few times in the week of losing the case and by the second week without out the case the phone cracked.
LG has been making beast phones, G6, V30, G7, and now the new V35.. I have the V30, been on SAMSUNGs for years, and I can say that I like LG much more, I've been missing a lot on SAMSUNG, they are not bad, but LG is just better for me..
I like LG phones. I own G5 but in my opinion the 3,000 mAh battery will hold this phone (G7) back. My requirement is 3500 mAh as the bare minimum, it should be the standard in phones this powerful and big. Such a shame. They are keep shooting themselves in the foot. They should've increased the battery size. Wasted opportunity. Overal it's a good phone.
On vacation, a local company makes Koa wood phone cases with Hawaiian designs carved into them , best looking cases I've ever seen , my whole family buys one for (S9 plus) but my dad because he has a G6 and this company does not make LG cases at all yet there are iPhone 5! Yea iPhone 5 cases. He walked out saying , my next phone will be a Samsung 😂, common LG makes your phones competition, having a phone needs to be a full package so people don't feel left out owning one, Market your products!
I gave this video a like JUST because you listed the specs early on. I'm use to this in reviews, but for some reason less and less reviewers are doing this. So thanks for not making me go through the vid for something that might have never come
Speaking as someone who has been selling phones for the better part of 5 years, it's not that people don't consider the g7. Ever since the g3, year after year, LG phones have been exceptionally unrealible. Speaking from personal experience, and sales people in many different markets in Canada and the US, we generally don't recommend them based on previous customers experiences. G4 was hit and miss, g5 was more miss then hit, g6 was better but a few still had issues. G7? We will see. (None OLED is nice) That non re-mappable AI button is a big mark off, and notches, seriously use a phone with a notch, it's not a big deal.
One thing is certain, no matter how good LG makes a phone the public will always say that Samsung is way better even though the only thing better is the Amoled display and even when compared to One Plus who, by the way, has come up with a glass on glass phone with a notch and no wireless charging or waterproofing will always get reviewed better. It's not the cost either because in 3 months time the LG G7 will drop to $500.00 USD and it will still be panned by critics stating adjectives like "bootloop" and ugly design. I will probably never buy an LG phone again but after owning three of them I have never run into a bootloop problem and they have never failed to deliver. My problem with LG is the time they take to update the software.
Oba Kodjo Since you have the V30, I think it is best to wait for the V40, which will be better than G7. At least it should. There is not much difference between V30 and G7. I think you should wait, but whatever suits you. :)
Splitting finger print scanner and power button turns it into almost every other phone on the market (huawei, xiaomi, etc), it is much more convinient to have them at one place, also having power button at the back was LG distinguishing feature.
They added "assistant" button, seemingly not looking at feedback samsung had recieved when they did it, LG just blindly copied it.
Adding a screen notch is last nail in it's coffin, right after 3000 mah battery that is less than in G6, were they actually high when they decided it was a good idea to make that phone ? Also not like notchless, thin bezeled phones can't be produced, xiaomi mi mix 2 is just amazing looking and without any notches.
I'm just salty LG didn't give G6 the "screen color" menu option, so if the screen is too cold or warm for you - deal with it, supposedly it's "calibrated" from factory and should be good as is, but the thing has a cold purple hue to it, and not just my G6. I'm still considering upgrading to V30, but I'll probably get a note 8 or mix 2 instead, LG really managed to screw everything up.
