I am not convinced on this one. On one hand yes - for LG its quite an improvement, but on the other hand it's not, if we compare it to the rest. Honestly, adding a notch is not the best thing. I was so frustrated with the current market, I even ended up making a video about that.
The only thing LG has going for this one is the interesting speaker and the wide angle lens. But that's about it.
Dat Notch... ugh.
Better processor but a smaller battery. Buggy camera for now. Iconic power button is out. Non changeable exclusive Google button. Quad dac and a brighter screen are the only pluses I see over the G6. And for sure this device will be overpriced as the IPhone X which is a no go for me. I'll stay withe G6 for now.
3000mah... With 1000 nits to be proud of... And no stereo speaker??... What is lg thinking... Omg... Cant even keep up to the trend.. Is a no for me... Even htc learn to keep up the trend... I will wait for the htc u 12....
Cool phone but just not feeling that notch at the top...resembles too much like the iPhone. Was really hoping for a different look. Other than that, seems like LG is still doing great, can't wait for more updates and to see the final pruduct!
I don't really care about the notch. What caught my attention is the DAC and enhanced speaker on this phone in this era of missing headphone jacks. So many people screaming about the notch when the attention should be on these audio features not commonly found elsewhere nowadays.
Or One Can Watch Flossy Carter's And He'll Certainly Clear Up Everything About Why Only A 3000nAh Battery In 2018 On A Flagship Device As This Splendid Phone...He Certainly Gave Me A Better Understanding...I Nearly Complained/Questioned It.
It would be the perfect phone FOR ME, if it just wasn't that huge. There was a time when I hoped that the thin bezels trend would bring smaller devices again but instead they just maked the displays like crazy big.
In addition how am I supposed to interact probably, one handed with the top bar (notification area, quick settings,...), which is one of the most actions to perform, with the 18:9 aspect ratio. It's like one kilometre away.
Lg is like the really good business that is run by 40-50 year olds that wear suites and drive Mitsubishi. What they need is a little bit of flare and young people to market it right, change the skin, then you will have a phone that can be compared to apple and samsung, if not better. Love the camera
I saw flossy Carter's review or first impressions of this phone now I'm not getting this phone because LG takes way too long with their updates just like Samsung, but from everything I've seen from this video and flossy Carter video this phone is great. Just one problem why only put a 3000 mah battery in it tho that doesn't make sense.
Double on the screen to unlock with reaching for the power button in the back was a very convenient feature. Still don't understand why LG decided to shelf the buttons in the back since the G4.. Would love to see that making a come back.
Looks like any of the other myriad Chinese iPhone X knockoffs. No point in having a notch if you’re not going to push the display all the way to the edges. Otherwise just do what Samsung does and put thin bezels in the top and bottom.
I refuse to buy any phone with a notch. It's stupid that they put the power button on the side. There's no point for the google button, when you can just bring it up with your voice. It adds another button on the side for me to mistakenly push when I take it out of my pocket.
Rear design is almost identical to Mate9, it think LG will need to shut down their mobile operations. It was rumoured that they went back to the drawing board to redesign G7, it's crazy that they came back with this and the specs :/ got a P20Pro recently, Huawei's doing all the right things I think
Notch ThinQ.. poor execution of design..
why would u have a notch if u have a chin? i can forgive apple's notch because it has no chin but this?!! WTF LG!!!!! choose only 1.. its either a bezel(top, bottom or both) or notch..
This year I won't be buying the LG g7 this year
The notch is ugly
I rather have a phone that's taller over having something blocking the screen
Maybe if they remove it in the next generation I might think about it
surpised! but in a good way. this is way better than i expected. LG impressed me this time with a phone full of features that are (mostly) practical, and making the screen taller for the notch is an acceptable choice although i would 9/10 times just hide it. i only wish we had something like a 3200ma battery and perhaps a combo of a slightly more zoomed main camera and a slightly narrower wide angle for better zoom and better bokeh mode cuz too wide lenses dont do that well
