LG G7 Plus ThinQ Brief Review and Pros Cons:

LG has been a slow player in the smartphone market but has maintained the quality it is known for. This time LG has launched the LG G7+ ThinQ which is a budget flagship smartphone and seems to have perfectly delivered in each aspect on the smartphone. As with the latest trend, it has a notch display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 and a very superior camera. Let us find out the complete list of features, specifications in this review of LG G7+ ThinQ.

LG G7 Plus ThinQ comes with a 6.1-inch display which has a Quad HD Plus resolution(1440 x 3120 pixels). Talking about the display quality, it is an HDR screen and has a Dolby Vision Certification. It is amazingly bright which looks gorgeous and provides you with the best picture and visual quality and very punchier colours. On the design side, the front has a notch design which translates to an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 and 564PPI. You get a corning gorilla glass 5 on the back which is sort of a fingerprint magnet but looks a premium smartphone.LG has also added a cloth in the box for cleaning the fingerprint smudges when you get them. There is a rigid aluminium frame in between the front and back given a solid hold to the smartphone. The phone is narrower compared to the standard design in other smartphone and is easy to hold in hand. The notch has an option to be removed if you are not a fan of it. 

On the performance side, LG has left no stone unturned and has made no compromise. LG G7+ ThinQ is powered by the beast Snapdragon 845 smartphone which is seen on the likes of OnePlus 6, Zenfone 5Z etc. The processing is supported with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. G7+ like the other smartphones 845 powered smartphones scored a massive 270000 on the AnTuTu Benchmark. You will never feel short on performance whatsoever you ask this smartphone to do. It has an Adreno 630 GPU that very well enhances your gaming experience and no lag or heating issues could be observed in our usage. So not much to talk on the performance as it can handle everything you throw at it. To expand the storage over the inbuilt 128GB, there is a hybrid sim slot that can expand the storage up to 512 MB.

Coming to the camera of the LG G7 Plus ThinQ, it has a dual 16MP(f/1.6) + 16MP(f/1.9) on the back. The f/1.9 sensor also has a 16mm lens for wide-angle shots and can easily capture about twice the normal frame. Here the camera captures perfect shots having the best in class colour reproduction and crispness in the image and works well in both well lit and low light shots. The portrait shots are also brilliant with proper edge detection. The front camera is an 8MP sensor which also supports bokeh shots, HDR mode etc and though the selfie clicks are really good and cover a lot of details but is a tad below when compared with the likes of the flagship phones like Samsung S9 or S9 Plus. Also, there is an option to vary the amount of blurriness(bokeh) you want to put in the image when it has been clicked.  Overall, the camera impresses us with its quality and features and certainly, LG has done a tremendous task for under 40k smartphone.

LG in this G7 Plus has put a special focus on the audio quality both via the speakers and the audio quality via the headphone jack. Here the speaker is a boombox speaker that is perfectly loud and amplifies the sound. The only disappointment here is the phone does not have a stereo speaker and the earpiece is not being used as a secondary speaker. The audio via the headphone jack is one of the best one compared to any smartphone and if you listen to a lot of music or watch videos, it will totally immerse you in the highest quality audio output. It uses the DTS X technology to deliver the excellent sound experience. LG has also bundled an LG branded in-ear styled earphone which is pretty good and has a top-notch quality.

The battery on this smartphone is rated at 3000 mAh and the box bundles an 18 W fast charger. There is a USB type C on the phone and the battery lasts for a complete day. This is because of the optimization LG has added optimization in the display and has low power mode to save the battery. Though, for a high-end user, the battery life may not last a complete day and charging may be required in between.

The phone runs on Android 8.0 and has an LG custom skin over it. The UI has very little bloatware but the interface looks clunky and cluttery compared to the standard UI seen in the other phones. You would take some time to adjust to the aesthetics of it. Also, LG has been very slow with the Android updates as the phone still runs on the Android 8.0 and not the 8.1 version. There is a separate button in the middle of the right side that by default launches the Google Assistant. The good thing is that they have added the feature to customize the functionality of the button.

Talking about the other features, we feel that it will be wrong calling this smartphone as a budget flagship, given it has all the flagship features seen in the likes of Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, Note 9 etc. Here the LG G7 Plus ThinQ has an IP 68 certification which means it is completely water and dust resistant and will not harm the device. Also, the device supports wireless charging. These are some features which have not been seen in the under 40k pricing. So LG has gone with a perfect pricing of the smartphone this time and introduced the flagship features in the budget flagship price point.
