Android smartphones this year have already approached the point where at any time I see a new one, which I can not help disappointing, but I shake my head. Yes, it’s about the cutout. The sad part is it’s getting worse. LG, a Korean manufacturer that is not Samsung, launched its latest flagships with two simultaneous events in New York and Seoul. Ironically, it’s LG G7 ThinQ and LG G7 + ThinQ. LG really ThinQ this through? In fairness, the LG G7 ThinQ and the Plus version have everything you expect from the flagship of 2018. They have the latest processor, enough RAM, good camera, ugly OEM skin, cutout (because it’s a feature now) and some wallpaper for your pacification.
For those who remain in the dark after describing this vague description, the LG G7 ThinQ and G7 + ThinQ both have Snapdragon 845 SoC. The display is also a 6.1-inch LCD panel with a diagonal of 19.5: 9 3120 x 1440 pixels. LG does provide an opportunity to disable the notch like Huawei, but there is a key difference. While Huawei went with AMOLED for its P20, LG still adheres to the LCD. Therefore, when the cutout is disabled, you can still see the display quite clearly, given its backlight, unlike AMOLED. Is LG really a ThinQ?
Android 8.1 Oreo has not worked for a long time, and if you know that the preview of the Android P developer was also disabled. However, LG’s flagships come with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box. The only difference between these two devices is RAM and memory. There is 4 GB of RAM LPDDR4X and 64 GB of internal memory on the G7 ThinQ and 6 GB of RAM plus 128 GB of internal memory on the G7 + ThinQ. Both ThinQ devices support expandable storage of up to 2 TB.
The dual camera, mounted on the rear panel, has a 16-megapixel primary wide-angle sensor with f / 1.9 aperture. The lens used for this is a wide-angle lens with a width of 107 degrees. The secondary sensor is also a 16-megapixel sensor, but with a f / 1.6 aperture and a 71-degree lens. The front of the device is equipped with an 8-megapixel f / 1.9 sensor with an 80-degree lens. Knowing LG, we can say with confidence that this will be one of the best smartphones on the market, if not the best. The cameras have intelligent skills that Huawei is already doing better. The 3000mAh battery is fully charged.
So, What news?
There is a headphone jack. This is not new, did not agree, but on this day and at the age of I will give LG unfair points for it. A unique feature of these phones would be the presence of a Bixby-esque button on the side. Instead, it launches Google Assistant with a single click. Double-click to launch the Google lens. Voice recognition Super Far Field allows LG G7 ThinQ to hear the Google Assistant commands from a distance of up to 5 meters.
LG G5 was LG’s most ambitious approach. In simple, simple words, it hammered. When LG took a safer approach with the LG G6, we realized. So, what happened to LG, adhering to a similar safe approach with the LG G7? For one cutout. Cutout, popularized by the iPhone X, which becomes old and tedious. I lost count of how many phones he already had, and how many will go this year. The distinguishing feature of LG “disable” does not even work. The visible black bar at the top on both sides of the notch is worse than the notch visible one. LG G5 too tried, LG G7 ThinQ is not even thinking. Besides the cutout, the G7 looks the same as the previous LG flagships.
For a cutout, there is an argument that this is unavoidable, as OEMs want to expand displays and still have a front camera and speaker. Let’s ignore what Xiaomi does with the Mi Mix series, or what Samsung did with S9, for the sake of argument. However, with the inscription, like all the other Huawei P20, had many features that distinguished it. In the latest LG offers, there is an additional button. Did LG ThinQ do it?
I believe that after two disappointing flagships and continuing losses, LG cannot afford ThinQ. It’s safe to say that a new generation of OEMs has replaced fallen idols. In the world of Huawei and Xiaomi, Sony, LG, and HTC all fell in one line. Their flagships have the same public attention as the flagship of Asus, if not less. At least, Samsung adhered to its own design this year.
