Thanks to its ARCore SDK, Google made developing augmented reality applications more accessible and streamlined. To guarantee a consistent experience across devices, the Californian giant has put a certification process in place, through which it ensures the camera, motion sensors, and CPU perform as expected. Among the list of officially supported handsets are the LG G7, V30, V35, and V40 series, which offer the same motion tracking as other certified products. Nevertheless, Google acknowledged autofocus is not correctly working on these phones for the time being, although that shouldn't alter the end user's experience. Read More
As we get ready for MWC 2019, let's take a moment to reflect back on the phones of yesteryear and bask in their ever-falling prices. One of the more forgettable ones from 2018 was LG's G7, a capable device on its own merit despite its failure to amaze. Right now, Amazon and B&H are both selling the black model for $479.99, a nice $270 off the MSRP. Read More
LG's history when it comes to updating phones is not great — so much so, in fact, that the company went out of its way to announce a whole new Software Upgrade Center earlier this year to combat the problem. It's too early to tell if it's making much of a difference, but the company has just announced that the Korean G7 ThinQ will be getting upgraded to Android 9 Pie in Q1 2019. Read More
It may have a stupid name, like all of LG's recent phones, but the G7 ThinQ isn't a bad little device. LG may not be in the position it was a few years ago, but its flagship G-series is still worth looking at, especially if you can get a really good deal on it. Read More
The LG G7 ThinQ is a perfectly capable device, but at $749.99, there's really not enough to the phone to make it worth buying over its myriad competitors. Currently, though, B&H has the G7 for a considerable $180 off, bringing its sticker price down to a much more palatable $569.99. Read More
When it came time to review the LG G7 earlier this year, I was conflicted. Here was a quite nice, generally well-executed smartphone, but one I just couldn't get really excited about — features like its AI camera and hardware Google Assistant button were forgettable at best, and I had trouble justifying the flagship-level pricing. But at its heart, there was a lot of potential there, which is exactly why I was excited last month to learn about the debut of the LG G7 One and G7 Fit, two phones very much cut from the same cloth as their namesake.

Right now, Amazon is selling the LG G7 ThinQ for $649.99, or $100 off MSRP. It sounds like a decent discount until you see what seller never-msrp on eBay has to offer: the upgraded G7+ ThinQ, which isn't offered here in the US, for $20 less at $629.99.
It's been around two months since the LG G7 ThinQ was released in the US, and it's only now getting its first update on Verizon. The update includes manual AI Cam control, Google's AR Stickers, a custom music equalizer setting, and some more tweaks. Read More
LG's been doing some... interesting things with its smartphone lineup. It's basically rereleased the V30 twice with marginally different specs, and the G7 ThinQ isn't very innovative either. Nonetheless, the G7 becomes an interesting proposition at B&H's current price of $629.99, which is $120 less than MSRP. Read More
A year ago, it felt like LG was at the forefront of the next big movement for phone design. After handset sales had been dominated by models with 16:9 screens for so long, the G6 introduced us to the brave new world of 18:9 displays. And in the time since, we've seen manufacturer after manufacturer update their own lineups with similar phones featuring ultra-wide screens.
So while the G6 had a pretty compelling hook, not only have a lot of other players embraced that new screen shape in the time since its launch, but they've also been iterating around towards the next big evolution in screen design — the notch. Read More
