LG G7 ThinQ Sim Free - Latest LG Flagship - Pre-order Now £594 @ Unlocked Mobiles

Found 13th MayEdited by:"czajunia"
Looks like a very good price for the latest flagship from LG. It's a pre-order and handset should be available on the 28th May.

Model number is LMG710 so most likely a single SIM variant even though it says in the description: "Dual 16MP rear camera, QHD+ Full Vision Display and dual sim options."

The notch will probably get some cold votes here as it is not everyone's taste and clearly a design copied from Apple but at least it can be disabled and used just for notification icons which I find quite useful actually. Judging by the specification and some hands-on reviews my only gripe is a small-ish battery. Apart from that it looks like a solid phone.

[Currently a bit cheaper from the Fonehouse at £583 . This is expired now. Back to £629 at Fonehouse.]

LG used to have some great features on their phones, now they just copy the rest.
Why copy an awful design? The notch. Lacks creativity. Anyone seen the Vivo Apex? That design is the future (concept).

The Chinese are still true innovators. If you're a up and coming company, you need to innovate. Much like the iPhone (Original). Issue with that is, the design's not changed too much from the original and I've aged 11 years. Why innovate when you rake it in, been milking that ever since though.

Heat for notch! I like it

What's the actual deal - this seems to be the MRRP?

Unfortunately that business model didn't work out to well. Following the market leader does pay though i.e. Huawei, Xiaomi et al

It's a really good one though. Can get really bright.
Errr... That's still a no from me

Never heard of that Vivo phone, but they'd get my money.
That's a refreshing change in design.
I've never been in a situation where I thought "this screen isn't bright enough", if anything I am more often dimming the screen so it's not draining my battery. LCD is so 20th century

LG were essentially the first to pave the way for the notch with their second screen design in the V10.

Advances in screen technology has allowed them to be a bit more flexible with screens, so they can now plonk the camera back in the middle and use the space either side for notifications and the time and status icons and use rounded corners to fill right to the edge of the phone.

It makes sense. I agree it looks unsightly, but with the notch 'disabled', as is an option on this phone, it looks fine. Unlike the iPhone X the array is small, so you're not really losing much space. Unless you're the type to have 100s of notifications on the go all the time it's not really going to interfere with anything.

Everyone is on the path to the full bezel-less phone, so I wouldn't say that the Vivo design is particularly inspiring. Everyone will have identical prototypes that they're not showing to the world.
Once again LG opt to make wireless charging only available on the US model so it's a no from me.
LG. Avoid.
Voted neither way.

It's not a prototype, it's rumoured to be getting released this year.

Time will tell.

EDIT:

It was said to begin production mid 2018

I didn't say it was a prototype. I said all the other brands will have prototype designs that look exactly like the Vivo, because that's the direction of travel everyone has been headed in for years.

Ha ha. Good question. When I posted the deal the price was showing £495 for me and I though that was an excellent deal. I think that must have been a no-VAT price though. My mistake, really, but I've never expected any retailer would list a product without VAT.

Oh well... I guess I'll keep it running and see what happens. Don't expect this to get super hot at this price point though. Maybe just a bit of heat because it's the first store to take pre-orders. Plus we can always keep the notch discussion running, right?

Especially since the LG boss said the V series will have the OLED screens (G series LCD), that would be the flagship to wait for and get.

Fair enough - early reviews suggest it's simply another "me too" phone and given how poorly LG devices now sell (the phone division has lost money every quarter for the last twelve quarters) - I'd guess that this will get rapidly reduced in price as they start to stack up in warehouses.
Edited by: "Alansmithee" 13th May
£594 for an LG is a big No No. They shoud take the Huawei approach, release a few lites and then the big one like mate 10 or P20 pro with a free Bose headset for pre-orders

I think Vivo is part of the Oppo group, same as OnePlus.

It'll be Vivo that get the applause though for actually releasing a product, that's the key here. What's the point of having prototypes not going to market? I hear apple test hundreds, and still decided on the notch. Clearly works... LOL. Either way, To do it ahead of the curve of the likes of Samsung/Apple - great for all who like actual innovation FIRST. I've personally got the Mi Mix 2 for the logic of I hate having the same phone as everyone else (both that, and buying any phone I want outright and going Sim only) and it's a good talking point. When I say Xiaomi, they typically say who.

Nevertheless, I'm glad for where we are with tech.

Yeah, they tend to spin off quite a lot. I had the first One Plus one too, I made a fair amount off that selling invites on that one. Now they're pricey.

Surprises me the extra 0.7 seconds it takes plugging your phone in is an issue. Surely wireless charging was a gimmick anyway..
How the hell can they get away with blatant copying like this?

Copy of what?
God damn this is a low price for a flagship!

2018, where flagships are becoming £1000
Discounted even before release. Should wait if you want one though. LG phones prices tend to drop quickly.

A special feature for bright sunny days... So living in England it's perfect for that one weekend in July
Can't understand for the life of me why anybody would choose this over the S9, heck I'd probably even buy the S8 over the G7 even if it was the same price.

Had 2 G6s, first one suffered from a snapped sim tray inside the phone due to the god awful build quality of the plastic, second one suffered some really severe screen retention and awful battery (gaming for just under an hour would take the battery down to 55%).

Liked the G6 style but poor quality of the device and awful update support put me off for the future

G6 is used for around £250 mark
Anyone crazy enough to put that much into an lg needs their bank accounts emptied and slapped in the face.At least we know what samsung has done with overstock on the poor selling iPhone X screens lol

Errr no. Chinese phones simply undercut competitors. They refine existing technology then undercut big brands and offer extremely good value for money. Innovation is expensive and drives up prices.

Crazy when LG are renowned for their OLED tech!!
