LG re-invented itself a bit in 2017 with the G6: a back-to-basics design that focused on being a great phone rather than relying on mods and other superfluous hardware features. That trend continues in 2018 with the LG G7 ThinQ: a great smartphone with interesting branding — and some tricks up its sleeve.
This is everything you need to know about the LG G7 ThinQ!

Yes, it has a notch
The topic of notches on Android phones is… divisive. You can go either way on your opinion of a display notch, and with the LG G7, you can go either way on having a notch. It's enabled by default, but if you disable it in the settings, you just have a plain black status bar.
Dual cameras are back
LG has had dual cameras for a few years, with one standard lens and one wide-angle lens. That continues on the G7, and it's just as great as it has ever been. LG seems to be the one manufacturer interested in great wide-angle photography, and it's become a legitimate reason to choose LG phones over the competition.
The main lense is optically stabilized for better low-light photos and videos, but unfortunately the wide-angle lens is not. There's also a Super Bright Mode to lighten up dark scenes, and it works well enough without the photo getting grainy.
Where to buy it
Interested in the G7? Fortunately, you can pick one up starting now. Every major U.S. carrier (minus AT&T) has started stocking the G7, between $750 and $792. Canadian carriers will also have the G7 available to purchase.
Grab some accessories
If you're going to get the G7, make sure to get some accessories for it as well. Screen protectors and cases are already available, and it's never a bad idea to get a microSD card for more storage.
