It is not a software trick like the Huawei P20, but hardware. What they have done has been to integrate a second narrow screen in the notification area surrounding the notch. That you like the aesthetics put fashionable by the iPhone X? You just have to let both screens share content like one. What do you have mania to the eyebrow because Apple? Just leave the second screen in black and you will only see the notifications in the color you want on an immaculate regular screen. It is a considerable effort considering that it is a simple matter of aesthetics, but the aesthetic sells. The LG G7 ThinQ has a good construction, good performance, microSD card slot, water resistance, wireless charging compatibility and great sound through hearing aids. Its combination of double camera that integrates a wide angle is a pleasure to use.
The bad Its unique speaker is left behind in front of cell phones with double horn; his portrait mode only worked with large objects in my preproduction unit and his software has not evolved much since the last generations. Its battery lasted several hours less than that of many of its competitors. According to a press release from LG, the LG G7 ThinQ will be the first phone to have the Boombox speaker, a revolutionary piece of audio that will increase the volume base of the phone to 6 decibels, as well as double the bass. How do they do it? The interior of the phone now also functions as a resonance compartment, increasing the sound from the phone’s speakers, resulting in a level of sound that LG calls “Boombox”. Placing the phone in an empty box makes it also work as a woofer, amplifying the bass effect even more. It is perfectly appreciated in the image: the ThinQ button is below the volume buttons on the left side of the smartphone. On the opposite side, navigation buttons on the screen, double back camera in vertical position with its fingerprint sensor underneath .
It is expected that LG will continue to bet on the wide-angle lens to complement its taking of photographs and videos, it is one of the The signs of identity of the brand. In it you can see the LG G7 ThinQ from all angles, so there is nothing left to the imagination Thanks to it, several details that were expected from the terminal are confirmed. An example of what we say is that the use of the notch (or notch) on the screen will be present, with some intermediate measures between those offered by the same element in the iPhone X and the Huawei P20. In addition, the fingerprint reader retains the back, but will lose one of its features. Previously, the G7 leaks showed that the phone would come in five colors, had the ability to hide its notch by darkening the top of the screen and Include an additional button on the left side. Last week, CNET reported that the button would be used to activate the Google Assistant, continuing the already defamed trend of devoting buttons to the activation of virtual assistants.
LG boasts of being amplifying the artificial intelligence with which their phones count, something that makes this G7 carry that peculiar surname. Artificial intelligence that is applied in a special way to its 8 megapixel cameras on the front and 16 MP on the back, in addition to including a dedicated button to access the smart functions of the terminal that will allow direct access to Google Assistant and Google Lenses. Thanks to her, she will be able to take better pictures recognizing the environment, shooting modes, etc … If this sounds like a button dedicated to artificial intelligence and a camera with enhanced functions thanks to this, it is probably because you have seen it already on phones like the Huawei P20 Pro or the Samsung Galaxy S9. Do you think there is nothing more to be said about the sound technology built into the LG phone? Apparently it would greatly improve the experience to use the integrated speaker because this time the interior of the G7 ThinQ would be used as a sounding box to boost to a high level the presence of bass when the terminal rests on a solid surface.On paper it paints technology very well, but it is also necessary to listen to live sound. Do not you think
