2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 2 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Nice, simple design - LG houses the Q7 in a metal case, coated with an acrylic-like glass finish on the back side
  • Fingerprint sensor at the back is reasonably quick and accurate
  • IP68 dust-proof and waterproof

Display

  • Decent 5.5-inch IPS display with reasonable sunlight legibility and good viewing angles
  • Contrast levels are on the low side though

Software

  • The software experience is pretty close to stock Android, which means everything is nice and simple, and there isn't much bloatware

Performance

  • Performance is a major weak point here with a low powered MT6750 chipset (similar to Snapdragon 435) - day to day use is fine, but heavier apps/games will struggle - most of the competition is way ahead on this metric

Camera

  • Average 16MP main camera, and 8MP front camera
  • Colors come out somewhat pale, and content in dark areas is easily lost
  • Low light performance is also average
  • Video recording quality is ok, but the stabilisation could have been better

Audio

  • Good audio quality via headphone jack
  • Good call quality too

Battery

  • Good battery life with a 3000mAH battery - you will get a day of use comfortably
  • Fast charging support (the phone takes about 2 hours to go from 0 to 100%)

Verdict

  • On the whole, the LG Q7 is an average device from the house of LG, with no big strengths apart from the simple software experience - and one area where it lags significantly behind the competition is performance - you will be better off looking at the competition
