Are you excited about the upcoming LG G7?
by Preslav Kateliev / Apr 05, 2018, 9:24 AM
LG has had a rough few years — the G3 was a nice flagship, though the G4 failed to recapture its spark, and the G5 really missed the mark with its modular concept. But last year's LG G6 and LG V30 were pretty nice smartphones. Unfortunately, they were overlooked and underappreciated since the company had lost some of its momentum and the customers were looking elsewhere.
But if the company manages to stay on track and release another pair of cool top-tier phones this year, things might start looking up for it again. Or could they?
We thought we'd ask — are you excited at all for the upcoming G7 or have you lost all interest in what LG has to offer?

no, there's a notch.

I think most would agree that the notch is a complete miss. If the recent Reddit poll they had is to be believed, LG is worried about the notch as well, and the poll showed a pretty clear "NOPE" feeling towards the notch. While it may be too late for the G7 (I bet they'll give you a software "hide" option), I believe they will NOT go with the notch for the V40 (at least I hope.)

It is unfortunate that LG made the mistake of following those lower level chinese brands in copying Craapple's tasteless design. They should have looked at Samsung for inspiration and they would easily be more successful. However, the phone still looks very interesting and knowing LG, they make quality products.

A bit disappointed with our LG brother :( Why with that stupid notch though? I'll kick off an online petition for LG to revoke this ridiculous trend. Don't forget Samsung & LG are the real innovators not copycat like those Chinese OEM.

"Don't forget Samsung & LG are the real innovators not copycat like those Chinese OEM" Sure they are. What were the innovations for the S series this year?, copied animoji from Apple and slowmo ripped off from Sony. Plus LG Mobile wont exist in 3 years, they are currently losing $1 billion a year and LG wont stand that for long.

still using my V20 and it looks like LG has gone downhill sadly. i love my removable battery so i can swap it out for a fully charged one whenever, the second screen is awesome, as is the IR blaster and headphone jack/Quad DAC. but sealing in the battery and putting in a notch just because Apple did it is pathetic. it's sad to see a company that was once innovative and unafraid to make something bold now just try and clone every other device on the market -_-

I don't have the same visceral response to "the notch" as many people. Overall, it seems like this is going to be a great phone. Some competition for Samsung (my preferred brand) and other top brands is a good thing. Even the curios name ThinQ to match the LG IoTs doesn't make me pause. It's my belief we'll still call the phone a G7. I'll give it a try.
