If you’ve read about the LG G7 ThinQ you have probably seen that most people state it is not exciting and there is nothing that unique and compelling to make people choose the LG G7. To be honest, you could say that about most phones as we have reached peak smartphone and there is very little left that manufacturers can do to raise the bar.

That said, after spending a couple of months with the LG G7, it is clearly a very underrated smartphone. The size is nearly perfect, it offers a wide-angle camera, and it is fairly affordable at less than $750 for a flagship.

Like the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, the LG G7 ThinQ has everything but the kitchen sink included. It has a 3.5mm headphone jack, dual camera setup (one is widescreen that is unique among the dual camera devices), wireless charging, IP68 rating, microSD expansion card for inexpensive unlimited storage expansion, a screen that extends nearly the full front with a notch, and incredible audio support.

Xiaomi Redmi 6

We haven’t interacted much with the device however the Redmi 6 comes with 3GB coupled with an internal storage of 32GB, this is on top of a Helio P22 octa-core processor. A dual camera, with a 12MP and a 5MP lens, although the front-facing camera remains the same at 5MP and the added security and convenience of a fingerprint scanner. We will update this once we interact with the device but definitely this is a device to watch.
