Samsung Galaxy S9 vs LG G7 ThinQ - Tough comparison | Pocketnow

  • Published on May 13, 2018
  • Watch our comparison between the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the LG G7 ThinQ. This is one of those interesting comparisons. By specs and dimensions alone, the LG G7 ThinQ would be most fit to be compared against the Samsung Galaxy S9. But because it has two cameras, and no there's no G7 Plus, it also fits in middle ground to be compared against the Galaxy S9 Plus. I guess the best approach is to compare it with a bit of both to a certain degree. I'm Jaime Rivera with Pocketnow, and this is LG G7 vs Samsung Galaxy S9.

    Great review. Got the LG, it's nice but noticing lots of screen blur when scrolling text. Battery doesn't last the day, may be an app draining it. Screen isn't very bright, have to keep turning up brightness as well. Speaker is amazing, very loud! Photos really good 👍

    G7 thinq can records 4k60fps like the s9 and don't forget that the s9 can record the 4k60fps just for 5min but the g7 can record it for 6min

    So you know "background blur" is called Bokeh and it is determined by the aperture of the lens

    Watching on the V20. Clean winner of audio in 2017.!!


    I only ordered it because a Grade A renewed is $190 now with wide availability. Beats current budget phones for sure. Like Moto G7 Play or Honor 8x or so.

    Buen teléfono lg g7 y el g8

    the g7 thinq can record 4k60fps as well!
    but, even without it, i still prefer it over the s9/s9+

    1 Year on the pricing for these phones brand new (cheapest deals I can find locally):
    s9: $650
    G7+ :$550

    The higher model G7 is still cheaper than the base s9. That alone hopefully wins many people over.

    All those minutes spent on praising LG G7 only to choose the S9 which after a year lags like crazy... Wide angle cams and great audio are better selling points than no notch and a variable aperture for me tho...

    both almost the same specs, but the price of this phones this day is so different, S9 still at $800 but the G7 is at $400 now

      Yeah I got it on sale at Best Buy for $240 with Verizon. Great deal. I love the IPS display as I don't have to worry about burn in.

    Pretty sure my LG G7 can't record video on the wide angle camera. Always switches to the normal camera when I hit that red circle. Anyone else?

    • Akhdar Muso
      Akhdar Muso 2 months ago

      @Chris Wright discovered how to do it , but was very disappointed with the significantly reduced width of the wide angle lens, which they say is a must for the higher quality camera. I say feck.

    Now it's very easy to chose LG G7 because it's price ( 200$ - 250$ )

      If the creator and maker of oled screens decides to not use one themselves. Don't you think that gives a signal?

    I would go with LG, anyday just coz Samsung doesn’t offer the SD variant in my region.

    I just got the G7 on the 22nd of April and I love it so far.. I had the Moto z2 force and the screen scratched badly because it was plastic.. Lg is great they paid for my upgrade and I am happy that they did 🙂

    I have the G7 and hate the zoom quality. Nothing like my G5 was. That was my favorite camera ever. I really want to go back to the S series after the LG G7 :/

    the G7 is free to lease through Sprint. I was really considering an S9 or S9+, but I'm thinking the G7 will be my next upgrade from my current G6.
