An underrated phone. Much better value than its competitors. Should have been marketed better! Great display, commendable battery life if you don't game much and really good audio optimisation.

I've been using LG phones for a while now and this is my third in four years. So I am used to the software and UI, and the price is fantastic, so it was pretty natural for me to upgrade to this from my One Plus 3T. I was basically choosing between this and the OP6, which had a RAM advantage and the very good AMOLED screen, but the LG easily won based on the software, sound quality and very powerful customisations. My experience with the One Plus family was not fantastic - the UI felt oversimplified with a lot of omissions, and the sound out of the jacks was terrible whether using headphones or speakers.
The G7+ is priced very well compared to flagships from tier 1 brands and the maximum savings are probably because of the IPS LCD against AMOLED. The screen is very bright, has a very prominent blue cast which is removable using comfort view and a slider which allows fine adjustment of the blue filter, with spectacular results. At 30% brightness it is perfect for daytime indoor use and at 50% sufficient for outdoors. In direct sunlight, the bright mode ensures that legibility is not an issue. The black isn't as deep as an AMOLED and the always-on display sucks down a little more power because the entire backlight is turned on as against the AMOLED where only the specific LEDs are used.
Battery life might be an issue. The battery is small and the SD845 is not exactly the sipper we expect it to be, specially when at full performance. I am seeing the usual two days I get between charges might not be possible with this phone, and I am a very light user. Time will tell. The phone's form factor makes it really easy to hold in one hand. I'm less crazy about LG shifting the volume buttons back to the left side of the phone as it makes it difficult to adjust the volume while on a call. On the right you can use your thumb, on the left you can't do that. Most handheld devices are adapted to use the thumb for control, this is an aberration probably driven by Google.
The interface looks clunky because of the white boxes around icons that were designed with transparency in mind. This probably again a Google issue as I see it is common on almost all new phones. It looks stupid. However, LGs additional UI features are usually (not always) sensible. The capture and quick note utilities make it very workmanlike, the settings menu give you control over a very large range of the phone's abilities and the layout is very logical as long as you use the app drawer to clean up the home screens. There are a few bugs baked into the software - my battery percentage indicator has disappeared and will not come back on regardless of what I do, the way LG organises the gallery is confusing and the sheer number of customisation options may confuse some. I would still prefer this over the terrible Chinese options from Mi and One Plus.
Finally the sound - the sound out of the 3.5mm jacks is spectacular for what you pay. Connected to a very good hifi amp and a pair of speakers, this may be enough for budget audiophiles as long as you do not use the EQ options and pay for a good playback software such as Poweramp, and play uncompressed audio files. The 128GB on board and the memory card expansion means you can have plenty of music stored on the device. The speaker is loud but tinny, and the earpiece has a bit of a honk to it which makes it uncomfortable at loud volumes. The 'Voice Clarity' options doesn't improve this significantly, if at all. Overall audio performance is still excellent.
All in all given the features, pricing and performance, it's difficult to go wrong with this device. Brand preferences aside, I think I would still have picked this up even if I hadn't been waiting for a good LG phone for a while. I recommend it heartily!

It's the "Flagship Killer's Killer"..
I'm glad LG is back. what a beauty this phone is. you get top of the line features and hardware at sub 40k. it will definitely give a tough competition to OP6.
pros over OP6 are boombox speaker. quad dac, IP 68 rating, mil 810g standard, and the awesome wide angle camera..
my advice would be to ditch OP6 and go for LG G7+ ThinQ.. you will not regret a bit..
Edit:After a week of usage, only issues faced are battery backup.. if you're a heavy user, you will have to charge it before leaving from.office..
