New video on the channel

Been working on this a while – but if you are considering a new device soon, perhaps the G7 from LG should be on your list.  I outline my top 3 features of why I think this is one of the better phones of 2018 – and why it stands out in a year of mostly disappointing smartphone news.  Be sure to hit the like button if you enjoyed it, and subscribe to the channel to get more of our content!  Thanks for watching…

LG G7 ThinQ pricing to be announced in “coming weeks”

G7_2

In information from LG this morning, it looks like we are getting closer to knowing what kind of value the new LG G7 ThinQ flagship smartphone might be.  In a press released we got via email earlier today, the reported pricing is going to be set by the individual carriers, and is supposed to be “in the ballpark of [the] G6.”  They also point to a linked Android Central article that cites previous carrier pricing for the the G6 (which can be found here) and that could be very good news for potential buyers.  Each carrier priced the G6 between $480 (on Sprint) to $699 (at Best Buy) – but the average price was around $500-550 and if the G7 ThinQ can be had around there, it would be an excellent value.

As a reminder, AT&T will not be carrying the G7 ThinQ, so you’d only be able to purchase the phone from one of the other 3 (or 2?) carriers once its available for sale.  And the rumored launch date is 06/01/18, so we shouldn’t have to wait too much longer.  Let us know if you have any questions about the device in the comments down below.
