LG G7 vs. LG V30 vs. LG V30S vs. LG G6: What are the differences?

The LG G7 ThinQ  is the new flagship phone of the company, but how is it different from the LG V30S ThinQ , a cell phone announced only a couple of months ago and that until now is coming to the US? What distinguishes it from the LG V30 and the LG G6 ?

Let’s start with the specifications.

The LG G6 has the oldest processor of all (introduced in 2016), the Snapdragon 821. For its part, the LG V30 and the ThinQ V30S integrate a more recent and powerful processor (introduced in 2017), the Snapdragon 835.

Although, the V30 have a processor of a previous generation, the difference in performance is not too great, but the difference with the G6 itself is remarkable.

Another relevant specification is RAM. The LG V30S ThinQ is the only one sold worldwide with 6GB of RAM, while the others have 4GB of RAM. The LG G7 ThinQ has a version with 6GB of RAM, but at the moment it will be sold in a few markets.

Similarly, all have a base version of 64GB of storage, with the exception of the LG V30S ThinQ which has a 128GB base version of storage and is available with up to 256GB of storage.

The other cell phones have a 128GB version, but they are not available everywhere, so it totally depends on the market.

As for the battery, all these phones have a 3,300mAh, minus the LG G7 ThinQ.

The design of these phones is top notch, but the LG G6 is a little behind. And although the LG G7 ThinQ is more refined, it has an eyebrow or notch  that is not for everyone.

The LG V30S and V30 have a 6-inch screen, the 5.7-inch G6 and the 6.1-inch G7 ThinQ. This makes the G6 the most comfortable to use in the hand, followed by the G7 ThinQ. Even with the G7 and V30 / V30S side by side, the V30s end up feeling a little too wide.

All these cell phones can be charged wirelessly (although the G6 does not bring this in all markets), they are equally water resistant (IP68), have a microSD slot and can be charged wirelessly.

One of the big differences in the design is that the LG G7 ThinQ is the only one that does not integrate a power button in the fingerprint reader on the back, but has its own button on the right edge.

In addition, although all have a high-fidelity Quad-Dac amplifier, the G7 ThinQ is the most advanced and the G6 reaches a few markets (not available in the US).

Likewise, the LG G7 ThinQ is the only one with advanced technology for its speaker: it has DTS: X technology that promises to offer a high quality 3D sound.

On the other hand, the LG G7 ThinQ is the one with the most advanced artificial intelligence ThinQ, or at least the one that makes it more visible to the user. The one that follows is the V30S ThinQ, while the others do not have the ThinQ intelligence.

The difference between the LG G7 ThinQ and the V30S ThinQ is that, for example, while the second has the ability to detect up to 8 different scenarios or objects to automatically adjust the camera settings to (in theory) take a better picture, The G7 ThinQ manages to identify up to 18 scenarios.

In addition, other improvements combined with the new processor help make this process more accurate and faster.

The screen of the LG G7 ThinQ is also the brightest of these phones, has a physical button dedicated to Google Assistant and has improved cameras that also have a better resolution, although the wide angle is a little more closed – it takes less space from the same distance (107 degrees vs. 120 vs. 120. vs. 125 degrees, respectively).

In general, the LG G7 ThinQ aims to be the best LG cell phone to date, but its battery could be a problem because it has lower capacity.

However, although they have not announced the price of the G7 ThinQ, the G6 would be the cheapest, followed by the LG G7 ThinQ and V30, while the V30S ThinQ would be the most expensive.

We compared different specifications and features of the LG G7 ThinQ with the LG V30, LG V30S ThinQ and LG G6 to know their differences.
