LG G7 Fit review
Top specs in a tidy package
Our LG G7 Fit review finds top specs throughout including an AI CAM, Always-on Display, and Facial Recognition. This LG phone makes for a really good alternative to Apple’s and Samsung’s flagship smartphones.
QHD FullVision Display
The LG G7 Fit has a fantastic display that will absolutely blow you away. The tall 6.1” QHD FullVision Display packs in an incredible 564 pixels per inch (3,120x 1,440 pixels). It’s not just fine detail on offer because there is Super Bright Display technology that uses more white pixels to gain extra brightness and picture clarity, in an energy efficient way.

Tough durability and a fast processor
The LG G7 Fit has an all metal and glass design, yet it is light and thin at 156g and 7.99mm thick. This LG phone is available in New Aurora Black.

If you happen to be a bit clumsy with your tech then you will be pleased to find Military-grade and IP68 certification. This means that the phone is tough and water resistant (up to 30 minutes to a depth of 1.5 metres).
The chipset is impressive with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 2.35GHz quad-core processor with 4GB RAM. You can expect everything to work in an instant, from opening photos to play games.
Phone Set Up
LG Mobile Switch
The LG Mobile Switch app makes it easy to transfer your content from your old phone. There is a 32GB memory for this and a memory card slot for cards with a value of up to 256GB.
You are spoilt for choice when it comes to security on the LG G7 Fit. The first option is a fingerprint sensor and this can be used to unlock the phone, view photos, and access locked content in QuickMemo+ or the Gallery. If you want to be truly lazy, then there is Face Recognition and you simply need to raise the phone for it to recognise you.
The LG G7 Fit is a great choice for anyone who likes their music loud and powerful. The Boombox speaker is paired up with 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC Sound and DTS 3D 7.1 surround sound. The clever part is that the phone uses its inner space as a resonance chamber to boost the loudness and bass.
Android and LG SmartWorld
With the Android 8.1 Oreo operating system, out-of-the-box you get to enjoy some great apps from Google. These apps include Google Lens, which lets you use the camera to find information on landmarks, painting, restaurants, and much more. You will also be able to find information out, or control the phone, through the Google Assistant.
If you like to download different apps and content, then you will be, once again, spoilt for choice. You can visit both Google Play and LG’s SmartWorld app store.
HD Audio Recorder
The HD Audio Recorder lets you record sound in different ways and there are plenty of tools to play around with. There is also a Studio Mode where you can record your voice while playing an audio or music file.
Camera & Video
The LG G7 Fit has a 16MP main camera and an 8MP selfie camera with a wide field-of-view. One of the most impressive features is high-speed autofocus that lets you capture objects moving at speed.
