Design, ergonomics and software

For a long time LG belonged, if not to the legislators of mobile fashion, then at least to the inveterate originals. shone with the extravagance of the leather back, which made it stand out from the general background. flaunted a controversial modular design - no one began to repeat the Koreans, but they deserved a medal for valor. The G6 brought an elongated 18: 9 display to the masses.

LG G7 ThinQ falls out of this mismatched but colorful range - it was created according to a given template "Flagship smartphone of the model of the year 2018". Front and back made of tempered glass, obligatory "Monobrow", which fits into the elongated display in 19: 9 format, without any characteristic delights. We're used to flagship smartphones trying to somehow get attention to occupy a special place on the shelf. Unfortunately, the LG G7 is not one of them - its design can even be described as banal.

The colors are also modest - in addition to the anthracite G7 ThinQ, there are also blue (Moroccan blue) and gray (ice platinum). Koreans do not flirt with the user, trying to develop their own solidity and quality. There is also a burgundy colored G7, but it is not officially imported into Russia.

There are no problems with the latter. Tempered glass, both on the front and back, is resistant to minor scratches: after using the smartphone for two weeks without a case, I did not find a scratch on it - this is a very rare occurrence. The ribs are made of metal with almost invisible (at least against a black background) plastic inserts for correct antenna operation.

The main advantage of the LG G7 ThinQ case is its water resistance - not only according to the IP68 standard, but also with a military protection certificate (military standard 810G). I wouldn't expect the smartphone to definitely survive and fall onto the asphalt from human height, but you can drop it into a puddle or off a table without much fear. In this case, LG will replace the G7 ThinQ display free of charge within one year of purchase.

The most important point here is that the mini jack stayed in place. As you can see, the analog connection isn't an obstacle even for today's highest class of moisture protection in mass-market smartphones. Don't trust marketing games.

There is something unusual about the LG G7 ThinQ. It's about governing bodies. This time, the Koreans dispensed with their proprietary power switch on the back and placed it in the standard position for Android smartphones - on the right edge. However, the separate volume buttons have been moved to the left, along with an additional button that you can use to call the Google Assistant. Lots of people complain about this - they say too many accidental clicks with mostly useless functionality. You can't argue with the second one, but I didn't have any accidental clicks. I just didn't use that button.

The dimensions of the LG G7 ThinQ are impressive - despite the large screen, it does not differ in thickness and width from its predecessor, which, as we recall, already had an elongated display. It's a bit higher, but that doesn't prevent the smartphone from being very convenient to use - as much as possible for a device with a screen more than six inches diagonally.

The fingerprint scanner is in the traditional and perhaps most convenient place here - on the back, just below the camera block. The index finger lies there naturally, you don't have to hold the smartphone in your hand. The scanner itself is classic, capacitive, works quickly and without interruptions. With its help, you can block not only the entire device, but also individual applications.

If you want, you can also set the default unlock for devices running Android 8.0 Oreo using facial recognition. Special sensors are not involved - this only happens due to the front camera (the G7 ThinQ cannot protect against unlocking with a photo). So this is a purely secondary option that I wouldn't seriously rely on.

LG G7 smartphone: screenshot

The operating system of the LG G7 ThinQ is equipped with the proprietary LG UX 6.0+ shell. Koreans are slowly changing their software - albeit an upgrade, but all the LG UX 6.0 we've seen in the G6. Anyway, the shell is nice - it looks good, works fast, and isn't cluttered with unnecessary software. You can "hide" the section on the screen by filling the status bar with black or gray. Well, or several history options - you can make your smartphone sophisticated.

I want to point out that there is no search line in the standard shell. There are labels for Google and Yandex, but you have to set the line yourself.

LG promises a timely update of the Android operating system to version 9.0. We cannot say whether the shell will be updated to the new UX 7.0 at the same time.

Display and sound

The LG G7 ThinQ uses an IPS LCD. This is doubly strange given the flagship status of the smartphone (if even Apple’s backdrops switch to OLED) and the fact that LG has been a leader in making screens based on organic LEDs for years - albeit in television. And if V-series smartphones are actually equipped with OLED displays, the G7 is in its essence also a flagship - this advantage is withdrawn.

In terms of diagonal and resolution, there are no questions: 6.1 inches, format 19: 9, resolution 3120 × 1440 pixels - with a pixel density of 564 ppi. If desired, the resolution can even be reduced in the settings, which does not significantly affect the image quality in most applications, but has a positive effect on the battery life.

But this is of course a very high-quality LCD display - with all the necessary coatings (from effectively oleophobic to polarizing), but also very bright. The maximum brightness measured under laboratory conditions was 609 cd / m2, which is more than good. When the automatic brightness adjustment is activated, however, this number can jump to 1000 cd / m 2 - on a sunny day it is possible to use a smartphone without any problems.

The default settings are disappointing. In automatic mode the average gamma is 2.28 with fairly stable curves. However, the color temperature is too high: the "fork" is between 8,500 K and 10,500 K. The colors are inevitably too cold. This is reflected in the average DeltaE deviation for the extended color test palette (grayscale + a wide range of color tones): 7.48 with a norm of 3.00. However, the extended color gamut in the vicinity of the DCI-P3 also has an effect here.

To get a more natural picture, it makes sense to make deeper settings and change the color display. For this it is usually sufficient to use the supplied presets - in particular there is a "cinema" mode in which the colors immediately become noticeably warmer. However, this is not enough for the screen to display the reference colors at once: gamma - 2.25, color temperature - from 7,500 K to 9,000 K, average deviation from DeltaE according to ColorChecker - 5.41.

In order to come as close as possible to the color reproduction conceived by the authors of films or photographs, you should make the settings yourself, as all possibilities exist for this - you can change not only the color temperature, but also individual colors on the RGB scale manually.

LG attached particular importance to the sound of a smartphone. There is not only a basic set of values ​​(3.5 mm socket, Bluetooth 5.0 with support for aptX and aptX HD standards), but also a "personalized" DAC - Saber ES9218PC. We know it from the LG V20, and we had no questions about what happened then and what will not happen now - the G7 ThinQ sounds great over wired headphones: detailed, powerful and even, without unnecessary accents in a frequency spectrum. It can even be used with high-impedance headphones - the smartphone has to "rock" them. However, I haven't had a chance to verify this information.

The loudspeaker is not anyway, but with a large resonator (17 times larger than, for example, in the G6) - and it also got its own name - Boombox. That way, you can be sure of a relatively strong sound for a smartphone, especially if it's on a table or other hard surface - there is something to vibrate. The speaker is the only monophonic at the bottom. Neither the vertical nor the horizontal handle will overlap with a finger.

LG also insists that there is a need to communicate with a smartphone not only by touching the screen but also by voice. The microphones are adapted like nowhere else - the developers claim that the voice can be recognized from a distance of up to five meters. I've checked - it's all true. Even in a noisy room or from across the room, you can ask the Google Assistant or "Alice" something - and Artificial Intelligence will hear it.

How can you check if you are a smart person or not?
According to Awdhesh Singh, author of books on spiritual intelligence and guidance, the following questions will help you understand if you are really smart.

1. Do you know how to solve problems in real life?

Smart people know how to solve real problems not theoretically but practically. These problems are very different from those presented to us in various books and textbooks on psychology.
Usually they already know the correct answer and each problem is simplified into a math problem.
IN THE REAL WORLD No situation is the same. Even if the problem seems similar, people and situations in real life are always different.
Hence, you have to be a really smart person to come up with solutions to real problems that are always unique. Well, only time will tell the correctness of the resolution.

2. Are you picking the right people for a particular job?


When it comes to solving a serious question, no one can find the right answer to all of the problems.
Even so, a smart person knows exactly who the right person is to solve a particular job or everyday problem. The smart person always chooses the right person for the right job and thus solves any existing problem quickly and efficiently.

3. Do you often manage to achieve your goal?


Ordinary people are driven by the motivation of others who often deceive them by repeating mundane things like “nothing is impossible”, “there are no hopeless situations”, “always being positive and optimistic” etc.
In contrast to them, smart people know each other very well and therefore understand perfectly what they can and cannot do.
They only strive for the goals that are within their competence, and their chances of success are quite high. As a result, the chances of success are dramatically increased and the probability of failure decreased.

4. Are you a creative person?


Intelligence is not possible without creativity.

5. Are you happy?


If you are not happy with your life, you are certainly not as smart as you think you are.

Your main goal in life is to be a happy and intelligent person. So you need to know what makes you happy and how you can become happy for yourself and others.
If you are frustrated with life, you may not understand yourself and the world you live in. How can you be called intelligent in such a situation?

6. Can you synthesize knowledge?


Smart people are not always great scientists.
In addition, they rarely graduate from the best universities in the world. You don't waste time learning what you don't need and what you will never put into practice.
You can learn from others all the time. You can also apply the knowledge you have acquired in other areas.
They are not experts in theory, but they are excellent practitioners in life. You also see unity in diversity.
If you manage to use your knowledge of art, science, and philosophy of science in areas such as religion, then you are definitely smart.
Unfortunately, if you cannot find connections between different things, then you cannot be called an intelligent person.

7. Can you work with people who are smarter than you?


Smart people aren't always the smartest people.
Do they often have bad memories and slow analytical potential?
Many people know that Einstein and Newton were very forgetful personalities. However, this did not prevent them from becoming geniuses of their epochs.
As a rule, such people have a certain macro picture of the world and know how a certain thing fits into the right place.
Therefore, when they meet with smarter and more successful people, they don't feel worse or more deficient, but instead take every opportunity to learn from them, including their own strong points, to achieve the goals set.

8. Can you accurately predict other people's behavior?


Bright minds can predict the behavior of other people they are dealing with.
Therefore, they are not surprised when people behave in a certain way because they know people well and can predict their behavior very accurately.

9. Can you accurately predict the future?


While most people think the future is completely unpredictable, smart people can anticipate certain events in advance.
Hence, they are always ready for future events. Because of their in-depth knowledge of people and the laws of the world, they not only predict the future, but also create their own future.
While their predictions are not always completely accurate, they are usually very close to the truth.

10. Can you prevent problems?


While common people solve problems that arise, smart people can prevent them from occurring.
You know the cause and effect relationships exactly and can therefore predict the occurrence of problems very successfully.
A wise person knows that nothing in this world is random and that everything happens for a reason. By actively preventing the causes, you can prevent the problem from occurring on your own.
So, if you feel that you have most of the above qualities, it means that you are very smart regardless of your professional qualifications, university grades, IQ level, or income.

Somehow in line with recent discussions about the unreasonable billing of all and all cattle, there are some personal experiences, mostly about the same. In short, I am pumping myself and not calming down. And I come to the conclusion that the main theme of the current level-up is constant and poking my nose into my own punctures and filth almost every day. Be it my knowledge, my attention or my purely physical reflexes.

And most of my problems are due to overconfidence. But what about - "I'm the smartest, I already know everything, I don't need your thinking anymore, I can do everything myself, simply because I'm the most intelligent and of course the most talented." Which, it turns out, isn't the case at all. More specifically, as long as I am in the same information space with the same daily chores and the same loyal comrades who are really (and sometimes rightly) willing to admire me. And one should go just a little beyond the usual framework - and in this expanded space they will show me again and again how worthless I am in my being, how ridiculous my claims are, "I already know everything I need to know" and how much i have yet to learn.

When I was just starting my professional career, I didn't even consider myself a programmer, I saw myself as an all capitalized programmer. Compared to the same students, you uncertainly draw flowcharts on a piece of paper and shapes in dolphins - that's right! Why do I need math (considering how it was taught to me - then it was even partially true), why do I need knowledge of different paradigms, patterns and techniques! I've already made four pages, and well, everyone knelt down in front of the big and cool me! And yes, there were those who "bowed" and asked for advice. And when I got access to a really advanced environment where ranchers are not very popular, the desire to impersonate a guru somehow diminished and an understanding of why and what kind of math I needed came about.

And now all that remains is to finish things off and work on them, both on professional growth and other aspects of being. Every day and every week. Do not try to destroy a non-existent audience with a non-existent authority (especially if that "audience" is an indifferent and impartial machine) - listen to those who are "wiser and more experienced" (and mean about whom) Favorite question doesn't come up "and you actually who?" - because you can see all of them). Not to be like the same "classic" students who spend the whole semester doing something other than studying, but to wake up before the meeting and try to Pass the exams "on the fly" and the phrase "freebie, come" - and study strictly daily and weekly servings all the time, if necessary. And before the exams do not assume that "Yes, I know everything and taught everything, why should I repeat it "- and don't be lazy and repeat it again (only yesterday I painfully stumbled upon it, today I have the results with considerable difficulty corrected). In fact, one of the cases today is just like that, through the suppression of my excessive self-esteem, and I closed it - and so I can already write about it. And how I get confirmation of this - I'll tell you in more detail.

Broaden your horizons more often. Even if they look at you like a louse on these horizons and make you understand in every possible way that you still don't know and don't know how. It helps to keep in touch with reality, not be arrogant and improve in every possible way. And the "smartest" - in the bioreactor as an opponent of progress.

1. An intelligent person speaks with a purpose

In a meeting, on the phone, in a chat. Conversation is a tool to achieve a goal.

Stupid people talk to talk. Here's how to indulge your laziness when you're busy. Or they struggle with boredom and idleness in their free time.

2. Feels comfortable alone

The wise man is not bored with his thoughts. He understands that important events and discoveries can take place in a person.

The stupid, on the contrary, try with all their might to avoid loneliness: when they are alone with themselves, they are forced to observe their own emptiness. Hence, it seems to them that important and meaningful things can only happen. They follow the news, search for companies and hangouts, and check social networks a hundred times a day.

3. Tries to keep your balance

  • Between external experience (films, books, friends' stories) and your own experience.
  • Between believing in yourself and knowing that you can be wrong.
  • Between ready knowledge (pattern) and new knowledge (thinking).
  • Between an intuitive hint from the subconscious and an accurate logical analysis of limited data.

The fools easily go to an extreme.

4. Try to expand the range of your perception

The wise man wants to achieve accuracy in sensations, feelings, thoughts. He understands that the whole is made up of the smallest details, that's why he is so attentive to the little things, shadows, the little ones.

The fools are satisfied with average clichés.

5. Knows many "languages"

An intelligent person communicates with architects through buildings, with writers through books, with designers through interfaces, with artists through paintings, with composers through music, with a caretaker through a clean courtyard. He knows how to communicate with people through what they do.

Stupid people only understand the language of words.

6. An intelligent person completes what he started.

The stupid stops barely starting, or in the middle, or almost finishing, on the assumption that what he's done may be unnecessary and will not be of benefit to anyone.

7. Understand that much of the world was invented and created by humans

After all, there was no shoe, no concrete, no bottle, no sheet of paper, no lightbulb and no window. With what was invented and created, he would like to give something to humanity out of gratitude. He makes himself happy. And when he uses what others have done, he likes to give money for it.

Stupid people do it with no gratitude and regret that the money has become less when they pay for a cause, a service or an art object.

8. Follow an informative diet

A smart person remembers facts and data that are not needed to solve current problems. At the same time, while studying the world, he first tries to understand the cause-and-effect relationship between events, phenomena and things.

Stupid people consume information indiscriminately and without trying to understand the relationship.

9. Understand that nothing can be evaluated without context

Therefore, he is in no hurry to draw conclusions and assessments of things, events, phenomena until he analyzes the totality of all circumstances and details. The wise man very seldom criticizes, condemns.

A stupid person easily evaluates things, events, phenomena without dealing with details and circumstances. He likes to criticize and condemn as if he felt above what is the subject of his criticism.

10. Contemplate the authority of the one who has earned his authority

A clever man never forgets that even if everyone agrees, they can be wrong.

Stupid people recognize an opinion as correct when it is supported by the majority. It is enough for them that many other people consider a certain person to be an authority.

11. Very selective about books and films

The clever don't care when and by whom the book was written or when the film was shot. The priority is content and meaning.

The stupid person prefers fashionable books and films.

12. Has a passion for self development and growth

In order to grow, an intelligent person says to himself, "I am not good enough, I can get better."

The foolish who try to stand up in the eyes of others, humiliate others and thus humiliate themselves.

13. Don't be afraid of mistakes

An intelligent person perceives it as a natural part of progress. At the same time, he tries not to repeat them.

The fools have learned the shame of making mistakes once and for all.

14. Can concentrate

For maximum concentration, an intelligent person can withdraw into himself, be accessible to no one and for nothing.

Stupid people are always open to communication.

15. An intelligent person convinces himself that everything in this life depends only on him

Although he understands that it is not. Therefore, he believes in himself and not in the word "happiness".

Stupid people convince themselves that everything in this life depends on the circumstances and other people. This enables them to free themselves from any responsibility for what is happening in their life.

16. It can be hard like steel or soft like clay

At the same time, an intelligent person starts from his ideas of how he should be under different circumstances.

A stupid person can be hard as steel or soft as clay based on a desire to meet other people's expectations.

17. Easily admits his mistakes

Its aim is to understand the real state of affairs and not always be correct. He understands too well how difficult it is to understand the full diversity of life. That's why he doesn't lie.

Fools deceive themselves and others.

18. Acts like a smart person most of the time

Sometimes smart people allow themselves to relax and act like stupid people.

Stupid people sometimes concentrate, exercise willpower, make an effort, and act like smart people.

Of course, nobody can be smart anytime, anywhere. But the more of an intelligent person you are, the more of a smart person you are. The more of the stupid, the stupid.
