LG G7 ThinQ vs iPhone X vs Samsung Galaxy S9 vs Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S

LG G7 ThinQ and LG G7+ ThinQ smartphones have been launched as the latest handsets from the South Korean technology giant. With the announcement, LG appears to be finally ready to join the other big players in the 2018 flagship party, including the handsets from Samsung and Apple. The new smartphones come with the popular iPhone X-like notch, wireless charging support, Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0, face recognition, and more features. LG G7 ThinQ has borrowed AI Camera features from the recently launched variant, the LG V30S ThinQ. In terms of hardware, it is quite comparable with the Samsung Galaxy S9. Likewise, it sports a notch design that reminds us of the iPhone X. While the LG G7 ThinQ seems like a promising smartphone for the top-tier buyers, it still faces a lot of competition in the market, including latest entrants like Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S.

The LG G7 ThinQ sports a Google Assistant and Google Lens button, Super Far Field Voice Recognition, DTS:X, Bokeh effects, Live Photo, and more such features. However, the Apple iPhone X that was launched way back in September 2017 is still one of the most popular and powerful handsets in the world, with features like an edge-to-edge display (with a notch) and a vertical dual rear camera setup. Meanwhile, in the Galaxy S9, Samsung had packed features such as Super Slo-Mo videos, dual-aperture in primary camera, motion detection. Similarly, when Xiaomi launched the Mi MIX 2S, it touted features such as Qi wireless charging, AI-based camera app with dynamic Bokeh, Google ARCore support and more.
