LG Q7 - technical data
A big surprise for amateurs of mobile novelties during the premiere of the smartphone, was its different from current standards technical equipment. LGQ7 uses the MediaTek helio P10 processor, which was on time in the third quarter of 2015. At the time when the smartphone was supposed to conquer European markets, competitors were producing medium sized products with Snapdragon 630 and flagships with Snapdragon 821 and 835 processors. In terms of performance, the model stood out from its mid-shelf neighbors.
When someone in the sales department came after reason to think and the price of LG Q7 fell by half, the attractiveness of the smartphone increased slightly.

Interestingly, the version with one slot has been armed with NFC module, while LG Q7 dual SIM no longer.
LG Q7 - display and housing
The smartphone is equipped with a 5.5" Full Vision display with a diagonal of 18:9 and a resolution of 1080 x 2160.

The height of the phone is 143.8 mm, which, with a width of 69.3 mm and a thickness of 8.4 mm, makes the device lie well in the hand. The rounded glass surface of the display connects to the metal back and weighs only 145g.
LG Q7 - camera
Despite the competitive trend of supplying smartphones with a dual rear camera, LG decided to mount a single 13 Mpx lens with F/2.2 brightness on the backpacks in Q7. The advantageous technological solution is the automatic HDR mode of the LG Q6. A novelty at the moment of the smartphone's debut was the use of Q Lens software, which recognizes objects while taking pictures and also enables scanning of QR codes.
LG Q7 - opinions of mGSM
The experience of Internet users from the mGSM portal shows that the LG Q7 smartphone is a handy and neat phone. However, this is the only positive feature that all users agree with.

The attractiveness of the phone and its demand is influenced by a significantly reduced, very attractive price.
