Packaging and accessories
The set covers, besides the smartphone, earphones with replaceable plugs, a powerful Fast Charger charger (9 V/1,8 A, 5 V/1,8 A), USB cable, tool for opening the tray for SIM and microSD cards and a cloth for wiping glass panels.
Housing and display
When it comes to visuals, the smartphone has basically nothing extravagant or distinguishable. The design looks like dozens other models, but we need to underline that the quality of assembly is on the highest level. At the front there is a great display, protected by Gorilla Glass 5, the profiled, arced edges are metal, and the back, curved panel is an another layer of glass, reinforced by the Corning company as well. The whole is handy, solid, resistant to falls (MIL-STD-810) and waterproof (IP68).
The display in LG G7 Fit deserves a commendation. It has a high QHD+ resolution, that is 1440x3120 pixels, which with a 6.1-inch diagonal gives 564 ppi. With such a pixel density per inch everything that is shown on the display is perfectly readable, sharp and clear. The display supports HDR10 as well. There is of course the notch, which can either be hidden or masked with different colours (in settings look for the “New Second Screen” option). In the notch we can find the speaker for calls, camera, sensors and notifications LED. The latter is supported with Always-on Display that is notifications shown on a dimmed screen – what is more, we can personalize them in different ways.
On the back panel there is a single camera that almost does not stand above the housing, LED flash, small, round fingerprint scanner, the name of the model and the logo – ale these elements are placed in one line, in the middle part of the phone. The housing itself is interesting as well – on the first sight it is black. Only after a while I have noticed that it has glitter in it, which – when we look closely and under an appropriate angle – can be seen as toned, bluish reflexes.
The housing of the smartphone looks like many contemporary smartphones’ constructions, in which two glass panels are connected with a metal frame, intersected by antennas’ bars. On it we can find typical elements:
- physical (plastic) buttons for the volume control on the left side,
- power/lock button on the right side,
- minijack, microphone’s hole, USB type C socket and the external speaker – on the lower edge,
- additional microphone and a tray for SIM and microSD cards (in the hybrid solution) on the upper edge.
All of this is placed intuitively and ergonomically, though I needed to get used to the volume control placed on a different edge than the lock screen. The disadvantage is a problem that touches all glass smartphones: it is difficult to keep them clean and they are slick.
