A bit of flagship, a bit of thriftiness

Sound

You could think that the single speaker placed on the lower edge is responsible for playing sounds. By holding the phone horizontally, while gaming, it is easy to muffle it. But in practice there is a boombox feature used here – an LG patent, in which the sound is enhanced by the whole housing, more specifically by the resonance of the back panel. It sounds interesting and in addition it provides some tactile impressions, when the back panel vibrates in the rhythm of music.


However, what is more important is what we can find inside the smartphone - LG G7 Fit can boast with the Quad DAC CPU (ES9218+ SABRE HIFI from the ESS Technology company). I am no audiophile, so I will not dwell on the sound quality – the smartphone plays loud and clear, and after connecting good earphones – the sound is great. In addition it has a minijack, LG’s own music player and an FM radio – when it comes to the sound, LG offers the full package.


Photos and video

I was slightly surprised with the presence of the single camera on the back panel – lately I had an impression that a dual camera is a norm. In addition the one placed in LG G7 Fit is not too impressive. It offers 16 megapixels and an f/2.2 brightness lens. There is an autofocus with phase detection, as well as a support of an artificial intelligence – AI CAM. It can recognized a photographed scene and choose appropriate settings: brighten the shot, adjust colours, launch HDR. There is QLens as well, that is their own version of Google Lens, thanks to which we can search for the photographed object on Amazon or in images browser (in settings we can change that the default visual browser can be Google Lens). This is theory, but in practice it does not astonish. First of all it lacks image stabilization, second of all the brightness of the lens is an average one, and third of all without the additional wide-angle camera LG G7 Fit loses an important asset against its competition.


It is time to move to actual photography results – and they are not satisfactory. Photos in the daylight, or in good lighting can defend themselves, but those taken in poorly lighted rooms or after the sunset are simply bad. Without image stabilization it is difficult to achieve a properly focused photo, particular shots have good colours, but they often have poor quality. Here is a taste of LG G7 Fit camera’s capabilities:


The selfie camera offers an 8-megapixel resolution and an f/1.9 lens brightness. AI CAM works here, there is a portrait mode, which blurs the background in shots. And how does they look like? They are decent, with natural colours and good focus. They are enough for social media, but in weaker lighting it is best to forget about photos due to a high noise level.


The camera can record in 4K, but due to the lack of image stabilization it does not look the best. Just like recordings in Full HD. Here are video recording results:
