LG G7 Fit has everything that a contemporary smartphone needs. There is Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy with aptX HD, navigation (GPS with aGPS, with support for GLONASS and Galileo) and NFC. There is a dual-channel Wi-Fi and an LTE cat.11 module. On the back panel there is an active fingerprint scanner, which works fine and basically recognizes the fingerprint every time. I tested the smartphone from LG as a car and walking navigation. I connected it with a smart watch from Samsung and wireless earphones from Motorola. For most of the time it was connected to a Wi-Fi network. And in all these communication methods it worked without any problems.
From physical sockets there is USB type C with OTG and a minijack. The smartphone supports two SIM cards in the nano size, out of which one can be replaced with a microSD card of a maximum capacity of 2TB.
Making calls with LG G7 Fit is nice and easy – just as it should be. The smartphone ensures a basic functionality in this field – unfortunately without recoding calls. Their quality and loudness is impeccable. Our interlocutor’s voice is clean, loud and clear. The fact that we can install two SIM cards that work in the stand-by mode is an advantage.
Memory and efficiency
I do not know what the manufacturer wanted to achieve by placing only 32GB of internal memory in a middle price model – out of which the user is left, in reality, with only 17.2 GB after running the phone for the first time. Among models priced similarly as LG G7 Fit, 64GB is a norm, and we can even see some models that have 128GB. We can of course place a microSD card (up to 2TB), but for a cost of a one SIM card.
The smartphone runs on a unit that launched over two years ago – Snapdragon 821. It achieves decent results in benchmarks – for a quad-core unit – but it is not entirely reliable in work. I have some concerns towards the work of the interface, which can sometimes lag. Sometimes it was due to running or closing apps, loading icons on the screen or animations, but more often lags appeared while multitasking. Partially we can blame the system optimization, but I think that the hardware is to blame as well. Fortunately, during an everyday usage we do not notice this that much. I had some occasional lags and lost frames while gaming (Real Racing 3, Asphalt 9), especially during longer gaming sessions. The smartphone likes to heat up on the right side as well.
