A midtier phone when it debuted in late 2018, the LG G7 Fit did not get a lot consideration. (LG telephones not often do, which is just too dangerous as a result of a lot of them are nice.) Maybe the $420 price ticket made this principally plastic mannequin — a kind of “lite” model of the LG G7 Thinq — a tough promote. But you already know what I all the time say: Cheap telephones come to those that wait.
For a restricted time, and whereas provides final, B&H has the. That’s the bottom worth on file; Woot had it for $180 a pair months again.
The G7 Fit works with all carriers, although should you’re on T-Mobile you would possibly need to look elsewhere. Based on some opinions I’ve learn and the provider desk that seems on the B&H product web page, the phone has some T-Mo compatibility points.
That problem apart, it appears fairly stable. The 6.1-inch display screen has a 19.5:9 side ratio, which means it is pretty tall and thin — or broad, should you’re watching films. LG provides a beneficiant 4GB of RAM, and though there’s solely 32GB of obtainable storage, you may broaden that by popping in a microSD card.
CNET hasn’t reviewed the G7 Fit, and the aforementioned opinions I’ve seen elsewhere are fairly combined. Some people ran into the admittedly irritating T-Mobile problem; others did not just like the tall display screen. (I imply… learn the specs?) Among the pluses: USB-C charging, a headphone jack and a bottom fingerprint-reader.
Here’s my take: A $420 phone for $150 is a win. Maybe this can be a spare you retain available for emergencies, possibly it is a phone you give your teenager. The indisputable fact that it is new, not refurbished, at this worth makes it sweeter nonetheless.
