Recently, DxOMark released the camera score for the LG G7 ThinQ. It's one of LG's top smartphones this year aside from the LG V40 ThinQ.

As expected, it has a dual-camera setup aside from its flagship worthy build/design, specs, and other features. It boasts a 16MP f/1.6 w/ 71-degree wide-angle lens and 16MP f/1.9 w/ 107-degree ultra wide-angle lens. It is paired with PDAF, laser AF, OIS, and LED flash.

Sadly, it failed to shine at DxOMark's camera lab. It only got a photo score of 84 points and a video score of 79 points for a total score of 83 points.

Compared with other top phones, the the 83 total points of LG G7 ThinQ is way below than the 109 points of P20 Pro, 105 points of Apple iPhone XS Max, 103 points of HTC U12+, 103 points of Samsung Galaxy Note9, and 102 points of Huawei P20.

In good conditions, the LG G7 ThinQ is capable of capturing nice images and video with pleasant color and good exposure. However, overall image quality is not quite up at the same level as the best in class. Dynamic range is a little more limited than we would expect from a high-end device, and image detail is only average, especially in lower light scenes. We also found the autofocus system to be a touch slower to react than for some direct rivals.

Some mobile photographers might find the LG’s secondary super-wide-angle lens to be a useful creative tool (although it does not impact on our scoring), but if this feature is not very high up on your list of priorities, there are currently better smartphone cameras available at the same price point as the G7 ThinQ. 

DxOMark doesn't take wide angle lenses into account in their scores though.

But hopefully, the new LG V40 ThinQ will get a much higher score.
