LG has some fantastic products that cover from mass market to flagship. Its entry-level includes the pre-paid Leon at $149 and K-series from $249 to $299. Then the Q-series from $399 to $649. Upper-mid-range is the G series. The new G7 Thin Q at $1099 is everything you need in any smartphone but not part of this review.
A little-known trick with LG is to bag a bargain on last year’s models. The 2017 flagship G6 (predecessor to the new G7) is down from $1099 to $599 at JB.
GadgetGuy’s pick is the uber flagship V series – the V30+. It has been software/firmware upgraded to ThinQ and usually sells for $1199. It is on special at JB Hi-Fi at $799. If you can stretch the budget, it blows everything else in that price range out of the water. All prices in brackets below are from JB Hi-Fi
