LG Q7+ now available from T-Mobile with 600MHz LTE support, Hi-Fi Quad DAC

lgq7plustmobile

Earlier this week, we learned that T-Mobile could launch the LG Q7+ soon. Turns out that that was spot on.

The LG Q7+ is now available from T-Mobile. Pricing is set at $14 down and $14 per month for 24 months on EIP, or $350 full retail price. T-Mobile is not offering the LG Q7+ through JUMP! On Demand.

In exchange for your hard-earned dollars, you’ll get an Android 8.1 smartphone with a 5.5-inch 2160×1080 display and 8MP camera on its face. Around back there’s a 16MP camera with phase detection autofocus as well as a fingerprint reader below it. LG has also included a facial recognition feature if you’d prefer to unlock the Q7+ that way.

Inside the LG Q7+’s IP68 water and dust resistant body is an octa-core Snapdragon 450 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage (up to 49GB usable), and a microSD card slot. There’s also a Hi-Fi Quad DAC (digital-to-analog converter) for high-quality sound when using wired headphones. Rounding things out is a 2890mAh battery.

One other feature of the LG Q7+ that’s worth mentioning is its 600MHz LTE support. That means that it can access T-Mo’s 600MHz LTE coverage, which reaches farther and is better at penetrating buildings than mid-band LTE and is now live in nearly 1,000 markets. The LG Q7+’s LTE support includes Bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 12, 13, 20, 38, 41, 66, and 71.

T-Mobile has been working to grow its stable of 600MHz LTE phones lately with devices at different price points. The LG Q7+ keeps that effort going, giving customers yet another option for getting onto T-Mo’s growing 600MHz LTE coverage.

    Does anyone know if this phone has a compass sensor? Cannot find it in the specs.

    • marque2

      Yes, accelerator,gyroscope, compass.But for the price, the Moto G6 plus is a much faster phone with better specs for the same price. Alas no band 71 on the Moto G6

      • Dominimmiv

        Thank you…where did you find this information? I only saw accelerameter on the LG site.

      • brybry

        does the moto have the quad dac ?

      • Jose Rodriguez

        The G6 and G6 plus are also not IP rated. Have less Ram, storage and zero in-store warranty support.

        • marque2

          Eh I would rather have the faster chipset and buy a fast SD card. Have you experienced Tmo in store warrantee support? They give you a box and send it in, just like Google and Lenovo do. I guess you save two days with Tmo over using an online phone purchase.

        • Jose Rodriguez

          The G6 plus has a faster chipset, the G6 does not.

          And no Moto warranty has had me send my device in first and then wait on a replacement. Tmo has my replacement device within a business day and doesn’t require I wait longer.

        • marque2

          As I was saying you could buy a G5s plus with Faster similarprocessor and otherwise the same specs – but better camera for $70 less. $70 seems a bit much for band 71.

    • SirStephenH

      Compasses have been standard in smart phones for years.

      • Dominimmiv

        Not all midrange/budget phones have them. The 2016 Samsung J7 doesn’t have it for example.

        • SirStephenH

          Ok, you got me there. That was a holdover from the dark ages.

  • PC_Tool

    “T-Mobile is not offering the LG Q7+ through JUMP! On Demand.”

    Well. That’s interesting. JoD getting the shaft again?

    • Tinger12

      They didn’t offer the Stylo 4 on JoD either. Seems they are either seriously cutting off JoD choices or since LG phone depreciate so rapidly, they won’t do JoD on them any more

  • vrm

    Love the color. Probably the best sub $400 phone offered by t-mobie (other than moto E5).

    Wish they made the display 720P and had 3200mah+ battery.

    • KOLIO

      The LG Q7 is a hard sell when you can get a much better phone,the LG G6,for only $10 more……

      If it were priced about $75-$100 less,I’d give it a look,but,definitely not at the current price…..

      • Dominimmiv

        The G6 does not have band 71.

        • KOLIO

          That still leaves you with Bands 2/4/5/12/66,I can’t imagine very many instances.if any,one would,or could,depend on Band 71 alone.

          I’d think the other Bands would have 99% of T-Mobile’s customers covered.

          If Band 71 is a vital need,then perhaps the Q7 is a better choice.
          Otherwise,I can’t see spending $350 on this phone,with or without Band 71.

        • SirStephenH

          If you want coverage at all then band 71 is a vital need.

        • KOLIO

          Band 71 is nice, the more bands the merrier but, Band 4 (then Bands 2 & 12) is the backbone of T-Mobile’s coverage, not Band 71.

        • Dominimmiv

          Unless you live in a band 71 only area like parts of N. California, Maine, Nebraska….

        • KOLIO

          Hence my previous statement of the 99% of us being covered by T-Mobile’s other bands……

        • SirStephenH

          T-Mobile doesn’t have enough band 12 to cover 99% of users…

        • KOLIO

          I never said Band 12 alone did,no one Band covers that.
          However,I will stand by the statement that together,Bands 2/4/5/12/66 do cover virtually all T-mobile customers.
          Most can & do get by w/o Band 71,it’s in very few areas,so,for the most part,a phone lacking Band 71 shouldn’t be the lone deciding factor.
          Again,if you’re one of the few who rely on Band 71,by all means,get the Q7 or any phone that has it.

          Band 71 may be “intended” to be a backbone band,but,in the present,that is the furthest thing from it.

          At the price point,this phone just isn’t worth the money,it’s in a hard place,spend a few more $$$ & get a better phone,or,save about $100 & get a phone with specs/same bands close to this.

        • SirStephenH

          Except that band 12 isn’t nationwide and where there is band 12, it’s usually horribly over capacity and often useless. Bands 4 and 71 are intended to be the backbone of the network now, band 12 was more of a stopgap.

        • KOLIO

          Bands 4 & 12,each on their own, dwarf Band 71 in coverage.

          As I stated previously, the G6 has all but 71 & those who rely on it alone, or, in conjunction with another band, are a very small percentage of users.

          If you have data that shows otherwise, please share it with us here …….

          Of course, their needs aren’t any less important than any other customer, so, if Band 71 is important to anyone, then of course, the Q7 is a better choice vs the G6.

          Otherwise, I stand by my previous statement recommending the G6 vs the Q7.

        • marque2

          G6 is a horrible phone that basically doesn’t work. My Moto G6, which I replaced the LG G6 with works much better.

  • Michael Elkin

    Am I the only one upset with the SD450 chip-set. At this price I was expecting 660 or 636.

    • marque2

      Right – comparable phone the Moto G6 has a 600 series chipset. Why LG is using the same slow chipset for all their phones from $100 to $350 is beyond me.

  • Zacamandapio

    Expensive.
    You can get a G6 for less than that.

    • thepanttherlady

      Nevermind…I was thinking Moto G6 with my other comment. :)

      • Zacamandapio

        What are you still doing here?
        I thought you were in the Bahamas by now.

        • thepanttherlady

          I WISH I was in the Bahamas!! South Dakota it is and moving there on the 23rd.

        • Zacamandapio

          :(
          I never got to meet you.
          I’m still here in Anaheim. Rocking ‘N’ Rolling.
          We’ll be in Crestline this weekend.

        • thepanttherlady

          Kids and I walk almost every weekend to Lake Gregory, let’s meet up while you’re here!

        • Zacamandapio

          I’ll go on Sunday with the Kids to walk around the lake.
          If the water floaties are still there we may go in. Otherwise, the walk around is pretty cool.
          My friend that lives in Hesperia told me that Tonis was good.
          Let’s eat while we can.

        • thepanttherlady

          It’s $10 to park and another $10 to go into the lake where you’re talking about (at least it was last year). We just walk around the lake (2.3 miles) and look for painted rocks. Never eaten at Toni’s…I’ve heard mixed reviews. Crestline Cafe, however, has REALLY good food and the portions are pretty big. It’s within walking distance of the lake. Email me @gmail.com and we’ll make arrangements.

        • thepanttherlady

          See you this weekend!

        • marque2

          Does Lake Gregory still have that huge slide into the lake?

        • thepanttherlady

          They do and that’s an additional charge. Charge to park (we walk there from where we live), charge to get in and another charge to do the slide. :/

      • Acdc1a

        So many phones and we rarely hear from you anymore. The Z3 Play is awesome by the way.

        • thepanttherlady

          I’m still here :)

          Unfortunately, I have to use Verizon for my line because I get no signal on the mountain. Corner I live on is a dead zone. Actually, there is quite a bit of area up here that doesn’t get a TMo signal. Hoping I can move mine back once I move.

  • Bklynman

    You can get LgG6 and the v20,for les than $300.00 on Ebay,brand new! It is store from NYC.
    Just put in search box v20 or Lg G6 it will come up. No it is not my store!

    • Acdc1a

      This phone has support for the new spectrum. That will be a big deal 6 months from now.

      • Bklynman

        Look above and see what KOLIO,wrote.

      • marque2

        Phase 1 starts in just a few days August 15 and ends Dec 15. I believe by April of next year Phase 3 will be complete, which means most of the west coast and south will be covered. There are some spots in NorCal that are Phase 8 – but yeah. March of next year would be prime time to get a new phone – unless you know for sure you are in a later phase.

    • Dummy Up Meathead

      Why? Those phones don’t support 600MHz. Silly.

      • Bklynman

        See KOLIO,comment above.

        • Dummy Up Meathead

          So? His comment came after yours anyway.

    • marque2

      And mine was broken out of the box, and the screen spontaneously cracked – so Tmo wouldn’t take it back under warrantee. When I called people – they couldn’t hear me unless I went on speakerphone. The GPS took days to switch from one city to another when I flew (even though it should have figured out I was in a different spot from the cell towers) I was very disappointed. And after the Nexus 5x debacle from my previous phone, I am pretty reluctant to get LG phones again.

      • Bklynman

        Me I would of taken Tmo,to small claims court,which phone was it,G6, the V20.?

        • marque2

          G6

  • No Android One? I guess that rumor ended up being false.

  • Jose Rodriguez

    When compared to the MOTO G6 it seems to be alittle overpriced, 299.99 is the sweet spot. However upon further review the Q7+ is better in every regard and the 349 price tag is justifiable. It’s got a quad-dac for great audio. It’s got band 71. It is avtuy dust and water proof. It has more Ram. It has more storage. More importantly to the average customer, the device has in person warranty support through TMobile. Sure you wait a day or two but it’s much better and less of a hassle to have everything done in person rather then through the phone with Motorola and waiting for the huge hassle that is shipping everything.

    • thepanttherlady

      The Moto G6 is also sold at Best Buy (where I walked in and got mine) or Amazon and can get it faster than from Moto.

      • Jose Rodriguez

        Yes you can buy the moto g6 in store. But after the return window how does the average person get any warranty issues handled with Motorola? It’s all over the phone and shipping which is often a few weeks for the whole process. With a device you buy from T-Mobile you get warranty issues processed in store and generally fully resolved within a day of two. That kind of convenience is what props carrier phones above unlocked models.

        • marque2

          I got my G6 from Moto and it took about 3 days. Not weeks. And to get it waranteed, you send it back to Moto, just as you have to send the phone back to Tmobile and wait a weeks for a fixed or refurbished phone. It is all about the same.

        • Jose Rodriguez

          The warranty process with TMobile is literally a business day transaction. You come into a store and everything is ordered and done there, literally in most cases I’ve had it’s a done by the next business day. Moto from dealing with them is a 2 week affair.

        • marque2

          Really? I know you think I am an idiot, but I actually have returned two phones under warrantee at Tmo, they quote you two weeks, but it ends up taking about one week.
          Actually when I tried to return my semi functional LG G6 but when the new phone came to the Tmo store, a week later, it had a cracked screen – so I didn’t accept it and they gave me my $25 back.

        • Jose Rodriguez

          Yeah sometimes I guess it depends on the model, but like I said generally in the few instances I’ve done an exchange or known of others to do one, one or two business days.

      • Acdc1a

        The G6 and Z3 Play are better phones from a software standpoint alone. For me the Z3 play at $449 with a battery and speaker mod was a better value.

        • Jose Rodriguez

          Moto doesn’t even do security updates. How is that better software?

          And for 100 dollar difference you might as well spend an extra 40 and get a oneplus device.

          Motorola just isn’t offering any thing compelling

        • marque2

          I get security updates, just not often. The G6 though is better than this phone in almost every way though, and it is cheaper. I don’t understand why LG uses the slowest of mainstream Qualcomm processors. It was OK for a cheap Aristo, but this is much more expensive phone.

        • Jose Rodriguez

          You realize the moto g6 has the exact same processor… And no, the G6 doesnt have a single better feature .a single one .

          Also moto is underfire for changing what the phone shows for security update without actually doing it .

          Do your research son.

        • marque2

          I was thinking G6plus (630) which is not available in USA – point granted but this actually makes things worse. I have a G5S plus – same memory as Q7, 625 processor, better camera – and this is still available on the Moto site for $279. I am sure it will be on sale again – I only paid $240 in January.
          Anyway, if the company has been “caught” not doing updates, I am sure the updates it does from now on will be better than average. Usually when a company gets caught doing something, they go overboard to reverse that issue. Chipotle restaurants excepted.

  • | VADOCOM™

    $350 for 4GB of memory/64GB of ROM. is outrageous. Given that the market for unlocked phones in the USA is not that big compared to buying phones from the carriers themselves. This is a steal! This is a good buy at the right prince. LG might have a mid-range hit on their hands. now anyone, including grandma & granddad can own a decent , good looking, HQ device in the sticks with T-Mobiles new 600 MHz band 71. If people are buying phones outright, then they surely can afford $350, which is a drop in the bucket, compared to unlocked devices with higher price tags: Huawei Honor, OnePLus, Blue, Moto, etc.
    I’m 40 and back in my young days, $350 WAS the cost of the highest end devices. No color screens…just green and black.
    LG may have found their place in the wild. Clearly they will never be able to compete on the same price level with Samsung and Apple. Accept what is and own it!

    • Acdc1a

      Nice to have you back Drewski.

  • vrm

    What makes this even better is that it has an Aluminium body and frame, including the back so you can show off this lovely color without a drab case to add bulk.

    Phones costing twice this are made of cheap glass, forcing you to include a case to add bulk. This phone is more premium than most that cost twice. It is all in the marketing.

    • Acdc1a

      If You’re careful, nothing needs a case and otsi my opinion that glass looks better. To each their own. I’d much rather have a $300 phone annually that I can sell for $150 when I’m done with than an $850 phone every 2 years that’s worth $200 when I’m done.

  • krym73

    Sounds like a good deal on the spec sheet but then you actually look at the screen, camera quality and performance. I’d rather save $100 and get the J7Star(32gb) for a better camera or the Moto e5 for a better screen. Unless 64gb internal is high on your priorities list and the camera,speed & display is not.

  • vrm

    480i is plenty good on a smartphone for that is the resolution I watch video at on an S9+ but I figured a pack of hyenas would descend on me if I said that.

    I am all for longer battery life on a phone. I don’t see it as the perfect delivery mechanism for HD porn or anything else from holly wood.

    • marque2

      4D HD porn. Get the seats shaking and water sprays, smells – it should work like that on the phone :P
