100% LG Gram 15 Review: Light touch
Source: Toptenreviews English
It's not cheap, but the Gram squares the circle of full-size screen, all-day battery and low weight.

In closing, much like its predecessors, the new gram notebooks, with its light weight and long battery lives, are ideal for anyone who spends a lot of time running around, or anyone who just wants an ultra-light notebook.

85% LG gram review: The lightest 15.6-inch laptop doesn't make compromises
Source: Neowin English
The LG gram is a laptop that I can recommend to just about anyone. The groups that are excluded from this are those that need gaming, video editing, or those that need a convertible. If you're in the market for a premium clamshell laptop that's engineered for productivity, super-light, and won't break on you, look no further than the LG gram.

Hands-on with the updated for 2018 LG gram notebooks
Source: Hardware Zone English
However, the pricier Core i7 model’s USB-C port is also a Thunderbolt 3 port. So if Thunderbolt 3 is a priority for you, it is worth nothing that this particular gram 15 model is the only notebook in the lineup to have a Thunderbolt 3 port.

If lightweight, all-day battery life and a large screen size are your top must-haves for your next laptop, the LG Gram 15 is worth the expense.

LG Gram 15Z980 review: It's rich and thin, and its battery doesn't stop
Source: Good Gear Guide English
The 15-inch LG Gram isn't the fastest 8th-generation quad-core laptop we've tested, but it's certainly one of the lightest, and its stellar battery life makes up for its modest performance shortfalls. The Gram's cramped keyboard takes getting used to, however, and budget-conscious laptop shoppers may balk at the $2,000 price tag.

Source: PC Advisor English
The LG gram 15 might look and feel the same as before but comes with a number of upgrades including 8th-gen Intel, more storage, a fingerprint scanner and Thunderbolt 3. It's amazingly light and offers excellent battery life too. However, all of this comes at a very high price (especially in the UK) and you can get similar packages at much lower cost with laptops like the Microsoft Surface Laptop and Lenovo Yoga 920.

After a few years, LG largely withdrew from the laptop sector. In the smartphone segment, LG is a medium-sized manufacturer (not among the Top 5 in 2015 and 2016).


84.43%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
