How do you make a device popular if you can not be innovative in production? How can you make a device limited, so it becomes popular? LG has good answers to those questions. Of course, calling LG not being innovative is harsh, and I don’t mean that. But in terms of their smartphones, there is nothing new. Most of the devices can be considered as middle class, and the Q7 is no different. Yet, LG manages to make some noise. How? By partnering with a band, “BTS”, and producing a limited version of smartphones in that partnership.
How cool it is to receive a wake up/good night call from your favourite singer? Special emojis? Filters/frames for your phones? All from BTS. If you are a true BTS fan, this is your dream phone. Other than that, well, it is a normal Q7 Plus. Yeah, that is the truth. Let’s not forget the fact that there are only 700 pieces available. So, it is very limited. Could it be counted as something collectible? I doubt that, but still, it does not change the fact that it is limited. So, a kind of coolness factor.
For me to judge whether buying this phone is worth it or not is a bit hard. I only use my smartphone, you know, just as a smartphone, and I don’t value the brand effect that it comes with. For some, these devices are more than smart devices, they become part of their identities, and the Q7+ BTS can literally become a part of you if you really want it to.
Specs-wise, it is not different from many of the other mid-level smartphones out there. Therefore, your purchase decision should be entirely based on whether or not you are a fan of BTS. Special emojis, frames for selfies, etc., are just a justification point for your fandom. If you are not a fan of BTS, you can still go with a regular Q7 and be happy with it.
Still, if you are someone who is looking for very good specs/hardware/cameras and at the same time happen to be a BTS fan, you can be disappointed. Because performance-wise, you will not find what you are looking for. So, be careful about why you are making this purchase. Otherwise, it is cute.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
