Bootloops may as well be LG's calling card at this point, as the company has a long line of devices that have displayed that behavior at certain points. The G7 ThinQ may join that special group if recent reports are anything to go by, but it would appear that it mostly isn't even LG's fault this time out.

LG phones have gained a reputation for spontaneous, ruthless bootlooping. Devices like the LG G4, V10, and the infamous Nexus 5X developed a taste for staying in the limbo between on and not-quite-on. While we haven’t had any LG phones with such a bad attitude in the past few years, we’ve yet again received substantial reports of bootlooping a LG flagship, only this time it’s the G7 ThinQ.

While the bootlooping jokes may be fun, it would also appear that the present situation is far removed from what LG users experienced in the past. For one, it doesn’t seem to be LG’s fault this time around. 

All the reports so far have one thing in common: they’re all G7 ThinQ’s on T-Mobile. It’s also limited to Europe right now, and it appears to have been caused by a firmware update that was sent out shortly before, which is the best case scenario, as it means the hardware has no issues.

Thankfully, unlike with cases in the past, LG appears to be cooperative about this, and users claim the company has asked them to turn the faulty units in and take replacements. It’s still a bit amusing that LG has once again been thrown for a loop, though.

Heh, forced bootloop joke.
