Introduction

The last LG phone we tore down was the very modular LG G5, which was super easy to take apart and scored an impressive 8 out of 10 on our repairability meter. But that was then—what have we now? Let’s tear down the new LG G7 ThinQ.

This teardown is not a repair guide. To repair your LG G7 Thin Q, use our service manual.

Final Thoughts
  • Lots of components are modular and can be replaced independently.
  • The battery can be replaced, but adhesive and a glued-on rear panel make it unnecessarily difficult.
  • Front and back glass make for double the crackability, and strong adhesive on both makes it tough to access the internals for any repair.
  • Screen repair, the most common type repair, is not prioritized, requiring an almost complete disassembly while battling tough adhesive.
