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.

when the back glass cover is replaced after it is cracked and then pried off, how do you achieve “water proof” again”? Thank you
