Don't Wait If You Find Something You Love
Don't let the LG G7 hold you back. If you find something you really like at a price you really like, don't be afraid to pull the trigger.
Most data plans allow you to upgrade to a new device after a year, when you trade in your phone. So if you were to buy a new device in the near future, you'd be able to pick up the LG G7 in early 2019.
There are a ton of excellent LG G7 alternatives on the market right now including LG's own V30, V30+, and LG G6. These devices are much cheaper than they once were and they're getting upgraded to Android Oreo.
You've got the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ which were recently upgraded to Android 8.0 Oreo and Samsung's Experience 9.0 UI.
We also mentioned the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+, Samsung's new flagships, and direct rivals to the upcoming LG G7. Make sure you go hands-on with these before you decide to wait for LG and the G7.
You've also got top Android devices like Google's Pixel 2 XL. It's one of the best phones from 2017 and it's definitely worth a look.
And if you aren't married to buying an Android phone, you should also take a look at Apple's iPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus.
