An offshoot of LG's 2018 G7 ThinQ flagship, the G7 Fit dials down some of its mother model's specs, although it's not a total disappointment, as far as this technical review of its pros and cons is concerned.

For starters, it comes with only 32GB of native memory , whereas the ThinQ edition boasts a 128GB maximum internal memory capacity. Fortunately for this Fit edition, though, it brings back the higher-specked variant's whopping 2TB microSD card support . Another questionable con on the hardware front is the G7 Fit's decision to opt out of the octa-core race and instead use a quad-core-only 2.35GHz Snapdragon 821 processor , while reducing its ThinQ sibling's robust 6GB RAM to a less-ambitious 4GB .

Furthermore, its 3000mAh battery, which promises only up to 100 hours on standby and 4 hours (240 minutes) of continuous calling , sounds quite problematic, particularly relative to its flagship-caliber display.

Speaking of its display, the G7 Fit brushes shoulders with some of the best phablets featured here on Phonerated by touting a 6.1-inch interface with an expansive 19.5:9 aspect ratio, a 3120 x 1440 QHD+ resolution , and a 1000-nit maximum brightness level . It also boasts a VR-ready 564ppi pixel density count (Check out other VR-worthy phones here) and it supports HDR10 content.

The G7 Fit takes its name from its MIL-STD-810G certification , which essentially makes it fit for use under harsh environments, as well as its IP68 rugged certification for dust- and waterproofing. It also dons an impact-resistant Gorilla Glass 5 panel on either side of its aluminum frame .

As for imaging, the Fit possibly holds its own ground versus several closely-comparable flagships, offering a 16-megapixel camera with features like AI CAM, a 3840 x 2160 (4K) maximum video-recording resolution, and slow-motion video capture at 120fps. Its 8-megapixel front-facing camera does not sound as competitive, however.

All said, the LG G7 Fit is a toned-down version of the G7 ThinQ whose pros and cons include some downgraded hardware components countered by several key upgrades in terms of physical protection, obviously making it a fitting large-screen phone for the outdoorsy user.
