Heavily based on the G7 ThinQ, which hit the market several months earlier, the LG G7 One rocks one of LG's most-advanced smartphone displays as we were reviewing its technical pros and cons, in the form of a 6.1-inch Super Bright LCD display that blusters with a 1000-nit maximum brightness level (A lot of popular high-class phablets score only roughly 500 nits on that front). It also boasts a premium-class 3120 x 1440 Quad HD+ definition and a 19.5:9 screen aspect ratio , the latter being one of the widest screen architectures on the market when it came out.

That big pro being said, its 3000mAh raw battery capacity winds up as a con in our book, since LG could have matched its rather power-hungry display with at least a 4000mAh battery cell -- by the way, don't forget to explore Phonerated's list of the best big-battery phones here. Another slight drawback is the fact that it drops from the G7 ThinQ's robust 6GB RAM down to only 4GB , despite offering a closely-comparable list of specs. Also, it supplants the ThinQ model's 2.8GHz Snapdragon 845 engine with a less-ambitious Snapdragon 835 octa-core chip, although, at 2.5GHz + 1.9GHz (It has two quad-core CPU clusters), it is still worthy of a 2018 high-ender.

Jumping over to its imaging pros and cons, the G7 One passes up on a dual-lens camera system, which was the go-to setup among the best photography smartphones of its time, but it does feature an AI-infused 16-megapixel main camera bedecked with things like the AI CAM option that recommends the appropriate set of enhancements for certain subjects in the frame and the Google Lens visual-searching tool. The forenamed camera also features laser-detection autofocus (LDAF) as well as optical image stabilization (OIS).

Sadly, this member of LG's G-series is not as promising when it comes to selfies, sporting a so-so 8-megapixel standard-angle (80 degrees) f/1.9 camera on its display notch. It also shies in comparison to some competing wide-screen smartphones in terms of internal storage, offering no more than 32GB of memory , though it easily makes up for this weakness by supporting colossal 2TB microSD cards .

Rounding things out for the G7 One are its IP68 waterproofing certification and New Aurora Black finish, both of which sound fitting for a 2018 multimedia-centric high-end contender.
