Overall, what’s here is a breath of fresh air compared not just to other LG devices, but to devices that the G7 One will compete against at and above its price range. There’s none of the cruft that comes with LG’s usual UX skin, and the device is fast, responsive and easy-to-use.

It’d be so easy to say if LG doesn’t ensure this is a significantly cheaper device, it’ll fall flat. Given the growing popularity for a stock Android experience, and the nice flagship-level device build quality, this might do well — even if LG asks for too much money for it on day one.

The LG G7 One, despite cutting some corners, is a device that we enjoyed using. It's speedy, it has a stylish design, it's well built and the interface is clean of bloatware.

- Victor Hristov, PhoneArena
TechRadar

The LG G7 One is LG’s first foray into Android One and it’s a decent attempt. Those who have tried, or have got, the LG G7 ThinQ will notice the phones are practically the same, except for a few under-the-hood reductions. But this is all about Android One and the clean-cut OS shines on this handset.

All killer, no filler

Had it come in at about $600 upfront, The G7 One would have been a no-brainer option for Canadian consumers looking to buy a smartphone with great features at a reasonable price. Instead, its current price tag makes all of its compromises, which in the context of a more reasonable price would have been brilliant, seem like far too much.

The LG G7 One is an interesting device. It delivers a good design, great display and pure, uninterrupted software, along with decent hardware. It misses out on a few things, such as a dual camera and the glass back that the G7 Fit launches with, which would have made for an even more compelling device, but there's a lot to like about G7 One.
