Reviewed Device: LG G7 One

The LG G7 One is a variant of the LG G7 that is sold in certain areas (as far as I am aware Canada and South Korea).
The main benefit is that it runs on Android One (stock android), and therefore received updates up to Android 10 at a much faster pace than the LG G7. The phone itself is a good performer, rocking a Snapdragon 835.
The chassis is nearly the same, with the main physical difference being that the camera has one lens (it is therefore missing the ultra wide angle lens from the LG G7).
The other visual difference is the rear glass has a matte finish (ALA iPhone 11 Pro versus iPhone 11).
Unfortunately, the phone does lose Qi wireless charging, though this not a crucial loss.

Performance: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Things I like
Performance is great with the Snapdragon 835 and 4 GB of RAM.
Attractive device with the matte back with a subtle blue hue.
Competent display, though the chin is slightly prominent.
Expandable storage (though the on-board storage is paltry)

Things I don't like
Paltry on-board storage (32 GB makes managing applications a chore)
Lack of QI wireless charging
Lack of ultrawide rear camera
Digital shutter on the camera is somewhat slow

Overall Ratings: ⭐⭐⭐

I would recommend this to users if you can get it for a very cheap price/refurbished (along the lines of 100-150 USD).
