LG G7 One hands-on: Android One, but one stripped down device
Source: Android Authority English
In terms of pricing, the less beefy specs in the G7 One should make a sizeable difference to the MSRP. LG said in a press release both it and the G7 Fit are “priced exceptionally,” but didn’t say what that price was.

Hands on: LG G7 One review
Source: Techradar English
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.

LG launched a new color version of the premium LG G7 ThinQ called Raspberry Rose. It has a glossy finish on its glass back, same as the old colors (so no frosted glass here). Note that this version is available only on some carriers.
