The AGM Glory G1 Pro is the culmination of everything AGM has learned over the years in developing rugged smartphones, all neatly packaged in a smartphone with a glove-friendly 6.53-inch display. 2340 x 1080 high-resolution display is not only glove-friendly, but its cutting-edge technology can even track wet fingers, avoiding those multifunctional moments of failure that phones experience when wet.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg in terms of outdoor functionality, ruggedness, and comprehensive handling capabilities. The AGM Glory G1 Pro is so feature-rich that it’s hard to know where to start! This Article is aimed to introduce a detailed AGM Glory G1 Pro review to learn various specifications and qualities its gains to be really professional.

This rugged smartphone comes with a 6200mAh non-removable battery that will last a long time considering the 1080p resolution and efficient SoC. With the screen brightness set to 50%, I was able to get 2 days of moderate use (including some light gaming), but I know most people will want to know the Screen On Time (SOT).
Again, with the brightness set to 50%, the AOT is 17 hours and 50 minutes, which is a terrific score, but keep in mind that the refresh rate on this smartphone is no higher than 60Hz. I already mentioned that AGM added a QC 3.0 charger in the box, which is great, but I also see that the AGM Glory Pro supports wireless charging. That’s right, you can use a third-party wireless charger to charge your smartphone (10W). This is a pretty rare addition for a rugged device, as I haven’t seen it on any other such smartphone so far (shout out to AGM).
The Glory G1 Pro 5G runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 480, which also powers the XR20 and DuraSport 5G mentioned above. It’s a popular platform but is clearly aimed at an entry-level, price-sensitive crowd that’s more interested in productivity and less interested in playing the latest games.
The rest of the specs list includes 8GB of LPDDR4x RAM, 256GB of UFS2.2 onboard storage, Bluetooth 5.1, NFC, and Wi-Fi 6. The main camera sensor is a 48-pixel Sony IMX582 and a 20-pixel night vision assistant (with two IR LEDs), and last but not least, a 2-megapixel macro camera.
The AGM Glory Pro uses a thermal camera with a resolution of 256 x 192 pixels (25Hz refresh rate), higher than the 160 x 120 pixels of the CAT S60 Pro, but Bullit relies on FLIR ViviIR image processing technology to enhance the images it shows. Thermal images taken with the CAT S62 Pro are better, especially for video. The AGM Glory Pro could be better, but it needs more post-processing. I noticed that the live view and photos look good, but the video quality seems to have dropped off. Also, I would like to see the temperature values horizontally, not just vertically (again, some software tweaks would help).
In terms of everyday use, I think the Glory G1 Pro might be a bit on the large side for some users. Yes, it has a big display and a big battery, lots of protection, and a raised external speaker on the rear. This gives the phone a maximum thickness of 23 mm and combined with the 173.8 x 84.2 mm dimensions, you can handle a very large phone. As someone who prefers a smaller phone, I do feel that the AGM is a bit less, but I also feel that if I managed to drop the Glory G1 Pro in a rock garden or even land on it, it would be more durable during a crash. I’m pretty confident that the AGM would easily survive some pretty serious abuse and still be able to make emergency calls when needed. It’s also IP68/IP69K waterproof and dustproof and MIL-STD-810H certified.
The AMG Glory G1 Pro is what one would expect from a mid-range smartphone. You can play any game, the user interface is responsive, the camera is great, and the battery life is long. The price tag is a bit high, but AGM justifies it by adding the popular thermal imaging camera (which becomes a suitable competitor to the CAT S62 Pro), a night vision IR camera, 5G support, and wireless charging. Whether that’s enough is up to you, and keep in mind that this smartphone likely won’t see the next Android version update.
