LG G8 is similar to LG G7 but might seem overpriced to some when it comes to alternatives that offer more features. Although it is a good phone, it still doesn’t offer any significant upgrade from previous G series models. However, LG G8 has one of the best processors and a great screen with impressive battery.
The phone also includes some advanced features such as Hand ID to unlock the phone and mid-air gestures to control volume. Although these functions are difficult to operate and can be offset by its hole-less speaker and video portrait mode, this still doesn’t justify the overpricing of the device.
The top of the phone is smooth metallic, and on its left, you will find the power button and hybrid Sim/micro SD card slot. At the bottom of the device, there is a USB-C charging port and 3.5mm headphone jack. The phone has a dedicated button to switch on Google Assistant and also harbors the volume control buttons on its right.
The specification of the phone includes P-OLED technology for enhanced display. The size of the screen is 6.1 inches and supports resolution up to 1440*3120. The phone runs on the latest Android Pie so you can have your apps updated on the go. Running on Octa-core processor and Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset the phone provides blazing fast speed and works perfectly without any lags.
Pros of G8 ThinkQ
- High-end processor with great battery life
- Excellent audio quality
- Gorgeous display that works well in low light
- Hand ID is hard to operate, and Air motion is not so useful
- Boring design with almost the same spec as its predecessor
On the upside, the phone can run high-end mobile games, and its built-in 128 GB storage ensures vast availability of space for your favorite applications. In conclusion, G8 ThinkQ is an impressive phone, but with a price tag of around $800and an unimpressive design, it doesn’t beat other flagship phones from Apple and Samsung.
