LG G8 ThinQ Review

Score: 10.57/10

LG G8 ThinQ is a breath-taking Android phone released two years ago, equipped with a Octa-Core CPU speeding at 2.84 GHz, an enormous 6.1" screen, and 2 cameras, a 12 MP back side camera and an 8 megapixels front-facing camera.

LG decided to build this cellphone using a great Octa-Core CPU speeding at 2.84 GHz, bundled in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chip with a great 6 GB RAM. This cellphone comes with a huge 128 GB internal storage and an SD card slot, enough to store tons of applications, games, songs, photos and videos without having to worry about filling the cellphone.

This cellphone is available in 3 different colors, aurora black, carmine red and platinum gray. About its construction, the LG G8 ThinQ is built with Glass (Corning Gorilla Glass 6) and Aluminum . The LG G8 ThinQ is much lighter than what you expect from a device this size. The LG G8 ThinQ is a compact cellphone, taking into consideration it presents a 6.1" screen and it's only 5.98 inches long and 2.83" wide. This phone has a beautiful design, with a thickness of just 0.33 inches.

LG packed this cellphone with a incredible 6.1 inches display, and a resolution of 1440 x 3120 , giving this phone a high level image quality.

This cellphone provides wi-fi capability (which can be provided to other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), 4G LTE-A really quick data connection and also HSPA+ data connection (which is a slower 4G type) and the fastest 3G data connection, over HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This device uses a Nano SIM card for GSM carriers.

This device has two cameras, a 12 mega-pixels back camera and an 8 MP front side camera. Its back camera lens has a f/1.5 aperture so it can take clear photos even in poor lighting conditions. This cellphone can also capture videos in 3840x2160 (4K) at 60 fps, and slow-motion videos up to 1280x720 (HD) at 240 frames per second. This phone also includes time lapse video.

This device features an amazing 3500 mAh Li - Polymer non-replaceable battery, which isn't too much for a device like this. An issue to consider is that this phone's battery is not replaceable so you can't buy a new battery when it begins to get older, while with such a great capacity you will probably discard this phone before it becomes an issue.

This phone also comes with a wide variety of useful features as Fingerprint Reader, Facial recognition biometrics, Wireless charging, NFC, Bluetooth (5.0 ), GPS Localization and FM Radio, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This phone costs about $ 820, not so cheap for comparing with similar devices. No matter if you will use it as a social cellphone, want it to take many photographs, need a cellphone for work or want this phone for gaming, you will definitely love this phone. If you buy this phone you will also get USB Type-C cable, Quick Charge 3.0 charger, Clear case, Stereo headset and SIM tray opener.
