LG G8 ThinQ Review

Score: 84.3 / 100

LG G8 ThinQ is a breath-taking Android phone released many years ago, having a very fast 2840 MHz Octa-Core processing unit, a big size 6.1-inches display, a 12 MP back-facing camera and an 8 MP front side 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 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 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 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 device features an amazing 3500 mAh Li - Polymer non-replaceable battery that can keep it running for many hours without having to charge it at all. An issue to evaluate is that this cellphone's battery is non-removable so you won't be able to replace it when it starts to get older, though with its 3500 mAh you will probably discard this phone before it happens.

LG is selling the LG G8 ThinQ for about $ 215, which is quite close to other similar cellphones. It doesn't matter whether you are looking for a gaming cellphone, will use this phone for work, want it to take many photos or want this cellphone mainly for internet broswing and social networks, this phone is probably the correct option for you. LG sells this phone with Quick Charge 3.0 charger, Clear case, USB Type-C cable, Stereo headset and SIM tray opener.
