LG G8S ThinQ Review

Score: 10.34/10

LG G8S ThinQ is a breath-taking phone launched in 2019, provisioned with an enormous 6.2 inches display, a high speed 2840 MHz Octa-Core processing unit, and 2 cameras, a 12 megapixels back camera and an 8 mega-pixels front side camera. That's everything we have to say? No, it's just the starting point of a much deeper review.

This phone is for sale in 3 colors, mirror black, mirror teal and mirror white. Talking about its construction materials, the LG G8S ThinQ is manufactured with Glass (Corning Gorilla Glass 6) and Aluminum . This cellphone is quite a compact cellphone, given that it has a 6.2" display and it only has 6.11" long and 3.02" wide. This device is just 0.31" thick, making it one of the thinnest phones you can find. LG made a really good optimization job making this phone weight just 6.38 ounces.

LG equipped the LG G8S ThinQ with a great 6.2 inches display, and a 1080 x 2248 resolution, giving this cellphone a delightful image quality.

LG decided to equip this cellphone using an extremely powerful Octa-Core CPU clocking at 2840 MHz, included in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 system chip with a great 6 GB RAM memory. A great aspect of this cellphone is the 128 GB big internal memory and a slot for an SD memory card, allowing the user to install hundreds of applications without having to worry about how much memory is left.

This cellphone is equipped with two cameras, a 12 MP back camera and an 8 mega-pixels front camera. It is capable of capturing 4K 3840x2160 videos at 60 fps, and 1280x720 HD slow-motion videos at 240 fps (8 times slower than regular videos). The camera also features time lapse video.

This phone comes with a big 3550 mAh Li - Ion non-replaceable battery that provides this device a good battery life. An issue to take into consideration is that this phone's battery isn't replaceable so you can't buy a new battery when it starts to get older, even though with such a big battery you will probably buy a new cellphone before that becomes a real problem.

This device features wi-fi connectivity (which can be provided to other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A (4G) high bandwidth data connection and also HSPA+ connectivity (a bit slower 4G variation) and fast 3G internet connection, over HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This cellphone works with a Nano SIM card for GSM connection.

This cellphone also features a great numbre of great characteristics like Fingerprint unlock, Biometric facial recognition, Wireless charging compatibility, NFC (Near Field Communication), Bluetooth, GPS and Radio, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

The LG G8S ThinQ is a great choice for you if you are looking for a gaming phone, are an amateur photographer, want it majorly for social networks or need a work cellphone.
