LG G8X ThinQ Review

Score: 10.36/10

LG G8X ThinQ is an incredibly powerful Android device released in 2019, packing a huge 6.4 inches screen, a high performance Octa-Core processing unit speeding at 2.84 gigahertz, a 12 MP back camera and a 32 mega-pixels front side camera.

This cellphone ships with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SM8150 chip, holding a high-tech Octa-Core CPU running at 2840 megahertz and a great 6 GB of RAM memory. A great point of this device is the 128 GB large internal memory and a slot for SD memory cards, allowing the user to store tons of applications, games, pictures and videos without even thinking about filling it.

Apparently LG didn't care so much about the weight in this 6.77 oz phone. This device is a very compact cellphone, considering it has a 6.4 inches screen and it is only 6.27 inches long. Being just 0.33" thick,this cellphone is extremely thin and comfortable. This phone is only available in color aurora black. Talking about its materials, the LG G8X ThinQ is made of Glass (Corning Gorilla Glass 5) and Aluminum .

The LG G8X ThinQ is equipped with two cameras, a 12 megapixels back-facing camera and a 32 mega-pixels front facing camera. Its back-facing camera has a maximum f/1.8 aperture so it can capture impressive photos even in low lighting situations. It is capable of filming videos up to 3840x2160 (4K) at 60 fps. This camera also has time lapse video.

LG packed the LG G8X ThinQ with a gorgeous 6.4 inches screen, and a resolution of 1080 x 2340 , which makes it impossible to even see the pixels composing the screen.

This cellphone counts with an amazing 4000 mAh non-replaceable battery that can keep this phone running for several hours and even reach the end of the day without having to charge it at all. An issue to take into account is that the LG G8X ThinQ's battery is non-replaceable so you can't change it when it starts to lose capacity, even though with such a huge battery size you will probably replace this phone before it becomes an issue.

The LG G8X ThinQ offers wi-fi connection (and it can be provided to other devices around, acting as a modem or router), LTE-A (4G) , a really fast connectivity and also HSPA+ data connection (a lower speed 4G technology) and the fastest 3G data connection, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. The LG G8X ThinQ uses a Nano SIM card to use GSM services.

This cellphone also includes plenty of great characteristics such as Fingerprint Scanner, Wireless charging capability, NFC (Near Field Communication), Bluetooth, GPS Localization and Radio, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This phone may not be a great choice considering it is offerred for $ 700, while other similar devices are being sold cheaper than that. No matter whether you are looking for a work device, will use this device mostly for social networks, you love taking pictures or want it to play games, this cellphone is the right one .
