Score: 77.2 / 100

LG Q8 is a completely fascinating Android cellphone launched back in the year 2017, counting with an extremely powerful Quad-Core processor ticking at 2150 megahertz, a quite big 5.2" screen, and 2 cameras, a 16 MP back facing camera and a 5 mega-pixels front side camera.

LG decided to sell this cellphone with a very fast 2.15 gigahertz Quad-Core processor, packed into the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 MSM8996 chip and a great 4 GB of RAM memory. This phone has a 32 GB impressive internal storage and an external memory card slot, which allows the user to install hundreds of applications and even the heaviest games available nowadays without even thinking about filling the phone.

The LG Q8 is incredibly slim, being just 0.31" thick. The LG Q8 only has 5.87 inches long and 2.83 inches wide, but it's still able to fit a a 5.2 inches display. About its materials quality, this phone is mainly manufactured with Metal . The LG Q8 feels much lighter than what one would think about a cellphone like this. This phone is available only in color gray.

This cellphone has two cameras, a 16 mega-pixels back side camera and a 5 MP front camera. this cellphone's back side camera lens has an aperture of F1.8 so it can take clear photos even in low lighting situations. It can also capture videos in 3840x2160 (4K) at 30 frames per second, and slow-motion videos in (HD) (1280x720) at 120 frames per second (4 times slower than reality). This device also counts with time lapse video.

The LG Q8 is equipped with an absolutely amazing 1440 x 2560 (Quad HD / 2K) 5.2-inches screen, which makes everything look absolutely perfect.

This phone packs a 3000 mAh inmense Li - Polymer non-removable battery that can keep it running for many hours and even reach the end of the day without having to charge it. An issue to evaluate is that this device's battery is non-replaceable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it starts to lose capacity, whereas having 3000 mAh you will probably replace this phone before that becomes an issue.

This cellphone provides wi-fi capability (which can be shared with other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A 4G super quick internet connection and also HSPA+ connectivity (which is a bit slower 4G type) and the fastest 3G data connection, supported by HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This cellphone uses a Nano SIM card for GSM carriers.
