LG G8 ThinQ review

 

Eight ain't quite great, unless you're gaga for gimmicks

Slick design with pebble-like smoothness ; Performance and battery life mostly on par with the competition ; Extensive feature list

Awkward availability in the UK ; Camera picture quality a step behind big-name rivals ; Speaker tech is clever, but doesn't sound all that great ; Gesture controls are pure gimmick

The G8 should be a tempting piece of forbidden fruit, but a few gimmicks just aren't enough to make importing one worth the effort for UK buyers

LG G8 ThinQ review: Safe design lacks that special something

 

Ultimately, for all LG's efforts the LG G8 struggles to be class-leading in any area. That results in a phone that's, well, fine - but not special.

Design and build is safe ; 3.5mm headphone socket ; Some fun camera features ; Can make big sound ; Face Unlock is slick

Limited battery life ; Camera can't keep pace with the best ; Software additions mostly unnecessary ; Air Motion gesture control feels niche

Ultimately, for all of LG's efforts, the LG G8 struggles to be class-leading in any area. That results in a phone that's just, well, fine - but also not special.

LG G8 ThinQ hands-on review: Lost in the crowd

 

Things are looking bleak for LG's smartphone division. Can the G8 ThinQ be its saving grace?

It’s better than last year’s phone, that’s for certain, but as it stands I don’t see anything noteworthy on offer here that could distract your wallet from this year’s already impressive smartphone flagship lineup. My opinion may change when I receive...

LG G8 release date rumours: Will LG's next flagship have 5G and the Snapdragon 855 inside?

 

Everything you need to know about the upcoming LG G8 ThinQ

The LG G7 itself didn't shy away from a sizeable notch, but it would be impressive to see more of that 4K LCD screen (or OLED, if you're listening LG) with less of an obvious intrusion from cameras or speakers. With the rumoured "sound-emitting...

LG G8 ThinQ

 

The G8 ThinQ has plenty going for it, but unfortunately not in the areas that count for most consumers, and gimmicky touchless controls don't make up the difference.

LG G8 ThinQ review: A wasted opportunity

 

LG's new G8 ThinQ packs the performance you'd expect from a modern flagship phone and, as usual, it's a great option for people who care about smartphone sound quality. Beyond that, there's little here to set it apart from this year's early crowd of...

Sleek design ; Bright 6.1-inch display ; Sounds great with headphones ; Solid performance

US model has two instead of three cameras ; Lackluster speaker ; Hand ID is finicky ; Air Motion gestures aren’t very useful

LG G8 ThinQ

 

The LG G8 ThinQ is a top-notch Android flagship that faces stiff competition from less expensive alternatives like the Samsung Galaxy S10e.

Solid performance. Powerful audio. Gorgeous display.

Steep learning curve for Air Motion gestures. Unpredictable software update cycle. Relatively expensive.

The LG G8 ThinQ is everything you look for in a flagship phone. It has a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, plenty of RAM, great build quality, and a stunning display. It's a strong choice for smartphone photography enthusiasts, particularly...

LG G8 ThinQ Review

 

This is the new LG G8 ThinQ. It looks like your typical phone on the outside – with a familiar glass-and-metal construction and a screen stretching from edge to edge – but on the inside, it packs some sci-fi-level stuff. It lets you unleash your inner...

As always, the wide-angle camera is nice having; 128GB base storage is plentiful; Face Unlock works well; One of the cheapest phones with the fastest system chip in an Android phone

Hand ID and gesture controls are finicky and of little practical use; The user interface lacks visual polish and feels laggy from time to time; The design lacks originality

LG G8 ThinQ review: a solid all-rounder which fails to dazzle | AndroidPIT

 

LG unveiled the G8 ThinQ at the MWC, which focuses on a few special features: the display, the selfie camera and new gestures. Is that enough?

Overall, the G8 ThinQ makes a good impression: a solid, well thought-out smartphone from LG that has already proven its worth. The choice of an OLED display that also acts as a speaker, the ToF sensor, a battery of 3,500 mAh (compared to 3,000 mAh of...

LG G8 ThinQ Review: A Good Phone Marred By Gimmicks

 

I wanted to like the G8 ThinQ, after being thoroughly unimpressed by the G7 ThinQ and the V40 ThinQ .

Excellent nighttime photos ; Crystal Sound OLED is great for calls ; Beautiful display

Hand ID is finicky ; Air Motion isn't that useful ; Boring design ; Selfie camera effects are hit-or-miss

LG's G8 ThinQ is a powerful flagship phone undone by novelty features that aren't useful at all.
