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 review: LG's flagship can't beat the Galaxy S10E

 

The LG G8 is a solid phone, but without any standout features, it doesn't beat Samsung.

The LG G8 ThinQ has a bright, sharp screen, a second wide-angle rear camera and a fast processor. It's also water-resistant and has a headphone jack -- a rarity among premium phones.

The phone's touchless hand controls are annoying to use. Portrait mode for video isn't very smooth or natural-looking.

The LG G8 ThinQ is an objectively great phone, but with a high price tag and no standout features, it's not great enough to beat the Galaxy S10E.
