LG G8X ThinQ Review: Is this the way foldables should be?

 

If the dual screen accessory was something that drew you to the LG V50, then you should certainly consider the LG G8X ThinQ Dual Screen

Good main camera;Decent battery life;Has a headphone jack, a good one

Dual screen accessory is clunky;LG UX interface isn't the prettiest;No zoom camera

LG G8X ThinQ Dual Screen review: Double the fun?

 

An experience that's comparable to other flagships, with an extra display as a unique feature. It's not a true folding phone, but it's far cheaper.

Dual Screen is unique ; Great for multitasking ; Good battery life ; Good value for money

Software lacks refinement ; Fingerprint scanner a little unreliable ; Bulk of case/second screen

An experience that's comparable to other flagships, with an extra display as a unique feature. It's not a true folding phone, but it's far cheaper, and great for multi-tasking. However, It's just all let down a little by a software experience that...

LG G8X ThinQ review

 

Two screens when you want them, one for when you don't. Sounds great, but...

Optional second screen is a real head-turner ; Flagship performance and features ; Stellar battery life (as long as you're sensible with the second screen)

Software that properly supports second screen thin on the ground ; Dual screen case is bulky, proprietary charging pins annoying ; Camera still lags behind Android greats

LG's G8X is something of a halfway-house, with software and hardware quirks holding back what's otherwise a very capable premium phone

LG G8X ThinQ review

 

The LG G8X is a novelty when paired with the LG Dual Screen - an affordable alternative to pricey foldables with its own smattering of neat features.

Affordable two-screen solution Neat gaming features Dual Screen handy for watching media

Somewhat wonky multi-screen software Poor fingerprint sensor Limited multi-screen features

The LG G8X's appeal may be niche, but it's an interesting concept that offers an alternative to foldable phones that gives budget-conscious buyers more screen for whatever they want to do on their phone. While the core device isn't too exciting, it...

Hands on: LG G8X ThinQ review

 

The LG G8X ThinQ is the latest attempt from the South Korean firm to take advantage of our multi-tasking tendencies while also trying to get a jump on the Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X , by offering up a sort of hybrid foldable phone ....

Dual Screen cover much improved It has a headphone jack

'Only' has a Full HD+ screen Bulky with Dual Screen cover on

The G8X ThinQ has refined LG's dual-screen setup, making it a more symmetrical, usable feature. If you're looking for extra screen real estate that still fits in your pocket it's really the only choice at the moment.

LG G8X ThinQ review: Hands on with LG’s hinged folding phone

 

LG improves on its dual-screen phone design and you'll actually be able to buy this one in the UK

First impressions of this one are more positive than the original LG G8 but we’ll have to wait and see. At least LG has committed to bringing the G8X to the UK and Europe. We await review samples with interest.

LG G8X ThinQ review: More screens aren't always better

 

As a standalone flagship phone, LG's new G8X ThinQ doesn't stand out -- it's perfectly adequate. Attach its Dual Screen case, though, and things suddenly get more interesting. Combined, these devices offer a taste of the multi-screen life other...

Relatively inexpensive for a multi-screen device ; Dual screens can be good for multitasking ; Plenty of horsepower

Promo deals might not last forever ; Dual-screen experience is rough around the edges ; Cameras can’t beat the competition ; Magnetic charging adapter isn’t stable

LG G8X ThinQ Dual Screen review

 

Don't call the LG G8X ThinQ a folding smartphone. It's not one of those mega-expensive devices, and it actually has three screens and not two. What is it, then? It's a quirky device for serious multi-tasking. However, like folding smartphones, you're...

Dual Screen case is unusual ; Some genuine multi-tasking benefits ; Well-priced ; Tough, water resistant body

The folding LG G8X ThinQ Dual Screen phone is a quirky multi-tasking monster

LG G8X ThinQ review: the "foldable" LG smartphone | AndroidPIT

 

LG interprets the theme of folding smartphones differently from Samsung and Huawei. But is the G8X ThinQ with its two extra displays a good idea?

For $699, LG offers a smartphone with two screens that's versatile, more robust and simpler than a collapsible smartphone with a complex and fragile flexible display. But the question of whether this type of product can inspire the mass market is...
