LG K8 Review: In Depth


LG K8 Review: This £99 5-inch mobile offers decent value for money and works particularly well as a second handset for trips. Here's our full LG K8 review.

Smooth performer ; Camera strong in daylight ; Hardy design ; Decent screen

Knock Code unresponsive ; Poor video recording ; Crap battery life

The LG K8 is a solid all-round affordable mobile that gives the excellent Vodafone Smart Prime 7 a run for its money. If you’re after a no-frills everyday handset or a dependable second mobile for taking to festivals and the rest, we’d happily...

LG K8 review: A discontinued, middling Moto G rival


It was fast and had a great design, but the LG K8's camera and underwhelming display dragged it down

The LG K8 does a pretty decent job of matching the 3rd Gen Moto G's speed, but when both phones were exactly priced at £130, the Moto G leapt ahead with its superior display and camera and longer-lasting battery. However, this is no longer the case,...

If you're seeking an Android mobile phone that doesn't break the bank, chances are you'll be considering the LG K8. It's an affordable smartphone with a five-inch screen. We found it to be fast enough for swiping through webpages, but does it have the...

LG K8 Review: The Best Looking Budget Android Phone Around


The high-end segment of the smartphone space is dominated by Apple and Samsung. This has been the case for a good couple of years now, and most other OEMs seldom get a look in.

Great Design; Decent Specs; Good Performance; Great Software

No Android Nougat Update As Yet

I love the way the LG K8 looks. I think it is one of the best looking budget Android phones on the market right now.

LG Phoenix 2


The LG Phoenix 2 is an affordable prepaid AT&T phone with good performance and the latest Android software.

Inexpensive. Latest Android software. Decent camera. Expandable memory. Removable battery.

Lackluster battery life. Low sunlight visibility. Lots of bloatware.

Software and Conclusions As mentioned earlier, the Phoenix comes running the latest version of Android, which is a refreshing change from most entry-level phones we review. That said, I wouldn't expect an update to Android N when it becomes available,...

LG releases fashion-forward, wallet-friendly pair of phones


Flagship phones, like the LG G5 and Samsung Galaxy S7, have a high-end allure to them with lofty prices to match. If spending an arm and a leg for a new phone isn't an option, LG is offering two alternatives, the K5 and K8, that might be a better fit...

LG K8 review


We're struggling to find anything about the LG K8 that isn't average. Although it has a 5 inch HD screen, a quadcore processor and an 8 megapixel camera, so does every other phone in the ~�150 mid-range - many have better specs than the K8. The phone...
