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.

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: many gimmicks, not enough progress


It checks a lot of boxes, except the ones that really matter.

Comfortable to hold ; Quad DAC yields great sound quality ; Face Unlock is fast and easy ; Improved battery capacity

Piezoelectric earpiece replacement isn’t loud enough ; May not receive timely software updates ; Hand ID and Air Motion are gimmicky and don’t always work

LG usually overhauls its G-series each year, but comparing it to Apple’s smartphone naming conventions, the G8 is more of an “S” upgrade to the G7 ThinQ. Many things about it are the same, but there are a few improvements that might interest you. Most...

LG G8 ThinQ Review


Like clockwork, LG is releasing its 2018 flagship high-volume smartphone: the LG G8 ThinQ. Designed to address high-end usage, but at competitive...

Very good value for the price ; Excellent dual-camera ; Blazing-Fast Performance ; More compact design

Battery capacity lower than competitors ; Less competitive aesthetics

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.

Hands on: LG G8 ThinQ review


More evolution than revolution from LG's 2019 Android flagship

Innovative Crystal OLED Sound ; Vast audio features ; Punchy, high-contrast OLED screen

Seemingly temperamental motion gestures ; All-too-familiar physical design
