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

Not ready to jump on the foldable phone bandwagon? The G8X offers a persuasive alternative that's reasonably priced (for now).

The LG G8X ThinQ's second screen accessory gives you two displays, which makes multitasking easier and gaming more comfortable. The water resistant phone also has a headphone jack, expandable memory, wireless charging and an excellent battery life by...

The case makes the phone bulky and thick. When viewing shared content on both screens, there is a thick hinge down the middle.

The LG G8X is an attractive and competitively priced phone in its own right, if you can snag a deal. The useful second screen is also enticing for those unsure about the more expensive Galaxy Fold.

LG G8X ThinQ Dual Screen

 

The LG G8X ThinQ is a solid smartphone on its own, but when paired with the Dual Screen cover, it quickly becomes cumbersome and buggy.

Solid performance. Great audio features. Excellent camera quality.

Poor battery life with Dual Screen cover. Cover is bulky and makes the phone difficult to hold. Fingerprint sensor works poorly.

On its own, the LG G8X ThinQ is a solid phone for the price, with good performance, battery life, and camera quality. The Dual Screen attachment makes it large and unwieldy, drains the battery fast, and introduces bugs you don't encounter when using...

LG G8X ThinQ Dual Screen review: Dual screens for increased productivity

 

Our LG G8X ThinQ Dual Screen review takes a look at one option which adds a very useful second screen to your phone.

LG G8X and Dual Screen Review

 

The LG G8X is a potential alternative to the foldable smartphones of today. It costs just $700, and with its DualScreen accessory, it provides more screen space than you've ever been able to put in your pocket.

Great battery life; Loud stereo speakers; Good-looking display; Reasonably priced

Dual Screen case is frustrating to use and mostly unnecessary; Slow fingerprint reader with no biometric alternative; Software still a bit buggy (as reviewed, build number PKQ1.190522.001)

LG’s improved Dual Screen for the LG G8X includes a cover OLED display

 

Back at MWC in Barcelona last March, LG introduced their LG Dual Screen accessory designed for the LG V50 ThinQ. The Dual Screen accessory transformed the V50 into a full-fledged dual-screen smartphone. Granted, it's not

Only months after releasing their first “foldable phone”, LG is refining their Dual Screen

LG G8X ThinQ Dual Screen, long-term test: Two screens good, but beware bulk and battery life | ZDNet

 

The LG G8X ThinQ Dual Screen is an interesting and affordable alternative to a folding-screen handset, but it does have some significant drawbacks.

LG G8X ThinQ Dual Screen review: For $700, better productivity than the Galaxy Fold | ZDNet

 

While Samsung's Galaxy Fold is pushing technology forward, LG offers up an affordable two screen device that is better for productivity than the Fold. The flexibility to use the LG G8X as a standard Android phone with one screen is a benefit too.

LG G8X ThinQ Dual Screen review

 

The LG G8X ThinQ Dual Screen offers dual screens for maximum productivity and great battery life for a very reasonable price.

It also helps that the G8X ThinQ Dual-Screen is a respectable smartphone in many other ways, with dependable performance, long battery life, a good-if-not-great screen and — last but never least — a headphone jack. The relatively poor camera...
