Nowadays, phones can be quite costly. The better the specs, the newer the device, the more it costs. Fortunately, LG is cognizant of this and created a high-end device for a great price… the LG G8 ThinQ.
The LG G8 ThinQ is a beautiful device. When you power it on, the first thing you’ll notice is the gorgeous 6.1” QHD+OLED display (564 ppi). LG is known for their beautiful OLED television screens, well now you can enjoy that in the palm of your hand! The 19.5:9 FullVision OLED display also directs sound towards you (it is a speaker)!
This device is narrow enough to fit comfortably in your hand. The dimensions are…5.98" (H) x 2.83" (W) x 0.33" (D), Weight: 5.89 oz.
Should you have any mishaps… it is IP68 dust and water resistant. This means that it can be submerged into water for levels of 5 feet for about 30 minutes and still work fine afterwards. Simply dry it off with a soft, clean towel.
It also is shock-resistant and is MIL-STD 810G tested, which means it should do well with your slip of the hand device drops. It also has damage resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for the front and drop resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 6 for the back.
What about performance? LG has you covered. The device comes loaded with Android Pie (9). It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Octa-core processor. It also has 6GB of RAM (pretty impressive, as many laptops today have 6GB of RAM). With that processor and RAM, this device is pretty fast!
For storage, it has 128GB on-board storage (103 GB of usable storage) which is expandable with a microSD card of up to 2 TB. Battery life is no joke either… as this device has a 3500 mAh battery (23 hours of talk time and approximately 21 days standby). The charging port is USB Type-C and it also supports Qi wireless charging and Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0.
The camera is very nice as well. It has a 12MP Standard and 16MP Super Wide-Angle rear camera, and an 8MP Standard front camera. The camera has a lot of great features that are unique that you’ll want to try out!
All in all, this device offers A LOT for the cost. If you’re looking for an iconic, high-end device for a good value, the LG G8 ThinQ is the device for you.
