LG G8X thinQ - Lets Welcome the Newest Member

 

LG just released their update to the LG G8 and it comes with a twist. included with each purchase LG is now including a DUAL screen accessory. This is what makes this purchase so impressive. With the market shifting to foldable screens this is LG initial release into this market. Instead of a full screen option. LG is now including an option secondary screen that can be added on when wanted. 

 

The LG G8X comes with pretty decent specs:

The Add-On accessory gives you an additional 6.4 inch screen made to look exactly like the original screen (notch included). The additional screen also doubles as a case. it is hard plastic design with texture engraved on the back. It has a full glass front with a small display for time and icon notification. The back has a large cutout for the camera and the logo. When put together this device feel very solid. I'm not going to lie this weighs a good penny but keep in mind you are doubling your screen size.  The hinges feel like a great construction and allow for a 360-degree fold. this creates a sort of make shift stand to set the phone down for view-ability.

Enjoy the ability to add wide viewing and stretching web pages across both screens for better view. though the center hinge does cause a good deal of separation you are not losing any view as the extended display truly does extend with no chopping of words being seen.

 Let's not forgot a few of the reasons to use this accessory is for multitasking. Opening 2 full applications together side by side.  you can easily move an application to the other screen by flicking three fingers towards the screen the application should move to or you can select the swapping option in the menu.

There are many advantages to having a dual screen device and some I will touch on later like the gaming option but wanted to bring to light this great addition that has been released. you will not find a better deal than this. As of posting this article the phone retails for $749.00 or lease it for only $15/Month 0.00 down. 

 

Enjoy and remember never use your phone or tablet while driving, be safe and healthy.
