LG G8 ThinQ is in itself an amazing phone. It’s priced around $820 – $850 depending on the carrier. Moreover, it still retains a headphone jack. So for all the wired headphones lovers, this one is for you. The G8 ThinQ also gives stiff battle to its competition, the S10E.
The design on the LG G8 ThinQ is very generic. Standard dual camera setup with a plain back. Nothing flashy. No punch-hole display or a completely bezeless one. Just a regular notch.
LG G8 ThinQ Specs
On the front we have a 6.1 inch OLED screen with a Quad HD+ (3,120 × 1,440) resolution. It even supports HDR10. The brightness of the display is sufficient for usage in direct sunlight.
Adapting to the modern trend of skipping a top earpiece altogether, the G8 ThinQ comes with a piezoelectric vibrator which produces sound through the display of the phone itself. The sound quality itself is amazing and there’s some decent amount of bass as well.
This phone is great for the audiophiles out there. It supports DTS:X 3D and rocks a Hi-Fi Quad DAC. Thus with the right headphones, you’ll experience amazing spatial sound which will truly be a pleasure for your ears.
As per the internals are concerned, the G8 ThinQ boasts the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor under the hood, coupled with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage which is expandable via a Micro-SD Card.
Powering this flagship is a 3,500 mAh battery which give you the power to barely pull through the day. It also has native support for QuickCharge 3.0 which charges the phone in 1 hour 37 minutes so that’s a relief.
In the camera department, we have a 12-megapixel lens with an f/1.5 aperture and OIS paired with a 16-megapixel wide-angle lens with an f/1.9 aperture and 107 degrees field of view. The Camera produces some stunning photos which are quite detailed. Not only that, it also works fabulously well in low light. On the front is a 8-megapixel f/1.7 sensor and a time-of-flight camera.
The G8 ThinQ also brings in a new feature called Hand ID and AirMotion. The Hand ID is a biometric authentication method which uses both the cameras on the front to make a map of your hand veins and then unlock the device. AirMotion lets you control your device without actually touching the screen using gestures by hovering your hand over the front cameras.
Both of these features sound amazing. The implementation, however, is not very solid. They sometimes work and sometimes don’t. It feels more like a gimmick. It runs LG’s own skin on top of Android 9 Pie which is full of bloatware.
The phone comes with a well-placed Google Assistant button and is available in Red, Silver and Black color options. Overall, the device feels very premium and has flagship specifications. It more or less offers the same features as the $100 more expensive Galaxy S10E.
