*The LG G8 used to develop this video was a pre-production model. Check with your local retailer for final product availability.*

LG’s flagship smartphone’s are often unfairly overlooked. This year’s G8 uses a vibrating screen as a speaker, and lets you unlock the device by reading your palm! But are these gimmicks good or garbage?

LG has the worst screen in the industry. Light bleeding and image retention are common complaints. If you're out of warranty, then it becomes your burden. LG should take responsibility for the devices they sell and should repair or replace defective units even if it's out of warranty. It might be best to look for a better product.

As someone who appreciates good music quality with wired headphones, I do love the DAC in my G6 a lot. I actually just love my G6 anyways. It's still plenty fast, and I love having the back lock button/fingerprint reader. I didn't like LG's skin either, but I just use a different launcher and customize everything anyways, so that never really bothered me.
Jeremy McMillen
This explains why the hell the dam thing always feels like its on speaker. (I work for an airline loading and unloading bags and cargo so I am in a loud environment) and this is the first phone I have had or used in a while where I haven't had to keep my call volume on the loudest setting with a volume boost. I have this thing set to medium and have still had to turn it down and even tell people no I am not on speaker but this thing sounds like it is all the time. But deep down I love the fact that I can hear it even with an APU running right behind me and even with several jets taxing past.
Laurel Dunn-Scott
Yeah two camps should really be looking at buying this phone. One is those who really value that quad DAC. ( But if you're in that camp you probably already own the LG v40 or v30. ) Or those that want flagship specs, on a carrier supported phone at a good price. At $600 I'd say get it. ( That's how much mine was. ) At is original price of $850 ,I would pass.

The boom box speaker is meant to help throw the sound off a surface thats its laying on and if u do some research it says its for that reason I am sorry but they jump to conclusions way too fast because its not a samsung or iphone or pixel that all have the same features. Big props to lg for trying something new yes it a little slow but guess what its new feature hasnt been tried.

I have a good feeling the one plus 7 won't have a headphone jack. But if it does then the LG G8 will blow itself out of my mind. It's still a good phone with the great headphone jack and screen.

LG has totally lost its way. They stopped making grownup up devices after the G6. They don't know what they want to be anymore. That display of hand wringing, crimping and twisting above the phone was cringe worthy. Embarrassing. LG needs to recall this humiliating bullshit and go back to the drawing board and come up with a mature device and try to regain the respect they had five years ago

George Kountouris
I just picked one up from Verizon, if you add a new line it's 20.42/month x 24 months. The trick here is that you add a new line, activate it with whatever phone number, then trade your phone number from your old device to your new device, and then cancel the new number attached to the old phone line, is a workaround that will allow you to keep the special offer, yet not have to maintain an extra line that's not being used. Anyway concerning the rear fingerprint sensor- it works well and quickly, it's located in a perfect spot and it responds quickly. Had it on the G2, V20 and it will thankfully be on this phone. I think it's great even if the tech is dated, if it's not broke why break it. That hand gesture thing is a complete gimmick and will be disabled as soon as I get the phone- that's a complete waste. Personally if I could design the perfect smart phone it would be the LG V20 (that will allow me to change the battery or add an extended battery) with a modern processor, screen (but flat not these curved ones) updated cameras and new OS, a plastic body is fine (glass is fragile, metal can interfere with reception). A bit utilitarian for people that value functionality and purpose over aesthetics. Sorry to diverge.

I would have LMAO if he had said "it has 128 gig of EEPROM" Morons would have lost their minds. They would have had to go get a glass of dangerous Dihydrogen Oxide and choke on it LOL. Black bars on top and "bottom" of screen, talking about the Palm. What is this, the '90s channel?

These guys should really play and test it BEFORE they show it off. This makes it look so bad. The air motion didn't work cuz you're supposed to pretend like you're grabbing an air knob. Gimmicky yes but other than that it's just an extra feature to use with the new added Z camera. Horrible video that makes the phone look so bad...

Glad to see LG utilize old Kinect hardware in their phones. Great use of old tech. It even works as well as the Kinect!
I mean the LG G6 didn't have a camera bump either it was smooth and flushed in so I don't know what the big deal over the G8 not having a camera bump is about.
This LG G8 won't have Android Q until late 2021

LG G Series: Great hardware under the shadow of terrible, confusing, misleading, non-working, poor written, underdeveloped LG software. It's been like that for at least 4 years. Just move on, Samsung got you covered.

The only thing I've ever missed from my LG G3 was the Copy/Paste HISTORY function! I don't know what it's not a part of Android by default yet. Other than that, the interface is fine (better than Samsung) but not as good as stock Android.

Suprising the audio is bad given lg tends to focus on audio. But it is really cool how you were able to hear the call clearly even in a loud environment.

Hey guys plz review this phone again because u can change the speaker out put noise in setting instead of noise coming out from middle it can be changed to top and linus clearly sucked at using air motion next time use a better test subject and u forgot to mention about the wide angle camera and the fking f1.7 aperture front facing camera with tof tech.
