Of all the big global brands in the smartphone space, LG is probably the most easily overlooked. The company doesn't have a huge presence in the budget and mainstream segments these days, but still pushes out one premium V-series and G-series model every year. We've liked a lot of what we've seen, and these phones have impressed us with their cameras, displays, and overall performance. More importantly, LG seems to put a lot of thought into its products, with various little features and conveniences that stand out in an increasingly homogenous world.

LG G8s ThinQ Summary

LG isn't a big player in the smartphone market anymore but is still trying. The new LG G8s ThinQ was first unveiled at MWC 2019 but has launched in India several months later, so it now competes against several newer and more feature-rich models. The styling is dated, especially with the extra-wide notch, although that was necessary to fit in a Time-of-Flight 3D sensor and infrared dot emitter for security. Build quality is excellent though, and you get an IP68 rating plus Gorilla Glass on the front and back.

LG has overstuffed this phone with software features and customisations. Air Gestures are particularly gimmicky and we found them frustratingly difficult to use. There's a lot of bloatware and unnecessary animation that seems to bog this phone down a bit. However, performance in games and benchmarks was pretty good.

The display is impressive and we liked the stereo speakers on the LG G8s ThinQ. Battery life was just average. The three rear cameras take excellent shots, even in very low light.

  • Great Flagship phone.
    Vyom on Amazon
    Very good phone.Great Flagship from LGLook like iPhone from frontIt has very good vibration motor .Display is v good.You can compare this phone to S10 .LG has released this phone without any promotion but that's the reason why they could price it so aggressively in India. However they released pretty late in IndiaHopefully LG pushes out Android 10 update to this phone earliest

  • Lg thumbs up
    Hari Krishnan on Amazon
    I was in confusion about trying lg g8s . Because my previous experiences with lg was really disappointing. I had lg g6 which was an excellent device except battery. I had to sell it. Then came lg v30 plus. In every department that phone was extraordinary . But there also lg made customers ran away only because of that mediocre front camera. Then after couple of other phones i came back to lgv40 thinq full of expectations , but sadly felt loss of money . Performance issues battery life problems , camera department utterly failed. Sad to say i suffered big loss again. But still i love this company my mind says i can trust them more than those one plus Huawei etc.. during big billion days i was randomly checking lg devices and shocked to see lg g8s thinq on the list. Never thought second time bought it at once. Sad thing is that lg never advertised their devices properly and majority of people still unaware of this device.Now back to phone. Used for 3 days i was not wrong this time i won my bet . If u can tolerate l g s u.i. and wait for software updats then this is for you, excellent device this time. Excellent camera quality in all 4 cameras. Gorgeous screen. Excellent battery life 7 hrs screen on time on heavy usage. Thanks lg thanks a lot for trusting u r brand.Thanks to Amazon also . 😍😍😍

  • COSTS very competitive in India -an amazing flagship phone
    Surabhi Anand on Amazon
    Please check my youtube channel too "Curator Cast" where i post tech/photography stuff.Lg g8s is a wonderful flagship with great features. It's bad that they take so much of time to launch in india and that too they go unnoticed due to lack of advertising.Its a bit trimmed down version of g8 but some improvements too.I have been using Lg v30+ for more then 1.5 years and its running flawlessly.PROS --Camera setup is great not the best but definately in top 10 ..-even though it uses less megapixel sensor when 48 mp is the new hype , quality coming out in terms of photos and videos is outstanding-snapdragon 855 is pretty snappy-Beautiful OLED display- Corning gorilla glass on both front and back pannel-still has headphone jack- Speaker volume is pretty loud too-air motions using the front sensors-IP68 water & dust resistant and wireless charging-2 tb expandable memory-seperate google assistant button-hand id biometrics using veins pattern recognition-tons of inbuilt features in camera appCONS-no hifi quad dac-air motions are not always prefect-hand id biometrics is a bit gimmicky as its a hit or miss on times-lower ram then other flagships-notch design
