Flagship smartphones from LG don't often stay in the limelight long after their launches, as many of their competitors do. OnePlus and Samsung, on the other hand, have much more significant portions of the audience's mindshare. The South Korean company is now trying to make a mark with its own take on a foldable smartphone, with the LG G8X ThinQ. This new device can work like an ordinary smartphone, but also lets you double your screen space with an add-on display case that is bundled in the box. The G8X ThinQ is priced at Rs. 49,999 in India, including the display case, and this is the first time such a product had made it to our market. Is it useful or just a gimmick? We've tested it to find out.

LG G8X ThinQ Summary

The LG G8X ThinQ sports a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with a tiny water drop notch at the top. The bezels are thin on the sides of the display while the bottom chin is slightly thicker. It has a dedicated Google Assistant button and is among the few phones to still retain the 3.5mm headphone jack. LG also bundles a dual screen accessory with the device which helps connect a similar display to the phone.

The LG G8x ThinQ smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC and it comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage. It packs in a 4,000mAh battery and has support for fast charging. The LG G8X ThinQ runs LG UX 9.0 on top of Android 9 Pie. The device also has a Hi-Fi DAC feature and supports DTS:X 3D Surround sound. It offers good performance and the device is capable of handling anything you throw at it.

LG has stuck with a dual-camera setup on the LG G8X ThinQ with a 12-megapixel primary camera and a 13-megapixel wide-angle-camera. The phone clicks decent photos in daylight and low-light photos were also good. Video recording is another strong point for the LG G8X ThinQ.

LG G8X ThinQ Price in India

LG G8X ThinQ price in India starts from ₹ 33,999. The lowest price of LG G8X ThinQ is ₹ 33,999 at Amazon on 25th November 2020.

  • Fabulous!
    Bhupendra Juvatkar (Oct 18, 2020) on Flipkart
    Excellent Flagship Device in affordable price! The second screen is very helpful for multitasking. You could run two different apps actively on the LG G8X ThinQ. You can use one of the two screens as a gamepad while a game is displayed on the other. No lag or stutter during playing games. It has a pretty decent camera. Low-light camera performance is quite good. Also has an external 2.1" monochrome Cover Display. Go buy it!

  • Terrific
    Anuraag Roy (Sep 4, 2020) on Flipkart
    Your ultimate companion! Pros: 1. Two screens (both OLED). 2. Easily detachable main screen. 3. Tons of multitasking capabilities. 4. Back cover hard as rock. 5. Front display acts as mirror. 6. Dual screen has its own benefits. 7. Crisp user interface n display. 8. Multiple camera modes taking advantage of the dual screen for various functionalities. 9. Fingerprint resistant body. 10. Water n dust resistant. 11. 360 hinge, helps matters. 12. Bang for buck phone! Cons: 1. Please mention if you find any. Regards, Anuraag Roy

  • Premium flagship with some unique innovations on the plate.
    Chayan Chakraborty (Nov 6, 2020) on Amazon
    Innovation at its peak. Like no company would have dared to launch a phone like this. Screen quality awesome. Rear camera awesome. Battery life with single screen is good but average with dual screen which is obvious. Premium phone. Lg is a brand to trust. Sound quality is amazing. Sound recorder is top notch.

  • Removable dual screens are much better, plus you get a flagship inside!
    Bala J (Nov 11, 2020) on Amazon
    I got it for about 22k, in _f_kart. Even on LG website it sells for 24k plus offer, don't know why it is high in here!In short, the dual screen is handy during> Gaming> working on excel, sheets or word> Reading> EditingKey Highlights:~~~~~~~~~~~~? Removable Dual screen? MHL support for HDMI? 3 screens in total? Magnetic USB-C connector is very handy and ease of use? Camera quality is very good, multiple tweaks possible? No overheating on extended use or gaming? Most of the apps work in dual screen? Headphone jack with Quad hires DAC? Excellent audio, comes with earphones in box? No charger though? Military grade toughness for water, dirt, etc? Front and back fully covered with glass? No performance lag or delaysSometimes the mobile with dual screen feels bulky and a bit heavy!. However you get a back cover with the box, which you can use if you are not planning on dual screen.Except for the battery while operating in dual screen, no shortcoming for this underrated mobile. Battery usage is very high during gaming on dual screen!.If you use dual screen for long time, make sure you keep a power source to plug in!
