The cell phoneLG G8 ThinQ is a complete cell phone and with exceptional technologies that, even though they have not been able to prove their current benefits, give us a sample of what we could see in the future in all phones.

This LG cell phone has been ignored by many since before it was available and it is to be understood taking into account that the company's last generations of phones have been overshadowed mainly by Samsung, Huawei and Apple cell phones. In addition, LG has confused many consumers by releasing versions of their flagship phones with important differences in features (as happened with the LG G6).

That said, the LG G8 ThinQ is an interesting phone that is worth considering, especially if you plan to buy it unlocked (in places like Best Buy, B&H, etc.) or on T-Mobile because it has a much more attractive price.

We collect here the main reasons to buy the LG G8 ThinQ or not to buy it.

Reasons to buy the LG G8


The LG G8 ThinQ is one of the most complete cell phones on the market and as you can buy it for US $ 619 in T-Mobile, US $ 649 in Best Buy or US $ 699 in B&H, it is one of the best cell phones you can buy today at that price.

Its main competitor is the Galaxy S10E, which is Samsung's smallest high-end cell phone, but although they share many of its features and functions, it is generally priced at US $ 749.

Sound quality with wired headphones

LG continues to differentiate itself from the competition by offering a high-fidelity amplifier that allows the sound quality through wired headphones to be superior to what most of its competitors offer.

Effective 3D facial recognition

The reality is that all kinds of Android phones in the entire price range have facial recognition; The bad thing, however, is that the vast majority is 2D which is not very safe since in low light conditions it has difficulties to function properly.

The LG G8 ThinQ with its Z Camera and other sensors allow the phone to offer 3D facial recognition, which is very fast, safer and does not even require swiping to start using the phone.


As I mentioned, the LG G8 is one of the most complete cell phones on the market because it not only has the same Snapdragon 855 processor of the Galaxy S10 (at least in the United States), but it has 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, slot for microSD card, IP68 water resistance, traditional headphone jack, can be charged wirelessly and has an OLED screen that reproduces vibrant colors and good detail.

Galaxy S10E

It may be that sometimes the Galaxy S10E is a bit more expensive, but it integrates many of the same developments (traditional headphone jack, microSD slot, IP68 water resistance, wireless charging support and AMOLED display) and has reversible wireless charging, its Interface is a bit more refined and its screen with holes is a bit more modern. In addition, it can be purchased with more storage and more RAM.

Little differentiation

The main differences of the LG G8 ThinQ with the other brands are: the best sound quality through headphones, the Z Cam camera that brings 3D facial recognition and offers gestures in the air to control the cell phone, and the possibility of recording video with blurred background.
