Quite good phone for the cost, maybe not the best but certainly not the worst either.
It has bad camera and battery is also an issue (can hold 1day at max if you don't play games much) and camera even though it is 8mpx (at 4:3 aspect ratio) has really bad low light performance.
Memory size like with most android phones at this here is whole system memory, so system itself will use up majority of it (you're left with around 3.5gb).
LG disabled adoptable memory by default so if you want to enable it you have to do a bit of searching online (You wont have to root your phone for that btw, just few commands typed from the PC )
It does not have light sensor so you have to adjust brightness manually.
Worst phone to buy..I bought it n its a headache since then..first 8gb internal is a spam..you permit to use only 3GB bcz 5 gb is system occupied..then marshnallow dont suoport external storage to be set as internal which is brightest feature of marshmallow. I used lenovo for 2 years..n i miss it..

I bought this phone LG-K8 24 hours ago and sick of it already. Whenever I press the power button to unlock the screen it takes 6 to 10 secs to appear. Don't know how many users have faced this problem or its just my set particularly. Wifi goes off quite often, sometimes I have to restart the device in order to make it work again. Please do let me know if someone has faced any of the above mentioned issues.
if you wish to buy a new phone.initially think about the features what you need.lg k8 is'n so bad.i'm using it for 2 weeks.camera and battery are the main drowbacks of this.i use a camera rarely.so it isn't an issue for me.please don't depend on user reviews.check for the features that you want..this isn't bad as a midrange phone.don't try samsung either.they are the worst.
Knight, 05 Oct 2016Is it possible to get the 5 ghz wifi?it doesn't have 5ghz wifi support at least in 6735 chipset model
if you have problem with low storage you can enable Android 6.0 adopted storage but it's not enable default. you have to enable it manually !!! just by search the internet you can find manual instructions
the main camera program is so bad . use Google camera previous versions and finally camera will really better .
I bought this phone 2 days back..its internal is 8gb which is 5gb pre-occupied by system you get to use only 3gb..camera is also not that good..I waisted my money..if you wana spend this much, try samsung or huawei instead
If you have the money for this phone on hand, just buy a Chinese knockoff. It will cost you less for a better phone if you do a bit of research.
Right, onto the phone.
Pros - The screen is pretty damn great, very responsive and quick, decent selfie camera for the price (but could be better). The SoC used in this device is good, with plenty of grunt for any games you might want to play.
Neutral - 1.5GB of RAM, okay for the price but a Chinese brand would have more. Dual sim card variants, which is helpful for people who don't want to carry 2 handsets (mine is only single card though. Have to carry around my old brick as well).
Cons - The camera is absolute GARBAGE. My Prestigio 4322 takes better pictures than this thing, and that phone is 4 years old and cost LESS when it was new. The memory - LG has done something borderline retarded (and I don't use that word lightly) by blocking the ability to merge SD and internal storage. I get planned obsolescence, but this is just idiotic. You have access to ~2GB of storage on the 8GB model - this would be considered good, if it was 2006. Now, you download Skype and a game and you're out of memory. There is a way around this, but it took me a whole day to do it, and I am well above the "average" for computer savvy-ness (Not meant to brag, meant to show how much of a hassle it would be for most people). The solution is the one used on Samsung phones (as they went this route as well), and can be found with a quick google search on how to merge SD and internal memory for Samsung phones.
Overall - It's not a bad phone, but if you don't care about "brand recognition" (as it should be), then you should just get a Chinese brand phone for around the same money. The camera is a total deal-breaker for me (too late now, already signed the contract. I should have checked first, but how was I supposed to expect such a horrible camera in a phone from 2016?).
Horrible horrible camera. I thought since i havent shoped for a phone in 5 years cameras are all decent. My 3 dollar chinese website webcam takes better pictures. Not to mention my 6 year old sony xperia. I am very dizzapointed. I would return the phone nbut i dont think i have a good basis for refund.
