Losanjo, 06 Aug 2020No bro,i been using lg devices for long lg g4 v20 now the g8s no such heating issuesAnd how about battery longevity?
This is a downgraded phone that is trashy. Older LG phones have FM radio, a compass app, better sound quality, better privacy from Google, no phone notch that makes wide videos look trashy, a silenced camera app that could be used for people who have been kidnapped, no sounds when the LG phones are being turned on to keep people from being disturbed when they're trying to sleep, better quality pictures from the camera app, no forced screen timeout that turns off the screen that's bad for users who are trying to cook and read recipes at the same time with their LG G8s ThinQ, and there is no improvement in the default File Manager app nor the default Music apps to make them be more useful for practical tasks. LG G8s ThinQ is a trashy toy that is a downgrade from its predecessors. Also, the LG company isn't updating the hardware in LG phones. Which is why I don't intend on having any hope for the LG company. I downloaded apps to mute the camera app, to force the screen on so I could be able to cook and read recipes more easily without having to charge my phone in Developer Mode, use a compass, have a better app for listening to music, have a better File Manager app, and to listen to the FM radio and I downloaded all of those apps without any intrusive advertisements because I want to fight for my privacy from Google advertisments and the governments that promote online surveillance to brainwash people.

There is no FM radio available with this phone! I tried the LG FM radio APK, but no success so far.
Bought this smartphone 7 months ago and after 7 months I was traveling towards home from somewhere. while traveling, I was about to reach my home for 5 mins suddenly rain got started and it was heavily rained while reaching to home so my mobile was in my pocket and on the way I got totally showered and my phone too was like all over water on it so it was in the night I thought it's an IP68 rating waterproof smartphone so I think nothing will happen I dry up the mobile with cotton cloth neatly and In the morning while I was eager to use my mobile & I used it for more than 1 hr & suddenly my mobile display was like varying its brightness and color I got shocked and like what the hell happened to my mobile, the screen was dimming black and white for 2-3 hours and mobile got switched off then I tried it to charge and switch ON but it was not responding. so I kept the phone in rice bag for 2 days even though it didn't helped out so I handed over to customer care. so it is still under service
GSMarena, why no test this smartphone? No battery life, no camera test.. Why. I wait test on this phone.

Battery lasts one day for me, camera is pro, no lag etc. I think that is the best option for this price. Only con , it takez 2 hours for full charge.

Jumanji, 25 Jun 2020Does the fingerprint scanner work also as a power button?No, there is a separate power button on the upper right hand side.
LG G8S will receive Android 10 with LG UX9 in Q3 2020.
Ravent, 06 Jul 2020hi. This smartphone or Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite 5?
Thank youXiaomi UI tend to drain our battery, easily get hot chip, low quality build.
Better LG, imo.
This phone is great, I got mine for 330€ and I believe it is one of the best phones for the price. The face unlock is really fast and I've tested it with different people and tricks to try and hack it, but hasn't happened. Also I managed to smash my phones screen by accidentally driving over it with a lawnmower. The screens bottom part was completely smashed but the phone itself keeps working, I tried to get a new screen from official repair shops, but only place that said they can get the part offered a price of 250€. So to save some money and see if I can pull it through I ordered the part from online and got it changed in a local phone repair shop for total half the price. The replacement looks and works like the original and all other components seem to work as well too. The camera is great and I believe it is on par with other flagships. Yes I understand that there are better ones out there, but it seems that at the current level of cameras and phones, the difference for a regular user, is so small that you cannot justify double the price for a better camera etc. Only thing that I am not a fan of is the size of the phone. Yes its better to view content and do some light work with bigger screen, but it seems quite difficult to find a compact phone at a reasonable price.
Hey all, thinking of getting a new phone and it's between the G8S and Axon 10 Pro (non-5G).
The ZTE is 80€ cheaper at 300 where I am, I don't do a lot of video recording, my previous phone lost its headphone jack a year into its life so I haven't been using it for 2+ years, I'm all BT now... I can't seem to decide... Any thoughts would be appreciated
