christopher afro, 27 Nov 2016The phone is super or not ??I got the blue one. Nice. 60+ hours with wifi/mobile data and without them combined :)
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.
LG K8 should get Nougat update too, according to rumors but LG haven't said anything officially yet.
Anonymous, 14 Sep 2016Which one is better LG K8 or Samsung Galaxy J3I had an LG G3. Had to have it replace under warranty because touch screen went out. Then, just a couple of weeks ago, the back light went out. Screen was completely Black. But no warranty anymore and not Upgrade time. I have always loved LG. However, knew I had to get inexpensive phone. Got the Samsung Galaxy J3V. I could not be happier. It does everything my G3 did with a few exceptions. This Samsung J3V was definitely the way to go.
Raven69nu, 14 Oct 2016This phone is the biggest piece of shit i have ever owned. Every time i switch from from data ... moreSame problem with my k8,and now dont work 3g only work slow mobile internet,sorry for bad english
Swarb, 16 Oct 2016I like the phone - display, quite quick moving between features, etc. The enormous let down is... moreAndroid 6.0 has Adoptable storage option in which it takes a memory card and makes it part of the main storage to expand memory greatly. However this is a non removable option, as if removed your phone may not work correctly. Keep that in mind.
I like the phone - display, quite quick moving between features, etc. The enormous let down is the pitiful 8GB memory which is not enough to support its own updates. I have Facebook, messenger and Twitter - FB and Messenger are moved over to SD card with all photos and videos - so only Twitter along with original features of phone, with 7.2..something left. I have had to delete google apps to free up some space, just so that the phone is able to do what it should do. Not fit for purpose sadly.
