I use LG K8 (2017) Dual Sim X240K (i live in Indonesia),
after 1 year, my impression about this phone is
- Great design, elegant, love the rounded edge glass
- Good for light everyday use (good for people that not use lot of apps)
- Double tap to wake is great, very useful
- Both rear and front camera is bright and good on minimal light
- No NFC
- Main camera cant focus on close object (if you take a picture of a document, the content is blur and unreadable)
- Charger have small output, only 0,85 A, takes a lot of time to charge.
- Stuck at Marshmallow 6.0 (Yes, no Nougat update for LG K8 2017 in Indonesia)
It seems there is 2 kind of LG 2018 (2017) on the market.
the one with 3,5mm jack port on top, and one with 3.5mm jack port on the bottom,
be careful when buy a softcase or accessories.
(LG K8 2017 Dual Sim X240K model is the one with 3,5mm jack port on top)
this phone is a disgrace . i changed it with a alcatel and this alcatel is better

StevensRocks, 13 Sep 2018What don't you like about it man? I normally have Galaxy's but this one looked good second han... moreMine responds really slowly since day one. Somehow I though it would get better but nope. Still super slow. I do like the camera but it is also slow to open the camera app and to focus.
I love how it looks but it has definitely a really poor performance. You sure you have this 2017 version?
StevensRocks, 13 Sep 2018Yes it does have NFC, it's right there on the drop down menu on your main screen.Well my doesn't have nfc. Looks like some models come without it.
the phone is laggy and slow with apps like Instagram and Snapchat and the camera is terrible
Camera has terribly slow auto-focus, quite often it takes 2-5 seconds from pressing the trigger to actually take the photo because it is trying to focus the image and after it takes the photo...it is still out of focus...frustrating really, headphone jack went out after 2 months of usage, I thought it is me, but my girlfriends K10 (that was bought at the same time) also suffers the same issues so it seems to be an LG thing...terribly slow phone overall sometimes...

Toothless, 07 Sep 2018Phone sucks man! I really regret buying this phone! Not worth the penny What don't you like about it man? I normally have Galaxy's but this one looked good second hand for £95 so I gave it a shot. Had it for 3 days now and it does everything I've asked it to do so far. Screen quality is good, camera is brilliant and it runs all my apps and games quickly with no freezing or crashing. It is missing a couple of things like a gyroscope n stuff but that's only a small thing compared to the things it can do. Sorry to hear you're not liking yours, seems you'd probly be better off with a Galaxy S5 or newer although from what I've seen second hand models are still pretty pricey coz Galaxy's tend to age well due to all the tech they cram into them. Basically if you're on a budget and want a phone that looks good, is easy to use and has most of the things that the more upmarket phones have then the LG K8 isn't a bad buy. Look on the bright side, at least it's not an Alcatel 😂
Phone sucks man! I really regret buying this phone! Not worth the penny
I;ve had it for 4 months and it is very slow and laggy..
Better as a replacement or for an old person that wont use a lot of apps.
the design and camera are good tho
This phone is very laggy and won't open the camera on the apps like instagram.
I only use it cause I'm poor
