This phone is like cannibalism to V20 unlike the Q6 to G6 which tend to be the lite version. Just bring the water resistant V20 that only available in Japan rather than making this cannibal phone with sealed battery and smaller screen and smaller storage.
Well itÂ’s a small version of v20. This design was popular 4-5 yrs ago such as hisense x1, u980, hp slate 6 voicetab, blackberry z10. So why lg copied from old phone?
Rafaelfilipez, 14 Oct 2017I used the G5 and had issues with the power button which stop working while the fingerscanner ... moreiv been so tempted to order this from Amazon.it but wondered where i stood if anything was faulty. I will definatly buy this phone if it comes to the uk but im not going to import it. Failing that i will sit tight and wait to see if they get it right with the G7. Why the Q8 is only in italy and not available all across Europe is a baffler to me, i mean if they want to sell this phone then release it to more markets.
I used the G5 and had issues with the power button which stop working while the fingerscanner was ok.
Now i bought Q8 hoping to still have an IR enabled phone like the G5 was , but instead two days after buying the Q8, the finger Print scanner has stopped working and doesn't even appear under Settings->Privacy anymore.
Crappy move from LG and I need this fixed or my money back.
I got the phone from Amazon.it.

Renx, 02 Sep 2017Could this phone be released in philippines?? I do hope it is released in the Philippines. I want one! But no updates yet. It's already October!!!
Does anyone know whats happened to the UK launch of this phone. Is it still happening and if so when? There has been no info on this phone since august.
Anonymous, 23 Sep 2017Your all missing the point with this phone. its the only phone thats under 150g in weight (150... moreI totally agree with you, So I am waiting for this model. It is much cheaper than V20 or G6 in Korea. So I am expecting it is same in US also. If this model would be like that, it is gonna perfect. cheaper price with high quality, water proof, lite and good fit for hand, but not too small.
Your all missing the point with this phone. its the only phone thats under 150g in weight (150g is max for not feeling heavy imo), water proof, infrared port, radio, ultrawide angle camera and micro sd slot. These things on their own may not be the best but collectively its the only phone that has them. Thats why i want it, but LG dont want to sell many because they only released it in italy and india. Its kinda like a swiss army knife of phones, making it a more versatile thing to own and use. Just my view on things while everyones chasing Super Retina displays lol
why would anybody buy this crap. lg g6 has much better specs and better looking and i think q8 will launch at higher price than g6
Anonymous, 29 Aug 2017Monstrous bezels...Exactly, monstrous bezel! This phone is supposed to come with 90%screen ratio but then that would make the phone price too high so they decided to put a conventional screen.... May be LG would give it a bang for the buck phone.....
wish this phone would hurry up and come out in the UK. I can find no new information about this. Anyone heard anything? and no i dont want the V30 V20 Q6 or the G6. This phone is very unique imo.
