LG needs to get with the times and make a popup camera phone. The notch and these holes are hideous. To dedicate a part of the screen to something that rarely gets used is so stupid.
Good phones, but LG tends to price their hign end phones too high in the market. If they price it lower they should sell more I think. That way it would be a bang for your bucks. And they very much need to try to market the phone in some wat or another. Remember the time of the LG chocolate sliders, ads on tv and in newspapers, billboards, radio, just everywhere.
Hopefully G8x prices will come down with this release in EU. Though LG launches are ususally late.
This is still a much better option that lot of flagships with features people dont need.
Pricing and battery life will be the main deciding factor.
AnonD-907885, 04 Jan 2020Tell me a tablet that's under 170mm in length, go on.155mm is absolutely the maximum. 5.8-6.0 is perfectly enough. Don't understand this trend as bigger as better.... horrible
LG used to be my admired phone industry until they started copying others phone designs and specs. With this design and specs. nothing here to excite me lest i will just be wasting my money for this unreflected design and specs.
civilian, 04 Jan 2020I do agree that LG needs to stop gluing the battery in permanently. But that Jerry guy is not ... moreBut to be fair, he was using a S8+ before that for 2.5 years. He probably got accustomed to Samsung software & didn't want to switch brands. Note10+ was the right upgrade for him.
Personally, i don't want companies to seal the batteries like that. It is a anti-consumer move. But i wouldn't boycott a phone just for that reason though.
Mm four cameras. Main, wide (135degree), periscope (5-10x optimal zoom), 3d or infrared camera??? I hope it is!
Why does LG always find a way to copy Samsung phones, not to mention their UI has been a shitty copy and paste for years.
Last times I stopped reading news about news devices because even before reading I realize that it will be a huge oversized crap. Going to keep relatively compact P30 for years as there's no compact alternative on nowadays market.
Anonymous, 04 Jan 2020Now to see if they keep the super duper ultra mega sticky battery glue they used on the G8.Tha... moreI do agree that LG needs to stop gluing the battery in permanently. But that Jerry guy is not the best example to bring up imo. Since for the grief he gave about the G8 having a permanent battery and him talking about not recommending phones with permanent batteries anymore, that dude switched to a note 10, a phone with a permanently glued in battery. He's a hypocrite.
This would be one of the least flawed flagships to come out in 2020. It has a flat display (which a lot of people still prefer over curved). It has a headphone jack (again, a lot of people want this too). A waterdrop notch (better than a full notch). A simplistic design (Ideal for professional environment).
Sounds good so far. Perhaps LG will get back on track.
Anonymous, 04 Jan 2020You're screwed on updates/support if you do not have a Korean variant/model.That's true I guess. However the G8 has already received the Android 10 update via some US carriers and by LG standards that's very fast. Last year the LG V40 launched with Oreo and it took them like a year to push the Pie update.
>The LG G9 measures 169.4 x 77.6 x 8.8mm, 9.4mm if you include the camera hump
Another oversized brick. Anything over 160mm tall is basically a tablet.
One word: COMPACT.
That is why I stopped buying flagship phones. Every company nowadays makes premium phones with screen sizes bigger than 6.5". Useless.
