This seems like a nice phone. But I heard LG is very bad with software updates. Is that really true?
Avishek, 10 Apr 2019Do not buy LG phones , I never faced issues like LG on other devices. I used LG phone which i... moreAnd i still own and use every day my LG G2 and it works perfect especially in screen quality.
Guys please dont focus only on reviews
I have S9 Plus Exynos version if i use web browsing in 30% brightness for 1 hour my phone will drain 10% in 10 hours the phone will be switched off but in the reviews they saying it will lasts 11 hour 15 mins in 50% brightness
And in reviews they saying we can use s9 plus maximum 32 hours in normal use but in normal use i have used my phone for 51 hours and i plugged in at 20% i have used 80% Battery in 51 hours
If anyone want to know which phone has better battery then go to phone shop take the trial phone on the camera just take a video of bright area in 4k for 10 or 15 mins and see in which phone drops more battery in 10 or 15 mins Lg g8 or Samsung S10

Anonymous, 10 Apr 2019I know right! The if v30 is beautiful in almost every way, but not perfect. I dont see any bet... moreperfect? Tell us please which phone is perfect. No company has been able to build a perfect phone and most probably no one will. Either you are just hating LG or you are simply a fanboy of Samsung/Huawei/Apple.
currently out of all the phones available in market I found this phone in the top category. it has all the top specs along with 3.5mm Jack. although the endurance is not long enough but it should get better with the size of the battery, maybe a software update would fix that.
I am seriously considering this one to buy as my 6S plus is old enough.
Decisions, decisions... What phone should I get to replace my Nokia 8?
Should I get this phone for the great camera performance and the gimmicks but wait for a few months to be cheaper than S10e?
Should I wait to get a Huawei Mate 30 or wait to get a rumored SD855 Nokia phone?
Or I should be getting Meizu 16S for the first true Allscreen design and the innovative FlymeOS skin?
Do not buy LG phones , I never faced issues like LG on other devices.
I used LG phone which is V20 for 2 years and got Scren burning problem and even I have 2 phones both got same issues, Company says to change LCD for 6k , However I use SONY phones more than 3 years never have issues also on other company phones.
LG is very bad LCD maker.
These OLEDs are much more power hungry than I anticipated them to be.
The XZ3, Sony's FIRST (take note, FIRST!) OLED smartphone, achieves so much better results despite the similarities in specifications (I know it's 6" vs 6.1" vs 6.4", but as if these tiny screen size differences are going to have a big impact on efficiency, and besides, their batteries are larger accordingly, with the XZ3 also being the smallest in capacity).
Have I forgot to mention how many average consumers also preferred the Sony screen more than any other OLED smartphone?? Well that's out of the scope of this topic, but it's only to assure that the display on Sony is really great, as it might be an excuse that the reason why it achieves great endurance is because its display quality is poor.
LG and Samsung need some work on optimizations. It would be dazzling when the Xperia 1 with 4K HDR OLED achieves 80h rating....
Thanks, GSM arena! Well balanced review this. I am watching this phone alongside Note9 and you are helping me to decide wisely. R.
LG G8 camera is better than mi9? Then iphone XR is better than G8?
but the dxomark of mi9 is higher than XR. hmm .. which is trust?
That battery life is sketchy. Pretty sure a day 1 patch will come to fix that but then again, it IS a 2K display...guess SnapDragon 855 isn't as efficient as we all had hoped. If HTC/Essential were to come back, they better go 5,000 mAH+ batteries. Huawei so far is the king of efficiency this year.
JohnW1981, 09 Apr 2019My Xperia Z4 tablet had the same, if not slightly better battery life than my Galaxy Tab S3I so envy you.
Z4T wasnt sold here.
Could not find even on enay to buy.
Better than iPad.
Nick.B, 09 Apr 2019why usa did not get the rear 3-cam setup? that's some big mistake.Because G8s is not worldwide model.
WTF is This to be counted as Cons : Charging speed is not competitive compared to most brands.
even supporting QC4.0 still no comparable to most brands for this site , and S10 even still supporting only QC2.0 and no mention to this on Cons review
Really those US reviewers are harshes again on LG phones
So, horizontal arrangement of cameras on the back, fingerprint on the back, of course, notch, what can I say, great work, LG! /sarcasm

I dont see any better from them recently. I do hope they go back to a similar design and add new upgrades. Perfect size and amazing battery life. Audio is great but cameras could be better.
