have you noticed V50s/G8x OLED screen had tinting issue? it's obvious especially if you are using it in a very dark room and the brightness is set on the lowest levels. try to use Display Tester app under Burn-In detection slide the green and red sliders to check.

It has good features like QuickMemo+ If they are still on new lg phones, give you good screenshot when phone has navigation bar. it could be better if gives screenshot instantly without writing tools. Lovely phones they were but not good performance on all model, and battery dead after 3 to 4 years of use and hard to find new battery that works.
David, 06 Aug 2020Lg great. Something different. Everyone has a Samsung but not everyone has a LGg8xAbsolutely right brother
Overall product is nice but automatically switched off..
Great clarity of screen

However LG follows slow charging in comparison to its main competitors which in turn keeps the battery healthy... and I always try to keep charge between 25 ~80%. But it not always possible... I understand that.
LG flagship phones are very close to my heart... for oblivious audio reasons... but they are never my primary phones.
RishiGuru, 02 Dec 2020The label on the LG G8X retail box clearly states:
Voltage, Wattage: AC 150-240V, 16.2 watts
... moreThere's one more thing I wish to add.
There's an app called Accubattery on the Play Store. It has quoted few research papers across the world, claiming that you can extend your battery life by 3 times (211% increase) by just charging your phone upto 80% and not beyond it. The app has a built in 80% charge alarm.
These scientists claim that battery heat is greatly reduced by this, thus enhancing battery life.
With LG's service availability somewhat of a question mark for now, I guess I better follow this method.
The only problem I'm facing is that my phone remains connected to Laptop for tethering and file transfer, and then it gets charged a lot... hardly have I seen it go below 40% recently.
One more thing I didn't quite understand, in cons you mentioned, "Unimpressive 4K video recording across the board"
But, you're basically appreciating them inside the review itself, with exception that there's just average detail.. You say, "Regarding quality, the 4K videos from the main camera turned out to be nice - the dynamic range is commendable, the noise is low, colors and contrast are simply excellent."
So, what's the real situation?
@GSMA: Guys, this statement is a bit inaccurate:-
" The front of the (Dualscreen) case is all glass, dark gray or black - it's hard to say. "
In my observation, it bends under pressure, and also its reflections also distort if you apply pressure on it. So, its a sort of plastic or something.
can any user shed his experience on how good is gaming on this phone ?? can it play games in high frame rate and full hd.?? im planning to buy this.

Anonymous, 15 Dec 2020@Rishi, where you purchased, online or offline?Flipkart, BBD sale during Diwali festival period, 2020. I am from India.
Oomph, 18 Oct 2020They apperently sold 1 lakh units of lg g8x during flipkart sale. I also got one at 18.7k I got mine on the same sale @ INR 18K [$245]. For that price with the Dual Screen case slapped in there is nothing on the Indian context that can come close to it.
Extremely happy with the purchase. LG G8X is an excellent device if you know how to use it. For $245 there is nothing that can come close to it.
Boreas, 11 Oct 20200-100 charging time?
How's the camera quality?
The label on the LG G8X retail box clearly states:
Voltage, Wattage: AC 150-240V, 16.2 watts
This indicates LG G8X will support a maximum of 16.2 watts of power from any wall charger. LG after the Samsung Note battery fiasco have been using a very sophisticated and expensive battery charging tech (named QNI) made by Qnovo. QNI ensures prolonged battery life while safe fast charging.
This QNI tech on my LG V30+ used dedicated hardware found embedded in Snapdragon SD835 SoC (any SD8XX SoC from SD835 onward) and very special algorithms to precisely monitor the battery 30,000 times (you read that right!!!) during a single charge from 0 to 100%. On real time QNI will calculate and provide the optimal power to battery for fast charging. Sony uses this same QNI tech in their flagship phones after their battery burn fiasco. However this a very expensive tech and Chinese companies do not use it. They provide high wattage chargers to destroy the battery in no time while advertising super fast charging.
This QNI tech in LG smartphones required wall chargers to output power very different from standard 10 watt (5V x 2A) & 18 watts (9V x 2A) chargers found abundant today. In comes LG's own wall charger with below rating:
5V x 1.8A = 9 watts
9V x 1.8A = 16.2 watts
I own a pair of these chargers from my pair of LG V30+'s. With my LG G8X I use these LG original chargers which matches the 16.2 watts power rating. The lightning sign (representing Fast Charging) which is present in the dual screen tiny charging adapter is also present on the wall charger. Charging with LG's original charger also shows Fast Charging on my G8X's lock screen.
Below are the charging times I found on my G8X using LG's original 16.2 watts charger with battery completely depleted to 0%.

0 to 100% -> 4000 mAh -> 132 mins -> 2 hrs 12 mins
No matter what I do, G8X will take more than 2 hours to go to 100% battery. However with such small difference, my advice will be to always keep the 'Optimized Charging' turned on so as to further prolong the battery life.
Too many flaws in Lg g8x
1. When using single screen without dual accesory. There is no split scren option
2. When using dual screen i have app lock installed . but when dual screen is ON the app lock does not work on secondary screen.
3. Network signal reception is very bad. Same network on other mobiles are of better signal.
4. Even after notifications kept off the whatsapp messages are visible on notifications
