Earlier this year, LG announced the launch of its newest smartphone, the LG G8S ThinQ™. This phone was released in April this year and was priced starting at around $820. Depending on various carriers, the price for the G8 ThinQ™ fluctuated between $820 and $850. Design wise, it is slim, and definitely pleasing to the eye.
The LG G8 ThinQ™ looks sleek and has some attractive features. Crystal Sound OLED technology makes the screen itself the speaker, making call clarity top notch. You can unlock the LG G8 ThinQ™ using features like Hand ID, 3D Face Unlock, and Fingerprint ID. Hand ID uses your palm’s vein and hand patterns to unlock the phone. With Air Motion, the LG G8 ThinQ™ can be used without a physical touch. The front camera recognizes hand movements and allows for you to function the phone as per the gesture used. You can answer calls, snooze alarms, change music, skip songs, increase or decrease the volume as well! Can be especially handy when your hands are dirty, or wet and you need to access certain functions.
The G8 ThinQ™ runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 process, 6GB of RAM, and has 128 GB of storage, giving you ample space to keep photos, videos, games, and applications. The camera is not the best of all smartphones, but still is pretty good. The colors are sharp, vibrant, and have deeper and warmer tones. The super-wide-angle lens allows you to capture images with a 107-degree field of view. The LG G8 ThinQ™ also comes with a setting called Night View, which is a low-light setting, giving your pictures better color and exposure at night. For video recording, you can take advantage of bokeh for sharper focus and a softer background. The feature isn’t as smooth as you would find in an SLR, but still provides room for experimentation and play, giving some dramatic feels to the videos.
The LG G8 ThinQ™ phone can be ordered through a variety of carriers, such as AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile. You can also order for an unlocked version of the phone through LG’s official website.
