LG G8 News & Rumors

Recommended Posts

Ugh that ridiculous assistant button that's placed way too low is still there. Always gets crushed in my car mount. They couldn't put that on the other side under the power button for symmetry? Yes I know it can be turned off (and it is) but that's not the point. Disappointing.

I will have to pass on the LG G8 and any phone now that is not 5G and WiFi 6-enabled. :(

I got a huge mailer about the G8.  Nothing about it made me anxious to buy it.

I'm going to keep an eye on out for the V50, but I anticipate it will be too expensive.  We'll see what the G8 costs on Black Friday; I may or may not upgrade then.

(Is the rear power button gone for good?)

Given Samsung's quality control issues, it will be very important to see if LG does any better.  Typically takes about a month for any issues to show up. 

Design-wise there is no doubt that X55 modem devices slated for late 2019/2020 are better long term bets.  If the merger is called off, then the V50 becomes more viable since 600MHz 5NR won't matter as much.  Otherwise I want my local tower tribanded to reduce my merger transition uncertainty about my local service and reduce my risk..

Picked up one of these for my wife due to the large service credit to upgrade and the discount from best buy. So far so good. VoLTE was even available in the settings, just needed to be toggled.
