LG G8 News & Rumors

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 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.

    • Mike, are you still recommending that this beta only be used on on dual psim/esim devices or should it now be basically safe for all devices (with usual beta risks)?
    • A new SignalCheck Pro beta is rolling out right now with LOTS of bug fixes.. and some new features. The full changelog is in the app or on the website. In addition to many bugfixes, there are some notable new options: Colorize location display to indicate low accuracy (yellow when Trail Logger is enabled) or outdated timestamp (red). This is enabled by default. Enable/disable display of location coordinates with location accuracy and the location timestamp.. so now each value can be individually enabled/disabled. Configure the maximum age of location data before Location Service is restarted; the default remains at 10 minutes but can now be configured as desired. Limit max number of neighbor cells to display (including 0, if you only want to see the summary line). Some users are seeing LTE or NR data persist after a connection is lost. I made some minor changes, but I wanted to get this release rolled out before continuing to dig deeper into that issue since I made so many other changes that may or may not impact this bug. One thing that users can try is to disable the option under Preferences > Display Settings > Show Hidden Data -- that may resolve the issue. Looking forward to feedback! Thanks..
    • Yup. It keeps GPS info up to date while logging. 
    • Looks like GPS Status and Toolbox
    • https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/t-mobile-att-and-verizon-gear-super-bowl T-Mobile DAS upgrades and AT&T under the seats antennas are interesting. Hopefully someone gets pictures and details of the under the seats antennas.
