Design and Display

It is quite clear that aesthetics was top priority when the smartphone was being built. The LG Q8 (2018) is crafted in a way that it has a smooth finish with nice rounded edges. You can also count on LG to throw in their military testing procedure meaning the smartphone is water and dust proof with an IP68 rating. The smartphone comes with a centrally placed single rear camera with flash and fingerprint scanner tighr under it. I wish to also mention that the smartphone come with a stylus pen.

You can say the smartphone has a typical 2018 notchless display on the outside which pretty much sums it up. It has miniscule bezels at the side but much more prominent at both vertical ends. What you have on the smartphone is a 6.2-inch space for display. Items displayed on the screen are fairly colourful with nice viewing angle owing to a resolution of 1080 X 2160 pixels and the IPS oanel.

Battery and Camera

The LG Q8 (2018) sips juice from a standard battery featured on most smartphones with a little on top. In that regard, it is powered by a sufficient 3, 300mAh non removable Li-Po battery. To make things easier, there is quick charge on the smartphone for a faster top up.

Intelligent Retargeting Engine

Taking a detour from the dual trend that is overtaking the smartphone space, the LG Q8 (2018) has a single camera on the front camera and back. Manning selfies on the front is a 5MP camera which is certainly not stellar but could handle your needs relating to social media uploads. The main camera on the rear is a 16MP camera with flash below it.

Hardware and Software

There’s not much going on inside the LG smartphone with a little better than entry level SoC. Tasks on the smartphone are at the mercy of an Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 as well as an Adreno 506 GPU. The memory space is 4GB and storage space is 64GB expandable to 512GB with aa memor stick. Also, there is Android 8.1 Oreo preloaded on the smartphone from LG.
