The minimalist LG G8 will attract anyone who’s looking for a minimalistic design among the gaudy sets present in the current market. It comes with these pros and cons:

Pros

  • The LG G8 comes with a dull and sturdy design suitable for crowds who go for minimalist architecture.
  • LG G8 has a potent display with bright colours following the superior display of LG G7 closely.
  • With the Snapdragon 855 chipset, LG G8 keeps its performance blazing-fast.
  • It comes with the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack.
  • It has wireless charging as well as USB Type-C port.
  • No in-display fingerprint scanner.

 

Cons

  • The battery life of this phone is not the best and can barely chug through the day.
  • The audio features are not loud enough to satisfy.
  • The rear camera is decent but does not produce the sharpest photos when compared to its competitors.
  • Air features are useful but are mostly for a niche market.

The LG G8 is a nifty set, but it is more attractive for a niche market. It does not stand the ground when compared to its competitors. Unless you are a die-hard LG fan, this phone is not a recommended buy.
