The LG G8X ThinQ looks precisely like the LG G8. It consists of a sleek, black rectangular glass screen, sandwiched between glossy metal rims. The smartphone comes with a teardrop notch, a USB-C charging port, a 3.5 mm jack at the bottom, as well as a Google Assistant button on its left side. The outer front of the dual-screen display houses a hidden 2.1-inch mini-screen, which is covered by an all-black cover, underneath the front glass display. The mini-screen is summoned when you click on the lock button.
While the smartphone does not look all that exciting, it is not too bad either. The LG G8X ThinQ’s dual-screen works on a semi-foldable basis. Once you turn on the smartphone, a button appears on the right side, which enables you to turn on the second display. The smartphone’s screen is not seamless, as a robust hinge separates it.

Its FHD screen is sharper and brighter than many other FHD screens on the market, making it great for watching movies and soaps.
The dual-screen display comes with a semi-foldable option, allowing you to pair up both screens (separated by a hinge, of course). You can adjust both screens to have the same brightness, or individually adjust them. This is useful when you are watching a movie or video on one screen while surfing on the other screen. Overall, LG has done an excellent job, yet they could have done better with the smartphone’s dual-screen’s resolution.

Playing a game on one screen, and surfing the internet on the other does nothing to deter its performance. You can multitask on its dual-screen, making life more comfortable, and working more convenient. The smartphone comes with Android 9 Pie, and the next upgrade to Android 10 will bring to life features like Dark Mode.

Its field of view stands at 136 degrees, which is a significant upgrade considering most flagship phones have a field of view of only 120 degrees.
The smartphone comes with good daylight photography and a respectable night mode. The smartphone has a 32 MP front camera that performs better in conditions with lots of light. It comes with a software stimulated portrait mode and a beauty mode, which put it in good stead. Overall, the camera system in its totality is above average.
The LG G8X ThinQ is powered by a sufficient 4000maH battery. Considering its draining dual-screen display system, LG could have probably provided for more a more powerful battery. Your battery will last a day when the smartphone is used moderately. The smartphone’s very purpose is not to use it moderately, hence do not forget to turn off the second screen when you are not using it.
