Arvind Kumar, 11 Jan 2020Nope they are legendDepends for who. If a most basic phone with most basic phone cost 200 there isnt nothing legendary.
They are either good thiefs or something far worse.
Well LG sis another company like Siemens or Sony Erricsson or Gionee or HTC which deserve an end of their phone lines.
They offers nothing exciting and their even the lowest of the low devices cost too much.
Im about to leave LG after 10 years.

Motherboard problems happen because of viruses (can be fixed) and all that. In rare cases, the parts are at fault.

All they need is a G9 with the same stuff as the 8 but with stereo speakers, 90Hz refresh rate, Sony's 60MP sensor, and 5,000 mAH battery minimum along with charging at least $200 cheaper than the Galaxy S20. Then a 5G V60 with the same specs only bigger battery and they would get back on track.

No one can persuade me otherwise since my G3 and half a dozen G4's owned by friends and family died within 2 years with the same motherboard failures...

Pull tabs are cheap, simple & effective. We should be criticizing all companies which do anti-consumer moves. Be it LG, Samsung or any other.
In any case, my comments were not meant to offend you or anyone else. Cheers.
Anonymous, 06 Jan 2020That comment was about the G8S, not the G8.the comment was about Both G8 and G8s and also both do have ToF and 3 Face Unlock
quote :"The rather wide and busy notch on top ....didn’t add enough functionality to justify its unsightly existence."
G8S has Z-CAMERA witll all FaceID and Airmotion. Thats why notch is wider.
Whackcar, 06 Jan 2020Both are heavily glued with no pull tabs. Both get bent during removal. Stop being a ignorant ... moreOk so far I have been called a Xiaomi fanboy by a Samsung fanboy and now a Samsung fanboy by an LG fanboy.
Double sided tape is not easy to remove, yes, but permanent adhesive is even worse than that. I swapped the battery of an S8 and the back glass was way more difficult to remove than the battery (took me 2h for the glass back alone). I used isopropyl alcohol to loosen the glue.
As far as I know isopropyl does not have an effect on permanent adhesive.
I am also well aware of Samsung switching to glue. I don't know what kind of glue that will be though. I already switched to another brand aswell.
