Recently got this phone from my employer for a work phone. I have never been an LG fan of phones but so far this one is treating me well. Time will tell!
I love the LG phones. Not so much the bloatware. I bought mine renewed at $176. Now they are $129. This is a flagship phone. When it boots up, it says "Verizon". I think It updated to Android 10 when I got it, then 11 and now 12. It was deadly fast under Android 11. Now on 12 it has lags and when you swipe something off the screen it could take 5 seconds sometimes. I hope they fix that soon. My WiFi at home gives me 866Mbps. That seems incredibly fast. I haven't used a sim in this phone but will try to put Tacfone sim in soon. With google voice you don't need a sim. To drive around with google maps, I have another LG with a sim. It charges fast with QC 3.0 when I wake up and plug it in. There are so many camera functions it needs a youtube video to learn them all. overall - if I can get it to work with Tracfone (who is owned by Verizon) then I'll buy another one as a backup. As for audio - OMG it's great! It's like listening to a top end home stereo. My only minor complaint is Bluetooth 5.0. Inside a building you can use it about 100ft away line of site, but outside I can't find a bluetooth that doesn't cut out even when it's in my front shirt pocket. It may be a 5.0 fault, as I can't remember having this problem using a phone with 4.x bluetooth. So - when I walk the dog I just use the phone speaker from my shirt pocket.

Rareart1, 13 Feb 2021Thanks for your input. welcome dear
Is this a curved screen phone like the Samsung Galaxy or is it flat with a side bezel? I can't tell from the photo and description.
So...it stated that the lg g8 has LTE-a which means you can have the 4g+ network.....but why there aren't a single button to turn it on.... I can't even use volte and vowifi....btw i use the lg g8 verizon unlocked
As of 2021, and with android 10, solid phone. Great screen, Great camera, no lag, and the price. And since LG wont make phones anymore, it may fall even more.
Diggi, 12 Jun 2020Lg G8s everything is ok... But IR booster not availableIt's so funny how much better actually the G8S is compared to the G8, even while G8S is a "region specific budget variant" and EU never got the regular G8.
G8 has mediocre battery life, G8S is total opposite of that, the calling speaker is worse on the G8 but much better on G8S, but G8S has a bigger notch because of it.
G8S has all 3 cameras too.
G8S is actually the better phone in most regards, it does lack the quad-dac the G8 has but from my own comparison the G8S has a solid audio too, just not as fancy if you use 24-bit FLAC files and only then.
anybody can assist me for converting mms to sms... LG G8
thank you so much and staysafe......

LG Flagship phone ... unbelievably poor performance.
Call audio is disgraceful ... call audio is muffled and also caller cannot hear me properly
WiFi reception is consistenly poor compared to my old S9
Android apps work differently on the phone (watsapp calls come in without a Pick Up option)
Too many more ... tainted my view of LG
Love the Community, 16 Apr 2019I haven't researched but does that work with my ATH-M50x?Yes. I have the same headphones and they sound amazing on my LG V20 with the quad-DAC in the headphone jack. You need to turn quad-DAC ON in the audio settings. I was considering getting the G8 ThinQ but my V20 is still running OK except for the battery being old. I am swapping batteries 5x a day as aftermarket batteries are pretty much junk.
