    Had no problems with this phone until charger port suddenly stopped working, have to use wireless charger currently to keep it running. Great screen, good sound. If not for it having charging issues within the first three months I would highly recommend.

    The screen quality, sound quality and soon profile make this a great phone. It is also the slipperest phone I've ever used. I recommend a phone protector right away.

    Would have given it 5 stars but it won't pick up a roaming signal and some Bluetooth devices won't reconnect without turning Bluetooth off and back on. Otherwise, good sound on calls and for music. I like the enhanced music options. It's fast with any apps I use. Good picture quality (I'm not a photo expert). Good display.

    I got this as a upgrade for my wife on sale through Sprint, her previous phone was a Galaxy S7 Edge. For 320.00 this was hard to pass up. This G8 compared to the S7 Edge, is much faster. The 855 Snapdragon processor is snappy and fast. Apps load without a hiccup. Ive always heard bad about LG phones, but cant find any myself. The phone oled screen is very crisp and colors are punchy. Animations and pictures look great. The rear fingerprint reader works better than the one on my S10+ imo. The included 128gb of built in storage is great, tgat will never get filled up, plus added a 64gb sd card for pics and videos. The 6.1 screen size is perfect, not to big or small. The phones wireless charging works great, always enjoy not having to plug the phone into a cable to charge. Just set it and forget it. I grabbed my wife a Poetic case with built in screen protector on Amazon for under 20.00, much nicer than the overpriced Otterbox Defender cases, which many no longer come with any screen protection. The only downside of LG phones from what Ive read, is LG takes for ever to rollout firmware updates. I hope thats not the case, but oh well... The battery seems to last throughout a days use, which is great. On my wifes S7 Edge, she would charge it numerous times throughout the day. The time of flight camera for facial recognition unlock works great, I wish my S10+ had this feature, works nicely everytime. Another nice but untalked about feature is the flush cameras on the rear of the phone. If you can pick this phone up on sale, I would highly reccommend soing so.

    Im not big on hype. Had Samsung and LG phones never did I phones. Love this new LG phone. The reviewers are super critical. Some are pretty silly with the comparison and reviews. My last phone was a Samsung. This LG G8 is awesome! Music sounds incredible and the screen and cameras are awesome. Purchased from Best Buy. Couldnt be happier. Bought 2. 1 new line for 10 a month and an upgrade for 13 lol. Its a no brainer the Samsung phones are 3 times that much! And are not better phones. Had weird glitches with the Sammy totally smooth with the LG. Do yourself a favor buy 1 befor the sale ends!!!!!!

    Love this phone!!! Music sounds incredible and the screen is unbelievable!!!! The reviewer's are not paying attention to their reviews. May be burnt out. Their oponions are just that. And swayed by very personal pref. Not a tru or fair assessment of the phone. To be fair never had an Iphone. But bounce back and forth between Samsung and LG. I like them both. Think both are awesome phones. Loved my G2. Fav. Phone was lg g3. Then a note 5 was ok kinda glitchy and no real updates. Now the LG G8 . Another awesome phone . fast with a great screen lots of customization and the best music player out there. Nothing samsung has sounds this good. So if you want a real users opinion. Buy it now while its 50% off and the x 100 from best buy makes it a no brainer! I bought 2. Lol added a line and upgraded. 10 a month and 13 a month to own and a 2 year warranty.Whats to think about
