    I like how fast this phone processes on multiple memory draining apps I use on a daily basis. I also like how the camera takes decent pictures in dim lighting. And I have noticed that you can boost the volume of your phone call to where you don't need to have it on your face to communicate if you choose not to. The only thing that needs more work is the air control feature, it might detect my hand gestures 50% of the time. It worked better indoors for me. But my personal reasons for getting this phone was the speed, long battery life and picture quality more than the air motion and speaker feature. It fit my needs very well so its a great phone! I also appreciate that it came with a clear phone case and nice ear buds too, that was a plus!!

    Got the 15$ a month lease which is amazing for a phone of this caliber. I agree with others who say that the "experts" are simply overloaded and have missed the boat on alot of things that common users will come to appreciate with the G8. First off, the speed, memory, build, display, sound, and cameras are all top notch... those all qualify this as a competent flagship.... Battery life also is excellent compared to my V30 which I returned for this... The bottom line is that any competent person who goes with this device will, over time, learn the insides and outs of its functionality and probably come to love it... The core components of the phone are solid and reliable and not 'gimmicky' compared to other competitors. But that's OK... you can get the phone at a great price due to Samsung's dominance and the allure of the Huawei that the majority of Americans won't ever own... I'd say this a smart choice for many consumers.

    I just want to say I adore this phone. I've had it for a little over a week and it's super! The tech reviewers are way too overly critical and biased. I've seen mostly positive reviews from regular people. I upgraded from a Samsung Galaxy S8 and like this phone a lot more. I did own an LG G6 for a week a couple years ago and returned it because it would not pair with handsfreelink on my Honda. The G8 pairs perfectly. I also owned an S9 for a week before returning it for the G8. LG G8 has a flat screen, yay! Very nice to look at. The phone is big, but not a giant. Feels fine for my medium sized hands and I can reasonably use it one handed, no problem. It's not heavy either. I had a Huawei Mate 9 for a few months and had to give it to my husband because it was just a bit too wide and heavy. Hurt my hands. LG G8 is just right. Sound is good. I think the S9 sounded a little better. The boom box speaker on the G8 is neat, I like that there's a good quality headphone jack with the G8, too. DTS-X is helpful (helps sound quality. @@@@@@@ The sound is excellent over Bluetooth. The screen speaker thing is alright. I don't love or hate it. It's practical in keeping the speaker protected under the screen and I guess it gets a bit louder because they say it's bigger. No issues with calls. I can hear everyone well. The speakers also get plenty loud for audio. Much better than my S8. My speaker phone works well, unlike with my S8. It's nice to see it's actually manufactured in S. Korea instead of China(Samsung. @@@@@@@ It seem really solid and I would recommend it to anyone. The cameras are really nice and definitely seem like an upgrade to my S8. Prefer the pics to the S9 as well. The wide angle camera is really useful. It looks more natural than the one offered on the S10. Selfie cam is decent. Comparable or better than my S8 and the S9. It has some little features that I appreciate: parking finder - noting where you parked your car, optimized charging to protect the life of your battery will charge slower if you charge mostly overnight like me. Battery life on 1080p/FHD is really good. I can get as much as 7-8 hrs of SOT consistently. Not something I normally do, but I like to really test my phones before the return window closes. My S8 and S9 only got to 4-6 hrs SOT with similar usage. Today I was on my phone much more than usual and got 6 hrs SOT (screen on time) at 50% battery left over wifi. I was on my phone off and on since 8:30 am and that was at 3:45pm. The 2 year LG G8 warranty is a selling point. You have to register for the second year after purchase. They limit the size of the pictures you can upload, so I screenshoted a couple to give you an idea. I love my LG G8.
