  • Just got one last night at T-Mobile, got rid of my Samsung S8+ after two years. T-Mobile gave me $310 for it and I walked away with this phone for about $350. So far so good, only thing I wish is that it used stock android. I wish people (like Samsung) would give up on their terrible software. I was going to get a Motorola or OnePlus 7 but for the money, I think this was a good choice. I too like LG products.

  • LG G6 is still giving an amazing fight to samsung S10.

    dave kahndave kahnPřed 12 dny
    • G6 is a good one. Upgrading to the g7 next week. I was going for the g8 but it really is like a G7 Plus, only differences is a bump in the main specs. Phones are pretty much twins including the display, besides the g7 being Lcd, but 8 dont like Oled anyway. Hopefully the G9 is full screen next year.

  • Can you please please do an MQA Hi-Res audio review. That LG phone doe’s Hi-Res music streaming with it’s purpose built DAC that renders MQA( Master Quality Authenticated). We in the audio enthusiast community need a voice to bring awareness to high resolution audio. The general public is clueless to the best audio streaming technology available now. Bob Stuart of Meridian audio, inventor of DVD/Blu-Ray audio, and the hi-fi community needs your help to make MQA Hi-Res mainstream. I have posted a couple of amature videos trying to show people MQA but my 120 views have gone nowhere.

  • I have the G8 and I have to say over all its ok. Nothing terribly impressive. The HandID is pretty much useless, and I don't even use it. I'm looking more like I should've just gotten the Pixel 3 XL. I'm not unhappy with the G8, I'm just not impressed.

  • I love lg since g2 . and g4 was a mess . and v10 also fail me . But to V30 it was like a dream been used it for 2 years still work like a charm . I'm live in a country ( vietnam) where lg has stop sell and support their phone products. So i have to buy from out source . Was send from another country . which mean if some thing happen to the phone i have brought im done for good . No warranty . No guaranty . But the day i see v30 in my friend hand , i have fall in love again with lg so i take that chance with me . after 2 years still kicking ass and taking name . No issues . no problem . game good as new day . Battery may a little bit low but still get me through a day with my light on screen just 40% light and apps still respond perfectly. Not selfie guys so doesn't care much about camera . So please lg please come back to my country . And if lg member read this just in my opinion. : midrange phone : 6 inch , benzen less. Use snapdragon around 700 serial. Battery 3300. Use warter notch if U have to or just like in the v30 it will perfect. Your flagship use new snap 800 serial 6.3 or 6.4 inch. Battery 3500 or 4000 . keep your unique screen or water drop . Just don't use the big ass for nothing notch on g7 or g8 . You kill what you make lg .put oled on both of them. so please . i care more about the real quality products than price . please lg . Im sorry for long text and my english it not my first language. But this is what is in my heart for lg . Please. From vietnam with love, we miss you pal .

  • Such a blah review, which speaks to the path LG has been on. They've been blah for the past 5 years. It's sad, a company with so much potential settle for mere mediocrity. This is the same company that pioneered the knock knock and wide angle camera which are features that have become standard in many premium phones now. Smh

  • As a Galaxy Note 9 user, I really like having the fingerprint scanner on the back of the phone. I find it a lot easier and faster to just hit it with my index finger, instead of using my thumb to hit either the original fingerprint scanner location or under the front screen.

  • I'm using LG g4 and i think this is the best phone i ever had.. And i always got this little obsession with LG phones coz for me they have great camera, great sound, great price, and unique (no one would thinking about unlock a phone using some of knocking combination, or when others put unlock button on the side of phone, they put it on the back). In my opinion, LG just lack of 2 things.. 1. Customer service/ service center, it's easier to find SC for lg Home Appliances than for lg phone.. 2. No accessories, looking for LG phone accessories would like try to find a water in desert..

  • Hey, first time viewer here. Thanks for showing some of the features. I've never tried Sprint before. My brother-in-law told me that I could get this with no money down. I got approved last week, still gotta wait for another week. It's on back order. I hope this was a good decision. Mine ran about $850.00 @ $15 per month. I'll be paying about the same as I am now for my LG G STYLO from Metro pcs, about $65.00 per month. I imagine I will have alot better coverage area too. The one thing I was really geeked about, is the internal storage. Thanks again, hope this is a good phone. Should be for the price..

  • Hmm...well the problem with fingerprint sensor located on the back is when the phone is sitting on something and gets annoying to raise it every time for unlock, or enter a code to....so Samsung came up with ultrasonic fingerprint which is not bad, but has some issues...and LG came with something better much more innovative and enjoyable in my opinon, but it's still nedds some work to be perfect, or close to...so definitely lacks in design..for a 2019 smartphone...but! to guide people not to buy it, or to say that galaxy s10e it's a better choice...lol...srry man, this doesn't seems like a honest review...
