Why do they keep on complaining when in fact this is a great phone. He keep on saying "its fine" as if he's reviewing an iphone 6 😂 Stop making reviews on LGs Smartphones just stick on your Samsung

Damn, everyone is going crazy in the comments. I feel like the Lg g8 is a great device. It does check a lot of boxes but being that it is has a quad DAC and maintains a headphone jack, I'd have to say it appeals mostly to audiophiles. It's just all the commercialism of Samsung as well as Apple out shines it. It gives everyone the false perception that if you don't have an iPhone or Samsung then your phone is considered low tier in the smartphone space. If there is one thing I learned from Lg it is that they like to appeal to specific crowds. They offer certain specific features but that does not mean the rest of the phone lacks because of this.

Tuco I can respect different opinions though Text the tech community is incredibly toxic to be honest It’s because it’s so diverse It’s a blessing and a curse at the same time

Tuco The hand I do think it’s actually pretty cool but I don’t find using it on the phone I think it would be in incredibly handy (I actually didn’t mean that pun but I’m keeping it) on a TV, a laptop/PC, or a smart watch (because Smart watches currently have no biometrics at the moment)

man, this video is crawling with butthole swollen LG fanboys. most of you are naming stuff that "stands out". they don't. in the era of Bluetooth, having audio enhancements that you will only experience if you plug some headphones in isn't going to make your product more compelling than what the competition offers, especially when(as demonstrated in this video) the audio speaker quality is complete rubbish. hand ID/air gestures, like 5G, is a good idea that will work great in the future, but right now, it sucks. maybe it will be better on the G9 or G10. more secure face ID. apple has been had that and other more popular android devices have in-screen scanners and don't need or care about face unlock. and spare me the "but, they can be fooled" line. so can face ID. any of these scanner security measures can be spoofed. whine all you want but the video is spot on. the G8 is a solid device all around that an LG enthusiast will not be disappointed in owning, but offers nothing to draw people from other brands to their product. that's not biased, or dishonest, it's just facts.

LG was the first who introduced Quad DAC, the first to introduce ultra wide angle lens .. and the fact that they have retained 3.5mm headjack and still manage to slap an IP68 RATING. You must be one biased reviewer...

LG stands out the last years for the Quad DAC, i don't get it why this guy is making a review and don't even mention that, and the manual mode of their cameras are just unbeatable, even that i know that are better cameras on the market i can still make it more with this manual mode. The LG phones are still miles ahead of competition for audiophiles. You lost this one bro.

Most of the review nowadays for phone are. Super thin bezzel. No notch. High end spec. Good audio, good camera , big battery and cheap. Come on guys we know this is never gonna happend. Even if they put it "cheap" or "worth it" they still gonna earn alot . But as for others most of us just pay for the brand which is kinda sad.

Calling the headphone jack on the s10e comparable to the LG G8 is laughable. The conclusion should be, "if you're thinking about buying the LG G8, then buy it, there's no reason not to, and if you like headphone quality, there's zero competition." If you're looking at an LG you probably have some reason why you aren't looking at the market leader of Samsung, so just telling people interested in this phone to get an s10e is a bozo move.

First time I saw this video I didn't really think about it... but now after some pointing out how biased it really was... WOW... I can't get it why. It's not about "I think S10e is better"... It's really like ADV about Samsung... Don't buy LG to make them drop price to loose early profit. It feels almost like it's personal - as I didn't see it in any video before.

Wow! Thanks making my decision easier for unsubscribing a lot of the so called “popular” reviewers and supporting some of the new guys, I’m into reviews of products not hit jobs. There are many examples in this “review” I can point to, but the best/worst is that LG has been sporting a wide angle camera for a long time and now many other OEM’s are now following, and instead of giving credit, it’s something easily copied?.... Really?

The difference between this video and your s10e video is crazy. All of the s10e video had a positive overtone whereas the whole tone of this review is negative. I use both Samsung and LG and from my perspective you made your reviews biased and glossed over a lot of the good points of the LG phone.

Didn't he just gave great credit to the cameras? Why y'all keep on screaming about the DAC and the headphone jack? The DAC is fine, only great when you have the right headphones!! Sigh.

Mkbhd is right. No one gonna buy this phone if you want to pay $600-$700 get the oneplus or $800-$900 get the iPhone or Galaxy s10. They all are better phone than LG G8. If you happy to pay $650 - $800 for G8 because you don't know about tech or you are stupid.
Patrick King

Oh Marques, Marques....::rollz eyez:: I personally have always enjoyed my LG phones and I'm still using some very old ones. The biggest reason to get this phone is because in a few months the price will plummet making their phone an absolute steal all the while these other brands phones will be trying to get full retail. Poor LG, can't get away with charging high prices like the others (and they do price things stupidly at launch) but they are fantastic devices. But I doubt you've had to actually pay for your devices in years so if they are all free then that probably changes the dynamic a bit. I can't really take what you and the "crispy team" say seriously anymore, and I never really viewed you guys videos as real reviews but rather pretty little commercials or bash videos and always take them with a grain of salt.

so, LG has the best haptic feedback in the business, the best video manual control in the business, the best audio recording in the business, the best build quality in the Android world with military grade, two years warranty (which is one of the longest), the 5th best camera quality ( after google, apple, Huawei and Samsung), a face unlock that's biometric and better than 99% of the phones out there, one of the best speakers, the best 3.5 mm headphone jack quality with no competition whatsoever, you get a better call quality in noisy environments than any other phone with bone conduction and the best noise canceling also in phone calls and the palm shit that everyone's bitching about, the phone doesn't force you to use it ... and it's baried in the settings and it's actually useful if you're in a shower or cooking now tell me how this phone is the master of none you shitty person

It's sad. I LOVE the way LG does things, they are always the ones that comes out with innovations that got popular (rear mounted buttons, QHD display, UWA, etc). However, their implementation and marketing is seriously lacking which gave opportunity for other companies to take their idea and does it better. Next year, Samsung will have hand ID.

But some people just refuse to see it.

I think that the new Samung S10 phones are beautiful, but they also have a big slab of glass.. Some people still whining about LG's bootloop in 2019 are really pathetic. The Note 7 had an bad battery and could explode, Apple running their Phones slower, so you buy a new one.... Like Juan Bagnell said, move on people!
