LG K8 review

 Review: May 2016  

Rating: 2 stars

In a nutshell: We're struggling to find anything about the LG K8 that isn't average. Although it has a 5 inch HD screen, a quadcore processor and an 8 megapixel camera, so does every other phone in the ~150 mid-range - many have better specs than the K8. The phone is let down further by its tacky design, woeful 8GB of memory, and under-sized battery.

I've had no issues in 18 months. Apps open right up and battery life is good.

This phone is the worst I ever purchased. Slow, delayed, opened apps I did not want. Messages were coming through hours after being sent and missed calls when the phone didn't even ring. After five weeks Id had enough and demanded a full refund. Not a reliable phone at all.

I have been with this phone for a few days now, and I love it. I usually use high end phones like the Samsung galaxy s7 edge. I would not say this phone's performance is anything near the s7 edge I used before this, but for the money I payed for this phone. It's really good. I mean it performed well in all my testing. Battery life was super... I can't say it all. But I would have love it memory to be bigger. That's all.

I've had this phone for just under a year & I'm ready to throw it out the window! I've deleted my 'pages manager' & 'paypal' apps (so i can't run my business away from home). I've deleted the built in email app, & the AA app. The only downloaded app I have on it is facebook & i'm going to have to delete that too. What is the use of paying for Data when you can't use it! All The woeful memory is full of built in rubbish & updates. This is one 'smart phone' that needs to go back to school! I'm wishing that i had stayed with apple! If I could give zero stars I would!

This phone is pointless for anything other than making phone calls. The storage is utterly awful. It is full with just two, yes 2 apps. It is impossible to move anything to a memory card. Flippin useless waste of money. 1 star is 1 too much for this lump of dog mess.

My husband has this phone and is not impressed. Poor storage. Had problem with freezing was repaired in april and now same thing happened again. Very disappointed.

Honestly? Save your money. Poor battery performance lousy storage as most if it is taken up by Google apps i neither need or use. Unbranded smartphones better value.
LG usually known for quality and value. This is neither.
