LG K8 with 4G VoLTE and 13MP Camera Launched in India| Features| Specifications| Reviews| My Opinion

Life's Good, that's clean motto of LG, but they failed to impress in the field of smartphones from about last 5-6 years. I hardly remember any smartphone from LG, that is still running in the markets. What so ever, we as users, should always give chances to these brands as they keep coming with latest ideas and this time its LG K8. So, let's directly move on to LG K8's features and specifiations:


LG K8 Price:

After the LG Q6, the company has decided to launch yet another smartphone in India - the LG K8 (2017). The mid-ranger has been quietly listed on its online store, and is priced at Rs. 11,000. While there has been no official announcement from LG, the website mentions that the smartphone is available in offline stores. Separately, an established Mumbai retailer claims the smartphone is already retailing offline at a price of Rs. 9,999.


LG K8 Design and Display:

  • The LG K8 (2017) is the successor of the LG K8 launched last year in March.
  • This year's variant sees a better camera, fingerprint scanning support, 4G VoLTE support, and a different design aesthetic as well. The LG K8 (2017) sports a fingerprint scanner at the back below the camera sensor. 
  • The LG logo sits at the front and the back, while the speaker is seen at the rear end as well.
  • The front panel has sufficient bezels with on screen navigation buttons. There is a 3.5mm audio jack on top, and the volume keys sit on the left edge.


LG K8 Full Phone Specifications:

  • The LG K8 (2017) runs on the dated Android Marshmallow, and supports dual-SIM (Nano +Nano) slots.
  • It features a 5-inch HD (720x1280 pixels) display and is powered by the 1.25GHz quad-core processor paired with 2GB of RAM.
  • Internal storage is at 16GB with the option to expand further using a microSD card (up to 200GB).
  • The LG K8 (2017) offers a 13-megapixel rear sensor with autofocus, f/2.2 aperture, and flash support.
  • At the front, there is a 5-megapixel sensor for selfies and video chats. The smartphone packs a 2500mAh battery.
  • Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.1, Wi-Fi Direct, and AGPS.
  • Sensors on board include proximity and accelerometer.
  • The smartphone has been made available in Gold and Blue colour variants.


My Opinion:

  • According to me, the features aren't enough glamourous that  asks you Rs.9999 ($120) for this type of smartphone.
  • You only get 2GB of RAM in this much amount which is way less.
  • So, I'm strongly recommending this smartphone at all. Buy this at your own risk.
