Seamless Design

All-Round Smoothness

Crafted with an uninterrupted glass front and back, the phone speaker is no longer needed and has been completely removed, while the camera array on the rear has no bump. A smoother, streamlined and more comfortable grip.


Z Camera

Accuracy in 3 Dimensions

Not just for taking photos. The Z Camera uses infrared lights and ToF sensor to measure what's in front. The revolutionary technology brings stronger biometric security, enables a touch-free phone interface, and adds extraordinary depth and resolution to selfies.

*ToF (Time of Flight) sensor accurately maps 3D space by calculating the light response time to recognize shapes and their distance from the sensor.


Air Motion

Discover a new way to interact with your screen that frees up your hand. Hands dirty, or wet? With just a wave of your hand, now answer calls, snooze alarms and even increase volume without touching your phone. The future is here, and it's hands-free.


Crystal Sound OLED with Boombox Speaker

Booming Stereo Sound

Sound straight from your screen. Audio gets a boost in clarity with Crystal Sound OLED, which eliminates an external receiver hole for a clean and minimal design. The Boombox Speaker pumps out room-filling audio with astonishing bass whenever you lay down your phone. Full-range sound that’s ideal for music, movies and more.


Hand ID

Security Is In Your Hands

A 3D sensor scans your unique circulatory hand pattern to unlock your phone. This offers unprecedented security that builds upon standard authentication methods that go beyond fingerprints, face recognition or passwords. Simply unlock with a quick scan of your palm. It’s a level of confidence and convenience that no other phone can match.


Face Unlock

Your Face Unlocks It All

Got your hands full? Use your face to unlock your phone! Advanced 3D sensors detect your facial features for greater security and ease. Even on bright and sunny days, facial authentication is quick and accurate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very thoughtful phone ! Wow at first I didn't really see why the name was G8 thinq but wow now I see ! This phone is soo practical because you can do many things at once with this phone ! If you own a business or you are someone that is busy with stuff this phone do the job and is extremely helpful ! The person who created that phone was so thoughtful !!!!!! It's more than just a phone it's an iPad , a computer , a Canon camera , a music recorder lol all at once ! Good job team LG I had an iPhone earlier but I change it for this ! The greater thing is that they ask you for every company that is trying to look to your phone for example when there's is Facebook adds or wtv adds the phone ask you permission first before than can look at your stuff which some phone don't have this options ! All applause for you guys ! Yup good work

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Text Messages Not Working! I receieved this Lgg8x ThinQ as a gift about 2 weeks ago. The first day i had the phone it worked perfectly. After that i cannot receieve or send out texts unless i turn my phone off and on. I have to do this daily. The phone works great so i thought the problem may come from the SIM card, so i went out and got me a new one. My texts came in for a out a few hours and then the problem was back. Besides the texting issues the phone is great and very convenient.. But however, my text that dont send are pretty annoying. Can anyone assist me on how to fix this problem? Please & Thank you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The New G8THINQ is the New Flagship I came from the V series of LG devices. The flagship line in the rest of the world. Unfortunately the V30 was the last of that series coming to Canada. So when it came time to upgrade my phone I hesitated at first until I read the specs on the G8THINQ. To be honest I was blown away by the resemblance and improvement in spec sheet data. More RAM, more internal storage, a current processor, a great OLED display, amazing boombox technology through the OLED crystal sound and all along the same price as my V30 (which my girlfriend now uses). Also included is the legendary LG obsession with audio quality and the Quad DAC tuned by Meridian of the UK with new DTS-X 3D boombox technology. Other great and really innovative features like 3D TOF sensor facial recognition and palm vein reading with air motion gesture control is tops. I love the sleek look of the entirely smooth front OLED display (Gorilla Glass 5) and the dual lens camera on the back is flush with the rear glass (which I should mention is Gorilla Glass 6) with the only protrusion being a super small circle for the fingerprint scanner. This phone is probably close to as much as the consumer needs and wants in a mobile device and will no doubt sell well up here in Canada. Especially considering its similarities to the V40 and even V50 in Korea. I gave it 4 stars only because the only colour available in Canada is black (which under certain lighting definitely has a dark and deep blueish hue that's actually really attractive. The facial recognition unlock works at light speed and the palm reader and air motion are just as fast. Very impressed by the entire package considering the cost of competing phones on the flagship level. This one's a winner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best phone yet. I really like the world of Android and the variety of phones it has to offer and so far my LG G8 Is the best phone I've ever used. Having a Pixel 2 XL as my main phone for the past 2 years has made me realize a few things, pure Android is a bit plain and boring, l need a 3.5mm headphone jack, I appreciate having expandable storage. LG's formula for these phones is spot on, from the quad DAC and awesome face unlock plus well positoned finger print sensor to the great screen and great battery life, there is nothing to dislike about this phone. Thanks LG for making such a complete phone and I wish you much success.
