6.1" OLED Fullvision™ Display
Stunning Picture Minimalist Design
The LG G8 ThinQ™ is crafted with smooth, contoured glass for a gorgeous, uncompromising streamlined design.

Crystal Sound OLED
The Speaker Screen
You’ve never experienced sound like this from a phone before, because the entire screen is the speaker. The display speaker directs sound toward you for a rich, immersive sound experience with a boost of clarity. And because the sound comes from the screen, the traditional call receiver is not needed. Now, hear calls easily & comfortably.
Your Hand is Your Password

Great features!Very fancy phone for me, I’m 70 and am ‘learning’. Do love some of the add ons and features. Once shown where and what to do there the set up seemed easy enough. Good bells and whistles. Much better phone than my old and smaller Samsung.

Easy conversion and usage.I found it was quite easy to learn the features on the LG 8 since it was also an android such as my old Samsung. However, one feature that is a bit problematical. When moving over my contacts, I found a # of contacts "missing". I added those, saved them, etc. only to find they still were not in my contact list. Verizon rep. explained why....seems on this LG model, if you have two names with the SAME cell ph.#, to apparently save space, only one name and one # can be included in the contact list. Since my daugther has a her given name and stage name (as an example), I can only have one listing. Same with our dr., I prefer to have the ph.# under his full name and also just "Dr. Bill"..... This is so someone using my phone should I become incapacitated, will know where to look for either my daughter's #; her stage name #; likewise with our family dr. Just two examples. If you have a recommended solution, I would really appreciate a response.
