LG K8 (2018) is LG’s affordable entry-level smartphone so far this year. Unlike the LG G7 ThinQ, this smartphone is very modest and very much on the low side with respect to pricing. In other words, it is budget specific.

Without further ado, I’ll like us to read on to get to know more information about this device.

LG K8 (2018) Quick Review of Features

LG K8 (2018) got constructed in plastic material, further cementing its entry-level status. However, it comes equipped with a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 to serve protection for its screen, something some flagship devices don’t have. Ironical, right? Stepping further, it’s a light weighted device with 152g weight. At the frontal region, the IPS LCD display is sized at 5.0 inches. The display has an HD resolution of 720 X 1280 pixels and 294PPI pixel density.

Images production duties at the back are placed as the responsibility of the 8MP shooter. The camera is supported by a LED flash that adds brightness in low light conditions. In the selfie camera region, a 5MP sensor is in place to manage the delivery of selfies. Memory on the smartphone is very much average; the 2GB RAM handles multitasking and seamless running of apps while the 16GB internal memory ensures files to a reasonable extent can be stored on the device. A memory card slot is available to increase the storage space for files to a meagre 32GB.
