    Just checked tmobile and this is now around $600 on their website. Seems like a better deal than the s10e at this point no? And I know a lot of audiophiles who would buy this phone over pretty much anything on the market simply for that quad dac.

    This video is too biased, its an amazing phone overall
    Secure 3D facial recognition + capacitive Fingerprint sensor > in display fingerprint sensors
    Good Speakers although not as good as samsung's and apple, still better than most and dont forget the Quad Dac it has
    wireless charging, IP rating, Fast charging, QHD amoled display,Great built quality, up to date specs, it has Great cameras although reviewers are not talking about it
    Dont forget apple stuck with the same design for 4 years, from iPhone 6 to 8 and still they said it looked good
    Tech reviewers, dont make LG look bad, they make great phones

    You have sold out. Sad to see. You used to actually put some effort into reviews.
    Can't possibly upset the Samsung army.
    Funny thing is, other than the display the s10 doesn't stand out at all

    What a biased first class A hole, what about the pro camera mode, proper night mode, apple like 3d face unlock, a finger print scaner that it actualy works all of the time, cheaper than the s10e, mil 810 g std durability & ip 68, hifi quad dac, Dts 3d suround sound etc etc

    LG Phones, what comes to me: Great Quality Product #1 and Great Sound #2. No need to diss a product that hashly...sounds like only if its $1000.00 you are worth the time.

    First time I saw this video I didn't really think about it... but now after some pointing out how biased it really was... WOW... I can't get it why. It's not about "I think S10e is better"... It's really like ADV about Samsung... Don't buy LG to make them drop price to loose early profit. It feels almost like it's personal - as I didn't see it in any video before.

    This video is good for Samsung s10 owners as it basically was made to make them feel good about there purchase and fails miserably to show the G8 is a danm good competitor.

    Wow! Thanks making my decision easier for unsubscribing a lot of the so called “popular” reviewers and supporting some of the new guys, I’m into reviews of products not hit jobs.
    There are many examples in this “review” I can point to, but the best/worst is that LG has been sporting a wide angle camera for a long time and now many other OEM’s are now following, and instead of giving credit, it’s something easily copied?.... Really?

    The difference between this video and your s10e video is crazy.
    All of the s10e video had a positive overtone whereas the whole tone of this review is negative.
    I use both Samsung and LG and from my perspective you made your reviews biased and glossed over a lot of the good points of the LG phone.

    Mkbhd is right. No one gonna buy this phone if you want to pay $600-$700 get the oneplus or $800-$900 get the iPhone or Galaxy s10. They all are better phone than LG G8.
    If you happy to pay $650 - $800 for G8 because you don't know about tech or you are stupid.

  • Patrick King
    Patrick King 2 days ago +1

    Oh Marques, Marques....::rollz eyez:: I personally have always enjoyed my LG phones and I'm still using some very old ones. The biggest reason to get this phone is because in a few months the price will plummet making their phone an absolute steal all the while these other brands phones will be trying to get full retail. Poor LG, can't get away with charging high prices like the others (and they do price things stupidly at launch) but they are fantastic devices. But I doubt you've had to actually pay for your devices in years so if they are all free then that probably changes the dynamic a bit.
    I can't really take what you and the "crispy team" say seriously anymore, and I never really viewed you guys videos as real reviews but rather pretty little commercials or bash videos and always take them with a grain of salt.

  • faster Jonny
    faster Jonny 2 days ago +1

    so, LG has the best haptic feedback in the business, the best video manual control in the business, the best audio recording in the business, the best build quality in the Android world with military grade, two years warranty (which is one of the longest), the 5th best camera quality ( after google, apple, Huawei and Samsung), a face unlock that's biometric and better than 99% of the phones out there, one of the best speakers, the best 3.5 mm headphone jack quality with no competition whatsoever, you get a better call quality in noisy environments than any other phone with bone conduction and the best noise canceling also in phone calls
    and the palm shit that everyone's bitching about, the phone doesn't force you to use it ... and it's baried in the settings and it's actually useful if you're in a shower or cooking
    now tell me how this phone is the master of none you shitty person

    It's sad. I LOVE the way LG does things, they are always the ones that comes out with innovations that got popular (rear mounted buttons, QHD display, UWA, etc). However, their implementation and marketing is seriously lacking which gave opportunity for other companies to take their idea and does it better.

    Next year, Samsung will have hand ID.

    I think that the new Samung S10 phones are beautiful, but they also have a big slab of glass.. Some people still whining about LG's bootloop in 2019 are really pathetic. The Note 7 had an bad battery and could explode, Apple running their Phones slower, so you buy a new one.... Like Juan Bagnell said, move on people!

    This is the NUMBER ONE reason why I can't get anything but LG phones, and thank God they make the most premium ones. And the reason is durability! Omg can the G series take the beating, Holly FKKK! Then Mil certification truly pays off, Biggly! It's true,.. T's true. Don't ever like cases, and G series is like the Gshock was for watches. Plus I can safely say I'm an audiophile, so duh, natural choice for me, for me, the G series is the dream come true.

    This phone has the most stand out features of all flagships lol. The only military certified for drop resistance, only quad dac, only display speaker, only front tof sensor... So many stand out features, many more than any other major fs lol, you're very biased, the whole review industry is bought by Samsung and Apple bribes. That's how HTC, the most amazing phone makes, got destroyed. By purchased reviews like this.

    So, since he's comparing the G8 to yhe S10e, let's see what the G8 does better than S10e or even S10/S10 Plus... 1) A better wide angle camera, because it has less lens distortion (that's why it's not as wide as the S10's camera witch suffers from lens distortion) and a wider F1.9 (S10 has a F2.2 witch is not even close to the G8's camera), 2) better audio, 3) better battery life (sometimes better than the S10's battery life),4) better facial recognition despite having a smaller notch than Xs/Xs Max and Mate 20 Pro witch all have same level of security, 5) an acceptable night mode, 6) a sharper higher quality display (Qhd+ on G8 and FHD+ on S10e), 7) manual video and photo controls,8) no camera bump at all, 9) under-display speaker... And you can actually find an LG G8 for a cheaper price than the S10e. This is not how a review is done, you're basically attacking LG and pointing out the negative things in their smartphone and not talking about all of the better things that it does that i mentioned before.

    If you're even thinking of buying this phone, don't watch this shit review. This has to be by far one the dumbest videos I've ever watched. He says master of none yet forgets the QuadDAC ? I mean for an audiophile this is your go to phone. Samsung claims it's phones are professional grade in terms of camera yet it doesn't even compare in terms of manual controls like the LG. He then has the audacity to say the features are gimmicky however he fails to realise the Z camera provides a level of security the S10 can't, the G8 provides almost iPhone like facial unlock. If you want a real review deffo check out jaunbagnell, this guy literally makes shit for the views and is so biased. If it's a Google phone or one plus he will literally praise it till the end. The only real tech TheXvidrs now who aren't filling their videos with bullshit sponsors and provides honest reviews are jaunbagnell, flossycarter and dave2D. Everyone is more focused on make crispy videos with no actual substance.
