    this phone is really ugly. My cousin has one and it does not seem worth it at all. The g6 looks way better even though its 2 years old. Just my opinion but damn the phone is ugly

    DO NOT BUY LG...AWFUL CUSTOMER SERVICE AND FAULTY HARDWARE. I have had 2 LG phones which cameras stopped working and one where the motherboard died all within 6 months to 1 year of purchasing...Fool me once shame on you fool me three times and I don't know what that means. I just want yall to know...

    ALSO LG Customer service is THE WORST. Over the last several days I have spoken with various call center representatives about a hardware malfunction on my LG G6. We determined to repair it as no trouble shooting was working however this means I am phoneless for 2 weeks....What?! With my life and job no way. They would not provide a loaner and would not provide a new device. On top of this FLAWED and INCONSIDERATE policy, one of those supervisors hung up on me while expressing my frustrations. I was frustrated but not belligerant, not cursing, not vulgar...I was unable to talk to anyone who can make any decision and instead I was treated, quite frankly, like my problem wasn't their problem which in fact it was entirely. I did not drop or damage my phone, it was being used as intended and it failed...great, it happens, but compensate for it if you bother to have a warranty at all. NO COMPENSATION was provided for my broken device and the inconvenience of your repair policy and NONE was provided for being hung up on. NO ONE should hang up on a customer...and I was told it was all handled internally and I would not be contacted about it... I felt undervalued when fighting for my product which I am now finding was way over valued. Life is not good LG, neither is your customer service and customer service policies. I would expect compensation from any company if treated this way but honestly don't expect it from LG given my experience today. I cannot believe how I was treated and cannot believe your company policies do not allow us to meet each other half way on a problem that is YOUR companies FAULT.

    External storage, with a 3.5mm jack, and an IP68 rating.... There aren't that many phones to choose from. Add in the 6gb ram and it's a winner for me.
    I don't care about the sleek exterior because I will always have a case on it.
    This is probably the perfect high end phone for me currently out.

    I came back to this review, since I am considering the G8. After watching it, I realize why I no longer subscribe to this channel. Bias much, Mr. Brownlee? I am sure the G8 is not a perfect phone. I am also sure it is much better than your biased review would indicate.

    We watch your videos for the content, not just the production quality. Rmb how you attracted so many subscribers in the first place. You gave accurate, and relatable reviews of phones. Now it seems that you are more focused on how your videos look, rather than really experiencing a phone and delivering a fair assessment. Will always support you, please read the other comments for constructive feedback.

    Thank you Marques Brownlee for being so harsh on this phone. That helped to push the price down quicker than expected, and now we fans of phones with such above average specs can get it at a price even lower than he predicted it would go, he said buy it if it gets around$650 to $700. Now at T-Mobile for around $615. Camera reviews showing that it does quite well plus it allows more manual controls, something the expensive flagship phones seem to be reducing. So if he were to make an addendum on this video he would have to highly recommend this phone.

      Alternatively, if he had given the LG G8 a less harsh and more favorable review, the price of the phone would not have drop so low so soon.

    I bought this phone for my mom and she has soooo many complaints about it, she says it over heats, it vibrates too much when the volume is high and that she hears buzzing noises when talking on the phone. My question is if it's just that one phone she got or if anyone else has seen this happen.

    This comment section is being a little to harsh. Yes I agree this was not his best review, but he is not wrong. You guys in the comments are not looking at his point of view incorrectly. Some of the things he is saying that is making you mad is just true. Compared to other phones you really aren't getting anything special. I know this video is a few weeks old, and my comment is a little late, but I'm kind of starting to browse for a new phone, so I'm not saying this is a bad phone but it is just not great. I would totally buy it. They have all of the flagship basics, and ok software. So I don't know. Just my opinion. you can hate on it.

    LG has the worst screen in the industry. Light bleeding and image retention are common complaints. If you're out of warranty, then it becomes your burden. LG should take responsibility for the devices they sell and should repair or replace defective units even if it's out of warranty. It might be best to look for a better product.

    If apple was one of the few to pioneer the no-camera-hump look, he wouldn’t shade them with slippery and “it’s a design, it’s a smartphone”.

    At 3:05, thats exactly the same issue i had with my 3month LG G6... Everytime I make a phone call or someone is calling me, there was a buzzing sound. I sent my phone to LG but they can't fix the problem. It took me 1month and 2 weeks for them to decide that they gonna replace my phone. But they gave me a refurbished one. I think that buzzing sound issue with LG hasnt been fix until now.

    I still don't get it. Why in the world would they make it glass all around? What a lame design! I personally like plastics or aluminum, but it doesn't matter much to me. I always put it in a case. Some phones can claim 'indestructable' (none of the LGs are, though), but all manufactures should focus on durability, reliability, longer battery life (at least 2 to 3 days). I have had several LGs, which were all pretty good...until they died. Unfortunately they are unreliable. Chips overheating or faulty software. And their battery life sucks too. Not worth it.

    This is a completely biased review. LG makes great phones. If you want me to describe the phone with some words - i will say
    1. Great Wide Angle Cameras
    2. Hifi Quad Dac and best audio phones
    3. MIL standard - one of the most sturdy phones. Drop both samsung amd lg phones.
    4. One of the best camera software
