    It's the master of phones that can drive high impedance headphones.
    Audiophiles like this phone.

    How about expandable memory and a fucking headphone jack (apple) I like the iPhones and almost took the jump but the no headphone thing is an absolute dealbreaker.

    I wish the flagship Samsung’s put in high quality dacs for their SD variants, (exynos better but still not great) so that I would no longer need to watch these LG review..only reason to consider g8 is audio. Which is valid, phones aren’t just our cameras now, they are our walkmans, discmans, MP3 players, iPods. For me music is life, I want the best if I’m dropping 1000 on a phone, sadly this is the last area where no phone really ‘has it all’

    I was looking to compare between LG G8x Thinq and S10/S10e, but if its so skewed...

    You didnt seem to care about making this video at all, kinda like pointing out all the flaws and ending it asap

    LG should just throw away the stupid air gesture and put a zoom lens on it. the G8 design is good enough. and please put back 3.5mm jack

    So being the boss of the DAC is being a "master of none". So done with you, MKBD.

    Its as if everyone in the comments didn't watch the video . . .
    If you want this phone for the quad dac get it. if you weren't sure buy the s10e . . . its the same thing - but cheaper.
    there are some children in the comments lol.

    I used to like LG phones I had the the G2 and G4 and loved it. Then I decided to upgrade to the v30 and it was one of the worst Android experiences I've ever had. The skin was slow, my headphone jack and charger port broke after just a few months and then LG pushed a software update out the made Bluetooth unusable for months. I will gladly never go back to a LG phone. The software experience from a pixel or a one plus are miles ahead. LG has a lot of catching up to do. Don't blame MkbHD for LGs issues

    Haven't used an LG phone since 2015. My first phone from LG was their G3. Worst phone I ever used. Couldn't hold a charge to save its life. Got so hot that it was actually uncomfortable to hold and would regular restart at the most random times. That pretty much soured my view of LG.

    I can’t believe how disappointed I feel in MKB In this video, like really I always count on his reviews to be honest and accurate. His whole attitude towards The G8 and how he presents it just make me feel bad for him because I know he’s better than this.

    LG is unbeatable for the price. I know there is Xiaomi with it's K20 pro and stuff but still...Lg has character, Lg stands out with it's quad dack and other features.

    Master of None? Except audio quality (32-bit DAC), manual photo modes, manual video modes, night view, 3D facial recognition for Android, fingerprint reader and optimal placement, still retaining headphone jack and SD card, oh and price king!
    But other than these, just standard flagship meh...

    In my opinion the lg g8 is the better trade over the note 10, and all the tech youtubeers always have problems with the air motion, but every time I use it it works 100% of the time along with the hand id, and the speaker is still good it's better than the v35 and the v40 so it's an improvement to me, and I think lg does the camera better.

    fuck you marques

  • Prasanth Saradammausha

    Used to like Marques' reviews, but always wondered why he is always against LG. With this video, totally disappointed to realize Marques, u are biased. People look up to reviewers for making decisions and being biased will never help your followers. You do not have to tease G8 for its gimmicks, atleast LG tried. This review completely is a disrespect when it says G8 is master of none, when it is clearly known that no other mobile phones till date has the QADac and superior audio quality this phone provides. The camera manual mode LG stared to offer even before LG G4 is astonishing and it has only improved since then. All other companies came up with manual modes only recently. Same is the case with wide angle camera. If Samsung and One Plus pays more, it is perfect to advertise for them and not to appreciate LG, but please atleast do not criticize. The tagline for this video 'harsh but true' would have made sense if the review was authentic and unbiased. You dont need to tarnish a great phone in order to promote some other brand mate. Would love to see the old Marques with his genuine reviews.

    master of none? um, how about the master of the man sized phone. and i'm not talking about a social media man or whatever, just a random regular guy, ones that don't have twitter, snapchat, or instagram. i'm sick and tired of these phones that i need a god damn purse to carry. it's stupid.

    not to mention the headphone jack. that people are stupidly removing for no good reason. not only that, it is by far and away the best wired sound quality, if ya got headphones to take advantage.

    i don't like the notch, as with all phones. and i really really want an on screen scanner. i just won't buy a huge phone, really wish one+ would make a normal sized phone, and s10 doesn't keep getting bigger.

    Here in Italy we have the LG G8s (3 cameras). I can't wait more my little beast. About prices? Shit this is the phone that get the best prices on a few months. I just paid 460 fucking euros. Samsung and Apple boys kiss my Johnny.
    Nothing special on this phone?
    Please watch all the TheXvid comparisons are showing the contrary.
    I unmounted lot of iMacs and Macbooks always found LG displays there. The LG C8 TV is one of a kind. The masterpiece Apple XDR display is made in collaboration with LG Display (as their collaborating from many years). I had the Nexus 4, LG G2, G4, G6 and V30+ always great devices with superb displays. No gimmicks, deep and natural colours from the display to camera. I'm a Graphic Designer and Photographer and every time I changed phones always searched the best photo/display devices. Three years ago I did an exhibition with 90% of the photos took on LG G4 (printed at 40*30cm) and people didn't believe the photos were took with a smartphone. I mean the guys know their business about image quality, who don't accept it should just shut up.
