The LG K8 is kitted-out with a fairly comprehensive range of specs and hardware for its price point. The MediaTek CPU is decent, though, while it wonít give anyway near the same level of performance as Qualcommís flagship Snapdragon setup, it is perfect for users that only need a more casual user experience.
If youíre the type that does some browsing, a bit of Facebook and Twitter and the odd bit of gaming, the LG K8 will be perfectly suited to your needs. Itís not flagship-powerful, but then itís about a fifth of the price of a new flagship. In this respect, youíre still getting a lot of bang for your book.
And thatís the most important thing about these phones: value for money, bang for your buck, and the ability to do more for less.
LG K8 Review: Battery
Battery life is decent as well; youíll get a solid dayís worth of use from the LG K8 providing you donít push it too hard with things like graphically-intensive gaming, video calling and lots of photography.
In my tests, the LG K8 consistently had juice left in the tank when it came time to retire to bed. Itís not the best in its class, but it is by no means the worst Ė again, I donít really have any complaints in this regard.
For a budget phone, the battery performance was perfectly on the level.
LG K8 Review: Verdict
I love the way the LG K8 looks. I think it is one of the best looking budget Android phones on the market right now.
The camera is decent and performance, providing youíre not expecting Galaxy S7-levels of grunt, is more than adequate for normal usage.
The software is useful, well executed and adds in lots of utility. If youíre in the market for a very cheap and very capable Android phone that also looks rather snazzy the LG K8 should high on your watch list.
