A message from LG:
*The LG G8 used to develop this video was a pre-production model. Check with your local retailer for final product availability.*

LG’s flagship smartphone’s are often unfairly overlooked. This year’s G8 uses a vibrating screen as a speaker, and lets you unlock the device by reading your palm! But are these gimmicks good or garbage?

    I tell all the viewers to go check the LG G8 out yourself. Then make a final judgement.. I got the G8 I love it.. I think they a doing a "gimmicking bashing review" 😂

    I think it's No dealbraker because you can use the Headphonejack instead of the Speakers and it's usefull for calls

    These guys should really play and test it BEFORE they show it off. This makes it look so bad. The air motion didn't work cuz you're supposed to pretend like you're grabbing an air knob. Gimmicky yes but other than that it's just an extra feature to use with the new added Z camera.
    Horrible video that makes the phone look so bad…

    I have always liked lg skin, but I've been mostly using lg since the g2 so
    I like htc skin more, but lg skin isn't bad. Samsung's is the worst by far

    Glad to see LG utilize old Kinect hardware in their phones. Great use of old tech. It even works as well as the Kinect!

    I mean the LG G6 didn't have a camera bump either it was smooth and flushed in so I don't know what the big deal over the G8 not having a camera bump is about.

    Even tho I don't like lg (lol while my primary phone is lg v20 lg products just don't age well) I like how they don't have a camera hump at all I wish they would've done that on the Galaxy S10 series

    LG G Series: Great hardware under the shadow of terrible, confusing, misleading, non-working, poor written, underdeveloped LG software. It's been like that for at least 4 years. Just move on, Samsung got you covered.
