Day 18 with my LG G8, still waiting on all this awfully bland phone problems to hit my experience any day now, no actual ETA in sight

I used mine for about 4 days and switched back to my Xiaomi Mi Max 3. I miss the phablet size and I was having a lot of difficulty with the fingerprint unlocking being very slow and the phone stuttering way too much for the RAM it has.

I actually just got a G8 and the battery life is pretty good. Not as good as the v40 though.

I have one (fully unlocked, not with Alexa built-in) and I love it. Nice to have the Quad-DAC and headphone jack, and the OLED display is nice. Remember to go into the settings and change the screen resolution. If you prefer cranking it up to 2K, you’ll have to do it manually cause the phone is set to 1080p by default. It has some nice features like HDR (works in some apps and doesn’t in others), and True View, which is similar to True Tone on the iPhone; it adjusts white balance depending on ambient lighting. The screen gets very bright outdoors.

I just got one on Prime day. I haven't activated it yet (super lazy) but it is lovely just playing around with the camera and everything that doesn't require activation. The sound is great. I'm upgrading from an lg g6. It certainly feels like an upgrade.
