[Flipkart] LG G8X Impressions and FAQ

by birtanpublished on October 26, 2020

The only thing i knew about the lg g8x before the flipkart sale was that it was lg's flagship phone from last year with an interesting foldable implementation but not something that i thought would be successful i was right i also thought that i would never be interested in this device let alone buying one i was wrong i'm rohan from techytechtech and i just got my lg g8x delivered let's talk about it let's do first impressions as soon as you hold the lg g8x in your hand

You instantly realize it is not meant to be priced solo it feels better in the hand than more expensive phones like the oneplus mod in fact there are a lot of tiny things in this device that lg has done better than most of the competition for starters i love the fact that the camera module is flush with the rest of the back it is such a relief in a world of giant camera bumps it ends up looking really elegant and classy the glossy back glass combined with the shiny aluminum frame

Looks really sophisticated even if you ignore the price point it would be a shame to compare the overall fit and finish of the lg gatex hardware to other sub rupees 20000 phones because build quality wise this phone is right up there with the more expensive flagship heavyweights talking of flagships i have an activity for you imagine the typical set of specs for a 2019 flagship phone snapdragon 855 processor 6 gb of ram 128 gb of storage an oled display gorilla glass on the front and the back

Well all these are the specs of the lg g8x to put things into your perspective the lg g8x is having the same processor as the still very powerful and very capable oneplus 7 pro now seriously i know this is a very hard to get deal but this kind of specifications at this price point is just insane the hardware on this thing is incredible the audio quality alone on this phone through both the headphone jack

And the stereo speakers is insanely better than the competition let's talk about the major downside of this phone quickly because there's only one the software experience this is my first lg phone in a long long time and honestly i'm not liking it lg's android skin reminds me of samsung's touchwiz but even worse the animations are all slow and feel stretched out there are a lot of weird sound effects for different actions

And even the overall look and feel of the ui is very weirdly clunky the list just goes on and on and on i am not a fan of the software experience of this phone yet granted i have just started using this phone so maybe the software experience will eventually grow on me and if it does i will definitely let you know but for now the software experience of this phone alone is the only complaint i have with the lg g8x also i haven't gotten around to using the attachable display much

But from what i can tell it is like attaching an external monitor to your laptop the only true use case in my scenario that i can imagine right now is using one display as a full size gaming controller while the other one obviously runs the game i will let you know once i use it more okay now on to the faqs the first one is what came in the box it was everything that you would expect other than a power adapter yes lg overtook apple here and shipped the g8x

Without a charger you get a microfiber cloth usb type-a to type-c cable earphones a case in the main box and then we have the extra display and a charging magnet thing in a separate box the second question is is it a refurbished phone i genuinely don't think so i think lg has also officially confirmed that it is a brand new device and from the condition that my phone came in i would bet that this is a brand new device it's basically scratchless

And spotless the next question is is this deal some kind of a scam or should i be worried before buying this phone well i don't think so firstly flipkart and lg they both have a reputation of being trustworthy but what's more to it is that the g8x was not a successful phone and so what i think is that lg had a lot of stock left over and they tied up with flipkart to get a nice little promotion going for both of them and sell all of that leftover stock and

It worked beautifully lg has claimed that they sold around 175 000 units and everyone is talking about lg smartphone again so i think it worked out pretty well for both of them and of course the consumers the next question is are these european units i think they are i also think that this is one of the reasons why the lg g8x does not have a charging adapter in the box lg removed the european adapter from the

Box and did not replace it with an indian adapter since they wanted to minimize costs the model number of the lg gatex sold in this big billion days sale is the same as the lg v50s sold in some other regions so who knows what the actual real connection is also a bit about the sale experience since many people are claiming that flipkart did a fraud or many other stories so i just wanted to share my own experience it actually went really smoothly i was at the lg gatex product page on flipkart

Since 11 58 pm 2 minutes before the sale started and kept on refreshing every 10 seconds it appeared on sale exactly at 12 midnight and i instantly added it to my cart and checked out in around 10 seconds the fact that my address and payment information was already saved helped a lot i do understand that i was really lucky in this some people could not order the phone at all and some people managed to order the phone but flipkart canceled the orders later

Better luck next time i guess also if you're wondering where all the units of the lg g8x went do what i did open olx and search for the lg g8x you will find a lot of people who bought the phone and are reselling it now for profit most of these sellers from olx buy multiple units and a large chunk of their sale devices go to them that's basically the story of every flash sale until then i hope this video helped you out and if it did

Please like share and subscribe if you have any other queries about the lg g8x or about the sale in general leave them in the comment section below and i will definitely reply to you this has been rohan from tech react tech and i will see you in the next video bye
