LG G8X Real-World Test (Camera & Battery Test)

by birtanpublished on September 14, 2020

Another day another rivero's test today we're gonna be doing a road test on the LG g8 think think you I don't care got better railroad tests on this channel so I'm gonna try to use this phone as I normally would throughout my entire day we're gonna check on the

Battery every now and then and see how that's doing but also gonna take photos with it and some of its competitors put them up on the screen so you guys can check that out as well one interesting twist about this video though is that

This phone basically most places that you buy it it turns out comes for free with this accessory it is an extra screen and when you put them together it gives you a dual screen phone which I'm sure you've probably seen stories about

Now because of the fact that it comes essentially for free with it and the phone itself is $700 it makes this quite an interesting combo and I'm going to put these together and use the phone with the screen on for the entire day

Before we get started though as always any coffee Coffee check now real quick I want to talk about this phone and in particularly the dual screen part of it

That seems to be what everybody is talking so as I've already showed you it's a case there is a screen that is on the inside that is the same specs actually as the original screen which is nice and then we have this tiny screen

On the outside that is only used for the date the time and notifications essentially now that inside screen can be controlled by a small floating button that's on the screen if you tap on that you can then swap whatever's on one

Screen onto the other and vice versa put it to sleep turn it off etc now the way that it works unlike a folding phone where in my mind is kind of like an ultra wide monitor where everything kind of fits on there at once

This is more like having dual monitors that separate screen acts almost literally as a nother monitor for Android apps don't really spread across them so you basically have to choose to use two apps at once one on one side and

One on the other with the exception of the chrome app which can actually extend it yourself across the two screens even though there's a gap in the middle and then LG's own gallery app can actually be used in an extended view but it's

Only those two apps right now with more coming soon quote-unquote you can also go into settings and whenever you open this screen automatically have it launch one app in particular for me I've been using that kind of for like my newsfeed

In Google now or Google something it has a new name now it's not Google now whatever you get what I mean and so that's kind of just how I've been using it okay let's check another battery as we do it is 12:30 1:00 p.m. I took it

Off at about 8 o'clock in the morning and we are at 82% good one okay stop real quick that like a late lunch or I mean it's a really early dinner I'm also probably gonna get

Eggs it's all confusing either way let's check it on the battery it is 4:30 p.m. and we are at 52% all right just had dinner with David ml

Here from Android Authority you don't know and now we're gonna go to our studio which I've kind of mentioned before me him hi mate from POC and now MJ from gadget match and Michael Fisher mister mobile all got a studio together

And it's a couple blocks away so we're gonna go check that out and then head to your new apartment I check that out today yeah it's exciting frightening well seven minutes

okay change of plans we ended up actually going to David's apartment and

Meeting Fisher there they're moving in together it's exciting but now we're at the studio kind of showing that to David and while we're here we might as well check it on the battery so it is now 11 26 p.m. and we are at 15%

okay and call it a night check on the battery it is 12:09 in the

Morning and it is at 11% and here's my screen on time and all of my usage and all that fun stuff so you can check that out and it's it's not great it's not horrible either also keep in mind that it was powering two identical screens

The entire time now so honesty I think this would be a bit more useful really and I would want to use the dual screens more if there were more apps that utilize the full screen capability that can go all the way across and if this

Bezel was smaller and between it does remind me of another device that was recently launched or recently announced and that's the new Microsoft Surface duo now there's a reason though that Microsoft announced it and it's not

Coming out until the next holiday season is it not this year but December of 2020 and that's because they wanted to drum up a lot of excitement about it and get developers on board within Android to do this exact thing where they can make

Their apps all work and expand across the screens and decide what sits on one and what's it together what happens when you rotate and and how to spread them across the screens all that fun stuff that's gonna take some time and that

Just it just doesn't happen here for that exact reason now I do though the other part of me does commend LG for even trying this because you know I mean people I think forget that LG does pioneer a lot of stuff they don't

Necessarily always get the credit for it like wide-angle cameras everybody's talking about right now yeah g5 the LG g5 was the first phone to introduce that years ago nobody talks about that another thing

I'd like to commend them for though on this device is that I think they're finally being more aggressive with their pricing as they probably should have been for a while now $7.00 for this with the dual screen is a good deal for sure

And as much as I found myself preferring to actually use the phone without the extra screen there were times that I did want to use it and it is free with the device so it's cool to like bring along to use

In those moments when I would like the extra screen sort of again like how there are times you want to use your laptop and then times you want to dock it and have some extra screen real estate with dual monitors there guys

Real more test LG GE X and the dual screen accessory well I don't you guys think about this phone about this video any improvements I can make in the next one try to focus more on the phone in this one because

You guys told me to do so so let me know what else you think in the comments appreciate your feedback as always otherwise feelings video please sense of it or share it it's greatly appreciated also check out the rest of my channel if
