LG G8s has everything that a contemporary smartphone should have. There is a dual-channel Wi-Fi module that works in 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, fast LTE cat. 19, and a navigation receiver that supports GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and BeiDou systems. From physical sockets we have a universal jack and a USB type C socket with OTG. While being outside the smartphone had no problems with catching fix and connecting to satellites, achieving great accuracy and stable signal. Inside a building, even next to the window, the smartphone did not manage to connect with satellites – and many cheaper smartphones managed to do this. But on a road, while driving a car or while walking, it worked perfectly.
The smartphone ensures a decent quality of calls. The microphone nicely transmits the voice and the sound from the receiver is clear and loud enough, though I would not describe it as crystal clear. I had no problems with understanding my interlocutor (and vice versa). The loud speaking mode works great and the microphone for noises reduction proved to be efficient.
Memory and efficiency
The built-in memory in the reviewed LG smartphone is 128 GB, but the user is left with less, around 104 GB. If this space for data and apps will not be enough, we can use the additional memory drive – on the expense of one of the SIM cards.
I do not think that there is anyone who would complain about the efficiency – in the LG G8s model the manufacturer has placed Snapdragon 855 with 2.84 GHz, supported by 6GB of RAM and Adreno 640 GPU. Both benchmarks results and an everyday usage of the phone show that this is in fact the highest shelf. I do not have slightest concerns when it comes to speed, smoothness and efficiency while handling multimedia, in demanding games or while working with many apps in the background.
