Innovative smartphone in a slightly toned-down version

Battery

The 3550 mAh battery provides good lifespans. It will be enough for a whole day of an intensive work, and with a less exploitive usage – even two days. Basically it does not provide impressive lifespans, but they are perfectly acceptable.

The charger added to the set is not the fastest one. In order to fully charger the smartphone with it we need around 2 hours. The possibility of wireless charging is an advantage – the Qi technology is supported. And here are lifespans in different scenarios:

  • lifespan with the display on (YouTube, 1 SIM card, active Wi-Fi module, 50% screen brightness, minimum sound level) – 13 hours and 24 minutes,
  • PC Mark battery test result – it was impossible to conduct it due to software incompatibility,
  • Geekbench (full discharge) – 5970 points, discharge after 9 hours and 54 minutes,
  • an hour of video streaming (Chrome, 1 SIM card, active Wi-Fi module, 50% screen brightness) - 8%,
  • an hour of video streaming from the phones memory (airplane mode, 50% screen brightness) - 6-7%,
  • half an hour using online navigation - 6-8%,
  • half an hour playing Real Racing 3 - 8%,
  • 8 hours in the standby mode – around 6%.


Summary

LG G8s ThinQ is a peculiar model. On the one hand it is packed with innovative technologies and functions, which cannot be found in any other smartphones, but on the other it is clearly toned down when to comes to its archetype, that is G8 ThinQ. With the launch price of 769 euro it does not have an easy job among flagships of the competition, like Huawei P30/P30 Pro, OnePlus 7 Pro, Samsung Galaxy S10e or Oppo Reno 10x Zoom. But we know that LG smartphones prices drop down fast, so soon LG G8s ThinQ will be a much more lucrative purchase.
