The K8 is a mid-range device from LG which looks to offer a well-designed and attractive smartphone without making you pay a premium price.
With the K8 you'll have access to a modern smartphone with all the features you come to expect from a new phone including quality cameras and a bright, high-definition display.
With a sleek form factor, 5.0 inch HD screen and great features under the hood, the LG K8 could be just the phone for you.
Easy to pick up and play with, the K8 features a woven removable back panel for a comfortable hold. Taking this off also gives you access to the removable battery, plus the SIM and memory card slots.
The screen is one of the standout features on this mid-range smartphone. The 2.5D curved glass edges allow for a comfortable hold, with LG's In-Cell technology being used to keep the high-definition 5-inch screen displaying content beautifully in low or brightly-lit environments.
Android's latest software being provided out of the box with this device is a really nice touch from LG.
We don’t always see the latest OS on mid-range phones - many manufacturers release their more affordable smartphones with last year's system so there doesn't have to be as much work put in to modify it.
With the world's most popular mobile operating system at your fingertips,navigating your phone and taking advantage of Google's full suite of applications and services will be a breeze.
Doze is one new feature, intelligently saving battery usage when the device and apps are not in use. This clever introduction will mean that you shouldn’t have to worry about carrying a charger around with you all day which can only be a positive.
A good camera is something that we all need on any range smartphone these days and the K8 delivers in this department.
LG have a good reputation regarding cameras and here they have provided us with an 8MP rear facing camera and a 5MP front facing camera. This means that whether you are snapping a selfie or a picturesque scene, the K8 has you covered in both departments in terms of quality.
Added features in the camera app can make taking pictures much easier. Gesture Shot allows the phone to automatically take a snap when the camera recognises a gesture, such as closing your hand into a ball. There's also a built in 'selfie flash' mode that fully illuminates the screen for an instant to help light selfies.
