  • Great Phone

    It was a very good phone that fit well in your hand and was very well rounded. Only downside was the battery never lasted me all day and after about a year I started to experience lag.

  • Best all-around daily driver by LG ever

    The best bang for your buck in 2019, even though comes only in refurbished options. The Korean version is the best value as it has the acclaimed Quad DAC and 64 GB of storage and all the 4G bands you need in Europe. This version is the first to get the latest updates, even the Pie in October 2019. On the downside, there are occasional Korean scripts in the settings, few
    European languages (Morelocale 2 gets reset each reboot) and the dreaded roaming clock is non-removable (on Android 9). The system is power efficient and the phone is of perfect size. Camera has great support for Gcam app with the phenomenal NightSight (including for selfies), as camera2api is enabled out of the box. No root options for Korean variants, but it is not very much needed. Get one if you need a dependable and sturdy phone with the acceptable cameras and great sound quality

    I think this is a great phone. The downsides are the software updates, especially because mine is an Australian model. It takes exceptional photos in daytime, but at night it's a bit grainy and the selfie camera is awful. It's pretty fast and the pre-installed software is OK. Asphalt 9 lags on it so the GPU isn't great. Another thing to take into consideration is that it isn't popular so repairs, cases and screen protectors will be hard to get.

  • Have been using this phone 1,5 years, can say have had some major problems, but fixed most of them.

    After a year replaced battery, because phone was shutting down in cold weather, below 0 degrees. The second thing that broke was the sim tray, it was a pain in the a** to change it, because broken sim tray pieces stuck in the slot, has to disassemble the whole phone. The third ar most annoying problem of all is the GSM signal coverage ar call quality, other had the same thing, tought it was a software issue, but after a year the issue was no fixed, so the calls were mostly low quality or people could not call me, because of no signal. For an LG flagship phone it was the worst experience these past 18 months with this phone, had an 100 eur chinese UMI phone to a better job. But one thing i could mention is the camera that is great.

What is a Ki score?
Ki is an automatic score based on the specifications and prices of devices. It is calculated using over 200 variables to rank smartphones, tablets and other devices from best to worst.
How do we calculate the Ki?

In this case, to determine the score we evaluate 5 general aspects:

  • Design and screen
  • Hardware and performance
  • Camera
  • Connectivity
  • Battery

Once these 5 factors have been rated, we introduce the price variable. This means that any two devices with the same ratings get a different Ki score for quality vs price.

Even a device objectively worse than another may have a higher Ki score if it has a better price.

Does the Ki score change?

The Ki varies as time goes by. As new devices with better specifications enter the market the Ki score of older devices will go down, always being compensated of their decrease in price.
