  • This thing absolutely sucks.

    Ive had it for a little more than a year and a half and the internal storage quite literally doesnt work, I cant install ANY games or apps because I need to uninstall EVERY OTHER THING ON MY PHONE, if you're a person looking to buy this, don't, save your money for something else this phone is a piece of crap.

  • It sucks even if you want a cheap phone there many other better options.

    It sucks even if you want a cheap phone there many other better options. I bought it 137 euros, I regret it so much, it was a really bad purchase! In my opinion, it shouldn't cost more than 70-75 euros according to its standards and performance.

    LG K8 ....

    The truth about this cell phone is that it has many negative things, it disconnects me from the wifi, the display was damaged with a drop of less than a meter, it has pre-installed apps and they interfere in the ram, the truth is a cel that is not worth the shame maybe when it came out it was an excellent cel but now it is totally obsolete, but one of the things that gives more pity than all that is the battery, the battery really if I'm lucky for about 4 hours but if I'm not lucky, which is the usual I download in less than 3 or up to 2 hours.

    Terrible cell phone

    It can't be worse. Bad photos. It can't stand the operating system and it is already totally obsolete. Minimum power Battery that can't stand even half a day.

    It has more negative things than positive.

    I think it is not worth it for demanding games and performance, but on the positive side its design is very beautiful but unfortunately it is very fragile.

    LG K8, the worst way to lose your money

    LG K8 (LG-X240, Claro Argentina) From the first day it hangs permanently, the GPS is lost in the first corner and then disconnected, the apps fail and close, the performance is pathetic (all soooooooo much), the radio gets change alone, and when the situation is no more, it restarts itself. Can you imagine what it is like not to be able to answer an incoming call because the screen to accept it does not get to be drawn? Well, that is the K8. Even after the factory reset (only solution provided by the null support of Claro and LG) the same symptoms reappear within a few minutes. Obviously, either the design is bad or it is a failed unit for which the manufacturer and the seller want to take responsibility for us (just as serious as the other). First and last experience with this brand.

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.
