The LG G8X ThinQ is the company's attempt to win back the ground it lost in recent years, Chinese newcomers like Huawei began to swallow up global phone market share. What sets this phone apart however is its compatibility with a Dual Screen attachment, which doubles the size of the display. This could make the G8X an alternative to a foldable phone like the newly improved Galaxy Fold, if you're not quite ready to commit to a totally new form factor.

LG's G8X in all its glory.

Other than the dual screen attachment, this updated version of the LG G8 ThinQ for the most part does away with the bells and whistles of its predecessor and focuses instead on the user experience and the camera.

Gone are the G8's different biometric authentication options. Instead we have just one in-display fingerprint sensor (a first for an LG phone). Also gone is the OLED sound system that LG's been pushing for the past few years on its phone. This is replaced with two "perfectly balanced" 1.2-watt stereo speakers at the top and bottom of the phone.

LG G8X phone lets you pick two screens or one

The G8X features LG's new UX, which brings more space, higher contrast, bolder fonts and night mode to the interface. Other new additions are an updated camera that features a steady cam, AI action shot, an improved portrait mode and 4K time-lapse.

The one unusual standout feature of the G8X ThinQ could help it appeal to a specific but growing niche: people who make ASMR videos. "ASMR mode" is one of the specific video options available through the built-in camera app. Switch it on to boost the microphone capability by 10 decibels to pick up on and emphasize the minutiae of sounds you may be making.

LG’s G8X ThinQ Dual-Screen is a multi-screen compromise

LG’s G8X ThinQ Dual-Screen is a multi-screen compromise The rumors both are, and aren't true. LG has built a dual-screen smartphone that drops around the same time as Samsung's Galaxy Fold and Huawei's Mate X. But it hasn't, because it's an upgraded G8 with a secondary display case similar to what we saw on the V50 ThinQ. Will this mix of flagship specs and a quirky screen case be enough to tempt you? We all know the backstory. LG, struggling against the mobile competition and unwilling to burn cash on gimmicks, has stayed out of the race to make a folding phone. We also know it could do it (and likely has behind the scenes), since its TV division already makes flexible, rolling screens.

The Good The LG G 8 X ThinQ' s second screen accessory gives you two displays, which makes multitasking easier and gaming more comfortable. The water resistant phone also has a headphone jack, expandable memory, wireless charging and an excellent battery life by itself.

A brief test of this, in which I sat whispering creepily at the phone and then watching the recordings back in a bar at a high-end London hotel, did prove to me that the recording volume was definitely boosted in this mode. But not being a connoisseur of ASMR, I find it tricky to say whether the mic setting truly enhances the experience of watching ASMR videos.

LG's G8X ThinQ is its bid to win over the high-end phone market (and ASMR fans) LG hopes to boost sales with a Dual Screen attachment and an in-display fingerprint scanner.

Two screens won me over immediately. However, in person this phone did not impress me. My hope is that since the dual screen case is technically an accessory, that LG or third parties will come out with a Gen 2, or other variants of the case that expand and refine its functionality that G 8 X

The next-generation wireless technology is expected to change your life.

Sprint turned on its network in June, followed shortly thereafter by T-Mobile. UK carrier EE was the first in its country to turn on 5G.
