The LG K8 (2018) comes with a 5 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

The LG K8 (2018)'s battery capacity is 2500 mAh, a standard level for these types of phones. Compared to other smartphones, the LG K8 (2018) has a standard battery life. It should not be a problem for normal use. However, if you spend a lot of time online or playing games, you may find the battery life a bit dissatisfying.

LG K8 (2018)'s size

The LG K8 (2018) is 2.9 inches (73.2 mm) wide, 5.8 inches (146.3 mm) tall, and 0.3 inches (8.2 mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the LG K8 (2018), it weighs about 152 oz (152 g). The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

In giving an overall rating to the LG K8 (2018), while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

LG K8 (2018)'s screen

The LG K8 (2018) has a 5 inch screen. The iPhone X has a big screen, which very likely won't ever trouble you. Just be aware that it's not a very good size for writing long blocks of text.

The resolution of the LG K8 (2018)'s screen is pretty much standard. It shouldn't be a problem for normal use, but it might prove to be a bit dissatisfying for those who wish to better enjoy their photos, videos, or games.

The CPU performance of LG K8 (2018)

The LG K8 (2018) has a run-of-the-mill processing power of 1.3GHz×4(Quad core), so while you'll be able to play 2D games with ease, it's a little lacking for 3D games. Outside of games, the phone runs most things quite smoothly, but certain apps can cause a bit of slowdown.

The LG K8 (2018) has 2GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The overall operational speed of the LG K8 (2018) rates as a mid-range smartphone. While you will probably not experience much sluggishness or lag with normal use, we recommend a phone at least one tier higher if you want to enjoy games or videos.

LG K8 (2018)'s storage capacity

The LG K8 (2018) has 16GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.
