LG K8 - 2017 Smartphone - 5" - 1.5GB RAM - 16GB ROM - 13MP Camera - Black


Case


As in the LG K10 (2017) before, we can attest that the smaller sibling has a good-quality plastic case that sits in the hand ergonomically. Despite its smaller dimensions, the LG K8 (2017) brings slightly more weight to the scale and is also minimally thicker than the LG K10 (2017), though at 8.1 mm (0.32 in) it is still quite slim. There are two case colors: Titanium and Gold. However, these relate only to the color of the back and the frame, the front is always black. In our test unit, the back can be removed and the battery can be exchanged. This is not completely unusual in this price class, but in the Lenovo K6, for example, the battery cannot be removed.
The smartphone can hardly be warped, but it creaks when we try. The front and back are quite pressure sensitive; even with light pressure we can see waves forming in the liquid crystal display.

Features


16 GB of mass storage are absolutely customary in the given price range. With its 1.5 GB of RAM, the LG K8 (2017) is similarly on a good level, even though nowadays there are many devices with 2 GB. With USB-OTG, the relatively current bluetooth 4.2, WiFi Direct, and NFC, the list of features is quite comprehensive for this price class. Although a fingerprint sensor is nowadays often praised as a highlight in this class, the LG dispenses with it.
In addition, the storage can be expanded, that is to say, via microSD card. The manufacturer specifies up to 32 GB, but in our test, a 64 GB card was also recognized, therefore it must be a question of marketing, rather than an actual limit.

Software


It is good that LG bets on the current Android 7 even for an affordable smartphone. The security patches are from January 1, 2017, and with that are not really that current anymore. At the time of our testing, an update was not available, and in affordable devices it is rather unlikely that the manufacturer will still deliver on that. LG does not use stock Android, but installs its own user interface, which is different in some details and offers some extended functions, such as the knock-code for unlocking, and slightly expanded setting options.
There are several pre-installed apps that support the management of the smartphone and provide extended functions. LG subsidizes the affordable price by installing a few apps, like Facebook, for example. However, since these are just three apps, we can live with that. 

Communication and GPS


Although the SoC supports WLAN 802.11ac, with the LG K8 (2017) you have to be content with 802.11 b/g/n. In our WLAN standard test, the LG K8 (2017) achieves customary results and its reception is even a little faster than most comparison devices. In no way does it reach the excellent transfer rates of the Asus Zenfone Go,  however. Subjectively, all the pages are loaded quickly near the router, and even when scrolling, images hardly need to be reloaded. A ten-meter distance and three walls between the smartphone and access point, however, are giving the LG K8 (2017) some noticeable trouble: Although the reception is still decent at 3/4, the pages load noticeably slower, and when scrolling, the pictures are often not displayed for a long time, until they are finally reloaded.The LG K8 (2017) supports LTE, which nowadays is standard even on cheap smartphones. The maximum speed that can be reached is slower than the LG K10 (2017): 150 MBit/s for download and 50 MBit/s for upload. However, even these speeds are just theoretical and in most cases the network cannot reach anywhere near that, so that a speed difference probably will not be noticeable. The reception is decent, inside inner-city buildings we always had at least half the signal strength in the well-established German Vodafone net.
