The G8X ThinQ has refined LG's dual-screen setup, making it a more symmetrical, usable feature. If you're looking for extra screen real estate that still fits in your pocket it's really the only choice at the moment.

While the gaming aspect is intriguing, and the multi-tasking will appeal to some, the G8X ThinQ is still a niche phone, and so is the dual-screen accessory. By selling this model globally, LG said it’s making an effort to regain some of the premium market share it has lost over the last few years. B...

If you’re not sold on the Dual Screen, then the G8X is a fairly dull flagship for 2019 - decent specs and drab design combine for a handset that shouldn’t disappoint but wouldn’t do much to excite either. For those intrigued by a second screen however, the G8X Dual Screen proves that LG might be ont...

It’s hard to tell how good the LG G8X might be at this stage for various reasons but mainly because LG has been so inconsistent with its phones over the past few years. It’s followed good phones up with poor ones with such regularity that you just don’t know what you’re going to get. First impressio...

A minor update

The G8X ThinQ appears to be a minor update to the G8 from the Spring, if it can be considered an update at all - the way we see it, it's meant to complement, rather than replace. As such it's not really all that exciting a device, but we can appreciate how it could have some people interested, in no small part thanks to the DualScreen.

If you’re not sold on the Dual Screen, then the G8X is a fairly dull flagship for 2019 - decent specs and drab design combine for a handset that shouldn’t disappoint but wouldn’t do much to excite either. For those intrigued by a second screen however, the G8X Dual Screen proves that LG might be onto something, fixing almost every pain point from the original design. Folding phones may be the future, but until then the G8X proves that the dual display has its place.

It’s followed good phones up with poor ones with such regularity that you just don’t know what you’re going to get. First impressions of this one are more positive than the original LG G8 but we’ll have to wait and see.

Two screens for the price of one

from Tom's Guide

The LG G8X ThinQ Dual Screen smartphone combines power, functionality and a little creativity for an impressive device, at least for the limited amount of time I had with it. Multitasking feels natural, and the screens are simply beautiful. And you have the option of rocking a relatively normal-sized phone when you want to travel light.

Doubling down on two screens

from Pocket-lint

The Dual Screen idea does have merit and, save for the increased weight and size, it could well be a simple way to give more of us extended smartphone real estate without the expense of a foldable. LG has also improved the design here, but needs a genuine smartphone contender to go alongside it.

A kind of mashup of the V50 and G8

from TrustedReviews

If the dual screen accessory was something that drew you to the LG V50, then you should certainly consider this model instead. It fixes many of the issues of the first-gen unit and makes a much stronger case for the product to exist.
