Design and display

Strong protection

The LG K8 (2017)’s screen is protected by Gorilla Glass 3 and features a woven rear cover round the back. The smartphone is a comfortable size, and will fit perfectly in the palm of your hand


The 5-inch display is amazingly responsive thanks to the advanced in-cell technology that’s built-in to the device. It’s also HD - so photos, videos and web pages all look clear and full of detail.


13MP rear camera

The 13MP rear camera on the K8 (2017) takes incredibly detailed photographs both day and night. You can change the settings, apply filters and use Tap & Shot - a handy feature that lets you press anywhere on the screen to quickly capture a photo.

5MP selfie camera

The 5MP front-facing camera takes sharp selfies and is also great for video calls – simply download a video-chatting app like Skype or Google’s Duo, and you’re good go. And when you take selfies, the screen lights up to make sure all your photo comes out looking bright and at their best. 

Under the hood

Quad-core power

The 1.4GHz quad-core processor is powerful and efficient so everything you do is smooth and seamless. And because it’s quad-core and has 1.5GB RAM, you can multitask with ease.  

Replaceable battery

The battery holds enough power to keep you going all day, at 2,500mAh capacity. And can even replace it with a new one if it runs out.

LG K8 2017 is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good All rounder For Your Money! Camera is very good and detailed and the sound is excellent. The screen colour is not as vibrant as some phones but I have no complaints. I find the internet speed is good and have not noticed any lag. The thing I am impressed with is the battery which lasts two days of moderate use. If I had to point out a flaw it would be the in call volume on the highest setting was too low during a call. But it was easily fixed by a app from the play store. Just goes to show you can buy a excellent phone for a reasonable price without breaking the bank!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ive had this phone 3 months and for a budget phone its quite good, runs most things fine but once you get alot of apps on it can play up a bit, the camera is not that great compared to an iphone I had previously and as the phone has no built in compass it wont run astronomy apps but for general internet browsing its good but for games its a big no.
