SMARTPHONE LG ANDROID SERIES | FEATURES LG K8 2017
Today we present another smartphone from LG K Series of 2017. In fact, the smartphone LG speak K8 version in 2017 coming out in the first and second quarter of this year, probably in February. It was announced in December 2016 but its release is scheduled for the first months of the new year. With this smartphone we place ourselves at a mid-range level. Its price is not exaggerated in fact as well as its hardware and software features. Yeah, but how much it costs, where its price? How many gigs of Ram and Rom owns and how many inch screen and the resolution is reached? There is a reader for fingerprints, and we are faced with a single or dual sim phone sim and assembling micro or nano sim? Let’s also understand that chipset, processor and graphics card mounts and power has its own battery which pensaimo is not removable. What do you think of this new LG and which judgments given on precisely this model? Here is a review, a full review on the LG smartphone K8 (2017) with hardware and software, technical data, specifications and images.

FEATURES – LG K8
This smartphone weighs 142 grams and is therefore not exactly a featherweight but also because it can be a dual sim as well as a nano sim sim that can be nano type. Manages obviously GSM, HSPA and 4G LTE and has a screen size of 5 inches in width with a resolution of 1280×720 pixels and technology for the IPS type LCD panel. while the pixel density is 294 ppi. This course a multitouch system and how the operating system Android we Nougat in version 7.0. Ram memory is here of 1.5 giga mentr the internal 16 giga but fortunately you can expand using a micro sd for up to 32 gigabytes in order to save data as possible that otherwise would not in the internal memory.
The chipset is a Qualcomm MSM8917 Snapdragon 425, and a discrete chipset that thanks to the quad-core processor achieves an output of 1.4 Ghz, certainly not exceptional power but even mediocre which uses, among other things, the Cortex-A53 technology. Also good graphics card which is a Adreno 308, rarely used but that seems to exploit very well the 16 million colors on a capacitive screen. Excellent source-which is a 13 megapixel camera with autofocus and flash the LEDs but also has several features such as geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection and can record video in full HD at 1080p @ 30fps. The secondary is obviously less powerful but still reaches 5 megapixels and does its duty in the step of selfie which are discrete.
This unfortunately is not a wlan card dual band and therefore does not connect to networks managed with the frequency of 5 GHz but still has a card with WiFi 802.11 b / g / n connection protocols, and also features Wi-Fi Direct and Hotspot and it lacks DLNA system to exchange data. However the exchange of data can take place using a last generation system Bluetooth 4.2, A2DP, LE and there is also the NFC system that protects us even when we do shop online and we want to avoid disappointment. He could not miss the GPS system that is based on A-GPS model, GLONASS, and even FM radio RDS although no useful function for direct recording of what we hear. The USB input is the typical v2.0 microUSB connector and we also have the headphone output by 3.5 inches while the loudspeakers greatly improve the sound at low and medium frequencies.
Present an HTML5 browser, a media player that opens photos and videos of different formats, an editor that allows us to apply effects, filters, rotate your picture and video and a classical player that opens different types of documents as PDF files. Unfortunately few sensors available that are only accelerometer and proximity and lacks a fingerprint reader while the battery, removable type, lithium ion and has a capacity of 2500 mAh, a fairly good power for the hardware and software features that this LG K8 in 2017 version possesses.
Evaluation Board – LG K8 2017
Team Rating: you’ve no doubt heard that this model, as well as the basic one, the K4 is not really high level and besides, the price makes us understand why no more than 160 euro. Unfortunately, even in this model we did not include some features that we consider to be essential today, but it also lacks a bit of processing power as well as a few gigs on the memories. In fact, if the processor could be slightly powerful than the one used is the Ram memory that worries us because having only 1.5 giga today certainly is not enough. The inserted external memory also can not have a high capacity and this can be a handicap for those who need to save a lot of stuff and at this point it will be better to use a cloud space for saving data. The wlan card is dual band and we would have expected a screen with full HD resolution as the main camera records photos and videos in full HD, but we are not certain that they can really have a resolution of this kind. In all this, the battery does its dirty work having enough power to manage everything whereas it also lacks a reader for fingerprints. This sufficiency of hardware and software may be the only positive note is a 13-megapixel main camera that can precisely record good video and take good photos.
