Hands-on LG K8 review and unboxing

Our LG K8 (K350N) smartphone unboxing and hands-on review takes a closer look at LG’s 5-inch budget mobile, which just hit the UK. Check out our full LG K8 review too, for our in-depth thoughts on this £99 smartphone.

We recently reviewed LG’s first cut-price blower of 2016, the LG K4, which at just 4.5-inches is even more dinky than Apple’s iPhone 6s (and not much bigger than the super-tiny iPhone SE). The difference is, LG’s K series of phones is much cheaper, aimed at anyone who wants a no-frills, bargain blower.

LG’s K8 just landed at Recombu Towers, a slightly bigger cheapy handset at 5-inches. You get an 8MP camera and LG’s funky ‘2.5D screen’, but is the LG K8 a worthy mobile for those on a tight budget? Here’s our LG K8 K350N unboxing and first-look review, where we check out the K8’s design, screen, interface and features, as well as the cameras.

LG K8 UK specs

The LG K8 is a 5-inch mobile with a 720p HD display, running the latest version of Android Marshmallow. You get a basic quad-core 1.3GHz Mediatek processor backed by 1.5GB of RAM, plus 8 or 16GB of storage that can be expanded using a microSD memory card (up to a further 32GB).

On the back you have an 8MP camera, while the front of the LG K8 houses a 5MP selfie camera. Rounding off the phone’s specs is a 2125mAh battery.
