LG’s K series has had a polarizing effect on us as of late as the releases belonging to this series have sometimes been okay but have mostly let us down. The K8 2017 gives us a similar feeling as the smartphone is both a mixture of one or two good features but on the other hand is also devoid of some necessary traits a 2017 smartphone should be having.
The K8 2017, just like the older LG K8 and K7 devices, features an overall plastic build with relatively satisfying dimensions. The typically LG designed volume and power buttons reside peacefully on the removable plastic back panel while its dimensions which include an 8.1mm width and 142g weight are as mentioned before, satisfying.
The smartphone features a 5.0 inches IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 294ppi pixel density. This translates into a 720p resolution that to date, hasn’t made the best of partnerships with a 5.0 inches display but hopefully the K8 2017 might prove to be an exception.
Both the smartphone’s cameras mimic its more expensive sibling, the LG K10 2017; the primary camera features a 13 megapixel sensor with an LED flash and customary camera features which include geo-tagging, touch focus and face detection. Its selfie camera shelters a 5 megapixel sensor which should be adequate enough to cater for your everyday needs.
The K8 2017 is powered by a 1.4 GHz Octa-Core Cortex A-53 processor with a disappointing amount of RAM at 1.5 gigs. This certainly isn’t adequate to run the built-in Android Nougat and many users won’t be pleased to see the smartphone carrying even less than 2GB RAM for an OS as mighty as the Nougat.
The smartphone’s internal storage banks at 16GB of which around 11GB will be available to the user with an external memory card slot also in attendance. Dual-SIM capability is optionally present and so is a 2500 mAh removable battery. That being said, unfortunately there’re no signs of fast charging or a fingerprint scanner so we’ll understand if you have reservations about the K8 2017.
