LG is back with its new flagship device for 2019. LG G8 ThinQ is a nice looking device with a notch on the top. It is having all the things 2019 phone are having when compared to other flagship devices like Samsung S10 plus, iPhone XS Max, etc.
LG has introduced some gimmick feature for the flagship. There are two main features listed below:
- One is the Hand ID. You can use your hand for unlocking the phone just like you use your finger or face.
- The second is the gesture system to interact with the mobile. You can use your hand to control music, open apps, and more.
These two features are good to be heard but when it comes to real world test, things are not smooth as they may seem. Controlling your phone with hand is the thing everyone will not try because it will take time to do a certain function instead you can use your finger to perform the desired action.
