Reviews for the LG K8

70% LG K8 Review: In Depth
Source: Recombu English
The LG K8 is a solid all-round affordable mobile that gives the excellent Vodafone Smart Prime 7 a run for its money. If you're after a no-frills everyday handset or a dependable second mobile for taking to festivals and the rest, we'd happily recommend it. Of course, Vodafone customers will likely prefer the Smart Prime 7, which at just £75 offers even better value for your cash. If you're on a different network, the K8 is a good alternative.
