You could never say 1 phone is a pos compared to another phone. People don't have the same needs. One maybe satisfied with what the 3a has to offer. One guy's pos is another guy's treasure!
I'm pretty sure they're referring to the price-to-performance ratio. That's a metric that can be objectively measured and if that's how you're comparing then yes, the Pixel 3A does very poorly vs this and a myriad of other phones.

On a phone mediocre software (LG's Android skin) is something that a lot of the times can be fixed or improved (stock theme + Nova Launcher, GCam). Not so the case with mediocre hardware (Snapdragon 670, 4GB of RAM, eMMC storage). It's not like a computer where you can just swap out parts.

Interesting that this doesn't support CDMA networks. I thought all of the variants sold in the US market had the hardware but the firmware artificially locks down the bands available. Guess that's the case with this one and unfortunately unlike previous LG phones they decided to be arseholes about not allowing you to cross flash firmware starting with this one. In that case it looks like getting an unlocked Sprint variant is your 2nd best choice after factory unlocked as the stock firmware's only missing support for one LTE band vs the Unlocked version (Band 30 for AT&T) and still supports CDMA.

People are comparing LG G8 to Pixel 3a? Really?

G8 is a flagship device with 1440P screen with 80+% screen to body ratio, 8GB/128GB, SD 855, USB 3.1, bigger battery and wireless charging, What does Pixel 3a have besides the camera?

Also Oneplus 6T at $299 seem like a better deal than both because I prefer my phone to last longer and 1080P screen helps with that.

Pixel 3a has the exact same camera as Pixel 3. You shouldn't write a review based on other reviews that you read! I own a 3a, my wife owns a Pixel 3
I believe the front facing cameras are different. The back cameras are the same, but the reviews I've read are that the picture quality due to the difference in processing is a but lower in the 3a. Although it's said that the difference isn't noticeable to most people. That said, people should do their own research and go with whatever they like. I'm leaning towards the 3a just because of the cheaper price but waiting for a black Friday deal. Smilie

iPhone ������ 11 Pro or nothing. Life is too short to use cheap subpar phones. iPhone is exciting. LG is meh ������
lol,

Iphony. The iphone is outdated the moment it comes out. its 1-2 years behind every android phone each model for the last few models.

and the best part is apple shafts you each year yet you still take it in the rear and accept it while you hold it open for them.

knowing full well they will be going USB-C next year, and having reverse wireless charging. features that hsouldve been in this years, and when they do finally bring it to the iphone,, android phones would have had it for 2-3 years prior while they are already innovating with new features for their current gen phones. yet people still accept them as a company with open arms... WHY?

lol i cant believe people in here are comparing it to pixel3A? that crap is a watered down flagship. thats like the samsung a50 or whatever crap that is to samsung s10.
thats like the iphone value or whatever they call it to the current model.

this is full flagship phone G8 is a flagship device with 1440P screen with 80+% screen to body ratio, 8GB/128GB, SD 855, USB 3.1, bigger battery and wireless charging,

the g8 is superior in every which way possible except 2 things------stock android and faster updates

stock android is not worth enough to lose all the other better features. and updates is null and void when many in this thread change their damn phone each year anyways so thats not even relevant for many.

I will ask again, I am not proceeding with this because I can't confirm that this will include the manufacture warranty. My last set of LG phones (G6's) I needed to use my CC extended warranty since both of them crapped out. Without the manufacture warranty, I won't even try LG. Can anyone confirm?

I wouldn't buy it if you need the warranty- I saw somewhere in these comments that LG is particular about that.

So I bit the bullet, and bought it yesterday. I can't see that this wouldn't apply as a valid proof of purchase. I will see if I can register with LG's site for the second year as well. Thanks

I'm going to repost what I posted in an earlier response. Let me know what you think. Additionally, given that new phones like this are selling for $380 shipped, how much do you think you would net on the sale of that second phone to offset the extra phone? Maybe $350?

Here is my prior post:

"…$800 + tax on the full price of both devices. Assuming 6%, that's $896 for 2 phones or $448 per device and you essentially have a contract with T-Mobile for 2 years of service. Additionally, if you do the upgrade in store you have to pay $20/device assistance charge. If you do it online...good luck with that...personally, never been able to figure out how to take advantage of these BOGO deals online. Isn't $375 (less any coupons or ebay bucks) a better deal?

UPDATE: Looks like T-Mobile dropped the price down to $750, but that still works out to $420 per device.
The T-Mobile version was $620 when it first launched back in April. They raised the price later.
