I have this phone, and I like it because of the headphone jack.
They got a pretty nice, quad dac in here, with amplification to drive some pretty powerful headphones that other devices or bluetooth wouldn't be able to.

Dual screen is a nice extra, I do use it much more than I expected to - it's nice to have completely separate screens for multitasking and watching videos.

Finally, the battery is incredible. It's advertised to have a 4000mah battery, but the most interesting thing was that when I first bought it (over a year ago), my accubattery app showed a 4500mah battery estimate. Basically, the battery was larger than advertised, and it definitely showed in longevity. Even today, an entire year later, I'm at 4200mah effective capacity, and can go 2 days of pretty regular use without even thinking about recharging.

Downsides? Not much for this phone alone - it does everything I need, from music, to apps, to games, to just browsing the web.

THAT SAID: there's one thing to keep in mind about this phone - these days you can get the LG V60 thinq, basically the successor to this phone, with the dual screen accessory, for around $400. The deals for the V60 may be fewer and further between, but I've seen it at costco for $400 with the dual screen, and it took all of my willpower to not buy it then and there. Wait a bit, and you'll have a chance to get what's basically an upgrade in every way over the G8x, for around the same price. (this was the deal btw https://slickdeals.net/f/14502593-costco-t-mobile-lg-v60-5g-dual-screen-smartphone-no-new-line-required-399-99?src=SiteSearchV2Algo1)
Don't blame LG (entirely) - it's the carriers. This is one of their latest scams to locking ~your~ phone to their, one network, to prevent portability, and using their paying customers like bargaining chips, so they can make potentially make money from, or have leverage with, other carriers over roaming/tower agreements. I know I'm generalizing here, but VoLTE licensing and compatibility is ridiculous. Can you imagine, building a communication protocol/tool for the ~global phone networks~, in this day and age, that's proprietary and incompatible with everyone else? When something doesn't add up, follow the money.

If you don't mind used, you can probably find this for under $200.
I've seen some listings for the dualscreen accessory alone selling for around $50.

I just got this phone through Swappa (Sprint) for 185$ very good phone definitely feels like a premium phone, not really interested in the dual screen, it does have a 4000mah which is more of a reason why I got it. So far so good. Screen finger print does suck tho.
